  • As a minimum, voting privileges should be suspended while on government assistance. I believe there is a conflict of interest in our current system.

  • Apparently government regulations are a greater threat to our wallets than the income tax we pay. The cost of regulations is a hidden tax that hits every household to the tune of about $15,000 per year.

  • If the democrat party has superior fiscal policies, why do democrat controlled cities have homeless people and people living on government assistance?

  • We live in a sick society that is fed this sickness by the media which was and is caused by our politicians who will do nothing of consequence except talk about applying band aids to a gaping wound. They are more interested in feeding racism instead of dealing with it. They are more interested in making more people dependent on the government…[Read more]

  • Can you imagine what could happen if the US unilaterally stopped spending on war related activities and put that exact same money to use to better our society? I’m saying that every cotton picking US government and company entity that has anything to do with war retools itself to focus it’s attention on the betterment of society. So, the entirety…[Read more]

  • I saw this in a comment on FB and thought it was one of the best I’ve seen. So, here it is.

    Bottom line is this. Our current 2 party system has completely failed us. Perfect example is with the unemployment rate going down, why is black unemployment going up and twice the average? Many other examples exist. They talk about so many things and nothing gets…[Read more]

  • Life Without the Other Party
    You wake up one day to find that everyone of the other party no longer exists AND you have full knowledge of life when they existed AND all the problems that existed, still exist. You are completely surrounded by people of your own party and the government is completely controlled by your party. What do you think it…[Read more]

    • No not all people would be in agreement or able to solve everything because even though you have one party in control which you believe aligns best with your personal beliefs you are going to have members of that party from various religious and even non religious sects of society. Some will believe the key to solving crime is to lock people up…[Read more]

      • That’s my belief as well. In our 2 party system we are very one sided. I’m right and you’re wrong. I’ll take this a bit further. What if all like minded people were in charge, whatever like minded is. I believe no matter how like minded those people are, that like mindedness will break down in very short order and we will be right back where…[Read more]
