@PaulVincentBeatty Our form of government is a Constitutional Republic, NOT a democracy, which you think you desire. You would quickly change your mind the instant you become a member of the MINORITY on any big issue, and have the opposite viewpoint stuffed down your throat by a simple majority. 


We are designed to be a Nation of Laws where the majority rules according to a set of standards, established by our constitution. Change that and the United States become nothing more than another two-bit, banana republic...

Direct Democracy can't work for more than a few people in a closed group. Democrats can't figure that out because they're dumb as a box of rocks!

SOME regulation does not mean TOTAL CONTROL by government! Require only what is "technically and economically feasible" without going so far as to put the industry out of business, since doing so DESTROYS JOBS!


Let the FREE MARKET decide what survives and what doesn't. That system will ALWAYS get it right in the long run...

It's already been pointed out that there's NO SUCH THING as a "Business" tax. ALL taxes are ultimately paid by the consumer because, to a business, TAXES are simply one element of their "cost to produce." They're taken into account when pricing whatever product or service that business produces...

We used to have such colleges. They didn't allow BLACK students to enroll!


If there's a BLACK college somewhere that won't allow WHITE students to enroll - it's just as much RACIST as the old ALL WHITE Universities were...

True - and they're found in BOTH political parties! They want themselves to have an ADVANTAGE based on their IDEOLOGY! It doesn't matter whether they're RICH or POOR, it just matters WHAT THEY SUPPORT! Whether you support BIG Government or BIGGER Government, you're a PROGRESSIVE! You're one of those people who thinks GOVERNMENT is somehow smarter, collectively, than any INDIVIDUAL and that simply isn't true. People spending THEIR OWN MONEY are MUCH smarter than those spending other people's money. If it's MY MONEY and it's being wasted on something that doesn't work, HASN'T worked for decades, I'll stop spending it! If it's YOUR money, I might decide we simply haven't spent ENOUGH money yet, so I'll add a little more!


That's PROGRESSIVE thinking - the belief that SOMEONE ELSE can spend your money more wisely than YOU can!


Of course, they're talking about YOUR MONEY and not theirs! They'll arrange for some special tax break so they can avoid PAYING that money in the first place...

Corporations don't pay taxes. Taxes are part of their expense (Cost To Produce whatever they sell) and as such, get passed on to their customers in the price of their product. I'm 73 years old and I've been in business ALL MY WORKING LIFE so that's a FACT, not a theory! Raising TAXES on business simply increases the cost to the consumer of WHATEVER they sell.


CONSUMERS PAY ALL TAXES! There can't even be a logical argument to the contrary...

Subsidies for business? If their model isn't profitable it needs to FAIL, not be subsidized by tax money! When business and government work together it's called CRONY CAPITALISM and not a FREE MARKET!

The "Left-Right" paradigm is a RUSE! Today's Democrats and Republicans are just two wings of the SAME PARTY, the Progressive BIG GOVERNMENT party! Republicans just take us to hell in a smaller hand-basket at a slower pace than Democrats! As an example I give you Obama and Boehner - golfing buddies!


We really need to shut the federal government DOWN, then let each State work on it's own problems. If we can build a NEW Federal Republic, OK, but if not, we can at least be Masters of our own future...

The TSA is a creature of the federal government, so the 4th Amendment applies. There is no "exception" to that right for fearful people who are afraid of their shadow, so no matter WHO in Washington thinks it's a "good idea", it's still illegal because it's unconstitutional!

There's nothing controversial about the 4th Amendment. It's simple, straightforward and (like the rest of the US Constitution) applies TO the federal government, to be enforced by "The States and The People", not BY the federal government against "whoever" opposes the current group of rascals!

The 10th Amendment applies. JUST SAY NO, and THEN what will they do? Pass another unconstitutional law so we can JUST SAY NO again?
