Federal government should have absolutely no say in our social lives...PERIOD! If the individual states, or better yet, local munincipalities want to make laws concerning social issues within the state, that's a different story. By keeping social issues at local levels, we are able to keep competition between local areas and states as guidelines to keep us from being completely irresponsible with tax dollars. If California, which is now the most impovershed state in the U.S., wants to feed and house everyone from immigrants to those who simply don't care to work, then California would become the state for immigrants and those who don't want to work to flock to. Just how long would California stay so Socialistically liberal if there was no federal money pouring in to support all of their generosities?
I think a person of intelligence politically can see that no party is the answer. Blaming either side is very naive way of thinking. I get going on libs, don't get me wrong. I don't understand their way of thinking, but they don't understand mine. Who's right and who's wrong? I don't think anybody wants to intentionally harm our country. Its entitlements that drive me crazy more than anything. I don't mind helping the young, old or mentally or physically handicapped, they can't do much and I don't mind giving somebody a hand-up in life and helping them for a reasonable amount of time. But there has to be a limit on how much free crap they get for a healthy and workable person. I've never taken anything from anybody. I'm not rich, I'm been down before. I just worked harder and got my way out of it. So I really don't understand any amount of help for a healthy person. But I'll cut them some slack because circumstances are different for each person. But no lifelong or generational welfare programs.
Liberals are for every type of immorality that the human mind can imagine. Just think how gross it is for one guy to put his device in another guy's hairy rectum. Yet liberals are 100% for this. Liberals are 100% for murder of unborn children. Liberals are 100% for the gay and lesbian lifestyle which destroys people's lives and produces no children.
Republicans are against all of that. That's why people who say there is no difference between democrats and republicans are using some frame of reference I don't understand. Maybe they are libertarians who want to be fiscaly conservative, but who are as immoral as democrats. With libertarians, add all of the above immoral behavior along with smoking pot, meth, crack and anything else.
It's the loss of our moral base and or Christian heritage that is destroying us. The republicans should strike out for moral and social issues even harder. They are being advised to do the opposite which will mean the end of the republican party. I'm sure Karl Rove will nominate some watered down middle-of-the-road republican in 2016--like Rubio. Santorum is a republican that could have made a different, but Karl Rove and his buddies did not like him. Karl Rove only wants a fiscal conservative and not a moral conservative. In Rick Santorum's case, he was a Christian conservative. Very few republicans have the guts to stand up to liberal democrats because they are such a lying and nasty group of people who have no morals. Nobody wants to get the poison of liberal democrats spewed all over them.
IMO you should be kicked to the curb here too.
I have tried to be decent to you but no more.
Your rhetoric is disturbing and quite honestly twisted.
Not sure you or your ideology should be allowed on a public forum.
Reo....that first paragraph is a bit graphic IMHO and could have been worded allot better.
mcjo....please keep a cool head...everyone is expected to treat others with "decency" in this forum.
I caution both of you to take a step back so things don't get out of hand. Thanks.
Post is being reviewed.
Enough. Thread closed.
We will try re-opening thread. Please refrain from broad brush generalizations and attacks on other members. Neither are productive to the discussion. Thanks.
The GORP is dead.... I would say Long live the GORP.... but there isnt a new GORP to replace the old GORP.
I heard Neil Boortz saying today how Marco Rubio is the best hope of the republican party now......lol Hispanics just are not going to fall for that one... Pugs would be better off with Chris Christie....but because he praised Obama he will be torn apart if he decides to run in 2016.
Probably gonna be Biden or the Hillmeister in 2016....
Like this guy? :D
