@maryann72961.. Changed too much to go back to the way we were? I agree that a candidate should run on values and principles, but whose? Not every value or principle embraced by our framers were embraced by 100% by the new republic. However, the fact that these principles and values were grounded in Judea-Christian ideology culminated in a society that was, for the most part at least respectful to other people’s differences and beliefs. A stark difference in what we have today, where even a person’s opinion is persecuted for not adhering to the status qua. A candidate who is a defender of the Constitution has to be an advocate of limited centralized government. He or she can’t be the first without the latter. Furthermore, They would also be a staunch supporter of separation of powers that are being decimated today. The connection that Americans have is the right to live in a free society. It is the differences that make us exceptional to others who only get to look from the outside in. In our society, there are only equals in mediocrity and self loathing. Unfortunately, America also allows the opportunity to not be self-reliant and productive which results now in almost half the country not participating in their own futures but instead rely on others to determine their own worth and outcome. This country was not intended to be a perfect utopia and it never will be. I will not embrace everything that is spoon fed to me by mass media and nor will you.

Obviously, you have either never served, taken the oath or are just dumb. Obama did what was right for Obama, period.

And everyone else just stood there and did nothing….thats why he did what he did because he knew no one would do anything. How surprised do you think he would have been if he would have been knocked on his ass right quick like in front of of all those people. This kinda thing doesn’t happen everywhere. Only in places where POS’s such as that guy thinks he can get away with it.

@PAULBROWN…”Army PC idiots in charge”,.hmmm
So, what you are saying is that the politically correct U.S. Army is what made this happen? So, are you referring to Army policy or the troops in general? Let me guess..Marine, right? It doesn’t matter. Or, have you never served. That’s ok too, but before you start passing judgement on the troops that are sworn to protect your right to express your opinion you should really look at this situation as a whole from beginning to end. There is no PC policy that would have prevented this coward from doing what he did. This guy was on a mission to disrupt and kill as many people he could. He acted as a rogue and refused to quit even after he started getting hit with bullets. He attacked a facility that was in retrospect vulnerable to an attack such as the one he perpetrated. As in virtually all cases of mass shootings, the shooter attacks places and people where they are the most vulnerable to such attack. Clearly, he planned this and chose this location based on the security. He attacked when he knew there would be a high number of personnel inside. Your answer to prevent this would have been what? More non politically correct regulations? and what would they be?

This is pretty much how you can tell a liberal from a conservative. Whereas a liberal will spout off with mostly negative personal garbage such as “hopefully he will be taking his last breath.” Conservatives tend to walk a more strict path to the facts. This guy, and you hit it right on top of the nail, is in a whole other class by himself. They all spoke about Sen West as if he was a dog; which is the main reason reason why I’m taking the time to post this message. The double standard in this country is unbelievable. I am a vet who has fought in combat, and I can tell you that it boils my blood to see some no good little smart mouth punk like the one in the video attempting to belittle a brother in arms by making comments that I guess he feels makes himself cute. What a freakin idiot. The sad part is that people actually believe this garbage and repeat it. So, now we are supposed to believe that all GOP conservatives are all white folks who are hate mongers? I’m so mad I keep jumping from one thing to the next so I’ll leave with this thought: This is to all Americans, not just the fair complected ones, “What you tolerate, you encourage” Keep letting these wet behind the ears rattle snakes run our country and we will be sorry. There’s so many facts out there about how these clowns are ruining our country but people turn a blind eye to it because there too worried about the lines at starbucks.
