SocialismSuxEveryday – Perhaps Republicans should nominate a conservative this time around. Ted Cruz is the only one currently running. If you think a lot of conservative voters stayed home after being duped by McCain, don’t think for second that the rest of conservative voters, who did vote for Romney, will be fooled a 3rd time. For someone like Jeb Bush to win, he’d have to own the independent votes. There’s a small chance with everything that’s come out on Hillary, but expect a mass exodus of conservative voters from the Republican party, and an overwhelming amount of Ted Cruz write-ins. I’ll personally never vote for the lesser of two evils again.

Rand won’t vote for things if they don’t go far enough in say, reducing the deficit, or protecting our Constitutional rights. He stands on principle (the Constitution). He doesn’t vote along, to get along. Don’t like him for his foreign policy, his position on marijuana, etc., but at least have an honest debate on the rest.

The same anti-war fantasy world the left irrationally lives in until someone with a D behind their name occupies the White House, and then the protests stop as the President attempts to enter us into multiple wars, or the one where the President owns up to his decisions against all opposition from the left and actually provides reasoning for why we are fighting those wars, whether we disagree or not. The people (Congress) should decide if any war is worthy of our blood and sacrifice. Not a President who acts like a dictator.

The mistake that Bush had under control, until Obama stepped in and withdrew all our troops, and then we ended up with ISIS? Job well done, if his goal was more war. Not that the person who headed the coalition to overthrow the Libyan government (without congressional approval), and insisted that we arm the Syrian rebels (ISIS) along with John McCain is ever in favor of more war…

Can you imagine if an elected official at your County Courthouse decided to keep county records stored on their personal computer, instead of in the office, didn’t keep backups, and then the hard drive crashed, or their home burnt down? They wouldn’t be facing questions about how it happened, they’d be pleading the 5th until their court date. Why should it be any different for people working for the federal government?

MindTheGOP – Bush doubled the national deficit. Everyone here is aware of that, and is firmly against increasing our debt and the size of our government. Obama quadrupled the national deficit from there. Obama and the Congressional Democrats instituted a government take over of the Health Care system. 1/6th of the economy. To put forward that the government grew more under Bush than Obama is absurd. Obama’s goal is socialism. Bush’s was not. Bush can be labeled a Rhino, a BIG government Republican, an establishment Republican, but a progressive, he is not. Glenn Beck may label establishment Republican’s, progressives, but he knows there’s a world of difference between Bush and Obama. As do we.

Obama and McCain always seem to be in agreement on where to send our troops next. So much for running as anti-Bush candidates.

Supporting bailouts or NSA spying doesn’t make someone a progressive, unless the intent is a government takeover of the banks, auto industry, etc. and using modern technology to control the citizenry. GW’s end game was never socialism and these two issues hardly make him a progressive. Obama is a progressive who wants to ‘fundamentally transform’ the U.S. and that’s why these policies are so harmful in the wrong hands. Jeb Bush and his endorsement of Common Core is another example of a politician on the right being on the wrong side of an issue. At least understand what a progressive is before replying to every comment. Also, John McCain may not have wanted someone as conservative as GW at the Republican Convention, or perhaps it was the fact that a two term President is the last person anyone wants to hear from about the future of our nation.

Kirsten Powers has always come off as the adolescent sitting at the adults table. To her credit, she has come around on certain issues since being on FOX news.

“The FairTax will, for the first time, tax undocumented workers who now evade U.S. income and payroll taxes. Under the FairTax, all persons living in the U.S. pay taxes, whether they are here legally or illegally.
Under our current tax system, many non-citizens do not pay income and payroll taxes, even though they are here earning wages and are legally required to do so. They may also be receiving benefits in the form of health care, education, roads, and much more. Under the FairTax, both lawful and unlawful residents will pay taxes when they purchase goods and services for consumption here; however, only lawful residents are eligible to receive the FairTax prebate which effectively eliminates taxes on spending up to the poverty level.”

Support the Fair Tax. Don’t settle for a Flat Tax. The Constitution is fundamentally opposed to the federal income tax.
April 14, 2015 at 9:04pm
A Fair Tax coupled with a Balanced Budget amendment would fix the problem immediately. The federal income tax allows the federal government to collect as much money as it sees fit from each household in America. The money the federal government would collect from a Fair Tax is dependent upon how much each family consumes. The federal government would be forced to create prosperous economic conditions and not have a guaranteed blank check in which to spend money if conditions are bad. The government’s ‘success’ (amount of tax revenue), would be tied to how much Americans can afford to spend (consume).

No, the only fair tax… is the Fair Tax. A flat tax is only fair in the sense that each individual pays an equal share (percentage) of their income, but it unfairly taxes money that is earned and allows complete government intrusion into our lives. The 16th amendment requires all of us to answer to the federal government (not them to us) as the Constitution intended. The founders would have started a 2nd Revolution over this tyrannical practice alone. The income tax is the reason the federal government has an unlimited number of blank checks to spend our money. The motives and reasoning behind selling it to the American public are based on theft, greed and envy, which violates several of the Commandments. We should be taxed on how much we consume. We shouldn’t be punished for success. Fair Tax all the way.

Classical liberalism is diametrically opposed to progressivism (control). When ‘liberals’ decided they needed maximum liberty, without any personal responsibility, it invited in progressivism (reliance on the government). The correct terms for gateway socialists (the modern democrat party) are leftists, radical leftists or progressives.

Her words speak for them-self:
“The Jesus I know, love, talk about and choose to retain was a radical, freedom-loving, justice-seeking, potentially queer (because he was either asexual or a priest married to a prostitute), feminist healer, unimpressed by scripture-quoters and religious law-keepers, seduced neither by power nor evil.”
She is off the rails insane, nothing christian about her.

That’s funny, because even the Libertarian party won’t take a pro-abortion stance.

He was also a Common Core supporter before he wasn’t, but to be fair, there’s a difference between openly supporting amnesty (Walker, Obama, Clinton, McCain, JBush, etc.) and not campaigning on sending the illegal immigrants back from whence they came (Cruz, Paul, etc.). Supporting the latter is political suicide, but it doesn’t stop conservatives from dishonestly using it against a candidate they don’t like.
If this country stopped giving welfare benefits to illegals and started punishing businesses for hiring illegals there would be no need to send anyone back to anywhere. They would leave, and they would stop coming. We would have to step up border control (as if there is any) just to handle the mass exodus.
 April 8, 2015 at 12:22pm
The Constitution (Cruz) and only the Constitution (Paul). Denying one or the other (because of a 2% difference in voting record) is a vote for Jeb Bush.
 April 8, 2015 at 12:16pm
Perhaps when a conservative has the balls to repeat what Paul said:
“Paul went on to explain his subtle position on foreign aid, which is that eventually it should be ended everywhere, but because it must be done gradually, the U.S. should start by phasing it away from countries that “burn our flag.”
The rest of the world will fall in line, or perish.
