Chaffetz is no saint, but he’s probably a better choice than the anointed McCarthy.
We will always have to choose from “the cream of the crap” in politicians. Often, it’s obvious when one is dirty or spineless, but we don’t always understand both sides of a given candidate’s story fully. Here is the worst anyone has to say about Chaffetz, take it for what it’s worth.

Sadly even that might be a bit optimistic, IMHO.

At least Conservatives actually have a sizable, educated grassroots movement; it’s called most of the middle class. The Left is comprised of a few feckless elitists giving treats to the entitlement-driven clueless and their useful idiot cheerleaders who can’t be bothered to get off their butts for future’s sake. This is why the Tea Party chaps the Left so bad, we have what they want.

You’re right. If that person fails to recognize that compromising solid, common sense conservative fiscal and foreign policy decisions is tantamount to suggesting that “just a little poison” is ok, they will be vilified as well.
We have allowed America to be slowly pushed so far toward the political Left, toward giant, irresponsible, tyrannical government that Regan Democrats look like Anarchists these days. We aren’t even anywhere near a Conservative zip code! We cannot compromise until we get the fulcrum moved back to the middle of the American political scale where it belongs.

Here is where we see why Trump is NOT the guy America needs. Donald Trump’s tax plan is a simpler Progressive Income Tax! Seriously, Mr. Brilliant? The problem here is that America’s income tax is illegal because it is progressive. Taxes have two categories and they BOTH TAX EVERYONE EQUALLY. Progressive income tax is wealth redistribution. Period.
Don, buddy… a large number of people in America ALREADY pay zero tax or see a net negative tax, this is not new, this what we currently have! Taxing the “rich” (who are disproportionately America’s job creators) to the bone will not incentivize them to grow or take the risks that would stimulate the economy. It will make things worse. Don, you need to read up on how a Flat Tax system saved Russia and many of the former Soviet states. Call Mr. Art Laffer, he’ll explain it to you. Or, is it that you have already sold out and agreed to play stooge for the NWO with this repackaged load of “already-doing-this-self-destructive-thing”?

Yep, and that is where we need to keep Trump, as a loud mouthed commentator. The man has no scruples other than public image and feeding his HUUUGE ego. We are smaller for thinking that he is Presidential material. Why would we elect a caricature of the GOP fat cat just to tick off the left? That is “cutting off our nose to spite our face”. We’re in this together, it is time to be thoughtful, principled and try to rise above politics or we will never come out of this intact.

Um, the term is actually R.I.N.O. It’s the acronym for: Republican In Name Only. Thought you might want to know…
 September 19, 2015 at 11:06pm
So what if Trump could win? He is an unprincipled prince, a man who has been playing with other-people’s money his whole life. Why are so many of you people fired up about a sleazy, 1%-er pretending to be a conservative? Do you honestly think he will give a hoot about the concerns of the American middle class conservatives once he gets elected? PLEEEEEASE! Trump-mania has people taking leave of their senses!

Sour Grapes my friend. Dismissing, out of hand, what Fiorina said with a silly technicality just shows that you have no concern for the fundamental truths surrounding the stories coming out of this abhorrent practice…

Carson is a good man, but a gun-grabber and is weak on illegal immigration. We don’t need a conservative ideologue, we need a conservative LEADER.
I also agree with the author that 2016 IS about character and while I think Carson has it, he doesn’t have the political skills necessary. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has the skills but is devoid of real character we need. A sleazy 1%-ER is going to represent the American middle class? Really?
I’m watching Walker, Cruz, Fiorina and Paul.

Ahh… no. The fabric of society is underpinned by natural law. This doesn’t include hyper-sexuality we have in TV and movies, or homosexuality and other deviant practices. This is just further symptom of the rapid downward social cycle we are in right now. Most people’s lives are not defined by who or what we sleep with, unless you’re LBGT. Why is that, I wonder? This would only be sad except that the militant among them have chosen to use this time of social decline to ram their agenda down the throat of society with hateful forced acceptance. That’s not ok.

It has been a recent practice of the rich and powerful to wait until they have sucked dry whatever business entity that they are responsible for and then they elect a woman as CEO/Chairman, etc to take the fall for their incompetence and/or greed. (Why do you think Janet Yellen is the Fed chief right now?). I am not a feminist by any stretch, but IMHO dirty pool is not ok in ANY game. So, I think we should Carly Fiorina a fair look (outside of the goings-on at HP).
Seriously? and Trrump doesn’t come off as angry and bitter? Really?

Just because abortion is legal does not make it a just law or even establish that it should be lawful. You say “individual freedom is more important …” then what about the individual freedom of the baby? Just because a person is helpless and depends on another makes them no less deserving of their “individual freedom”.

“G) Try as they may, Democrats lose the White House and lose big. 100% Guaranteed. Slide all of your chips across the table because it is over (technically it has been over for a while). The sound of liberty will ring from the White House once again. Get ready (#WarRoomsWork) ”
Seriously? Can’t you see that America (as we knew it) is over. It sort of worked from time to time, but we have been sold out to Globalism and all the power it wields. This is why GW Bush signed the Patriot Act, NAFTA, et al. Liberty WILL NOT ring from the White House until there is an unprecedented, epic collapse and reset, if ever, and if Liberty does make a resurgence it could be decades (or more) away. In the mean time they will continue to try to make it APPEAR as though something wonderful has happened. PLEASE understand that the last semi-free election America had was Ronald Reagan. Since then we have only had the illusion of choice. DEM = GOP = Selling out of American sovereignty. I don’t expect you to accept this right away, it took me several years. But please don’t keep peddling false hope to others. We must face facts before we can recover. As Thomas Sowell once said: “reality is not optional”
We still have to overcome McConnell and Boehner, and the rest of the scum and villainy. This is the only reason I'd like to see Trump in there. He is the only candidate I see as being able to intimidate ALL of the scoundrels. Of course, he may be one himself, but I want Boehner and McConnell to fry. Perhaps take Cornyn and a few of the other traitors with them.
And we have to overcome all the polling place cheating. How do you get 125% voting for Obama in a state and then say most Republicans didn’t vote?

What makes you think she HASN’T become a clown? She has proven time and time again to be a very poor judge of character when it comes to politics. All she is now is a sad GOP cheerleader for anyone she thinks can win an election. Sarah needs to learn how to lead, and by that I mean away from the “two-party” system and the illusion of choice.
 September 10, 2015 at 11:18pm
Be careful what you ask for. The pendulum is about to swing and we don’t want neo-con, globalism-on-steroids, or GW Bush v2.0. Trump is NOT a good man, nor is he a conservative. He is a spoiled rich kid, used to getting what he wants. If anyone loses his soul in DC it’s Trump. He does not he care one whit about you or I. Trump-mania is blind faith in the enemy-of-my-enemy. When the smoke clears and the man takes the oval office it will not be what this country wants. Beck is right, for once, it has been a long time. You have been warned…
Are you masquerading as a Conservative or just a Troll?

Hey Wayne, don’t forget to mention:
That Socialism can look “ok” for a time assuming it’s population tolerates the plethora of taxes it levies to support the freebies. HOWEVER, it is a very brittle system that cannot sustain economic downturn, one bad recession and it usually never recovers, if it even takes a recession to trigger a rapid decline in the first place.
Additionally, Socialism has a problem with scale. When it works temporarily, it is usually in smaller countries and especially ones with state-owned resources, like, oil. Finland and Norway only have slightly more than 5 million people each and they are not growing. America has more than 20 states with more people than that! Norway gets over 30% of its GDP from oil, Finland was ok for a few years, but it’s in trouble now with a large aging population, it is approaching the debt limit set by the EU. So, these countries have had a few “good” years, but today they look a lot more like the rest of Europe than a shining example of Socialism at work. They simply aren’t a good example for what a country as large and diverse as America should do in the future. But the American “proletariat” has never been more ignorant these days, if we set up a few more freebies and wreck the economy a bit more, it could become a reality that we will need to live through before we come out the other side. Who knows how long that will take and what might happen to us in the mean time…

You may have heard about the honor system in the Far East? It is part of the fabric of their culture, for better or worse. They worship their ancestors and any violent acts bring dishonor to everyone in the family alive and dead. Look at the murder rate in general, it mirrors the gun crime numbers. Japan is a very different culture, so Apples and Oranges my friend.
As for America, we are each sovereign people, for better or worse. Where are the highest gun crime rates in the USA? In the cities with the most stringent gun laws.
