We are the richest democracy, but the least civilized.

Ice crystals are the least of our problems.

I don't know what to say, people need to stop envying people for what they possess either in qualities of personality, physical, and material or wealth.

I see the conservative answers seem to only copy each other, and arent very specific. Youre trying to avoid saying what you really want to say. Ill wait for a couple of you to show your true colors.

That seems legit.
in the pantheon of blind stupidity, one king reigns supreme.

now, maybe you only define "brown people" as Middle Eastern native terrorists. Last I checked brown people include:

African-Americans
Latin Americans
Middle Eastern
Southeast Asian Indians.

and or, basically anybody not Anglo-Saxon. (though "yellow people" Asians never seem to draw the care and concern of your ilk).

wait ... there's a contender to the throne.

Perhaps you believe that the government creates all the effort and money, and we're all lucky they let us keep what they do.

Maybe you think that "100% safety" is more important than understanding regulation is needed, but often overreaches trying to find an "ideal"

And hellifIknow what "money in the form of illicit business deals" means ... other than the ability of elected officials on both sides to enrich themselves and empower people to leave government and enrich themselves too.

I think it was former Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz who said that colored men only wanted 3 things:
Tight P****y
Loose shoes
Warm place to s**t


those still work for me

(p.s. -I'm an old white guy....)

A strong middle class.

One that can afford their own things, and not need the government to provide it for them. Where minimum wage jobs go back to being the jobs of teenagers and not adults with families to feed.

I want us to stop following the policies of the last 50 years that caused us to decimate the middle class by sending our money to China and Mexico, and anywhere else with dirt poor people willing to work for pennies. Also to stop importing poor people in order to drive wages down here.

The worst thing we ever did was open trade with China. We created our own biggest competitor. We had global economic dominance, and we just gave it all away. China would still be a S’hole 3rd world communist country if not for us, and we would still be making the products that the world buys, instead of our companies moving their factories (and jobs) there. I’m old enough to remember when nothing said “Made in China”. Some products said “Made in Taiwan” or “Made in Japan”, but the bulk of our products said “Made in America”. Instead of targeting Cuba for being communist, we should have kept that policy with communist China.

At this point, we cant erase the monster we created, but at least we can elect politicians that put the American people first, ahead of the corporations, and ahead of other countries.

I don't think that reads the way you intend it to.

A government that puts Americans first.

Securing our borders against foreign criminals.

Business-friendly tax laws and regulations.

Pro-civil-rights, INCLUDING the 2nd amendment.

Responsible spending.

Reigning in taxes.

Revision of our immigration and "refugee" laws-only allow those to immigrate that bring skills that benefit the US.

Responsible management of our federal lands (or reduction of federal ownership). Increased logging, responsible forest management.

Work towards fairer trade laws.

A government that focuses on activities that encourage economic and wage growth.

Enforce our internal laws with longer sentences for criminals-stop our soft-on-crime revolving door justice system. Make 3 strikes laws national.

Stop wasting money enforcing laws against weed and other illicit drugs. Legalize it all-and do NOT offer taxpayer funded treatment. You want to blow your mind on drugs, knock yourself out, but don't expect others to save you.

Pass/enforce "vagrancy" laws. Don't turn the rest of the US into a "Skid Row" with bums and druggers living on the sidewalk and crapping in the streets. Get the deadbeats out of our cities. Tough love-clean yourself up, get a job or starve. Institutionalization for those that are actually mentally ill and unable to function.

Kind of strange quoting a Democrat but

Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

I know that was taken from elsewhere but it applies.

There is a reason people want to come here. Don't destroy those reasons letting in those who don't agree with JFK's quote.
