That seems legit.
Excuse me sir, I think you dropped your race card .

I have no problem with brown people coming in if they are waving the US flag and wanting to be part of this great country.

I have a problem with any color person coming in with a strong allegiance to some hell hole country they can't wait to escape from.

To me, this is the number reason I'm on the right. I'm pretty liberal orherwise.

as far as positions, I'll disagree with the nut-job sentiment a few have typed out ...

as Americans, we take care of those who NEED it. So, I understand that I need to pay some taxes for those who are truly unable to pay their own way.

Who those people are is definitely subject to debate though. But I believe as Americans we debate who qualifies and how much, not whether we'll support our fellow AMericans at all.

You can help whomever you want with your own money. Just leave my money alone.

I’d like the Left to comprehend that life is rarely fair and often times not equal.

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.
Agree. I’m old enough to remember how much better it was before we gave away our economy to China.

My principal concern is development of an educational system that educates, rather than indoctrinates.

We'll need a publicly-funded voucher system that allows for the education of all our children, but all of these entities should be privately-owned and -run. Home-schooling should be strongly promoted, as much in order to encourage students to think independently and resist the needless authoritarianism and regimentation that characterize too many post-industrial workplaces, as for any other reason.

I would also like to see our taxation and revenue systems focused more upon lavish and unnecessary consumption; tax luxuries heavily, particularly when direct personal attention is involved, but the rewards of honest labor, investment income, and capital gains should be free from all direct taxes.

They've turned everything into a luxury with their god damn taxes and regulations. Can't work hard, too racist. Can't save too much money... racist. Can't buy anything new... racist. Can't think for one's self.... racist.
