Handouts and little to no work. Privilege and more privilege.

I'd like the immigration thing put to rest. Stop the flood of illegals coming in, and kick the current ones out...anchor babies and all. Implement E Verify and start holding companies responsible for hiring illegals.


Healthcare. Let's get something that works for everyone implemented. There are a lot of models around the globe that work , there has got to be a way to study each one and come up with something that doesn't take money from those that are successful and give it to those that are not. Back the big pharma companies into a corner and demand some reasonable drug prices. Make healthcare insurance purchasable over state lines, and make it more transparent. If people could shop around for the least expensive MRI , for example, the healthcare prices would come down. Free market, style.


Push taking care of our veterans to the top of what is important. We should not see any of them on the street, or committing suicide because they couldn't afford help.


Stop with the attacks on the 2A. No more "common sense" legislation...because it doesn't work and just chips away and the rights of the law abiding.


Limit the amount of hand outs that are going to people that are able bodied and that can work.

Put America , it's policies, it's people, and our goods first. Stop helping other countries, and stop policing others. We need to stop kowtowing to every group, religion, etc that whines that the policies in this country offends them....don't like it , get over it or leave.

I want americans to quit insulting another's character, trying to get them fired, suing them, hitting them with bike locks, for having a different opinion.

I want americans to calm down, quit screaming at each other, and regain a sense of humor.

I want to go to a movie, watch a tv show, and read a msm news article without being bombarded by leftist propaganda.

I also want world peace.

You basically summed it up then.. Conservatives are selfish and greedy. Liberals are more open to helping out fellow humans.. Thank you for posting this

And you basically summed it up then. Conservatives believe in the freedom to decide who, and how much, you help. Liberals believe in taking your possessions through force, and giving to who THEY decide are most deserving.

But to paraphrase columnist Joseph Sorban: "Liberals" never accuse their economically-ignorant followers of "greed" for envying, and seeking to redistribute the fruits of someone else's labor; It is only conservatives who are accused of "greed", for seeking to keep what they made by their own efforts.

And I'm prepared to wait a long time to see how the not-so-"liberals" try to rebut this.

Absolutely none of that will happen, because of lobbying and corruption.

Three issues I will not waver on:
1. Capitalism
2. Upholding the constitution
3. Sovereignty

I don't want big government running my life. I want to eat, speak and drive what I want, not someone dictating to me about stupid garbage .


I am sick of the innuendo and insinuations that MSM feeds to the public without any facts.



I want to have freedom to make my own choices, not some damn college professor telling me how to think. That is what they do today.


I want to own a gun to protect my family from the crazies out there who come to rob or kill you for their kicks.


I want the drugs off the streets so the 70 thousand people will not overdose on these lethal drugs that come from over the border.



I am sick of the political correctness. We can't say a damn thing today without someone putting a spin on it that it is racist, homophobic, or some name . We have a right to our opinions .


Freedom to have an opinion .
