1. Require proof of citizenship and residency prior to any disbursement of Federal benefits including Food Stamps, medicaid, section 8, and especially Obamaphones. 2. Require employer e-verify 3. Complete the border fence with Mexico. 4. Severe financial constraints on Mexico until it releases our imprisoned soldier and starts assisting with stopping the human trafficking from further south. 5. Deploy the national guard at the border and forcibly return anyone picked up crossing in from Mexico to Mexico immediately no matter their country of origin. 6. Use all the money saved from not paying federal benefits to deport all other illegal aliens. 7. Reform our immigration processes to allow quality immigration (anyone with special skills or lots of $s) from around the world to immigrate. Allow for limited temporary work visas with substantial cash bonds returned upon exit from the country. 8. Done - Enjoy your freedom.

To the extent the federal highway system supported national defense, it makes sense that the federal government had some role in highway construction. On the other hand, as John noted, the system was completed years ago. It should be turned over to the states for maintenance. States and local governments can and should control further development. There, solved that one.

Perchance did you mean 'flammable' river.
I disagree. Big government Republicans make me look bad. They are worse than Democrats and need to go. The behavior of the NRSC in this episode cannot be tolerated. I don't believe in sitting out elections, but I'd strongly consider voting for anyone by Thad in this one.
No, slimeball politicians give everyone a bad name. Better a democrat that tells you what they're going to do to you than a liar. Big government republicans are worse than big government democrats because they give all of us a bad name. He needs to go.
I guess it makes for interesting drama. Maybe Obama will change his stripes and respect a court opinion, but there is nothing the house or the judiciary can do to force him to comply with any ruling. The executive branch is the enforcer so if the house really has a problem with Obama's actions, they have to impeach.

I also agree with the 1st response to your post. You've quoted the perfect one line analysis of his post above, but you either refuse to understand it or simply cannot. The test is designed to weed out those who make decisions based on emotion rather than principle. Those who would give up liberty for safety or even worse, good feelings. Yes, even white males can talk about abortion and racism. Get over it.
I'm supposed to be heading out to Colorado next week to move my parents out. I'm wondering if maybe we shouldn't just leave everything and beeline the heck out of town. From the sounds of it teenagers out there are spray shooting the neighborhoods willy nilly. Seems to me that if that is the case, I'd want a Governor who doesn't ignore and bald face lie to their face over and over again. There's just soooo many things wrong with this whole discussion.
