No one is connecting the dots- We hire, elect, people, government, to accomplish tasks, like roads, bridges, schools. And they are able to do this cause we give them the money, taxes, to get the job done. So did we do this by ourselves? Your damned right we did. Unfortunately sometimes we hire, elect, crooks.

A Free Market Brings Down Health Costs

Longest running universal health care has been the UK, started around 1948, and it is now showing signs of complete collapse. Canada, our Northern neighbor has begun to allow private practice and hospitals due to lack a services. As stated in the article Mass. is having problems after a short time embracing universal care. We have had other states that tried and failed, Tenn for instance. Most Dr. will admit that over half of their staff are required to handle the paperwork involved with required government and insurance forms. Amish people pay a highly discounted fee, why? It's cash in hand, no paperwork and certainty of payment. There are solutions, and the simple ones seem to be the best and most successful.
Paper vs plastic-It would take 5 trucks to deliver the same amount of what 1 truck could deliver in plastic. I can not imaging how many would be required for canvas. Then there is the production costs, cutting the trees, chopping them up, converting them to paper, the amount of energy used vs plastic has to be staggering, canvas is even more. Adding all of these added costs is where they come up with the envior. impact.
Not against immigrants, as long as they become Americans, speak English, follow our laws. What is happening is the exact opposite and this sets up barriers that cause conflicts. We are one people, our forefather founded a united people. These past few years we have had a leader who has done his best to separate all of us along different lines, race, economic, beliefs, etc. Dividing us to no end. Tea Party people were screaming NO, this is about us, no you. We saw what happened in 2010, what could happen 2012 could be even more astounding and unite the people again.

Yes, men made mistakes and the church covered it up for years, but this issue affects more than them, it affect everyone and our freedoms. Reading the prior comments there is full agreement with their law suits. Obama and his crew of thugs will be getting another slap down, unfortunately this will come at a cost to tax payers, but it may be well worth the fight.
To the point of how many more people would have been born. Doing the math, those people would be in the work force earning tax revenue for the government. Our national debt could have been erased. Not wanted? Humm, over a million couples were listed on the adoption wants, planned parenthood aborted over 300, 000, that would have at least given 1/3 of those wanting childern to have them. Abortion along with same sex, porn, etc. is the aim of those desiring to decline a society. Why, what is the purpose? Decline in moral values and the degrading of the family unit is and has been the key to the destruction of cultures. How is behind this? Obviously the workings of evil, nothing good has resulted from this.

America Now a “Pro-Life” Nation

I read an amazing article yesterday about how had all of these abortion not taken place that our economy would be much better. The math accomplished on this was something. Everyone of these abortions was a potential worker, as such they were potential revenue for government. Had they been born our national debt would be gone. Each one of those aborted had couple eager to adopt, but were never given a chance. We are watching other societies that embraced this concept of selective abortion and how it has affected their cultures and their economies in a very negative manner. So here we are doing the same thing expecting a different result. Insanity.
The economic impact has been huge. Had these abortions not happened America would have many more working people paying taxes reducing our national debt. This is just simple math. Unwanted children? No. Everyone of those aborted had willing couples eager to adopt. Heck they are willing to adopt foreign children since there are so few available here.

Every nation has it's own identity and that makes it unique unto itself. Tourist visit other nations to experience this and this helps the local economy. With the current open border concept this uniqueness is vanishing and with that so will tourism. It would be a shame to see all of this vanish.
