See my reply to clee394. Walter Williams (and others) have explained the math. We get back MUCH MORE than we put in. We would do much better left to save the money ourselves. But that's irrelevant. The money is taken from us by force and that is wrong, immoral and unconstitutional. We are each responsible for our own lives. We're not victims or beggars or supplicants. I'm sick to death of that attitude. Once this was a free country.

Walter Williams has already written an article thoroughly explaining how the math works out. We get a great deal more than we ever put in. Furthermore, we have no choice about putting it in, since it's taken from us by force. It's wrong, immoral, and unconstitutional. ALL the entitlements, all the handouts in any form, come from money confiscated by force from all the people who go to work every day.

The government should have no involvement in business. If it has no involvement, lobbying congress will not occur. The problem is fundamental: the government interferes, the economy suffers in one way or another, and the only true solution is to get the government out of the way.
YES!! Not "should have been" -- Should be ...
It's not ridiculous to name the truth. Slavery is involuntary servitude. I expect that you and most of the men who fought in WWII would have volunteered (I doubt if that's true for Vietnam) -- but the fact is, they had no choice.
James Madison has my vote too. And if he'll eliminate ALL entitlements, he'll save this country.
I agree wholeheartedly. The stress on democracy is causing untold havoc. We are a Constitutional Republic, meaning it's not a question of majority preference, but of the limits placed on government by the Constitution.
He's been my choice for a long time. Walker has the experience, the tenacity, the smarts, and the ideas. He also can really appeal to people as I saw when present at a speech he made. He can rally the Independents which is very important. Most of the current names being talked of cannot.

A Real Term Limit

There's only one way to keep politicians from constantly seeking office. Remove their power. Limit the power of government to the duties expressed in our Constitution: securing the rights of citizens. If they have nothing to do with the economy - as they shouldn't - they would not have much power or interest in retaining it. The only proper function of the government is the Courts, and the military. State governments may have more powers but are still limited if securing rights is the goal.

All entitlement programs are unconstitutional and immoral and should be phased out.

We are entitled to secede since the federal government is violating our rights in so many fundamental ways. When the South seceded, they were rebelling because they wished to continue violating the rights of human beings. Whether practical or desirable, the US had the right to stop them.
