I suppose that is the reason I have held my nose and voted for every GOP presidential candidate since Reagan. All have been the lesser of the two evils that had any chance of winning the electoral vote. Reisenwitz is correct, so called "social liberalism" is the road to small government. When the individual has the liberty to govern himself, he only needs enough outside government (city, county, state or federal) to keep things civil. The smallest and simplest form of government is the individual - that is true "social liberalism".

Obstructionism Is Patriotic

What is congress supposed to do, pass bills and more bills? No. Congress is supposes to pass legislation that benefits the citizens of the country. I dare say that at least 90% of what comes out of both houses and lands on the Presidents desk does not benefit the citizens and therefore should have been obstructed before coming out of committee. A "do nothing" congress that passes only a few bills is far better than any congress that passes hundreds of bills for the President to sign.
I googled it. Congress, not the president has the authority to call up the guard. Article I, Section 8, Clause 15. http://constitutionus.com/
I maybe wrong, and please correct me if I am, but no president can call any National Guard to active federal service without the permission of the respective state's governor.
What is the time line for this case and the DNA in question? Mid 80's for the interview would mean even earlier for the trial. DNA was first used in the mid 80's; the first conviction obtained in Florida in 1986. Me thinks something is fishy here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_profiling http://www.forensicmag.com/articles/2005/01/evolution-dna-evidence-crime-solving-judicial-and-legislative-history http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Legal+History+of+DNA+Evidence
State capitalism...isn't that the same thing as fascism? Maybe it is new-speak.

Progressives and the Unnecessary Lie

Some of the best lies contain 90% truth. The truth hooks the unsuspecting into believing the 10% lie. IMO, Obama is very cognizant of his lies; they serve as the means to the end, i.e., the "fundamental change of America".
Sorry, I flagged this by mistake.
Damn, Steven, I've finally found another person who makes the same logical argument that I do about weapon ownership and usage. Of course, the problem with penalties for improper usage is that they would have to be enforced. You really think the bleeding hearts would want to put someone (read an actual criminal) in prison for the illegal use of a weapon during the commission of a crime?
Expect, at best, some nonsensical rhetoric from some mouth piece (Susan Rice?) about this atrocity, but actual action? And don't expect anything real out of the House. Those spineless yahoos won't stand up against the Dems.

Yuck: Michelle for Senate 2016?

If I were a citizen of her state, I would vote for Michelle for the US Senate. I know she would be a far better Senator than the one she would replace. ... The Michelle, I am referring to is NOT the one squatting in the White House, but the outspoken and very politically aware Michelle that resides in Colorado. Yep, that's right, Michelle Malkin.
