Like passing a law without reading it – Nancy Pelosi must think we should welcome all illegal immigrates so we can find out what they will do and who will take care of them when they get here.

How about no more government programs until we come up with a program to pay for all the government programs that we can’t pay for?
“Governing” means leading. Are politicians leaders or followers? I’m talking “politicians” here - not just Democrats.
"Someone once said: It isn't that Christianity has been tried and found wanting; it has been tried and found difficult—and abandoned. Perhaps the same thing might be said about freedom. The American people are becoming more and more afraid of, and are running away from, their own revolution." . . . Foundation for Economic Education founder, author, Leonard E. Read (1898-1983) . . .
Agree. But that's not what the Democrats have been working on
I believe it’s more than “44%.” I have known politically active, flag waving, liberal Democrats who have been trying to “fundamentally change America” for the past 60 years. You don’t change something you like.

To paraphrase the late, great Joseph Sobran: Iraq is just one more big government program.

Why are we investigating the IRS instead of just abolishing it? There are better, more efficient, fair and economical ways to collect taxes. The only drawback is, a simplified tax would diminish both Party's political power. You wouldn't know it from listening to the Republicans, but the IRS has worse problems than missing emails and blatant misuse of power. The IRS has over 70,000 pages of inefficient, wasteful, burdensome, costly Tax Code. Of course, we could come up with a better tax system . . . but neither Party wants to. A 71,684 page Tax Code is a phoney "jobs program" and a source for political power. Republicans must find lost email a convenient scapegoat, a happy diversion from the real IRS problem.

Paul/Carson - 2016 I’d vote for that ticket and I’m not even a Republican.

Maybe wars never really end . . . they just morph into the next war. Iraq comes to mind.
