Anybody that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on Paul for support. Apply this to modern society. We do need to take our Constitution, as written, enforce it and start over. Our main problem is that there are too many who do not contribute to society that vote how to spend money stolen at gun point (Don't pay your taxes and then tell me it isn't at gunpoint) from the rest of society. The only voting ID that should be required is proof that you paid more into the system than you took.

Who will enforce it? Certainly not these capons in congress..They should have impeached this commie long ago, they are scared to death of the riots....

Which is exactly why the House should let the Bush tax cuts for the rich expire for all Americans and allow sequestration to happen. As Jim Messina said yesterday, "America's youth have voted for their future." I say they should get exactly what they voted for and be forced to live with it. The GOP House members obviously did what they were sent to DC for in 2010 as virtually all were reelected. Now they just need to keep up the good work, to include not appropriating money to bail out those blue states who didn't turn red in 2010 and 2012.

Sorry for the hiatus, work called.

There are people in the Red States that do accept some grants and benefits from the FederalGovernment and we have our share of welfare cheats and gamers.

The difference is the reaction to adversity as demonstrated during Katrina and Sandy versus the huge floods in Cedar Rapids, blizzards inColorado and the flood of 1993.

In the entitled areas of New Orleans and the northeast,when disaster happened, looting started.
Not so in the Red State areas. A different mind set. Clean up after trouble or steal someone else's stuff.

Easy to see the difference.

Look at the map of the election results and you will see what I am talking about.

Blue states: crowd millions of people into areas of limited economic opportunities for average people, be unable to meet your obligations and then demand that the government fix the problem.

OR

Move to an area where hard work is rewarded, work, budget your resources, prosper and live a life that is rewarding and earned.

The contrast is shown, vividly, in the results on the electoral results map.

The Progressives won on Tuesday.

I don't mean the people who voted Democrat who call themselves "progressive." Though they won, too.

I mean the Progressives who've been waging a century-long effort to transform our American-style government into a European-style state.

The words "government" and "state" are often used interchangeably, but they are really different things. According to the founders' vision, the people are sovereign and the government belongs to us. Under the European notion of the state, the people are creatures of the state, significant only as parts of the whole.

This European version of the state can be nice. One...
