to do any of the fine ideas we hear everyday, one thing is first needed: Return to a Constitutional Republic by restoring the representation of the states. When the Senate was perverted into this second "House", competing with the legitimate representatives of "The People" to bribe us with our own money for votes, we became a Democracy doomed to end in tyranny. ZeroCare is just a stone on the path. Without the one capable, motivated check on runaway federal government, there is no hope of averting the New Dark Ages. Repealing the 17th does not guarantee success, but failure is guaranteed without it.

we don't have a Senate. That single capable and motivated check on runaway federal government was perverted into this second "House" in 1913, competing with the legitimate representatives of "The People" to bribe us with our own money for votes. The Republic became this Democracy and any chance of avoiding tyranny was erased.

the Republic ceased to exist when the states lost their representation. This is a Democracy.

We have not been a Republic since then, this is a Democracy.

"everybody agrees" that something has to be done. Why is that? What exactly is it that's so dam wrong with the laws we already have? Why is it that suddenly a few of you have surrendered your sovereignty and you assume we all feel the same way? Something DOES need to be done - we have to stop listening to people like you!

a wise man once said something to the effect that you can't judge legislation by the good it could do in wise hands, but the damage it is much more likely to do in the wrong hands.

when compromise becomes GOP language fpr "give the enemy whatever he wants", then the party deserves to be destroyed.
it's absolutely our fault for electing squishy RINOs who don't show the voters what good government looks like. You can't blame the spoiled brats for being spoiled brats, you blame the parents.
1. ONE tax rate paid by all. No exceptions, no exemptions, no deductions. A REALLY fair share. (this means you, 47%) 2. No withholding. Pay your taxes on the way in to vote. 3. EVERY law must apply equally to all persons. No exceptions. Not even for skin color and ESPECIALLY NOT for elected status.

it's true, Athiests have the only religion that is demonstrably wrong. However it isn't wise to question your own faith too harshly, because in the end, however much you might insist otherwise, it is not possible to KNOW, in fact it's against the rules to know. You must have FAITH, and knowledge would obviate the need for faith. So you can't prove it, and you can't know it, so you're fooling yourself if you claim to KNOW. And so the argument is stupid, you only get farther from comfort (the real reason for religion) the more you try to treat religion to scientific study. Take comfort in religion. Use it as a crutch. Use it as a reason to be good if you need more than the feeling of doing good. Use it as the guideline it is.
