When are we going to get over this ridiculous idea that it is our responsibility to police the world. Lets try out some of the old school isolationism for a while, redirect our resources, money spent on overseas deployments, foreign aid (all of it) and other operational costs for maintaining a global presence, back into the needs we have here at home and let the rest of the world deal with their own problems for a while.
There is no need for term limits, simply eliminate all of the perks that come along with being voted in to office. Replace pensions with limited 401k matches, eliminate any and all gifts, restrict the ability to lobby to at least 15 years for individuals that held office and put strict guidelines around lobbying of family members, and finally actually establish penalties and enforce them on those that break the law. Once you start restriciting the perks that these people can squeeze out of the system and eliminate all of the fancy benefits, I think we will find out very quickly that the vast majority of people currently in office are not actually there for the good of their constituents, but for the good their position can do them.
You cant brain wash them if you cant talk to them.

This was nothing but another payout to big donors to Obama in 2008. Epic systems, a company that sells one of these medical records systems and helps hospitals and doctors offices to implement them, was wait for it, a major donor to Obama in 2008. Epic systems gave $239,347 to political parties in 2007 - 2008, 96% of that total went to Democrats.
How does this NOT lead to runaway inflation? Because you can guarantee that they will not just stop with $2 trillion dollars of useless coins. This will be the Zimbabwe States of America in no time, or perhaps I should have said the Kenyan States of America with a slight muslim lean. Thanks 51% of America for reinserting the fool into his slippers.
participating in this scam would teach their kids to do any different? I am supposed to teach my children to grow up, be responsible, get a job to take care of themselves and their families, while the west side trash teaches theirs how to take money from a government that does nothing but steal it from people like me. So how is Romneys 47% comment inaccurate?

I have an idea, give me back what I put in, I wont even ask for interest, and I will not take any social security benefits, ever. Sounds like a plan to me, oh what was that, you need to steal money from people like me, that have been working since they were 16, consistently making higher wages and bettering themselves to pay for the slackers, low lifes, and bums that sit on their collective rear ends and soak up my money while having contributed a fraction of what they end up taking out. Can someone remind me why I waste my time working myself to death when I could have just quit school, knocked up some girls and collected welfare while talking on my nice obama smartphone, cash payouts, and food stamps? Or why anyone that is already
The conflict fostered by the NAACP is then used to reinforce their message of hate with their base and perpetuate a culture of racism among blacks. Dont get me wrong, there are certainly a large number of ignorant whites out there that hate people because the color of their skin, but does that justify an organization for fomenting the level of hate that the NAACP does? Why is it that when a black woman walks up to a friend of mine who works at a retail store, spills her cup of soda all over the floor and proceeds to call her a cr.acker and that she needs to clean up that mess, that no one calls that racism?
The NAACP will always fight against any black man or woman that embraces the values of a conservative and fiscally responsible government. The leadership at the NAACP count on an uneducated and apathetic base of people that can be used to further their agenda without asking inconvenient questions about how those goals are beneficial to anyone other than the people in those leadership roles. Any organization that is actually interested in helping its members works to find mutually beneficial relationships and remove obstacles and hinderances from the memberships path to its goals. The NAACP does everything in its power to continually play the race card and ensure that there is conflict between blacks and whites.
