Rep Ellison took and oath to protect and defend the Constitution. That he is openly stating the opposite is grounds for removing him from office.

How sad. These are the people who caused Hadrian's Wall to be built, because they would not be ruled by the Romans. Adam Smith was a Scot, and the free market is still the most efficient way to distribute goods and services. Apparently, the Clearances worked, and the independent spirit has been deported.
From an evolutionary standpoint, intelligence is not necessarily a trait that is advantageous, and, therefore, selected. If you want to stop the dumb and lazy from reproducing, stop paying them to do so.
Cortney, Last May, while meeting with the Russian president, Dmitri Medvedev, Barack Obama was caught on tape asking Medvedev to relay a message to Vladimir Putin about "giving him space" because he would have more "flexibility" after the election in November. That was treason. As for GOP greed vs Democrat greed, who is greedier, the person who wants to keep the money he has earned, or the person who wants to take someone else's money, rather than earn his own? As for Presidents being reviled, your statement about President Bush and Vice-President Cheney says it all. President Bush was, and still is, subjected to endless criticism of every decision he made. And Obama still blames Bush when things don't work out as Obama...
He's an American citizen. If they can deny him his rights, then anyone's can be denied with a simple label. Its best to let our legal system work. We are all equal before the law; if we tamper with that, we tamper with the basic principles of our Republic.
Obama's solutions to his perceived voting problems are merely an attempt to make it easier to cheat. Some of these things are not problems at all. For example, The O states that limited English proficiency makes it difficult to vote. Well, in order to vote, you must be a citizen. In order to become a citizen, you must live in the United States for at least 5 years. If you've lived in the US for 5 years, and you can't speak English, you're not really trying.
Let's see. Minimun wage is $7.25/hour. For a worker with a BS degree, and 15 years experience, perhaps the hourly rate is about 4 times the minimum wage. If the minimum wage is increased to $22/hour, then the experienced degree holder's wage should also triple, to about $90/hour. Sen Warren thinks that an employer can raise his prices by pennies when his costs are tripling? Don't forget, everyone's costs will go up, so the suppliers, truckers, cleaners, etc. will all be tripling their prices to accomodate the new minimun wage. Sen Warren is responsible for the Consumer Financial Protecton Bureau, which is the group trying to figure out how to confiscate our private retirement funds. I miss you, Senator Brown.

So, why are we paying them? If I told my employer that I had no obligation to respond to his requests or orders, he'd stop paying me.
It kills me, too.

they could just stop spending money on things they have no business dealing in. It is not the role of the government to provide welfare to the lazy or health care to anyone; nor is it up to the government save corporations from their bad managers by bailing them out with money taken from the people; notoriously ineffecient entities such as Amtrak should be privatized. If there is no market for passenger rail service, then it will go the way of the horse and buggy. It is the responsiblity of parents to feed their children, not public schools. I could go on, but I think even a liberal can understand that you can't balance a budget if you spend more money than you have.
