Would it be OK if an American citizen bought a truckload of AK47's in America and then transported them to Mexico for sale for a tidy profit? (as far as American law is considered)

Ohhhh...and the fact that we are not spending $10 billion a month social engineering in Iraq anymore is a defense cut?
Republicans have been instructed to talk about the deep defense cuts that have already taken place. What these Repubs don't understand is that the only cut that took place was the cut in the GROWTH of defense (and offense). What is so hard to understand about that? Last year I weighed 200 pounds. I planned on eating a lot and thought I would weigh 300 pounds. I did not eat as expected and actually weigh the same amount now. Nevertheless I tell people I lost 100 pounds last year.
Scott Walker wants 'liberal-leaning' unions to be exposed to the free market by replacing their pension system with a 401k plan. Scott Walker wants 'conservative-leaning' unions to retain their precious pension system. Why don't Republicans ever want their own kind to be exposed to the values that they claim to represent? Looks like they favor a two-tier system.
Ask a Republican this question. "What do you think about government run health?" They will say that they hate it and wouldn't wish it upon their worst enemy, even me! Ask them if the TriCare system for active military personnel and the Veteran's Administration should be just shut down and replaced with a "voucher system" where they can enjoy the fruits of the private health insurance market. They will instantly exclaim, "why do you hate the U.S military?" I've realized that all the Republicans have a slobbering love affair with government run health care, when it suits their needs. I say, just how godless and immoral their duplicity and mendacity is! How many of my fellow conservatives here agree?

The Republican party has infected the American spirit with the belief that war is free. After all, didn't we pay for the Republican party's social engineering project in Iraq and their nation building project in Afghanistan with their precious Bush tax cut? Had we had an increased income tax and/or an additional war time gas tax to pay for all this war starting in 2002; I'd bet we would not be using the US military as much as we are today.

Here's my position on reducing the debt. The USA, essentially, had a balanced the last few years of 'Bubba's' presidency. The Republicans then went on a big spending spree. They cut nothing, but had their precious Bush tax cut. A long term nation building project in Afghanistan. Not paid for, but should have. A long term social engineering project in Iraq. Not paid for, but should had an additional war time gas tax until all troops are home. Another socialist entitlement that when passed should have bumped up the payroll tax to pay for it. The Republican party needs to pay for their BIG goob-mint.

Thanks so much for all your Republican party talking points. Just why should my taxpayer's dollars subsidize sugar consumption, high fructose corn syrup consumption, partially hydrogenated soybean oil consumption and ethanol mandates? Will we all go naked if cotton is not subsidized? This is the Republican party. BIG government when it suits me, small government for you!
