Me and most men of my family are current and former military and we are all of the mindset of building our country's economy first (through Tax and budget cuts), and using our military in traditional ways such as protecting our borders and sea lanes.

I know bringing up Ron Paul gets automatic dismissal from some, but it is amazing to me that Paul seemed to be the voice crying in the wilderness about the absurdity of borrowing money from China to go to war and then rebuild Iraq, as well as maintaining 700 military installations around the world well past the end of the cold war. Not trying to convince anyone that he should have been elected, but if the other Republicans had at least listened and figured out why he had large support from the young people and the military maybe they would have come up with a non-interventionalist foreign policy that acknowledged the trend to the now mainstream position that is closer to Paul's than most other Republicans.
I don't currently own a gun. If this list came out where I live I would go out and buy one and demand that the newspaper update the map to show me as a gun owner. Between a criminal wanting to possibly steal a gun or looking at me as a "soft target" I would choose the former. Criminals can get guns on the street. They don't need to break into strange homes to get one. People in this map area who show as non-gun owners should buy in mass and sue to keep the map constantly updated.
How about the government sharing the risk out of "fairness"? In the current system one party takes all the risk and the government only shares in the transaction when there is a profit. If the investment goes down ot's "sorry about your luck".

Actually if 19,000 people hadn't mistakenly voted for Pat Buchanon instead of Gore, then he(Gore)would have been President. Not trying to rehash that whole thing, it's just what happened.

Actually the whole point of this column is that the process is immoral. He was clearly against taking from one person to give to another as government policy.
One issue is the whole notion of "leaders" when it comes to race. While Asian and Hispanic groups have advocacy groups they generally don't have leaders that try to guide the thoughts and actions of the rest of the group. This is one reason they have been able to assimilate to greater degrees.
I've always said that the bravest people in politics are outspoken Black conservatives. Who else gets their very identity maligned because of their political views. All others can be liberal, moderate, consrvative or whatever without poeple questioning their roots or calling them traitors or sellouts. Shame on you Allison
