This list has four flaws. Pat Buchanan is not listed as among the 25 most influential conservatives in the Country. Plainly, he is one of the best spokesmen for conservative positions. On the other hand, three people are listed as influential conservatives who are only considered conservatives by rabid liberals, and one of the "honorable mentions should be iisted as an Israeli lobbytst.. The non-conservatives listed are Newt Gingrich, John McCain, and Karl Rove--none of which should be included on this list. None of them are conservative, unless you think Nelson Rockefeller, Cold War liberal who worked to elect Lyndon Johnson in 1964 after Goldwater won the Republican Presidential nomination instead of liberal Scranton. Rocky would be these guys favorite Presidential candidate--except for RINO Jeb Bush. Adelson spends a lot of money in campaign, but only for candidates he feels would be approved by his friend Benjamin Netanyahu--Prime Minister of Israel.
A "jobs creation act" which gives money to employers is laughable. That's what NAFTA and other "free trade" agreements are all about, making companies richer by sending jobs and factories to the third world, import goods cheap, and put firms who stay here out business. Look around you? And you just want to subsidize hem to keep the doors open and hire folks at minimum wage? As for the Read the Bill plan, why make congressmen read bills when they don't care what's in them, or worse yet don't know how to read one in the first place? Won't change any votes. Congress will always vote with the big money unless their constituents hammer them like anvils. Look at Amnesty for the nearest example. Much better than auditing the Fed is a simple law preventing the fed from making loans to foreign banks. We don't know how many trillions they have lent to them, and a report alone won't change anything. The "Spending freeze" has more holes than a screen door in it. And the misnamed "cut your gas bill" is just a sellout to the Oil Industry A "pledge to end bailouts" is just a set of words. And "clawing back" the NSA sounds like a good idea, but still leave an awful lot of leeway for the NSA to spy on us. Immigration was not mentioned, the biggest single threat to our nation's wellbeing. I give this list a "C" for effort and "F" for content. Hope no one is foolish enough to think "This is a good idea".
First, according to the news stories Kyle has not spent his time since leaving the Navy, but getting rich writing popular books about snipering and operating a profitable Sniper business. He made a career of guns and killing. He has indeed contrituted time and money to veterans with PTSD. But he should have realized that the last thing people with the disorder want is to be around guns. In addition, thiis poor guy he and his buddy took to the shooting range appears to be someone who--unlike Kyle--has not turned his military experience into big bucks. We may yet discover from his testimony that this tragedy was even bigger than we now think. What Kyle thought laudable, the other guy may have found horrible.
