It is the values promoted by the Judeo/Christian religions and the freedoms and liberties to exercise them and a "can do spirit."
If Kansa is so desperate (and I don't think that they are) for an idiotic lberal to shame their state, I would happily donate Shiela Jackson Lee.
Where in the Constitution does it authorize the Fedral Government to deal with SS, Medicare or any of the other "entitlements"?

I think that that was tried at some point. Not sure 'cause everything that I've heard on that subject is hearsay. Be interesting if some of you can shed some light on the subject.
"I am not at all sure the 2012 vote was not manipulated." I've wondered about that myself.

Repeal and replace Obamacare

ObamaCare should most definately be repealed. I always undersdtood though apparently millions didn't, that they were talking about insurance and not actual healthcare. All of the insurance money can buy is useless with out some able to provide medical services. I also reject the premise of replacing ObamaCare. No one has beenable to show me in the US Constitution where the Federal government is authorized to take these kinds of actions. Allow our market system to work and medical services will respond accordingly.
Does it occur to you that these exploited cheap laborers are working at jobs that are better than they had ever dreamed of being able to get? Just a side note.
The flaw in your math is that the 'Labor Participation Rate' is that you used the population number instead of employable (that is ;don't count kids, retired seniors, disabled,etc.). Other than that I agree with your assessment.

A Government Admission of Wrongdoing

And that is why so many of the "Republican base" stayed home. I continually say that if the GOP really wants to win, they need to become conservatives and no Democrat lite (or not so lite).

The Talk Radio Party?

I agree. If the GOP was to field candidates that were actually interested in shrinking government and promoting individual liberty (and responsibility) there wouldn't be a Tea Party. And if the GOP would support the Tea Party candidates and not attack the conservative base they might actually win.
Actually, the GOP seems to refuse to field a candidate that is just good enough. When was the last time anyone had a candidate to vote for that they really thought would shrink government?
