What I find depressing are the great number of "We, the People" who actually believe that the elites ARE the best and brightest, and we should not question their motives. This is the thinking pattern of lazy, uninformed people. The hard working, informed people knew ObamaCare was a scam, and we knew Susan Rice was lying. We knew Lois Lerner was a scumbag, but we were shouted down by the elites and their media lap dogs.

Same here. If you have no objection, I would like to use this to explain to others how things SHOULD be.

Glorified trade schools? I disagree with your sentiment on that point. Most schools are turning out graduates of such worthwhile programs as Advanced Women's Studies and African American STudies. Just try and get a job with one of those degrees. At a trade school you can learn auto mechanics or welding and REALLY have knowledge that translates to a good job.

Just one more reason to do away woth the DoE. Tell me, anyone, what good it is sending tax dollars to DC, allowing DC to skim up to 60% off (for whatever purpose), and having DC hold the remaining money hostage and forcing LOCAL school districts to act in certain ways. Tell a liberal yopu believe the DoE should be abolished, and the first thing they say is, "You don't want to eduicate children?" Persoanlly, I got a pretty good education in a "government school". And that was before the DoE. BTW, I graduated high school in 1975 and went on to the Cornell School of Hotel Adimistration, one of the toughest to get into (less tha 10% of applicants were accepted). Is this any way to run a railroad (or school system)?

You have heard me push the Fair Tax. And I have heard you, as well. One important fact about thopse who say flat tax. A flat taxis STILL a tax on income. Our current income started out as a flat tax, and onlyon the very rich. Even the recent tax reform bills just "simplified" the tax code (but the tax code got LONGER). No, the only real answer is to ELIMINATE the income tax and go to a consumption tax. As to the claim that politicians willnever go for it, you are partly right. We must use the primaries to get the right people into office (like we did with Ted Cruz in Texas). It can be done, and if we wish to become an econoic powerhouse, it MST be done.

Every committee that congress authorizes must be funded. Every staff eorker must be paid. We spend a whole lot of money talking about taxes. We (as a government) spend a whole lot of money on collecting taxes. And we (as citizzens) spend a whole lot of money just in figuring out how much tax to pay. There are some estimates that put the cost of income tax compliance at $400 BILLION per year. There is a better way to fund the federal government. Its called the Fair Tax. I will be here most of today to answer any concerns you nmay have about the BEST plan to fund the federal government and get the government OFF the backs of the people.
And just who do you think you are? The Dennis Miller of Townhall? Seriously, I enjoyed the use of many $64 words. Its keeps the liberals guessing or constantly going to the dictionary to figure out what you said.
To return to the pre 17th amendment process we need to pass ANOTHER amendment repealing the 17th. ANd I agree, its way past time to return the states their rights.
Oh, how I wish for a federal governmetn that really was constrained by the Constitution. I wish they would stop being so "compasionate" with OPM, and leave us the hell alone.

Obama doesn't CARE what the people want. He only cares about what he's TOLD to care about by his puppet masters (Jarrett and Soros).
