Just my personal feelings....

Religion: I believe in the freedom of religion, and do not want it shoved down anyones throat. But I also Believe that the "Ten Commandments", is a harmeless set of rules, and have no problem with them being in a state building. No, I'm not Christian.

Abortion: I believe that abortion is wrong, but would not outlaw it. Counseling before an abortion, especially for teen mothers, could save much psychological problems in the future.

Gun Control: None needed. DO NOT mess with the Constitution.

Capital Punishment: I do not support the death penalty. But, I would leave the fate of the perp up to the victims family.

Welfare: Yes, everyone needs help every once in a while, especially single mothers. Provide free daycare for them, and get them working. Take some of the money from the fraudulent war on drugs to support the program, but also make it a 3 year limit for welfarre for those who fail or are unwilling to work.

Drugs: Legalize them. Works in many other countries. Sell them only in designated areas. Tax Them. Use the tax revenue for rehabilitation programs.

Immigration: No green card= no work or drivers liscense. Do not support those who illegally enter the country. They do the jobs that Americans don't want to do( busboy, fruitpicking)? Take the welfare recipients and offer, no demand them to do these type of jobs, while offering free daycare, and small cash support until they are on their feet.

War on Terror: what war? what terror? I live in the metro Chicago area, and probably have a better chance of being hit by lightning than being a target of terror. Maybe if we didn't meddle in everyone elses affairs, and paid more attention to our own, we wouldn't need a war on terror.

Deficit Problem: Return to the gold standard.

Minimum Wage: We have a minimum wage, how about a maximum wage? Six figures and it's cut off time. Bill Gates can fund the welfare system himself.


Just my thoughts.

Be Well

Nerd,
What have the Demos done for me in the military besides cutting down our finances to get the equipment we need to do our jobs? Why is it that most Demos take my pay raises away? Why? Why? Why?

My job is secure, the job market being so called down isn't hurting me in a bit. We just got a lot of lazy good for nothing deadbeats in this country that would sooner get a welfare check than get an honest hard working job. This country needs to realign its work ethic. They say "The govt. owes me a living" I say BS! they do! YOU owe YOURSELF a living, you make or break yourself, keep the govt out of it.

Well put, the absolute truth as to why one becomes a supporter of the left over the right.

Down to brass tacks:

Democrats care about people

Republican care about money

If you think that working the system to get a check, counts as an honorable living, you might be a Democrat.

If you feel that the government somehow owes you a paycheck for sitting on your ass all day, you might be a Democrat.

If your idea of a pay raise, means having another kid to get a bigger welfare check, you might be a Democrat.

If you use food stamps to buy $300 worth of groceries, and then load them into a new Cadillac, you might be a Democrat...


Actually, I should point out that I'm not really a Republican either... Extremists are just that, extremists, whether left or right... Extremism is bad...mkay?

Three letters for you, buddy: FDR.

He came in and because of him Hitler got his ass torn off and handed back to him. Don't tell me democrats do nothing for the military.

Signing off,
HLW
