My only interest is in finding THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER.



You've ignored the truth twice on the pretenses of partisan bickering.

The republicans do it when they want to hate on democrats.
The democrats do it when they want to hate on republicans.

you are perpetuating the American downfall.

Ugh, this thread just reaks of people still caught up in the Red Vs. Blue debacle.

I thought we were starting to gain some ground.

Let me offer a simple statement that should end this topic, but I know it won't :

They are all working together.

I did respond to the topic of the discussion.

Republican bashing aside.

I am ALL for spending, if it is found within the CONSTITUTION.


Here, let me help you understand the seriousness about our borders and the protection afforded us to this VERY COMPONENT within the Constitution.

The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing
shall think proper to admit
, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to
the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed
on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.

No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any duty of Tonnage, keep
Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact
with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually
invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.


The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican
Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on
Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature
cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.


To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions

WOW, from the CONSTITUTION!

You just used logic AND the Constitution. Unfortunately for you, people that go along with party lines dont get either (dems or rep's for that matter). Star for you anyways

I understand your anger due to possible political bias, but the questions remained UNANSWERED.

The thread is calling out to ALL republicans and I am only seeing accusations and anger from you, along with EXCELLENT facts and bits and pieces and links from others who seem to agree with me on the issue.

Please do not let your bias get the best of you and cloud your thinking/actions on this thread, thanks.


Again, I am CALLING ALL REPUBLICANS FOR ANSWERS.

Hello?

quick question, where is the republican concern over the billions of dollars spent daily on unjust wars? my solution to the economic crisis, take the money spent on wars and spend it on peace, diplomacy, improving our foreign policy, alternative energy sources, border security, education and health around in our own country and around the world.

Now, now!! If they were "all working together", we would NOT be seeing so many HUGE differences between the two parties!! This is an EXCUSE used when folks cannot support their argument in regards to a particullar political party.

Certainly, and in ACTUALITY, there are HUGE differences between the two. We are talking TOTALLY different ways in which the county is MANAGED and RAN between the two of them.

The claims of them being the same only rings true to the conspiracy theorist who does NOT take a look at the political parties and their stances and actions throughout history.

Lets please remain ON TOPIC!!

Close but I think you got it wrong.

A Republican Politician's (and Dem Pol's) stance is "profits for me and my friends above all else."

I think we need to call for ALL legislators to start thinking smarter about how, what and why they spend any of OUR money. Period.

You have shown your inability to remain focused on topic, as well as your incompetence to provide any meaningful discussion to the thread. Thats all I will say.

Yes, you're right. But the BIG DIFFERENCE between the parties is who get's the spoils.

Really, at one time, there were philosophical differences betweens the parties. However, at the heart of it, they each use the same methods and tactics to get, control and maintain power for themselves and to funnel money and contracts to family, friends and donors.

Niether party is altuistic in their beliefs or goals. It's just words they say to get elected and stay there for as long as they can.

Hello?



Its funny, selectively seeing the arguments and saying "The thread is calling out to All republicans and I am only seeing accusations and anger from you, along with EXCELLENT facts and bits and pieces and links from others who seem to agree with me on the issue." How is it in your little world over there?

The arguement that you brought up is allready trumped by the response given above that it is within the Constitution to defend our boarders and that it is required of our elected representatives to do so. Just cause you dont want to read about it and instead skim over it is your problem. But please, continue to live in your little world and ignore the people's views that oppose your ideas and just try and belittle them and what they say with meaningless jargon, I promise you that you wont learn anything new. But, Im sure that you allready know that and just decided to continue on the path of mediocrity.

I agree totally.

Unfortunately, with the current campaign finance regime and lack of term limits, we will be discussing this in perpetuity.

Without meaningful reforms of campaign finances, the politicians will continue to be on the dole. As a consequence, without term limits, they continue to be in power.

A solution is public finance of campaigns, but don't hold your breath waiting for this one.

Too much money and power to fight.

I personally agree 1 MILLION PERCENT with the OP on this one.

Where is all the OBNOXIOUS Republicans lovers and supporters right now?

They are ALWAYS SHOUTING AND RAMMING IT DOWN OUR THROATS on how the Democrats need to cease all spending, yet their beloved CROOKS are expected to vote UNANIMOUSLY on MORE SPENDING.

OP you are CORRECT in your assumption of absolute HYPOCRISY with all the Republican Fan-boys on this site. All a BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES.

I wonder why the LOUD-MOUTH Republicans FAN-BOYS of this forum are all so QUIET right now??

You all complain so much here, WHY ARE YOU NOT COMPLAINING NOW??

HYPOCRITES.

Where do they get off milking us for another $600 milloin and jammin it down our throats? And for what? Border secerity? Everybody knows democrats what as many illegles in our country as can be crammed in. They need them to be on a social program to ferther their Nazi socialist aginda. This regime is out of control!

You do not know if a rabbit came up and bit ya.

Wow, the government FINALLY comes out and does something that they are AUTHORIZED to do.

I wonder if the communists added some additional CRAP to the bill, just like the communists DO EVERY TIME!

Why don't you being a good communist give ALL of your labor to the PARTY cause their 12 guage.

Or are you a member of the party apparatchik?
