Why don't we just have a COMMON SENSE Party?


"Power attracts the corruptible. Suspect all who seek it."
-Frank Herbert Chapterhouse: Dune

"It's said that "power corrupts," but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power."
-David Brin


The SECOND you create a "Common Sense" Party, and it gains any political power at all, it will be systematically infested with leeches, locusts, cockroaches, and other nefarious parasites.

Thus is true of any nexus of human power.

That sure doesnt stop you from ever using words like "liberal", "socialist/ism","communist/ism", etc, etc etc


If the shoe fits, I'll apply it.


So labels will be the death of America
but
Ya know, if they fit, use them.

You will one day, find yourself looking in the mirror asking "why" why on earth was i so "gay"




There are days that I am damned beautiful.

But not gay.


Was that really your argument for not being gay?

No, but as per the design of what the Fed Govt was supposed to do, and what taxes were designed for, the application of tax funds going to Military, Roads, and Schools is what it was designed to do.
Not give food stamps to people, Health Care Crap and every other want under the sun.

BIG difference.



Was this what you had to offer in place of a cogent argument? Rah rah about it all you like. Until you actually try to dispute my post, none of this rhetoric does anything to me.

THEN WHAT?

I've never seen such cynical people in my life. ATS attracts plenty of maggots, crazies and debbie downers. Maybe we should start an ATS party?

I'm wrong because I don't support soldiers?

Is that what you're trying to say?

Please, go back and read it again.
The use of taxes dollars is spelled out very well in the Documents that created the US.
Use for drug rehab, welfare and housing is not what it was designed to do.

If you want it changed, maybe start your own country.

Nope.
I don't need your agreement in anything.
Nor do I need your approval.

No, you seem to misunderstand.

I'm not cynical, I am merely spreading the information and enlightenment of the issues in the hopes that you will forevermore be AWARE of such atrocities perpetuated by psychopaths.

It has a *MUCH* lower likelihood of happening if we are aware of it.

I'm not telling you that making a new party is stupid, or even pointless....

I'm telling you to beware of those who are attracted to power.

Be on guard against the psychopaths, for they are subtle, and nefarious.

Who would want to stop thinking big?

I just hope not everybody stops thinking big, or wanting more because they don't see the point to continue. We need people to think big, to keep us moving forward.

Thinking big or wanting more doesn't make a person evil or greedy.

It amazes me that people STILL think that some how their political party is better then the other. We have had the same two political parties in charge as the minority and as the majority throughout our history, and yet we are still dealing with the same issues and nothing has gotten better but rather worse.

Both Democrats AND Republicans are for bigger goverment because the lobbyist clients controls both of them. This makes sense because if the lobbyist clients control congress (who creates the laws) then they control the market and the more control the get the better. Hence, Republicans and Democrats have both increased the power and size of the goverment. I assure you that your party ideals are not above the temptation of money and power. In addition, it would be rather stupid for lobbyist clients to invest Billions on 50/50 odds when the law is written to allow them to have 100% control of the outcome by influencing (lobbying) both sides.

It doesn't matter which party is in control until you remove the corruption in Washington , because they are both working for the highest bidder in Washington. You have to be naive to think that a multimillion dollar lobbyist corporation cares more about party ideals or whats better for the tax payers then their bottom line.

The party is not what matters its the individual that matters and besides Ron Paul and a few others neither party has any integrity when it comes to their voice,ideals, and voting history. Their ideals and voting records are not in sync and that is of a concern.

By the way political cheerleaders as yourself are the reason they continue to $crew us, by keeping the masses busy with pointless arguments or distractions from the real issues. The real issue is NOT healthcare,economy,taxes,war,etc those are just symptoms.

The real issue are:
1. why has our health coverage declined while healthcare corporation profits have inclined.
2. why have American jobs disappeared and continue to be exported while multinational Corporate profits have inclined.
3. Why is our tax dollars used to bailout multinational corporations who in return hide their profits overseas or export their jobs overseas.
4. Why are we buying weapons for foreign countries ,supporting foreign countries , borrowing money with our tax dollars and paying interest to support foreign governments. We are bankrupt and borrowing money to do that ,but the multinational corporations are having record profits using our tax dollars to buy their services and products.

Basically, the system is working PERFECTLY AS DESIGNED for the multinational corporate lobbyist and their colleagues in congress (both Democrats and Republicans who are exempt from insider trading).

So until you get rid of the financial grey area in Washington, nothing will get fixed and history has shown that it doesn't matter which party is in control.

Some times I think politics is the new religion. Its has become blasphemy to even question your own party or to point out questionable actions by one of your party officials.

Sad they are winning and you are playing into their game.

Thats funny, I dont remember the "the Documents that created the US" calling for a standing army paid for with tax dollars. I dont remember the Constitution saying anything about "pre-emptive strikes", free health care for life, free money for school, or any of that. In fact, for a period of "no longer than 2 years" was the original wording.

Furthermore you serve for a 4 year term and get taken care of for life by us, the taxpayer. Please explain to me how that isnt "socialism' or "communism". You work for 4 years, and reap benefits for life. Im sorry, just because you "work for it" doesnt make a damn difference about anything. You are a hypocrite, on several counts.

That is the role of the Military.

What are you babbling about?
There is no Free Health care in the Military. You work for a smaller paycheck then jobs outside the Military, thus getting Health Care as part of it.
Education? Not free again, as all Military members pay into the GI Bill. With again, working for a reduced paycheck.
If you don't pay into the GI Bill, you don't get anything.

Again, more babbling with no truth.
The member that RETIRES from the Military gets a retirement plan, and healthcare, as does EVERY FEDERAL EMPLOYEE thank you very much.

Because Military Member WORK, not sit on their butts for a paycheck. And the last time I checked, enlisting was an OPTION, and not forced.




Originally posted by aching_knuckles

As with any other job. The benefits vary from one to the other.

Of course it doesn't, because you should not have to work, and get all you want from the EVIL rich.

Please provide some sort of proof, otherwise it is basically BS, like your original statement.

If I want it changed? I thought your complaint was that the status quo is wrong? I thought you were the one that wanted it to change. All that above, that is actually happening. I am fine with that. You are the one with a problem with it so go start your own country. I am fine with those things the way they are in the US.

Where do you get your information? Because it is wrong on so many levels that I wouldn't know where to begin.

Why not use actual scources for information on the military, instead of asking your cat, Sparkles, for the data you put forth here.

Military are the worst of all socialists actors in America, they receive free food, transport, clothing,
shoes, even fricking socks. Even politicians don't get socks, that I pay for, with the money the government
stole from me to give to them so they can have four pairs of socks.

I don't take your money, while Macman does, me thinks you receive MY money on a
monthly basis too. Funny that two of you have government jobs, that compensate through
purely socialists methods; are the two guys here screaming about the evil of socialism and
redistribution of tax dollars. You work FOR THE GOVERNMENT, YOU GET PAID WITH TAX
MONEY, YOU GET UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE and YOU RECEIVE SUBSIDIES and
BENEFITS I DO NOT GET... Why don't you guys quit your freaking jobs?

I cannot understand how the two of you have the balls to take the positions you do...

I think we're better qualified to talk about the government thn those who have never worked for the government. We know what we're talking about. While others only get their information second-hand from the liberal web stes.
And please, do your homework on Tri-Care before you start spouting off.

It sounds like you're using Sparkles the cat as your source of information as well.
