There are actually some key items to fix the health care system-but the insurance lobby is very powerful and got the laws placed to begin with...
1: remove the requirement that medical services be forced to charge the same thing to those without insurance as they do the insurance companies.

In response to your title:
People who think there is still a difference between the establishment Left and establishment Right are the ones holding, not only this country, but our world back.

I didn't say to make gun ownership illegal, I simply proposed to make gun ownership a privilege and not a right.
It wouldn't mean that you would not be able to own one, but you would have to go through more background checks, file more paperwork etc.
Reducing the number of people who own guns, reduces the number of guns that go "lost" and end up in the wrong hands.

A man can work his whole life as a laborer and never have an opportunity to make more than minimum wage. I'm sick of you people that want to protect the wealthy by projecting the poor as being lazy and stupid. If the poor quit roofing, plumbing, building, and farming you wouldn't know what to do. These jobs are so underpaid and most labor jobs don't offer benefits. You don't know what you are talking about.
Of course -- this is a topic for another discussion, but what is so blatantly so? What of the Democratic side has produced the desired effects of "personal freedom, the right of adults to do whatever they want so long as no harm comes"? Point being, we both could produce legislation from both sides that counter such desire. One side legislates morality, the other conduct. Both seek to produce the desired effect of control.

As for the body scanner.
I am having a hard time finding information backing this claim. Can you help me?
You state that "most of the military...boards...are republican controlled". What boards? Corporate board room? Congressional Committees? Senate Committees?
Both parties present pet-projects and both parties fight tooth and nail. Democrats and Republicans alike. There are those who fight diligently within each faction; who stand for the ideals of the party and they are to be commended.
