A mass shooting occurred at Ft. Hood in Texas. We will have more “gun control” speeches by politicians who pretend the 2nd Amendment doesn’t exist. Eliminating assault weapons and limiting the size of ammunition clips won’t stop these murders.
The real solutions are keeping guns away from mental patients, criminals, and terrorists. Since these are impossible, the only solution is self…Continue
Assume there were reasonable restrictions on how much money the government could spend (like a balanced budget requirement and a debt ceiling that couldn’t be changed every day). The 536 people we’ve sent to Washington wouldn’t have the money to wage a war. They would have to make a decision on whether to spend money on additional unemployment benefits or the $100 million it spends every four years to subsidize parties at the political conventions.

How could this group of men and women possibly reduce budget cuts already in place? How could they approve a budget that has another $6 Trillion in deficit spending? Don’t they know that $23 Trillion in debt will overwhelm our economic underpinning? Don’t they care that the middle class will be devastated…Continue

Who’s to blame for the Government Shutdown?
Our system of government only works when our elected representatives are willing to compromise. Both sides negotiate and make concessions to find the middle ground. In this case, the sides started pretty far apart. Republicans believe that Obamacare is the worst law ever passed by our government. Their starting point was the full repeal.
