    the elderly our old, the youth are our future; make sure they're not forgotten.

    Daddy, I don't capish your response. Do you say they have Berthold Brecht's 'wisdom' at the borders on signs now? Berthold Brecht's wisdom above; what means death and inadequate life? Are the people of the USA responsible for the welfare of foreigners? Why don't they stay where they are and help to make their own livable nation? Inadequate life is relative. To Bill Gates I am the poorest wretch on earth, to a beggar in Sudan I am a wealthy man. But B. Brecht has never been the last word on wisdom.

    it was a sarcastic remark. i'm not saying they should post that sign. i'm saying those illegals must be imaginning that sign becuase they just keep comming as if they're welcomed as illegals.

    in addition, i haven't spent much time researching B. Brecht, but i couldn't use his qoute and not give him credit. Maybe he intended it for a different meanning but to me that sentence means "don't missout on enjoying life to the fullest because your afraid the risk might lead to death"

    I would take care of Iran not just by giving them a slap on a wrist

    1.) I'd enact complete transparency on all funding appropriations via the internet. Every dollar spent as well as every yea or nea
    2.) I'd pull the plug on pork spending. If you want it, you have to sponsor a separate bill for it.
    3.) Every bill must be posted online for public viewing 30 days prior to the vote. Every Senator / Rep must sign that they have read and understand the bill in it's entirety before the vote.
    4.) I would take every opportunity possible to speak about the Fair Tax and hand back the power to the American people.
    5.) I would push for term limits on Congress.
    6.) I'd legalize marijuana and watch the tax revenues off that alone reboot the ridiculous promises of medicare / medicaid.

    Might as well make myself the President for my first post.

    Elected Officials: One term per person. No paycheck.
    Constitution: Make sure it is followed.

    Hmmm:Gotta think the rest of this through....

    If someone did not admit to the crime(s) byt was found guilty and then also lost their appeal, they would also face a certain and quick death.

    Things like what happened in Chicago the other day would be all but stopped, because people would probably stop and think.

    This would also take a huge chunk out of the deficit we have. I would also use firing squads instead of leathal injections, electric or gas. $0.25 per round is a lot cheaper.

    All executions would be publicized!
    amen to that

    Well I agree with you on bringing the manufacturing jobs back since I am a truck driver but lets also make the welfare deadbeats GET A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Also bring our boys and girls home.

    I'd put my money where my mouth is when I say "I support the troops".......I'd bring every last soldier home from Afghanistan and Iraq. I'd put an end to abortion. I'd legalize pot. I'd end state welfare. I would end every aspect of the nanny state that I could and restore true liberty to this nation. I can't believe how most Americans can't see that this nation in it's current state is not free. We need to open out eyes and look behind the curtain to see what's really going on.
