We have seen a lot of non action take place in our government in the last thirty years, a lot of talk about helping the people but not enough action of keeping us free from government bureaucracy, free from higher taxes and free from the right to control and make our own decisions. Listen I am against socialism because I am against other people, especially government telling me what to do on issues that involve my personal life. I don’t think that the government should be able to tell me where I can buy my health insurance. Its not a “public option” that I need, what I need is the government to not make it illegal for me to buy health insurance in Maine if I want. I don’t need better medicines, what I need is for the government to stop regulating prescriptions with all kind of outrageous taxes that jump the prices and cause people to pay more for the service of handling the prescriptions and getting them to the consumers rather than the consumers and I should be allowed if I want to be able to perchance cheaper prescriptions from Canada and Mexico, but again I would not have to do that if the federal government would stop enforcing its rules and regulations on my personal life.
I understand why certain people believe in socialism, they want government to take care of them, but here is my suggestion move to Cuba or North Korea. Those countries allow their governments to run their lives. They regulate what they eat through government ran grocery stores. They pick their doctors for them, through government ran hospitals and health insurers, they take the rule of law out of the hands of the parents and they make parents send their kids to government controlled and government ran schools that have a specific doctrine. Look at places like Iran, their government makes the teachers teach a certain curriculum and the students have to learn it and are forced to go to those schools, there are no other schools for them to go to. No private schools. In public government ran schools and in those countries parents aren’t allowed to home school their kids.
People say well it will never get this way in America…… Ok well what do you think has been happening over the last 30 years. Less parent involvement in schools and more public schools and there is a public school curriculum that school districts have to teach and the federal government has standards and testing standing and measurements to determine the success of a child and the learning development of a child. This is based on an entire school or school district, and it is not based on the observation and communication of each individual child and the child’s parent like it should be.
Think about grocery stores- we have the FDA, a group a federal government appointed people decided where our food comes from, rules about our food, tells private farmers what they can grow, who they can sell their food to. The farmers are being out beat, our produced and out marketed by foreign government food suppliers, and their taxes are getting higher and products are NOT being bought because the federal government gets to make the rules and regulations rather than the American people who buy and spend their money in these grocery stores. Farmers are producing less and paying more. Grocery stores are supplying more foreign food, less American foods, paying more taxes and producing a lower quality of product and then the consumer must pay for the loss of the grocery store. Were no longer simply paying for what were buying were paying: foreign, local, city, state and federal taxes and money to the truck companies who bring the food. This is how I would put it: in reality 10 Bananas probably cost $3, but because of all the middle men and taxes to be paid its probably going to cost you $5 or $6 for 10 bananas. Outrageous.
President Obama is loosing his grip on the America that we know of and love. Everyone’s mad at him for all the right reasons. Conservatives, real conservatives like myself and Ron Paul, know that America has no business trying to police the world. Build a strong national security and bring all of our troops from all over the world home.
The number of countries that the United States has a presence in is staggering. According the U.S. Department of State’s list of "Independent States in the World," there are 192 countries in the world, all of which, except Bhutan, Cuba, Iran, and North Korea, have diplomatic relations with the United States. All of these countries except one (Vatican City) are members of the United Nations. According to the Department of Defense publication, "Active Duty Military Personnel Strengths by Regional Area and by Country," the United States has troops in 135 countries. Here is the list:
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Serbia and Montenegro
Trinidad and Tobago
United Arab Emirates
This means that the United States has troops in 70 percent of the world’s countries. The average American could probably not locate half of these 135 countries on a map.
People need Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!!!! Until this president lowers taxes and allows the private sector to start hiring again, no one is going to support him.
Listen we need to get this country back on track and that is by having less government and more people telling this president- thanks but no thanks!!!
Keep your Public Option, Bring Our Men and Women Home From All Over The World and Lower Taxes So The Private Sector Can Breath Again!!!!
Just My Opinion- I Could Be Wrong But I Doubt It!!!!
