    I understand that most of the people,if not all, that are on TS are people that have a shooting and gun-related background. I also realize that Republicans are typically gun friendly. There is no way that this country could or would vote only republican candidates into office.
    At the last Presidential election this country voted in a black man. Obviously, the majority of congress is white and has bucked everything that he has tried to do. Do you honestly believe that if one or both of the women you propose as president actually wins that the predominately male congress would be any different towards them?
    The way this system is set up there is no way, the only way to get it to work is to do away with political party or do away with lobbyist or do away with adding sneaky little things to a bill to get it to pass.
    Vote every incumbent out, Republican or Democrat. They are all liars and cheats and should have 1 term until this country is looking out for itself.

    Hey, lighten up. Just trying to have a little fun here.

    We can't really persuade people who to vote for.

    When the time comes, i will vote for the Republican candidate, my neighbor will vote for Obama, and one of us will wake up with a headache Wednesday morning and the process will start all over again.


    It's a crap shoot because of the Independent voter and they will make up their mind when they fill out their ballot.

    I have a problem, I realize it is personal, but let me explain.
    I am Catholic therefore I am Pro-life (Republican), I am a trapshooter and hunter and gun owner (again Republican). I am also a Union Carpenter (Democrat)
    I am not a gung-ho union man but devout enough that I do my best to only buy American and support American businesses that do their best to sell American made goods (Democrat). When I need professional help I do seek out union contractors (electricians or plumbers) I shop at union grocery stores and I drive Chevys.
    My question is why is there so much difference between the parties? There are things the Republican party stands for that I am adamant about while at the same time there are things the Democrats stand for that I also believe in.
    Without the pro-labor stance of the Democrats in trying to protect my work, I can't afford to contribute to my Church or shoot as much as i would like.
    Why does there have to be such a difinitive "line" drawn in the sand between the two parties when in reality, we are all Americans and should be doing everthing we can to support ourselves and not being so divided on so many issues.
    Thanks for reading, Wingmaster78

    My guess would be attention given by media and courts to minorities, special interest groups.

    People turning away from religion due to media influences, court rulings, fashion, science.

    Wow, we could argue those points for years.


    My guess is as we are exposed to more, divisions increase as separations between right and wrong become blurred.


    Fifty-sixty years ago, fewer books, movies, tv choices and NO Internet, to expand views, thoughts, philosophies, lies........


    The world is more crowded and less private.

    There are good points to both parties and both parties never live up to what they say they represent. The problem is that while i support some of the Demos goals, I do not support the tax and spend stand or the "Spread the Wealth". I will give up what i do support of the Demos just to get rid of the "spread the wealth" theory and the "tax and spend" idea.

    A dollar spent by the government does no more good for the economy than a dollar spent by the citizen. Too often the dollar spent by the government does no good for the US because the dollar is given to a foreign country.

    Both parties are killing us economically but the Repubs are doing is slower.

    We need more "tea party" influence.

    Mr. Browning:

    I too am LOVING Ron Paul.

    ...just like I did when he ran in the 1980s.

    ...just like I did when he ran in the 1990s.

    ...just like I did when he ran in the 2000s.

    The only difference is... now he's a hundred years old.

    It's a little known secret that all toilets are connected to Ron Paul's central campaign office. So next time just flush your contribution down the toilet and save the cost of the postage stamp.

    This is a great thread- all it needs is Mrs. Keet's wisdom to be perfect.

    Something slowdp said really gave me pause, that a dollar spent by the government and a dollar spent by a citizen are the same. I will have to disagree with that because ever dollar spent by the government was taken from the citizens and was not acquired by producing anything. A dollar spent by a citizen came from his or her production of something of value to somebody, not by taking it from another citizen by force.

    John Galt, you did not quote me exactly and that is how rumors are started. You wrote "Something slowdp said really gave me pause, that a dollar spent by the government and a dollar spent by a citizen are the same."

    That, sir, is not what I wrote. What I wrote was "A dollar spent by the government does no more good for the economy than a dollar spent by the citizen."

    Please do not miss quote me. I did not use the term "same" in my post and I don't think the wording can be construed to mean "same". In fact, "no more" can be construed to mean "less than" but it cannot be considered to mean "same".

    It seems to me that Washington (Democraps) think they can spend my dollars in a manner that will boost the economy faster than when I spend my own dollars. Depending on where it is spent - a dollar spent is a dollar spent. I feel I have more effect on the economy when I spend my own money because I don't pass it off to someone in a union or a bank or another supporter of Obama who squirrels it away and the dollar drops out of the economy.

    Excuse me dp but I can't really see the difference in meaning. Not only did I not quote you exactly, I didn't quote you at all. Notice the complete lack of quotation marks in my post. I would gladly appoligize to you for misquoting you if I had quoted you at all. Frankly, you so completely confused me with all your talk about "same", "no more", and "less than" that my head is spinning and I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Perhaps I misunderstood your meaning. If so, I humbly appologize.

    I'm not sure a dollar spent by a citizen is the same as a dollar spent by government.


    Government spending is subject to a lot of admin.


    I don't remember what the number is but it is something like for every dollar taken in by the government, 15-to 35 cents is spent on admin to distribute what they spend, so lets say only 85 cents of every $1.00 goes to a program. That means to government has to collect $1.18 to clear $1.00 towards a program.

    If the number was 65 cents out of every dollar, it would have to collect just under $1.55 to dispense $1.00 to a program.

    Lets call a spade a spade and get the democrat party to change their name to 'the socialist democratic party'. Their goal is to take care of as many voters as possible so as to increase their vote margin.

    MARCO RUBIO is bought and paid for same as obama, he has no experience except for taking money from repub backers in florida, his ownly use is to get hispanic votes, we need a conservative libertarian independent president,vice president with no strings and strings are what the GOP is offering.
    If romney is chosen, I guarantee that 11 votes I control will never go to him, my brother and his family 19 votes these words and more were all spoken with many more here here on July 4th this year. Lee
