Drop that sh*t and they are all Democrats at the core.
The Republican base is fiscal conservatives, not the religious nutjobs. Time to gear campaigns to that reality and the turnout will improve.
lol! And yet, cons embrace them!

Yet you support raising taxes to maintain the size of government instead of emphasizing cutting government programs.
Many conservatives would support tax increases coupled with significant budget cuts to move toward a balanced budget.
However, in the current environment, the "fiscal cliff" is preferable to Obama's ridiculous plan.
lol! Really? Watch how many people will prefer it when it happens!
Yeah

The 'Right to Bear Arms' Is Not More Important Than a Child's Right to Grow Up
....after seeing similar scenarios play out over and over again, in schools, movie theaters and malls, I'm ready to throw the 2nd Amendment out the f*cking window. Someone's "right to bear arms" is not more important than a child's right to grow old enough to get to middle school, have her first kiss, see Santa or light the final candles on the Menorah. Having access to a gun cannot take precedence over the safety of our schools. It simply can't.
The answer isn't to wrap our schools in barbed wire and turn them into prisons with pretty murals on the wall and jungle gyms. The answer is to stop ignoring the fact that the availability of guns in this country is literally killing us.
We spend a lot of time teaching our children to be safe. We hold their hands when they cross the street, tell them not to talk to strangers, and strap them in their carseats. It's a pillar of parenting -- stay safe. But sometimes you send your child to school and they don't come back. I don't even know how to process that.

Very few, because they believe in Christmas in July and free lunch every day.

The "fiscal cliff" is pretty much the same as the recommendations of Obama's deficit reduction commission.

When Right-To-Work Is Wrong and Un-Libertarian
"Employers own the wages they will pay and the sites where work will be performed under such contracts. So it’s their right to dispense the wages and make the sites available specifically to union members, just as it’s their right, more generally, to trade with anyone they choose.
When a legislature interferes with voluntary employment contracts, it infringes people’s freedom to bargain with their own labor and possessions. Treating this kind of interference as acceptable means licensing arbitrary interventions into the market by politicians, who are ill-equipped to second-guess the decisions made by the real people making work agreements with one another."
http://reason.com/blog/2012/12/12/when-right-...
"This is not to say that unions are always good. It means that, when the state isn't involved, they're private organizations that can offer value to their members. In fact, I found the NWU (and UAW) helpful for a while, primarily through the benefits the union offered and through the NWU's advocacy on the issue of electronic rights for written material at a time when the Web was first creating a host of new opportunities for writers and publishers alike. Eventually, the value of the benefits petered out for me, and then-union chief Jonathan Tasini's habit of veering into Albert Shanker-ish territory finally put me off enough to quit. But I can imagine re-joining a union under the right circumstances. I can also imagine resenting being forced into a union if I found out that it was a condition of employment in a desired job — but I also chafe against drug tests, sensitivity training, and some of the other conditions I've encountered over the years."

I kinda had to feel for the kid in opotus the other day...growing up in a world of machevellian extremist government regime, could not have been all to pleasant for a kid at times.
As we may have witnessed briefly the other day.
"Suffer not the little children".....
When I saw the silently scrolling names of those children on my TV screen yesterday evening, I was reminded of something written 2000 years ago by one of the Ancients. Can't remember the name nor the exact quote as written but, if I may humbly try paraphrasing, it went something like this:

Life is full of tragedy but the most tragic of all is not sickness nor death and loss in battles. Although these are truly tragic, the supreme human pathos, the ultimate tragedy is that which could have been but never was.

Those kids could have been _______. Fill in the blank. They are paths not taken.

There is always a fly in the ointment, though. Someone telling jokes at a funeral. A drunk hitting on the bride. A war protester at a veteran's funeral. A President as Publicity Hound off the leash.

After seeing maybe 20 news reports on the Newtown tragedy, I found myself increasingly irritated with the Boy Messiah's face on my screen. I said aloud "This is about the children and their parents. The community's loss. It's not about you, you jerk!"

The Liberal media keeps plastering the airwaves of the Boy Messiah and I'm no longer watching the media. I can mourn in private without the Jerk-In-Chief interfering. STFU, Boy MEssiah!
