Very obviously, I didn't vote for the Marxist communists. I am a capitalist. And, I believe having a very, very credible ability to project force is directly proportional to the health of our economy. And, I believe the Constitution prevents the president from issuing edicts directly to the people.
I voted for the capitalist who believes in maintaining a strong military capability.
Other issues were secondary.
So, just who did I vote for?
Well, obviously you voted for Gary Johnson.

Good for you!

Revenue is not the problem. Spending is the problem.
Cut spending. After you cut spending, we'll start discussing revenue. First topic, half the population is paying all the income tax for the entire population. What is your proposal to increase the number of people paying taxes?
Neither of your parties will cut spending leaving revenue as the only answer.

The Eagle Ford Shale Boom...

"The shale was first tapped in 2008 and now has around 20 active fields good producing over 900 million cubic feet per day of natural gas. For perspective, the United States produced over 2 trillion cubic feet of gas in September 2012."

If you make only 10 thousand dollars a year, you owe a certain percentage of that in taxes. Period. End of statement.
No exceptions. No excuses.
Everybody pays their fair share of what the government costs.
I agree, but that's NOT what your elected Republicans are doing, In simple terms they are quite happy for the 2-3%'rs to pay 12%-14% of their income on average of tax collectwhile those in the middle are paying 30% or more. That's DOUBLE, yet that is what Obama wants to restore, get that balance back to where it should be.

You can rant on about the freeloaders day in day out, it doesn't change a f...g thing. If you want services then you need to get more ppl earning a better income that is spread out over a greater percentage of the population, not a small percentage that keeps shrinking every 5 yrs. That is Capitalism at is worst and destined for a complete failure, because that is WHY you have high tax rates on high incomes. To keep a balance between having an economy that thrives or self implodes. Every country practicing this policy is in the top 10 of growth rates RIGHT NOW, including those pesky Canadians to the north.

Liberals in Washington...

"In a town that has more people per square mile talking about income inequality than probably any other -- you also find really striking examples of, well, income inequality."

Yippee!

"Reuters notes: "Today there are 320,000 federal jobs in the Washington area. Within the District of Columbia, 55% pay $100,000 or more."

Liberals...

"If you believe in evolution, but hold that all cultures are equal - you might be a liberal

If you're an "advocate" for the poor who uses "trailer trash" as an insult - you might be a Liberal

If you reject absolute moral concepts like "right" and "wrong", but believe George W. Bush is "evil" - you might be a liberal.

If you believe it should be illegal to smoke in your vehicle, but support legalized marijuana - you might be a liberal."

Cut and paste, cut and paste, cut and paste, all to make insignificant negative points. On November 6 America told the Republican party to shut up and quit whining. So SFU and get out of the way while Democrats continue to clean up your mess.

Obama Administration: "We Can and Will Force Christians to Act Against Their Faith"
In a legal argument formally presented in federal court in the case of Hobby Lobby v. Kathleen Sebelius, the Obama administration is claiming that the First Amendment—which expressly denies the government the authority to prohibit the “free exercise” of religion—nonetheless allows it to force Christians to directly violate their religious beliefs even on a matter that involves the life and death of innocent human beings.
http://cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-adminis...
http://www.prisonplanet.com/obama-administrat...
https://www.google.com/search...
Freedom to practice one's religion doesn't include the right to force your beliefs on anyone else. Hobby Lobby is attempting to do that by denying coverage for contraceptive for their employees that don't adhere to their employers extreme views. No one is being forced to use contraceptives it's strictly voluntary but under the law must be made available through employer provided insurance.
Contraception that prevents a fertilized egg from implanting can only be considered abortion if you subscribe to the extreme view that a fertilized egg automatically becomes a full fledged human being.
This concept was put to voters in conservative Mississippi in the form of Amendment 26 and was defeated 59 to 41%.
You're an idiot!

Come on, get in the present. You are just a liberal loon who can offer nothing but bashing a former president. You do realize that the action taken in Iraq was supported by democrats in the congress? You do realize that do you not. I am waiting for your stock response, Bush lied, you have nothing else. During Sadamns reign many thousand innocent Kurds died, to you not a big deal. How many American's died in Vietnam? An absolute waste. How many died in Libya, an action taken with no okay from congress. Quit being such a phoney.

Congress put conditions on their authorization which included;
Before employing military force in Iraq, the resolution requires that the president first determine that continued diplomatic efforts "or other peaceful means alone," will not "adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq or is not likely to lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq."
usgovinfo.about.com/library/weekly/aa101102a....
Did Bush adhere to that? No, UN inspectors were forced to leave before they could finish their job, not by Sadaam but Bush.
The Kurdish massacre occurred in March of 1988 during the Regan administration. What did Reagan do about it? Nothing except trying to blame it on Iran. Sadaam was our guy in the region. After the first gulf war "no fly" zones were established in the north and south and Sadaam no longer had any influence in the Kurdish region.
You right wingers keep bringing up Viet Nam but forget that it was Democratic liberals who rebelled against Johnson and forced him from office.
It was the Nixon campaign that scuttled the peace talks convincing the South Vietnamese that they could give them a better deal than the Johnson administration. In the end Nixon dragged the war on for four more years and South Vietnam ceased to exist.

No American lives were lost in Libya moron, civilians casualties came largely from government forces and would have been worse without intervention. Our role was logistical and supportive and well within our treaty obligations with NATO.
Peace idiot.

Bush had budgets.
We went from a balanced one to doubling the debt & creating the worse recession in 80 years.
Wow, those budgets really helped.
As long as you keep repeating that...

We never had a surplus under Clinton. Clinton got lucky with the dot.com bubble. It then burst. The Republican Congress led the way to a more balanced budget. The unraveling of the housing mortgage loan crisis began under Clinton. We were hit by 9/11 under Bush disrupting the economy. Democrats also supported the war effort. Democrats ignored the warnings by Bush and Bernacke of an impending housing market crisis as much, if not more, than Republicans.

...I'm going to keep repeating this.

Your oversimplified version is much too understated and consistently inaccurate.
