Someone along the lines of Bill Clinton would be good as well.<quoted text>
I meant to partially agree with you. Altho, a very moderate, conservative liberal would also do.
We can cut some military spending. We should cut farm subsidies to the extent they arent making food more affordable and are just corporate welfare. Subsidies for oil companies are a joke, IMO. Oil is a global commodity. Subsidies are not going to lower prices for us. Its also not going to increase supply. The free market controls all these things. Even if a barrel of oil is drilled here, if folks are paying more money per barrel abroad, that is where the oil company will sell it. Weve seen with natural gas that they are slowing production, because prices are too low. Like I said all controlled by the market. That keystone pipeline was really a dumb idea too. It wont create hardly any jobs, and all that oil will be shipped to China. The only thing we would get out of it was environmental risk and folks having their land confiscated.<quoted text>
It doesn't really matter who if people/politicians keep screaming about the so-called social issues, like gay marriage and abortion, and start screaming about the money spent on subsidies to oil companies, some farm subsidies and other money-wasting pork barrel stuff. And how about not giving the military around 60M so they can advertise at NASCAR events. It's been reported awhile back that the Repub Congress would vote for even more money then the military asked for. That's just crap.
There are certain things I agree with the democrats about. But when it comes to big oil and farm cuts, dont be so sure the dems arent in these big business pockets just as much as the republicans. There is a reason why the democrats didnt go after big pharma with Obamacare and allow the government to negotiate prescription drug prices. Unless your name is Ferrerman, it is possible to support Obama and democrats and realize they sold us all out in this particular instance. Ask yourself why we continue to pay 3 times what Germans pay for the same prescription drugs? Many of these pharmaceutical companies are foreign companies too.
Im all for that, and I think that is one thing fiscal conservatives and liberals would agree on. Its cheaper. Its healthier. Its better for these women. Its better for our nation. The only folks who are adverse to this are the religious right and I dont particularly care for them. Not all folks who generally support the republican party are of this type. There are a lot of fiscal conservatives, such as myself, too.<quoted text>
There was a study in St. Louis where women who were most likely to get pregnant just from screwing around were given free birth control. The rate of births dropped within this group. Why can't the govt. support any org that could provide that service. Wouldn't it be a lot cheaper then continually paying for welfare and such. Personally, I don't care if people screw their brains out if they would use some sort of birth control and since many if not most men won't then dose out the pills.
