The cats out of the bag. The Republicans big plan for fixing the economy looks a lot like screwing the middle class even more. Here is the only detailed proposal any Republican has made, the Ryan plan:

1. Eliminate Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children's Health Insurance Program and replace them with vouchers to defray the cost of private health insurance.

2. Pay for partially privatizing Social Security by cutting benefits to 1950 levels when half of elderly Americans lived below the poverty line.

3. Cut taxes in half for the wealthiest 1% of Americans, including an average cut of $502,000 per year for families earning more than $1 million and $1.7 million per year for the wealthiest 0.1% of Americans. These tax cuts would be on top of the Bush cuts, if made permanent.

4. Raise taxes on families earning between $25,000 and $200,000 by an average of $900 per year (relative to a continuation of current tax rates).

But private land ownership is actually a process of theft. Abolish private land ownership, then we can talk about gold. That is, after we reflect that gold itself is theft from the stolen land.
This land was stolen from Native American's by means of relocation and murder.

This is an untruth. Note that the person who writes it does not id himself. I am against overbearing governmental regulation. There are already state laws on housing, and these have precedence over local laws, there is reason for that. think about it.

Oh pul-LEEEZE. Most firefighters sit around weeks waiting for something to happen. 911 made ALL firefighters "heroes". Granted they do a job....JUST LIKE ALL of us do...but we do not get crazy pay and OUTRAGEOUS pensions....enough of this blanket hero worship....
You're just plain wrong about firefighters "sitting around for weeks waiting for something to happen". They often risk their lives on a daily basis. The vast majority are NOT overpaid. Some of the top positions MAY or may not make more money than they should, it all depends on who you ask and where they/you live. But the reason they've been called heroes is because they are. Next time you're hurt, whether in a car accident or a home fire, see who comes when you dial 911. Oh but wait, that's a different story, right?

Short sided, idiotic comments like that don't accomplish anything except making an arse out of yourself!

Slumlords are all alike. They feign "oh, really" and could care less.
