I consider myself a conservative. That being said, I am not a zealot. I don't believe in abortion, I think that the less government involvement, the better. I think I should keep most of my hard earned cash and not distribute it to crack babies and their mommas. I absolutely believe if you give a man a fish he will eat for a day.....teach a man to fish he will eat for a lifetime. I never made a decent living working for a poor man or one who's struggling just to make ends meet. Hard times fall upon all of us. I will not be a victim of entitlements. Our system should be used as an incentive to do better for yourself, not abuse it. I personally don't care how much corporations make. Until someone grows the kahunas and starts their own business, nurture it and experiences the ups and downs associated with it, don't complain when someone else is prospering. Go do it yourself. People all over the world would die for the opportunities we take for granted. Yes, a gun can kill a person. So will alcohol, drugs, cars and a host of other things. I believe in the right to bear arms, just not AK-47's. My heroes as a kid were pioneers, astronauts, military men and women. Not Lil Wayne or the Kardashians. There you go, you asked....I said it.....and I'm damn proud of it.

You know based on what you just said Obama is probably more conservative than you.

1. wants a fair level earning field for all (education for better earning in life).
2. Corporations should EARN fair revenue and pay taxes like all (this legal form of business acts as an individual separate from the shareholders for liability reasons)
3. believes in keeping the environment safe
4. believes in God (and as the bible says love and help thy neighbor above material possessions)
5. believes in everyone paying their fair share and preserving an affordable healthcare system from birth to death (saving so many from bankruptcy when that cancer, heart condition or diabetes diagnosis is made) Keeping Medicare in place as is with some reform. You

With assault weapons in the news so much, why would anyone be "SHOCKED" by another killing? You're right, it is just like alcohol and drugs; except you are NOT making the choice; the one with the weapon is. Ever thought about that? Seems a little crazy to take a bullet to save a flat screen, but this is America, crazy goes for normal.

No one ever talks about the real issue with health insurance costs. Why do we tollerate the same ones making so many expensive claims against their health insurance (taking out so much more than the the premiums they pay) and NOT FOLLOWING DOCTOR'S orders? This is one of the biggest reasons healthcare costs are out of control (healthcare fraud and greedy insurance companies are the other two).

You, my fellow American are delusional.Your own shortsightedness has corrupted the way you rationalize things. There is NO way that Obama is more conservative than me. I, unlike you, will not try to convince anyone on my beliefs. Your 5 statements are as liberal as it gets. If I have to explain it, you'd probably still not understand it. Maybe this will help you:

With everything in the news, you still think Corporations should do what they want without regs? Let Wallstreet run mainstreet? Hell with EPA - we can all buy water; FROM WHERE? Who will be on the top of the list when the supply is short and will you beable to afford it? God knows you will not beable to afford Medicare premiums (PROFITS PROFITS PROFITS).

NOT DELUSIONAL AT ALL!

How difficult is it to communicate with a corporate customer service rep?

A few months ago it was reported that some people who had hip/knee replacements are in jeopardy because NOT ALL UNITS WERE APPROVED BY THE FDA and can break down and put toxins in your blood and rust in place. Some of these people found out after they had both knees or both hips done.
You OK with that?

I cringe when I hear someone say "I have a God given right to buy/have/use a gun". BULL. Isn't there a commandment that says "THOU SHALL NOT KILL". Apparently Charlton Heston did NOT believe/follow God's word.

You definition sounds more like: I am a misguided Christain who cares only about myself yesterday today and tomorrow.

The fact that you have to call me names tells me you watch Fox News only. Do yourself a favor, change the channel. The truth shall set you free!!!

Nope, do not watch any news. That's what's a big problem today....too many sheeple watching, reading the news. I don't belong to any religion. I subscribe to common sense only. Who did Charlton Heston kill with his gun? Maybe I need to start watching the news like you to find out. I own many guns. I do not hunt. I have them for one reason and one reason only, to protect my family and I "if" needed. During WW2, the Japanese debated on if they were going to invade our country. Do you know what stopped them? A Japanese general brought up the fact that the US citizens are armed. Any foreign country would be insane to try and invade us because of our right to bear arms. I do care about myself. I cared yesterday, today and will continue tomorrow so that I can continue to raise my children at MY expense because I don't want or need anybody else to. You see.....I'm already saving your tax dollars. How many can say that? As for your ignorant rantings on PROFITS, PROFITS, PROFITS.......would you want to work and make a living from an unprofitable company/corporation? How far are you going to go in life? But I can see your liberalism. Perhaps you are one of many that leach onto the system and suck our wallets dry. I hope I'm wrong, I doubt it.

Mitt R. has been caught mis quoting Obama on more than one occasion.

Why is he lying?

Why not take this opportunity to share his vision of AMERICA with everyone.

Because every time he does, there are loopholes big enough to drive trucks through them.

Taxpayers pay taxes at the pump everytime they pay gas (only off road vehicles get around this). Businesses who have HUGE HEAVY road equipment pay more taxes because they do MORE DAMAGE! Taxpayers provided the infrastructure for the success that businesses enjoy in the way of profits!!

You may want to check out what Obama actually said about working and welfare. You will change your mind about Mitt R.(unless you like to be lied to).

Mitt's wife said that they paid what they "legally" had to. What did she mean by that. Should someone running for President have that attitude? I think not!

So very wrong on so many counts.
NEVER took one dollar of welfare in my life - but with the taxes I have paid, I would like to think if sometime in the future I needed a little help, it would be there on a Temp Basis - no shame in that.

Legit profits (after paying employees a fair wage w/benefits) are GREAT! So many corporations are still taking subsidies (which is added to their billions in profits). Paul R. and Mitt R.(and other Repubs in Congress don't want to take this money and use it for healthcare, education nor infrastructure. You think this is right? Corporate welfare?

They are laughing because we will kill each other - they can just buy tickets and watch from the sidelines. An invasion would come through messing with the internet (screw with electricity...) or our food/water supply. Would be able to do more damage that way. You do realize there are sleeper cells here don't you?

You seem to think you have it all figured out - you know what they say about the best laid plans.... People make plans and God just laughs!!!!

Obamas vision of the U.S. in a nut shell.
Keep the monorities on welfare and food stamps,promise them more right before an election.
Wake up America before it is to late.What has Obama done to help anyone,he and his wife take lavish vacations,his wife is collecting money for being on a board where she does not even attend the meetings.What about the black race,unemployment is double for blacks since Obama took office.Do not vote for this socialist clown!!!!
