The FairTax will never be put in place. If it was it would be so different from the current fairytale version you would not know things had changed, because they would not have. The same people who control 90% of the money in the U.S. would have the most input on ways to keep the basic systems the rich currently enjoy to avoid tax.. We have to spend energy fixing the current system and stop wasting time on the fairytaletax & anything Ron Paul. Jobs will solve a lot of our problems, so with that in mind you are also the problem.
Negative on me being the problem. You know what the problem is. You know what the solution is. Don't assume I am a Ron Paul supporter, in fact, far from it.

Like sending in Elvis to replace TINY TIM as the main bill.
Its a bit more complicated that you seem to understand. It also concerns me that the people you want to save this country have not been able to get politicians to give them what they need, just what politicians want them to have. What really concerns me is this group has not been effective since WW 2, thats the last time our military WON a WAR.

We need to start a movement to elect REAL MEN. Retired soldiers to all elected offices. Both men and women soldiers. Not libertine panty wastes like we have now in elected offices. The laws and society needs to be molded to a moral decent functioning state. Not this cess pool of anything goes swamp we have now. The country is like parents gone out of town and the house is run by kids having a RISKY BUSINESS-ANIMAL HOUSE pot party.
I would be more than willing to support a candidate with military experience.

Granted we need a change in politicians but not baby killers. I would come nearer accepting those that refused to serve.

The reason current politicians are so willing to send soldiers to die overseas is because they themselves have not served and have no sons in the military who are risking their lives. Mitt Romney is the perfect example. In fact, Vietnam-era draft dodgers who are current politicians are an even better example.

Would note that Chuck Hagel is a Vietnam Vet and would make a fine Secretary of Defense and that those that oppose him never served in the US military or worse, were draft dodgers. Am looking at you Rush Limbaugh.

there is some merit to what you say about our military not being effective or having won a war since ww2,but just look at where we have been and why we have been there!imho,with the possible exception of getting the taliban and bin laden out of afgan.,these 'wars' have been the results of pure political folly.at any rate,these(somewhat mixed)results are not the fault of our armed forces.they are second to none!a few yrs.ago,fidel castro was quoted as saying that the U.S.was the greatest military power that had ever existed in the history of the world.and i agree with him on that much.

Draft dodgers? You forgot Ted Nugent and Dick Cheney. Non-military defense hawks? That would include most of the GOP.

Look at the numbers and you'll find answers. 2.4 million jobs are directly linked to the military/industrial complex. Plus, the US has 2.2 million men and women in uniform. Plus, the US spends more on it's military, including hardware, than the next 13 nations do COMBINED and that includes Russia and China! Add in what the CIA spends, which is secret, and it would probably be 18 nations!

That's a lot of money and profits for people like Halliburton (sp). Can you imagine what would happen to the economy if the US were to suddenly cut back (or not start wars)?

Castro may or may not have said that, but looked what happened at the Bay Of Pigs! Face it: we're war mongers and that's nothing to be proud of!

I sent Saxby a quarter rencently and told him to add it to my portion of the tax deficit. I hope it didn't push him over the edge to retire. I feel kind of guilty. Do you think maybe it was just the last straw and I broke the camels back. I feel awful. I got a letter back from him but I was afraid to open it so I just threw it away. Bless his heart. I hope this wasn't my fault. I kinda liked the old guy. Oh Well.

i agree,and was not advocating that we elect milatary people to office.also agree about the "bay of pigs"fiasco.castro 'did' make that statement,but it was not said to flatter the U.S.,on the contrary,he was boasting about how cuba had stood up to us.

To have the strongest military you must have the strongest economy. Obama was groomed to ruin the economy so America will fall. Athiests get their way but no Creationism. Gays in the Boy Scouts. Lesbians in the Girl Scouts. Legal dope smoking states. Same sex marriage. Next child molestors and bestiality shall get their so called RIGHTS recognized. We already got Hemlock Kevorkians and Abortion on Demand. But our government's main focus for out lawing is our guns.
Guess your post means you donít support Hillary in 2016? In the not too distant future you Tea Party types will be looked upon as a last hooray of a backward people.

Do you really believe after that Benghazi fiasco that she has a snowball's chance in Hell of being elected to even street sweeper. I don't think so!! When they questioned her all she did was answer with questions. Duh, real bright. I'm not a tea party type. I'm not a joiner, just an activist that never wants to see an American Ambasssdor beg for help. CIA saying they were being over run and Washington sitting on ther thumbs and 4 brave Americans dying. Literally fighting on American soil in a foreign land. You really think she can win. Dream on!! Let's not forget the Fast and Furious fiasco where Border Agent Terry was murdered by weapons we planned on tracing to terrorist in Mexico. Many Mexican citizens were killed with those guns too. How soon we do forget when we can't see the forrest for the trees.

You're not very informed either. All weekend the news agencies (FOX included) were reporting that if Hillary ran the job would be hers, as nobody else could win.
