Now you sound like Eisenhower but the SCOTUS ruling in Felming Vs Nestor in 1960 stated Congress has the authority to reduce or eliminate Social Security benefits at anytime regardless to an individuals contributions and been that way for 53 years.

"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

I look for that to come real shortly since the Ponzi Scheme called Social Security in trouble which I cant blame employers for off shoring jobs.

Me and the swamp fox General Moseby will obey orders but I think we have McClellan beat as well as Grant who was hated by his troops for ordering them into enemy strongholds that caused numerous casualties. Just win the war no thought of his soldiers risks, thus the nickname the Butcher. Stonewall was killed by his own sentrys he was like Patton wanted on frontlines. Commander-in-Cheif you will make history books as one of the greatest. Safer World 2013

I totally agree 100% that she is a lunatic which dont say much for California that keeps re-electing her but is also responsible the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban that she got help from then Senator Joe Biden which helped here get it through the Senate and onto the White House which Clinton signed into law and considers any gun an assault weapon.

"considers any gun an assault weapon"
a slight exaggeration I'm sure.
think about it and dont underestimate them.

According to a December 27th posting on her website and a draft bill obtained by the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, the legislation would define “assault weapons” to comprise a much larger variety of firearms than ever before, require current owners of those included to register them with the Federal Government noting locations, impose a $200 tax per firearm, prohibit their transfer to other people, and require that those weapons be forfeited and destroyed upon the owners’ deaths.

providing and watching are hardly the same thing, are they? The vast majority of conservatives don't need the government to provide for them, they are self sufficient.
not todays Conservatives which are most former modern liberals of FDR which are classified as Neo Cons.

Neo Conservatives in American politics is someone presented as a conservative but who actually favors big government, interventionalism, and a hostility to religion in politics and government. The word means "newly conservative," and thus formerly liberal. A neocon is a type of RINO, and like RINOs does not accept most of the important principles in the Republican Party platform.

Many older neocons had been liberals in their youth and admired President Franklin D. Roosevelt, while younger neocons are more economically conservative than Roosevelt but like to downplay the social issues. In 2010 the highest priority of the neoconservatives was to increase military action by the United States in the Middle East and Afghanistan, and to expand it to an American confrontation against Iran; in 2011 their goals include supporting a military attack on Libya, continuing the Afghanistan War indefinitely, and even suggesting military action against Syria. There is a revolving door between some neocons and highly paid positions in the defense industry, which may explain the constant neoconservative demands for more wars.


Neoconservatives were prominent in the George W. Bush administration by supporting an interventionist domestic policy they called 'compassionate conservatism' and a strong foreign policy, and especially favored the Iraq War and its efforts to spread democracy worldwide.
