That is still to be seen. Personally, I believe America will be the ultimate loser so, as I said, I'll just sit back and watch this three ring circus.

Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, George Soros, hundreds of thousands of military members, the Patriotic Millionaires (an actually group, you can look them up) and many, many others.

The only thing I have ever said about race and the Republican or Democrat party is that there were probably about as many that voted for Obama because he is black as supported McCain or Romney because they are not black. You want to go further than that, go for it.

I see who pays the government by state. Red states are takers for the most part and Blue states are producers for the most part. Have you looked at how poorly a farm job pays? MOst agricultural jobs are eligable for public assistance. You are free to talk about the lazy farmers just wanting stuff for free. Heck, they pay the workers like crap and then they take farm subsidies on top of it.

Red states also tend to be the ones that are less educated. Want to discuss that?

Was a dime spent this year that was not approved by the Republican House of Representatives? And you can't blame the President for asking for stuff and they were just approving his request. We know how many votes the Presidents budget got. So anything spent was the idea of the House.

I, personally, would propose making all guns illegal. But I'd accept semi-automatics and hand guns being illegal. Until that day comes, and it will come, I want real background checks for all purchases and a paper trail of purchase documentation for all guns and a national database of purchases and ownership.

I also think we need to seriously address the lack of mental health diagnosis and care.

Fortunately, the US Constitution protects us from such foolishness.

Not without an amended Constitution - and good luck with that.

Already the law. ATF Form 4473.

Now you're getting warmer. How about mandatory reporting to LE by shrinks and medicos and a national database of mental defectives and emotionally disturbed people? You know, the potential killers?
