It's not your fault you're isolationist.
Our lamestream media is inept, like barock.
America has an important role in the world, whether our president is a coward or not. FDR knew this. I think barock does too. It's why he put the Bush terror tactics on steroids and taps every phone call. I just wish he used it on his muslim bros. instead of the TEA party and his political enemies.
barock turned arab spring to winter. It's mostly because he turned recession to depression, but his leading from behind was also instrumental.
I'm an isolationist and a protectionist, much like our founding fathers. I believe in budgeting 90% of ones income, tops. We should not only be having a balanced budget, we should be saving 10% a year. I can't praise anyone who supports going deeper in debt with China. We need to revitalize our own job market and that shouldn't include 1 illegal alien.

I agree with your latter sentiment about saving. I help people save for a living.

I support LEGAL immigration.

The Founding Fathers existed in a world without the internet and nuclear weapons. General George Washington is my favorite President. Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum.

After WW2 everyone agreed hitler could have been nipped in the bud if france or England had shown leadership.

Do you support doubling legal immigration and tripling the number of work visas granted?

Only if it's coupled with securing the border and prosecuting those that hire ILLEGALS.

America was built by LEGAL immigrants. This should continue.

That attitude is way too neocon for me, not to mention what you propose is totally unverifiable.

Iraq was a real war for about a week.

The run to Baghdad was historic. Two American Divisions, one US Army and one USMC, drove right up both banks of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers like hot TEA party knives through pork barrel spending.

The occupation and re-building was a counter-insurgency operation, not a conventional war.

What's your position? No borders? Amnesty? Prisons filled to capacity with MS 13 members?

We wouldn't need 0failurecare were it not for generational welfare and ILLEGAL immigration bankrupting our hospitals.

My position is exactly what Boehner's stated position was, enforcement first. Enforcement first means mandatory Everify for ALL employment, housing, government assistance, education and drivers licenses. It means clarifying our stupid interpretation of the 14th amendment to what it was meant for and that doesn't mean automatic citizenship for children born here to illegal aliens. We're the only developed country in the world that still maintains this policy. We may be in agreement so far. Where we disagree most is where I also disagree with Boehner. There is no need to couple enforcement with any kind of increased legal immigration or visas. That's absurd. We already have the MOST generous immigration policy in the world. We also have stagnant wages and high unemployment because our representatives have turned a blind eye on illegal immigration which has allowed our labor market to be flooded. I know you're fully aware of how the law of supply and demand ties into that. Boehner is trying to tie increasing legal immigration and visas to enforcement but that's all BS like 1965 and 1986. Boehner's proposal is immigration first with a promise of enforcement later. This always results in later invariably turning into NEVER. It's just too easy to get a stooge like Napolitano or Jeh to certify that the border is secure, regardless of the situation. It's all a scam. Right now the tea party Republicans are the only thing standing between us and amnesty and I stand with them. The Republican leadership has to go, IMHO.

If Hillary came to my house I wouldn't let her sit down. I don't want any of that stuff getting on my chair. Viva Ralph Nader. Viva independents. Viva Hillary for cookie maker.
