Your personal freedom and your rights

The right to be free is endowed by our Creator and is the premise of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the American way of life. The Constitution is a timeless document that guarantees our basic freedoms. We support personal freedom so all Americans can live life the way they want as long as it does not harm others, or infringe on another’s rights.

We are most free when the Constitution is followed and each branch of government serves as a check and balance to the others. We are a nation of written laws. One law for all and equal application of the law is a founding principle that distinguishes America from the lands immigrants fled to escape oppression. No American President, Republican or Democrat, should ever go around the Constitution, no matter how important the issue. No government entity is above the law, and no public official may act outside or above the law. Yet, we have seen that Washington has a reckless disregard for the rule of law and balance of powers.

When our leaders pick and choose which elements of the laws they choose to enact or grant waivers and exemptions to groups of their choice, they undercut the Constitution and demonstrate to us their belief that laws do not apply to them, and that they think they are different from the citizens who elect them. When government leaders lose the public’s trust, we will exercise our right to be outspoken, and to vote, and to say “No More.”

The government has become too big and too powerful and many of those in Washington have grown out of touch with the citizens they represent. We recognize the government is slowly taking away basic freedoms we each deserve. For instance, every American deserves the freedom to make a phone call and send an email without the government monitoring what we say and write. Every American should have the right to choose our own doctor and which insurance plan we want to purchase without the government penalizing us for not purchasing something we do not want or need. Washington continues to pass laws taking even more freedoms away. Americans sense a freedom gap, between how we value freedom and how free we actually feel today, with an elevated sense that the American Dream is becoming harder to reach.

We support policies that protect and defend personal freedom and individual rights, and the ability to pursue the American Dream without government intrusion. We also support policies that will reclaim those freedoms and rights that have been eroded through intrusive policies of unaccountable politicians and Washington bureaucrats, many of whom answer to special interests and lobbyists rather than their electorate.

We believe that our freedom is America’s greatest strength, and that any policy or action that restricts or erodes that strength is detrimental to the potential and growth of our country.

We stand for economic freedom which means a growing economy with reduced tax rates and reduced government spending so we all have a chance to earn more money and businesses can hire more people. We support policies that allow you to keep more of your own money to do with as you see fit and policies that will provide for and enable opportunities to find good jobs or create and grow businesses. Likewise, we support policies that will present the best chances for the United States to grow and maintain its position as the world leader for economic opportunity.

Washington has made it very difficult [1] for the average person to get ahead and it has been very poor stewards of our tax dollars.[2] Many of its policies, no matter what the initial intent might have been, often end up restricting economic opportunities and job growth, the encumbrance of additional taxes and regulations [3] are sure means to failure.

With lower taxes, individuals and families will have greater resources and opportunity. It is in keeping with the principles of the American Dream: Working hard and being rewarded; keeping more of what you earn, and using it as you believe is in your best interest without harming others. The surest road to this economic growth and the freedom from our looming debt is through a tax policy that is fair, flat, and fixed. If it were, individual Americans would best determine the use of their money, and businesses would be afforded the predictability of tax rates, allowing them to grow and hire more employees.

While America’s founding principles began as a beacon to anyone running from tyranny, today’s permanent political class has become a significant roadblock to pursuing and achieving the American Dream. This has resulted in a lower standard of living for too many,[4] and the general feeling of financial uncertainty and despair among those who used to believe in hope, sensing that their American Dream is far out of reach. Tea Party Patriots support greater competition among producers and providers, which will compel competitive pricing for goods and services. We support policies that empower individual citizens, not Washington’s insiders, thus reducing what Washington spends so more can remain in your hands; empowering you to decide the best use of your money.

It wasn't a typo. They were so convinced that Obamacare would so widely embraced they failed to consider the possibility that there would be states who wouldn't have them.
There is a simple solution to this and it isn't Obama's pen. The Congress needs to re-write the law.
more than that, the bill was intentionally written in this manner to force states to set up their own exchanges....

The “libertarian moment” discussions will also invariably feature polls that show a majority of Americans favor legalizing weed and gay marriage, both issues that libertarians have been talking about for years.

Have a fun day
The conspiracy lies within the Federal Reserve System - if there is any conspiracy.

Libertarians want less government even if it means risking stoners driving behind the wheel of every car and everyone marrying their own brother.

And no EPA to oversee the safety of our food.

Wanting less government is good. But there's enough rational people on both sides to keep their "wild and potentially dangerous" side in check.

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. His meals are provided at no cost to him. He gets regular doctor visits. For this he pays nothing , and nothing is required of him. His housing is also provided to him at no charge. If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. All of his costs are picked up by me who has to go out and earn a living every day. OMG, It just hit me, my dog is A DEMOCRAT.
Gee Whiz, your analogy is correct? Although its probably going to be decried by the leeches on this board? Very properly expounded upon.

What difference does it make to you? You have made the claim that Jesus never existed. I use Jesus as an example when talking to Rethugs because THEY are the ones whose platform specifically states that it is their "continued reliance on Divine Providence" that guides them. If that were true, and it isn't, they would be doing everything they could to see that the poor have access to good medical care. No one cares about your insane obsession with prescription drugs.

While they're boiling, prepare a huge bowl of potato latkes and add to that a large handful of unleavened flour for flavor... pepper is expensive so skip that, and we ALL know what happens to jews if you add salt!
