NRA members should be aware of the effects of you very effective lobbing. Not to mention the street violence that we are all aware off. This is a political discussion of the directions your leaders have taken you. Your lobbing has been in control of the government for many years now. If you copy the following link into your title bar you will see the effects of your great work. http://www.silverb earcafe.com/privat e/07.12/television .html.  (Aug 1, 2012 | post #1)

Congress Of The United States: Campaign reform

Greetings, I just signed the following petition addressed to: Congress Of The United States. ---------------- Campaign reform I think its important to have a government for the people, and by the people because we sure don't have that now. This is what I want done. We the people want a constitutional amendment with a program that takes politics and money out of elections for public office. It could be called Citizens for Fair Elections. Congress shall write a charter and write specific rules on how the program will be run. The rules must include acceptable forms of campaigning and provide a way to disseminate information in regards to candidates’ positions on government owned media operations. The government shall operate web sites, radio stations, control printed information, and television stations which will all be used to get this information to the general public. All candidates shall get equal and fair time for the particular office they are running for; paid for by taxpayers. Time allocation shall be granted by entering a petition of names to be eligible to run for the office they are seeking. The person in charge of media operations should be appointed for eight years term. All government elections shall have the same rules which shall make it illegal for candidates to do direct advertising except on government controlled media within the set guidelines. Any candidate who is guilty of breaking these rules shall be taken off the ballet and ineligible to run for office. If an outside group like a pact pays for this advertising they and Media that runs such advertising will pay a finical penalty.  (Jun 5, 2012 | post #1)

Paul vs Conway: The Nastiest Debate Of 2010 | TPMDC

In the constitution it says to This is an itemized social contract of democratic philosophy. It details how the more perfect union was to be carried out between the national government and the people. The people are to be provided (a) justice, (b) civil peace, (c) common defense, (d) those things of a general welfare that they could not provide themselves, and (e) freedom. A government of "liberty and union, now and forever", unfolds when “We” begin and establish this Constitution. To me those things of general welfare has to include Health Care for the 50 million that can't provide it for them selves. Paul talks about the constitution but doesn't want to follow it. My question is how can you vote for this man? All this because the rich don't want to pay there fare share.  (Apr 9, 2012 | post #13704)

How did you figure that out? Paul voted against every jobs bill before congress last year. 65% of all jobs are directly or indirectly for the government. So when these clown say that government can't create jobs they are lying. Ask them who is paying their salary. If you want a jobe your best chance is th vote for a democrat.  (Apr 9, 2012 | post #13702)

Tell Coats to take the Keystone pipeline out of the free trade zone and then he would be doing something for this country. Then it would be built. You won't see any republican do that Then the oil company's would have to pay taxes on the money they make on it.  (Mar 12, 2012 | post #1656)

Energy

President Obama Dear Mr. President When it comes to energy there is no free lunch. Our struggle with energy is like our struggle with cancer. We have spent tons of money over a very long period of time and still no clear cut solution. There are three very important reasons to solve the energy problem. The first is global warming. If scientists are correct, and I believe they are this alone should cause panic to solve this problem. The second reason is health; again scientists tell us that because we burn coal we kill 10,000 people a year because of the pollution. To put this into prospective we just spent close to a Trillion Dollars on a war because our enemies’ Killed 3,000 of our people. I think maybe we are fighting the wrong battles. How much pollution do you create by trying to clean coal you’re better off leaving it in the ground undisturbed? Where do you put the crap in our water supply? How do you clean something that is all bad for you? Now for the third and most important reason to get on the right tract for energy. The amount of money that leaves this country to people that don’t pay taxes on the money and in some cases spend that money to hurt our country. They don’t employ American workers ether. In a country that needs to get there finical house in order this is crazy. Over the last 10 years were talking about $3,500,000,000,000 .00 Dollars. That’s 3 trillion 500 billion. Now you know where the jobs are. I believe that Nuclear should be our first choice cleaner than anything else. Safer than the rest by far plus we have plenty of it, and there are as you know new technology coming to even make it safer and cheaper. Most of our electricity should be by nuclear. The next choice is natural gas. It can be used to generate electric and fuel for transportation. Trucking companies and big gas producers have already started to do this without government help. What I say is how about the average guy. I want this for cars because it’s cheaper, cleaner and can supply electric to the electric car. The only one to benefit is the consumer so no one else cares if this happens. The big natural gas companies have their hands full trying to get the trucking companies using natural gas. Again where is the government? Second cleanest source of energy 30% to 40% cleaner than gasoline and lots and lots of jobs. As far as I can see these are our best choices. We have large supplies of both. You would say solar, but you need to store that energy for later and batteries cause more pollution than coal. The same is true for wind. Some times to solve one problem we crate one that is much worse. I have been complaining now for at least 8 years and still no action from our government. Sooner or later we need to take action. How long are we going to chase our tail? We need an energy policy NOW!!!!!!! I would like to thank you for your time and I know you stand with the 99% and as the song goes we shall overcome some day.  (Feb 18, 2012 | post #1)

Its the safest cleanest energy that,s on a large enough scale to do what we need. Coal kills 10,000 people a year. The use of coal should be stopped.  (Feb 18, 2012 | post #2)
