Far too many vote strictly along party lines. Far too few people take a sincere interest in what their vote supports. Democrats have boosted the national debt to a precarious level. Last week a poster replied to the debt problem saying it was Bush's fault. Spoke to a teacher, a democrat, he had no idea what the Dream Act allows. Some people are indifferent that Clinton is proven to be less than truthful. Few care that hundreds of millions of dollars were wasted on green energy projects, many bankrupted. From the Center of Immigration Studies..........Across the U.S., there are over 300 cities, counties, and states that are considered "sanctuary cities". These jurisdiction protect criminal aliens from deportation by refusing to comply with ICE detainers or otherwise impede open communication and information exchanges between their employees or officers and federal immigration agents. • Porous borders, that we as citizens allow, along with the ballooning debt, give Hillary 8 years and we will be on an unalterable path to be like Greece.
Going with the established political base that boosted debt to 20 trillion. Give her 8 years and watch it grow to 30 trillion. Laws and rules do not apply to Clinton royalty. Bill taught her to lie and she was a great understudy. She told her daughter and a foreign diplomat early on after Benghazi that it was not the video, not spontaneous, it was a terrorist act, yet told families that suffered the loss and the gullible public it was spontaneous, the video the reason for the attack, downplaying terrorism (on 9/11 no less) and downplayed to help reelect Obama. People died, she lied. You have become numb to the Clinton way of doing things.
In 2008, $37.6 billion was spent on the program. Current estimates put the program's total cost for 2015 at about $64 billion.

A Nation of Takers: America's Entitlement Epidemic by Nicholas Eberstadt
in 1960, entitlement payments accounted for well under a third of the federal government’s total outlays. Today, entitlement spending accounts for a full two-thirds of the federal budget. Incentivize people not to work.
Not going well for those in Europe. Hillary will make us more like Greece than Obama. Boost the national debt is all that is needed! Gross stupidity and reckless spending, the path to ruin.
About 2,000 additional emails have been retroactively classified, or up-classified, meaning the information was not classified when it was first emailed. This is a regular practice when documents are reviewed for release, according to transparency experts. Also some deleted emails have yet to be retrieved. Clinton surely is and was aware of the REGULAR PRACTICE of retroactive classification OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN. Reckless careless is what Democrats accept as A-OK in a president.
Debt bubble will pop. Average family income down. Unemployment decline obviously forcing people to take low paying jobs as their unemployment benefits terminate.
Anti-pipeline, anti-business as well as racially divisive IMO. Affordable care act, foisted onto people, forcing the healthy to pay for the sell-abusive (overeaters, drinkers, high-risk occupations and recreation risk-takers, smokers and dopers). Only upheld by the Supreme Court by the court ruling it a tax. Was it presented that way? NOPE! Gruber revealed how the administration conned the public. Debt! Ready for 30 trillion by the time Clinton's term is done? Green energy bankruptcies, a complete waste of taxpayers' money.
Bottom line, the worst president is still in office.
You won't like the comparison I'm about to make. One of the biggest causes politicians make, it's equality. Gender equality, racial equality, earing or pay equality, you get the idea. Consider the Old West when so many were carrying a fairly equal firearm. Take any of the shooter events; for example if everyone were equally armed and clad in body armor like the perp, Holmes, how many people would have been killed, besides Holmes? 12 dead, 70 injured, THAT surely wouldn't have been the toll. I am only offering this outrageous and super-hypothetical scenario to make a point. Equality matters, especially when it comes to firepower. Outlaw guns, only outlaws will have them. Murderers, mass murderers, they don't and won't ever obey the law. Too bad you avoided posting any data that shows how many lives guns save. Ask your self, would a terrorist turn in his weapon in a firearm ban?
You basically repeated the Obama tactic of asking questions, however. "How does "Islamic terrorist" language defeat these primitives? " Excuse me, primitives, no, they are radical Islamic terrorists. You continued with "to link all Muslims around the world to terrorism is just stupid." Someone does do that. But I think you hint that someone is Trump. You do know what happened to the Japanese during WWII, do you not? I think it overly cautious yet prudent to ban Muslims from entering our country temporarily. Nearly all of us are unaware that ISIS took control of a governmental building in Syria. One of the treasures they acquired, equipment to produce Syrian passports. Printing illegitimate passports that pass border scrutiny, quite the it's all good entry ticket to commit terror. The media has, to a near perfect degree, under-covered this detail.
My overall point, in times of war, innocent people, good people are the victims of unfair discrimination. But within every 100 that may seem innocent, I expect at least 2 or 3 within that 100, their mindset is set to commit some sort of atrocity. Ask yourself, when in war is there absolute PC correctness? Truth is Obama handles this global turmoil (which includes more than ISIS) in a very, very overly politically correct way. Too much talk, not enough action from a man who should be considered leader of the free world but certainly doesn't deserve to be thought of that way.
If someone breaks U.S. immigration law, don't call them an illegal alien, refer to them respectfully as an undocumented worker. That's a sham unto itself. Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez cut short the life of a beautiful woman in her prime. He was deported FIVE TIMES! Congressional indifference combined with sanctuary city liberalism by our governments (federal and local) leaving Kate's Law UNPASSED. The rampant PC momentum this country as experienced, it's actual weakening us all at our very core. There are far too many people coddling evil as a method to somehow bait evil with tender loving care, as if the evil-doers will be won over by such a feeble ploy. Gun control, Sanchez stole the gun from a governmental employee or purchased it from someone who did. Do-gooders, to a large degree, have little concept of how deeply evil resides in some of us. They are numb to the truth that evil finds ways around law. We are fast approaching an election that will result in more of the same or just maybe, we elect someone who truly can change things.

We, as a culture, have become less informed about how our government impacts our daily lives. Much of what government does besides, taking care of themselves (did you know insider trading was made illegal for congressmen, but then later, they are allowed, reversing the ban, to trade on insider info and they have their health care paid for by the taxpayer) WHILE also increasing governmental positions. The citizenry remains distracted to what truly shapes their lives. Ever wonder why the vast majority in Hollywood lean left? I don't.
They are a big part of team distraction. How about the tax code which contains more than 74,000 pages. Does any sane individual find that volume necessary? The busier they keep us and the more we are distracted, the more free reign big government assumes. Get it?
Seriously, you're under Obama ether. This president the "most transparent" in history (a lie) allowing the Lerner IRS team off by pleading the fifth. The deceit to get the 'affordable' health care act passed, never presented as a tax but upheld by the Supreme Court as a tax; aforementioned deceit admitted by Gruber, 9/11 Part 2 Benghazi, Obama's specific whereabouts during that horrific event, what was he doing, non-disclosed, billions lost on green energy companies while gasoline/oil got exceptionally cheap, a massive national debt increase but you'll defend his use of language? Obama is incapable of running this country and you AND he are so out of touch, you both justifying let's not offend Muslims with our language. And BTW, Capone levered the fifth amendment and guess what Capone, of Italian descent, he was a murderer.
Before I expand on the above, let's review the first lady, Feb. 2008. "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country..." I cut the sentence short since the because doesn't matter. Besides she virtually repeated it again later, “For the first time I am proud of my country.” Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol said,
“She was an adult when we won the Cold War without firing a shot. She was an adult for the last 25 years of economic progress, social progress...” As far as I'm concerned, this first lady is dead last on the list of first ladies (with second to last far out front).
Now to our president who has such a tough time with 3 words, radical Islamic terrorism. "What exactly would using this label accomplish? What exactly would it change?" Obama asked during remarks at the Treasury Department. "Would it make ISIL less committed to try and kill Americans?" he continued, using a different acronym for ISIS. "Would it bring in more allies? Is there a military strategy that is served by this? The answer is none of the above," he said. "Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away." Obama likes the 20 questions method evidently. Radical Islamic (they call it jihad) terrorism exists. Whether you call it any number of things doesn't diminish what it is. As for the evil doers can you imagine how pleased they are that this president wants to define evil as restrictively as he does. Michele (I know, she is unaware of this message) never in my life have I been more embarrassed by how a man in the oval office, supposed leader of the free world, how he devotes so much vigor to NOT offend those who are outright evil.
Stephen Hawking, without argument, a theoretical physicist, an IQ of 160 (a tad lower than Einstein and well below the 250+ of William James Sidis) relies heavily on theory, not proof. Does Hawking weigh in on Hillary's appeal? Perhaps, debt-addicted 'problem solvers' that see debt as the absolute solution for just about anything. The more things to solve, the more we increase the debt?
