Trump has too much baggage for me. Especially the fact that he has been an ostensible friend of the Clintons and has made large donations to the Clinton foundation. I much prefer Scott Walker, who has shown that not only will he talk the talk, he will walk the walk. And he has beaten the unions and their socialist democrat politicians three times in a blue state.
One would think that after the attacks by jihadists and Islamic terrorists on our military that have occurred during Obama's regime, he or the joint chiefs would have ordered that all military personnel exposed to the public, such as recruiters, be allowed to be armed and to protect themselves. Perhaps that will be done now. But perhaps not, since Obama is still pretending that Islamic jihadist terrorist are not Islamic. And he has still not called for the reform of islam.
nota:What is it about the necessity of a country to control its borders that you do not understand?
I need to correct my post above to say it would not be socialism if everyone was wonderfully generous.
Your ignorance proves my point, notah. Socialism is based on force. Jesus never taught force. He sought to persuade people to do good,and to be loving, kind, generous and forgiving. He never sought to force them to do these things. If everyone was wonderfully generous it would be very good, but it would be socialism. Socialism is the government forcing you to give up what it wants, and forcing you do work as it says. People with good hearts, but economically ignorant, often think that christianity is like socialism. But the two are opposites. Christians give because they love others.
People in a socialist regime give because they are forced to do so. And that makes all the difference in the world.
dika: Well,after all, if Iran is going to build nuclear weapons and delivery systems it needs all the top scientists it can get. Even Obama knows this.
ash: Can you remember how Chavez began gradually taking control of the press. And most of the press , here and there, kept praising his socialist "advances". And a few warned that he would destroy a free press in his country. And when the press there finally woke up , it was too late. Their free press was gone. Once a socialist gets enough power, he never gives it back. We see Obama trampling on the constitution, and being applauded by such as yourself. Very dangerous if you do not want to live in a dictatorship, as the German people found out when they gave too much power to Adolph to "protect" them. Look at the rubble that was Germany when WWII ended and you will see how well he protected them.
and dumbing down of our schools by leftists has been. These , mostly young people, seem to be ignorant of the fact that socialism can only be imposed by force, whereas capitalism is the way free men do business. They seem ignorant of the fact that socialist regimes killed 100,000,000 people in last 100 years. They do not seem to know that socialistic regimes can never come close to matching free men in production and supplying what the citizenry want . The myriad of choice and wonderful availability of goods vanishes when a country sinks into socialism. The socialists, from Stalin to Castro , always have to fence their people in, because otherwise many would vote with their feet for freedom to work and produce as they see fit, in a relatively free country like America. We suffer from a crisis of economic and historical ignorance, brought on intentionally by leftist democrats and their ilk. Our socialist president started his political career with a communist who used to set bombs, being willing that people should die in order for him to get his way. And that willingness to kill people to force them to live under socialist command has always characterized the top officials of a country that has become fully socialist, from national socialist germany through socialist russia, north korea, and china. If socialists ever get full control here , the same thing will happen here. We have already seen more than once how flexible the conscience and legal interpretations of our SCt can be under a socialist president.
makes sure that Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world ( Islamic terrorism for those like Obama do not understand this), get nuclear weapons and the money to get delivery systems. Hooray, shout Kerry, Hillary , and the rest of the sorry crew of socialist democrats.
far: You may be right. But my theory is that not all libs are stupid and dishonest. I actually think many, especially the young, are ignorant. Maybe they will take the time to find out who Chamberlain was and how many millions of lives his policy of appeasement cost the world.
That may just be a cloud of dust raised by the crowds of illegal immigrants running into California.
But what he really accomplished was to make war in our time much more horrendous and devastating than it would have been if he had faced up to the National Socialists. Now we hear the foolish socialist democrats prattle about how Obama's bad deal with Iran will prevent war, but what Obama has really done is set the stage for a much more horrendous war than would occur if we stand up to the militantly Islamic Iran right now. No one wants war, but unless islam is reformed, war is on the way. And if we are so silly as to allow Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world, to develop nuclear weapons, we are setting the stage for great horrors.
dika: The mystery is why the Huffington Post is such a dedicated enemy of the safety, freedom and prosperity of the United States.
rjm: Absolutely Obama is responsible for his failure to call for the reform of islam and for his failure to state flatly that islamic terrorism is islamic and for his lying efforts to convince America that such events as the murderous major's attacks are not islamic terrorism, but only "workplace violence". By pretending that islamic terrorism is not a direct outgrowth of basic islamic teachings and by not calling it by its name and instead pretending that islam is a religion of peace and not of domination, he is costing American lives and allowing the radical islamists to grow stronger.
The socialists democrats will lie, cheat, and steal to cover for Obama.
Hipilot: The socialist democrats are very skillful in the use of racial hostility to keep the black voters poor, dependent, and client voters of the democrats. So far most blacks have not even been able to see how Obama's allowing swarms of illegal invaders to enter the US and take jobs away from Americans hurts them. Maybe someday they will wake up.
I love monthly dividends.
That being the case, what in the world is a recruiting office and staff doing without arms? What dishonest politically motived mind is depriving these young men from being able to shoot back? Does this come down directly from President Contemptible or is the result of our military leaders trying to play along with his hostility against the military and his pretending that militant islam is not on a jihad mission against the US and its military?
