INFO: Individual Mandate

RE: Obamacare.
For the record, my record. The GOP is embarrassing. The individual mandate is a long time coming, IMO. Excepting a lot of bad, the fact that this is part of ObamaCare ought to be enough for many who have to accept the fact its here.
Jeez, its not like we are sending people to war....

One Thing I Know For Certain

Taken from a thread on Obamacare:
"I didn't think so, lol. But you know, its not the any one lady in the line buying high end products all the while you can easily and correctly surmise she hasn't worked a day in twenty years, but its also the fact that her parents are in front of her and her five kids are behind her too, with no chance of a real life. And speaking of life, the taxes it takes to ruin those generations of a family on the dole is robbing the life of anyone who works for a living. We all only got so much time, and when we got to pay taxes that is in fact robbing us of life. Every hour I work to pay a tax is an hour of my life I don't get back. That stealing my life. AND there is nothing I no as certain as that. Taxes rob life. Also the welfare life is not a real life either. so many lives are being robbed or diminished through socialism."

Why I'm Independent

Taken from a thread on Obamacare:
"well yeah. I mean I'm not an Independent so that I can only take the good and disregard the bad of either party of which I belonged to. I agree with you on that. See, I'm an independent so that I can see the good in either party I choose. If I just wanted to hate on Democrats all the time, well that seems to be one half of what a Republican is anyways, and I already tried that, to my dissatisfaction. I'm of the certain belief only that it is statistically impossible for any President to be completely wrong all the time. Especially one raising kids. So I know that, and so I look for the good. Finding the bad is obvious. Just ask a Democrat when a Republican is in office."

Immigration & Wealth Disparity

Taken from a thread on Immigration:
Here's a broader conspiracy on the left: immigrants, legal or otherwise, are predominately poor. Given that, and now take this: the liberals constantly evoke the imagery of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. It absolutely serves their purpose to allow as many poor people in this country as possible to massage that statistic. You would think that if they really wanted to shrink the gap between the have's and the have not's, then they would prevent more of have not's from entering this grand society. Doesn't it seem logical to fix the disparity problem we got to address the problem? I don't know anything about the proposed law(immigration), but I do realize that its a little disingenuous to blithely go about harping about the disparity of wealth in this country, while shooing in as many people as you can that would make your statistic more profound.

The Limits of Legislation and Gun Control

Another shooting, and another round of gun control debate up ahead.
My position comes from supporting liberty.
There was another shooting , this time at a Naval Shipyard in Washington D.C. Again the perpetrator was, as they say, "a known subject."
And there is my point.
To think that legislation will make us safer when legislation can't even keep guns out of the hands of people who legislation should know shouldn't have guns?
How about this perspective, legislation has legislated a society where keeping guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have guns is the problem.
The problem isn't good gun owners doing bad things, its bad gun owners who legislation knows is bad doing what would be expected of "a known subject."
In the end, I'm siding with the idea that gun rights are liberties, that can be taken away, but I'm not going to be that guy to want to take it away from people who might very well need it someday.
Legislation ought to prove effective first, before taking more of my liberties for itself.
Legislation has created a society where I may need all my liberties, especially a gun, but legislation wants to take that liberty away?
Consider the personnel inside the Naval Yard could not carry guns. Legislation must know that within the walls it controls, there are people who shouldn't carry guns. Yet legislation was incapable
of protecting the people inside its own walls, against someone who shouldn't have a gun, where someone carrying a gun could of done some good.
