It was Thomas Jefferson who called for "A wise and frugal Government which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry ....and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned..." He was right.
The circumstances of our time demand that we reconsider and restore the proper, limited role of government at every level.
Limited government doesn't work. Without regulation, Selfish jerks suppress everyone they can.
But most Americans do not want to turn over the best medical care system in the world to the federal government.
Best by what metric? Cost? No. IMR? No. Life expectancy? No. Coverage? No. A direct relationship between wealth and care? Yes!
we welcome your ideas on Facebook and Twitter.
We are blessed here in America with vast natural resources, and we must use them all.
What the fuck?
A child's educational opportunity should be determined by her intellect and work ethic, not by her zip code.
You forgot their parents wealth.
As Senator-elect Scott Brown says, we should be spending taxpayer dollars to defeat terrorists, not to protect them.
That's so un-American I can't even comment.
Here at home government must help foster a society in which all our people can use their God-given talents in liberty to pursue the American Dream. Republicans know that government cannot guarantee individual outcomes, but we strongly believe that it must guarantee equality of opportunity for all.
The first sentence contradicts the second.
Over-regulating employers won't create more employment; overtaxing investors won't foster more investment.
However not regulating or taxing does foster corruption!
The Scriptures say[...]
What some work of fiction says should have nothing to do with our government.
America must always be a land where liberty and property are valued and respected, and innocent human life is protected.
This further contradicts Senator Brown's statement.
Where opportunity is unequal, we must make it open to everyone.
