I think your time would be better spent getting your country back. When you do regress us back to the 50's, please reinstate the top income tax rates to those times so the rich fucks you've slurped over all your life go back to paying their fair share. Can you handle that?

It's all good. You just hang on a little while in order that we get all the support systems in place, all for you.

Question is, do we have enough institutions for all you old relics, that think you need your country back. Sorry us younger folks aren't falling in line for you anymore.

So whats this thread about?

As far as getting our country back:

1. We need to have proper immigration policys - ie people without legal green cards and passports need to go whereever they came from. Or Allow a certain amount to stay if they meet a certain criteria and not a criteria based on how much of the US tax dollars they have used up even if they have been here 10 years-20 years etc.
3 years ago I was under immigration policys as a chiropractor here in the UK and had to comply else I would be forced to leave; even thou I brought a skill to this country.

I also know many great british people and europeans that would love to work in the US; but cannot. I do not see why they are not allowed to come to the US and bring a skill and work; meanwhile others which do not bring skills are allowed to come.

As long as people go through the proper immigration I am fine with it; if they dont - they need to leave and we do not need to pay them to leave or pay them to stay in our country or give them the option to never leave.

2. Guns - Guns do not make us safe. "82 people were shot in an 84-hour window in chicago over 4th of july"; I could list numerous cases about gun violence. School shootings etc ... I know many of you hear support people having guns in the US.

I find the shooting and killing news - depressing. Things like this do not happen in britain - we dont have a guy walk into a mc donalds and open fire killing numerous people week after week. If there is some kind of murder its big news and it involves only a very few people.

So less guns. A lot less IMO.

Same reason we dont want every tom dick and harry country to own nuclear weapons.

3. Banking industry - this fixed yet?

4. Health care in the US. First off there needs to be a paradigm shift to pay health care workers to keep people healthy instead of based on what they do - ie procedures and tests.

anyways - tell me whom to vote for next time that has the above values.

1. The greed of the wealthy prohibits immigration reform. This country has always been run on cheap or slave labor costs, and the illegals are the modern day slaves.

2. Yeah right. This issue will never be addressed. America loves its guns and doesn't care who owns them.

3. Um, this is a greed thing too. Too much unearned money being made off of the backs of the working man in this country to change this system.

4. Quit talking like a socialist, haven't you been reading these forums to know that health care reform and capitalism cannot coincide?

In conclusion, when people like Foster whine about "getting their country back", all that is would be a bunch of bigotted lingo from people that have been sitting in control forever. They see the end of their reign, and are just pissed off because their isn't a damn thing they are going to be able to do about it except watch. Nothing but pure entertainment for me. I will admit to being a sadistic little prick that likes to poke the bear. Watching people trying to talk their way out of being bigots is pretty fun for me. Especially when they go the God and Constituion route. Then you really know they are full of shit.

It's encouraging to see some new blood have the balls and brains to show some interest in politics.

On your #1, as Dakota said, America does benefit from the cheap labor of illegals. He says that like it's a bad thing hahahaha. The current massive influx, though, is perplexing. It reminds me of when Castro suddenly allowed/sent all those Cuban boat people - some sort of an organized effort to disrupt here, especially the unaccompanied kids - which is basically taking advantage of the inherent niceness of Americans. I see the whole thing as an annoyance rather than a big deal.

On your #2, how many of those Chicago gun fights were with LEGAL guns? Damn few, I bet. I refer you to the famous bumper sticker: when guns are outlawed, only the outlaws will have guns. I've never been very enthused about the issue of gun rights, but it's true, the left is more concerned with harrassing the good people who own guns than solving the problem of gun crime - or crime in general.

Your #3: the banking industry is just fine. The Federal Reserve - although hated by many - does a great job of dealing with problems so they have minimal effect on regular people - compare the recent "Great Recession" to the debacle of the Great Depression of the 1930s or the various "Panics" all through the 1800s when regular people really did suffer.

#4: It's been said that Obama and the leftists KNOWINGLY made Obamacare such a clusterfuck that it would eventually result in a single-payer system. Just about everybody is worse of one way or another now because of it. I, even though I am a conservative, would not really be opposed to a single-payer system - provided it did NOT result in higher taxes (yes, that could be done - with debt financing). You're in Britain; You see such a system at work. Tell us, is it good or bad?

As for who to vote for, it's a LOT easier to say who NOT to vote for, and they have the last name Paul - Rand or Ron. Obama has done his damnedest to drag down America, and the good times keep on rollin'. I doubt another leftist would be any worse, but electing just about any of the plethora of conservatives other than the Pauls would bring a step upward in a lot of ways - primarily on the defense/foreign policy/security front, but there seems to be behind the scenes forces preventing even the left from straying too far in the wrong direction in those areas. The Pauls, however, based on their non-interventionist words, would be a serious threat to harm America. If you want a name at this early point, I'd say Paul Ryan.

I have to disagree with the original premise that we, the good people, need to take back America. I say we never lost it.

1. Immigration. Americans have been bitching about immigrants pretty much since the beginning. IMO, proper immigration policy should be: Do you have a communicable disease? If so, you can't come in until you get rid of it. If not, welcome to America.

2. Guns. Governments have killed far more people with guns than private citizens. By multiple orders of magnitude. The only people who should not be allowed to bear arms are elected officials and government bureaucrats.

3. Health care. Not going there anymore. Anyone who thinks the government can either (i) improve the quality of health care or (ii) reduce its cost is, IMO, delusional. Dealing with my 92-y.o. mother's dementia is enough delusion to deal with.

4. Banks. Historically, banks have been joined at the hip with the state/king/powers-that-be. For awhile, Brits and Americas emphasized a different sort of banking -- the sort where lending decisions were shaped primarily by local needs and localized markets. This was viewed as so important that, for awhile, we even prohibited almost all branch banking. Banks were defined by Main Street, not Wall Street and not Pennsylvania Avenue.
Then came Woodrow Wilson. Keynes. The Federal Reserve System and "monetary policy". And, eventually, banks resumed their historical emphasis -- kings and nations and the powers-that-be. And "corporate" became the word. And after a few generations of this incestuous old-fashioned banking, they're "too big to fail."

None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

We are past the point of no return I believe. Every day we live free is a blessing. My thoughts are with those who live without hope and are in the constant presence of fear. The latest stories and pictures from the invasion in Ghaza are just too tragic for words.

I know you don't live in the states so you probably don't keep up with this but it is funny you mention all the shootings in Chicago. Do you know they have the strictest gun laws in the country and also have the most murders. The 2 places with the strongest gun laws are also the ones with the most murders.


I am totally lost on the whole problem with immigration, we have plenty of laws for this and also have a procedure for anyone that wants to become a citizen, why is it so hard to follow these laws. It is pretty black and white either you went thru the procedure and became a citizen or your illegal (which last time I checked does still mean against the law) and you should be sent out of the country.
