My Views In A Nutshell...
Politically I lean to the right on most issues but I think if we all used a little common sense, we could really come up with a compromise that works for everyone.
Take abortion for instance, I abhor abortion, and anybody that knows me, knows exactly how I feel about it. You are killing a baby, not a blog of cells.
As much as I hate it, I know that it is not going anywhere. It won't be overturned, so lets work with what we have. I think it's absolutely ridiculous that you have to get permission to give an aspirin to a minor and yet a child can have an abortion without parental consent, nor even parental notification. I also believe there should be laws that limits the time they can have one to a very short interval. They should also have to watch a movie on their different choices and consequences of them and get an ultrasound. If they still want to have an abortion after that, then at least they have made an informed decision on one of the biggest choices they will probably ever have to make. We need to stop making it so damn easy they can use it as birth control!
Immigration.... Build a wall! See how easy it is? It creates jobs and keeps illegal immigrants out. China did it, why can't we? Now I agree that we can't deport every illegal immigrant that we happen to come across but I see no reason that if they commit a crime we can't ship their sorry butts back to where they come from. What to do with the ones already in the country, you may ask. They should have to do community service or serve in our military for a certain amount of years, and pay a fine. Then they can become legal citizens how all of the other immigrants do. Learn our language! All my liberal friends are probably thinking....but nobody will do the jobs that they do. That is just an excuse! To that I say, make the companies here in the U.S. pay what they are worth. These companies should be fined for hiring illegals.
Taxes.....Two words. Fair Tax. Say you throw a 10% tax across the board. No preferential treatment for being either very successful or very lazy. If you make $100,000 a year, you pay $10,000. If you only make $10,000 a year you are only paying $1000.00. Can someone please explain to me, why this isn't exactly as it is named...a fair tax?
Healthcare....a scary word in today's society, but it doesn't have to be. Why a total overhall when it just needs fixing? Would you get rid of your whole car because of a bad muffler or old tires? Of course not, why is health care any different? There are many problems in health care and I am walking, talking proof of that, but they are things that are fixable. Why can't government create certain laws that do away with pre-existing conditions for example. Put a limit on the frivolous lawsuits that make doctor's insurance go through the roof? These are things that can be addressed. I just find it entirely laughable that Obamacare is commanding you to buy insurance, that you may or may not be able to afford, and fining you for not purchasing it. Ummm, how about this, when Congress, and all government employees take this insurance, I will too.
Term limits....Do away with lifetime politicians. Do 8 years maximum. Can I hear an Amen?
Gun Control - I wholly and truly believe in the Costitution that gives us the right to bear arms. 2nd Amendment is clear as day.
Same Sex Marriage - Leave marriage alone. Fight for rights for equality and I will stand right next to you but don't try and redefine a word that has been around for over 3000 years and holds great importance in the eyes of the religious and the church. Civil Unions for everyone!
