    A progressive income tax is essential to our way of life; too much wealth in the hands of too few is the death knell for a Republic;

    We must respect the earth and protect it from those who do not;

    A living wage protects all and fuels the economy; a maximum wage protects the republic;

    Free speech shall not be abridged, nor a license to commit bribery (Citizens United v. FEC was a wrongheaded decision);

    Guns kill. A civilized society recognizes this fact and seeks ways and means to reduce murder;

    Declarations of war against a noun are absurd (war on poverty, war on terror, war on drugs);

    Problems need to be defined before solutions are implemented. Before solutions are implemented they need to be vetted, honestly and openly;

    One man, one vote; in congress and throughout the land;

    Universal preventative healthcare (a dollar of prevention is worth 100 dollars of cure);

    Put America and Americans first; rebuild our infrastructure with American products and American labor.

    Wait. What?
    Independently and without someone wielding them?
    What about a proper noun, like Nazi Germany?
    Nice rhetoric. What's your proposal, exactly?


    You do have more than slogans and catchphrases, right?

    Right! The only fair and balanced way to go is with a "flat tax." :)

    It is better to say nothing and be considered a fool, than post your thoughts and confirm it.

    Only people kill people.

    People with guns and mega clips can kill even more people.
