    -Promotes freedom of speech and religion without any preference nor discrimination for any religion.

    - A non-aggressive foreign policy without neocolonialism and trying to force "democracy" onto any sovereign nation, essentially a foreign policy that protects our country and people without forcing other countries to be like us.

    - An economic policy that grants the most freedom to businesses who create jobs and help the economy, not based on the amount of wealth accumulated. No minority of businesses or people will accumulate disproportionate amounts of wealth. Tax cuts will be given to businesses that actually create jobs and stimulate the economy with as little damage to the environment that can be done since it is useless and counter productive to overload a country with environmental laws that are too stringent.

    - A social welfare system that would eliminate or lower poverty, but one that overwhelmingly geared towards getting people to use as less government money as possible to prevent whole generations of families being on welfare, ie, to continue to receive welfare the recipients have to contribute something in the form of public works. The current welfare system as maintained and advanced by Democrats does *NOT* help people since its intent is only to give aid, not to empower people to do for themselves. The Republicans vision is equally flawed, starving people will not motivate them and only in a perfect Republitard utopia would all people be able to work themselves off of welfare completely, not in real 2011 America.


    Simplification of the tax code and elimination of *ALL* tax shelters and loopholes for the super rich as this will lower the need to raise taxes on all and allow the middle classes to keep more of their money which in turn will help the economy. Items such as cigarettes, alcohol, all forms of pornography, sugary drinks, fast food, etc would be taxed to generate more revenue.


    Universal health care with a public option.

    Wow, Bass..... I guess TWO points out of Six isn't that bad of a batting average. .333 would win the Major League Baseball batting crown in either the AL or NL most years.

    Unfortunately in the realm of politics and ideology .333 is a pretty SHITTY batting average.

    Your first two points were fine. I thought you might be on a roll there.

    Your third point is straight out Socialist in nature. It is the role of business to create profit for itself, not to be looking out for anything else. Caveat Emptor.

    Your fourth point is no better.... The proper idea is the total removal of all social welfare programs at the Federal level since they are UnConstitutional on their face.

    Your tax point started out good, until I noticed that it doesn't remove shelters from the poor fucks who already don't pay anything into the system. They need to start stepping up and paying their fair share too. Sin taxes don't work. Only the outright banishment of products like those work. If you want to make a case for that (as I will for cigaretts and alcohol), go for it.

    Lastly, Universal healthcare is a non-starter to any True Conservative. Always has been and always will be.

    Funny: that sounds exactly like liberalism.
