What's your political view and are the leaders you voted for meeting your expectations?

Awesome, I will read it. :)
Central Planning, not Mental planning*
I think I agree with you for the most part. I liked Bush (43)'s leadership and reaction to 9/11.
I agree that the Patriot Act are intrusive to our freedoms. One of my quotes from Ben Franklin covers this. The hub is: http://phtech.hubpages.com/hub/Top-25-Founding-Fat... It's the first quote if you read it.
Awesome points. It's unfortunate that we can't voice our opinions anymore.
Great points. I'll read your hub for sure.
So if our US legislature is not "morality based", then what is its basis? Immorality?
CS:illogical& silly query. The law is based on logic, equality, justice- under the law, not under religious beliefs.Crimes against humanity,or against 1 another R matters of law, not religious morality.know the difference
A sense of justice in the human heart comes from our Creator God. Without His law written in our hearts and without the conscience He has given us, you will have no moral society. A crime against humanity is so because God shows you it is.
cs: i understand ur faith & admire it. but knowing the difference between right & wrong is innate in humans. Intellect is a gift of evolution & prudence is logical deduction. w/o religion we would still B in the same place we R today. Sa
The trouble is, evolution hasn't a shred of evidence to support it's claims. It is an attempt to escape the innate knowledge that we have a Creator. The US was different from other countries because it was founded on Biblical principles.
cs:the U.S. was founded on principles of freedom.Science proves evolution.God created that evolutionary process. UR views R 2 narrow as dictated by religion.God is wiser than man's version of him.
d.williams, If it is inherent, then why do we need to teach our children the difference between the two? And, yes, we Conservative want dirty air and water for us and our children...really?
M.A.: only the blind insist on teaching their children the difference between the 2. If some insist on living in a fantasy world, its ok with me. & to UR last ?: yes. GOP resists ALL protections to planet,air,water&women & more.
d.w., you don't teach your kids right from wrong? You allow then to decide themselves? What specific policy by a Conservative (GOP is not as a whole), is both detrimental to the air/water and not able to be addressed on the State and local level?
MA: silly question- evolution vs creationism does not fit there. No policy should be limited to a state. You can't have clean air/water/etc in one state with all the rest polluted. space 2 limited to address other issues here.H.R. bills favor 1%.
I think conservatives need another chance. Just because there are some corrupt congressmen in Washington doesn't mean we believe in ruining the environment nor want it to happen.
ph: i agree. there are bad apples on both sides of the isle, unfortunately the bad ones dominate the news. We should be looking for the good in people not the bad, but this is hard when it comes to politicians who sell out the people for profit
Thanks for the input. You have some great views.
I don't see leaning right as a problem. I respect your views though and I'm glad no one on this post has picked a fight. Proof that liberals and conservatives can exist together and not kill each other?
What do you think the greatest strengths, from a specific policy point, are found in the progressive liberal movement to increase liberty and prosperity for the individual citizen?
Mitch, I think the greatest strengths in the progressive liberal movement are policies of social justice and environmentalism which work toward curbing oligarchies in which money, thus power, is concentrated in the hands of a few
Billie, the question was what Specific Policy? Not a platitude, but a specific policy that is promoted by the left...that is good for personal liberty and prosperity...cite the specific law or bill and how it directly affects we the people. And how t
M.Respectfully, I read your ques 3 times.The subject of your question is "the greatest strengths". If you had asked "What specific policies enacted by the progressive liberals in Congress increase liberty and prosperity, I would have answered THAT.
Billie, my exact posted question was "What do you think the greatest strengths, from a SPECIFIC POLICY POINT, are found in the progressive liberal movement to increase liberty and prosperity for the individual citizen?"
no room here, but I'll tell you 1 Federal Funded prog. I worked for:TRIO Student Support Serv -serves 1st generation, low income, special needs students in getting degrees.Our students who were destined for welfare NOW r business admin. nurses,etc.
That could be done in the private sector or on a local and State level. Also, where in the Constitution does the federal government get the power and authority to run such a program? Which enumerated power specifically and around the 10th Amendment?
M-I see the world, govt in a whole different way than you. I'm 68. I always felt this way; my mother brought me up this way. My father served in WWII, my father-in-law on the beaches in Normandy,my husband in Vietnam.Proud of my view.We just disagree
It is your right to disagree. But, not to your own "facts". The Constitution is specific on this, even though it's been ignored. There is no constitutional authority to take from one person and give to another. None.
M, I'll close with this: Respectfully. When I left SSS, I started my own educational software and tutoring company. I create online learning games. I tutor ESL, deaf, and other students. I make about $2000 a year. I'm private sector. Over and out!
I commend you on both your business endeavor and your willingness to give back, it's what makes America great. It has nothing to do with the point about Constitutionality, but I'll assume you don't want to discuss that. :)
