8. OF, BY and FOR the people

Government FOR the people -

The government will govern in a way that is beneficial to all the people of America.

Elected officials will not be swayed to benefit special interest groups
Elected officials will govern in a way that is balanced and takes into consideration the wishes of all the people.

If 50% want to be progressive and 50% want to be conservative we should have rules and laws that consider both halves of the country

Gee, with health care we seem t be able to do just that! We provide heath care that allows the concerns of all people to be considered. If you want to partake in certain offerings of your health care package - you certainly can. The problem comes when one group trys to say that "I don't want to use all the offerings and I don't think anyone else should either." Sorry folks - you get to choose how to live your own lives but you don't get to choose how I run mine.

I pick my church
I pick my house
I pick my car
I pick my food and meals
I pick my own cloths

If you don't get to make your own choices and someone else makes them for you then we just have communism. That's not what wer're about as a country.

I will support your ability to choose your lifestyle
But I will fuck you up if you try to choose mine, too!

This year the teabaggers get voted into obscurity.
Let's be reasonable: I 'll leave you alone and you leave me alone!
