THE ECONOMY, CAPITALISM, FREE ENTERPRISE, & FREEDOM

GOD'S GIFT IS WORK, CHERISH IT

I believe that man is denied a rich, personal reward from God when he is not able to express himself  through the enjoyment of his work. I am, of course, not saying that everything we do must be self pleasing and just hard work. I am saying is that when a person works and is rightfully compensated for that work through a fair wage or other compensation, they also obtain a sense of satisfaction of having a true net worth.  That feeling of pride coming from being able to sustain themselves, their family and, if they so desire, others. When the government steals this satisfaction by weighing him down with welfare and then props him up with a small pittance that he does not earn, it robs the soul of that individual. This is not good. I would wager a tidy sum that no child has ever said " I want to be the welfare king/queen of my country, living off of other peoples work if he/she were asked of their aspirations . Today we are so focused on helping people, I believe we are harming more than helping. We, as a society must help those that need help. And not forget also that the Lord helps those who help themselves. As a society, we are obligated to help the less fortunate and Americans have always wanted to. However, we must recognize that too much giving leads to dependency and it can rob the recipient the opportunity of enjoying a good work ethic or having a sense of pride in a job well done. The government does NOT create work nor value by and large. It's largess and weight upon society actually hurts free enterprise and capitalism. The taxes required to support the "entitlements" of our governments promises to us Americans is overbearing, brutal and reminiscent of the Old Testament Rulers and kingdoms heavy demands on the people centuries ago. The handouts promised and dolled out are  unrealistic, unsustainable and obscene. Welfare steals freedom, pride, and reward. I know of no government program anymore that requires a return to self sufficiency. It seems that our ability to fend for ourselves is being buried under preposterous laws, taxes, and overbearing regulations.  Government should have no place in the control of the marketplace. Government needs to butt out of handling the availability of money or the setting of wages for workers. Governments should reasonably get out of the way of freedom and entreprenuers. This is what I believe in my heart.


Immigration

Our  government is encouraging those who have invaded our country and it acts as if it was we, the American population, that are the problem and that we  need change and accept the illegals transgressions !.. I do not care what the Federal government , nor the bureaucrats say , we are a nation of laws and borders and these NEED TO BE RESPECTED.             SECURE OUR BORDERS FIRST than we can talk about the dream act, birther babies,immigrant welfare, and education !

Education

is just giving our future (our children) the tools to succeed and we are failing them  We used to require Latin, Greek, French, or German for one year prior to graduation from high school, while today in our society remedial English is a required college course and the kids need it. It is an American embarrassment  that we have failed as we teach social bull crap and babysit while not educating our children. WE can do better and I want to help the Teachers by fighting the rules that bind their ability such as Common Core and Federal intervention.  We have 227 school districts and only 15 counties, imagine if we got rid of the duplication, redundancy and waste and gave the 100s  of  millions dollars saved to the classrooms and teachers.  We are burying our college students with debt and we should abolish a third or so of the social engineering electives required for degrees and allow the kids to graduate with degrees that are in the field of their dreams without the debt of their lives. This is achievable..

2nd Amendment

My God given right to protect myself, my family, my friends, my country, and others as needed !  I will always fight to allow someone to be able to defend themselves or their loved one.. 

Social Issues

I am a PRO-LIFE, CONSERVATIVE.  I am pro-life at birth and death. I believe that if you were born with the equipment of a male...you are a male as long as you are with that equipment.  I respect that those in the gay community want to keep me and government out of their bedrooms and I believe we should stay out of them but I would oppose those that want me to glorify their position and move their agenda outside into the community.
