Gary, what we really need is a constitutional convention to create an amendment that says if you are, or ever have been, a member of the Bar Associations you can not be a member of a legislative body.

Good government is easy. People get in the way. Freedom is easy. People get in the way.
America has not become what it is because it is easy. People get in the way.
People are all trying to make an improvement. How that is accomplished is the difficult part. Industry needing the ability to hurt others as a means of growth is a disgusting disease.
Being armed is fine, making drone strikes on families is not. Quantity to quality ratio matters when the infliction of violence is concerned.
Building a better America means protecting, producing, distributing, saving, and converting into stable resource all of our resources. People get in the way.

I don't know if this country can handle the truth. The two party system serves only the interests of the power elite. Truth like Gary's is dangerous, but refreshing.

If we are going to war for any reason other than defending ourselves, it should be for conquest. Lending aid to an ally is not the same as "our war". Lending aid needs to be described as any other form of monetary load. There should be an amount of aid described before it is given. There should be a projection of what success looks like & what amount of failure is acceptable (attrition numbers). There should be a reciprocal treaty (looking at you France) and conquest if it is broken.

Going to Iraq to depose a leader should have ended in the conquest of Iraq. We should not have to ask for help in attacking an enemy, just a get out of the way agreement.

It was pointing out that we should be spending money here fixing our cities, instead of rebuilding our enemies on the other side of the globe.

Wasn't it Congress who created the TSA?
Massive airport security lines are creating pressure for Congress to do something.

It's like a couple of years ago when Congress was upset that the NSA was doing what it was told to do by congressional act (Patriot Act)

"Johnson himself is highly unconventional. Often clad in jeans and running shoes, as he was Monday, he is an Ironman triathlete who has climbed Mount Everest." So...What's unconventional about jeans and running shoes?

Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump are all but assured a US presidential showdown in November, but a third-party candidate -- Libertarian G...

Introduction
Governor Johnson, who has been referred to as the ‘most fiscally conservative Governor’ in the country, was the Republican Governor of New Mexico from 1994-2003. A successful businessman before running for Governor of New Mexico in 1994, Gary Johnson started a door-to-door handyman business to help pay his way through college. Twenty years later, he had grown that business into one of the largest construction companies in New Mexico, with more than 1,000 employees. Not surprisingly, Governor Johnson brings a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, believing that public policy decisions should be based on costs and benefits rather than strict ideology.

Johnson is best known for his veto record, having vetoed more than 750 bills during his time in office -- more than all other governors combined. His use of the veto pen has since earned him the nickname “Governor Veto.” He cut taxes 14 times while never raising them. When he left office, New Mexico was one of only four states in the country with a balanced budget. Term-limited, Johnson retired from public office in 2003.

An avid skier, adventurer, and bicyclist, he has scaled the highest peak on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest. In the 2012 presidential election, Johnson placed third and garnered more votes than any other Libertarian candidate in history. Johnson was raised Lutheran. He has two grown children, a daughter Seah and a son Erik, and currently resides in a house he built himself in Taos, New Mexico
Bragging rights
I have two great kids: my son, Erik, and daughter, Seah, who both help out with the campaign. I've completed over 30 triathlons, competed in the Hawaii Iron Man competition, and have summitted four of the world's highest peaks, including Mt. Everest. As Governor of New Mexico, I vetoed about as many bills as the other 49 Governors--combined. I was one of only 4 Governors in the country to leave my state with a balanced budget, and I created that surplus while cutting taxes 14 times. A recent National Review report showed that out of all the Governors running for the Republican presidential nomination this year, job growth was highest under my watch than anyone else's.
