Pat Buchanan - "You're not going to get back the middle class when you're constantly appeasing big business -- when folks are losing their jobs because of these trade deals, these masses of imports, these open borders, and the wars we've gotten into. I think the whole country is rejecting that," Buchanan told TheDC.

Buchanan strongly rebuked policies that have favored opening up America's market to foreign goods and have encouraged businesses to outsource jobs to other countries and recruit low-skilled immigrant workers to come to the United States -- policies that have been favored by the big business-wing of the party.

"In the first decade of the 21st century, we lost six million manufacturing jobs and 55,000 factories," Buchanan listed off as the damage he says have been done by these policies. "Do any of these people have an idea why that's happening?" read more

Shellmyer, a 78-year-old city councilman for the small town of Washington, Iowa, was the sole local politician to vote against the department of 12 police officers getting the free MRAP -- short for mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle -- from the Defense Department three months ago. Washington is one of hundreds of towns and cities to get a recycled MRAP from the Pentagon over the past year and a half.

"Here's the thing," Shellmyer says. "Washington, Iowa, has 8,000 people. We have an MRAP now. We have a SWAT team. We have [police] dogs, and we have a SWAT team transportation vehicle that's not armored."

The city councilman began to think: "Goodness, this is overkill." read more

Britain's healthcare has been lauded as the best out of 11 of the world's wealthiest countries, following a far-reaching study by a US-based foundation. In a report entitled "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall," the quality, efficiency, cost and performance of the US health system was compared to Canada and nine other countries in Europe and Australasia. Conducted by The Commonwealth Fund, the report ranks the UK first overall, scoring it highly for its quality of care, efficiency and low cost at the point of service, with Switzerland coming an overall second. It says that despite being the most expensive health care system in the world, the US continually underachieves "on most dimensions of performance." read more

According to Osama Bin Laden the real catalyst for 9-11 was USA support for Israel in the Palestinian issue.

The Israelis obviously continue to purposely suck the USA into their web of creating Muslim hatred. Killing children has a way of creating hatred. Yet we taxpayers in the USA are forced by our corrupt owned politicians to continue to subsidize Israel's actions. How many trillions has all of this absurd pandering to Israel cost our USA children and succeeding generations?

This is an insightful link that gives an objective perspective on the creation of Israel. Is it irrefutable? No but neither is the information we hear from the propaganda machine that has created this mess and involved the USA.

I can't help but think that a time in America may soon come when our right of free speech and freedom of thought outside of the establishment line, will soon be claimed as hate thought or political incorrectness and punishable by imprisonment or worse. Think not, then you need to review from whence we came in society to where we are.

These hate laws are coyly intended as a pathway to muzzle speech or thought that is inconvenient to our masters, just as such laws existed under other tyrants. Tyranny is a slow process that eliminates freedom one drip at a time. PC is such a process.
