Why don't the people who don't like the FUNDAMENTAL CHANGES that are coming to America find another country that better suits them?

I think most of them would really enjoy Iran.

They're big fans of conservative/religious fundamentalism there.

Newsflash for the left-behinds and perpetually-fearful: America isn't just your country - you're sharing it with roughly half of the rest of the population. Every society has to change, to evolve in order to meet its ever-changing needs. The odds-and-ends many of you are nit-picking about started "changing" under your Lord and Savior, Ronald Reagan, so be sure to direct some venom at him - when you're not too busy hating the President, poor people, homosexuals, and minorities.

Try some historical perspective: For every sweeping change that helped to ensure equal rights for minorities, the working class, and women, there has been a conservative movement diametrically opposed to it. How'd that work out for the conservatives of those time-periods? Think about it.

Yeah, the answers are slanted, but hey - if you don't like it, feel free to find another anti-Muslim, anti-Obama, anti-minority, anti-civil rights, anti-human right-wing circle jerk to infest.

    "CHANGE!" Fundament Changes have been changing our hard earned way of life, and I do not like what I see. If those Fundamental Changes you mention so blythely don't bother you, well they do me, and if YOU don't like my or others opinions, who are concerned, I suggest you migrate to another Country your own self, one that already has the kind of Government you are so hep on acquiring and shoving down our throats. CHANGE! Change Countries....that is my advice to you!

    Jesus is all about change. He had open arms for anyone who would embrace Him. And the free gift of salvation. Maybe its the FREE part that scares those who are against change, if they can't sell it and make a profit from it, they don't want it.

    They want to cut taxes without knowing that the current tax system provides the lowest overall tax rates since 1932.
    How about just cutting out the loopholes for the wealthy and large corporations and watch the jobs appear and the economy grow.

    what about enforcing our immigration laws?.Americans have to compete for jobs against people that shouldn't be here!. In addition,the Bretton Woods 2 agreement given to us by Nixon in the early seventies took us off the gold backed US currency and sent manufacturing overseas by intent. All of our problems are caused by our tyrannical government. I will provide you with a link to some very good information which will take a few days to go over but think it may just give you answers as to why we are in the hole our government has dug. seek the truth or remain a victim - Technotrucker

    -rolls eyes-

    I asked a simple question. A very simple question. You're complicating and derailing it into something much larger about the government as a whole. Which was NOT what I was asking. Whether it's the illegals, or the huge debt, or whatnot and whatnot, I'm asking a simple question: when the able-bodied are out of jobs, and are looking for jobs, independent of other contributing issues, do you support giving them welfare to stay afloat while they try to get back on their feet?

    It is not the governments place to supply you with anything.We,as Americans according to our founding documents have the right to life,liberty,and the pursuit of happiness. No guarantees to equal results. It is up to your local community,church,family,etc to help people in need!. Grow up with your rolling of eyes,just because you or any one else exists should in no way incur a debt on me unless I choose to help someone,which I do and have in the past.

    Its because of our free trade with countries that have very low wages. We can't compete and the manufacturing goes there. we need some Tariff's to even up the odds and allow us to compete in our own country. You can only stay a consumer so long til the money runs out.. We need jobs here to continue being consumers and just giving money away to get people to buy more is ridiculous.
    Watch this if you want to see why.

    Perhaps this is news for you, tlee, but there are not enough jobs for every able-bodied person. Therefore, it is IMPOSSIBLE for all of them to find work, no matter how hard they try. Should they be left to depend on the kindness of strangers or starve?

    Please focus on this specific issue. Enforcing our immigration laws, or spending hundreds of billions of dollars to create an impassible border, will not provide jobs for all able-bodied citizens. What is your solution to THIS problem?
  • tlee Kaleoku... 2011/10/29 07:25:54

    Bretton Woods agreement 2 is why manufacturing left this country to a large degree!. Charity should be local;family,church etc,not through government and yes,kindness from people like me. Don't need a fence,just enforce the laws we have on the companies that hire illegals. Maybe we could adopt Mexico's immigration policies!. They are truly some warm-hearted souls down there!.

    I asked "Should they be left to depend on the kindness of strangers or starve?" But you seem to evade a direct answer by mentioning manufacturing and illegals.

    By reading between the lines, I conclude that your answer is "Yes, they should be left to depend on the kindness of strangers or starve."

    Is this correct? Please answer DIRECTLY!

    yes and am not evading anything.you interjected in another conversation I was engaged in. I don't need a government stooge to force me to "help" others.I am about doing what I can,when I can,and how with a cheerful heart than by force at the end of a gun. As for them starving,I think you are being disingenuous. seems it is about emotion more than intelligence.

    Oh yes,and welfare has only exacerbated the problem and has done nothing to fix it. Government is too big to care about you or me but I choose to acknowledge that,what is your excuse?. They won't starve if we lived within our means!.Wars, foreign aid, occupation by illegals and trade agreements have killed this REPUBLIC,and by design. Left and Right is BS!.

    Do you think they can do that with less government?
    We can have less government if we quit paying for abortions.
    No one can make them stop getting them, but why should the government pay for them?
    What else did you have in mind?

    The government doesn't pay for them. Get your facts first. The government isn't ALLOWED to pay for abortions.

    As for what I had in mind-- gay marriage.

    So you say. But I don't believe they keep the money separated for abortions. If the government gives money to organizations (like Planned Parenthood) that provide abortions, it is in effect paying for abortions.

    Marriage (gay or otherwise) is not your private life, but your public life. You can have sex with anyone (unless you pay for it) without the government interfering.

    How so?

    The government gives money to Planned Parenthood for different services that have to do with womens' health. Like breast cancer screenings, prevention of cervical cancer, Pap and HIV tests, urinary tract and vaginal infections... that's where all the money's going.

    They're not allowed to pay a single cent for abortions (which come from private donations).

    Marriage is your private life. It affects your ability to have, raise, and care for a family. It's not just about sex, it's about a person's ability to make a personal and private choice with their partner, and being told they can't because other people don't like the idea. It's the government interfering by enacting laws against certain people.
  • Dave Sa... Yuki ~ ... 2011/10/27 16:10:56

    Getting married is not private, but a matter of public record.

    Being born is a matter of public record, but it doesn't mean your every move after you leave the hospital is public record. Similarly, just because being married is on public record doesn't mean that what happens in a marriage isn't private.

    But sure, have it your way-- let's assume you're right. But it is a PERSONAL thing, and the government still feels the need to interfere in peoples' PERSONAL lives.
  • Dave Sa... Yuki ~ ... 2011/10/27 22:26:26

    We were discussing getting married not what you do before or after you get married.

    Why do I get the feeling that everything would be a personal thing if you could have it that way?
  • Yuki ~ ... Dave Sa... 2011/10/27 23:08:47
    Yuki ~ ♦Lion King of PHÆT♦

    Ah, but it is what you do after you are married that matters-- and is personal. Getting married on public record is impersonal, but what you do with your marriage is very personal. And it is what you do with your marriage that is most important to those who seek to get married.

    After all, I highly doubt the majority of people who get married merely do it so that if someone looks them up on public record, their name is neatly slotted with everyone else's.

    -shrugs- I think that what people choose to do with their lives is a very personal decision for them. Because that's simply what it is. Do you deny that?
  • Dave Sa... Yuki ~ ... 2011/10/28 22:09:55

    Gay marriage isn't really marriage. They have to tack the word "Gay" on it to make it seem like it is.

    Gay sex is against God's laws, yet it is allowed in most places anyway, but it should not be legalized.
