I would cut the FG down to size and eliminate any agency of it that was not in compliance with the 10th Amendment.

"VA hospitals are a mess, not because of unions but because Congress is too cheap to supply soldiers..., nor proper medical care for veterans, even though such care was part of their contract for enlistment. They..cut needed services, and raid the Social Security trust fund to cover their incompetence. StrongAxe on 8/16/16"
My thoughts exactly. They can't balance the budget due to their gorging of it with their unwarranted, unregulated, unexplained expenditures that have nothing to do with the needs of the american people. Although the GAO was supposedly put in place in 1921 to investigate matters relating the receipt, disbursement, and application of public funds, there has been very little evidence of that.
---joseph on 8/16/16


Stronage, you would be alive with better CARE and plans. Policies across States' line you can PICK from that you want instead of the Government TELLING you what you will receive. A BIG DIFFERENCE!

//VA hospitals are a mess, not because of unions but because Congress is too cheap---StrongAxe

WRONG, Government CAN'T RUN A BUSINESS. (Military isn't a business). Healthcare is a BUSINESS.

I work at the VA. Congress gives each VA hospital at least twice the amount of money than private hospital's budget. But we give less quality of care per patient than private hospitals.

WHY? The Union.

It is harder to fire a wrongful nurse or doctor.
A federal nurse get about 20% MORE money and works LESS for the same pay.

Nicole_Lacey:

Due to Obamacare, more Americans have health insurance than ever. Without Obamacare when I was diagnosed with cancer, I would be dead right now.

Nicole, why do you want me dead?

The Bible says "a worker is worthy of his hire". VA hospitals are a mess, not because of unions but because Congress is too cheap to supply soldiers (Iraq war mothers bought flak jackets for sons as the Army couldn't afford to), nor proper medical care for veterans, even though such care was part of their contract for enlistment. They can't balance a budget, and cut needed services, and raid the Social Security trust fund to cover their incompetence.

Leon: What happened? You said you were going to play nice, but you are not. Why? I may have called your beloved Traitor-in-Chief some names, but I have not called you names.

Every one of your left-wing kooks running our country gave an oath to uphold our Constitution, but they instead use it for toilet paper. They are lawless criminals and you know it. The end result of such lawlessness is anarchy, and we are beginning to see the initial stages of it.

What makes you think you will be spared in the new Communist Utopia? Look at Argentina and Venezuela - its coming here.



Nicole: I'll vote for you!


---Jerry6593 on 8/16/16




Nicole in charge of Health and Human Services.---john9346 on 8/14/16

I ACCEPT!

Goodbye to Obamacare/Affordable Health Care - JOKE

Fix the VA by getting rid of the Union.
After the Union we would take care of the Veterans 1st, 2nd and 3rd instead of the Staff and their interest. Staff 4th.

Determine treat and care to the patient based on health condition not by age.

Cap lawsuits rewards.
Which would cut unnecessary treatments (ordered only to prevent lawsuits)

john9346:

Walmart hires people willing to work. They STILL pay so little that more than half need social assistance. Guaranteeing employment will not do this, unless you ALSO increase minimum wage, work hours, and grant certain minimum necessary benefits like job security, sick leave, health insurance, etc.

Simply, I would work to have implemented Fiscal Responsible Educational Programs in preK, Elementary Schools, Colleges, and universities.

Education will NOT HELP those who are emotionally immature, or mentally ill. How do you help THEM?

Well, I do tend to look at things from a legal perspective, so that actually makes sense! :)

Strongaxe,

"Right to employment will not change this. If a company's only openings are in Pakistan, it won't help you unless you can afford a ticket there."

But you can bring them back simply by creating an environmet country that welcomes, empowers, educate, and emphasizes the right/duty that people want to work.

"Without social security, people who aren't fiscally responsible math whizzes will starve and go poor. How do you fix THAT?"

You wrote: All of the "laws" I mentioned are unconstitutional, and hence illegal. POTUS is a criminal dictator who swore to uphold the Constitution, but who uses it for toilet paper.

Any unconstitutional laws can be easily repealed by challenging them in court, and having them struck down by appeals courts, or, finally and complely, by the Supreme Court - who has the final say on what is unconstitutional or not.

As far the POTUS being a criminal, again, there is a procedure for dealing with that. Impeachment. The Republican Senate hates Obama, and if there were anything they could legitimately nail him on, they would be only too happy to try, like they tried with Clinton before.
---StrongAxe on 8/14/16


Jeery: "Unconstitutional" & "illegal"? According to who, you?

What's with you "government shrinkies" who always want to get back (go backwards in time)? That's not the future of America!

Right-minded Americans know the problem isn't really so much with government agencies. It's deeply rooted in the overall inefficiencies of the current "outlaw gang" in the U.S. HOR. They've intentionally failed to do their constitutionally sworn jobs & have held "we the people" hostage during 8 years of childish shenanigans. But, that's changing this Fall. Many GOP devils will be voted out, thanks to their wild donkey, Trump. By the way, you sound just like that "rump". smh

No. The AMERICAN PEOPLE elected the president, just like they elected conservative Congress.

I am a moderate - liberal in some areas, conservative in others. By putting people into pigeonholes and deducing their beliefs based entirely on those pigeonholes, you don't do them justice.

I would seek to repeal most laws...

Making and repealing of laws is the business of Congress, not the President. The ONLY thing he can do is say "I don't think so." (veto).

I would cut the FG down to size and eliminate any agency of it that was not in compliance with the 10th Amendment. In short, I would remove the FG boot of tyranny from the neck of the American People.

Mark Axe: "The ones in the Constution [sic] and Declaration of Independence etc. - the idea that all people have inalienable rights that don't exist at the whim of despot."

You sound like a conservative! But you liberals have elected a despot who rules by his whim (pen and phone).


If I were elected President, I would seek to repeal most laws enacted by the "progressive" left-wing Federal Government (FG) over the last 100 years. I would cut the FG down to size and eliminate any agency of it that was not in compliance with the 10th Amendment. In short, I would remove the FG boot of tyranny from the neck of the American People.

//The employees and the executives are equally paid.//

REALLY? Are you a Communist?

Why did the Executive have to go to College for an average of 7 years to be paid the SAME for an employee who did study past high school?

Ambition is essential.

//These companies moved overseas becuase they can pay workers there a buck an hour versus 20 an hour here//

True, but bread doesn't cost a buck but 5 cents.

The average house doesn't cost $100,000 but $10,000 (Nice homes for $10,000)

This the reason Retired People are ALSO MOVE OVERSEAS with their pension to live like a KING.
$1000.00 a month in South America gives you a Maid, Cook and for some a Nanny.

john9346:

Publicly-traded companies have fiduciary responsibilities to, in order, shareholders, customers, and employees. If outsourcing can improve profits, they MUST do it for the shareholders. Who cares if that's bad for employees or America? The law doesn't require those to be a priority.

Self-centered behavior in humans is sociopathy. The law requires corporations to be sociopaths, and the results should not surprise us.

Right to employment will not change this. If a company's only openings are in Pakistan, it won't help you unless you can afford a ticket there.

"Social Security will NOT be around when I turn 62." If it is not, than America has defrauded every American that has been required to pay into it. It is classified as insurance, mandatory insurance, for every working American. Perhaps It has been abused (personally I have not been privileged to the programs auditing) but certainly not by the average American. Social security if it has been managed properly, and invested wisely, should have, and maintain a surplus. Social programs once intitiated by the government should have been placed into the budget of the federal government and paid for by the taxes mandated by the Federal government which was, supposedly, established of the people, for the people, all people.

Most people who paid into Social Security gets more (unless they die within 3 years of start date)then they paid into Social Security.

Look at your W2 form again.

I paid almost $6000 to SS last year. But, if I choose to collect SS at the age of 62, I am promised 2100 a month from SS. Which comes out to $25,000 a year.

I am 44 years ago. So far I paid at the most $42,000 to SS to date.

If I die at the age of 75, SS would have paid me $325,000.

Do you see WHY SSI is dying and dying fast?
It is a benefit after 3 years!

When they developed SS, they believed people would die at the age of 65 or 68 at most.
And they didn't want anyone to start collecting SS until the age of 65.

John 9346, I agree with you workers should be self-sufficient and independent, but there's a major and serious problem you are. Overlooking.

How are workers to do this when American jobs are constantly being moved to other countries.

Also, Corporate Executives are paid outrageous salaries, and profits are shared those on Wall Street, instead of being equally shared with the employees. This is CORPORATE GREED and the so called "TRICKLE DOWN EFFECT!

"Many would. Many can't."

Sir, not sure why you seem to double down on the "Negatives." Lets focus on the "Cans." and not the "Can Nots."

Not creating laws to rise people from dependency to independency is not loving your neighbor as yourself.

As a resident of Arizona, I don't want my tax dollars being wasted on an expensive and useless wall.

After WW1, France built the Magino Line to keep the Germans out, but they just walked around it. Unless a wall goes from coast to coast and doesn't have even a single breach in it, it's pretty much useless. Even then, it can't stop people who come here on legally on temporary visas, then decide to stay.

Eliminating the EPA allows disasters like Flint to happen - and children suffer the most.

If anyone tried to break in my house with me home I would start offensive tactics that is sure to stop them. Evil attacking people are no better than a wild attacking animal.

John 9346 said, "2. Brendan, if you and Basil had the opportunity to work as disabled individuals tell me would you?"

Absolutely. I would go back to American Express and work until they kicked the crutches out from underneath me to get me to retire. I loved that job.

This would in no way interfere with my monastic devotion.
---Monk_Brendan on 8/5/16


If I were elected, here is my list:

1. My first priority would be to strengthen the military.
2. Guard the border, giving dreamers benefit of the doubt.
3. Work to make English (American English) the official language, and to make sure that immigrants can read, write, and speak English.
4. Make sure that ALL LIVES MATTER, from natural conception to natural death.
5. Rebuild the infrastructure in all 50 states--rail, road, and waterway.
6. Through proper investment and giving, build up the economy. Raise the Bond rate to 1%, and adjust as necessary. Make EE bond payment time 15 years instead of 30.

Karen,

Ma'am, explain to us all, how is empowering men and women through employment to be Self-Sufficient, independent not dependent, and Self-Sustaining not living in reality??
---john9346 on 8/5/16


john9346:

I NEVER said that. Jesus said "the poor will be with you always" - no matter how much we help the poor, the work will never be finished. To believe it WILL, short of the Millenium, is an unrealistic utopian ideal.

much of this can and would change if America became a country where employment/working is a right.

How so? Walmart employees are ALREADY employed and working. Making employment a right will not help them.

Ask anyone who is poor, "If you could change, would you?"

Many would. Many can't. When health care budgets are cut, homeless increase dramatically because many just can't care for themselves.

Strongaxe,

Sir, lets be reasonable and rational mankind will do what it takes to be safe (Self Preservation) (God-given Instinct)

So, Jesus taught that we should just leave the poor, poor? Sorry, I hope this isn't really what you believe? (love your neighbor as yourself)

Strongaxe, you are right about Walmart Workers living in poverty, but much of this can and would change if America became a country where employment/working is a right.

The way it is now Big Businesses (greedy) companies can treat humanity in this way.

Ask anyone who is poor, "If you could change, would you?"

What do you think would be the response??

My 100 year old friend would be out caring for her yard if she could. She would be cooking her own meals and caring for herself IF SHE COULD. She would be working IF SHE COULD. Her husband was a pastor for over 60 years. They served the Lord well. Thank God she is still the bright and witty woman she has always been. She would definitely have something to say to John who does not live in reality.

john9346:

It depends on how expensive and reasonable the solution is. Would you be willing to spend $1000 out of your own personal income to build a wall, or put landmines on your lawn to deter burglars? The first is too expensive, the second unreasonable.

I wrote: This is an impossible Utopian ideal.
You wrote: Who told you this??

Jesus did, as I quoted in the very next line. If you don't agree, take it up wth him.

Just because someone is poor they don't have to remain poor.

When you have insufficient money to pay expenses, something has to give. Walmart workers are gainfully employed, but Walmart pays them so little that they NEED public assistance too.
---StrongAxe on 8/5/16


Strongaxe said,

"Have you asked them? How many citizens ACTUALLY want a wall? They are in the minority. Wasting the money of the majority who don't want one would be theft, no?"

Let me get this straight so a man will not pay to keep his wife and children safe from harm really??

"This is an impossible Utopian ideal."

Who told you this?? Just because someone is poor they don't have to remain poor. When the poor are empowered by employment then they will know and understand being poor is a choice and not a "Birthright."

People should be in control of their own health not the government.

Money Accounts should be assign to each one from birth to death.

Remember, I said, "If enough people are empowered by being gainfully employed there will be no need for Social-security, Food Stamps, Affordable Housing (Section 8), etc."

1. Karen, tell me, does your 100 Year Old Friend want to work or does she feel because she was told that she cant??

2. Brendan, if you and Basil had the opportunity to work as disabled individuals tell me would you.

There are many who are disabled on SSI who still have the ability, skills, and intelligence to still be gainfully employed to feed themselves and their family and friends.

This is an impossible Utopian ideal. JESUS HIMSELF said so - "the poor will be with you ALWAYS".

8. Republicans have been raging at Obamacare for years - with no plans for a replacement. For several years while it's gone and no replacement is ready, many people will die.

9-12. These all require constitutional amendments requiring 66% and 75% approval. Good luck with that!

Monk Brendan, I worked and payed into Social Security for over 40 years. Even though I was declared to be disabled, I continued to work and didn't receive Social Security until I retired.

Do you believe after all these years of paying into Social Security, I should not receive this benefit in return?

Should someone who never paid into Social Security receive more of a benefit than I do?
---Rob on 8/4/16


john9346....Social security is not an entitlement!!! I paid into that for 40+ years while I worked. What about my 100 year old friend who depends on social security for her living. You want her to go to work?

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

America isn't a theocracy. It's a democracy. The POTUS is not the Pastor in Chief since the U.S. is a plethora of religious beliefs. Nor is the POTUS Dictator in Chief with the power to do whatever he desires. For this reason, we have the U.S. Constitution which outlines a balance of power between the Legislative, Judiciary & Executive branches of government on behalf of "we the people".

God established (ordained) rule of government for our good. (Romans 13:1-5)
---Leon on 8/4/16


John 9346 said, "4. Remove people off Government Programs (Social-Security, Food Stamps, etc.)"

John, we get NO help from the government or the Church! I get a minimal amount from Social Security, as does Fr. Basil. I get a total of $18.00 from Food Stamps, and Basil gets $20.00. That is our sole support. If that were cut off, then what would happen to us? We still have to pay rent, utilities, insurance, etc, just like everyone else. We cannot work, as we are both disabled. If you removed SS, then we would die, and YOU would be responsible.
---Monk_Brendan on 8/4/16


Strongaxe,

In answering regarding 1 and 4 on my top priority when the citizens are empowered by employment they will be glad to contribute towards there safety (Building a wall, tunnel Blockages, and other alternatives.

If enough people are empowered by being gainfully employed there will be no need for Social-security, Food Stamps, Affordable Housing (Section 8), etc.

Once employment becomes a right for all and not a privilege for some laws will change and the Right-to-work States will end...

Would you like to be Vice President :-)
---john9346 on 8/4/16


Top priority . . . family. Possibly, each day have a family half hour with the nation at our dinner table. Ten minutes of sharing as family, talking about personal things. Ten minutes of encouraging changes in our personal lives as a nation. Ten minutes with a special guest speaking on a special interest topic.

Have a polling system by which voters can vote on issues, as Congress brings them up. And Congress must do what the voters vote and have payed Congress to do.

pray to submit in detail to God guiding

7. Abolish the Department of Education (Let each state decide.)

8. Repeal Obama Care (Let each state decide.)

9. Repeal Roe V Wade, and the SameSex Marriage Law.

10. Limit the power of the Supreme Court.

11. Limit the term of each Supreme Court Justice to 8 years to be voted on by the citizens like the presidency.

12. Limit how many times a senator or representative can be reelected.

john9346:

1. How would you pay for it? Walls don't end drug smuggling - smugglers just build tunnels. Alien smugglers will build them too.

4. Many rely on food stamps to survive. What should they do? Starve? We all pay into social security. It would be fraud to take money from people for years promising they would get some back at retirement, then say "sorry, not for you".

6. When the president accepts his office, he swears to uphold and defend the constitution. The reason right-to-work states exist is that employment laws are state responsibilities, not federal ones. The federal government has no jurisdiction there. It would be impossible under the constitution for the president to take any action on #6.
---StrongAxe on 8/3/16


Rob asked, "If you were elected President of the United States, what would be your AGENDA and your TOP PRIORITY?"

I really like this question...

1. Build a wall to end "Illegal." Immigration and everything associated with it (Sanctuary Cities, etc.)

2. Rebuild the military.

3. Unite the races especially (Black and White)

4. Remove people off Government Programs (Social-Security, Food Stamps, etc.)

5. Create jobs and make hiring a right for all and not a privilege for some...

6. EndRight-to-Work States.

5 and 6 will be my top priority in the first 100 days inoffice...
