Look at all the do gooders with all the fitness and discipline requirements that restrict their freedom!
    On the bright side, this is probably the first time I've ever seen someone on this board that's a self-described fascist.

    If you think I'm a fascist just show's how intelligent your discerning skills are.

    First of all, remove the apostrophe.

    Second - your state-first mentality is textbook fascism. I figure that you'll soon want to be a little more statist with your corporatism, and then you'll be full Benito.

    Meh, he'll find some other dragon to slay with legislative power.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    The apostrophe was a mistype spelling nazi. Second you do not know me or my positions well enough to make your absurd comment that I'm a fascist. Let's see my state first mentality, I support an amendment that protects economic freedom by limiting the rates of income tax, support of balance budget amendment, support of term limits of one term in executive and legislative branch, distrust of anyone seeking power. How does me wanting 0% corporate rate, o% capital gains tax on ipo, elimination of double taxation like estate and property tax fit your fascist conclusion. I support the 2nd amendment as well as the rest of them, strong supporter of constitution. Do I think freedom of speech means you can yell fire in theater, no. but that doesn't make me a fascist. That I think single payer health insurance is smart doesn't make m a fascist. Support of epa, etc. Only in the minds of libertarians.

    Yes I didn't realize there was no need for an apostrophe. Thank you so much for being anal enough to point it out.

    That depends on how hot it is outside and why did you pick 32oz if anything over 16 was banned?

    I didn't say anything about an apostrophe. If you're going to make fun of somebody's intelligence, at least use proper grammar.

But the policies will still raise gov. revenue and lower overall demand than current policies because the majority will go legal and not risk prison time. Also my prison policy, which I won't go into detail on, would make prisons basically free to taxpayers. Basically replaces a lot of the civilian road workers, create disaster relief cleanup crews, etc.
    I like that prison policy. Down here in Georgia we still have county prisoners go out and police the highways and roads. But every so often, the ACLU or some other group will try to get the county to stop it. I guess they think it is beneath the prisoners dignity to do police call. some revenue is always better than none
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
