"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
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.
I was simply pointing out that the Republican Party and the Tea Party do support things that some consider to be liberal policies. Sometimes the Republicans and the Tea Party get accused of being radicals. My response is: That's only in their speech not their actions.
However, that still doesn't prove anything, and for almost the exact same reason he gave. What a bill/resolution/whatever says in the title, doesn't automatically reflect what is in the contents. After all look at the "Affordable" Care Act.
Way too much corruption in the current welfare system. I'd model a new one after the Mormon welfare system. Basically turn it into workfare for able bodied people where they work in self sustained orchards, farms, canneries, clothing factories, distribution of the goods, etc and are not paid in cash or a blank check, but the commodities the welfare system produces. Ask people to fast one day a month and donate the cost of two meals or any else they want to give to the welfare program. Maybe only 10% of people will do it but it would help in funding. Have volunteer instructors to donate their time for drug counseling, mental illness issues, and job training/employment. Create a virtual university on steroids where everyone can download in video game type fashion virtual courses on pretty much anything for the price of an i-tune(subsidized for those on welfare) so that people can quickly attain the skills needed for the jobs in the economy(this will allow for the elimination of the expensive student grants). Prison system should be integrated into this welfare system also. Instead of taxpayers paying civilians to do such things as road work prisoner road crews and natural disasters clean up crews should be set up. Not chain gang style but in a dignified way where both tax payers benefit and it helps rehabilitate prisoners.
