    Warren doesn't bother me, in fact I agree with on all these too big to fail corporations, banks, firms need to be broken up so next time the government doesn't have to bail them out. No business should be that big, if a private firm, company, corporation fails, it fails and let them go bankrupt. Besides, Warren represents Mass and I expect a flaming liberal to represent them. She is a good fit for Mass. But she wouldn't be for Georgia, just like Chambliss or Isakson wouldn't fit into the political climate of MASS.
    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.

    Re: 2016 Republican Primary

    Am I noticing a bit of populism there??
    You must have picked that up from your time in Missouri..
    Warren's defeat of Brown was a BFD..

    Seems every day we're having a GOP "state" legislature going off the reservation..
    The federal GOPees still seem to have their gag order .

    Common sense with guns is let everyone have a gun and to try not to restrict it. Remember, Hitler said that the easiest way to conquer a nation is to first disarm it's citizens.

    i will never understand this party of "no" stuff.....the congress is not suppose to yield to the president , on anything he wants.

    the congress, is suppose to have slow, deliberated debates on legislation, and that legislation is suppose to be int he interest of the people.... and the interest of the states.

    legislation was never intended to fly through congress without being read....."because people thinks it the right thing to do"
    I totally agree. But some people believe once a president is elected, he should get everything he wants. I don't. Congress is suppose to be a co-equal branch of government, the members of congress who happen to be of the president's party aren't suppose to be part of the administration. Congress needs to be a check on the presidents power and keep him on the straight and narrow. Not abet him and promote him into an imperial presidency.

    Populism? I don't know, all I do know if someone is a senator they should represent the state they are from first and not their political party whom they happen to be a member of. I can live with that. I expected Warren to beat Brown, to me it wasn't a big deal.

    When does the good of the Nation become more paramount than a single state??
    Surely Senators have gone against their home states based on privy intel..
    Not saying that PPACA is privy intel..
    What do you make of the hysterical fear the GOP has over ACA ?

    I would be happy if "ANY" legislation moved through both chambers..
    Too bad the House of NO refused bi-cameral conferences this past year .
    the less Legislation......... the better

    we have seen, that when congress no matter which party controls it, ...[government grows]

    laws curtail people's behavior,.......... if all congress does is create law on top of law,...then what happens to liberty?......it shrinks, until there is none.
