As most of you know, I read a lot of political blogs, and today I wanted to put in my 2 cents worth.
I think the Republicans will take back the Congress and Senate, BUT, they can't just sit back on their collective 'butts' and do nothing. They need to get a plan that will work in our country.
I think healthcare needs to be reworked, but it can't be made mandatory for 'everyone'. Insurance companies need to become competitive by being able to sell across state lines. Americans need to learn to use their healthcare like we do our car insurance...for major things, not like colds, etc.
Hospitals and Doctors need to be able to give a 'discount for cash' for those who don't have insurance, but the cash needs to be paid the day services are done.
Americans need to realize that abortions are a blight on our country. We've killed so many generations, it is no wonder we don't have a recurring base of people to enter the work force and provide money for taxes and social security. It is also an abomination to our Lord.
The blacks need to quit bringing 'race' into every argument. Just because we disagree with what is being done doesn't mean we are 'racist' or bigoted.
English needs to be made the official language. If we went to another country you know they wouldn't change their language, or provide someone to interpret for us.
We need to quit 'dumbing down' our school systems. Where are the students that want to study the math and sciences to provide answers to our perplexing problems?
Our teachers need to be paid a living wage. Why do sport figures, who don't provide anything except 'someone to be worshiped', make millions and teachers, who teach our children, aren't paid accordingly?
Children need to be disciplined. They need to be taught respect for people in authority and their elders.
Immigration needs to be addressed too. Those that come illegally need to be sent right back home, or jailed.
Jobs will make a comeback if companies are given the incentive, with tax breaks, etc, to provide them.
CEO's shouldn't get big bonuses unless their employees are getting raises too.
Safeguards need to be put in place so government workers can't pad their own pockets.
I'm a firm believer in term limits, not just for the president, but also for the congress and senate. When their terms are up, they need to go home and get a job, and work for their communities. They shouldn't get their wages for the rest of their lives...or their benefits. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Enough of my rant, but that is what I think.
