My current thinking on the Fiscal Cliff is that President Obama wants spending more that the Republicans want tax cuts. I think that Republicans could hold out for the Bush tax cuts and the debt ceiling limit. The House of Representatives approves all spending and is controlled by Republicans. Let it go over the cliff. Then we will have a balanced budget when the debt ceiling limit is reached.
While current emotions say to ban guns in public places; data shows that almost 100% of the shootings have occurred at “gun free zones”. The killers know that they can do their evil thing safely without opposition. There was only one movie theater in Aurora Colorado near the shooter that was advertised to be ”gun free” showing Batman. Other theaters allowed patrons to have guns. Of course he chose the gun free theater to kill.
Mental health of shooters is a consideration in the shootings. I think that some parents are too permissive with their children turning them into monsters. Without discipline, they want too much and when they cannot get it, they turn against society and shoot it up.
The school shootings are very sad. I have some comments here and in the guns page and education page. My heart goes out to the victims families and friends. I pray that they will find solace and that we will take steps to reduce these terrible events. Unfortunately they cannot pray in their school as that is forbidden. Is the environment in the public schools contributing to the problem? Is the material taught or not taught a factor? Should guns be restricted?
The election is over. I did not win but I will continue this blog to share ideas with you on the current political scene. I thank all my supporters and contributors and implore you to keep fighting for personal freedoms. I will continue my efforts to have programs that appeal to all persons. We are all or aspire to be Americans.
The Republicans did not win because they could not answer the attacks of the Democrats. The Democrats had lots of vunerabilies but the Republicans chose not to attack them. I was correct in that I said that a moderate Republican would not defeat a progressive Democrat.
A central theme that developed late in the campaign was the 47% that are receiving welfare payments and do not work. Romney chose to ignore the 47%. I do not do this. I feel for the poor and oppressed and want to help them. I believe that there is a better life for the poor than taking a government handout and will work to inprove life for all.
The strategy of putting people on welfare so that they will vote for you was formulated by Cloward and Piven in 1966. See these links or goggle them.

During the four years I have been running for Congress, my vision of issues has greatly expanded. I am doing this site to share my vision and to comment on current events. Please feel free to add your comments.
My programs offer 100% pension and free health insurance. I have penned two bills to be introduced in Congress that offer this. Please see the tabs on Social Security and Money to see these acts
