It's been implied I won't share my views.  Please ask away here if you are still in the dark...



Pabar asks:

Do you believe partial-birth abortion should be banned? 
Yes, but not if it results in the death or serious harm of the mother.

Do you believe the U.S. should erect a more formidable barrier between the U.S. and Mexico?
No.  If we implement e-verify and invest in security, a wall will be unnecessary.

Do you believe that the ending of unemployment benefits for individuals has the effect of improving employment statistics?
UE benefits are a necessary safety net and a very good American idea.  Limits are necessary but extending these limits, when deplorable and speculative action by the greedy sends us into a great recession, is also in order.

Do you believe that citizens should be allowed to keep more of their income for the purposes of investing, saving, and charitably giving?
Some citizens should keep more of their money and some citizens are keeping far too much.  I hear some of our wealthy keep it all.

Do you believe the U.S. should have a strong military?
Of course.  I believe we invest more than the next several closest Countries combined.

Do you believe Roe v. Wade was constitutional? (Note - I'm not asking if abortion should be legal - this is simply a Constitution question)
Of course, if that's how the SC ruled.  I don't know how we go over the highest Court unless we pass an amendment and challenge it again.  Edited to add:  I would have voted with the majority in that decision but wouldn't have been asked to do so by the American people because I don't have the legal background to be put in their important situation.

For clarification can you name one person that you have heard of that pays no taxes?
You didn't answer he UE benefits question.
We already have e-verify but the left specifically prohibits it's use in many instances.

Not an individual but many companies go without paying taxes.  That said, I'm sure there are retired wealthy people who have significant depreciation expenses and pay no income taxes.  You didn't answer the UE benefits question. I have no doubt there are some instances where UE benefits may keep an individual from searching for work but I think there are many more instances where individuals continue to look for work and use UE benefits as a safety net.  We already have e-verify but the left specifically prohibits it's use in many instances.  My understanding is e-verify is not a requirement.  I could be wrong but if it is required, I'm sure companies from both the left and right are ignoring it.


spazsdad - Care to go to the amnesty thread and share your thoughts?

Not really as I see no difference between amnesty and legalization other than political speak to try and appease people so I have no idea what the point of your thread is.
I don't support any version of whatever you try and call it.

Profitable companies do not avoid taxes and they do pay taxes.  Those that don't pay taxes are losing money.  It's quite simple really.

At least you two can tell us what you think legalization means?  If a President Cruz allows undocumented to continue to work and go to school, has he accepted legalization?  A simple yes or no would work here.

Edit:  I'm not trying to call it anything.  Legalization is letting undocumented stay here and continue their work and education.  Any President against legalization will mean this allowance must end.  Period.

We have laws on the books.  The laws should be followed or the laws should be changed.  Period.  As you would say, I don't know how I can make it any clearer for you.

pabar - You ask me half a dozen questions and I answer each one.  I ask you if allowing undocumented to continue school and work means legalization and you can't say.  Therefore, let me make it an opinion question instead...

If you were President, would you allow the undocumented the right to continue going to school and to work?

Edit:  Same question to spazsdad and anyone else who cares to answer.

If the Left gets annoyed at 7+ years of the Right criticizing Democrats, they should ignore it and move on.

If the Right gets annoyed at 7+ years of a left leaning member pushing an alternative perspective, the Right should get annoyed and shout it down.


These aren't Dewey "views".  These are the positions of some of our Conservative UCS members. It's clear some on the Right can get extremely frustrated reading what they want no part of seeing, particularly when seeing it repeated over and over.  Incredibly, the thought the Left may be equally frustrated at reading several years of repeated and what is often insulting criticisms of left leaning thinking, completely escapes their minds.  The tunnel vision, the double standard, or whatever it should be called, is simply astounding.  "We'll do what we want, for as long as we want, but, please, would you stop doing that."  smh

Edit:  I'll repeat what I've said many times before.  The frustration with me has nothing to do with a never-ending campaign to counter what those on the Right suggest and to express my own opinions.  Many here do exactly the same thing.  The frustration is that I'm a Democrat.

Let's see if we can get this thread back on topic... I changed Dewey's responses to blue since that is more appropriate.

Do you believe the US should have a military strong enough to deter anyone from challenging it and able to protect its interests around the world?

PDad - There's only so much ignoring I can take and still answer all questions.  I'll ask you to please answer a few here before I tackle yours.


If you were President, would you allow the undocumented the right to continue going to school and to work?

If a President Cruz allows the undocumented to continue working and continue their education, does that satisfy his claim that he is against legalization?  If yes, what would be an example that wouldn't satisfy his promise?

How would you define legalization as it relates to undocumented students, workers, and others?

What is the difference between amnesty and legalization from your perspective?

Edit: I won't answer any more of your questions though until you answer mine above.

I would make it almost impossible to enter this country illegally.  Unfortunately for those of you on the left, that means building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  Once that was built, I would give those illegally some amount of time to become legal citizens.  Yes, during that process, they could continue to work and go to school.  But to become a legal citizen, you agree that you are an American, not a XXXXXX-American.  You agree that English is the official language of the U.S.  You agree that the Constitution is the law of the land and you will swear allegiance to it and to no other laws, especially Sharia Law.  You agree to a 1 strike rule.  You commit one felony, you're gone.  This is only for those who were here illegally and through our good graces, we gave a second chance.

There - I answered your question.

pabar - Thank you.  My definition calls that legalization, based on how I think the candidates are using the term and based on my own analysis of how those on the Right are speaking.  I don't think Sen Cruz favors legalization so using my word problem skills to come up with the following...

If legalization means undocumented students and workers can continue on the job and at school,
    and a Senator is against legalization,
         then the Senator is against allowing undocumented to remain on the job and in school.

Some here object to me telling readers this is what we can expect to happen but, based on the above equation I was once taught, it's true.  Needless to say, it may not happen the first week in office but it must happen eventually or the Senator saying he was against legalization was a false statement.

Fine. 

If Hillary is president, I expect she will want to grant blanket amnesty to all illegals, she will loosen border restrictions, ISIS will infiltrate our country and we'll suffer an attack far greater than 9/11.

If Bernie is president, I expect that by the end of his first term, if the Republicans in Congress continue to follow in Boehner's and McConnell's foot steps, we will see the national debt be around $35 trillion.

In either case, your "undocumented" issue will hardly get any traction in the media.  i.e. - nobody will care.

Dewey's idea of border security is travel guides to direct illegals to free transportation into the US. 

Dewey and other Libs will never define a "fair share" beyond "more than they're currently paying".

Dewey thinks the US military should be reduced to mall cops with pepper spray so Libs can divert defense money to buying more votes with free stuff.

Gotta give the choice to the woman that couldn't buy a condom or keep her legs closed. The baby has no choice in the matter. They hide behind their pro choice argument because they are desperate to buy any vote. Morality be damned.

Why don't you try this?  Tell us why Hillary Clinton will be a great president.  What will she do to make things better for Americans?  I can promise you that whether or not I agree with you, I will engage in a civil discussion about it.

Everyone is tired of your endless strawman arguments.


Hillary will be a good President because she's a Democrat.  She will protect Obamacare, invest in infrastructure, avoid unnecessary military invention, protect gay rights, address income inequality, reduce budget deficits, fight voter suppression, continue the fight for civil rights, and many other things.  I think these all make America better.
