Cruz, but I'm not religious.

The good news is, I think his commitment to the Constitution is clear - and in his professional/political roles - that has been his leading focus. I also appreciate fact that he's not too concerned about folks who say he's "too religious"...although people have coached him to tune it down for the base. He is who he is.

It seems to me that this country has a "sweet spot" you need to fall in to be acceptable when it comes to church-going (something like: be a Christian and attend church regularly, but nothing too charismatic...some very moderate mainstream Protestant gig, or we'll judge you)...As a non-religious person, it gets on my nerves that it is so much of the conversation.

I like Sanders, though I don't think many of the issues on his platform (specifically free college and $15 minimum wage) are economically feasible. I think it's great that he wants to reform health care (REALLY reform it, which the ACA didn't do), but I don't see Congress getting on board. At least he's not corrupt like Hillary, idiotic like Trump, or scary like Cruz.

Bernie! I don't like that he's against nuclear power, but as someone else said, that's because he hasn't been filled in on the info yet. I also don't like that he doesn't seem interested in finding NASA, and I'm not sure I want college to be free because that defeats the purpose of high school (which American employers need to remember instead of wanting masters degrees for flipping burgers). BUT, I do like that he is pro-choice and supportive of the right to bear arms. He also wants to improve the mental healthcare system. And, his record is consistent. He is passionate, trustworthy, and diplomatic. So I'm voting Bernie.

I support both Ted Cruz and Austin Petersen. I agree with Ted when it comes to national defense and illegal immigration, and his passion for the constitution. Austin, the libertarian is a close second, as I agree with him on his social views about 90% of the time and he also has extraordinary knowledge of the constitution. I dont know enough about his views on national defense, but Ted has my back on that issue. So to wrap up, I agree with Ted fiscally and Austin socially.

Bengi, with all due respect, you have no idea what you're talking about. You say you think the rich have put their influence behind the republican party and you want the GOP to return to the party of Reagan. But yet, you support the one GOP candidate who is the very definition of the establishment GOP, and about as far from Reagan as they come. Reagan actually CUT taxes (even for the rich), supported businesses, and embraced the free market. There is no such thing as a market "pie". The rich being rich does not harm the less wealthy in any way. The free market is about making a whole new pie, not distributing the single pie among the entire population.

Bengi101 Say what now

Reagan cut taxes for the rich and then bush w cut them too much.

I have studied history extensively.

Maybe you can help me, and I hope you can and I am open to anything, but when Bernie says half of all new income go to the top 1 %, the top tenth of 1% has more than the bottom 50%, and the banks on walstreet are bigger then ever... It makes you bot like the rich and big business.

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 4:26 pm

Let me help you with where I'm going on this.

The "1%" is a nonsense phrase that is meant to appeal to those motivated by class warfare and wealth redistribution.
Here's an example: It begins with households who make about $395,000 and goes up from there. As far as political policy goes, this group is being lumped in with people who make millions or tens of millions per year.
People making a few hundred k per year aren't the super rich. They're usually people with mortgages and car loans like everyone else, as well as crippling college loans or are reinvesting their income back into a small family business.
Do you see those people as the enemy?

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 4:30 pm

Here's another example: it also includes just about anyone who has $1.5 million in assets.
That includes lots of older or elderly people who earned well under $300k, but saved or invested well, paid off their home (that's part of that 1.5mil) and have retirement accounts.
Is a person saved their whole life to have a nest egg for their Golden years, which is expected to pay for their long term care and medical needs someone you hate as a %1'er?

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 4:35 pm

My wife and I fall into the 1% category. Our estimated effective tax rate is already 35-40%. After healthcare costs, Medicare/medicaid/ssi, we take home less than 50% of what we earn.
We were not eligible for any deductions or tax credits last year, except for a portion of our real estate taxes.
After taxes, we make less than people who earn less than we do because those people have access to deductions that we don't.
In other words, we're in this weird tax zone where we'd actually take home more money if we earned less money.
Is that fair?

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 4:42 pm

Bernie's talking point about the 1% is total nonsense. It's class warfare that justifies resentment and anger toward people who have largely worked very hard to get where they are, and are working hard every single day to be there. They don't necessarily have fancy houses or nice cars. They're people like doctors and engineers who actually contribute to society and help people, who are raising their families and saving their money, and dreading the day someone like Hillary or Bernie gets elected because the tax policies proposed by either of those real 1%'ers might make them default on their home loans, or lose their small businesses, or make them lay off some of the people they employ. And the fact that people like you are cheering that sort of harm is disgusting.

Bengi101 Say what now
04/04/16 4:52 pm

Well said milk I followed and agree with you.

However, I still have beef with ceos and bankers that make millions and received tax breaks left and right. Can you defend them or are they bad?

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 4:59 pm

There are people out there who make millions of dollars every year, and there is nothing intrinsically wrong with earning a shit ton of money. If you have a problem with people achieving wild success, then you need to stop calling yourself a conservative right now.

If we went to a flat tax rate, those people would pay their "fair share," and everyone should be happy.
But that's not what liberals want. They want to punish those people for being successful or, in very few cases, for gaming the system.
Besides, without a "no excuses flat tax," the "bad people" you're talking about aren't ever going to pay the taxes you think they should. They'll always find loopholes or get some unscrupulous politicians like the clintons to give them a special deal.

Bengi101 Say what now
04/04/16 5:05 pm

Thanks for those words of wisdom, seriously not trying to be mean or anything, I have honestly let bernie get to my head.

Another question that I figure you would have a POW I would like to understand... I saw the new movie The Big Short which is about how bankers and banks on walstreet did bad loans intentionally, made billions and created the housing bubble, and then it popped and the people had to bail out the big banks and no one went to jail. Am I missing anything or are these bankers and banks really that bad and in bed with the government so they could get bailed out?

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 5:06 pm

But that's never going to happen anyway, because most of our politicians, on both sides of the aisle, qualify as the super rich you don't like. They aren't going to pass tax laws that can't be bent and don't benefit them and their friends. The best thing we can hope for is that we can stop them from passing tax laws that specifically benefit them and their friends.
That means electing politicians who aren't declaring war on their own population in the form of punitive taxes.

I am talking about the Recession that stared in 07.

Bengi101 Say what now

So no one, not even Bernie, can fix the banks and bankers and stop out government from bailing them out when they mess up again in the future?

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 5:15 pm

I saw the big short, too. I thought it was great, and it really pissed me off. But what they didn't really show in that movie is what you sort of touched on- the bankers were able to get away with all of that because they knew their pals in the government would save them.
Bernie supporters walk away from that movie saying that we need more government to save us from the bankers.
That's backwards. We need less government. We need a government so small that the banks know there is no possibility of a safety net to fund their bonuses the next time they screw up that bad.
I want the government to be so small that it couldn't bail a bank out even if all the politicians' lives depended on it.

Besides, the majority of the bankers in that movie lost their jobs and everything they owned. There's a reason bankers were jumping out of windows when the crash came.
Also, many of them were people who only earn bonuses- they might go years between earning anything. It's a tough business.

Bengi101 Say what now

I seriously never even thought of that way.... if you make the government bigger to control the banks better, you also simultaneously making more room for corruption. And sure, people may trust Bernie and he may be a good guy, but the second he's out and a bad one comes in then Americans are screwed by an even bigger government!

Do you think the military should get bigger or do you think we mainly have wars ie the recent Iraq and current Afghanistan war, to make the war companies a lot of money and provide an enemy to distract the people with?

MrMilkdud
04/04/16 5:26 pm

I think that's two separate questions.
Yes, we have real enemies and need a strong military to keep them from hurting us (which isn't the same as fighting an endless war).
Yes, military funding is out of control. But so far, the politicians and the military industrial complex have conspired to make it look like any spending cut is taken directly out of soldiers pockets and healthcare quality. If we can secure solid funding for soldiers and their healthcare first, I'm all for rolling back military funding.

Bengi, this is the beauty of our Constitution. It is not perfect, but the framers understood that the federal government needed to be limited. That's why the government is set up in a way that separates powers between branches of government and between state and federal governments. It really is a document designed to protect us from ourselves. The will of the people is ever changing, and rapidly changing as well. The constitution acts as a way to temper the people's will, to prevent the government from increasing its power. Unfortunately, over the last 100 years, we've gotten so far away from the Constitution. That's what conservatism is about: returning to the principles of freedom and limited government that made our country the powerhouse it is.

I am also a college student surrounded by "misinformed" people, haha. You mentioned that you study history. What I would suggest doing is going back over the history of the United States, but focusing on the impacts that various events had on the size of government. For example, the 17th amendment is often overlooked in history books. I believe this amendment had a huge impact on the role of the federal government over the subsequent 100 years because it basically removed the state government's representation in the federal government. And now the state governments have very little to work with to check the power of the federal government.

Of the sixty-seven(67) senior executives of the major television and radio news networks, forty-seven(47) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 70%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented among the senior executives of the major television and radio news networks by a factor of 35 times(3,500 percent).

Of the sixty-four(64) senior executives of the major newspapers and news magazines, forty-two(42) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 66%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented among the senior executives of the major newspapers and news magazines by a factor of 33 times(3,300 percent).

This is just media, I could do this all night with other organizations but I have a feeling all you'll do is just say "He's antisemitic" and ignore everything I put.

At least I presented my argument well and gave you a lot of facts.

I don't care about the pre-WWII numbers. What is your source for the current numbers?

Well my numbers on Communism were from the beginning, proving my earlier point the Jewish community helped Communism spread.

The last set of numbers about the media were from 2013 or 2014 I believe.

For the media I can post all their names and Wikipedia pages.

I don't care WHO they are, I want the original compilation source for what percentage those executives make up.

As for communism, so what that those individuals helped spread communism? If those are the only names, then they are dwarfed by Soviet and Chinese names, not to mention proponents in the Americas.

So they can have a complete majority in the revolution, and the Soviet Goverments (Even in the 60s Soviet Goverment) and all you say is "Crazy Coincidence"?

The percentages I got to myself by adding all the CEOS names and religions that control the top positions in media.

Like I said I can post the names, but my last picture sums it up.

I'm not disputing your facts that those who hold major positions in Hollywood (whether they're practicing Jews is another story, but I make no claim to know one way or the other). What makes you an antisemite is the fact that you hate Jews. You hate the State of Israel because of Jews. I don't care your reasons for hating Jews.

I don't hate Jews, I'm just critical of their influence in Western society, and their history. I have respect for Jews like Goldz and Woody Allen. Being against Zionism dosen't mean I hate all Jews. (Our defenitions of Zionism differ)

It is as if I said I don't like the European history of Colonization and you say I hate all whites.

Sanders: He favors labeling GMOs which is indicative of a major ideological difference on the subject.

Kasich: He is way out of touch on the Planned Parenthood discussion and is uncomfortably conservative for me.

Clinton: She's as much a slimy politician as Cruz and is under multiple criminal investigations right now. She's also stopped pursuing a single-payer healthcare system.

Trump:

It is ok to take the high road occasionally.

Cruz: Answer a question without bringing up Trump.

Bernie Sanders. He's against nuclear, which is because he's poorly educated on the subject, but most are. Also he's cited the 77 cent wage gap claim which is bs, again others do that often as well.

He is wrong on the Apple backdoor issue however. Apple should not be required to give the government a way through the security features.

I agree with you on the TPP also. The only other thing I can think of is his previous support for increasing the H1-B visa program. I don't like that program except in very limited, specific situations. It's not that big of an issue though.

I love Ted Cruz, however, I do not like how he initially supported TPP. He called out McConnell on the Senate floor for lying to him about it, which I believe, but I wish he would have considered the source and investigated it before making a public statement on it.

It'd be good to have a real tyrant that we can trust and never have need question his motives. Or question anything at all! He's really someone who can streamline politics and get straight to the heart of the enemies.
