Democrat vs Republican Stance on Controversial Issues
The Democrats and Republicans have varying ideas on many issues, some of which are listed below. These are broadly generalized opinions;
it must be noted that there are many politicians in each party who have different and more nuanced positions on these issues.
||Prefer decreases in military spending and if that can't be achieved, to use the military budget to fund sex-change operations for as many people as possible.
Believe that bending over for tyrants will result in tyrants renouncing their tyranny and making nice.
|Support spending as needed to ensure a strong military.|
Recognize a "peace through strength" military necessity.
||Do not support the Second Amendment (the right to bear arms).
Favor gun confiscation.
Cannot comprehend that historically 56 million defenseless people around the world were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th century right after their Rulers confiscated all their guns.
Become panic-stricken when shown gun shapes.
|Strong supporters of the Second Amendment (the right to bear arms).
Oppose more restrictive gun control laws. There are enough laws on the books right now, that if enforced, would curb the problem. Since criminals don't follow the laws, enforcement of existing laws is all that is needed.|
Support the right of citizens to carry concealed weapons in public places.
||Support keeping elective abortions legal, including late-term abortions.
Support government funding of pro-abortion entities such as Planned Parenthood.
Willing to riot at the thought of protecting life.
|Believe abortions should not be legal, or should be left to each State's voters.|
Do not support government funding of pro-abortion entities such as Planned Parenthood.
Recognize the life and rights of the unborn.
||Greater opposition to the use of the death penalty.
Feel really bad for the adverse circumstances that led someone to kill others.
Not really sure who the victim(s) were? Cardboard cutouts, maybe? The killer is the real victim and deserves sympathy.
|Less opposition to the use of the death penalty.|
||Support progressive taxes, meaning they want higher taxes on the wealthy.
Support increased Federal spending.
No upper limit to how many taxes they want; they will take it all.
Think all money is actually theirs to take.
|Support tax cuts for everyone (rich and poor alike).|
Support reduced Federal spending. Does every problem have a solution involving money, much of it unnecessary?
Recognize it is your money, not theirs.
|Role of Government
||Favor big government, increased bureaucracies.
Support increased role of government in society.
They know better than you, how dare you try to make decisions on your own.
|Favor a smaller government, decreased bureaucracies.|
Support a more limited role of government in society.
Recognize the connection between freedom and happiness.
||Free speech should be outlawed because someone may be offended. Only the truth as seen by democrats is worthy to be voiced.
Anyone who disagrees with them should be silenced, if necessary, by force (ref. human rights commissions).
In essence, being offended is a right and should carry the weight of law and be enforceable.
|Differing points of view should be discussed, examined, and compared in a completely open forum.|
Facts are not established by advocating feelings and opinions. Science is never "settled."
(Here's how it's done: see "Scientific Method" in Wikipedia *click*)
|Voter ID Laws
||Believe that voter fraud is virtually nonexistent.
Claim voter ID laws disenfranchise black and Hispanic voters.
Encourage illegal voting, since the ends justify the means.
|Believe these laws are reasonable and necessary to prevent voter fraud.|
Support fairness and accuracy in all elections.
Believe voter ID is consistent with other important activities that require ID, such as air travel, loan applications, etc.
||Believe that everyone must tolerate what Democrats like.
Believe that what Democrats don't like must not be tolerated.
Believe that selected minorities cannot succeed on their own.
Are quick to judge others on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation and religion.
|Believe each person is an individual.|
Accept anyone who believes in conservative principles.
Promote liberty, self-determination and broad civil rights.

Against a new
"assault weapons" ban
"US" by Paul Genova
(Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. since June 30, 2016)
I haven't said too much about this election since the start...but this is how I feel....
I'm noticing that a lot of people aren't graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.
In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump.
Some are apparently "triggered" because they are posting how "sick" you feel about the results.
How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!
You created "us" when you attacked our freedom of speech.
You created "us" when you attacked our right to bear arms.
You created "us" when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
You created "us" when you constantly referred to us as racists.
You created "us" when you constantly called us xenophobic.
You created "us" when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.
You created "us" when you attacked our flag.
You created "us" when you took God out of our schools.
You created "us" when you confused women's rights with feminism.
You created "us" when you began to emasculate men.
You created "us" when you decided to make our children soft.
You created "us" when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.
You created "us" when you attacked our way of life.
You created "us" when you decided to let our government get out of control.
You created "us" the silent majority.
You created "us" when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
You created "us" when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
You created "us" when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.
You created "us" when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn't remove your hat during our National Anthem.
You created "us" when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.
And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.
And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
With ballots, not riots.
With ballots, not looting.
With ballots, not blocking traffic.
With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of "us"
"YOU" created "US".
It really is just that simple.

Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates:
The Forgotten War that Changed American History * click *
by Brian Kilmeade (of Fox News)
JUST ONE MORE THING...
Just one more thing on ObamaCare Repeal...
Since only 8 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will 16 million people be randomly shot?
Just one more thing on Donald Trump...
If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?
Just one more thing on equal pay...
If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?
Just one more thing on Sanctuary Cities...
If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal?
Just one more thing on ISIS...
Each ISIS attack now is a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama's term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs.
Just one more thing on the London 'Lone Wolf' terror attack...
After the London 'Lone Wolf' terrorist attack government officials have arrested at least eight other 'Lone Wolves' who had conspired with the original 'Lone Wolf' in planning the 'Lone Wolf' attack. Even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured, the 'Lone Wolf; attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1000 plus 'Lone Wolf' attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam.
Just one more thing on Entitlements...
We should stop calling them all 'Entitlements.' Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nauseum are not entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts, and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
Just one more thing on the Muslim Refugees...
If Muslims want to run away from a Muslim country, does that mean they're Islamophobic?
Just one more thing on The Women's March...
If Liberals don't believe in biological gender then why did they march for women's rights?
Just one more thing on the Russians hacking the election...
How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?
Just one more thing on Democrats and the Electoral College...
Why is it that Democrats think Super delegates are fine, but they have a problem with the Electoral College?
Just one more thing on the FBI and elections...
If you don't want the FBI involved in elections, don't nominate someone who's being investigated by the FBI.
Just one more thing on Hillary's speeches...
If Hillary's speeches cost $250,000 an hour, how come no one shows up to her free ones?
Just one more thing on Russia manipulating our election...
The DNC is mad at Russia because they 'think' they are trying to manipulate our election by exposing that the DNC is manipulating our election?
Just one more thing on Trump's 'Locker Room Banter'...
Why is it that Liberals and the Media are upset about the words Trump used 11 years ago but they are all right with Adult men using the Ladies Room with your Wives and Daughters?

"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain
too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from
distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will
pursue his principles unto death."

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties,
nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in
their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders."
--Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, 1775
"The source of the government's authority is 'the consent of the governed.' This means that the government is not the ruler, but the servant or agent
of the citizens" -- Ayn Rand,
"The change we seek has always required great struggle and great sacrifice." - - Barack Hussein Obama
"The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master."- - - Ayn Rand
Here's the whole quote: "It stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there's someone
being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master."
The Fountainhead, 1943.
"The origin and outset of the American Republic
contain lessons of which posterity ought not to be deprived."
--James Madison, to William Eustis, 1819

"If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over
men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself."
James Madison, Federalist #51
Written between October 1787 and August 1788, The Federalist Papers is a collection of newspaper essays written in defense of the Constitution. Writing
under the penname Publius, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay explain the merits of the proposed Constitution, while confronting objections
raised by its opponents. Thomas Jefferson described the work as "the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written."

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier
to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man
for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools
should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude
of fools such as those who made him their president."
"The philosophy of gun control: Teenagers are roaring through town at 90MPH,
where the speed limit is 25.
Your solution is to lower the speed limit to 20."
- Sam Cohen (inventor of the neutron bomb)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms
and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
-- George Washington
LIFE IS LIKE A COIN.
You can choose to spend it any way you wish,
But you can only spend it once.
"Democracy tends to ignore, even deny, threats to its existence because it loathes doing what is needed to counter them. It awakens only when the danger
becomes deadly, imminent, evident. By then, either there is too little time left for it to save itself, or the price of survival has become crushingly high."
Jean-Francois Revel - (1924-2006) French politician, journalist, author, philosopher

Radio reception note: occasionally when the reception drops in the middle of the day, the AM station is conducting a mandatory FCC test. Without warning, the station switches to low power operation to simulate nighttime operation. The test seems to last about half an hour, and there's nothing we can do about it. You might like to switch to live streaming the station from your computer. That's what happened July 11th during the end of Rush on KTTH.
