A new mission

I would highly encourage this group of Proud American to, have discussions, share videos, support politicians that have your best interests in heart. I would like to ask that everyone please keep it civil. Any racists/hateful comments or posts will be removed, as well as the member will be banned. *MOST IMPORTANTLY* Please help grow this site by inviting ALL of your friends, and stay active and get informed about the facts not the rumors! I greatly appreciate it, our fellow Proud Americans! All content is public and I would have it no other way. We here have nothing to hide and thank you for you support. It is our mission here to help people come together and have a civil discussions about what is on the minds and what there parties are doing right and wrong. We do not judge here, we will listen and try as a whole to come up with a sensible solution to problems instead of flying of the handle and getting mad with out no outlet to voice these opinions. That's what we want, to get together to make our society better not just for us but for generations to come and the only way to do that is to stick together with a common goal of bettering ourselves. Don't get all confused and convoluted with the different parties platforms and there personal agendas. Put all the parties aside and do what's best for this country and the people living here in it. I would like to believe that all the political parties want what is best for our country and us but sometimes it seems a little hard to swallow and that they are either feeding into there own egos or personal agendas to better themselves instead. I don't believe that they started out that way but the lobbyist and big businesses helped them along the way to veer from there original paths in order to get what they want. To me that doesn't make them bad, just misguided. It is up to us to help them see the error of there ways and help to put them back on the right path. As law abiding citizens it is, in my opinion, our duty to do so after all, I think that we all want the same thing here to be a better county and look out for one another. To summarize what I have just said, I don't think that all politicians are bad they just get a little off track and it is needed for us help them get back on the right path for the betterment of our society. This is just my opinion and that's how I see it, please tell us how you feel about this or other stories that are written here on this site. Thank you.

Money Going, Going, Gone.

This is not the newest news but I want to remind people the some business have some commonsense because they pulled there sponsership from Fox News and the the Glen Beck show because of there views towards President Obama and his adminastration. Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist with a deep seeded hatred towards white people and has repeatedly compared him to Hitler. There has been 20 in total but the most recent ones are Walmart, Tavelosity,Best Buy, Broadview Security, CVS, Allergen, amd Rebath. I now have more respect for these companies for looking through his bull shit and doinging something right, Congrats to them and good job. I hope that more businesses and sponsors out there come to there senses and follow suit by not supporting Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck and the Fox "News" channel when they continue to preach fear and hate to anyone that will listen and believe them. If enough of there sponsors either leave or threaten to leave then they might start to change how and what they report as news to have more facts and truths and less opinions and propaganda then it might be a news channel worth the time to watch. Until then Fox still gives them free range to do what ever they want to do in order to achieve what it is they are trying to do to further there own personal agenda. Enough is enough and finally some people and corporations are seeing it for what it is, fear and hate mongering and have the "balls" to take there money away from them. I say GOOD for them and it is about time. Thank you to the businesses that has done what is right.
Thank you and thats just my opinion.

Prioritizing and Governing

Prioritizing is the fundemental task of leadership and governing. The Democrats are attempting a watered down version of FDR's New Deal and the Republicans and Tea Party are upset about deficit spending. The Republicans are attempting to block any legislation in which funding is not laid out, or in other words, Pay as you Go. Or more aptly put, the conservatives are calling for no legislation to be written which is not paid for. Unless you are talking about the tax cuts from the Bush era, which are about to expire.

"You should never raise taxes in order to cut taxes," Republican Senator Jon Kyl said. "Surely Congress has the authority -- and it would be right -- if we decide we want to cut taxes to spur the economy, not to have to raise taxes in order to offset those costs. You do need to offset the cost of increased spending. And that’s what Republicans object to. But you should never have to offset the cost of a deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans."

With all due respect to Senator Kyl, but did you honestly say that you should never have to offset the cost of a deliberate decision to reduce taxes? Are you suggesting that programs should not be cut to offset the $678 billion of taxes not collected? With all due respect to Senator Kyl and other Republican and Tea Party representatives, but which is it that you want? Do you want to reduce the deficit or have non-offset tax breaks? You can't have it both ways, for one contradicts the other.

It has been argued lately that we are living in a "Welfare State" who is "redistributing the wealth." In light of this new discussion over offsetting the tax cuts, I can not deny this truth. We do live in a "Welfare State, redistributing the wealth" to the wealthy. Society is complacent to the struggles of others, until it effects them directly. And now we are beginning to scratch the surface of the division among our economic classes. We are in a dire time, of that everyone is in agreement. To quote former President Franklin D. Roosevelt, "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
