Legalize Marijuana

Legalize it. Don't criticize it!

 

We all know the facts, ok. No one if fooling anyone else with "Reefer Madness" type fear tactics. We all know it will not kill you. No one has EVER died as a direct result from consuming marijuana. NOT ONE. I will shoot myself in the head, on web-cam, if someone can show me ONE death directly from smoking weed. ONE, UNO!

Make all illegal aliens legal

In addition, legalizing these people will assure they get all the government benefits of USA citizens. Let us bring these illegal... more »

Bailout California and other states

California and other states have spent so much money they cannot keep on spending as they have been. USA federal taxpayers must take pressure off the legislators and citizens of these states with bailouts. If we do not bail out the states that have spent all their money people will lose jobs and services will be cut.

Enforce existing anti-trust laws in healthcare with regard to pricing.

Health care providers charge individuals paying privately as much as 2 to 3 times the amount they charge insurance companies.

Under anti-trust laws, you are not supposed to charge different prices for the same service unless the difference is clearly due to a cost difference. However, since insurance companies don't normally decide on the specific provider, it is still the individual deciding, and there is no discernible... more »

U.S. President Must Not Be Shady; Simply Make Records Available

Barack Obama has spent $Millions FIGHTING DISCLOSURE

Where is the REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE and why is it hidden?
Why has Mr. Obama sealed his school records?
Why has he fought so fiercely to hide his past?

Quite frankly we have no documented assurance
Mr. Obama is EVEN AN AMERICAN Citizen at all!
Why did Barack Obama swear to having NO OTHER NAME when it is well

Vote Mohandas Gandhi/Mother Teresa in 2012!

Presidential eligibility:

35+ years of age: Yes, way old.

Native born: Doesn’t matter, President Obama set precedent that candidates and elected Presidents can ignore the law of the Constitution. So who cares what a bunch of dead guys who wore powder wigs and gay pants thought anyway?

Lived in the U.S. for at least 14-years: Who cares? These are amazing people that were very spiritual and selflessly giving... more »

Members of Congress should not be allowed to vote to pass a bill without reading it thoroughly

Actually, we should introduce legislation that would fine or fire any member of the congress (EITHER HOUSE OR SENATE) who votes to pass a bill without reading it thoroughly. Members should abstain from voting if they have not read a bill and until they fully understand all components as written.
