Thank you John from PSCU:
Redistributing wealth never works because government spending always increases, requiring more and more confiscation of wealth through taxes until there’s not enough profit incentive to stay in business. Eventually, wealth creation and tax revenues decline and the country collapses into bankruptcy.
This is one reason why socialism is flawed by design, and why socialist countries never prosper and eventually go broke.
This November, do your part to Stop Socialism. Vote liberal-progressives out of office.

First of all, (from Hotair)
Mexico didn’t exist in 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was written. In fact, Mexico didn’t exist at all until 1821, when the colony that had been known as New Spain declared its own independence. Before that, the area was populated with … Spaniards and countless Indian tribes.
Second of all, the Declaration of Independence reads: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Skip to .52 in the video and hear how our President reads the Declaration. While anyone can get a quotation wrong, I have to agree with the American Thinker’s Jason McNew who points out the grimace, blinking, and scowling certainly make it look like Obama wants to eliminate some aspects to the Declaration that embarrass him.
This is from Frieda. “I believe it is very important for our nation to read and reflect on the words of the Quran and what the nation of Islam believes they must do to please Allah. I could not verify this on Snopes and don’t know if this video is true”. Can anyone translate? (3-1-2011, this video has been pulled)

According to proponents of I-1082,
Washington is one of only four states with a government monopoly that forbids private competition for industrial insurance coverage. While workers’ comp taxes are falling around the country, Washington is one of only a handful of states increasing taxes this year. Oregon has not increased rates in 20 years – and employers there are actually experiencing rate decreases in 2010. Washington has the second-highest cost per employee for workers’ compensation. We provide the third most generous benefit package in the nation. There’s no such thing as a high-benefit/low-cost system.
