    Without the buffers of private property and free enterprise, collectivist charlatans are more easily able to force people to chase superstitions such as “social justice”.

    Liberty is an adaptation to our own ignorance regarding much of the knowledge we make use of each day and the uncertainty associated with future events and circumstances.

    Are you sick of George Soros’s and Saul Alinsky’s Hope and Change yet ?

    Not one Damn Incumbent.

    Why shouldn’t the FCC be as corrupt as the EPA, IRS, and the Bureau of Land Management under Obama’s Administration ?

    Barack Obama, George Soros, and Hilary Clinton should be in prison.

    Is any of George Soros’s money used for anything other than violence, Terrorism, and Coups ?

    Why would the monsters in charge in the Islamic Nations that support Terrorism all over the world and the communist George Soros support Hilary Clinton ?

    Why wouldn’t they ?

    Barack Obama’s and Hilary Clinton’s support and praise of Mohamed Morsi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Group’s Arab Spring was Treason.

    The Hamas are the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist in Palestine.

    CAIR works with Terrorists.

    Not one Damn Incumbent.

    George Soros is an Undesirable Illegal Alien and his Global Warming Fraud is a disgusting lie.

    End the Patriot Act, the Monsanto can Poison the United States Bill, Obamacare, the NDAA, the Patriot Act, Operation Jade Helm, and shred Barack Obama’s Executive Orders. Get CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Hamas, Valerie Jarrett, and Barack Obama out of our Government.

    In the United States our heritage is not being slaves to our government.

    Our heritatage is Freedom.

    This is not Kenya.

    Not one Damn Incumbent.

    Islam has spread child abuse, abuse of women, torture, murder, and war since 600 AD and does the same today.

    In the nations of the United Nations with Islamic Law there are no Human Rights or Freedoms.
