The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton". The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mrs. Clinton is not the President and doesn't reside here. "The man thanked him and again walked away.
The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton." The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mrs. Clinton. I've told you already several times that Mrs. Clinton is not the President and does not reside here. Don't you understand?"
The old man answered, "Oh, I understand you fine, I just love hearing your answer!"
The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow sir."

Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, both very liberal Democrats, would love to see an America where everyone is financially equal. At least, that's what they promise, right? If you are poor and struggling the Democrats will 'help' you with things like free Health care. But who does that hurt?
Those with money, that's who. Hillary’s definition of “those with money” means any family earning more that $80,000 a year. Oh, I know...'but they can afford it'. It seems only fair doesn’t it? I mean you're a good person. You DESERVE free health care and since there are people with “buckets” full of money out there why shouldn't they give a little to help you out?
But where does it stop? This Socialist mentality will trickle down into everything. The wealthy are that way because they are driven. They might be too wealth driven. They want the 12-room home, the Escalade, Mercedes and Corvette in their 3-car garage.
But what happens when the Socialist Democrats put their policies in place? All of the rich guy’s motivation is gone. How can he afford such luxuries once he is forced to support the poor? So he closes his business. Why deal with the headaches, the long hours, the time away from his family when he's only going to have the same house and car as everyone else?
So he closes his business. Maybe he owned a big bakery and supplies his area with bread. He shuts it down. His 500 employees are left unemployed. That's more poor people for the rest of the wealthy to support. They finally give up too. That's even more unemployed.
But wait, that bakery is gone. Now the locals need to get bread that's shipped in from far away. The price of bread goes up. Maybe it hits $10.00 per loaf. Who can afford that? Not to mention the farmer who depended on that bakery to buy his grain. Now he's losing money. He has to lay off his workers, too.
But without the grain some other bakeries are forced to shut down. More laid off workers and even less bread. Now bread is $25.00 per loaf. Even that once successful business owner can't afford that.
Yes, Socialism creates financial equality. It creates a country where we are all equally poor! Just remember the newspaper and television images that came out of the old Soviet Union. People were waiting in line for hours to buy bread and toilet paper. It reached the point where the government was forced to supply it. Even the government was unable to keep up with supply and demand.
That was the moment when Ronald Reagan stood up and said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall". You see, the timing was right. It was time for the USSR to admit their idea of a perfect Socialist nation had failed. Yes, the entire country was financially equal. They all had equally old and torn clothing. They all had equal hunger pains. They all had equal houses crumbling around them.
Do I have an answer? Not entirely. But I know this much. The Democrats idea of creating a Socialist America is absolutely the worst thing we can do. Those who need help should definitely be helped. But the Democrats idea of how to do that puts this very existence of this country in great jeopardy.

Do you know which candidate sees the major issues most closely aligned with your views?
This is a survey being conducted on the Minnesota Public Radio website that can show where you agree or disagree with the major Republican and Democratic candidates positions. It's not a poll as such, so just answer each question as you see that issue.
Take the survey HERE
I'm not telling who most closely matched my opinions, but he used to be a Governor.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
DR. PHIL : The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on 'THIS' side of the road before it goes after the problem on the 'OTHER SIDE' of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his 'CURRENT' problems before adding 'NEW' problems.
OPRAH : Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.
HILLARY CLINTON: It's because of the poor social services on this side of the road. The chicken saw how good socialism is and the many free programs and services I want to give him on the other side of the road. I support the chicken coming to our side of the road whether he crossed legally or illegally. Remember, No chicken is illegal!
GEORGE W. BUSH : We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.
GENERAL PETRAEUS: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road...
TOM BRADY - NE Patriots Quarterback : The chicken was the only eligible receiver open. I hit him with a pass when he reached the other side of the road, he went in and scored.
ANDERSON COOPER - CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
JOHN KERRY : Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.
JERRY SPRINGER : You said that you were married to your husbands brother at the same time and were also engaged to your gay cousin? I guess I now understand why you would cross that road.
NANCY GRACE : That chicken crossed the road because he's GUILTY! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.
PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.
MARTHA STEWART : No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.
DR SEUSS : Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.
ERNEST HEMINGWAY : To die in the rain. Alone.
JERRY FALWELL : Because the chicken was gay! Can't you people see the plain truth?' That's why they call it the 'other side.' Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media white washes with seemingly harmless phrases like 'the other side. That chicken should not be crossing the road. It's as plain and as simple as that.
GRANDPA : In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.
BARBARA WALTERS : Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road.
JOHN LENNON : Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.
ARISTOTLE : It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
BILL GATES : I have just released eChicken2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken. This new platform is much more stable and will never
ALBERT EINSTEIN : Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?
AL GORE: I invented the chicken!
COLONEL SANDERS : Did I miss one?
DICK CHENEY : Where's my gun?
AL SHARPTON : Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens. Where's all the black chickens at?
