Why are Americans and Washington bitterly divided? Big Government is Corrupt Government
Iowa GOP suicide bombers don’t even want to run for the Senate; they know they’d be demonized
The Iowa GOP is having a tough time finding a candidate for the U.S. Senate who could win the party's nomination and the election. UPDATE: Rep. Steve King (R-IA) won't run.
Potential Iowa GOP Senate candidates who could beat a Democrat know they would be crucified by Rick Santorum social issues fanatics.
Who do we blame for ObamaCare, the unAffordable Care Act? Big Government corrupts
Who do we blame for soaring health insurance premiums?
You can blame AARP, health insurers, doctors and hospitals and the politicians that they paid with campaign contributions to distort the health insurance and health care markets.
And you can blame uninformed, unorganized and powerless voters for letting the Henry Waxmans of Congress and every president since JFK for making it all go wrong.
Health care is big money and big government.
Big government spends big money.
Big money in the hands of Big Government corrupts.
Big government corrupts politicians, campaign contributors, drug companies, hospital administrators, physicians and regulators who have anything to do with distorting our health insurance and health care markets.
That's why America's huge government is and looks so corrupt. We're a third world country now.

Greed for power drives immigration reform
There is no greed like the greed for power that is driving the Republican establishment's push for "comprehensive immigration reform" even when it involves a "poorly crafted", dishonest, unworkable immigration bill that is unworkable and never would be enforced by President Obama or his successors.
The GOP's leaders like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Mexico) think that if they back the most flawed immigration bill since the 2007 immigration bill Hispanic voters will give more support to the party's Congressional and presidential candidates. I don't think Hispanics will vote GOP, because the GOP is not of supportive of the Moocher Nation as Democrats are. Like Obama and other hard left Democrats, Hispanics think the government's job is to feed them and give them free health care.
That is why I think that the WSJ and Murdoch are way off base on immigration reform. They're pushing Congress to pass a flawed, dishonest and unworkable bill that never would be enforced if it became law. Obama and previous presidents haven't enforced border security for decades, and there is no reason to believe Obama would enforce a stronger law. He doesn't believe in the rule of law or in the U.S. Constitution.
I'm for the one-issue-at-a-time approach. Anyone pushing "comprehensive immigration reform" doesn't want reform, because it would be impossible to get through the House, if not the corrupt Senate.
What I'm for is a bill that would allow the members of the 11 million illegal immigrants who have paid their health care and education bills, paid local and national property and income taxes directly or indirectly, and obeyed our laws to stay as permanent residents.
No one who has illegally immigrated by violating our border security laws and regulations should be allowed on a path to citizenship. We should not reward those who've immigrated illegally and corrupted our politicians, judges, lawyers, journalists and academics with citizenship.
As for workers, the only ones we want are those who are educated, trained and capable of supporting themselves and their families. We don't need the sick, weak, illiterate, uneducated recruits for food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.
And we don't need illegal immigrants who think the S. W. USA should return to Mexico.

House GOP in charge on fiscal cliff, debt ceiling; what it should demand from Obama
Divider-in-Chief Obama is sending America over the fiscal cliff he created and is trying to use to turn America into a one-party, Chicago style corrupt and bankrupt country. Sec. of Treasury Geithner, a leading liar for Obama, says the country will reach the debt ceiling on Dec. 31, 2012, Previously he had warned the ceiling would be reached in February.
