Rand Paul believes that business will do the right thing for the sake of corporate profits. To Dr. Paul, business will want to do the right thing to appeal to other customers and increase its profit. Although government may not be good and at times even bad– it is still necessary. The belief that its not– means anarchy, corporate or otherwise.
I agree with Sarah. Highland Park got it wrong. The people who made this decision put children in the middle of politics. And not only children, but children playing a game– a game they love.

When asked why he left the Democratic party, Ronald Reagan responded: I didn’t leave the Democratic party, the Democratic party left me. That’s what happened to Charlie Crist and other moderate Republicans.
If the Federal government doesn’t enforce immigration laws, then states are going to take it upon themselves to make laws and enforce them. Meghan McCain is right, illegal immigration is a problem. If you’re breaking the law and get caught, you’re caught.

Republicans and Democrats alike need to start working for the country again, rather than just winning the day and working for themselves. The current way the Republican party is going– betting against America– is bound to fail.
Joe Wilson is being criticized for calling the President a liar; when Joe Wilson was wrong. Now, the American people may disregard good arguments republicans have against health care reform.
