The whole point of a democracy is to do what the majority of the people want. Yet all I see are laws being passed everyday that benefit a minority group of people. Does anyone else see a problem with this? What happened to the rights of the majority? Look at ObamaCare the only people who wanted it were democrats who are incapable of understanding the full cost and effect of something like that, all they see is "Free Health care" but don't understand that someone has to pay for that. Their answer is always "Raise taxes on the rich" but what good does it do to raise taxes on the people who sign your paycheck? Do you really think your going to get a raise or see your company expand when the guy in control of those decisions keeps making less money? How high of taxes would you pay until you just say screw it, and move you company to a country who welcomes people like you?
Then we have laws that seem to get passed anytime some small outspoken group gets attention on the news. Women aren't aggressive enough to get promotions or raises so they sue Walmart... Blacks don't pass a test to be cops or firemen so they make the test easier rather then telling them to study harder, I would be offended if they did that for white people! Gays get bullied at school so they pass bulling laws. What happened to a dad just telling them to punch the kid in the face? You might not win the fight but I bet the bully will think twice before picking on you again. Maybe these aren't the best answers, but its better then putting a new law on the books that will no doubt be twisted by some liberal lawyer to be used in the wrong way. They need to reverse this whole process and start removing laws not adding them. Telling me I have to were a seat belt or a helmet. Not allowing a small business owner to have a smoking area in his restaurant or bar. Its his business if he thinks he will make more money by not having a smoking area he will do it, but he should have the right to make that choice. read more »

Detroit use to be a great place to live but Democrats have turned it into a cesspool of crime, corruption, and high taxes. They have forced most of the jobs to leave the city or go out of business. This trend can not continue, its time for the republicans to take our city back. If you go to any other major city in this country people would fight you to live in a loft or penthouse in the downtown area of that city, but in Detroit you couldn't pay me to live there! Living in the city just means you now have to pay a city income tax even if your job isn't in Detroit. Living in Detroit means you have a chance to get shot, robbed, carjacked, rapped, or some other horrible thing and all this with a mayor who is going to rip off the tax payers and kill strippers (allegedly). read more »
