    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died. George H. W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41's life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens.

    Thumbs down

    Anyone who knows the history of George H Bush understands why he was an evil human being.



    Let's go down just some of the list (feel free to contribute):


    - He pushed gun control on "assault weapons"
    - He launched illegal military interventions in to Panama and the Persian Gulf killing thousands of people.
    - He lied about taxation (which helped cost him the election)
    - Thus he gave is the Clintons
    - He actively fought against conservatives and smaller government
    - He actively supported intervention in South America and Somolia.
    - He was deeply involved in the treasonous Iran-Contra scandal
    - He began plotting against Reagan the day he was sworn in as VP.
    - He expanded the federal government's role in education
    - He pushed NAFTA
    - He was the Ambassador to the UN
    - He was head of the CIA
    - He was a member of Skull and Bones
    - Some speculate he was involved in the JFK assassination, the John Hinckley Jr. plot, and that his family helped finance the Nazis.

    Credit goes to leader Reagan who made that historic call to George HW Bush to be his VP. George W Bush had rightly said that without Reagan's foresight to pick his dad as VP, there would not have been a President GHW Bush or President George W Bush. American voters, particularly Republican voters, deserve tremendous credit also for standing by them year and year and giving them opportunity to serve America over two generations. Trump's foresight to pick Pence as VP seems no less stellar than Reagan's choice for light of conservatism to carry on long after he's gone.


    Trump Offers Praise for Bush and Will Attend the Funeral

    Mr. Trump plans to call former President George W. Bush, the son of the 41st commander in chief, to offer his condolences, the White House said in a statement. A state funeral is being arranged and Mr. Trump will designate Wednesday as a national day of mourning. Mr. Trump and the first lady will attend the funeral at the Washington National Cathedral.
    “President George H.W. Bush led a long, successful and beautiful life,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday morning. “Whenever I was with him I saw his absolute joy for life and true pride in his family. His accomplishments were great from beginning to end. He was a truly wonderful man and will be missed by all!”

    Just Friday, Mr. Trump signed a new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement first negotiated by Mr. Bush, which he disparaged as bad for the United States. “The terrible NAFTA will soon be gone,” he wrote on Twitter.
    For his part, Mr. Bush was never impressed by Mr. Trump. “I don’t like him,” Mr. Bush told the historian Mark K. Updegrove in May 2016. “I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.” Rather than being motivated by public service, Mr. Bush said, Mr. Trump seemed to be driven by “a certain ego.”
    But he recognized that Mr. Trump was at the forefront of change. “I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president,” he told Mr. Updegrove, who later wrote “The Last Republicans” about Mr. Bush and George W. Bush.

    A spotlight on the people reshaping our politics. A conversation with voters across the country. And a guiding hand through the endless news cycle, telling you what you really need to know.

    The current president sought to put that history aside on Saturday, even citing Mr. Bush’s “thousand points of light” in the written statement that he authorized aides to release in the immediate hours after the former president’s death.
    “President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service — to be, in his words, ‘a thousand points of light’ illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world,” the statement said.

    All I know is Ronald Reagan hated George HW Bush.

    REAGAN ENDORSES BUSH-TEPIDLY
    "George Bush, who seems to need a lot of help, got as little as possible Wednesday from President Reagan, who gave his vice president a tepid political endorsement."


    REAGAN AND BUSH: CALL IT A SNUB https://www.newsweek.com/reagan-and-...it-snub-196034

    "Ronald Reagan is not called the Great Communicator for nothing. In one brief sentence last week, the ex-president neatly summed up his view of George Bush: "He doesn't seem to stand for anything," .... but in case anyone doubted his true feelings Reagan then refused to be seen with the president in public. He skipped a Bush fund-raiser in Los Angeles and barred the press from his house when Bush came calling....There has never been much love lost between the Bushes and the Reagans."

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
