Thoughts on guns, government subsidies and incumbents

The United States is now rated fairly high on the list of worldwide murders. Four cities with very stringent gun control laws and controlled by liberal Democrats are Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans and Washington D.C. If we remove these I feel safe in saying that the U.S. rating would drop precipitously.

I am not sure how widespread this misconception of how more gun control would reduce gun related crime is, however, I feel much safer and secure in my home and automobile knowing that I still have the freedom to own and carry, if I wish, a gun. A gun does not kill any more than ice cream causes obesity.

Don't judge all Muslims by the actions of a few, but judge all gun owners by the actions of a few is popular with our current administration. Social Security, which we paid for, is going broke, but money for other countries, illegals, and Constitutional abuse continues. Knowing and using history versus progressive liberalism could be an answer to some problems. May help our government school system, too.

Some other misconceptions, not all original, but worth mentioning are: half of our population is government subsidized yet they remain victims, the politicians they keep electing run the government while making sure the victims grow poorer and more dependent each day. Greedy, rich, capitalistic, hard-working Americans feed and house the poor yet the politicians and poor think they don't contribute a fair share. These greedy rich people also pay the exorbitant cost of government and the salaries of the politicians who continue pointing America to the path of ruination.

How can any Patriotic American vote for any person with incumbent by their name? I, for one, will not.
