Another Democrat in the White House could spell disaster

Consider the following:

1) 50 percent of the people in this country pay NO taxes.

2) Over 50 million people receive food stamps; the number was 27 million when Obama took office.

3) 12 million people are on government disability.

4) Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, the DOJ, Eric Holder, Fast and Furious, immigration, etc.

I could go on and on, but what do you think is in store for this country with three more years of Obama, and then four years of Hillary Clinton?

Disaster, with a capital D. These two fools don't have a clue about anything pertaining to what is good for our nation.

Delegates' trip to North Dakota seems like overkill

Just wondering why it will take EIGHTEEN delegates to travel to North Dakota to learn about a permanent natural gas severance tax fund.

Couldn't two or three or even one person get this information? Or even better, with all the technology we have available today (conference calls, Internet, video calls, etc.), why does someone have to go at all?
