My political leanings are more toward a smaller government. What is happening right now is not good. The government is getting it's hand in too much stuff it doesn't need to be in. My leanings are more toward the Libertarian ideas. The government doesn't need to have it's hands in controlling businesses. They are a bunch of lawyers, not businessmen. Over the last many years I have seen politicians make it a career and it really shouldn't be a long term thing. They are getting too much power and getting power hungry. There should be term limits. They no longer are acting in the best interest of the people they are supposed to be representing. I think we should move to something like The Fair Tax to fix the tax problems. This will also get more money into the hands of the people to get the economy moving again. I listen to a bit of talk radio mainly these guys: Neal Boortz, Michael Savage, Jerry Doyle, Laura Ingraham . I don't always agree with them, but listen to what they have to say. As Neal boortz likes to say: "Don't believe anything you read on this web page, or, for that matter, anything you hear on The Neal Boortz Show, unless it is consistent with what you already know to be true, or unless you have taken the time to research the matter to prove its accuracy to your satisfaction. This is known as "doing your homework."" So I try to do that as well. I also check out Townhall.com for other insight.
