And this thread delivers - it is fascinating!
First, because it doesn't get bogged down in Freepers' radical means, it dwells on their policy goals. And Freepers' goals, though radical, are not very different from actual elected Republicans.
The second thing is derivative of the first - the variation in this thread is not super large. In other words, GOP talking points work, even if the beast they've created is out of their control.
petercooper starts the thread off with a pretty good idea of the very nativist way these things are going.
Ok, I'll go first.Even the joke is revised to be tribal!
1. Build a wall.
2. Round up illegals/refugees.
3. Free ice cream for all (well not for them).
EvilCapitalist is also nativist, and anti-Muslim. But he fit some vague BS about the Constitution in there as well!
1. Deport ALL muslims(even american converts) they’re the enemy within. And raze their mosques, and sow the grounds with pigs blood.pgkdan is the same - first get rid of all the immigrants. Then war and small government!
2. Deport all Illegal Aliens in our country, and build the wall to keep them out.
3. Repeal every unconstitutional executive order ever passed, and slash federal spending.
I'd put a moratorium on immigration. ALL immigration, legal and illegal. That includes building the wall.TalBlack too. Getting a bit repetitive here...
I'd take the shackles off our military and let them destroy ISIS.
Cut Federal Spending, eliminate the EPA, Dept. of Education,etc,,,
Shut the borders ie kick out illegals, ban Islamic immigration.Lest you think the wall is anything more than a proxy for general hostility to immigrants, ataDude:
Slash taxes, ie Income, corp., death taxes.
Health care ie tort reform, interstate competition (booting illegals is a force multiplit here).
Three things isn’t enough really. America is a hell of a lot more broken Tha 3 thins will fix.
4. Build an unbreachable wall with mine fields (or alligators, snakes, etc.)along the entire southern border.Speaking of hostility, there was a minority like Netz whose first acts would be pure partisan spite:
5. Enforce current immigration law... except propose to congress that all illegal crossings be felonies punishable by a minimum of five years in prison (contracted to Sheriff Joe for tents in the desert with bologna sandwiches and water). After serving sentences, deportation by ship (long trip, rough seas) to South America (or Antarctica).
Begin filing charges against former President Obama.But generally you have vague but radical gestures in a nativist or small government direction dp0622
Begin filing charges against Hilliary Clinton.
Begin filing charges against former President Obama.
stop muslims from coming here.Because who can't support unspecified 'cuts' to government?
slash and burn the budget and departments of etc.
build the wall.
cripplecreek manages to mix vague with repetitive:
Return government to its constitutionally mandated role.IronJack wins the platitudes prize though:
Get government out of the way.
Leave people the hell alone.
#1: The economy.Wait. I spoke to soon. Actual occasional candidate for Congress EternalVigilance makes the talismanic tribalism pure:
#2: Downsizing government.
#3: Leadership -- in culture, morality, confidence, and law.
1. The Constitution.EternalVigilance is so Constitutional he'd ignore the Supreme Court!
2. The Constitution.
3. The Constitution.
So, help me God.
Ignore Supreme Court Justices when they opine immorally or unconstitutionally.Like EV, bramps seems particularly unhappy with the Constitution:
Ban the Koran for blatant incitement to violence.Like Trump, central_va is ignorant enough of modernity to roll mercantile:
Promote legislation to encourage lasting marriage between one and one woman.
Cut off ALL benefits to anyone here illegally.
1. Build wallswampfox101 manages to be more concrete:
2. enforce immigration laws
3. Stop all work visas for 10 years
4. Put in place a 20% tariffs on imported manufactured goods
5. Use tariff income to reduce corporate taxes and income taxes.
Balance the budgetDid I say Freepers mostly reflect the GOP here? Still true - abolishing all those agencies is Cruz's plan.
Round up, deport all illegals
Rid the US of the depts. of education, dept. of energy dept of EPA, dept of transportation, and dept of HHS.
More repetition, but EQAndyBuzz adds the DoJ to the list, which is even more dumb than most.
Fire everyone in the Justice Department.If you've been noting how almost every Freeper wish list includes illegals, Balding_Eagle blames our lack of a wall for everything:
Fire everyone in the IRS.
Fire everyone in the EPA.
Then after breakfast........
Build a wall, the following issues will begin to be resolved, in no particular order:Then there are the outside the box thinkers like relictele, who plans to purposefully make government crappy and inflexible to convince people that smaller government is good:
Better wages for us.
Stop terrorists from easily getting in
Less traffic congestion
Fewer auto accidents
Reduced drug running
More room in our jails and prisons
Fewer new diseases.
No more need of “Press 1 for English”
1) If a law has not been duly passed, it isn’t a law no matter what it’s called.Theophilus just wants radical change:
2) Work for the repeal of many useless, oppressive, unconstitutional and unworkable laws.
3) Enforce the laws on the books regardless of pressure or media groups to demonstrate that government and freedom IS a zero sum game as opposed to economics.
DisruptA surprising amount of audit the Fed BS showing up.
Article V Convention (bully pulpit, veto strangle hold)
End The Fed
Reduce the Cabinet by at least half. Annihilate their agencies and departments.
Another problem-solver, txhurl:
1. Use illegals (from all countries) and a bounty system to get them turning each other in.1) assumes no loyalty among illegals.
2. Fire up Keystone and 9 other major infrastructure projects.
3. Hire back everybody zero fired in the military and let them choose 3 jerks each to fire.
All this on day one.
2) is legit, though when Obama did it it was pork.
3) advocates a radical spite-based military restructuring which is sure to keep things running smoothly.
redfreedom is also deep thinker, wishing for a return to World War II's industrial engine, but without any immigrants...
Bring the fed gov back into alignment with the Constitution starting with:Another contradiction is MaxFlint, who if you take 1) and 3) together seems to want a police state, but only for non-citizens:
1. Strict border & immigration enforcement. Including, but not limited to, sealing off the southern border and sending back all illegals. Limiting legal immigration to a slow crawl.
2. Bringing American jobs back to America. We won WWII because of our industrial capacity. Should such a massive threat come to us now (and it’s almost here), we no longer have the industrial infrastructure or a young work force that even wants to work.
3. Shrink the fed gov. Get rid of rule creating parasites such as the EPA, that’s just one example. Give those powers back to the states.
1. Immigration shutdown, use every trick in the book to deport, block and hassle illegal immigrants and minimize legal immigration.mothball makes with the jokes, so you know killing Democrats shows up!
2. Abolish the TSA. Let airlines and airports handle security. This would assure my reelection.
3. End mass surveillance of American citizens.
1-Deport illegals and liberals.-
2-Executive order to euthanize Pelosi, Reid, Grayson, Durbin, etc.
3-Mandatory that businesses be closed on Sunday.Why not?
Now for those dogs who didn't bark. Issues Freepers get heated about, yet tellingly don't show up much when they're given a blank canvas.
dfwgator remembers the gays!
1. No Pooftahscatfish1957 is one of the few to mention Obamacare.
2. Build a Wall
3. No Pooftahs
oops andPollster1 manages Obamacare AND guns!
(7) Prod Congress to rescind the ACA,
1. Repeal Obamacare, no replacement.Ending with a return to the crazy, acw011 would reveal the REAL truth about UFOS and who killed Kennedy. And then start World War III
2. Secure the border and deport ALL illegals, with a permanent ban on re-entry for anyone deported, so they have an incentive to self-deport and we can save money.
3. Protect our individual, God-given right to keep and bear arms, by repealing as many federal gun laws as is politically feasible and prudent.
1. Alien File
2. Kennedy File
3. Bomb Saudi Arabia and most of the middle east
There’s a good reason I’m never going to be president.
