    Yep. We ask only for 3%. It 3% of their GDP. It's a fair way to do it.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our democracy and our society.

    I'm not sure what NATO is a defense from. Russia isn't going to invade Europe with or without NATO. NATO doesn't seem to have had a mission since 1991.

    Merkel Hits Back, Says Germany Makes Independent Decisions



    Thank you Merkel, for validating how you don't consider any others in the EU. Yet piss and moan about when they make their own decisions.


    Message to Merkel. Shut the $#@! up and prepare for pasture.

    I get kind of amused at some on the left. When discussing taxes in this nation they always say everyone should pay their "fair share" the richest 1% should pay their "fair share" yet when Trump suggest NATO member nations pay their "fair share" the left goes bonkers.

    Oh regarding taxes and the paying of one's "fair share" I interpret that to mean that if some people pay 10% everyone should pay 10% not as the democrats would have you believe that "fair share" means one group pays 10% and another group pays 85%. Note - percentages are for illustrative purposes only.
    I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
