Ticket to yesteryear

Put this dynamic duo – Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Michele Bachmann – in the White House, and they could turn this country around and take us back to the good old days of the 1950s. The first thing they would do is to repeal the socialist Omamacare; we can trust the health insurance companies not to raise our rates and take care of us when we are sick.

They could also ban all unions and make all states right-to-work-for-less states, so we could compete with the Chinese sweatshop jobs. We need to bring these sweatshop jobs back to America where they belong. They could also cut taxes and regulations on big corporations and big banks. The big corporations and big banks can self-regulate and police themselves. They proved that in 2008. The large profits of these corporations will trickle down to the common people because a rising tide lifts all boats.

Get rid of Social Security and Medicare. It will teach the poor self-reliance and how to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. We can win hearts and minds in North Korea and Iran by bombing them. We proved that in Afghanistan and Iraq.
