    Yes Obama's issue is over but there are lot of rumor about him. They said Obama is a joke.. his taking more vacations than any president to this date.. and the unemployment has gone down because the people worked to get it down..

    How come, ,whenever you news people talk about cutting government spending, you can only come up with cuts to Social Security and medicare. You never talk about the billions in foreign aid and all the wars we are engaged in. We can gaurde the border of South Korea, but not our borders. I am 75, and have tried to find partime work to suplement my socialsecurty check, to no avail, I would love to see sombody address these issues, Thanks for letting me vent.

    I agree with Charles. Every country talks about Medicare and Social Security when it comes to budget cuts. If countries didn't send so much money overseas with regards to foreign aid and the wars. even if you took 10% of the cost of the wars and reinvested it into the country in other ways, that would be a huge cash injection into any country. Appreciate the opportunity to voice my opinion.

    Obama is a great president.but he has lots of difficulties on dealing with the country issue.

    Is the incident in Houston, disallowing "God" or "Jesus" to be mentioned in services, a violation of the first amandment? Do they allow our currency to be exchanged there?

    Judge: Get a load of THIS: "But in a sign that the two sides are still split, Democrats are reportedly exploring whether Obama could decide to increase the debt ceiling without any approval from Congress. Such a decision could be based on language in the Constitution that says the validity of the U.S. public debt "shall not be questioned," which Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has said could be seen as a way to justify a presidential decision to increase the debt ceiling."

    Why don't we start a competition between the candidates to list specifically what they would cut and we keep track of the dollars. If Freedom Watch keeps track of the competition it is something many people would toon in for.

    Charles, with respect that is a very mixed response. Social security and Medicare 'at home' are just as important as foreign aid in an intimately connected world. War expenditure— yes, we can do with much less of that and if rich countries were better at foreign aid for the benefit of people rather than of economies we'd have fewer wars.

    To help balance the budget cut the salaries of all the U.S. congressman, senators, and representavies by 40 precent and freeze those salaries for 5 yrs. Make them pay into social security like all other people. Limit the number of yrs. an ex-president can draw a salary. Also, make their raises be by a vote of the people, and by all means bring are troops home to defend the American people against the invasion of our home land.

    Andrew, how do you defend your belief in freedom and in being left alone — and then state that a woman has no right to terminate her pregnancy. You call it "murdering children" and would have your idea enforced – by law. It's an individual choice, solely, ultimately, by the woman. If asked your point of view on abortion, your reply should always be, "I have no opinion." So I say to you about your hatred of abortion, "Then don't have one."

    The whole reaon I voted for Obama in the first place was because he promised to being the troops home. I can't express how disappointed I am with him at this point, and regret placing my vote for him.

    As to the used car saleman who wants to hire gangs to blow up the U.S.A. after the trial send him back to Iran. We need to fdind out where he got money to do this. If we can't impeach Obama then look deeply into where he was born. If perchance he waqs born outside of the U.S.A. then sue him for 5 Trillion dollars and send him back to where he was born.

    Hello Judge. I watch your show regularly. I respect your views on the constitution however I'm troubled when I read the constitution and I see what's going on today. Here are some violations of the constitution I see happening and I'd like to know if you agree with me

    (1) I believe the EPA, FDA, Energy Department, Education Department and drug prohibition laws being in the hands of the federal government is unconstitutional because for one, the constitution did not delegate Congress the power to legislate in any of these areas, nor were these areas prohibited from being in the hands of the states. So according to the 10th amendment, they are reserved to the states. When you talked about Ohio's amendment to Obama's healthcare mandate, you mentioned that the federal government may use the supremacy clause to fight it. As I have read it, this clause implies that Congress only has supremacy in those powers delegated to it and any confusion to that is cleared up by the 10th amendment. Does the line following the supremacy clause: "… any Thing in the Consitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwhithstanding" negate the 10th amendment? If not, then my point so far is valid.

  30. James Johnson Said,

    November 12, 2011 @ 9:05 pm

    Comment 2: The aforementioned areas in which the federal government has assumed control are governed by regulatory bureaucracies in the Executive Branch which enact regulations having the force of law and are the functional equivalent thereof, yet the Constitution gives absolutely no authority to the Executive Branch to do this. As I understand it, it doesn't even authorize the Executive Branch to create such bureaucracy.

  31. James Johnson Said,

    November 12, 2011 @ 9:06 pm

    Comment 3: These agencies do not exist by consent of the people and are completely unaccountable to the people. As you have seen, the result has been a president who circumvents the congress and governs as an authoritarian which destroys the pluralism the framers intended for this country.

    One last point: you always say on your show that the Constitution was written to keep the government off the people's back and to preserve individual freedoms. If that were the case, such a document would have to be completely unambiguous, otherwise it establishes nothing and as we've seen, the Constitution is somewhat ambiguious and this ambiguity tends to lean in favor of more government power and less individual freedom. Perhaps my understanding of the Constitution is incorrect. Since I greatly respect your perspective on these matters, I would appreciate your response because I am losing faith in the future of our freedoms and I don't know what to do about that.

    ps: I'm laying all this on you because I don't have anybody in my life to discuss these issues in depth without getting into an argument with them.

    Unions are necessary except in times of financial hardship. Easy solution = suspend unions during recessions or depressions.

    Freedom Watch, hell. Should be called the Ron Paul hour. Do you like his stance on Iran or on drugs? He doesn't like cops at all which is fine by me, but he never mentions the lousy judges and lawyers or the horse crap legal system we have. He is at heart a miserable lawyer, and you can't get much lower then that. I thought that other jerk Geraldo Rivera talked a lot but this guy never shuts up, another lawyer trait.

    To Jamie. You can talk all you want about abortion but did you ever pick up a newborn in your arms and realize you were holding a miracle in your hands? If you have you would never want to murder a infant. I personally think you abortion lovers should be charged with murder as that is just what you are doing when you suck the brains out of a baby or sever their spinal columns. I hopw you all rot in hell.

    Of course I like his stance on Iran and drugs. They're the only sensible positions. I don't know how he feels about cops, but I as President I don't see how that's relevant.

    He's not a lawyer, he's a doctor. You're confusing him with someone else.
