Hallee on the Issues: Government Mandated Health Insurance

No one can deny that there is a health crisis in America. The generation we are raising today is the first generation in history that will not live longer than their parents. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, morbid obesity, autism, Type II diabetes, cancer, heart disease, viral outbreaks, a host of chronic conditions — our hospitals and doctors’ offices are flooded with patients.

Hallee on the Issues: Immigration

I don’t have a lot to say about immigration except this: If my children were hungry or in danger of persecution and/or death, and I had no relief whatsoever in my land, I’d do whatever I had to do and go wherever I had to go.

Hallee on the Issues: Government Spending & the Federal Debt/Deficit

I have a fiscally conservative perspective when it comes to things like government spending. Our government spends WAY too much money. If you want to see some of the mind-boggling appropriations, a good source is Citizens Against Government Waste. They break down how much money went to what, and which Representative is responsible for the bill to enact the spending. Spend some time there and you’ll see what is called “pork” – excessive government use of taxpayer dollars.

Hallee on the Issues: The War on Terror

In 2002, you would have been hard pressed to find a more patriotic American than me. I was a newlywed, the wife of a Special Forces soldier who was fighting the War on Terror on the front lines, and I was a huge advocate for our presence in Iraq. The partisan political buzz didn’t dissuade my opinions (and in hindsight, I don’t believe I was wrong) about aggressively battling terrorists on their home turfs.

Hallee on the Issues

With it being the second week of November, and Tuesday being election day in the United States, I thought I’d do a series of posts on my opinions on “the issues” that face Americans today. Then I discarded the idea, because I barely have time to get recipe posts up the way I like. But, when I was brainstorming for posts ideas, a friend on Facebook asked me to write a post on the Iraq War. It brought back my idea to do a series of “Issues” posts.
