Appreciate the chat session today.

My take is Schlingensiepen is against oil subsidies, but pro farmer and green energy subsidies.

He is against military action unless Congress declares war except in responding to terrorism and will vote against large scale funding for war or military action unless Congress has declared war.

Disagrees with Obama on many issues but especially that Obamacare did not go far enough in insuring Americans.

My opinion is all the energy subsidies are bad as well as subsidies for farmers.

Agree with him on military action.

Not sure about the health insurance since I am all for people having access to health care, but my support or opposition is on how it is accomplished.
