And Clintons. If those two entrenched families are the best a nation of 300 million + can do then pack 'er up, shut off the lights, and hand the keys to the oligarchs.

I was watching FOX in the gym yesterday and it seems that "Warren is a ultra-liberal" meme is on the move. Personally, I want her to stay in the Senate, but on an issue to issue basis, she's a middle-class issues populist. The fact that people think that standing up for middle class economic interests is ultra-liberal is frightening.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced Tuesday he will "actively explore" a campaign for president, an early move that could pre-empt some other Republicans with White House aspirations in the bidding for big donations and public support.

No it's not just you.

Jeb Bush to 'actively explore' run for president

There are 2 things that elect people these days when who wins Counts.

1. The Media
2. Rigged voting machines

This includes primaries and general elections.

Stupid is as stupid does....the GOP will anoint this clod. I am sick of the Bushes and even more sick of the Clintons. Why must the people with the most money get the nominations? Jeb is weak on securing the border so the open border advocates would drool with him in the WH.....Don't think his family is all that intact with the wife being hooked on pills...a little off her nut so to speak. I am just tired of political royals here. But Warren is a nut job in her own right being almost American Indian...so she dreams. What a crock we push to the forefront....
How about a doctor/businessman for a change? Not just a 2 year congressman/community activist who can't understand simple business/economic issues?

Fox always demonizes what the right fears, so it's no surprise that they are starting the drumbeat against Warren. They fear her because she is saying out loud what all of we, the little dis-empowered people out here, are saying--that the too-big-to-fail banks need to be broken up and that Wall Street should not be writing our laws. Funny thing is, that's also one of the Tea Party's causes, as well, but we have become so polarized that they can't agree with the message if it comes from someone with a D after their name.

So now what? Will the Conservatives fight against one of the few voices in Washington who is attempting to stand up to Wall Street? There's a name for that--it's called cutting off one's nose to spite one's face. How ridiculous is that?

I, too, don't want Warren to run for president. I want her in the Senate, giving voice to the issues that most people in Congress are too cowardly, or too bought and paid for, to raise.

Have you noticed that every time an ultra liberal Progressive stands up for middle class issues, life becomes so much more expensive for them? More of them live in poverty now than in decades. Stop helping so much I say. The kids at our local JC are starting to get it....

So in other words, sit down, shut up, and wait for things to change on their own. Because eventually, JP Morgan Chase et al will see the error of their ways and stop gambling with our money, getting bailed out at our expense when they are on the brink of crashing the economy, walk away with billions of American taxpayer dollars, and go back and do it all over again. Yeah, that's going to happen.

They OWN Washington. They are writing legislation to ensure we are powerless to stop them. And your solution is to shut up the few voices who are willing to address it?

Yeah. Ron Paul would have won if it were not for the media and rigged voting machines.
