i don't think an anonymous poll on C-D is a very good demonstration of anything at all.

how do we know liberals don't comprise some or all of those 'i will move' votes in an attempt to make the other side look bad?

Spoiler
we don't

I'll chuckle when the Repubs go back into "respecting authority" mode.

If the Dems lose it all they will start a gay commune in the Northwest.

Joe Biden will be going down on Harry Reid. And Debbie Wasserman-Schultz will be licking it up on Nancy Pelosi with Barbara Boxer watching.

2016 -- who's butt will Hillary be licking?

This just lunacy! Compared to the transformative programs enacted by Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Baines Johnson and Richard Nixon, Obama's politics and and policies have been Hooverian by comparison.

The ignorant screaming ignorance. You only care about defending Obama, while I was talking about the entire political spectrum. Only one of us is narrow minded. You didn't bother to read the link, but you certainly made time for a personal attack. You simply can't tolerate a differing opinion, even when history bears out the similarity that I was pointing out.

Keep in mind that Galileo and Tesla were labeled lunatics.

Don't be so dumb to think that if you're able to get an Obama Phone, that you have a good President.

You have a lot to learn.
And you have a lot to learn about the importance of not spouting bizarre, hysterical allegations.

Again: you said that what's going on in America now is similar to what happened in Germany in the 1930s, thus insinuating that Obama is Hitler redux and that the Democrats are similar to Nazis.

Please explain.

Sad but true.

My take is that we should fire all the politicians and change everyone out with a vote. The problem is that we are only offered the candidates that have been approved by the masters.

We need to remove special interests and lobbyists, reset the Constitution to its basic premise, gut the FED, and maybe then we'll have a slight chance of pulling this out. Otherwise, it's going to be $30T in debt, $10 loaves of bread, .002% controlling all the wealth, the middle class decimated, and a free USA nothing more than a relic of history.

JMHO
I agree with that too.

You and a few others here are very gifted people. I can see these things but i can not gather the info to articulate it well.... This Govt going back so far as i can remember has been suffering corruption and special interests, and it is out of control.

I can only guess when the whole thing will implode on itself. There is no other outcome.

What would I do? Get up, go to work. Come home to a drink, go for a walk, crawl into bed with my girlfriend... Same thing I always do.

Do any of you actually read the links before making absurd counter-posts? It's impossible to hold a rational debate when half of you simply post reactionary thoughts.
