You are just another dumb liberal who wants to take the country down the wrong path. The tax and spend deep debt path is not working. Obama called for change the only thing that changed is we are in so much debt that my unborn grand kids owe thousands of dollars to get us out of debt. The sad part is you not an idiot and you are to stubborn to see that we are a free country not a socialist country like the old Soviet Union. Obama is a old style tax and spend Democrat it is going to take several years to fix what he has ruined in 3 and a half years. Even my children get that we cant afford to pay for this guys communist dreams.

Normally, I stay out of these arguments. But I have to state that people who call Obama a “socialist” are either seriously mis-informed about the actual meaning of the term or are just being childish.

The actual record simply doesn’t support the argument. Period. Obama isn’t even a liberal in the historic sense of the word. He is, at best, a moderate. He’s not anti-business, he’s not anti-jobs, he’s not anti-oil, anti-gun, anti-constitution or anything else that the screamers claim.

Frankly the hyperbole coming from the Obama-haters just sounds childish. To be sure, there are reasons to criticize Obama and some of his policies. But that’s true of every President.

What we really need, more than anything else, is for those of us who want a reasoned discussion to just ignore the rants from all sides and look at the facts and the actual record.

I am not a bot. I am perfectly happy to listen to reasoned, fact-based arguments from anyone. In fact, I welcome it because it’s necessary. But, frankly, the children are running the island right now and it’s really a damned shame.

I will probably vote for Romney as the lesser of two evils. I would never vote for Obama (it has nothing to do with race). However, the Republicans are almost as bad when it comes to increasing the size of government, increasing the debt, decreasing our rights, and increasing the power of the federal government. It’s time we stop trying to run the rest of the world. We don’t need more than 700 military bases scattered around the world. We’re broke. What we need is to decrease our debt.

Hey!

If Mickey Mouse were running for President, I’d VOTE for him! ... anyone… against Obama!

Obama MUST GO!


Obama is living in another idealistic world and has NO SENSE of Reality…

Those of you that really ”Built” your businesses, YOU DID NOT DO IT! (what an insult to humanity!) Something else Helped You!
He’s trying to put you into a “Guilt Trip” so he can say… “You didn’t build your business WE, the Government Helped give it to you”; therefore, we are going to TAX you so we can get our money back! (IMHO, that’s where he’s headed)

Moral of the story:

Vote against Obama… even if you vote for Mickey Mouse (LOL)... it’s a vote AGAINST Obama.

During the Republican Primary, I was for anybody “BUT” Romney. I really don’t care much for him. He does speak from both sides of his mouth from time to time.

Romney as president = 50/50 chance of a train wreck, Obama = 99% chance of Armageddon!

I was with Romney then I was with Newt he had a better plan, but people don’t vote for fat guys anymore so he lost based on looks. Romney looks like a president to me and he is a bit to liberal for me but Obama ia a real Socialist. He wants everyone regardless of skill to be paid the same except for him.This guy just baned us from buying M1 rifles with a stroke of a pen, what a joke. He is for abortion and for gun control. he is anti small business and he is a fool. Its time to put him on the shelf next to Jimmy Carter as the worst president in history what a frigging mistake he turned out to be.

“Brazil, Russia, India and China are taking over and the U.S. looks to be falling farther and farther behind.”

Garbage. Simply not true. Russia? Falling population, a culture of corruption and a government of kleptocrats. Brazil? Not enough infrastructure. India? Massive social issues, a power grid (and roads, ports, schools, etc.) that isn’t good enough. China? No banking system, a police state and have you seen the demographic projections for China? No, China is not going to lead the world. To be sure these nations are all major players, but no other nation has what the US has.

Want proof? What is the world’s most stable currency with the capacity to operate the world? It’s the dollar. Why? Because the US is still the world’s largest economy and will continue to be so for some time to come. We’re not falling behind. No other nation has the capability for self-renewal that this country has. The debt is not the real problem. In fact you can look at the debt and the incredibly low interest we’re paying on it as an absolute affirmation of the stability and greatness of the US in the most sincere way possible, foreigners investing in it because we are seen as the world’s safest haven. The real problem is that the big, scary debt is being used to make you give even more of what you have to those who deserve it the least.

Here’s the awful truth: the greediest have a vested interest in making you think that we have failed, that our government is your enemy, that only the rich are the best and brightest of us. I call BS on that. Honor, love of country and responsibility are what made this country great and frankly, I see little of that in the rabid right. I see people who think that wealth automatically equals greatness, people who mistake luck for talent and skill, people who have forgotten that there is value in compassion and civility, people who have thinly-disguised fear of anyone with whom they disagree or see as “outsiders”. I, for one, am sick of seeing people who I know love this country being called un-American because they stand up to these bullies.

I’m an optimist. Looking a the long-term trends, the United States is in an exceptional position to lead the world for a second straight century. Demographic data supports this idea. I firmly believe that there is nothing that we can’t do if we are willing to do it. We have let the greediest of us make us think that we have failed. Shame on them. But worse, shame on us for not seeing what we know to be true: we have everything we need to succed and do our ancestors proud. We went to the moon. We saved the world from despotism 70 years ago. We created major industries out of popular culture, computers, electronics, the auto, air transport, the list goes on. It’s time to stop listening to those who would use fear to have us make the wrong choices. We have to stop racing to the bottom, we need to reach for the stars.

Greg D., I was leaning to Newt. It is sad that you never have a candidate you want to vote for, seems it always voting against someone else. I guess until we really change Washington by draining the swamp, nothing will change.

Term limits, campaign funds equal for all candidates, congress sharing our health coverage, and the total elimination of all lobbyist (a start) would bring us back to what made this the best country in the world.

I hear the liberals in Hollywood crying that the rich should pay more taxes, (an example) as the producers of “Breaking Bad” moved there filming of all seasons (5) to New Mexico because the state taxes were a lot less…. Hypocrites!

murch, I agree with you that our nation needs to unite to stay strong, I am very curious though, which side of the fence do you think we should unite on?
I disagree that we can never pay off our debt, if we can start following a balanced budget and stay on it. The spirit of the American people will come together and would gladly pay extra taxes that went only to the debt. Until our leaders start leading us to fiscal responsibility, we are going to lose this country without a major war, it will be by money, and it’s just a matter of time.

I am voting for Obama… just cause it will piss you guys off. LOL as far as I care, the USA is just a place. A place I love and enjoy, but just a place. A place full of preachy angry peoples who are falling behind in education, production, and health. To me, very few of you really care about “America” you care about yourself and your’s. And this forum is only a way to feel like your opinion matters with other people who don’t really care about you either.. just themselves and their’s. Let America die.. lets vote for either guy.. what is killing America is this fighting… What is killing America is that the simple golden rule is dead, that love thy neighbor is dead.. and liberty is almost dead because it is only liberty for most and rapidly becoming for the wealthy few…. (what happened to the “FOR ALL” lol). Compassion is dead in America. It is alive and well from person to person… but AMERICA ? as a whole.? LOL. NO. Let America die… let the corporations take over… sometimes people have to be beaten down to dust in order to understand and learn what is really right, good, and important. And what is good for you is good for ALL. All you Obama haters are just that.. haters. no real reason only your opinion. Go ahead vote Romney… I can move away and never look back. proud to be a compassionate American..ha ha ha… proud to be a Libertard and a Obamabot… proud that I help people every day and care about people. Proud that I want all people to be smart, safe, and healthy. Proud that I push to live happy in a average country rather than be wealthy (or poor) in a sick and poor country. sigh sigh sigh… PLEASE let November get here!!! I think I will vote for Palin… she’s enough of a moron to do real damage to you people.. hell I vote for anyone that will make all of your selfish lives change… here’s my compassion to you..

Joe, I’m not surprised at all.
Its painfully obvious that all those who speak in hyperbole here are the one’s who are disconnected with reality.
Dow Jones ~$13k, unemployment steadily coming down (although slowly) since the econ crash in 2009, killed Osama, ended war in Iraq. Hardly, a record to suggest that the sky is falling.

Its fine to disagree with policy and political views. I think that’s healthy debate.

Its when we give in to the fear mongering that politicians use to steer us towards their candidates that we become idiots. The more stupid we get or behave, the more the politicians will use this technique.

If you don’t want to be an idiot, you first got to realize that no matter who gets elected, the country is not gonna end. Our country has dealt with much more troubling times than this and our selection of presidents hasn’t come close to destroying our nation. Second, you mustn’t simply believe everything you hear just because it supports your views (As in the religious groups using an article from the fake news site, The Onion, to show that Harry Potter was secretly promoting Satanism).
Third, now that you’ve risen above all this hysterical nonsense, you choose to conduct yourself in an objective, fact based, and rational manner. You question people for their sources when they make claims and you refrain from the hyperbole that you once took. And hopefully, if you get enough people to realize what you just realized then maybe…just maybe… we all might have a rational debate about politics. :)
