since the democrats are so incredibly inept that even when they own the house, senate and white house they cant so much as pass a simple operating budget...maybe YOu ought to considering replacing them with people that have a spine and some semblance of competence. Hey...find some replacement democrats since i know mindless ideologues vote for party at all cost... but for Gods sake...for the country's sake, for your great grandchildrens sake...STOP excusing the current crop of clowns. To be honest...you guys OUGHT to be embarrased. George Bush was such a dunce, yet he ran circles around the dems. The dems held majorities in all houses yet the republicans thwarted them. That means...your guys blow. hard.

But majorities are irrelevant if the minority party is willing to abuse the rules (filibuster) to thwart the majority. Which IS what the.Repubs have done.
And I don't habe an absolute loyalty to any party, I have voted for Repubs on occasion if I believe they will do a better job.
I think "think tank" conservatism is DESTROYING the America I grew up in. Their propaganda designers have been mind raping this society for decades. There's some crackhead ideas on the left as well, but they lack the amorality and uniformity of "message" enjoyed by the "think tank" right.
They're trying to catch up though, and I find the whole thing disgusting. So much so that I probably WOULD vote for a viable libertarian-style candidate if he refrained from veering right socially. Huntsman is actually interesting to me.
And just to be clear, I oppose the agenda supported by portable wealth as opposed to the agenda of wealth that depends on American paychecks, for what should be obvious reasons. And if all the govts going to do is defend property rights, enforce contracts and provide for defense, then how does that differ from feudalism to the average person?

Obama is doing a dismal job. Bush did a dismal job. Both parties in congress are doing a dismal job. As a citizen it is very frustrating. As a father and grandfather it downright pisses me off.
