    Or you can simply leave if you are that unhappy. Might I suggest the center of Antartica?

    But feel free to choose revolution if you want. Although given the amount of people that would actually follow a revolution (small handful at best), I would put money on the teabaggers getting mowed down pretty quickly.

    You see the quite large majority of the country (both sodes) are not insane and do not believe we are under some dictatorship or tyranny needing revolution. Do we have an inefficient government? Yes we do and they are elected by the people. Do we have a government that needs to be disposed of by a violent revolution? No, we don't. Not even close.

    So have fun with your rhetoric of revolution if it makes you feel better. The rest of us will stay in reality.

    your three family members sacrificed, you personally, did not...and how dare you denigrate his military service...some nerve you have....you should be ashamed of yourself...you owe him an apology

    Don't forget their role in the destruction of America's premier industry by sloppy work and greed.

    According to who? And btw, what is their job? Expalin your comment a little more.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What in the hell are you talking about? Nothing of the kind. Illegals come from all over jr. I tried to show how silly your statement was. You didn't seem to get that either. Do you really think states competing for illegals is a good thing? Seriously.

    Yes I do have a family and even family members that are currently serving in Iraq. Let me tell you something from experience. Yours and my experience (having family members deployed while we are in the states) is nowhere near the sacrifice they or I experienced while being deployed.

    So, again I ask, what exactly did you sacrifice in the Iraq war?

    As for your comment about being glad I got out of the military because I give it a bad name I'll dismiss as just ignorance on your part. I'm proud of my service and I served honorably. What have you done?

    Have you even read the links I've posted? If you don't, you won't learn that you're wrong.
