This was exactly what a follower of Perot and a member of the Reform Party could latch on to. But since then they became more interested in no new taxes and jumped into the social issue arena and have said or talked very little about the debt.

    It is like the Tea Party has lost their reason for their beginning.

    I prefer Mountain Dew to Morning Dew. I'll take Little Jimmy Dickens over Led Zep. Took the wife out to lunch and had some Sweet Mango tea. Now as long as the hold is not the Calcutta Hole, you might be alright.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    And how many Libyans died in the Benghazi attack trying to help us? And was it not the Libyans in some way supposed to be protecting the embassy, where were they. Stevens was not contacting Libya for more security, he was screaming at Hillery for more security.

    Nope, the Left didn't take advantage of that situation did they? Obama up there speechifying away surrounded by law enforcement or parents of the slain kids.

    So you don't want him to honor the fallen? Bush didn't do that with 9/11 victims or Katrina victims? You don't see him getting attacked because of it? C'mon man let's be real here.

    How does any of what you just said relate to the idea the world hates us more? I think you forgot what you were talking about.

    I noticed you did not answer my question, but I didn't really expect one.

    But to your question:
    Don't you remember the Messiah was supposed to make the world love us again, far from it, world hates us more.

    I didn't answer your question because it was a red herring. If you would stay on topic, you would get answers. But purposefully twisting my words from a different response and applying it to a new concept is fallacious argument. Stay on topic and I'll answer anything you want, to the best of my abilities.

    But to your question:

    Once more, this is false. As evidence to present your falsehood, I showed how the Libyan population overwhelmingly condemned what happened in Benghazi.

    You make baseless statements and then reply to posts which defeat your statement with red herrings. Then you come back to your previously baseless statement. That's not good debating.

    Nice try, don't answer anything, but then go and tell everyone what they say is false. I'm done

    I refuted your statement. You've yet to do anything to support yours.
