    Doesn't it bother you that the right's image only improves when fewer people are taking part in the political process?

    Plus, we know that whatever the new POTUS does, nothing bad will be his fault for at least 6 years because hey OBAMA!

    The disillusionment with the left makes people drop out. Lets see how long they remember.

    Worse than that. We wanted the economy fixed, and the Democrats did the opposite. They gave us the ObamaCare scam, which has become a huge, unprecedented drag on the economy. They gave us new environmental regulations, which have become a drag on the economy.

    Even their policies aimed at the economy, consisted of irresponsible, outrageous spending sprees, which have only harmed the economy.

    A recession which ought to have corrected itself in a few years has now dragged on for a decade, due entirely to Obama's and the Democrats' policies.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    A decade. Due to Obama's policies, the recession started in 2004. Bob Blaylock everybody. Take a bow!



    In case you're actually interested in some factual information, the recession ended in the summer of 2009 and this year's job growth is slated to be the strongest since the turn of the millenium.

    We're not disillusioned with the left. We're disillusioned with the center.

    You are unfortunately correct. The establishment republicans are afraid of their own shadow. They give conservatism lip service and approve a conservative platform every time they hold a convention, however they do not govern by it. They answer to their big donors and for the most part ignore their conservative base. They have the impression that the base will always hold it's nose and vote for them. They did well in the 2010 and 2014 midterms, however it was more a result of the democrats marching off a political cliff with obamacare and illegal immigration then anything the republicans have offered. They have been given a chance. If they fight to repeal or otherwise undo the worst aspect of obamacare and and fight hard to overturn Obama's unconstitutional EO in regards to illegal immigrants, they might keep their majorities. If not, will slowly fade like they did after 1994.
