    Did y'all ever consider moving to a country that has the same political views as you people instead of trying to steal this one? You don't like Cuba or something?
    Did you not notice the latest elections? Apparently you should move you good ol' boy!!

    Do the math bro. You're the odd man out.

    Maybe you should look into relocating.

    Re: Powell cautions against a GOP slide to the right

    I find it awkward that anybody would say this country isn't moving to the left.

    1998 :

    - After having won control of the House for the first time in 40 years in 1996, Republicans lose 5 seats in 1998. The worst showing in 64 years for a party that didn't hold the presidency.

    2006 :

    - Democrats once again become the majority party in the House(which they had been for 40 years before that) after only 12 years of Newt Gringich's 'Contract with America.

    - As a result Bush becomes a lame duck president

    2008 :

    - Democrats get a near Filibuster majority in the Senate(are we still waiting on Franken?)

    - 'The most liberal Senator' since John Kerry becomes President after running against a moderate like John McCain and a far right VP pick named Sarah Palin.

    -------------------------------

    And Truth Detector still doubt that this country isn't moving left? Would you like to buy some ocean front property in Nebraska?

    Come back when you can do more than blather such uninformed provocative hyperbole.
    You're a prime example of why the GOP is moving to a more moderate stance. Nobody in their right mind would want to say they belong to the same party you do. The belief is that if they edge towards the center enough you will go crazy and splinter off and form your own radical sect of the conservative movement. Based upon assessments of your current behavior, they predict it will eventually be declared a terrorist organization by the government and shut down. At that point the real conservatives can safely return to the public light without fear of being associated with your antics.

    That's what I heard on Glenn Beck anyway. I think he called it Operation Truth Reclamation or something.

    I don't guess you got the memo. We all swept the last election, we all outnumber y'all. And it's gettin' worse for y'all by the day.

    Ummmm....seriously. You need to turn off Fox, turn off Savage, put down the Ann Coulter novel, step away from the internet, and visit a zoo, or a park, or something. This is one of the most ludicrous statements I have ever seen posted on this forum.

    Dismissed; take your whiney diatribes to another thread.
    I would suggest that you need to "dismiss" yourself if you can come with to criticize President Obama for is that he once was a "community organizer".

    I believe that there was a little lady who lived in an Igloo who als o criticized candidate Obama for being a "community organizer". How did that work out for her, or her handlers!

    That 's about all I have to say about your childish attempt to go one up on me!!!

    Re: Powell cautions against a GOP slide to the right

    You know something. I never realized how full this country was, of people that hated it for one reason or another, until I started posting here. Whether it be people that hate the Republicans for their actions, or Democrats for their actions, just about everybody thats politcally involved/aware seems to be driven by negativity towards their fellow Americans. Whether its people referencing the left as "libtards" or the right as "tea-bagging rednecks" the level of animosity people have towards each other, just because they merely espouse a different set of values is simply sickening. And its reflective in the media biases that portray our fellow Americans, as enemies of ourselves.

    In some ways, we may be lucky a majority of the American public doesn't care too much for politics or gets that involved, save every four years. To get everybody drawn into this vortex of hatred and animosity would just create divides too deep to heal.
