    Already there my friend. The next steps would be armed civil conflict if you ask me.

    I don't know. I think awareness on our part, tends to lead us to believe everybody that voted democrat or republican is listening to either Rush Limbaugh or Keith Olbermann(or people of similar character). In reality, I think most of America hasn't partaken of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil as we have, and thus remain blissfully unaware of the dangers and pitfalls we all seem to see here. They still like their fellow Americans for the most part, and don't consider them to be mentally retarded, living in fear, or a different species of human all together.

    Hello?

    I think your reading skills need sharpening.

    I said pull out of NATO, didn't mention Iraq.

    I said pull out of Europe, didn't mention Iraq.

Then you real men of war will have to watch the U.S. become marginalized economically and militarily.
    "Up yours, Europe."

    Sounds good.

    They need to start kissing our ass, big time, because it wasn't their raucous moronic voices that kept the cossacks off the Atlantic shore, it was the US Army and a passel of nuclear bombs on this side of the Atlantic.

    Yeah. Saw that.

    So what? A pack of liars and an incompetent Kenyan half-breed don't make a legitimate election, do they?

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.

    You're just seeing what Democrats are really like, is all.

    They don't care if their canidates get into office by faking up some votes (Gore tried, Franken will apparently succeed). They don't care that the people they elected are perjurers, rapists, criminals, incompetents, and foreign nationals. They don't care that all the laws passed by these people they put into office are destroying the future of the country, they don't care that the laws being passed violate the Constitution.

    They FEEL GOOD, and that's all that matters. Results do not matter to them, the (D) after the name is what counts to these people. George W Bush is inarguably the most liberal president we've had since Carter, and he signed into law an almost unlimited number of truly stupid, severely damaging left-wing legislation, and is the Left happy about this? No, because they don't care about the results, which they approve of, they're unhappy because the (R) guy actually had the gumption to stop Al Gore's attempt to steal the election and put a (D) in the White House.

    THAT'S the kind of thing those suicidal fools base their emotions on.

    Thank you for your post. You're one of the very few that "get it".

    Both parties are big spenders, definitely the GOP needs to own up to its share of spending money it didn't have on hand.

    How did you win?
    How did you win the last midterms?

    Being honest?
    Being forthright?
    Telling people precisely what you wanted to do?

    No.

    Ferraro nailed Obama cold.
    He is there now, but in reality it was hysteria and ignorance that got him elected.

    As for the midterms?
    All the wacked out leadership went into hiding.
    You ran D's that were out of step with the party leadership.
    You used Foley as a foil.
    Then you brought Kerry out in the last minute and he fumbled on the 1 yard line.
    Many in your party thought ugh-oh.

    Once the circus acts are spent, what have you folks got?

    Little to nothing.

    You are the party of factions, not a coherent, time tested philosophy that works.

    What cheap trick will you folks try next time in an effort to camouflage the truth with your willing propagandists?

    Yes we lost, but we lost because we don't have folks coming out and espousing conservatism. Once that happens, we'll be fine.

    Until then, we'll have to watch the amateur hour circus act run the country.

    Carter was good for the Republican party.
    Obama... it is a little too early to have massive buyers remorse, but there are some already who have stated... this is not what I voted for.

    That's because you haven't been here that long. Although, you should have already figured it out by now.

    What I stated is certainley not exclusive to Democrats, IMO. You can remove your thanks if you'd like, since it appears you interpreted what I said, in a manner I did not intend for it to be interpreted.
