    Think for a second. I know how I lean. That ahrdly means I know all liberals. Or that I know what the entire group is. You tend to speak like we all work in unison. You sterotype and get much wrong when you do. So, slow down and think it through.

    Nope. I'm fine with the truth. Present some and we'll go from there.

    Ha! Tim, I don't believe I've ever called him the devil. If I used those exact words, I was probably having a cocktail and refuse to accept responsibility if I mix vodka with politics instead of tonic! God knows, I'm am no fan of him, though.

They are mad as hell at Washington, the deals, the pork, the none sense, and they are mad at both democrats and republicans. We're sick of the backroom reach arounds, and the mocking of the American people. We're sick of unfettered entitlement spending, greasing the pockets, pandering.. Hell you name it pal. I can't think of one thing I like about our Federal government, not one!

    I don't know if that is true. There were many awfully mad during Bush's term. But what I find is important is that emotional responses, not based on fact, don't mmake your claims true. it is possible people are mad becasue they believe things to be true that simply aren't. With all the misinformation put out, and all those Beck watchers getting it complately wrong, we can't gage fact based on anger. Many are actually angery because they got exactly what they wanted.

    The factual point is, we are not near being run only from a central government. There are still separations, with little change from where we've been. Being angery about something that isn't happening doesn't change that. Perhpas if the fear mongering died down, and serious and honest discussion took place in the public forum, we might actually find we're not as divided as it seems.

    Obama has been sworn in as US president for four years....

    Unfortunately there's not much you (all who oppose) can do about it right now.

    Run isn't exactly the word I would use, or not what i meant. I would rather use the words "held hostage", or "extort" the powers from the states and local governments by various means? Do you need examples? Seriously? How about education, energy, drugs, health, police, and public service, waste, environment.. The list is lengthy..

    Let's take education for example. All states have to do is trun down the money, right? Should states expect the money without any strings?
