    The fact that you are asking where to get one is all the evidence anyone needs that you are not qualified.

    Hello? It's in the ****ing New York Times. If they don't want their information out there, maybe they should put a lid on it.

    I suppose you're right. Now, if I had an uncle, or perhaps a brother who knew the right person, I could maybe talk to them.

    If so, then I 100% share you pessimism except there actually ARE tea party candidates who wouldn't do that - although they're referred to as "tea baggers" by the Democratic left wing of politics and are derided as inconsequential and "extremists".

    I don't think the president has enough power, regardless of what party they are in (tea party or otherwise), to make much of an impact on our everyday lives. Hell, I don't think the government has that much of an overall impact.

    Not immediately, at least.

    The Health Care bill certainly will impact our every day lives... maybe it's not immediate but it's sure long lasting.

    The president didn't pass that bill, though.

    He proposed it's passage, he handed off the responsibility, his rhetoric for over a year supported it, he gave tons of speeches about it, he sent his administration out to talk it up (HHS Secretary for example), he then, signed it into law. So you're right, he didn't pass it, he just did everything BUT pass it.

    Sure, he supported and promoted it, but without congress on his side he doesn't have much power with regard to legislation.

    So when it gets repealed you will support that legislation?
