    He may be your enemy Travis, but most of the USA, certainly the majority, support Obama and not you or your brand of politics. Mathmatically, where the majority rules, doesn't that make you an enemy to the USA moreso than Obama?
    Didn't you mean the majority out of the 2/3rds of the population that didn't vote?

His extremist views will be tamped down there, while his sensible views will be among those that are a legitimate contribution to the discussion of America's future.
    Even a broken clock is right twice a day. When Rand Paul goes around talking stupid **** it damages any credibility he might have when he get's one right. Kinda like the boy who cried wolf. Know what I mean?

    We can only speculate where these people who didn't vote stand. But the majority of voters voted for Obama. No spin or diversion in the world can negate that fact.

    Okay regardless of what your party affiliation is, we all know that this guy is full of ****. I guess he overlook the hot topic about some shooting that occurred in CT. What was that story about again???

    This guy is slim.

    Which is ironic because Jingal is one of the people Jingal is talking about. The republcian party won't be able to recover from its losses for decades. They have a long history of hating every group but the rich white upper 1%.

    Turnout in this year's presidential and Senate primaries was the lowest on record, at 15.9 percent of eligible citizens, a new report found.

    Turnout reached record lows for presidential election years in 15 of 41 states which held statewide primaries in both parties. Democratic turnout dropped to record lows in 26 of 41 primaries. In the 46 states where Republican primaries were held, there were eight record lows and three record highs," according to the report by the Center for the Study of the American Electorate.

    The findings run counter to the common-sense notion that a close election means high turnout.

    Democratic turnout was at record lows in Alabama, at 5.3 percent of eligible voters, and 25 other states, including Maryland, at 8 percent. Presidential primaries in most states have been in place since 1972, so the national Democratic turnout was lower than in all recent cycles in which Democrats did not have a contested presidential primary.

    Well, I don't know how long the history is but one certainly cannot argue that it isn't what they are about today.

    I am old enough to remember when the GOP was an honorable party on the side of the people over their corporate special interests. I long for the day when that becomes reality again. Some GOP'er's seemed to have got the message. Some are fighting tooth and nail in their denial.

    Time will tell if the GOP get's with the program or not.

    My guess is, it will take the shock of losing the House in 2014, to bring about the change.
