    I do not put any value on the Benghazi thing right now. I feel that it was a tragedy and terrorist event. However, I feel right now that the most important issue is our fiscal situation and the continue devaluation of our currency.

    I fear that people just don't realize how weak the American dollar really is and the only thing propping it up is the "World Reserve" status that won't last forever. Paper currency has historically failed when not backed by a commodity like gold or silver. As countries continue to try and back out of it (even though that may lead to military conflict as was the case in Libya and Iraq) we will see it lose that status. When it does...we're looking at massive inflation to a point never seen in this country.

    When the SS controversy started. I know it does no good, but it makes me feel better.

    Both are equally important. Course we know from 2009 who is pushing us over that fiscal cliff and was the one who made the fiscal cliff. Still we cannot allow Susan Rice to become the SOS or even to keep her spot in the UN.

    She is a disgrace and embarrassment to the Country. Not to mention she has been out played, out maneuvered, and out-witted in the UN. We can't afford to have weak, sniveling people in Foreign Policy. Plus don't forget she was the Clinton Drone that was part of Somalia and that tragedy. Screwed up with Sudan and has had the Russians walk all over her azz. Time for Susan Rice to quit playing off Daddy's credentials and to hit the ranks of the Unemployed!

    She should look into the Mirror and take note.....she was never Up to the challenge in the first place.

    I far and away disagree with you that both are equally important. I find this Benghazi situation to be a cloud over the real problem which is our currency devaluation. Susan Rice and foreign issues are not nearly as dire as what I stated about our currency.

    I honestly could care less who Obama appoints as Secretary of State. I am more interested in the Secretary of Treasury and the Federal Reserve chairman. We keep having these distractions over the more dire issues in this country. It was a tragic event that happened in Libya, and Ambassador Stephens should always be remembered as a great American who gave his life to duty of country. I will not deny that, but we cannot allow our attention to be diverted away from our fiscal issues.

    We cannot continue down this path of printing endless amounts of money while having no oversight on it. The Fed has no oversight and that is pretty damn scary when you think about it. Former CEOs of Goldman Sachs run it, and they can spend tax payer money without accountability. If that doesn't strike a cord with people, then something is wrong with you.

    We should always remember the sacrifice of Ambassador Stephens and those killed with him, but we cannot divert away from our deficit and endless dilution of our currency.

    Let's see.... I live in the Communistwealth of Taxachusetts. We have two Liberal/Democrat US Senators. We have ten Liberal/Democrat US Representatives. The Senate here in Taxachusetts consists of 40 seats, 36 of which are held by Liberals/Democrats. Of the 160 State Representatives 133 are Liberal/Democrats.

    As a Conservative, Who the hell am I supposed to send these letters to?

    Well, even if there were conservatives in your state, you'd still be an outlier anyway.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    True. My point was simply that some of us don't even have anyone to talk to in our area, nevermind actually trying to get them to listen.
