There is some good that came from the election. NC Republican Governor Pat Mccrory said "he will join with his Republican counterparts in governor’s mansions across the country who have indicated that they will not go along with the fiscally reckless Medicaid expansion mandated by Obamacare".

If Medicaid were to be expanded in North Carolina, according to a John Locke study it would add it 600,000 new participants at an annual cost of $4 billion dollars for the state.

What a disgrace.
I have to admit this one; I am in total agreement with Mike. Sulphur is a disgrace to mankind and this one hit me pretty hard. One of hundreds of examples as to his ugliness and being 300% unpatriotic. Who would wish our unemployment rate to skyrocket? I said I conceded to our President Elect as did Twitt, but I was not clear in my post. Let's just say I am not a sado-masocist and I did not vote Obama. I was trying to offer you to concede too. Americans who are honorable will do the same as a true American. Sulphur, you are nothing short of evil and a disgrace to mankind. Take your ugliness in every sense of the word and move to "your" 51st state of the union; not in my lifetime "friend"! Nothing like the Gold Coast ignorant one.

<quoted text> Come on Mike, you act as if democrat candidates aren't flip floppers. All candidates are flip floppers to an extent, this includes Barry.
This is your opinion but you're not a Republican, although you are entitled to your opinion. Republicans believe that Reagan was the only true conservative since 1960.
Why would you assume I think this?
What do you think Obama has flipped on?

Dependency on the govt is common sense.
Do I need to provide you with a link showing that a majority of black and latino women are also single mothers?
What I asked is that you prove your claims. I do not dispute the claim of single women. I dispute the claim they are dependent upon government. That is the whopper I dispute.

And your answer, TAKE from the rich and GIVE to the poor!
These aren't just talking points, they're facts!
We can't continue down the same road as Greece, Spain, France....
With the fiscal cliff looming, Barry's spending and his failed policies have us teetering on the edge and your party says yeah baby, four more years. And now you want the Republicans to compromise and raise the debt ceiling to offset Barry's spending? I hope the Republicans hold the line and let Barry's failed policies take us right over the cliff, collapsing out economy as well as the worlds. No, wait. He'd just blame that on that on Bush! Maybe the house Republicans should just give Barry a rubber stamp and pass every bill that comes their way, putting us on the fast track to self destruction! I'm sure he'd find a way to blame someone else for that also!
I can tell you what the democrat/socialist/communist answer is ...,

Quatitative easing or in laymons terms, print more money.

You conservatives love it, but the general public view them as out of control nut jobs. This behavior costs you electiions (Akin and Mourdock types as well.) The Tea Party is dead. Take your party back. Hispanic, blacks and young voters are not idiots and the demographics have changed. You need to change some of your public postures on some platform positions or your party is heading the way of the dinosaurs. Grooming Marco Rubio is your best chance of winning the Presisency in 2016. In fact, he would have been a much better choice for VP than Paul Ryan. At least you would have divided the hispanic vote with Rubio giving Romney a much better chance of winning.
Exactly. Why Pro and other republicans are still basing their reasoning upon elections fifty years ago is beyond me. I guess they are in denial the electorate can change.

I already told you, I have no problem being the bad guy and now you're trying to suppress my right to free speech because I do not agree with your president or political party. It is totally cool for you guys to dog out bush or republicans but don't like it when the shoe is on the other foot?

That is an example of democrat ideology failure.

Oh I get it. Kinda like Obama is a leader and uniter. He really isn't but tricked the uneducated into thinking he was with empty promises and lies.
You are diverting.
Clearly all politicians will not do all that they say. But if you change your position several times, the people will know you will just change again.
But this is not relevant to my main point at all. Your party line is to extreme. Bring it to the middle a bit. That is all I am saying. Can you address this or are you just going to divert over and over and over again?

Refusing to budge on taxes is one. I could make a list, but I want to take this one at a time and this one is critical and one that can certainly have a compromise on.

Mike, I don't have time to run check every post. Do me a favor and list all of them on one post and if it takes us a post or two to cover, then we'll go from there. You need to clarify budging on taxes. There's more than one type of tax people are required to pay.

Good to know that racism is not dead in America and lines are being drawn.

There will not be a second surrender signing at the Appomattox Courthouse next time.

<quoted text>Sorry, but that is just the saddest logic I have heard in a while.
If that many republicans pack up and move, then someone will fill the void. No matter if they have a company now or not.
I took my time to think about your response. Some one will fill the void.

If that is true and if that is truly what you and your party honestly believes, then why the stimulus and bailouts?

Another company would of stepped up and filled the void of GM and Chrysler collapse, right?

This is your electorate....

Obama's victory relied on big majorities in every group apart from white males. He won 75% of Hispanics, 73% of Asians, 56% of women, and 93% of African Americans.

All who work for the 1% who have the wealth.

But I do have a list of democrats you can go to work for...

Democrat Nancy Pelosi has a networth of 58 million
Democrat Hillary Clinton has a networth of 34 million
Democrat Bill Clinton has a networth of 80 million
Democrat Senator Herb Kohn has a networth of 231 million
Democrat Congressman Jarel Polis has a networth of 161 million
Democrat Senator Jay Rockefeller has a networth of 82 million
Democrat Senator Mark Warner has a networth 70 million
Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal has a networth of 64 million
Democrat Senator Frank Lautenberg has a networth of 50 million
Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein has a networth of 46 million
Democrat Congressman Harry Teague has a networth of 40 million
Democrat Congress woman Jane Harman has a networth of 112 million
Sen. John Kerry (D, Mass)–$193.07 Million
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.)$31.12 million
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.)$16.02 million
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)$15.74 million (dead now)
Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.)$14.38 million
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.)$14 million
Sen. Ted Kaufman (D-Del.)$7.97 million
Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas)$7.14 million
Rep. Steven Kagen (D-Wis.)$7.10 million
Rep. John Spratt (D-S.C.)$6.98 million
Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.)$6.95 million
Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.)$6.67 million
Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill.)$6.64 million
Rep. Parker Griffith (D-Ala.)$6.03 million
Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.)$5.97 millio
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.)$5.82 million
Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.)$5.78 million
Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.)$5.56 million
Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.)$5.38 million

Some on this list were voted out in the last election but you get my point.

(Overall the richest politicians in Washingtion are Democrats)

Lets not forget Warren Buffet, George Soros and Bill Gates although they are not politicians. Plus just about all of hollywood.

Lets help Obama lead this nation. We are the majority. Let's act like it.

And please Mr. President, make the banks and Wall Street pay. You're the boss, not them. Lead the fight to get money out of politics – the spending on this election is shameful and dangerous. Don't wait til 2014 to bring the troops home – bring 'em home now. Stop the drone strikes on civilians. End the senseless war on drugs. Act like a pit bull when it comes to climate change – ignore the nuts, and fix this now. Take the profit motive out of things that any civilized country would say, "this is for the common good." Make higher education affordable for everyone and don't send 22-year-olds out into the world already in massive debt. Order a moratorium on home foreclosures and evictions. Enact economic policy that will create good-paying jobs and spend the money that's needed to do that. Make your second term one for the history books.
