Yes you did, stop lying.
So who did you vote for?
Not everyone is a follower. I voted for Gary Johnson. Would have preferred Ron Paul.

Ask Teddy, he knows I did not support Romney or Obama last fall.

I find it astounding that people don't understand why I do not support running guns into Mexico, taking away our right to due process (NDAA), a government cover-up of another gun-running operation in Benghazi that led to the death of 4 Americans, demonetization of the Constitution, etc...

You, by supporting Obama, support ALL of those things. Along with drone strikes that kill more kids than "terrorists."

Feel good about that?
yes

Obama is not the best person for the job. Neither was Romney.
The propaganda machine will tell you that the best person for the job is "crazy" because they don't support wars of aggression, financial collapse, and the end of the Constitution. Sheep like you (and your counterparts on the right) fall for it because you've been trained to subscribe to the false left/right paradigm.
You (and your counterparts) need to wake up. Do some research. It's not hard.

Someone that respects the Constitution. Someone that would not approve of running guns into Mexico to blame the 2nd Amendment. Someone that would oppose funding Al Qaeda in Libya while telling US citizens that we should give up Constitutional rights because of the threat of Al Qaeda. Someone that would implement sound economic policy, i.e. not increasing government spending while borrowing 40 cents of every dollar spent, someone that doesn't believe that the right to bear arms is dangerous.

You know... someone sane. But anyone that falls into any of those categories will be demonized by your "media" and immediately dismissed.

Enjoy the financial collapse and subsequent tyranny that you have been cheer leading.

Stop. Think. Wake up...

Really?
It's not the president's fault if people are too lazy to look for work.
Job Creation by the numbers under the last 6 presidencies:
Carter, 1 term; 10 million
Reagan, 2 terms; 16 million
G HW Bush, 1 term; 2 million
Clinton, 2 terms; 22.5 million
GW Bush, 2 terms; 3 million
Obama, 1 term; 5.2 million
The lying commie rat bastard Obimbo has done nothing to create any private sector jobs, quite the contrary.

Stooping to re-writing posts. Desperation breeds bad behavior, like all true followers of the Fox credo, Teddy.

Republican governors are taking advantage of an improving economy and a gradual rebound in revenues to aggressively push for cuts to personal and corporate income taxes, and propose making up the difference by raising sales taxes.

Sales taxes do not differentiate based on people’s ability to pay. All are equal before the cash register. The Wall Street banker is treated no differently than the lowly paid schoolteacher. Therefore all are required to pay the same tax rate regardless of income. The result is a tax scheme that takes more from the middle class and the poor than the wealthy.

This is what you've been reduced to? Sad. All you can do is re-write a posting.

Here's the original:

Are you seriously claiming that the "wealthy" spend less, and therefore pay less sales tax in a year than those with less money to spend pay?

Seriously?

That's the stupidest claim I ever heard.

I'm not interested in your mis-statement of what I said. All you right-wing clowns are way too clever (you think) for your own good.

Strictly for the sake of those who can read and desire information:
