This s why you are stupid & why the Tea Party is not anything but stupid racists.

You had a balanced budget, moron.

You had it until Bush & Paul Ryan & the Republicans voted to take us off that path.

So if you are really about balanced budgets, you would not vote Republican.

Hence, why you and the Tea Party are morons.

Eh, that's according to how detailed you want to go when forming opinion.
Over all picture, it's 2012, and SUPERPACS have made the scene. What's fair is fair, gotta go with the current. Beats being perpetually stuck in the dark ages of pitch fork and torch carrying of the mobs ignorance of hedonists, anarchists and morons just strong arming a couple of honest working people on the other.
But thank you, you'll just have over look the intelligence LOL.
TEA! GOD Bless America!
Yep, the superPACs made the scene again, but it isn't "what's fair is fair", it's "what's unfair was countered with unfair". We weren't in the dark ages before the Supreme Court ruling created a hideous mockery of honest campaign finance, but there's no guarantee we can't return to workhouses and poor farms.

A proposed change to Minnesota's constitution that would have required photo identification in order to vote was rejected at the ballot Tuesday.

The amendment finished with the support of 46 percent of Minnesota voters. Fifty-two percent voted against the measure.

The defeat of the amendment, which was passed by the state's Republican-controlled legislature in 2011, defies much of the pre-Election Day polling that indicated it was a favorite to pass.

Come on, why would he do such a thing? DO you think the people on this site the last hours are interested in any "healing"? I bet you most of these people here would burn any "teabagger" alive after ripping their entire skin off first if they could.

When the party is about to end and some takers are going to demand more goodies, but when the dollar drops furthermore and the plastic bag full of dollars get stolen and the money left, you guys can keep on calling everybody else ridiculous names while threatening violence and spitting everybody else in the face, we will see.

If we donít make a drastic shift in this nation, I believe there's no way to escape Godís judgment. Billy Grahamís wife once said,ďIf God doesnít judge America He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.Ē I never wanted to believe that. But now I do. I can see it. God has removed His hand of protection at times because He loves us and hopes weíll wake up. Clearly, we haven't woken up yet.

There is a great awakening coming to this nation. For I have heard your cries and I long to heal your land. I am a covenant God and I will not forget the covenant I made with your Founding Forefathers. Yes, there will be a shaking, but the foundations will not crack and they will not crumble. Only those things which can be shaken will be shaken that the sin in the land may be laid bare.

Repentance. I require repentance from My people who have through the generations allowed the enemy to take ground in this nation. I require repentance for the abortions and for the prayerlessness. I require repentance for the apathy and for the idolatry. You shall have no other Gods before me. I am indeed the God of America.

Yes, there is a great awakening coming to this nation. I am the Author of it and I will bring it to pass. Just turn from your wicked ways and humble yourselves. Stand in the gap and make up the hedge. I am the Lord and I am a Warrior. I will not leave or forsake this country. I will fight through you and with you to regain what has been lost.

There's no consensus that happy days are here again, but the nation's mood is considerably better than it was four years ago. Then, the nation was spiraling into the fiscal crisis.

In 2008, only 7% said the economy was excellent or good; now that number has tripled. Then, almost half said the economy was poor; now a third say that. Four years ago, only one in five said "things in this country are generally going in the right direction."

stop saying that things are so much worst then 4 years ago.

Be encouraged now because as you go forth boldly with My Word and My Spirit there will be the sound of truth and it will prevail in the land. Speak boldly and clearly and watch as the mighty men arise to take their positions on the wall and in the churches and in the marketplaces. For I am raising up deliverers and reformers in this generation who will not shrink back at the challenge that is coming in the days ahead.

Yes, it will grow darker before My light shines brightly from this nation again. But the light has not been extinguished and will not be extinguished. The time to rise up is now. I am calling you to war. I am calling you to repentance. I am calling you to My side. I am the captain of the hosts. I am calling you to victory. I am calling you to destiny. Will you answer?

Please, Please Wake Up!

That was nearly six years ago! There is hope for America. I believe the remnant is rising. But it has certainly gotten darker in this nation and, again, I fear God's judgment may come if we continue to stand by in silence while abortions, same-sex marriage and other sin rages in our land.
The churchóAKA the sleeping giantóneeds to wake up. If the church were being the church, we wouldnít have all these problems. Of course, these problems didnít just start four years ago. Thereís been a gradual decline in morality in this nation since prayer was removed from schools in 1962.

Abortion was legalized in 1973. Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay marriage in 2004. And plenty of wickedness has taken place in between and since.

What if we all lived the Sermon on the Mount lifestyle? The Sermon on the Mount speaks against murder, which is what abortion really is. The Sermon on the Mount speaks against sexual immorality, which includes homosexuality.

The Sermon on the Mount speaks against divorce. But the church is largely ignoring the Sermon on the Mount's Christianity 101 lessons. The church looks, thinks and acts too much like the world. Christians are having abortions. Christians are committing adultery.

Christians are fornicating. Christians are getting divorced. Lord, help us!

At the same time, the Sermon on the Mount speaks to giving to the needy, prayer and fasting. I canít prove it with hard numbers, but I submit to you that itís likely that most Christians arenít giving to the poor.

Itís probable that most Christians arenít praying for our nation. Iím sure most Christians arenít fasting. We really arenít the salt and the light. And thatís why itís getting darker.

Adding insult to this injurious lifestyle, some Christians declare that the prayer rallies and solemn assemblies donít make a difference. I believe the greatest sin of the church is prayerlessness. The government of the world happens in the prayer rooms. Yet weíre too busy feeding our souls on worldly entertainment to meet God at the altar.

Our nation is in crisis. It has grown darker over the past five years. It will continue growing darker until we turn back to God as a nation. The good news is when we do, weíll see a Great Awakening and many souls will come into the kingdom. Iím blowing the trumpet. Iím sounding the alarm. There is hope for America, and that hope lies in the body of Christ rising up to do as Jesus commanded: Occupy until I come.

It is great to see how willing Obama and his minions is to "reach out" in the heat of victory. Do you guys "outreach" consist mainly of threatening to riot, call everybody else a "racist" and then expect everybody else to be your suggar daddies?

Obama-Democrat, Filibuster-vulnerable democrat senate and a RINO congress will at least ensure SOME gridlock. However, the Supreme court is still in liberal hands so most state laws can be declared "uncostitutional" any time by another judge.

Laugh and have fun now losers, hehe. The hangover will be hard, but then again, if you drink all the time, you should not notice it in any case ;)

One of the few things Romney said that made sense was that he did not see a point in trying to make 47% vote for him. So true. A coalition of lazy bums, crony corporatists, trial lawyers and abortion fanatics is enough to push the total above 50%.

Agree with most of the others here. The Republican party is pretty much dead now. All they can do is to hold on to congress as long as possible, but after that, it's all over.

Thanks to the Republicans for treating the only sane candidate in their primary like a pariah. I gave the thanks to Gary :)
You seem conflicted.
