Obama and his Democrat-controlled Congress extended the Patriot Act.
The Patriot Act has kept us safe more than you know.
That's right nitwit, we invaded Iraq for no good reason. There were no WMD and Sadaam Hussein wasn't a threat to anyone. We also didn't need a wholesale invasion of Afghanistan either and could have achieved our goals with targeted strikes on Al Qaeda targets. You've got to be one of the last dimwits on this planet that thinks that Bush's disastrous adventures that cost the lives of over 4000 of our military and maimed tens of thousands more and cost trillions of dollars was worth it. But you keep harping about Planned Parenthood which provides health screenings and pre natal care to poor women just because they also provide a legal service that you don't approve of.
But go ahead keep living in your little fantasy world.

We've just lost our grounding as decent human beings because of the spread of progressive secularism. It is making politics a blood sport. Win at any cost.
Hey stupid! The Founding Fathers were progressive secularists. The Constitution is the most progressive document ever written and it is also the most secular. There is no mention of Jesus or any other deity in the entire document. The Founders didn't want religion mixing with government or for that matter government interfering with religion.
If you actually study the history of politics in this country you'd see that it's always been a blood sport.

Therefore Ron Paul and his son are not libertarians.
I have to agree in light of recent changes in Rand but how so with Ron?

Don't confuse Ron Paul's personal opposition to abortion, that's a moral conviction nearly universally shared but you'd be hard pressed to find any evidence that he supported governmental control over a woman's choice to have or not have an abortion.

We went in to the worst depression since the 1930s in 2008 under a panicked George W Bush. Obama has done his best. President was reelected as a sign that the American people trust him not the Republicans and certainly not the tea party. Point!
How do you know Uncle Joe (and OTHERS) wasn't actually the one to pull the base votes in for the democrats?

Ah, you don't.

Actually, many are of the opinion the founding fathers were more along the lines of enlightened DIESTS, as MANY held positions in their respective choices of religious attendences.

And you're also WRONG (or in denial in a big way) about the Constitution--as it is signed and dated--in the year of OUR LORD...

You sound stupid! I won't call you stupid cause I don't know you like that, but you sound real dumb! I voted off facts, real facts unlike you voting for romney. You voted for hope because romney had no track record to run on. Governing a democratic state only proves that it was'nt him, but the democrats that actually ran the state. Proof is nothing statistically changed since he left. So in reality your like a kid watching television, hit wit subliminal messages your brain was too dumb to catch. More proof, romney couldn't even his parties nomination 4yrs ago against old ass mccain & a democratic challenger who was new on the scene.

In a historic bipartisan vote on Tuesday, the Senate passed Sen. Jeanne Shaheen's (D-N.H.) amendment to the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act that would extend abortion insurance coverage to victims of rape in the military. If the House of Representatives decides to include the measure in its version of the defense bill, military servicewomen who have become pregnant from rape will no longer have to pay out of pocket for an abortion procedure for the first time since 1981
