OK - I know your head is thicker that the vaults at Fort Knox, but I'll try.
Obama and the Democrat Party leanings are more European and "socialistic" than America has traditionally had. Your allies are socialists and communists and it's no secret, many in your party of "Democrats" (you really should pick a new name) do not like capitalism.
Socialists/Communists have indeed told people where they can live and what they can do for work. They even mandate vacation time and work hours like in France. Carol provided one example and I can tell you about a friend of mine that is a Cardiovascular Surgeon. He is from Germany and while in Medical School there, was told what specialty he could go into which he did not like, so he came to the USA and is happy here due to our freedom. Similar to Carol's example that went over your head, my German friend came here due to our Freedom and the system you Democrats are trying to eliminate.
Do you know anyone from the former U.S.S.R. or Europe that experienced such a situation or limit of freedom? You must live in a bubble and not be very educated.
I know another person that left the USA for work related reasons and does not want to come back due to Obama and the Democrats class warfare - tax aspirations.
Obama and the Democrats have also passed new regulations that make doing business more difficult. I have seen them first hand in my business an cannot believe the Democrats passed such useless, stupid rules and I could see why people would just say forget it if trying to start a business.
Why are you so stupid, PDUPONT? Listen to Carol a little harder. She can teach you people of limited intellect a few things.
Well "Nosewax" your argument is so full of holes that you could strain pasta through it. We're not Germany or France and no one has even suggested where people can live, work or what they do for a living. I'm not even sure they do that there and suspect you're pulling it out of your anal orifice. Anecdotal stories about people you claim to know aren't proof of anything. We do have regulations on work hours that mandate time and a half over 40 hours and I'm sure working people don't consider that to be a burden.
Carol and you live in some kind of bizarre alternate universe.

I HAVE. IN TEN YEARS WE COULD SAVE 5 TRILLION DOLLARS BY COMPLETELY ELIMINATING THEM AND PUTTING THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR "DEFENSE" BACK WHERE IT BELONGS: ON THE STATES AND THEIR MILITIAS. WE'LL NEED THE OTHER TRILLION DOLLARS TO TAKE CARE OF ALL THE CRIPPLES - MENTAL AND PHYSICAL - THAT BUSH AND HIS LEAVE-IT-TO-BEAVER CRONIES CREATED WHILST MAKING THE REST OF THE WORLD SAFE FOR DEMOCRACY, WHICH, AS SO MANY OF YOU HAVE POINTED OUT, IS NOT WHAT THE UNITED STATES IS, BUT NO MATTER. 5 TRILLION IS 5 TRILLION.

BUT, IN FACT, THE REAL NUMBER IS MUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCH LARGER THAN THAT. THE ACTUAL SAVINGS TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OVER TEN YEARS BY ELIMINATING THE DEPARTMENT OF "DEFENSE," IS MORE LIKE 10 TRILLION DOLLARS BECAUSE, OF COURSE, MOST OF THEIR BUDGET IS HIDDEN WITH THE BUDGETS OF OTHER FEDERAL DEPARTMENTS. WHO ARE WE "DEFENDING" OURSELVES AGAINST ANYWAYS? THE RUSSIANS?, THE NORTH KOREANS? THE IRANIANS? THE CHINEE? WELL, IF WE HAVE TO "DEFEND" OURSELVES AGAINST THEM THEN WHY ARE WE DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM? I AGREE, IT'S TIME TO ELIMINATE THE DEBT AND BRING FISCAL SANITY BACK TO THE NATION. LET'S START WITH ITS MOST DISPOSABLE MEMBERS, SHALL WE?

WHAT SENSE DOES IT MAKE TO SUPPORT A MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT THAT VILIFIES OUR TRADING PARTNERS? THEY EITHER ARE OUR ENEMIES OR THEY'RE NOT, RIGHT? LET'S CUT 'EM LOOSE AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. AFTER ALL, WE'VE ALREADY TRIED INVADING THEM AND THAT DIDN'T WORK, DID IT? THE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT IS A BIG BLOATED SOUTHERNER INFESTED MORASS OF STUPIDITY AND MEDIOCRITY. LET'S CUT IT OUT LIKE A TUMOR AND LET THE PATIENT REVIVE; OR, AT LEAST THE PARTS OF THE PATIENT WHICH DESERVE SURVIVAL.

So you also want to re-write all the history so that the Germans "invaded" Britain in WWII?
Sorry, entitled to your own opinion, not your own facts.
After that...look for the word

SEARCH on your web browser.

Type into it "Somolia, the Balkans (Kosovo aka Serbian raid) and Iraqi bombings" or similar "keywords".

The little bunches of groups of "letters" that will then follow, will all have bits of the SAME informative type of writings-called FACTS.

It all goes with the terriroty and pretty NONE of have been immune to it.

I agree The Republican Party is divided.
I don't think cutting The Defense Budget is wise.
There are a lot of programs and entitlements that should be cut.
They are either excessive in spending on what is more than sufficient or frivilous programs that are failures right out of the gate, also repeatedly proven to be so.

The Republicans want to cut too many necessary and needed services to many who are legitimately in need of help and assistance.
The Democrats want to keep spending money we DON'T have on too many unnecessary and superfluous programs and services.
And ALL Americans should be concerned about how their tax dollars are being spent OR squandered.
And IMO, The Government actually KNOWS very little regarding Economics and Managing other peoples' money, OURS!
Yet Democrats want to hand over MORE! when they haven't even proven they can wisely manage what they already pillaged from our pockets!!

Your argument is with your own party, but you're too stupid to realize it.

NAH, YOU'RE FULL OF SHIT. C'MON UP TO DC AND I'LL INTRODUCE YOU AROUND TO THE CROP OF FRESHMAN CONGRESSMEN THAT STARTED THIS WHOLE THING. A GOOFIER BUNCH OF WITLESS ASSHOLE YOU WILL NEVER ENCOUNTER. THE DEPARTMENT OF "DEFENSE," NEE, "WAR", IS A CESSPOOL OF SIMILAR MORONS. WE SPEND MORE ON "DEFENSE" THAN ALL THE NEXT 20 DEVELOPED NATIONS COMBINED. WE SPEND 10 TIMES MORE ON DEFENSE THAN THE TOP ONE HUNDRED DEVELOPING NATIONS. WE CAN TAKE 10 YEARS OFF AND STILL HAVE ALL THE WEAPONS IN THE WORLD TO HAND OFF TO THE MILITIAS, AND WE ALL KNOW THE RIGHT OF THE MILITIAS TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS WILL NOT BE INFRINGED. IF WE HAVE TO ENDURE THAT CRAP WE SHOULD AT LEAST MAKE THEM DO SOME WORK.

McCain ran a sh**ty campaign. Even when people at the rallies tried to tell him that we are tired of this country going socialist, he shut them up! When will the Republican party stop running these old farts just because they think they're rewarding them? I knew from the beginning he was just too old and too old looking to ever be considered a serious contender for President. And his constant smiling and pumping of arms was really off-putting. He just didn't care about US!
Ok first of all the country wasn't going socialist, people and the private sector controlled everything, not the government. Now the government has to have a say/so in everything. Socialism is an economic system in which the production and distribution of goods are controlled substantially by the government rather than by private enterprise, and in which cooperation rather than competition guides economic activity. It is also the Marxist (all know what that is Im sure) theory of the transition between capitalism and communism. All communists are socialists. Believe in redistribution of the wealth as President Obama cleary states he does. This takes money from all the hard workers and gives it to the lazy ones sitting around sucking at the governments teet, like a leech. If anyone comes after what little money I have, oh sirree, it will be a bad day. You dont work for it and are capable of doing so, you dont earn it, then you do not deserve it. Only those who truly arent capable should be given benefits. Back to what you were saying about socialism, get your facts straight. America is now a socialist country cause of Barack Obama. This eventually turns into a communist or dictatorship country. When he gets to that point everyone will see. And i will not say if I am black or white because it doesnt matter anyways. The man isn't black. He is mixed between several races and cultures. His mother was white, father black. To call anyone racist for not liking his different views and ideals is absurd and ridiculous. Thats like saying if your black and didnt vote Obama (only 1%), your a racist cause he is half white right? Yea. Using the race card to intimidate people is so immature, really grow up people. Herman Cain is a true black man, and would have had my vote. So next time you call someone a racist, this goes to anyone, think again, cause its better to shut up then look absolutely ignorant.
