Barack Obama, our next President

""In Virginia, government shutdown already hurting a GOP candidate
Just weeks fro
m an election for governor, Republican Ken Cuccinelli has seen his poll numbers tumble since federal agencies were closed.
""ICHMOND, Va.ó Ken Cuccinelli is running for governor, not Congress, but the Virginia Republican is struggling to dodge the political fallout from Capitol Hill.
His campaign in this crucial battleground state is in danger of becoming the first political casualty of the federal government shutdown, which Americans largely blame on Republicans.
With the election just weeks away, Cuccinelli's poll numbers have tumbled since federal agencies were closed Oct. 1. The conservative state attorney general was already lagging, but he went from within striking distance of a vulnerable Democrat to trailing by 8 to 10 percentage points in three independent polls.
As the candidate, a tea party favorite, seeks to distance himself from fellow activists in Congress, national Republican leaders are worried that a key office they expected to hold in a closely watched election is slipping away.""

The Democrats plan to train people for technical jobs is to fund education. Republican plan is to take money from education, give tax breaks for the wealthy, start a war to protect oil profits and send young Americans off to be killed so that they don't need jobs.
Really.
How long have the Democrats been funding education?
Why is it just now the plan is to actually educate people with this funding?

And, related, what makes you think more money will educate people? We already have the most expensive education system in the world that produces the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world.
Obviously, more money isn't the answer.
Since more money obviously isn't the answer, what is the Democrat plan to educate people? Do the Democrats have a plan to get educational performance back to where it was before the so-called "progressives" led it on a 40+ year decline without a single year of improvement?

To tell the truth, the only thing Democrats have done with education is destroy what was previously the finest education system in the world, and replace it with the most expensive education system in the world that generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world.

The only help Democrats could give to education is stay away from it.
Get rid of the Department of Education. Send that money directly to the states.

Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was extremely critical Monday of the rollout for the Affordable Care Act, saying that the glitches and delays that have beset the health exchange website should cost some officials their jobs.
Gibbs suggested during an apperance on MSNBC that the Obama administration is lucky that the public's attention has been largely consumed with the government shutdown.
"Can you imagine if we weren't obsessed with the shutdown what would be going on on health care?" Gibbs, now an MSNBC analyst, said. "In fact, Republicans probably would be a lot closer to their goal had they not done that."
"This is excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and for the Department of Health and Human Services. This was bungled badly," he continued. "This was not a server problem, just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem. I think it's excruciatingly embarrassing. It's not fatal because there are still many weeks and days to go before the enrollment period closes at the end of March."

"a website architecture problem"
so who hired CGI? fire the idiot.
though Indiana didn't fire the guy who hired the company(Xerox. SNAP, TANF, ect...) that got thrown out of Texas and Indiana for incompetence. the GOP just moved him up the ladder.
Whoever decided to have the Medicare and Medicaid agency design the coordination of various agency websites should be top of the list as that is where the errors are located-missing pages, failure to pass information and data base connections.

The only thing we "hate" is the ideology held by those in power who have a goal of total control by dividing and conquering.
Why would anyone love or embrace that kind of ideology?
Especially here in America?
An educated population would recognize the Democrats as medieval Machiavellian. Democrats don't even know who Machiavelli is, or what his significance is to governmental philosophy. They are so ignorant they don't know what they promote is right out of Machiavelli's letters that were collected and comprise what is known as "The Prince".
What the Democrats are doing is what Machiavelli described as the "first princedom", the initial organization of a totalitarian governmental structure over newly acquired peasantry.
At the time of the founding fathers, these clowns would have been recognized immediately and laughed out of the room. That is the difference between the education level of the people who founded this country, and the people who are running it today. These clowns today would be the laughingstock in a room with any group of educated people 250 years ago.
That is probably why the United States is the laughing stock of the world today. The world today isn't as ignorant as the Democrats need them to be.... neither was the American population 50 years ago, so they fixed that. Look at us today.

Social Security is Welfare

The Origins of Entitlement

By Robert Samuelson - April 9, 2012

WASHINGTON -- Would Franklin Roosevelt approve of Social Security? The question seems absurd. After all, Social Security is considered the New Deal's signature achievement. It distributes nearly $800 billion a year to 56 million retirees, survivors and disabled beneficiaries. On average, retired workers and spouses receive $1,839 dollars a month -- money vital to the well-being of millions. Roosevelt would surely be proud of this, and yet he might also have reservations. Social Security has evolved into something he never intended and actively opposed.

It has become what was then called "the dole" and is now known as "welfare." This forgotten history clarifies why America's budget problems are so intractable.

Why Social Security is welfare

We don't call Social Security "welfare" because it's a pejorative term, and politicians don't want to offend. So their rhetoric classifies Social Security as something else when it isn't. Here is how I define a welfare program: First, it taxes one group to support another group, meaning it's pay-as-you-go and not a contributory scheme where people's own savings pay their later benefits. And second, Congress can constantly alter benefits, reflecting changing needs, economic conditions and politics. Social Security qualifies on both counts.

Nothing in the post proved "millions of republicans are cancelling the membership"...in fact it stated many have joined the Tea Party which is fine by me. Yup, fine by me.
Thanks for the insight!
It's a large country fkface and plenty of Repubs have resigned. Someone right here on this very thread recently put up some numbers from Maryland that I thought were bogus until I checked. The Republican party is shrinking due to death (a given) but more importantly that young folks can't deal with the obstinate, lying, racist bastards who have taken over the party.

Millions was probably on the conservative side by the way.

Since this is the second post like this, it's time someone set some of you straight.

"The income of those living in red states has climbed 4.6% since the recession began in December 2007, a USA TODAY analysis of total increases found. The average income of those living in blue states and swing states saw a much slower increase. The personal income of blue states has increased 0.5%, while in the swing states, income increased 1.4%."

<quoted text> Well I'm not a republican but I have an answer. Get rid of most of these taxes, cut the size of government till you don't have to borrow money to run it, and then cut it some more. Teach the people, all people, to be self reliant and not depend on government. Why do you libtards think the government is the only answer. My guess is 98% of the people of this country could take care of themselves if the government got out of the way. The first move would be get rid of the income tax, medicare tax, SSI tax. But NOOOOOO we can't have people not needing the federal government. Your democrat's tax and spend policies are what is wrong with this country.
So you would have a nation that is a Repub dreamland? No government and no taxes. There are nations like that. They are referred to as 3rd world countries. How is it that America built all the infrastructure in the 1950s and 1960s when the tax rate on the top was 3 times higher than it is now? How was it that a middle class was formed in America if the top had no money because of taxes? Trickle Down Economics destroyed the middle class.

Have to do it. Just to "p" off my little judge-it.

Pelosi had the same Intel as Bush, Cheney, the UN and the CIA.

For her to even suggest Democrats were purposely given different information proves how dumb she must be for being duped in light of the Intel everyone on the planet had - or liberals for believing her.
