Barack Obama, our next President

So you don't think Democrats ever lose elections or the Congress? Republicans didn't treat them like they were irrelevant and passed a major partisan law without giving them any input or having one of them on board. That has never happened - at least not to my knowledge and I've been following politics for four decades now.
I don't even recall the present bullying ever being the case by former Democrats who were elected in the past.
How old are you anyway? Because I can assure you, we are NOT in Kansas anymore.
So Your theory is " it's never been done before so, that makes it illegal " even though the drafting &, signing of the ACA were done by the letter of the law! Is that what you're saying? Are you saying that you're founding fathers had it wrong when they constructed each body of gov't &, the power it holds? You're whining & making excuses for the lack of America's supporting your side &, their " rich white first" ideology. It took a while but, the American population is starting to see, equality is better for this country, not the myth of equality. In all fairness, reading minorities equal will solve both the crime rate &, unemployment problems. For Christ sake, you people don't even want to raise the minimum wage, knowing that each time it's been done, the economy has prospered as a result!

Reneging on its debt obligations would make the U.S. the first major Western government to default since Nazi Germany 80 years ago.
Germany unilaterally ceased payments on long-term borrowings on May 6, 1933, three months after Adolf Hitler was installed as Chancellor. The default helped cement Hitler’s power base following years of political instability as the Weimar Republic struggled with its crushing debts.

Failure by the world’s biggest economy to pay its debt in an interconnected, globalized world risks an array of devastating consequences that could lay waste to stock markets from Brazil to Zurich. Photographer: Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg
“These are generally catastrophic economic events,” said Professor Eugene N. White, an economics historian at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.“There is no happy ending.”
The debt reparations piled onto Germany, which in 1913 was the world’s third-biggest economy, sparked the hyperinflation, borrowings and political deadlock that brought the Nazis to power, and the default. It shows how excessive debt has capricious results, such as the civil war and despotism that ravaged Florence after England’s Edward III refused to pay his obligations from the city-state’s banks in 1339, and the Revolution of 1789 that followed the French Crown’s defaults in 1770 and 1788.
Failure by the world’s biggest economy to pay its debt in an interconnected, globalized world risks an array of devastating consequences that could lay waste to stock markets from Brazil to Zurich and bring the $5 trillion market in Treasury-backed loans to a halt. Borrowing costs would soar, the dollar’s role as the world’s reserve currency would be in doubt and the U.S. and world economies would risk plunging into recession -- and potentially depression.
Members of the Tea Party should be soooo proud of themselves for bringing America to its knees. NOT. If this was the old west, the universal cry would be "Hang 'em high"!

I would like the states to have full control over these issues and I would like to see Fed taxes reduced with States obtaining more.
I would have responded to him but sometimes I've just dealt with his dumb ass enough. My solution:$0.20 consumption tax. No other taxes. None! Split this way.$0.12 local,$0.07 state, and $0.03 federal. If you can't run the three different governments with the money they receive then cut the government till you can. Then cut it some more. We need to get back to the way the founders envisioned. The most power at the local level. Local politicians are more reachable by the people.

<quoted text> (1) Anybody over 65 nothing would change. On a sliding scale people would be encouraged to save the tax money now being removed from their paycheck now. Most people couldn't tell you how much is removed from their paycheck so they wouldn't miss it anyway. With people saving at least a third of their paycheck every pay period you would have to get rid of the estate tax. One of the biggest problems is the democrat/progressives need to confiscate wealth. If the people are no longer poor why would they need them. I may go into this more later.
(2)The truly disabled will always be taken care of. Notice I said truly disabled.
(3) Unemployment is due to the tax and other policies of the government. Getting the government off the backs of small business and corporation will free them to do what they do. Grow and prosper. New businesses will spring up. Government is the problem. Not the solution.
(4) Your dislike of the Fair Tax is irrational. You would stop the poor people being lifted out of poverty because some rich guy might make a dollar. Just remember this. What hurts the big guy hurts the small guy more. With the fair tax the US would become the largest tax haven in the world. Money would flow here in the billions. We would have to import a million people a year to keep up with job growth.
So what happens when their money runs out? Do they starve on the street? Maybe a bad investment. Maybe a medical emergency wipes them out.

As you take away SS & Medicare funding in your sliding scale, how do you fund those on SS & Medicare? You just took that funding & put it into some one's account.

Your fairtax s a dream made up by rich people & corporations. You just gave them huge tax breaks. Who makes up for those loses?

A new HuffPost/YouGov poll shows that both sides are losing as far as public opinion on who's responsible.
According to the survey, 25% of Americans think the two sides are equally responsible for the government shutdown, while 36% place more blame on Republicans in Congress and 33% place more blame on President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/05/gove...
That's only a 3% margin and Obama's approval is in the tank at 37%.
Probably not a good idea to be too confident too soon.
Sounds far more like you are whistling as you pass the cemetery again.The top always gets blamed more,but anyone with an IQ over most baggers know just who the real culprits are. Thats an easy call. except of course you morons.

Since you seem so proud of your very misleading stats. How about the real ones..DUMBO.
States receiving the most in federal spending per dollar of federal taxes paid are as follows.
1 D.C.$6.17 2 N. Dakota $2.03 3 N Mexico $1.89 4 Mississippi $1.84 5 Alaska $1.82 6 W.Va.$1.74 7 Montana $1.64 8 Alabama $1.61 9 S. Dakota $1.59 10 Arkansas $1.53.
Now the states that receive the least in federal spending per dollar of federal taxes paid. 1 N Jersey $0.62 2 Connecticut $0.64 3 N Hampshire $0.68 4 Nevada $ 0.73 5 Illinois $ 077 6 Colorado $0.79 7 Massachusetts $0.79 8 Calif.$0.81 9 New York $0.81.... 79% of the states receiving the least spending per dollar of federal taxes paid are "BLUE" states.

Duck and run from the truth. Typical Republican...when cornered by truth, resort to personal attacks.

Of course truckers work for a living. That is the very reason everyone predicted the protest would be a BUST.

FACT: The "Great Big Trucker Siege of Washington DC" touted by Republicans as a massive attack against Obama policies was a BUST and Republicans, once again, are left with egg on their face.

There are no poor people in the United States. There are more beds and meals waiting than there are homeless.
If you don't want to be what you call "poor", do these things:
1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job and show up for work every day on time.
5) Do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
If you do the above 5 things, you will never be what you call "poor". You will have everything you're trying to take from the people who did the above 5 things.
What is needed is a community organizer that can lead people to do the above 5 things and become a successful part of the economy.
Offhand, I can't think of anyone who has done that.

Most on the right pretended to love old Herman Cain, then when he fell out of favor he was never heard from again. Proving only that the right has absolutely no allegiance but to power and greed. The Independents are the ones that win election and the baggers are losing bad there. Carol spend most of her day whistling and hoping.

I agree, bring control back to the local level.

I am fed up with the federal government thinking all spending bills are a reward system for those who give to their party.
