You ran away from the point. The combination of Democrats and Democrat RINOs running Congress generates less approval than people who believe in Bigfoot.
Now, why do you think more Americans believe in Bigfoot than approve of the Demcorats and Democrat RINOs running Congress?
17% for Bigfoot.

53% combined.

Wrong stupid! That's exactly how countries prosper. That's how infrastructure is built and maintained. It's how state universities, colleges and schools are built and maintained. That's why we have the vitally important interstate highway system.
The US will never go broke and run out of money. Because we live in a fiat currency system, where the United States government can create an infinite number of dollars at no cost to meet its obligations. A Treasury bill is a promise that the government will give you US dollars–something that the United States government can produce infinitely and at no cost.
You were a history teacher? Really?
You mean like money grows on trees?

This is the most insane, removed from reality, complete bullshit post you've ever posted.

But, let's talk about "fiat money". You obviously don't realize that the value of the "fiat money" is dependent on what everyone else says the money is worth, and not what the printer of the worthless bills says it's worth, right?
If Saudi Arabia says the dollar is worth nothing, and Obama says it's worth everything, how much oil do you think one of Obama's dollars will buy? How much food do you think it will buy? The truth is, if everyone else says the dollar is worthless, it's worthless regardless of what Obama says it's worth.
You really need a reality check.

And, another thing. The entire world knows Obama and this administration are pathological liars. Who in the world will belileve any promise they make, like "we'll pay you back"? You can bet anyone loaning the United States any money today is demanding payment in gold. Which brings us to another question:
Do you think there's any gold left in the Federal Reserve or Fort Knox? Or, has all of it already been stolen by this government?

Now Republicans Have to Prove They Can Do Better Than Obamacare
On Jan. 1, the moment arrived that conservatives had been dreading: Obamacare took effect. Last year’s Republican freakout and government shutdown was a desperate, doomed, Hail Mary attempt to stave this off. It failed, and now a number of important changes have taken place: Insurance companies can’t deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions or charge them higher rates. There’s a limit to how much they can charge the elderly. Kids can stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26. Millions of people—nobody’s sure yet how many millions—now have health insurance because of Obamacare. This unalterably changes the political landscape, even if a lot of Republicans haven’t yet come to terms with that fact.
One reason so many Republicans fought so bitterly against the health-care law and its implementation was the recognition that once a social benefit or government guarantee is bestowed, it’s almost impossible to revoke. Republicans made two big strategic bets about stopping Obamacare, both of which failed. The first was the decision not to participate in shaping the policy—the choice to oppose and obstruct the bill at every turn in hopes of killing it, rather than steer it in a more conservative direction. As former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum noted at the time (in a column that cost him his job at the American Enterprise Institute and basically got him drummed out of the conservative movement), this turned out to be a disastrous decision—a Republican “Waterloo,” in Frum’s famous phrase.
The second big strategic bet was that Obamacare could still be stopped, even after it was signed into law, by stopping Obama himself from winning a second term. If Obama lost his bid for reelection, this line of thinking went, then his signature policy would come to be seen as a failure that cost him the White House and thus irredeemably tainted. Then it could be repealed or drastically scaled back. That’s why Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said in 2010, after Obamacare was law, that the “single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” It’s why McConnell made himself the architect of the Republican strategy to achieve this—but that strategy ultimately failed.
Now that the law and its full range of benefits have taken effect, the idea that it can be repealed is folly. But conservatives such as the ones behind this new ad from the YG Network (“YG” stands for “young guns”), a 501c(4), seem not to recognize this new reality.
The ad simply dumps on the law, suggesting that it’s terrible and unfair—but despite the YG Network’s claim to support “conservative center-right policies,” doesn’t offer any alternatives. The fact is that even if Republicans win the White House and both chambers of Congress in 2016, they won’t dare strip benefits from what, by that point, will probably be upward of 10 million people. The best they can hope for is to be able to change the law in a way that’s more amenable to conservative ideals, as Frum was counseling them to do four years ago. What changed on Jan. 1 is that the “repeal” crowd became obsolete. The new coin of the realm for conservatives is coming up with a viable-seeming alternative to Obamacare that allows for the reality that Republicans are never going to strip millions of people of their health insurance. That’s what matters now.

What you call "radical right" is jsut those who believe in the Constitution. The real radicals are those in government who are in open rebelliion against the Constitution and attempting to end the existence of the Constitutional republic.
yes, those radical right republicans were in great support of the parts of the Patriot Act you mentioned...

we all saw what happened in the last election cycle because of these far righ wingnuts...they are the ones killing the GOP.

Al Qaeda is like lymphatic cancer. It's possible to remove its origin but it spreads throughout the body through the lymph nodes and does much more harm.

Obama is like a physician telling a patient he decimated the origin of their cancer without mentioning it has spread throughout their body.

Kind of an important omission.

I recall Congress having a 6% approval rating, moron. More people believe in Bigfoot than think the Democrats and Democrat RINOs are doing a good job in Congress, idiot.
And I don't believe 17 percent believe Bigfoot lives. I'd believe less than 10 percent, about the same that think Marxist communism is a viable ideology.

I can't believe you let this idiot get away with his ignorance concerning geothermal heating systems.

We've been here before, and he said the same stupid stuff, until he was laughed off the subject and the thread for a few days.

This is as stupid as his 'no shutdown' claim. Or 'bigfoot'. And you let it go by. Shame on you.

Why do you let him off with the stupid nonsense 'all the heat will be sucked out of the ground, leaving the last system installed with no usable ground heat.'

That's insane, yet you let it go without comment. Why??

When people object to the GOP, they're objecting to what the GOP RINO leadership is doing, you moron.
The combined Democrat and Democrat RINO leadership generates less support than believers in Bigfoot.

I never mentioned the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act never authorized the unconstitutional syping on the general population like the Democrats are doing today.

You're just pretending to be this stupid, right?
It's 9/12. You're the president. What do you do?
Do you:
1) Surrender to the Islamist terrorists? Or;
2) Do the Bill Clinton thing and lob a few cruise missiles into their general direction? Or;
3) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets, and somehow you would expect something different to happen? Or;
4) You do something different that gives the greatest chance of kicking the shit out of the Arab Islamist terrorists that attacked the United States.
If your answer is 4) do something different to give us a better chance of kicking the shit out of the Arab terrorists, what would you do?

can't stop them from voting. you can try, but you'll just piss them off and they'll do like last time and stand in line to vote for 12 hours if need be just so they can give the losers the middle finger.

that's an image i can cherish. a 90 year old black woman sticking it to a fat cat tea party sloth.
