Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Thank you for being one of the few who will call it what it is: Communism.
It may not have reached gulag proportions yet, but the ideology driving this country, the intolerance, the propaganda and the demonizing of traditional American values and those who hold them among some of the most powerful is plain and simple communism.
Until more call it what it is, we're going to continue to dance around it while the subversion grows and the brainwashing succeeds until it's too late.
Patriots are now being called "domestic terrorists". It doesn't get any more "us against them" than that.
If the ACA were Communism then it wouldn't be dependent on the private sector insurance industry to provide coverage STUPID!
You right wingers are the most intolerant bunch around. Nobody's demonizing your so called "traditional values" we're demonizing discrimination based on your narrow beliefs.

Thankfully, the brainwashed are outnumbered in all polls.
Delusional much Carol? Let's take a look at the polls on some issues;
Marriage equality: Half of all Americans believe that gay men and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll in which a large majority also said businesses should not be able to deny serving gays for religious reasons.
Fifty percent say the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection gives gays the right to marry, while 41 percent say it does not. Beyond the constitutional questions, a record-high 59 percent say they support same-sex marriage, while 34 percent are opposed, the widest margin tracked in Post-ABC polling.
Minimum wage: On minimum wage, voters support raising the federally mandated minimum, 72 percent to 27 percent, including a majority of Republicans, who support it 52 percent to 45 percent, according to a Quinnipiac poll.
Gun laws: An April 2013 Gallup Poll found that 65 percent Americans wanted the U.S. Senate to pass a gun safety law which would have expanded background checks for gun purchases. Prior to the measure failing in the Senate, Gallup reported that support for expanded background checks was as high as 90 percent.
And finally your dreaded single payer health coverage:
Polls indicating majority support for single-payer
…………………………For single-payer……..Opposed to single-payer
General public: Polls in which support is 60 percent or higher
Harvard University/Harris (1988)(a)……………………61%…………..not asked

People who think like you are responsible for spreading falsehoods about anyone who resists brainwashing by generalizing and demonizing on a blanket scale.
You should try resisting it sometime. Would do you a world of good. And would sure do the country a world of good.
Still delusional Carol? There's medications for that. Let's go over just some of the lies told on your precious Fox;
Fox News anchor Bret Baier erroneously claimed that low income Americans not covered by the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) must pay the law's penalty for not having health insurance despite the ACA's explicit exemption for those individuals.
Hannity Hyped RNC’s Doctored Audio of Supreme Court Arguments. Hannity uncritically aired a Republican National Committee (RNC) ad that used audio from Supreme Court oral arguments to attack health care reform — but the audio used in the ad was dishonestly edited.
Hannity Distorted CBO Data to Attack Obama. Hannity claimed that a January 2012 Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report showed that if Obama were to win a second term, taxes would “go up 30 percent.” In fact, the report only stated that taxes would increase at such a rate if all the Bush tax cuts were allowed to expire.
Hannity Falsely Claimed a White House Adviser “Advocated Compulsory Abortion.” Hannity claimed that White House science and technology adviser John Holdren “advocated compulsory abortion” and sterilization. PolitiFact had previously rated a similar claim — made months earlier by Fox News’ Glenn Beck —“pants on fire” false.
Hannity Ignored Overwhelming Evidence to Repeatedly Claim Obama’s Policies Have Not Helped Improve the Economy. Hannity has repeatedly claimed that President Obama’s policies have not improved the economy. In fact, numerous economists and independent analysts have noted that many of Obama’s policy achievements, such as the stimulus, have benefited the economy: GDP is growing rather than contracting as it was at the end of 2008, and the economy has added millions of jobs.
In a speech to supporters in Virginia, Obama praised the hard work of individuals and businesses while also noting the collective value of American investment in economic prosperity. So Fox News plucked an out-of-context soundbite from the speech that said “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.” What Fox deliberately left out was that Obama was referring to public services like teachers and police, and to infrastructure like roads and bridges that contribute to the success of all businesses. It’s a position that Romney himself has taken.
So who's being brainwashed?

Fox host hammers his own network on live TV for silence following Cliven Bundy’s racist rant

Since leaving CNN for Fox News, Kurtz has often turned a blind eye and refused to covered his employer, but the omission of any reporting on Bundy all day was so egregious that it could not be ignored on his weekly show.

“In my view, Fox News fell seriously short on this story on Thursday,” Kurtz noted.“All day long until Special Report at 6 p.m. ET, there was virtually no mention of these racist remarks by Cliven Bundy when everybody else was covering it.”

“And I think that to ignore a major story that was on the front page of The New York Times at a time when the network — among others — had devoted a lot of time to covering this story and to building up Cliven Bundy, I think that gives ammunition to Fox’s detractors,” he added.

The Washington Post‘s Dana Milbank saluted Kurtz’“manhood” for having the courage to take on his own network in this case.

“This isn’t tea party, this is anarchy, and I think people jumped into that without thinking of where that was going to take them,” Milbank explained.
