Libtards for Obama go to trail.
"The trial is underway for a former Democratic official and a Board of Elections worker who are accused of being part of a plot that has raised questions over whether President Obama's campaign -- when he was a candidate in 2008 -- submitted enough legitimate signatures to have legally qualified for the presidential primary ballot.
The two face charges of orchestrating an illegal scheme to fake the petitions that enabled then-candidates Obama, and Hillary Clinton, to qualify for the race in Indiana."
"Two former Board of Elections officials have already pleaded guilty to charges related to the scheme and could testify against Morgan and Blythe."
""That's not my signature," Charity Rorie, a mother of four, told Fox News when showed the Obama petition with her name and signature. She said it "absolutely" was a fake."

These people were needed because the New Black Panthers were already busy. They were standing outside voting precincts intimidating voters.

If a conservative even had a HINT of this crap in his background, you libs would be going insane. It's that old liberal double standard. With Obama's very questionalbe past, if he had been white, he wouldn't have even been ASKED to speak at the DNC much less gotten the nomination later. You know it and so does everyone else. He has been given a blanket pass because he is black. No other reason. Social experiement.

<quoted text>I voted for Obama and have never viewed him as my God. I am also leaning more and more towards socialism the older I get. I think we are our brothers keeper. I feel it's our place to do for others that are to ignorant to do for themselves. Everyone is not blessed with the proper upbringing that it requires to do for themselves. To turn our back on them or to look down on them is not the American and certainly not the Christian thing to do.
Just how long should we care for these unfortunate people. I Assume that most can use a shovel and a pick or have any ability to do something but sit on their butts with their hands out. So Just how long would Jesus keep feeding them without them learning how to fish to feed themselves?
It isn't that conservatives aren't compassionate. It is because we see that in most cases we are being taken for a sucker, and our tax dollars and donations are being abused by lazy people. I have no problem helping the down and out. But to just throw money to people that know how to vote for the man that will give them the most benefits for the rest of their lives is wrong. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.
If you want to work hard and take away from your family to give to others that are sitting on their butt doing dope, drinking beer and having sex all the time to get bigger welfare checks than go for it. I don't.

"Shocking Footage: Americans Ordered Out Of Homes At Gunpoint By SWAT teams"
"The video, shot by a resident from their own house across the street, shows police barking orders at men and women as they order them at gunpoint to identify themselves, put their hands on their heads, and get out of their own home. They are then ordered to run down the street to be further frisked by police as scores of armed militarized cops look on."
http://www.infowars.com/shocking-footage-amer...
I mentioned what I thought of this martial law that was perpetrated on America in a original post "What The Media Won't Tell You". No one seemed interested as usual as they would rather have so called security over their Constitutional rights. The news media and the government propaganda machine has people so scared that they are willing to give up all their rights just to capture a 19 year old terrorist kid. The government just declared martial law to catch one man. The government just shut down a huge American city. Doesn't anyone but you and me understand the implications of this? The government just declared martial law and got away with it!

You are correct again!! Jesus would starve the poor on a daily basis, preferring not to help them since they were so lazy, just like a certain group wants to do today. He had no compassion for others who did not have the tools to prosper on their own, and was strictly for what was good for him, just like a certain group does today. He had no problem when bankers (moneychangers) overcharged the citizens of the time, they deserved to be taken advantage of and making rules to prevent that is bad, the same as a certain group does today. The group is mainly southern based and consider themselves to be religious. How can that be when our Savior was so liberal on social issues, and he surely had DARK skin like a certain hated leader does today, oh my.
Which reincarnation of the Gospel do you prefer? Which Christian faith do you follow, are you a member of the largest Christian faith in the world, Catholic? Or one of the smaller Christian faiths like Evangelical.
Just curious, whatever you believe is a personal issue and really no one else’s business. I am sure you will at least agree with that.

You see that's just it.
I have read the Bible.
Jesus's words - not mine:
Peacemaking, not War Making:
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.[Matthew 5:9]
Resist
not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.[Matthew 5:39]
I say unto you, Love your
enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despite-fully use you, and persecute
you; [Matthew 5:44]
Crime and Punishment:
If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to cast a stone at her.[John 8:7]
Do not judge, lest
you too be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be measured to
you.[Matthew 7:1 & 2.]
Justice:
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.[Matthew 5:6]
Blessed are the
merciful: for they shall obtain mercy [Matthew 5:7]
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your
trespasses.[Matthew 6:15]
Corporate Greed and the Religion of Wealth:
In the temple courts [Jesus] found men selling cattle, sheep and doves and other
sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle;
he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.[John 2:14 & 15.]
Watch out! Be on your guard against
all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.[Luke 12.15.]
Truly, I say unto you, it will
be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.[Matthew 19:23]
Paying Taxes & Separation of Church & State:
Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the
things that are God's.[Matthew 22:21]
Community: Love your neighbor as yourself..[Matthew 22:39]
So in everything, do to others as you would have them do to you.
[Matthew 7:12.]
If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.
[Matthew 19:21]
Equality & Social Programs:
But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed,
because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.[Luke 14:13 &14.]
Public Prayer & Displays of Faith:
And when thou pray, thou shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in
the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou pray, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret…
[Matthew 6:6 & 7]
Strict Enforcement of Religious Laws:
If any of you has a son or a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take
hold of it and lift it out?[Matthew 12:11]

For I was hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me water;
I was a stranger and you invited me into your homes; naked and you clothed me; sick and in prison, and you visited me."
Then these righteous ones will reply, "Sir, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you anything to drink? Or a stranger, and help you? Or naked, and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?"
And I, the King, will tell them, "When you did it to these my brothers you were doing it to me!"
Then I will turn to those on my left and say, "Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons.
For I was hungry and you wouldn't feed me; thirsty, and you wouldn't give me anything to drink; a stranger, and you refused me hospitality; naked, and you wouldn't clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn't visit me."
Then they will reply, "Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?"
And I will answer, "When you refused to help the least of these my brothers, you were refusing help to me." And they shall go away into eternal punishment; but the righteous into everlasting life."
Now that's a Social Security loving, Medicare loving, Medicaid loving, Food Stamp loving, Free School Lunch loving, card carrying ACLU bleeding heart leeeeeberal if there ever was one.
Did you ever think about reading the New Testament and actually understanding what it says instead of just picking phrases out and editing them to suit your warped thinking? There are whole stories being told from the beginning to the end, which are meant to be taken in as something meaningful and as common sense lessons to be learned. Not to pick out parts of it here and there.

Meet the 28-Year-Old Grad Student Who Just Shook the Global Austerity Movement
By Kevin Roose
4/18/13 at 4:29 PM
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2013/04/...

Most Ph.D. students spend their days reading esoteric books and stressing out about the tenure-track job market. Thomas Herndon, a 28-year-old economics grad student at UMass Amherst, just used part of his spring semester to shake the intellectual foundation of the global austerity movement.

Herndon became instantly famous in nerdy economics circles this week as the lead author of a recent paper, "Does High Public Debt Consistently Stifle Economic Growth? A Critique of Reinhart and Rogoff," that took aim at a massively influential study by two Harvard professors named Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff. Herndon found some hidden errors in Reinhart and Rogoff's data set, then calmly took the entire study out back and slaughtered it. Herndon's takedown — which first appeared in a Mike Konczal post that crashed its host site with traffic — was an immediate sensation. It was cited by prominent anti-austerians like Paul Krugman, spoken about by incoming Bank of England governor Mark Carney, and mentioned on CNBC and several other news outlets as proof that the pro-austerity movement is based, at least in part, on bogus math....

I saw the interview with him. He is a very young man and has very little real life wisdom.
His basic theory is to spend your way out of a depression. If that works then why don't you and I do that, and I bet we go bankrupt very quickly. He wants the countries to keep printing money and spending it to keep the economy up. He says that cutting spending just causes more job loses and a weaker economy.
He is probably correct about that but I wonder just how long a country can keep printing money and overspending before it actually collapses. It might be a no win situation either way. The moral of the story is not to let your country spend more than it takes in and live within a budget. This country has had no budget in 4 years. Hummm, could that be a problem? I wonder what he would say about that?
Since I am not an economic professor all these people can claim anything and it is probably just smoke and mirrors. None of these so called experts agree. If any of them are correct then why hasn't anything worked? All I know is old fashioned economics such as make a budget and live within your means has worked since almost the beginning of man. Common sense and trial and error over centuries have proven it that to be true.
Perhaps the only way out is total economic collapse, hurt for awhile, and start over. That is how it will end for sure if we keep spending more than we take in to run this country.

Sorry, but you can't separate one from the other, Freedon of Reilgion and Freedom from Religion are two sides of the same coin.
When the Supreme Court stopped the reading of daily devotionals over the PA System in my elementary school it did not prohibit public worship, Christians still had numerous churches to attend, but it did disentangle the state from promoting religion.
Perhaps you could explain how public worship is currently prohibited, because I see many doezens of churches within our small community, I see street corner preachers hawking their wares, I see people praying in public, I see the open display of religion on private property during religious holidays, I see religious opinions expressed in the local paper and on public message boards like this.
It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are 20 gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Danbury Baptists
Very good statements indeed. These christians can't agree on many things themselves but want all of us to accept their christ. This is one of the reasons you could'nt buy alcohol on sundays and many would prevent all of us from buying liquor anytime. Another reason they draw all of us into war ,to fight muslims who think differenly about God. They are always trying to be fixers to almost all countries with our tax dollars. Let them worship the way they want and leave the rest of us the hell alone. These big churches have been collecting billions of dollars every year and don't have to pay taxes. They buy all kinds of real estate investment property and yet they claim to be non-profit BS! This country needs a lot of fixing up itself before it can inspire other countries to help themselves.

See you can't explain romney and give some intelligent defining answers to why he should be president. Come on now we are all waiting! You republicans are just pissed we all had to rebuke him from the Whitehouse. By the way the Stock Market has hit record highs, Obama is drawing down troops in Afganistan, cutting a massive bloated defence down to a right size and I could go on and on. All this will bring the deficits down.

Jefferson was pretty clear in his views on a large and intrusive government:

"A wise and frugal Government,... shall leave them free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government...."

Aggie, you are 100% correct on this point. Great post! I totally agree. The resistance to government is so exhausting that I wouldn't wish it on anybody in their right mind. If you are in your right mind when you start, you won't be when you finish. I have no idea how I have any sanity left, if I do.
I have never worked so focussed on a task, for so long with such little results in my life. I earned a graduate degree faster then this. It cost less and I had one piece of paper, not paper so heavy I can't carry it. Our government has so many paper trails, there is no wonder we get nothing done. We are one layered mess.

While it may be easy to understand when we equate government spending to household spending, the reality is that they are not alike at all.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deficit_spending
Government deficit spending is a central point of controversy in economics, with prominent economists holding differing views.[1] The "mainstream economics" position is that deficit spending is desirable and necessary as part of countercyclical fiscal policy, but that there should not be a structural deficit: run deficits during recessions to compensate for the shortfall in aggregate demand, but run surpluses in boom times so that there is no net deficit over an economic cycle, i.e., only run cyclical deficits. This is derived from Keynesian economics, and gained acceptance (especially in the Anglo-Saxon world) during the period between the Great Depression in the 1930s and post-WWII in the 1950s.

That position is attacked from both sides – advocates of sound finance argue that deficit spending is always bad policy, while some Post-Keynesian economists, particularly Chartalists, argue that deficit spending is necessary, and not only for fiscal stimulus.

Keynesian Effect
Following John Maynard Keynes, many economists recommend deficit spending to moderate or end a recession, especially a severe one. When the economy has high unemployment, an increase in government purchases creates a market for business output, creating income and encouraging increases in consumer spending, which creates further increases in the demand for business output.(This is the multiplier effect). This raises the real gross domestic product (GDP) and the employment of labour, and if all else is constant, lowers the unemployment rate.(The connection between demand for GDP and unemployment is called Okun's Law.)

The increased size of the market, due to government deficits, can further stimulate the economy by raising business profitability and spurring optimism, which encourages private fixed investment in factories, machines, and the like to rise. This accelerator effect stimulates demand further and encourages rising employment. Increase in government payroll has been shown to depress the economy in the long run.[citation needed]

Similarly, running a government surplus or reducing its deficit reduces consumer and business spending and raises unemployment. This can lower the inflation rate. Any use of the government deficit to steer the macro-economy is called fiscal policy.

A deficit does not simply stimulate demand. If private investment is stimulated, that increases the ability of the economy to supply output in the long run. Also, if the government's deficit is spent on such things as infrastructure, basic research, public health, and education, that can also increase potential output in the long run. Finally, the high demand that a government deficit provides may actually allow greater growth of potential supply, following Verdoorn's Law.

There is, however, a danger that deficit spending may create inflation - or encourage existing inflation to persist.(In the United States, this is seen most clearly when Vietnam-war era deficits encouraged inflation.) This is especially true at low unemployment rates (say, below 4% unemployment in the U.S.)....

Jefferson was a product of his time, there is no way to know how he would react to the demands and problems faced by subsequent administrations. The country and problems faced by the United States of 1803 was not the country of 1853, 1883, 1933, 1963, or 2013. Whether Jefferson would stand firm in his beliefs when facing new challenges is purely conjecture.

You are a TROLL. You showed your complete ignorance by stating that you were leaving this forum because we were all too dumb for you. Well, HERE YOU ARE! lol You are such a tool. You don't deserve any serious consideration.
What does Romney have to do with ANYTHING? Any statments you make in regards to the type of president he would have been is simply speculation. You have no IDEA the kind of president he would have been. But, one thing is for SURE. YOU voted TWICE for an individual who won't even condemn the members of al Quida. He was asked his opinion of al Quida and he totally skirted the question. Never DID answer it. You think you are so intelligent when in reality you are supported and participating in systematically dismantling this country. Guess what? Democratic Senator Bachus has suddenly decided that he isn't running for reelection. Wonder why? Could it be that a couple of weeks ago he warned that instating Obamacare was going to be a TRAINWRECK? Heck! He helped craft the legislation for Obamacare. ALSO, he broke ranks with fellow democrats and didn't support more background checks for those purchasing guns. The Obama Mean Machine kicked in and now Bachus is OUT after this term. You ignorant liberals are too stupid to see what you are going. Move on, TROLL.
