Some TEA Party Republicans on this board think that Newt would give Obama a hard time in a debate, but you might suggest to them that the moderator might ask the two participant "what they think of the social role of women"?

I think those Republicans would have very little that they woud want to say, and they would be as quiet as possible!

20 thousand "Occupy" demonstratorts in Moscow, more in St. Petersberg, Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad), Minsk, and more.

"We" are all around the world, and we have the Internet to communicate with each other.

WE are going to win, because politicians all over the world are going to do as we wish, or they are going to find themselves unemployed!

You know, some of the rulings of the Supreme Court of the United States I object to, but to AMEND the Constitution to say that Corporations are NOT people, than all the Supreme Court may do is agree with the Amendment!

Now, how about a Constitution Convention to do just that?!

The Supreme Court has ruled that a corporation is a "person," and it may contribute to a politician equally as the person may.

The decision was not unanomyous, with all of the Republican members voting for the corporations.

The only way in which this may be changed now, is through an Amendment to the Constitution.

However, most of the members of Congress are literally "owned" by the many corporations, so it will never happen this was; the only way to achieve this Amendment is through a Constitutional Convention.

We can start the process right here in Horry County, and the local Occupy group may do just this!!!

Super Tuesday is tomorrow, and over 400 delegates are at stake.

If Romney doesn't get more than half of them, I believe it will be a tied up convention!

What is Ginghrich staying in the presidential race for when he know he will never win?

There is just one intelligent answer to that question, and it is not that his ego won't let him as the press has been saying.

Instead, it is - I believe - that he wants the nomination for the Vice Presidency; and he can get it if he gains enough delegates so that no one wins the nomination for presdent on the first ballot.

Should this happens, and it appears very likely that it will, he may then offer his support and delegates to Santorum in exchange for Santorum's selecting him for the Vice President's position!

We will see.

I was born very early in 1945 as an only child to a mother who was a school teacher, and to a father who was the Supervisor for Elementary Education for a large industrial northern state.

I was the very oldest student in most of my classes - 20+ years for my academic doctoral degree – and went to the campus school of the premier state university system from grades 7 through grade12.

I now have an academic doctoral degree, but I graduated 58th out of 62 students in high school! My “friends” went to Harvard, Yale, McGill, Cornell, Hamilton, Columbia, and so on. As a result, I thought I was rather unintelligent!

I went to small state university college in northern New York State, and only three girls didn’t go to a four year college because they got married instead.

The year I graduated from high school was 1963, and l had learned that the United States was the very best country in the whole-wide world, and for many reasons: from its scientific advancements, to its cherished human rights!

Things have radically and dramatically changed in this country since then, however. For example: from being first in the world in education in 1973, we are now 20 something and headed lower. We have no magnet trains going at over 200 mph, but Brazil, Europe, and Japan do; we are not rapidly developing alternative fuels, but many other countries have; and I can go on and on like this!

What has happened in this country to allow this to happen to US?

American corporations have just been ruled by the United States Supreme Court – by a 4 to 3 decision – to be considered as a “person” when their monetary contributions to a person’s campaign is considered!

In other words, corporations almost “own” the federal legislators now, but they will completely “own” their vote in the future by heavily controlling the money they receive for their election, or their re-election, bids! And by far most of the designated politicians are Republicans; and most of the votes voting for “Citizens United” on the Supreme Court were Republican Presidential nominees, as well!

Occupy Wall Street, or just plain “Occupy,” is attempting to have the House of Representatives start a Constitutional Amendment which would prohibit this unethical, this unfair, and hopefully in the future, this “Illegal” action from taking place!

Hopefully you will want this to happen as well, and then you will become somewhat involved in the rapidly growing “Occupy” movement in your local area!

Ohh, ohh, ohh,,,,,

The opposition to Romney - Santoum, Gingrich, and Paul - is within about 50 delegates of Romney, and closing rather rapidly.

I believe more than ever that it will be an open convention, and then Sister Sarah will ultimately be given the Republican Ding-bat nomination for President!!!

Santorum is being encouraged to quit the primaries by some (regular) Republicans.

He will never win, you see.

Gingrich is being encourage to do the same thing, and then Romney will win the nomination.

I don't think that this is going to happen, however.

Both Gingrich and Santorum don't want Romney to win the nomination, because he is not in favor of the TEA Party mandates - today, anyway!!!

I believe they want the convention to go to a second ballot at least, and then "Sister Sarah" of the TEA Party will land the nomination!

We will see!

There are really two political parties within the Republican Party: the regular Republicans, and then there are the TEA Party people.

Each needs the support of the other to win an election against a Democrat, and this is why the Republican Presidential Primaries continue to go on and on, when it is very clear now that Gingrich and/or Santorum can no longer win on the first ballot.

They may be able to stop Romney from winning on the first ballot, however, and therefore they will send the Convention into a second - and more - ballot.

Now many of the delegates who are required by law to vote for Romney on the first ballot, they are Ding-bat TEA party people, therefore on the second ballot they will vote for a TEA Party person.

I think that this will happen, and I also think that this new person will be "Sister Sarah"!

No way!

Cheney just got a heart for the first time in his life.

And I hope he doesn't have his first heart attack when he stares at himself in the mirrow!!!

I firmly believe that there are two distinctly different factions of the same Republican Party, but they are really presently of the same political party for the sake of convenience only, and for the actual voting strength it gives to each candidate!

When it comes time to run against President Obama in November, however, I believe that many of the Republican voters are either going to sit home and aren’t going to vote at all, or else they are going to vote for Obama and the rest of the Democrats running in their statewide Congressional Districts.

My reasoning is as follows:

Former Governor Romney is what is known today as a “Regular Republican.” He was the past Governor of the state of Massachusetts, arguably the most “liberal” state in the United States.

He has had to dramatically alter his position on a whole host of issues to vie successfully for the Republican nomination for President, most notably:“Obanacare” is really Romney’s plan for nationalized health care a few years ago, but now he – like Santorum currently is – is totally against it!

Santorum, however, is a very different breed of cat from Romney! He, I believe, is actually to the Far Right of most of the other “TEA Party” politicians!

He is dead set against most - if not all - forms of birth control for anyone - man or woman - and the magnanimous size of his family shows it. He is against Social Security, and he would end it if he could. Governmental control of health care – just forget it; and he agrees with Romney, that we need a mightier military, but unlike Romney, not to fight the Soviet Union with! He would fight the Arabs, instead.

Then there in Gingrich!“What is he staying in the race for?” most news broadcasters say.“He can’t win,” they continue, and they are correct!

The final delegate count may be so close for Romney that Gingrich’s few delegates would put him “over the top,” and Gingrich knows this very well. Gingrich, however, despises immensely the very ground that Romney walks on!

Moreover, he might wind up with enough delegates to put Santorum “over the top.” Then he might make a deal with Santorum, like the Vice Presidential nod maybe, or the Secretary of State nod, or ….

Therefore, I don’t expect either Santorum or Gingrich to presently drop out, but what if Paul……..!

Actually, if the Republican Convention becomes all tied up, I fully expect “Sister Sarah” to get the Republican TEA Party nomination for President!

Romney is behind Obama 5 or more percentage points depending upon who you listen too.

Now he is going to move "to the center" the news pundants tell us.

I don't believe the TEA Party - which now controls the Republican Party - will let hin do this.

As a result, I predict a LANDSLIDE victory for the Democrats this Novermber; like Goldwater in 1964.

I hope, anyway!

I just got finished listening to a rather long and fantastic campaign speech by President Obama to a rather massive, and growing "charged up," audience.
I, and the significantly large group of young people, dramatically increased our desire to support the whole Democratic Ticket as the speech continued!
If this is going to be the typical Obama campaign speech through Election Day, the Ding-bat TEA Party Republicans are in a WHOLE LOT of do-do!!!

Wouldn't it be fascinating, and also very surprising, if Romney is about 20% behind Obama about the time of the Republican Ding-bat Convention gets to be about a month or less away; and then he publicly decides that he no longer wants the nomination for President?

However, if he is about 20% behind, and then he accepts the nomination, he is unquestionably a JERK!

I am 67 years old - and part Baby-boomer I suppose - and I find the many mysteries of life more and more confusing as I go along and evermore get rapidly older.

For instance:

When a rather large stone of thrown into a small pond of water, it makes a rather tall ripple in the liquid at first.

The ripple continues to grow larger and larger in circumference as it expands outward, but the size of the tallness of the ripple becomes smaller and smaller until it disappears from view completely.

However, all of the civilized history of mankind seems to be exactly the same as the previously mentioned ripple made by the stone falling into the pond!

Whether it be the Mongols, the Chinese, the Arabs, the British, the Spaniards, the French, the Germans, the Soviets, or the what-ever, they have all fallen from their very high perch of social domination at the time of their power.

My question I want everyone to think about today is: Are the American corporate powers which control our federal government beginning to do this very same thing to the United States, while much of the rest of the civilized world is moving scientifically and/or socially ahead of this nation?

I am beginning to really love this presidential race, and I am not a Democrat as such!

If Romney supports a moderate position, he loses the support of the TEA Party members!

On the other hand, if Romney supports the TEA Party position, he almost completely loses the political middle!

It is a "lose-lose" situation for him!!!

The United states of America was founded by LIBERALS, RADICALS, REACTIONARIES, REVOLUTIONARIES even!

They wrote The Declaration of Independent and the Constitution of the United States.

This country became the FIRST DEMOCRACY in the entire world!!!

And a Conservative at the time: a Torie.

"Our country has come to" the majority of citizens who think like you, and others like you - including me - are so very busy paying no heed to what is going on in this nation, that when the far right-wing Ding-bats united and vote, THEY WIN!!!

It is not their fault, however, the FAULT IS OURS ALONE!
