"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.

The US is not a Democracy, we are a “Representative Republic” but I have begun to worry that our fate will be the same as that of world democracies through out history.

With people like Obama who preach a redistribution of wealth philosophy we are falling into that same trap.

Neither party is doing enough to stop this trend.

The US Government is the single largest employer in the United States. There is something deadly wrong about that for a country…any country. All those government employees are “dependent” on the government. This does not include all those folks who are "on the dole" from one, or more, of the government's "entitlement programs".

Our Government is entirely too large, and it’s reach is far to long and far to invasive. It has become so large it is self-perpetuating. It simply continues to grow… for that is what it does, and that is what it does best. At some point, in the not too distant future, it will implode… collapse of it’s own weight.

And this week the government is taking over the lending industry and propping up AIG the nations biggest insurer.

In my opinion, Obama's "redistribution of wealth" ideas flirt dangerously close to socialism, if not crossing the line outright.

Socialism has never worked. America is not a socialist nation. If Obama wins, I believe America will be railroaded into becoming one... without the consent of the people.

I'll add.. I believe there are extreme leftists liberals who have all the wealth they want, and now desire power. Obama is wealthy, but not THAT kind of wealthy... BUT, he has the charisma needed to gain the power, which makes for a happy marriage of the two.

Look at the $26,000 per plate Obama fundraiser. I would imagine that it will be filled with the LEFT of the left.

Looking from outside in..i say yes if you continue this kind of stuff.....:

I BEG YOU! everyone....!!

WHichever party...IF you aren't already aware of the UNBELIEVABLE distortion that is being done about Rush Limbaugh discussing MEXICO's rules for immigration..AND BEING ATTRIBUTED TO
NOT ONLY america'S POLICIES...BUT ATTRIBUTED SOMEHOW TO REPUBLICAN PARTY
( he is discussing rules for MEXICAN immigration..( until the end you think he is discussing HIS feelings , or america's feelings about american immigration--not what he is saying).at the end of his ACTUAL monologue he even says..." think this is US?...nope.....this is mexico's policy')
THIS FACT is edited out.
and it is being put in an ad as if he is taking about AMERICANS saying this.

do the right thing and correct this obvious falsehood.

1. if democrat, this will KILL your chances.. 2. If repub...you need to get this word out.
If AMERICAN... don't stand for this distortion.

this isn't about... half truth or quazi truths ( some stupid 'one-upmanship' on pledge allegiance or book-banning..). this is taking statements about ONE country and attributing to talking about ANOTHER country..

google it.. I not even American...but this is just.... evil. you are destroying your country for no reason.

"YOU" are destroying your country for no reason?

Are you saying that by discussing Obama and McCain here and trying to put out FACT instead of rhetoric and lies, we are destroying our country?

And, I wasn't clear from your post.. you DO know that the commercials Obama put out are lies, right?

Yes we are doomed.When we reach the point to where there are 60% of the people in our country on government assistance, the economy will collapse. We are at about 47% now and rising.Missisippi has just added another several hundred thousand onto the welfare rolls.30 or 40% of the people cannot support he rest of the people that will not support themselves.I am not talking about the sick or elderly,but about the deadbeats that won't work to support themselves.These people will vote for anyone that will promise them more free stuff.It's coming ,ready or not.Prove me wrong PLEASE.

The socialist liberals plan is working all the while the right wing conservatives are screaming bloody murder and talking more and more crazy crap which just alienates them from the mainstream and plays right into the socialists plans. Both sides are ran by elitists who use the sheep to blindly follow their cause and fight for one side or the other. Remember what Lincoln said, "a house divided cannot stand".

The fat cat elitists from both sides are really the same monster. They set in Washington and laugh their heads off at us at each others throat over R and D, who's right, who's to blame all the while their plan to destroy this country is working nonstop. The liberals will destroy the economy and enslave the people with socialism, the only ones to profit form this is the right wing conservative rich who will be able to not only survive but buy your pathetic life for pennies on the dollar. They both win and you lose but nobody is even going to hear the shot because they are too busy fighting over parties that dont give a single rat turd about you.

Until we shed these labels as Republican and Democrat and fight these elitists as Americans on all fronts we will forever more be their slaves and as the days go by we grow ever closer to the point of no return. Keep fighting for your party because they need you too. Stop letting them use religion, patriotism, political parties, ignorance, fear and labels to divide and conquer then and only then will we see the rats run in fear for a change.

Well said .. In reality the only difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is the fact the people of the democracy get to pick their dictator.. Democrat and Republican are now only brand names the elitist use to make citizens feel like we are part of the process. In reality, our vote, our opinion or our rights matter none. Politicians are no more than puppets and scapegoats for the elite few controlling a big business called "government". It's all about money and control for the select few and nothing to do with the citizens. This country is not in a decline, we are in a full-on free-fall.

"Mr. Obama, who will speak at 1:15 p.m. EDT in the Rose Garden, said Friday he had not made a decision on a strike against Syria. Officials said rather than discussing an imminent military operations in Syria, the president would provide an update to the American people about his decisions on how to proceed." It is now 1:31 pm, this guy is late for everything.
