"The deficit is shrinking, and regardless if it was growing, it doesn’t hamper business, or job creation, or affect day to day Americans’ lives or their economic freedom. However, in their drive to cut spending to shrink government teabaggers support killing jobs that does affect every American with loss of services as well as revenue that starves government which is men like the Koch brothers’ goal because less government means fewer regulations and more opportunities to step in and privatize government services like education for a profit. The billionaire Kochs are joined in their drive to starve and privatize the government by the Republican Party, and billionaire corporate CEOs and their campaign to “Fix the Debt” with their message that America faces an existential debt crisis that must be solved immediately regardless their profits are unaffected by the nation’s debt or spending"

I think the worst thing we face is the loss of purchasing power of our money. Inflation is turning into hyper inflation. and wages & income is falling or at best staganant. Im pretty shure the exact same thing happened to germany,s money before WWII?

You are fully engaged to the point of what you see on Fox News. I know. I used to be where you are. You can have all the faih in Constitution you wish. The problem comes with the people that are elected to uphold and defend it.

"The voters determine who the President is."
On that....... you are wrong.

"You and a half dozen more drank the kool-aid and got all caught up in that nutty Ron Paul and basically flushed your vote down the toilet"
A half dozen...really?? Take a look at his early numbers! Guess what would have happened if the media would have actually covered him and presented his message in a fair and balanced way.
http://uspolitics.about.com/od/presidency/tp/...

Any intellectually honest person should be outraged at the way the media treated him. Even if you disagree with him, questions such as this from a respected news organization is shameful and uncalled for. Time wasted on this could be spent on serious questions that afet this country. Even if just out of respect for a presidential candidate. I have never seen any such question be presented on national tv to ANY member of congress, much les a presidential candidate.


"Or maybe you can be punished for it with the election of Obama, interesting"
Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch. Romney wouldn't have been the savior. He's just another puppet that would have continued the downward spiral away from our founding principles this country's been on for decades, regardless of the party in power. So it happens faster under Obama...big deal. The fact is it is still happening and we had only one option to make a difference in this past election. The people who didn't vote for the best man for the job, but rather "the lesser of the evils," are the ones who wasted their vote.

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied,'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.'
The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill , the barber again replied,'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you ' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied,'I can not accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there
were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.
And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
BOTH POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!

They are just as crooked, unfair and unbalanced as any of the liberal channels that are in the tank for the libs. Fair and balanced should mean equal time and equal treatment for all guests, as well as truthful reporting. This is the truth Fox would NEVER let anyone see.


Take a wild guess how large the average crowd was at the Mitt Romney rallies?

I agree with you about Obama .
He was straight forward about his intent to change America into a third world county.
He is constantly attacking the 2nd, 4th and the Due process cause of the 14th amendments.
He is creating a vast welfare state that is dependent on the Federal Government.
He wants to destroy all economic prosperity by using this global warming/ CO2 green house effect to tax us into not being able to pay for energy.
His attacks on coal fired electric plants is an example of that.
The Egyptians described a major climate change in something like 3000 BC just after the pyramids were completed.
Everyone knows that those folks had lots of coal burning plants back then which caused temperatures to rise and the drouth in the Nile valley.
That's also why the polar ice caps on Mars are melting, must be all that hot air from Al Gore .
But he only way to stop this guy is to stop the continuous growth of local,state and Federal government with an end to this entitlement program addiction.

If Romney had won, what would have changed other than the dude in office? Would the wars be over? Would the deficit be gone or reduced? Would unemployment come to an end? Would gas prices have declined?

Your term "libtard" makes you look very immature and no better than the other side. True conservatives will not stoop to the level of calling names in order to get their point across. You lose credibility when you do that. All that is needed are facts presented in an intelligent manner.

"Overall, my budget devotes $4.5 billion to addressing climate change - more than any other nation's commitment in the entire world. This is an increase of more than $700m over last year's budget. Our nation will continue to lead the world in basic climate and science research to address gaps in our knowledge that are important to decision makers.

When we make decisions, we want to make sure we do so on sound science; not what sounds good, but what is real. And the United States leads the world in providing that kind of research. We'll devote $588m towards the research and development of energy conservation technologies. We must and we will conserve more in the United States. And we will spend $408m toward research and development on renewables, on renewable energy.

My comprehensive energy plan, the first energy plan that any administration has put out in a long period of time, provides $4.6bn over the next five years in clean energy tax incentives to encourage purchases of hybrid and fuel cell vehicles, to promote residential solar energy, and to reward investments in wind, solar and biomass energy production. And we will look for ways to increase the amount of carbon stored by America's farms and forests through a strong conservation title in the farm bill. I have asked Secretary XXXXXX to recommend new targeted incentives for landowners to increase carbon storage."

The "LIBTARDS" are NOT in charge of the House of Representatives, which if they choose, they could could pass a one line bill that COULD stop the sequestration dead in its tracks.

But you see we have a debt increase ceiling coming up in a couple of weeks, the Republican party ripped into by the Tea Birchers who will not pass up another chance to hold Americans hostage, another self inflicted Tea Party crises.

Pity the fools come mid term.

The senate run by Harry Reid has blocked all of the houses budget bills.
All this could end tomorrow if Reid( bridge to no where except my properties) would let there be a vote and your buddy Obama would sign it.

The 113th congress has not passed any budget bills.

And that bridge to no where comment is just as ignorant, the house had a chance to lower the deficit by $160 million by defunding the bridge to no-where. Did they, LMAO, what do you think, more importantly what did Republican Senator Stevens think about that, ask a Katrina victim what they think of Mr. Stevens.

By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER | Associated Press – Fri, Mar 1, 2013

— The Institute for Supply Management said its index of factory activity rose last month to 54.2, the highest since June 2011. Any reading above 50 indicates growth. The report showed a jump in new orders, higher production and more hiring at factories. Manufacturing has grown for three straight months, indicating that factories could help the economy after slumping through most of 2012.

— The University of Michigan measure of consumer sentiment rose to 77.6, the second straight monthly increase. The rebound in consumer confidence, seen in both the Michigan survey and another survey from Conference Board, suggests that some consumers have begun to adjust to smaller paychecks.

— Consumers increased spending 0.2 percent in January from December but cut back on major purchases such as autos and appliances. Income plunged 3.6 percent, though it followed a jump in December driven by dividends and bonuses paid early to avoid higher income taxes. The increase in Social Security taxes also lowered after-tax income.

— Spending on U.S. construction projects fell in January by the largest amount in 18 months, the Commerce Department said. Still, that the decline followed a nearly 10 percent increase in construction spending in 2012, the first annual gain after five years of declines.

Investors seemed to focus Friday on the gains in manufacturing. Stocks rebounded after the ISM survey was released. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 35 points, overcoming an early loss of 116 points.

One reason for optimism is that the job market is looking better.

Employers have added an average of 200,000 jobs a month from November through January. That was up from about 150,000 in the previous three months. And a drop in weekly applications for unemployment benefits suggests that employers have stepped up hiring further in February.

Some employers are even willing to pay more: After stagnating since the recession ended, hourly pay has been rising faster than inflation for the past three months. If such pay increases continue, they will help blunt the impact of the higher Social Security taxes.

___

Manufacturing grew in February at the fastest pace in 20 months, according to a report Friday from the Institute for Supply Management. And a survey from the University of Michigan showed that consumer sentiment rose last month to its highest level since November.

The two reports follow other data that show strength in job growth and the housing market. Americans even spent a bit more in January compared with December, despite a sharp drop in income that partly reflected higher taxes.

"Consumers are spending, confidence is rising and manufacturing activity is accelerating," Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors, said in a note to clients. "Just about all of today's reports point to an economy on the rise."

A crash IS coming. But if you think Romney would have stopped the out of control spending in our government, you are dead wrong. Bush was too loose with our money too.

I liken the sitution to a strong wind (republicans) blowing through the forest (our country). The strong wind will knock down some trees (parts of our Constitution) here and there and we won't think much of it because that's just what wind does to weak trees. The forest changes very slowly, but it still changes nonetheless. Eventually the forest is totally changed and the people didn't see it happening, so they did nothing to stop it. They just wondered what happened to it after it's too late.

Then there's a tornado (democrats). It rips through the forest quickly destroying everything in it's path.

The point is, does it really matter who we allow to destroy this country?
