No it's the Democrats that are destroying the country.
If you remember the old school Democrats from the 60's like JFK who said "ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY."
And now the Democratic party is the party of "GIMME MY FOOD STAMPS AND OBAMA PHONE"
He even took the work requirements out of welfare so some people can be permantly of the government nickle
I see. That is what Fox news tells us today. I wonder what the new story will be tomorrow.

With the GOP writing, passing and signing the Pat Act to remove all pretense of freedom it is hard to blame only the democrats. I can understand blaming the democrats for not voiding that monster as soon as they could, but they extended it, and added the NDAA to further enshrine our loss of freedom. Still clearly, it was the GOP who took the brave step to completely eliminate freedom.

Neither party defended freedom, and apparently neither do you.

It's the old divide and conquer. The rich have taken all our money, shipped all our jobs away, destroyed the nation; and now you continue to push the division among those who work.

Take a look around and see what is going on.

Yeah, why don't these people realize that all they have to do is believe every word that comes out of Fox News. And if they want variety they can listen to Rush. They will be told what to think and no effort is required. Some might claim that a bit of effort is required to forget what they said yesterday to believe the new story today, but those people think too much. Just stop all thinking and listen. Rupert Murdoch does all the thinking necessary.

I base my action's on what i hear from customers and people in business that i know.When my sale's are down and other people tell me the same about there company's i believe it, and i don't need the media to tell me i just have to open my wallet or look at my bank statement. In the last 4 year's it has got worse AND I DON'T SEE IT IMPROVING.

If you don't regularly watch Fox News, then why do you repeat what they say? You must be getting it from some right wing source? Limbaugh or other radio propagandist?

If you are smart enough to know what is going on, then why support the GOP? If you know they are stealing everything, why support them. I can appreciate not supporting the democrats and I don't support them either. Both parties are dysfunctional and engage in destroying our nation. They are being guided by those who are working to divide and conquer the people. They are remarkably successful.

As to explosive spending, you do realize spending is created by the house of representatives, controlled by the GOP. Blaming Obama for the spending is wildly irrational. There is plenty to blame on him, but that is not one of them.

Patriotic Girl, and hungry jack, I'm ashamed that Virginia went blue. But that was because of the over-population of liberals in Hampton Rhodes and DC areas. You both sound like the kind of folks we welcome to the heartland of Va. We love patriots( Washington, Jefferson, Henry, Lee etc. you see what I mean?)

If you dislike Fox so much, why do you reference them in every post? Liberals can't fathom that the majority of people would rather tune in to Fox News and Conservative talk radio, and it drives them nuts.

I simply point out that the conservatives are always repeating what Fox Says. Keep in mind what Fox reports is far from reality, and not particularly consistent.

The part that drives me nuts is the fantasy world portrayed. It's like we are support to ignore everything going on in the world, to believe in this fantasy world. It is self-dysfunctional. These people are hurting themselves and everyone around them. If they were only hurting themselves it would be one thing, but they are hurting everyone.

And, no, it is not the majority of people, but a small vocal subset, who are becoming more and more frightened of the world. You would know more if you simply turned it off.

Reagan put all the things necessary in place to destroy America and bush jr finished it off. Obama is just playing with the corpse. The US is now a fascist nation, with all the problems and dysfunctions of a fascist nation. The economy is continuing to free fall. Corporations and the very rich get all the gain from the labor of the workers.

Fox is a reliable news source. What have you heard that was not true? They fill in the gaps that the biased media leaves out.
The media is why we screwed up and re-elected the wrong man.
