“Right”“Left,”“Democrat”“Repub lican,”“Liberal”“Conservative, ”“Capitalist”“Socialist” these are all words that are in the newspapers and on television most every day now, and almost all Americans are sick and tired of hearing them over and over again and again!

It is a constant battle between the two philosophical positions, with a never ending conflict in sight.

Here in the United States, our government goes from being one sided to the other: from being too Liberal” to being too “Conservative.” And we seem to be in the middle of a rather “dramatic change philosophies right at the moment.

This nation seems to be moving from a very “Conservative” position to a rather “Liberal” one. The election just past validates this point.
Obama won the presidency – again - even though

Romney was favored; the Democrats picked up a couple of seats in the U.S. Senate, even though the so called experts said the Republicans might win control of that chamber, and the Democrats actually picked up several seats in the House of Representatives, even though those same so-called wise men were predicting otherwise.

The Republicans, however, since the election, don’t seem to understand that they lost, and lost rather badly.

And watching the various news broadcasts it is now very much apparent that while the Republicans all agree that something is very wrong with their party, it seems that no two of them can agree with each other as to just how to fix it. The Republicans are heading for major loses in the 2014 elections a little over a year from now.

And if one views an American history book critically, one will quickly understand that this country has vacillated from one position to the other ever since Adams and Jefferson opposed one another in the late 1700’s.

The LOSERS in all this unadulterated nonsense is “We, the People….”!

What is badly needed is a new and intelligent political party in this country.

Ah, did you miss me doc? lol I beg to differ with your first paragraph. Liberal, Democrat and Socialist are not included the news however, conservative or Republican are. Just watch the news...the news media is biased and don't want to show their "favorites" in a bad light. Look how many times the word Democrat has been missing in news reports when a Democrat messes up. Democrats and the media are clearly one.

BTW...the Republicans did retain the House. So they did not officially lose the election; unless you believe the President elected gets to call the shots. I have to take you back to the writing of the constitution, that the Prez needs to visit, and bring up the three tiers of government. Unless of course you prefer a dictatorship.

Who's being elected this November, Doc? Nice Senators or Congressmen not involved in special elections. Thus it is an off year election. Read and understand the Constitution.
