The Oracle of Omaha knows HIS investments, but does not necessarily understand small to medium sized business economics. In this case, ole Warren is just plain wrong.

No ideas, no answers? Ya ain't been listening. The answers are within the ideas and ideals. Freeing up the economy from oppression and uncertainty is the sure path to recovery. Misguided regulations are not.

no progress? That depends on how one defines "progress". What we've seen and Libs propound is actually REgressive. True progress assures that all can live to their full potential. Theft of assets to compound poverty and impoverished lives is NOT progress.

no equal rights? All Rights are enumerated and apply to all citizens. Rights do NOT apply to non-citizens or to urges.

no equal opportunity? Equal opportunity and equal results are two different animals. Opportunity is already guaranteed. Results are not. Results are based on individual efforts, abilities, and initiative and NOT arbitrary quotas. What the Left is espousing is that results equal opportunity, and that is patently false.

no health care? There's a difference between having health insurance and being forced onto a government mandated "plan". A "plan" which increases rates, leaves as many without coverage as before, will do severe damage to the economy, and is unConstitutional. Create an environment where peopole can work and they will get coverage, without government interference.

no jobs? That's what the Obama/Pelosi/Reid policies have wrought.

no unemployment benefits? The Country is BROKE! The Feds are borrowing 40 cents of every dollar spent. This cannot continue, though O'booboo thinks this is the future of the Country. At that rate, there will be NO money for ANY benefits by 2020.

no assistance for those less fortunate, no help for the poor? Lib policies actually CREATE poverty.$14 Trillion spent on the War on Poverty, and our poverty rate is worse now than before. Lifetimes spent on generational dependence is antithetical to self-sufficiency. It's time for government to stop creating poverty and destroying families in the process.

no lesbian/gay rights? Gays have the same Rights as everyone else. They are calling for SupraConstitutional rights, though, which have no place in our society.

no government? Small, efficient, focused government is hardly NO government. This is another diatribe making the Lefty rounds, and has no basis.

There are three rules to improve ones path from poverty:
1) Don't have children out of wedlock
2) Don't get married during the teens
3) finish school

Break all three rules, and one has a 95%- 98% chance of living in poverty for life

Adhere to all three, and one has a 95% chance of NOT living in poverty.

The greatest determining factor as to whether a child will follow those rules? Fathers in the house.

There's an old adage:
Tax something to get less of it,
Subsidize it to get more.

And the Government has been subsidizing poverty since 1964 while taxing those that follow the rules for success. Government has been actively demonizing Fathers and chasing them out of the house, then subsidizing the failures of the remaining "family". Currently over 40% of children are born out of wedlock. 75% of black children are born to single mothers. THIS is where poverty is perpetuated.

This state of affairs is unacceptable and dooms the Country.

And the poll stated -

* 91% believe the stimulus legislation lost jobs
- It sure didn't "create" any. The "stimulus" allowed States to defer layoffs and fail to rectify gold-plated benefits packages for State employees. The "stimulus" also "invested" vast sums in technology that cannot pass the "pay for itself" test.

* 72% believe the health reform law will increase the deficit
- healthSCAM doesn't pay for itself, and shifts the majority of the burden of payment onto employers and employees, reducing employment and remuneration, so yes, it increases the deficit.

* 72% believe the economy is getting worse
- "Employment increases" are insufficient to absorb increases in the workforce, so yes, the economy IS getting worse.

* 60% believe climate change is not occurring
- "Climate change" is a natural occurance. Witness prior Ice Ages and warming periods which humans had absolutely nothing to do with. The problem here is defective data, irreplicable results, lack of any semblance of peer review, a defined political agenda, and more, more, more. All adding up to FARCE!

* 49% believe income taxes have gone up
- As of January 1, 2011, they do. A host of other taxes have risen since the Pelosi/Obama/Reid team started implementing their failed agenda.

* 63% believe the stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts
- The stimulus DID include some petty tax cuts, and also a recomputation on withholding, to give the appearance of an income tax cut. In reality, income taxe rates remained EXACTLY the same and will rise severely come the new year.

* 56% believe Obama initiated the GM/Chrysler bailout
- Irrelevant. What is important is how O'booboo bastardized law and precedent to accomplish this failure. Even the GM "payback" was a sham, in that nonrepayable government funds were used to "pay off" interest generating loans.

* 38% believe that most Republicans opposed TARP
- They did, and do. For that matter, most reps up for re-election who voted for this fiasco are now facing unemployment.

* 63% believe Obama was not born in the U.S.(or that it is unclear)
- Has anyone seen a long form hospital issued BC, yet? Except for a couple of Dems who work for the HI Dept of Health, it is sealed, along with most of O'booboo's other records.

I don't rely on FNC to inform me. I use many available and verifiable resources including actually reading the laws and reviewing results. If anything, reading the Kos and Alternet makes ones few remaining grey cells turn to pudding.

This survey merely deduced what people believe, and added nothing to the veracity, or disproof, of assertions.
