Exactly where and how do you go cast your vote with bullets. Don't think that has been done here in America or maybe just a poor attempt at sarcasm on your part.

We haven't had an excuse to talk about Republican abuse of the filibuster lately, so here's a nice chart for you that spells it out. It comes from JS, a regular reader, and instead of just showing the rise in the filibuster over the past 50 years, it color codes each Senate session to represent the party in the minority. As you can see, Democrats have been responsible for only a tiny part of the increase. The big changes came in the early 70s, the late 80s, and then in the late aughts after Republicans lost the Senate in the 2006 elections. When you add up all the red segments, they represent virtually the entire increase in the use of the filibuster over the past half century.
This isn't a big surprise or anything, but now you have the color-coded data to show to all your friends and relatives. Republicans are the party of obstruction, and they have been for more than four decades now.
I'm not a Republican but someone has to obstruct the liberal communist agenda put forth by the Democrat party. You "progressives" know no limits to your agendas . Left to you idiots the Constitution would be nothing more than an antiquated relic in the Smithsonian. Guess what;you ain't never going to get everything your little liberal minds desire...

There's plenty of reasons for that but the largest is that House Republicans have been riven by factionalism that, when combined with Democrats unwilling to cross the aisle to lend support for the GOP's agenda has made passing anything extremely difficult.
(The farm bill in the House is a good example of this trend. After the initial farm bill vote failed thanks to the revolt of five dozen Republicans, a second bill, which stripped out provisions for food stamps, was approved without a single Democratic vote.)
So, how does this House stack up against past years when it comes to productivity? Not so well, according to the new Vital Statistics on Congress, which shows that the 112th Congress passed just 561 bills, the lowest number since they began keeping these stats way back in 1947.
productivity
The second lowest number of bills passed in a single Congress -- 611 -- was back in the 104th Congress, the two-year session that followed Republicans re-taking control of the House in 1994 after four decades of Democratic control.
An important caveat: A raw count of bills passed is a decidedly simplistic way to measure true legislative productivity. Not all legislation is created equal; some bills matter more in the grand sweep of things. So, passing some sort of immigration legislation isn't really the same thing as naming post offices and the like. But, it's seen that way in this chart.
Still, it's quite clear that this Congress didn't exactly tear it up legislatively speaking over the past two years. What's all the more remarkable about the relative dearth of bills passed through the House in the 112th Congress is the incredibly high number of recorded votes that took place over that same time period. There were 1,607 recorded votes in the 112th Congress, the fifth highest total since Vital Stats began collecting data.(Also worth noting: Three of the five Congresses with the most recorded votes have been the last six years.)
Who in the Hell wants more rules and regulations or laws enacted? I for one am glad less bills are being introduced and passed...I like my freedom.

i believe if two dudes love each other, or two chicks and they can live under the same roof, so be it, its not hurting my life in any way.
i believe we should help the poor, and also i believe we should empower them to help themselves, if that means a free education or health care for a short time while they go to school or work to get on their feet, then so be it, better than my tax dollars going to a rich man or a war or feeding the poor in other countries.
i also believe in weapons, and i own several of them, i believe we should have the right to protect ourselves or hunt.
i believe in the death penalty for murderers and probably even for child molestors.
i believe in less government regulation.
i believe in coal and i think the government needs to step back and let americans earn a living and back off with the epa and i believe in drilling for oil here at home and ending our dependence on imports.
i believe there should be a seperation of church and state and it should be inforced. i dont think judges should use the bible or use religion in their courtrooms.
i believe the government needs to focus on our own and stop putting so much money and time into helping other countries and we need to bring jobs back here to america.
but i also oppose long term welfare and i believe FATHERS and mother should have to participate in ged classes, job training, etc to support their children.
so im not really sure where that puts me.
i am not entirely liberal or conservative, i believe i just believe in my beliefs and live and let live.
You are basically a Libertarian not that there's anything wrong with that. Like me you probably think there should be a "common sense" party

It sounds like you are just a good American who knows what your values are. I disagree with you about the coal situation but everything else you stated represents a comprehension of what it is to be American. It is a shame we have to label ourselves with some political moniker as to our values when we all should have American values whih are always in favor of the individual (not corporations or political or religious groups) and his (hers, black, white, brown, gay, leabian, Christian, Muslim, Jew, etc.)unalienable rights. I agree with you 95% and consider myself liberal in the true sense of the word as used when this country was founded.

Division rules mightily within this day and age of America and these States' peoples are as far from "united" as the East is from the West. There is nothing unified or shared like common bonds as people migrate ever further and further into polarized opposition to one another and see everything in an Us versus Them type view and I don't expect this to correct itself anytime soon..if ever. People become more and more self-absorbed, more self-centered with some delusional notion that they are somehow the very epicenter of the Universe and all that transpires within it somehow hinges on their opinions, beliefs, ideas, etc. alone and that what they believe to be "truth" trumps and overrules all else. They/We have developed a "god complex" that promotes arrogance and apathy amid an overwhelmingly absurd deceit-fueled cocoon where we paint pictures of bloated self-importance and caustic conceit telling ourselves that we know it all, that we know what is best for everyone involved. There is no more compromise to be explored or treaties of positive negotiations that uphold the "live and let live" philosophy as this entire nation cascades into an abyss widened by conflict, chaos, and combustion fueled by our very own self-righteousness. Republicans versus Democrats, Liberals versus Conservatives, Right versus Left, Gay versus Straight, Christian versus Atheist, Victims versus Tyrants, and so forth and so on ad infinitum.

There is no real, truthfully legitimate nor actual "challenge" here for I see with unhindered eyes and easily read the writing on the wall as a certain type of mindset, an ideology of self-damnable dimensions gains more and more ground within the American public
and blatant, unabashed ignorance achieves seeming invincibility. Anonymous cyber-ghosts climb upon their soapboxes and pontificate from their posting pedestals about how they have all the solutions and answers while everyone else is just dead wrong but refuse to
acknowledge it. Meanwhile the circle remains unbroken as stupid stays stupid and the moronic becomes evermore malevolent with each
passing moment. Challenge? Pssh...I've yet to see the day I find myself challenged.

If you're referring to Republicans being the party of "obstruction" to communism, dictatorship, etc., then I would certainly agree.

You can also come out of nowhere, have NO experience, paint yourself black, give your followers a false platform of hope, get support from Oprah, pay off a few folks at ACORN, and you've got a winner!

The Dems and Libs have proven that the office of Prez. is an equal opportunity employer. Your political views, willingness to uphold the Constitution, religious beliefs, place of birth, educational background, and experience, has completely nothing to do with your qualifications for office.

And THAT is the gospel truth indeed, Brother B.C. because we witnessed it happen not just once but twice here in the USA. A man with absolutely NO experience and no real game plan, just oratory "skills", celebrity-type appeal and charisma (that seemed to speak to lesser intelligent voters who aren't really concerned or too involved with the actual issues), and an endless string of lies and BS deceived his way into the Presidency. And now, despite scandal after scandal and revelation after revelation about his ineptitude and deceit, many of those exact same voters remain loyally enthralled to that snake in the grass.

BTW - Happy Holidays to you and yours, B.C. I'll be MIA for awhile here soon and I had not seen you around here lately so have
a good one and take care!

You know that all the lies you all say and tell have no basis in fact. The president is not the only one to blame for things you don't like. Boehner as well as McConnell have admitted that the tea party have been a real problem in congress. Look I didn't vote for Obama but I realize that we need people to work together. Because of the hate spewed by foul mouth worthless tards like you have not helped move the country forward. Obama and the dems have tried to push forward the income disparity that is a problem not only in this country but the world. The fact that healthcare is out there that can help many people live better longer lives but have no way to pay for it. Is Obama care the answer NO! Its a dam good start that can be changed over time as needed. You are constantly on here using the bible or Jesus . Did you see what the pope just said about the problem of income disparity? The people who control the money also control the government. They refuse to spend any of the record profit on higher wages for the people who work hard to make that company that profit.

You are a misinformed liar who has no stable grasp on anything I say and clearly you are unable to differentiate between
what someone's opinions/beliefs are compared to what is actual fact. There are dozens of posts from me that detract and
oppose Politics and Politicians from ALL parties and platforms, same as there are dozens of posts from me about my views
or ideas about God, Religion, Christianity, etc. yet you continue to distort and lie about me and my posts. Clearly you are full of
sh!t and following some type of ignorance-driven agenda that no one seems to really care much about, jackass.

i believe you are right Pat, the celebritism of political leaders means more to people than their actual policies.
I wonder just how many black voters could have told you what Obamas policies were before the first election, or after either.
I wonder how Oprah would have felt about him had he been a Republican and a non liberal.
Voters now adays vote for a President the same way they vote for American Idol.

Your opinion is just that yours and yours alone! Have you not looked around you and noticed that few people share that opinion. The tea party has become a laughing stock! Nobody likes Ted Cruz. Yes we all see those idiotic post you make about you being some topix god as if that is to be proud of. Its not the politics or the politicians that have become the problem. Its the money that controls them all there is the problem. You need real help if you think anyone of us gives a rats a** about you or your opinion. What I care about is the people that need help. The money is only flowing in the top. It is a problem when people go to work part time for low wages and still need government help. Yet the companies are making record profits. Do you get that? Its a problem when drawing welfare, food stamps, or ssi makes more money than going to work does. That's why so many choose to not work a crap paying job!
