Yet my friend, yet. The writing is on the wall. The American worker has tired of years of exploitation. Romney's agenda of Capitolism was the last gasp of a broken bussiness model. The straight, white, bible carrying, hunting male is a dying breed. Look to California, they are changing the Country out there. The traditional Southern man belongs in the Smithsonian with the rotary phone and the horse drawn carriage. The times are a changin! in 20 years whites will be a minority in America. I predict the millionaire will soon follow. One way or another Americans will surrender their guns, the world will demand it. During his 2nd term Obama will have 2 possibly 3 Supreme court appointments. He has a GOP that has been neutered, they cannot stop him. Once we get the Supreme Court that will be the death rattle regarding your outdated narrow vision of America.
Your post stinks of rabble rousing and political fallaciousness, go back to your Penthouse, your bathroom, and do what you do best.

OK caveman, riddle me this, site one example in my post that is false? sorry to burst your bubble but Mitt lost. White males lost! Bible thumpers lost! Your violent way of life lost! equality won! minorities won! workers of America won! President Obama is the first "European" President America has ever had and the world applauds. Why do you fear this change? why should we accept have and have nots? how do you not see the positive? America is once again liked. People across the globe honestly believe America is joining the party. I am thrilled with the direction the President has chosen for this Country. Trust me on this, once restitution has been made the world will embrace America. I honestly believe the borders are coming down, one planet, one people!

Nothing can change what I see as the fundamental reason we fought a the American Revolution, to give every citizen the opportunity to succeed in a society somewhat devoid of a ruling class..in many ways we are on the precipice of returning to that former situation..minus the hereditary titles afforded the aristocracy of 18th century Europe.
"It should seem then that it must be because of the enormous wealth, which places them above attention to the increase of their revenues, that I am conscious that an equal division of property is impracticable, but the consequences of this enormous inequality producing so much misery to the bulk of mankind, legislators cannot invent too many devices for subdividing property. Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher portions of property in geometrical progression as they rise." - Thomas Jefferson
A simple honest and sincere question. How does the people the democratic party demonize hold the middle class down? I truly don't understand how someone could believe such a claim. If Mitt Romney, Warren Buffet, Al Gore, George Bush, or whomever makes billions of dollars per year do you really think that somehow it reduces the chances of you succeeding? Does it rob them of the opportunity to succeed? Take Sam Walton for example. He was certainly not always wealthy. How did he overcome the "oppressors" in this country if he wasn't in that group already? Do you really think that all, or even most, of the people struggling in this country is the fault of someone they don't even know who makes billions per year? Do you think that there is 0 hope for someone to overcome a bad life to be the next tycoon of whatever industry. If you think there is a chance then you must see and admit that the wealthy don't have as much to do with a person's success or failure in life as the person themselves. Reading your posts I am more convinced that you and I are not that far apart in our views but rather who is responsible for our success and failuers as a society is where we differ. I look at my life and I can pick out countless opportunities that I missed because of my decisions. It was never because of some Wall Street big wig was making an obscene salary that caused me to miss those opportunities. It was me. But you know what, I decided somewhere that I couldn't keep living like I was living or my situation would never change so I changed my priorities, my work ethic, my drive, my purpose, and my situation soon changed. Now I see opportunities and they don't get away from me. As a result, my life is in a very good place and getting better all the time. A person's decisions in life compound in whatever direction that person chooses and that can be good or bad but it's ultimately up to the person and noone can change that. Government intervention in our lives can make that process easier or harder. The more government control of our lives we have, the harder that road to success becomes.

why should we vote, I moved to Corning Arkansas 40 years ago when are boat meant something. now I'm bout don't mean dick, they let this community go to hell and let anybody and everybody who wants to move in move in. this town is being run by the crack is a pill heads the new black pimps and drug dealers. even the officials in the area are letting them over right everything. Corning is no longer a community. we should just put chains and bars around the whole city because of the short time is going to look like the inside of prison anyway.

Simple, although abuse abounds,(but name me a institution where it doesn't) Republicans have, tried to destroy, since it's inception, at every opportunity, organized labor...have tried to mollify any sensible workplace safety regulations...have fought any environmental policies, clean air, water acts...any responsibility in the welfare of it's workers, any minimum wage standards, while doing everything possible to aid the captains of industry and their interests.

And still do.

Do you not agree that some workplace regulations need to be reduced or eased in leiu of common sense? The same goes for environmental regulations. I'm not saying that we should have no regulation but the regulation shouldn't choke out an industry either. I'm not sure where you got that republicans are the ones that are negating any responsibility of welfare recipients. Ironically, I am in the process of studying the argument that minimum wage is harmful and repressive so I can't comment on that. But again, whether or not they are beholden to this or that industry, that still doesn't affect someone who wants to succeed and is willing to do what it takes and be disciplined and not careless in their dicisions. It does however affect everyone that works and pays federal income taxes when over half the population is allowed on social welfare programs and not expected to pay those federal income taxes.

I don't think I mentioned welfare recipients, there was a reason that I didn't, don't you think?
