Absolutely. It's not that I consider the Republicans some kind of significant opposition or alternative - it's just creepy how Americans, of all people, are clamoring for a monarchy when they should be demanding the president just stick to pardoning turkeys and lighting Christmas trees.....in fact, we don't even need an executive branch. Better to just appoint the general that would oversee the military once Congress determines the defensive operations and then a chief diplomat to handle foreign relations and some generic veto type position for a "check". Of course none of these changes would protect against a populous of imbeciles - nothing does but I'm sick of this "leader of the free world" bullshit. What happened to "representatives"?
We lost that years ago.

When American entered The Great War(WWI) we started down a course of altruism that we cannot afford nor do we as a nation need.

I assure you it’s worse than some copy/paste antics. Florida must be the white trash capital of the nation. After living in Georgia for 26 years I thought I had seen it all from rural Georgia. I was wrong.

I know a lot of gun owners. I’ve yet to hear of one carrying in the shower. Do you have any idea of how ignorant you appear?

At 5’ 140 pounds you’re a pipsqueak. Suffer from little man syndrome much?

How do you know she would be alive today? Knives, baseball bats, pens, pencils and many other ordinary household items may be used as weapons. How many angry husbands have killed their wives with their bare hands?

EC , I am glad to see I am not the only one who lives in the great state of Florida and sees this.
Florida has the dumbest white people I have ever seen in my life.

In Iowa and New Hampshire, states without big minority populations, Obama won by gaining the support of nearly six in 10 women. Obama won 71% of the Asian-American vote. From the exit polls, President Obama’s support from men slipped a few points from 49% four years ago, but women supported the president over Romney by 55% to 44%.
Republicans have won the white vote in every presidential election since 1964, and that continued Tuesday with Romney beating Obama by 20 points, 59 percent to 39 percent, according to exit polls.
Obama won 80 percent of the minority vote, which, besides Latinos, included African Americans, 13 percent of turnout, the same as 2008, and Asian-Americans, who were 3 percent of the vote, up a point from the last election. President Barack Obama on Tuesday won a whopping 71% of the Latino vote, up from 67% in 2008.
In 2012, the share of the Latino vote rose to a record high 10%, a number that’s doubled in the past 16 years. President Obama won about 8.4 million Latino votes, using a rough calculation based on exit-poll data. Romney captured no more than 3.44 million votes.
Yep. That's the payoff when you attack your own states to stop them from getting rid of illegals. Hispanics owed DumBama.

This from a bunch of fools who keep electing an insane eighty year old from San Francisco who thinks ObamaKare should allow productive citizens to quit working and become hippy artists and musicians.

"Describing ObamaCare as an “entrepreneurial” bill, Pelosi advised artistic Americans to quit their jobs with the assurance that the new health care law would pick up the tab for their health insurance."

Ah ha! The racism argument ! It seems to come out at the oddest times. For instance when someone wants laws, that are already in place, enforced.

It will simply speed up the course to empty coffers for the entitlement recipients. Then the Democrats will have the working, AND the leaches pissed at them.

Well, I have to tell you nicely you're wrong. Sorry.

[Obamacare] "says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care. You won’t have to be job locked." - Nancy Pelosi, 2012

Translation: Quit being a productive citizen and become a starving artist/musician riding on the backs of those who continue to pull the entitlement wagon.

If you want Obamacare to fail and fail quickly there is a simple step to take.

Once it is fully implemented all Americans simply drop private coverage and pay the penalty and then ask Obamacare to pick up the tab.

The program will be swamped overnight with request for payment from health providers and not have the funds to pay.

This will prove the system does not work and will never work.
Of course

you are lying. She is talking about the fact that under the Affordable Care Act you don't have to worry about being rejected for preexisting conditions when you have to apply for a new insurance policy if you need to change your job or start a business.
