just in case you are historically challenged I decide to provide you with some unemployment numbers when bush 1 left office. Notice how with a democrat as president unemployment went down. Then when liar bush became president with low unemployment he went to work on the middle-class. Now it's up to a democrat president to once again put America back to work. How anyone could ever vote for a republican is a mystery.

If you all answered "YES"
Boy are you in for a BIG surPRIZE.

NO - our liberties and freedoms have been and are swiftly being taken away from ALL of us -everyday law abiding citizens.
WAKE UP! Ever heard of the TSA, the NDAA's indefinite detaining of US citizens, drones policing the states , not the borders. WHY? Our privacy this day and age is nil. All because of WHAT? It's like wE are the enemy.

NoW WHO is really the enemy?!

Where have you been?!!
Look around, you'll find plenty more where our rights and freedoms are being swapped out & MORE dictatorship in the making.

Then you guys no doubt would have nO problem with being dictated to as to how how many children you could have or if it's a girl to abort!
You also seem to have no prob with the TSA perbs rubbing all over you - or your children . This speaks for itself. Either you are a lOOSE woman with no scruples eNJOYing in your nakedness or you are just a sheeple.
I could go on but you show your OWN true colors.
People ARE dumbed down and some are just too dumb to see truth in our freedoms being stripped away. Maybe you should read some news instead of playing on your ipad or whatever it is that so easily distracts you.

And you guys think drones are JUST for the enemy? Look at the US citizens being treated as enemies! SUCH ignorance discusses me.

Guess you must be from the new generation who has never known about freedom! Actually, you should have lived and experienced some of that- know what freedom IS before you go telling someone they should have lived during " hard times'' LOL ..-New gen ?
