What I'm wondering at this point is this: how bad does it have to get before people cast off liberals and their big government? The liberals are going for broke now, stuffing an awful healthcare bill down our throats, taking away our guns, raising taxes sharply, borrowing enough to ruin us, driving jobs overseas, letting in millions of 3rd world parasites... how bad does it have to get before the american people give these creeps what they deserve?

And I' ve seen on tv some people come to get cure of multi resistant tuberculosis . It takes a long time about one year or so to get cured and it's very expensive.

No one wants this, at least not anyone I've spoken to about it. But our hands are tied, as our government and the MSM shove this crap down our throats. The only way to get out from under it is to go completely off the grid. But where? And how?

The rule of law is dead in this country.

Well, In Bridgeport I'd say it will continue as long as their is an open bar at Te@@o's. As long as the pad is paid every month they will not change

liberals types can see that the future means changing how we act tomorrow even if we remember and can be proud (parts of the past ) they happen to be in power at the moment and they're in the media . Telling a lot of people what to think.

It`s good we help out our hard working Hispanic neighbors who are struggling. Throwing welfare $ at lazy, porch-dwelling mud apes is where we`ve gone wrong.

I guess I agree, if liberals move slowly. But now I wonder if they'll blow it by getting more and more ridiculous really fast. Our only slim hope is that liberals will become so deranged that the majority of the population will vote them out.

How is that a hope? Look at how hopelessly repressive, socialist and politically correct Britain has become.
