Didn't read past the 1st paragraph of your post.
This belief that poor people on the public dole is this countries problems is a political tactic, nothing more. The numbers don't back that claim up at all. Our funding problems are and have always been social security and Medicare. The middle class is having fewer children because they just can't afford more, so the pool of money to pay for the baby boomers is just too small. If you believe Social Security is a savings program, itís not, it purely an insurance program. Itís really a Ponzi scheme with current workers funding the program.
As for the media not being believable, thatís nothing new. But it was taken to an entirely new level with Fox News Channel, backed and funded by the conservative wing of the Republican Party. MSNBC after a few years has tried to do the same, but they are not in the same league. People driving cars with bumper stickers saying ďdon't believe the main stream mediaĒ and then believe every twisted comment on FNC is what makes me sick. You can smell a FNC fanatic a mile away.
We ALL need to realize the current problems were created by my generation, baby boomers with lots of credit and little common sense. People playing the blame game and not even considering how we got in this situation and just how close the banking and auto industryís came to complete collapse. Always blaming politicians that WE elected to office. Georgia is a good example, Saxby in his last term attempted to work toward a compromise that might actually get government moving. And conservative wanted to hang him for his work. This is a majority rule country, and a minority unwilling to compromise is stupid and unproductive. Never has it been like this in the history of American. And things will not get better until we learn to work for the common good again. Or just wait until hispanics are the majority voting block in this country and let them fix the problem.
Sorry about the you make me sick comment, but thatís just how I feel about some people who rant on this site with little understand, a whole lot of hate and a "my way or no way attitude".
Just to give you a small amount of information. This country is supposed to be a Republic, not a Democracy. So therefore the majority is not supposed to rule. Where did you pick up the phrase, "work for the common good"? Sounds like the Democratic Socialist Party has been giving you your information.

Palin lost it for him, from the VERY moment he announced her as his running mate. Then, MSM made sure of it, as we watched it crumble before our very eyes.

Actually, it's a democratic representational republic, thank you.

And as for the "common good" - synonymous with the phrase "general welfare" - where have we heard that phrase.

Why, it's from those damn "Democratic Socialist" who drafted the Constitution of the United States of America:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

"Promote the general welfare" - Washington, Franklin, Hamilton, Madison and that gang of liberal Democrats.

Try to change everything. Words mean things. This country was founded as a Republic. Where did you come up with Democratic representational republic? Did you just make that up? What left leaning site died you pull that off of?
Also I see nowhere where it says "work for the common good", except in the communist websites.
This country has become a form of a democratic republic over the years as the state legislatures used to pick the representatives to be sent to Washington. Now the people vote on it and are not doing a very good job for themselves or their states. More and more people are being taught that this country is a democracy. It was never meant for this country to be ruled by a mob of people. That is a majority rules concept. If majority rules we need no laws as the majority will decide what will and should be done with each situation.That is what is happening now as people have started voting themselves handouts. Our republic has been changed into a form of a democratic country, where almost anything that the brainwashed majority thinks is o.k. is done.It will be the downfall of this country.
In my mind there us a lot of difference in the meaning working for the common good, than promoting general welfare for our defenses and secure blessings of liberty to OURSELVES.

"Promote the general welfare"

We know Right Wingers find it boring, but maybe they should put down their TV remotes and actually read the Constitution of the United States of America.

"Promote the general welfare"

Those clear unambiguous words of the Preamble to the Constitution,(enumerating the very reason the government was created), must burn like acid in the Right Wing brain.

According to very Preamble to the Constitution, our government exists to "promote the general welfare". That must make the Founding Fathers liberal Democrats,("Libtards "). Only socialists care about the common good. So, Washington, Hamilton, Franklin, and the rest of the signers were all "Libtards" because they created the government to pursue the common good.

As for me, if supporting the Constitution of the United States makes me a "Libtard" - I'm proud to be one.

A good post but If I may, I would like to add my two cents.
I feel that you are correct on most everything that you wrote. I do see Palin somewhat differently. McCain was giving absolutely no effort to win. He didn't attack Obama and let Obama walk all over him. McCain then asked Palin to be his VP. She accepted and begin a fierce campaign against Obama. The News Media went into its usual offensive assault against Obamas new challenger, which was Palin. Palin disputed many of Obamas statements and challenged him whenever possible. McCain just sat back doing nothing. Several weeks later Palin was told to shutup, back off and lay back and do what she was told to do by McCain and his staffers. I am not saying that she was all that qualified but her credentials were better than Obamas at that time. She at least had spunk and gave some life to an old farts bid to lose. McCain never had any thoughts that he was to win. He purposely threw that election and it was so obvious. Any 16 year old kid could have run a better campaign for class president then McCain did running for president.
Romney is another man and the same story. He didn't want the job and it showed. Romney came after Obama the first debate but after doing so good backed off as he almost screwed up and might have won the election by mistake.Just another rigged election for our first Black president as McCain nor Romney could get the conservative voters to vote for them. Probably because neither were conservatives. Bush was also a fairly liberal. He was just another RINO. Republicans will never win again as long as they keep running liberals and keep trying to act like Democrats. I think the Democrats have that field covered.

We must pity Right Wing Republicans who actually work for a living, as they
suffer from a painful emotional illness called "Cognitive Dissonance."
Republicans believe:
- that government spending causes unemployment - but we can't cut the defense budget, because that would put people out of work;
- that the wealthy need the incentive of massive tax breaks to create jobs - but every tax break for the rich has always resulted in less employment, not more;
- while they make billions sucking dinosaur juice out of the ground in Texas- the Earth is only 6,000 years old;
- we don't need to regulate Wall Street investment bankers while we're still cleaning up from their financial Katrina;
- it's fine to use the bailout money to give themselves bonuses for having ruined our economy, otherwise they'd quit, and we'd lose their "brilliance";
- it's great Congress just passed a new farm bill that subsidizing corporate agribusiness billions - while decrying "welfare";
- even though there are 3,615 times more UFO sightings in America than there are cases of voter fraud - voter fraud is "rampant";
Imagine how their brains must hurt as they try to make these contradictory positions make sense.
As Mr. T would say "I pity the fool", who is placed in such an obviously hypocritical position.
God bless their tiny hearts.
Liberal demodrats are much easier. They believe:
-Give us everything we need to exist and we'll do whatever you ask.
-Don't expect us to work or give back.
-We will give the government total control of everything we do as long as it doesn't cost us anything.
- We will believe anything the government tells us and not question anything as long as it's free.
Bless their lazy soul sucking hearts.

Pure idiocy is on display here.

These right-wing nut-jobs just can't ever give up their ridiculous beliefs though. To do so would mean admitting that they are delusional, gullible, idiots who were stupid enough to fall for the greatest and most expensive propaganda campaign unleashed since the reign of the Third Reich.

Don't worry about it there, Bubba. You just keep on believing that anybody that votes Democrat NEVER had a job, that they don't believe in freedom, that we just want "free stuff".

As long as you keep believing that rather than what is really going on, we'll just keep on putting Democratic presidents in office while you idiots live in world that doesn't exist as depicted by Fox News and talk radio.

You might could get someone to believe you if you weren't a socialists. Then again the Easterbunny believes your crap, but he lays eggs also.
Only the naive and gullible fail to see your contrasts with reality.
Your constant attempts to lay claim to the high road of following the constitution fail because all your posts are nothing more than your attempts to debase the very same constitutional values.
Democracy indeed! Mob rule is what you espouse.

HaHaHa!!!!

Want to talk about a destroyed America? Shall we look at the shape last Republican we let into office left the country in? Maybe we should ponder just what an America with people like Sara Palin and Mitt Romney might have looked like? You guys are idiots if you think you're getting the White House in 2016. America is sick of you and your delusional, racist, ignorant, anti-science, anti-environment, anti-middle-class big-oil supporting party. And that's the facts, jack. That's why Obama is president. Again.
