Another internet tough guy. Most Americans think we have more than enough Mexicans here already but Congress is about to legalize millions more. You're apparently too stupid to see the disconnect between what the majority of people want and what the government does.
Why do you think Obama bailed out his campaign donors on Wall Street instead of people behind on their mortgages?
Why does Israel get billions annually?
Why did we invade Iraq?
Where is the pressure to attack Iran coming from?

It isn't just Barack Hussein Obama, it's his owners. You seem to be under the delusion that it matters whether the president is a Republican or a Democrat when what matters is who is pulling their strings.

I voted for McCain because he used to seem independent and was involved in campaign finance reform. That was before I found out about his father and the U.S.S. Liberty cover up.
I voted for Obama last time but I'd like to have my vote back. McCain was the first Republican I ever voted for.
I recently had an epiphany, the reason for the disconnect between Americans and congress. It's because Congressmen and Senators vote the way campaign donors want. Lobbyists help write legislation.
You can also look at the litmus test Secretary Hagel had to pass.

So, you're a died in the wool Democrat. You believe aborting unborn babies should remain legal even thought it is murder. You believe in gay marriage.

However, the GOP is just as bad in many repects.

We were NEVER a Democracy! Our nation was started as a Constitutional Republic, otherwise known as a representative Republic. The word Democratic has two meanings. The older one in use for the name, "Democratic Republican Party" means "favoring social equality". The newer definition, used since the beginning of the 20th century, means "advocating democracy".

Both major parties are for a democracy. The Democratic Party wants a socialistic democracy, and the GOP wants a more capitalistic democracy. Liberalism vs neo-conservatism!

Constitution Party for me!

Obama goes to Berlin doing his [poorly executed] impression of Kennedy...falls flat on his face [even with "invitation-only" [and small] crowd].

Obama spoke of all people in the world being free and having civil rights...even though the entire world knows Obama is running an American police state and has his boot on the necks of all Americans loyal to the United States Constitution.

We are no longer a Democracy...and the Republicans are dooming all Americans to slave state because they continue to "play" politics.

You want to clean-up America...remove the security clearances from all politicians who by "law" do not qualify to have clearance.

Fully 99% of Liberal/Socialist politicians are "security risks" and determined to destroy the United States Constitution...

Take away their security clearances...remove them from select committees.

Save America from Liberal/Socialist/Communist/Mu slim take-over.

Our nation began as a Constitutional Republic with a Republican (not of the GOP) form of government. See the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution. It doesn't guarantee a Democracy; it guarantees a Republic.
The following websites should help distinguish between the two terms. Andrew Jackson was the founder of the Democratic Party. He actually wanted our nation to be a Democracy. He was pro-slavery and passed the Indian Removal Act, a type of genocide. Democracies can be very dangerous.

"Why did we invade Iraq?"

Bush had "hard evidence" WMD were in Iraq.

Bush was having problems with Liberal/Socialist in the military, intelligence community, Congress and the Senate.

Remember KGBill Clinton withheld intelligence from Bush transition team for four months. Then came 9/11.

January 2003 __ Pentagon Liberal/Socialist operatives in uniform shredded hundreds of Clinton pre-9/11 files destroying evidence [source Defense Intelligence Agency].

Bush had intelligence there were WMD in Iraq...Liberal/Socialist had intelligence Soviet Special Forces and Syrians convoyed "all" WMD into Syria.

Putin is backing Syria for many reasons including protecting WMD from falling into Muslim terrorist hands. Obama has delayed American involvement to give Muslim terrorist "time" to capture WMD.

As to why we went to Iraq...Congress/Senate [Liberal/Socialist] approved the Bush invasion "after" Nancy Pelosi went to Syria to verify all Iraq WMD had been removed to Syria.

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid set Bush up. Bush acted in good faith on "bad intelligence" supplied by Liberal/Socialist intelligence officials.

Or Bush junior's Jewish neocon handlers guided him into it and used false testimony before Congress to get Congressional support.
Every Congress and President since WW2 has failed in their duty by getting us into undeclared wars that never end as cleanly as a declared war would. If there's enough reason to risk troops there's enough reason to declare war. A war declared would need to be finished.
The Constitution gives the Congress power to declare war, not our elected replacement for King George.
