perhaps you forgot that that was the number one hit on his campaign parade?

so he was just doing what he was elected to do. personally, i don't like the law, it could have been so much better, but there was an attempt to get the republicans onboard in designing it. they declined at every turn. their choice.

again, facts and history are fun!

MSM is a canard.
FOX is more widely view than CNN or MSNBC.
AM radio is wall to wall GOP.
To claim the GOP loses because it is impossible to get their message out is stale, lame and discredited.
It was more like this. The American voters were receptive to Romney, he was dead even before the last debate.. Then two things happened that you can't blame on MSM .
'Binders full of women', reminded woman of Aiken, Murdock and Sanatarium. The woman's vote was the group that shifted back to Obama in the last weeks.
And the response that the hardcore had when Christie did what a Governor must do. Make sure his state gets it's fair share, even if he had to be caught being polite to the President. That reminded the rest of the moderates just how bitter the right has become
I don't care about getting Republicans or Democrats elected. I think both parties suck. I would just like for an alternative candidate to get the same media coverage that their adversaries in either party gets. The media only gives fair coverage to candidates that will play their corporate game. They hated Perot, Buchanan, Paul, Sheriff Joe and every other candidate that proposes to put the people and country first. They want the status quo with the parties continuing to pay them fortunes for political ads and illegal alien loving corporations doing the same for their ads. If you want to discount the importance of the MSM or money in our elections, then I think you're a little na´ve. Likewise if you think that the media doesn't favor candidates that will act in THEIR best interest in spite of what may be best for the country. This is why we get stuck with the terrible candidates we have had. As long as the media continues to control our elections we will be forced to hold our noses while voting.

In some ways I agree with you! But I regard the most of the Repubs as reasonable and I agree with many of their positions. I don't see them as "Right wing" whatever that is. They are a lousy counter
point to democrat socialism. But that is where we are today. We keep allowing ignorant immigrants in, who only vote their checks and nothing else. So what else are you going to get?
A "Fasci" is a bundle of sticks. Fascism or mussolinism is a "Bundling of industries" under the Govt.. Not the other way around.
The Republican president, Eisenhower warned us about the military- Industrial complex, but we chose to ignore him. Cheering the military along USA, USA, USA! Yyeaaaay! From Viet Nam to Iraq to
Afghanistan, From Huey helicopters to Predator drones, their power has increased with each new conflict. Now to turn it inward! But some people think that this can be stopped at the ballot box,maybe they're right.

I don't see any politician as reasonable, with the possible exception of Bernie Sanders. They support the destruction of all our rights and the destruction of the US economy. Listen closely to what they are saying. They always defend giving taxpayer dollars to corporations. They say that giving money to the rich will create jobs when it hasn't had that effect for over 30 years of transferring wealth to the rich. Remember when Reagan made it clear that the federal government would not prosecute those corporations who hired illegals? That policy is still mostly in effect and is the cause for so many illegals to be here. The reason of course is to flood the labor pool to reduce wages and benefits for all who work. The corporations make a lot more money for the rich people at the top when they pay less and less for labor.

Consider the Pat Act. The republican congress passed it, and bush signed it. Obama extended it and further enshrined our loss of all freedoms with the NDAA. I won't support any party or politician who supports the Pat Act.

As to Eisenhower, you are correct. We were warned, and that warned was not heeded. Eisenhower would now be considered too liberal for the democratic party.

The corporations control the government, whatever label you like. It is not a government of the people. The people have been pushed out and now must suffer under the horrible conditions that are being created.

Good job. You said that just like our corporate media taught you to. You are a prime example of how our media controls weak minds. Unelectable nutjobs, fringe candidates and extremists are exactly the words that the MSM use to poison populist candidates. It certainly worked on you.

look at Paul. his platform was based on ideas already provn to not work before he was even born. no it was not the media that made them unelectable, it was they themselves that did that. you are the one that was sucked in by the false words.

You mean they tried disbanding the Depts. of Energy, Interior, Education, the Fed. and the IRS before Paul was born? And you say that turned out to be a big failure? FYI, many of those depts. didn't even exist before he was born. They must have also legalized drugs then too, right? How about using the constitution as a blueprint for our actions? Did they also try that and decide that the constitution got in our way? How about cutting spending by reducing the size of government? Did they also try that and decide it was a waste of effort? Did they also insist that citizens got all the liberties that the constitution afforded them only to come to the conclusion that we have too much freedom? Did they cut most foreign aid like Paul wanted only to realize we can't do without supporting despots and derelicts around the world? Tick, lets face it. You're an agenda driven partisan who parrots the party line, and you know nothing about Paul. He threatened the establishment and that is why he was portrayed as a fringe candidate by the establishment loving media.

yes, we did not have those agencies and it was a failure.

check out he history of market and banking failures before we has a central monetary policy body. look at what the EU found about about not having one...proven that getting rid of the fed is a wrong plan.

we have found out that not having an EPA is bad, industry will not self regulate on that issue,(or any, really...)

again, you blame the media when you hsould have blamed the candidates, but then, it was your candidates that told you to blame the media. Romney said the same thing, didn't he?

do try harder, dear...your country depends on it.

insulting people on welfare or who dont pay taxes is just the price they have to pay for getting a free ride. He did the right thing, he exposed the real reason this country is in decline.....violent crime, 70%+ unwed mothers, and no fathers in sight, are what will be the ultimate reason for the end of our way of life. All of those are a result of democrat vote buying. Give free stuff in return for the possibility of more free stuff down the road. Recipe for disaster, and we are headed that way fast.

I can remember a time when being on unemployment and welfare was embarrassing and disgraceful. Now it seems to be the objective. "STYX-blue collar man" sums up the way this country USED to feel.

End our way of life??? That happened under Reagan when he put in place all the policies to destroy the middle class. It was getting worse and worse. bush just put the policies on steroids. No wonder there are so many out of the workforce. GOP policies pushed them out and the democrats stood there defending the GOP.

The GOP mantra now should be: "Move to China and get a job."
