The problem is many of you all are like sheep being led to slaughter and you don't even know it ... so you go cast votes for stooges who only make the problems worse, because you think many things, some of which are not unimportant (I will give you that), are paramount, when they are not.

I'm not crazy about everything in the republican party platform, but I'm pragmatic enough to realize that this debt problem we face is not something that will solve itself if left up to just democrats.
