Murkowsi is mad that she was defeated so she`s looking to split the Republican vote to give the Dumocrat the win. No different then Charlie Crist who is doing the same in Florida..........

All liberal Republicans and Democrats who voted with the O`buma marxist administrations policies must be voted out this November..........

While Bush did nothing to correct the problem, our economic problems originated with the the Clinton administration who instituted the whole sub-prime fiasco by ordering banks to lend money to those who couldn`t afford a home. Thus the building boom of the 1990`s, which brought about the collapse of the American economy. McCain tried to bring this problem to the fore front in 2005 but was prevented from doing so by Harry Reid..........

<quoted text> Poo Poo, there are many ways of doing things. I believe that you could cut one third of total government spending easily from corruption. But there will be pain. Much pain. Then you could cut another third. And that would be the bone. To the bone. The whole system from a Repub view is to neutralize the progressive democrat movement and then having enough to start moving our direction to the right. And tha tis to save money. Since your side will not do it. Because of votes.
Interest point about government waste.

But I was responding to your call to "jettison" Republicans who don't agree with you (or strictly adhere to the tea party agenda). You won't have enough Republicans to elect anybody who will cut spending if you banish key segments of the Republican base.

Even the tea party types can splinter if the "purity" standards are too rigid, and factions fight. That's good for Democrats, but probably not good for the country if the Republicans shrink into irrelevance.

It is really shameful that you have become so controled by party politics that you no longer have the balls to be objective about candidates or the president and all leadership in America.......

You and your pathetic ilk are the reason career politicans have been able to build their Royalty Caste while tearing down American families and weakening America.

you have had everything in life handed to you and have never sacrificed anything while playing your ignorant childish games........

grow up and start being a man.......you are bringing harm to other human beings.

over 43M families living in poverty, over 20 million families unemployed, over 4 million families completely without unemployment benefits for food and shelter, and another 40 million will lose benfits weekly beginning in Nov. while the REAL unemployment rate continues to stay over 20%....and, the government BS unemployment rate continues at 9.7%......and the best estimates have the unemployment rate staying over 8% for another 2 years......leaving millions of families with very little or NO HOPE for the future.
o-bribe-a and the leadership of the United States (reid, pelosi, boehner, mcconnel) have played their games with each other and laughed off the American people long enough.......

It almost goes without saying that Independents will play a crucial role in the upcoming midterm election. As anger toward Washington grows, more people say they are not affiliated with either party. While exit polls in 2008 showed Independents made up 29 percent of the voters, a Gallup poll this year put the Independents at a whopping 41 percent. As the Independents' votes goes so goes control of Congress.

You don't get it. The TEA Party people are purging the professional politicians in both parties. The TEA party people are made up of Republicans, Independents (41%), and disgruntled Democrats. They are regular people who never thought they could make the Government listen to them, and are finding out all you have to do is pick outsiders, and you can change the way the Government does their greedy business. You can call them names, you can call their candidates names, and they jut go about changing the face of Representative government.

It won't be done without it. and if they shrink to nothing then we are done.Because there are people who feel they are taxed to extremes to pay for others. i believe we are ripe for a demi god to be elected with the mechanisms of a totalitarian state in place. And people will vote this in. the last depression caused much pain in America and a percentage of Americans became sympathizers to communist doctrine during the worse years of it. The tea party from my understanding is based on its simplist demands. Cuts and massive reduction of corruption. Not an easy thing. The things both parties argue about like sexual orientation and others are on the back burner until we straighten our economy out. The pain in doing it. And the years it will take to restart our manufacturing and other things.

The entitlement quote is right on the money.
Thanks.

Entitlements are simply a scheme used by corrupt politicians to bribe half the people to vote for them by promising to take money from the other half so the first half doesn't have to work (or work as hard). It makes the first half dependent on the entitlements and thus locks in votes.

But then the number & greed of those receiving entitlements grows, so they must take ever more from the working half. This works until you reach the point that the working half no longer has incentive to work either.

The entitlement half still wants their free money & services, so the politicians then start running government deficits and borrowing money from places like China.

So basically, the US has been going into debt over the last ~80 years or so to bankroll the Progressive/Left politicians' re-election insurance scam.

Another sore loser, she lost and just won't leave.

But, we'll finish her in November, and she'll have to concede to defeat!

The real agenda of the Progressives/Leftists/Socialis ts in this administration is global wealth redistribution and the de-development of the USA and other Western developed and industrialized nations as part of the formation of a socialist global government. Their plan is for the US standard of living to end up somewhere between China's and India's.

This is why Obama is banning drilling in the Gulf despite courts ruling against it, and even ordering permanent caps to be placed on some 3,500 wells in the Gulf, meanwhile giving billions of dollars to Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela (makes that little Chavez book thing with Obama make sense, no?), and other nations to drill not only in the same area as the ban, but in even DEEPER waters than the BP Deep Horizon well.

Please take the time to watch this video all the way through. It makes the seemingly-contradictory & confusing things this administration is doing make a lot more sense...in a creepy, George Soros/1984/Animal Farm kind of way.

Lisa, you are loser.

They turned their backs on you because someone else beat you in the election.

She said she wants to do what's best
for the people of Alaska.

They "decided" who they wanted when
"they" voted.
If she really is a Republican and wants
to help the party, support the "winner"
and the party!

If not, leave the party and become whatever
you want to be affialited with.

No hard feelings.
