Not an extremist??? What about ending Social Security that people have paid into for 50 years, and then just give that money to some rich people? That sounds pretty extreme to me. What about going back to the bush policies that devastated our nation? More extremism. What about shipping millions more jobs to China? What about nuking Iran? What about trashing our economy and environment? Turning the USA into Mexico is extreme. I know bush took us a long way there, but staying on that path is indeed extreme.
There was no way Romney would have lifted a finger to turn this country around. He made it clear he did not want to turn it around.
More fact less assertions.

Yes, and Karma is winning the day. Something else coming out that was hidden by the Obama Administration and the media until after the election is that the highest rise in claims for unemployment is in Pennsylvania and Ohio. The two states that put Obama over are the ones he hid the truth from. Karma.

Which is it?

Leaving the U.S. is NOT figured into the equation. When citizens in the 1800's seceded from the Union, they didn't leave the Country, they merely stayed where they were or went to a Southern or Northern State that supported their fundamental beliefs of what their Government should be and how it should perform for it's people who pay their Government leaders to work FOR THEM (and not pay them to work for themselves or their friends interests).

This secession would prove that there are some who, through lack of fighting a corrupt administration - whether it be Republican or Democrat - by using the general vote process, can be separated from said corrupt Government rule, and enable themselves to be self-supportive and independent of said corrupt Government. I honestly believe that this election was not above board (for several reasons, including that in one State there were several precincts with not ONE vote for the Republican Candidate, which is a numerical impossibility), and there should be a different leader in office. However, the blind have lead the blind, and now we will all fall into the ditch (that Obama promised to get us out of, but never did).

KSL out of Utah reports Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray believes 204 coal plants will be shuttered by 2014. The same report cites Mike Dalpiaz, international vice president of the United Mine Workers of America, who says regulations were actually implemented by George H.W. Bush more than 20 years ago.

Hmmm. Remember half the people have an IQ less than 100. That is why Romney won only 47%.
