Not even remotely true, why the lies? because you're a democrat/liberal? It's well known the only way democrats can get elected is to conceal their true intentions.
Just b/c you don't read enough about the people you blindly follow, before selling your soul to them, doesn't make the truth into lies. I'm a Democrat and a Liberal, so what? More importantly I read and I know about Gary Webb, the investigator/journalist that was among the first to expose Reagan and the CIA for this scandal. Let me guess, you've never heard of Gary Webb?(Rolling my eyes) Heres something even simple enough for you to read, to help you get started...

By the way, Webb was killed shortly after he expose this scandal...not surprising, unless you were stupid enough to worship Reagan, like Romney.

Obama is bringing troops home, Romney voted to continue all of the war operations, and even send more soldiers over. Obama never voted to "decrease nuclear weapons", Romney lied about that, what a surprise. He lies, that's what salesmen do. LMAO

Just like when Ryan lied about getting Democrat support for a healthcare bill they wanted...it was actually rejected. Wake up, they lie b/c they know that most people don't read, and they base their votes on stupid shit, like Romney being a white Mormon, or blindly Republican pride, Gay marriage, etc. Use your brain, and vote to protect your health.

Don’t just skim over this, read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out!!!
The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.
The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is ”Bush’s Fault”, think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH
Remember the day…
January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
Unemployment… to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!
Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?
OBAMA and the Democrat Congress

LMAO, no. remember that the secretary of defense did not respond to the terroristic threats long before 9/11. I remember that Bush and Osama had the same accountant. I remember that several corporate steel and weapon producers paid lobbyists to continue the war, when we had an out, and Bush, who has several shares in many of these companies himself, was in favor of intensifying the combat opertations.

You remember 1/3/07, i'll remember G.W. Bush's enitre administration, and how our nation still hasn't recovered from such a careless president. Thanks though.

Who is the CEO of Halliburton, the company that received $17 Billion for the War on Terror? Obama? No.

Who suggested to let the American auto industry go bankrupt? Obama? No.

And who called war veterans, the elderly, and the working class, whom are apart of the 47%, people who need to take responsibility of their lives, while suggested to provide tax cuts to the top 20% of Americans? Obama? No, the republicans did.

All you idiots do is blame Obama for everything, yet have no fucking plan to fix the mess that you all made over a decade ago. Stop whining making Obama a scapegoat, and take responsibility for your failures.

Liberals/democrats need constant reminders of who is responsible for our present financial situation and I'm all to happy to do it:
The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
So what does this have to do with Reagan selling cocaine to poor black people, then arresting them for being addicted to it? Halliburton and Bush sending troops into war for a $17 billion paycheck for Vice President Cheney?

This is not completely Democratic either, you're spinning it. SMH, if you're going to defend your dishonset party, just tell the whole truth, don't spin shit, it's very dishonest.

If the White House has its way, the United States could soon reduce its nuclear arsenal dramatically, possibly even to the point where it would possess fewer atomic bombs than congressmen. And though Republicans on the Hill are already complaining that the plans are "reckless lunacy".

Why We Need Nuclear Weapons

One of the reasons that we haven't had World War Three is because of nuclear weapons are a deterrent. Other countries know, whether they have nuclear weapons or not, that a country armed with these metallic cylinders of death can really hit back hard. No one is willing to lose land and resources, so they are less than eager to jump into a fight. Because of the terrible destruction brought on by a nuclear war, the major powers are weary of engaging in warfare with any but the most defenseless of nations. Additionally, with nuclear weapons and treaties between nations, it stops the powers from waging war with just anyone, since there is always the possibilities of consequences to their actions.

A nation with nuclear weapons has a population that feels secure. Because their government can unleash the power of the atom, they have less of a reason to fear a foreign nation will try to go against them. The added benefit of security makes people feel safe. Just the mere mention of nuclear bomb can stop an entire country in its tracks from invading. These bombs, can save a country just by having them.

Just because our nation decides to get rid its nuclear armament, how could we be so sure that Russia, or Pakistan would do the same. They might say they do, but could hide their nuclear bombs until we are defenseless then strike us. What would stop other nations, on the cusp of nuclear bombs, from building them and using them against any other country? The purpose of nuclear weapons isn't about killing. It's about intimidation. By making an agreement to get rid of all nuclear weapons, we will just increase the suspicion between nations. Getting rid of all nukes will make the world even less safe.

"Cheney became Halliburton CEO in 1995...According to Cheney's 2001 financial disclosure report, the vice president's Halliburton benefits include three batches of stock options comprising 433,333 shares. He also has a 401(k) retirement account valued at between $1,001 and $15,000 dollars.
In 2002, Cheney's total assets were valued at between $19.1 million and $86.4 million."
