Interesting. Here in my part of West TN, most of the older folks always voted Democrat.
when I first came here 5-6 years ago, I was astounded that people were seriously for Hillary despite their religious beliefs. I asked about it, and was told that everyone in the south was used to voting democrat.
Things started to change when the democrat party was taken over by it's extreme left wing, i..e. Pelosi and the other California dem's,(sorry, we don't have a cute name like tea publicans for your left wing whacko's) with their gay agenda, and the same spend thrift policies that have buried that state.
So what's happened is that because they do not relate to the current extreme left of the party, they gravitate towards republicans, despite the fact that most of the population here receives some sort of public assistance.
I guess voters are fickle. Catholics vote democrat despite abortion. Jews vote democrat despite Obama's disdain for Israel. Blacks vote democrat despite the fact that democrat's have not been able to raise their lot in life after 50 years of trying.
Only East Tennessee was solidly Republican...West Tennessee was part of the "Solid South"...solidly in Democratic hands for a hundred years after the Civil War. Some of those Hillary supporters vote for Democrats, for the same reasons East Tennessee Republicans still vote Republican. Even though neither party resembles the one that their parents and grandparents supported.
I have posted many times that the Republican party is in danger of becoming a minority party of the old south and a shrinking slice of the middle west. The country has changed and the Republican party will have to do so as well....It took losing 5 presidential elections for Republicans to recognize what Hoover did to America, and their party. It may take several election cycles before they realize that George W. Bush delt them a similar hand.

Bring back CIA assassinations:
That "tempest in a teapot" Kim Jong-un, has elevated its artillery and strategic missile forces to "combat-ready posture" and said it is prepared to strike targets in South Korea, Japan, Guam, Hawaii and the continental US.
That'll get everyone shaking in their boots.
You know, at one time, this guy would have been offed by now. Along with Achmadinajihad.
Sometimes progress goes backwards.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns is spending $12-million in ads to push federal gun control legislation.
The ads feature a man holding a shotgun, wearing plaid flannel with a camouflage cap, sitting on the tailgate of a pickup truck, while a child swings on a tire in the background.
The man says,“I support comprehensive background checks so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”
While saying this, he holds the pump-action shotgun with the action closed, so it is impossible to know if it is loaded, the weapon is pointed in an unsafe direction, sideways instead of up or down, and his finger is clearly on the trigger.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
If you're going to try to attract gun owners, at least hire one as the actor. In the very least, it'll be safer for everyone in the vicinity.
I actually agree with you !! WOW !!!
The ad looks more like a SNL parody of a gun owner. It would look like with the Mayor's billions, he could have gotten someone who IS and looks and acts like an average gun owner....I predict the ad will not move the needle in the states in which it is being run.
Don't get me wrong "Timbuck", I have no problem with universal background checks, or a ban on assault style weapons and large capacity magazines....but if this is the best the advocates can do to get that message across....no minds will be changed. The NRA must be overjoyed.

I hope a correction is all the Stock Market does. I think it's going to crash. Since all of the regulations were done away with, the same scenario, manipulated by the same type of Investors, is in play right now, very similar to what happened in 1929. It's not exactly the same, but there are enough similarities that everybody should be concerned. If it does, hopefully it won't be as bad as the Crash of '29, but it will still hurt a lot of Investors. I hope I'm wrong.
Yep.I agree.But I thought you were heading to the Middle East.
The Feds throwing $85 Bill out a month in that QE3 is helping the market sing.It's just a bunch of bull.

I take it that you do not dispute the fact that Europeans are no longer flocking to America...or that they have the vote... and elections....or that they have candidates representing different points of view and ideologies, and that Europeans can elect any of them they wish, Since those were the main points in my post, and you agree...what is there to debate ?

Down here in lovely Boca Raton, FL, we're freezing today. It might go down to the 40's tonite.
Don't shoot Phil, he's just been brainwashed by the liberal media. He's been listening to this guy:
http://blog.algore.com/2013/03/time_has_come_...
"Time has come" for a carbon tax" to stop "Global Warming".
"..the negative externalities of energy use, including local pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, mean that, other things being equal, an economy that burns less fuel is better off."
This coming from a guy that burns more fuel than all of us combined. His personal jet is so old, it uses much more than more modern planes.
But lest you feel major guilt driving your Prius, he'll be glad to sell you some "carbon credits". That'll make you feel better, while you turn up your thermostat in this cold weather.
And you TEApublicans would All have heart attacks en masse, if anything was even mentioned about Obama getting a new Air Force One. Not just because of the cost, but because it would be Obama that is getting it. You begrudge the food he eats because "YOUR" tax money pays for it most of the time, except when he and Michelle go out for dinner. You're bit*hing about the fuel his Air Force One uses right now...you'd be having seizures in the streets if he got a new Air Plane...spastic, foaming at the mouth, jerking fits...Nationwide! And that's if you survived the TEApublican Heart Failures at the mere MENTION of Obama getting a new Jet!
After all, a wagon and ONE Mule is good enough for Obama and he can swim if he has to go overseas for any reason because he ain't getting any of YOUR Tax Money for such luxuries as a NEW Jet Plane!

Thanks for posting that Tim. It is interesting and gives a good idea of what to expect. You do realize that it is a "draft" template/flowchart don't you? Meaning the answer to a question will take you to a different level or not. Since I do not have to claim your alcoholic brother-in-law nor any immigrants, I don't think it will be too bad.

Speaking of immigrants, that document dampens the myth that illegals will be getting "free" healthcare considering the number of questions and requirements for proof of legal status. Did you read it?
