You can't fight Santa!

Those of you get yourselves prepared. Others just don't have a clue and will shrivel by the wayside in the future.

<quoted text> too bad that has nothing to do with what I posted. So wanting to put more checks and balances on a federal reserve bank, one that gives trillions of dollars in loans to other countries secretly, is a benedict arnold? I mean I posted the absolute truth about that and all you can say is paul supporters think the government is "out to get them". Sounds like he knows what they're out to get to me. But you can ignore all the awesome links I posted and keep voting for the beltway double speaking politicians who appoint these assholes to positions of power. I won't be. I would at least like to see our elected officials oversee a whole hell of a lot more of the monitary policy.
Then vote. That's why we have that right. Of course, the downside of that is that when your choice is not elected, you have to deal with the one who is. Ron Paul is the VERY last person for whom I would have cast my ballot. Having done my research, I would rather have had Romney won than Paul, and I REALLY didn't like Romney's waffling. I do not trust fanatics of any sort, and the ones who are paranoid are the worst of the lot.

then your whole rant makes even less sense.

Face facts, you responded to my post because you wanted to make some retarded point, which made no sense, but you clearly thought was brilliant.

<quoted text> what "conservatives" are you mumbling about? I agree if you mean most of the beltway "republicans" but if you mean people posting you're retarded. They probably didn't vote for them. Look at the exit polls genius. 40% of usa citizens didn't vote at all, add that to the people who voted for romney. Obama represents smaller group when you lump eveyone together who disagrees with him, the way you do.
so then explain your retarded point

Ok, 40% of people don't vote ......how does that matter to anything? So this means that none of the people posting on topix voted?

Peopel who dont vote are obviously people who don't care about politics. Therefore, people who dont care about politics aren't likely to post about politics on the internet.

Are you starting to understand how weak your whole spew really is?

Don't pat any attention to the man behind the curtain. He's just a Washington politician scaring us to death with talk of the country going over the "fiscal cliff." What he doesn't want you to know is that "the fiscal cliff" being discussed in Washington is nothing more than dog and pony show. Why? Because the factors that drive our fiscal policy will not change regardless of whether a budget deal is struck next week or next month. As a result, we are already riding an unstoppable train toward $28 trillion in debt-an unsustainable burden that will cripple our economy, destroy our currency, and slash our paper investments. And no last-minute budget compromise is going to stop that. The bottom line? There is only one thing saving you and your money from launching over the fiscal cliff....Read more about this at www.wndbreakingnews.com

The committee people should all be replaced with some members that can get something done. They need to be concerned with more than if they can eat Chinese food today. What an ignorant bunch that is working on the Fiscal Cliff issue. They have made a laughingstock out of the U.S. in the eyes of the other nations of the world. How embarassing this is.

Congress is the deliberative legislative branch of Government not the President.
If you have a certificate of completion for 4th Grade is should be rescinded. It's stunning to find people so willing to debate politics and be absent elementary education on Government.
What's amazing is how any of you ever qualified for employment considering how little you are informed.

Horrible cover attempt!

YOU responded to my post with your studpiity about 40% of people not voting, as if it were even mildly related to the topic being discussed at the time.

Clearly, you think your dumb rant avout people not voting is simply brilliant, and you wanted to interject it, even though it is nowhere close to being pertinent.

Face facts, youre a retard!

This is ridiculous. We've experience a global economic collapse under the Bush Administration in Sept 2008. I don't recall during Financial Armageddon any civil disorder, civil war or race war in 2008, why are you so sure any of these events shall occur in America or is that your wish list?

America will be ok so long as we keep the Republicans out of positions to make economic decisions, at present they would like to duplicate the European means of dealing with debt, and the Europeans economy is moving backward, exactly like the American Economy was moving in the last days and time of the Bush Administration.
