More left versus right articles.

The more one opens their eyes to the media, one can really begin to see what they are. Megaphones to keep the people from uniting.

To keep the people constantly in a state of argument whether a sociopathic politician or official (Official Asshole) is either a democrat or republican.

Wake up people, the media is manipulating you.

Here is a perfect example of this.

Syria.

For the first time in the past 50 years the people have finally come together. This showed the fatigue of endless warfare with true rhyme or reason and no true cause to the welfare of Americans. The people spoke with calls to Congress in the range of 300-1 against a strike and a war against Syria.

For the first time in 50 years the people united in 1 cause. A cause of having enough with these foreign entanglements. Exactly what Washington told us not to get involved in.

And what happened? Within a month of the people unifying as one (or a very very very large majority), the people are sucked back into an argument of Democrat or Republican and pointing fingers blaming left or blaming right.

Then we as a people are back where we started.

United we stand, divided we fall. This is what the established politicians and media want. They want a divided nation. For a unified nation of people hold all of the power and they have none.

Starting to see the manipulation?

"Has the shutdown fight dimmed Ted Cruz's standing in the GOP?"....what a joke.

The GOP needs to be in good standing with Cruz. Cruz has exposed the difference between the "real" conservative and the fake ones. McCain, King and multitudes more have been exposed. The ARE NOT conservatives...so again... The GOP needs to be in good standing with Cruz.

Easy to like a decent health care system, not so easy to like the games Cruz is playing.

Creatures produced in failed lab experiments do not receive birth certificates. Cruz may soon be found in the spare parts section at Under-The-Rug.com .

Tea Party paranoia is running wild, as they all keep parroting the ravings of their leaders.

"Smaller government, smaller government, smaller government ...awk!"

If you ask them what they would like to cut, it's like asking them whom they would like to hurt most. They haven't been taught more diplomatic ways to finesse that.

Obamacare is the worst thing to happen to this nation since slavery. Makes one subservient to the government. It's not about health, it's about control.

Having used the French and British health system, I wouldn't trade their system for ours. Not in a million years.

These Tea Party kooks are dropping like flies. I used to think Dr. Carson showed signs of a brain. But it has been invaded by spores.
Remember this moment, Dr. Carson. And welcome to oblivion.

According to the republicants, Cruz doesn't have a strategy either:

“It was very evident to everyone in the room that Cruz doesn’t have a strategy – he never had a strategy, and could never answer a question about what the end-game was,” said one senator who attended the meeting.“I just wish the 35 House members that have bought the snake oil that was sold could witness what was witnessed today at lunch.”

I don't even believe that. I remember one account of a women coming here to get treated because she was having to wait to long for treatment, if she hadn't come to this country she would have died. I've heard many more similar accounts. I think your full of bull.
