Eric Holder is essentially a criminal for his gun running scheme that killed a US Agent. The fact that he's Not on trial speaks volumes about the blatant disregard for the rule of Law in the Obama administration.

We need to wage a broad ideological war against Leftists at all levels of society. It will be ugly and unpleasant, drawn out and full of surprises and reversals. But in the end we have a much stronger case to make, and one that can still resonate with the majority of Americans. Romney’s election will be only one more step in this struggle, but if we don’t harness at least as much commitment to our goal to roll back government encroachment on individual freedom as leftists do, we will lose in the long run. The battle against the media will be perhaps the single most crucial front in the war (though it goes hand in glove with the battle against leftist academia, some of the big leftist unions, rogue government bureaucracies, the leftist think-tanks, UN globalists, and ultimately, the shadowy financiers who are bankrolling and directing this attempted coup). We need to simultaneously appeal to the conservatives in their ranks to help us however they can, and isolate and destroy the leftists, starting with the easiest targets first. We can only apply pressure on the entire apparatus, watch for openings, and strike with full force when they occur. We can build some momentum in this way, but the opening salvos will be crucial. So we will have to make use of the levers of power to maximum effect while we have them; because we will not get a second chance. The good news as that Leftists have a fatal weakness that they are %100 blind to, and will never be able to perceive. They are not psychologically tuned to it, which is why they are Leftists in the first place…

Its serious people,Romney 2012 Or Else?????

If it's a conservative value Holder will oppose it. Liberal-Marxists would like a country full of pot headed zombies. They're easier to manipulate and control.

Oh, come on! We can get the country out of debt by legalizing pot. All we have to do is is farm pot and sell it like cigarettes to the Middle East for quadruple the price as they do with us with oil. War would decline in the Middle East because they would be too stoned to continue any conflict.

Dems Said to End Convention $15 Million Short... Yep, Short of Viewers, Short of Cash, Short of Ethics, Short of Rain Storms, Short of God and Short Of Voters.

White House to miss deadline for report on 'fiscal cliff' budget cuts... Of course the White House isn't going to show you anything on paper........especially like a plan..........but they keep asking to see Romney's.

8.1% unemployment is a lie...It is9.1% counting the 368,000 that dropped out.....14.7% counting all under employeed...If Obama can just get a million more to quit looking.........he can proclaim his 7% the week befoe election.........without providing one job...

So holder says if you change your laws to something we don't like we are going to come in to your community and make it be what we want not what you want.

He needs the fines from marijuana to pay for his drug running to mexico.

This may be a hard sell, Holder and Obama only like to sue states that try to implement the existing laws that Obama and Holder don't want to enforce. After all Barry, by his own admission, was either high or drunk throughout high school, what's to say a little recreational "smoking" isn't still going on? I think we will be hearing crickets on this issue.

Since when do you teabaggers oppose states' rights???

If a state decides to legalize marijuana, shouldn't the Topix teabaggers offer their full throated defense of local government making these decisions for themselves?

After all, Teabag Nation would be stinking hypocrites to support big government dictating values from Washington DC, right?
