I can see why. Gov't employees do what ever they want without any consequences. Starting with the president who encourages incompetence. Those that are the most incompetent get promoted.
NO one is held accountable and no one goes to jail for their crimes. ohbama has turned the American Gov't into a circuits of blunders and should have already been impeached But with him being black he gets a "get out of jail free" card.
The ag should have already been fired. Multiple people at the IRS should have been fired. Homeland security and the past Sec of State should have be fired and in jail too.
But no, ohbama and holder get to continue ruining America with no consequences insight. These two clowns should have been impeached and put in prison for crimes against America and Americans.
Their hate for (White) Americans and the American way of life is so obvious it tears me apart that these two criminals are allowed to keep their jobs. WHY?

Why should anybody trust present day tyranny of any sort in our nation's government. This is precisely why our declaration of independence and constitution was written so long ago.
Lest we forget.

This Obama administration has to be the worst in history.
The entire world is on fire due to Obama's policies.
And, domestically, trust is at an all time low.
Obama's told so many lies, it is no wonder!

So if it is so bad (the US government) maybe you should join together and overthrow the current government, or maybe just form one of your own.

I don't want to overthrow our gov't! I simply want it to return to the way it used to be before it began all of it's "do gooderism". There are many aspects of it I like (Constitution, Bill of Rights. Elections, etc) But there are many things about the present Govt that I would do away with. An old political saying goes like this, "When you're too many things to many people, You're nothing to anyone!" We're nothing to most people except a huge (and growing) pain in the ass!

ALL countries are built on idealism in case you didn't know it. Ours is built on freedom which includes freedom from an oppressive government.
You need to remember this.

IMPEACH ohbama and hurry before he destroys America. His divide and conquer is working. His two face, forked tongue ways are taking a toll on Americans that voted for this habitual liar.
Why is this IDIOT president that hates America and the American way of life still around. ohbama is the death of America. He is doing everything in his power to destroy America and so is holder.
These 2 clowns should be fired and in jail. Quit talking about it and do something. This administration is out of control. Breaking American laws and not giving a dam about you and me.
IMPEACH ohbama and fire holder ASAP!

I'm getting really tired of these blame America "professors" with their "Real Histories!" They like to focus on small examples of some perceived creulity and say how that is the "Real History" The real history is that we're the only country on the earth that paid for their land with enumerable "Purchases". Oh it wasn't enough? How did they know at the time? The white man happened to use the land to its highest and best use and that resulted in immense profits for them. Stop Whining! The US is one of the few nations that has withdrawn from lands captured in war. Cuba, The Phillipines, Mexico, Europe. What nation ever gave up it's captured nations without being driven out by force? England is the only one. Since you and your type love to deal in relative moralities, Read about the Mexican Govt's treatment of the indians, read about Russian treatment of the Ukrainians after annexing it.Read about the Russian treatment of the Alaskan Natives and how they were exploited brutally until America's PURCHASE of the place by William Seward in the 1860s. Same with the GADSEN purchase of Arizona and New Mexico. Every country that stuck it's nose into this hemisphere committed worse acts of barbarism than America. We owe the world nothing! But who is most likely to give disaster aid in the event it's needed? Don't make me puke! The World owes us! Every nation with a written constitution borrowed at least some of it from ours. America is the best thing to ever come along! Go study life under the Roman empire. Or the Soviet empire. Or the British in their far flung empire of penal colonies. Or Spain in the new world. Or the Dutch, or Portugees, or the French, or Belgians, or the Mongols, or the Huns. Then come back and tell me again how bad we are. And BTW, Obama's not doing so great with his policy of disengagement!

Impeach Obama? On what grounds, plant life? Because he's trying to make us a better, more humane country, and you right wing life forms are obstructing him at every turn?

Every damn traitorous teaslurper should be impeached. Or better yet, drop them off the nearest high rise.

Elizabeth Warren never claimed to be Native American. She did say she had Native American ancestry. There is a difference.

“BEING NATIVE AMERICAN has been part of my story I guess since the day I was born,” said Warren, who never mentioned her Native American heritage on the campaign trail even as she detailed much of her personal history to voters in speeches, statements and a video.“These are my family stories, I have lived in a family that has talked about Native American and talked about tribes since I was a little girl.”[14]

- Elizabeth Warren

You're full of shit, Magruder.
