Indeed, I don't doubt the concern of many on this site. I do sometimes doubt the willingness to look for "real" solutions. I don't know many Conservatives that want to nuke the world and I don't know many Liberals that want free goods for the lazy.
The solution isn't a one party thing...it's a combination of both. Both have some good points and ideology. Unfortunately, they are more concerned with party than people.
I do get tired of my Far right friends that bitch about everything and abuse the system themselves. I can't believe some say the things they do when they know I am familiar with their history. I guess it's a mindset we're all capable of producing? self preservation and denial of the truth.
Can't say for sure when this all started and it may have always been around. To vote the party line is wrong! A senator or congressman should vote for what's right. I know that's not always easy to do, but it should be tried.

We had a Congressman for something like 38 years. He was a democrat long before they all jumped ship and became Republicans. His name was Sonny Montgomery, the GI Bill Sonny Montgomery. He voted for what was right, pretty much down the middle. He did so well that the Democrats certainly weren't going to run anybody against him and neither did the Republicans. He think he was pretty much unopposed for well of 20 years.

His kind of record is what all our congressional leaders should do. Vote for what's right. Most in congress today have an agenda. I know some of our older Senators from years ago did. Eastland certainly did and was extremely racist. Stennis was a pretty good guy and did a lot like Montgomery did. Stennis was hell on wheels for the military....and never spent a day in it. Montgomery on the other hand started as an enlisted guy during WWII and retired as a general.

Stay in the middle, compromises on both sides and stay away from wild swings left or right and this country will be what it is capable of being.

It would be welcome! Imagine....putting the people and country first?
As you know....we, the voters could demand this...but first we need to differentiate between reality and fantasy.

Nice post Mississippian. I have tons of respect for congress-critters who are willing to buck their party headquarters--be it the RNC or the DNC-- and do what they feel is right for the country and their states or districts, I just don't see that happening too much on the right these days. Still, I agree with you that voting a straight ticket is not healthy for the country. Each party needs to be held accountable...even by its presumed solid constituency.

I could be wrong, but I didn't think Montgomery ever actually switched parties.

He never did, always the Democrat. He was a dear friend of mine and I flew him all over the place. Great guy. Never married.

Soooo, I get an e-mail this morning accusing Obama of not bypassing the Jones act to let foreign ships help us with the Gulf spill.

I start researching and sure enough.....Fox has it pegged!

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2010/06/21/rob...

Lots of "Right wing" sites seem to have this "problem" covered.

Again....it's not true. Where are the retractions?
Why won't we see this on Fox?

http://www.factcheck.org/2010/06/oil-spill-fo...

Fair and balanced my ass.

I should put the Hannity telling Obama to apologize for saying we're not a Christian nation.

Maybe I'll start a thread of all the bullshit reporting flowing out of Fox like a bad case of Montezuma's revenge.

Think of the people that would be slinging mud if CNN reported like this?

A decent summary of lies (both sides) perpetuate on the spill.
