This country is already doomed by the cultivation of hate masked as religion, prejudice masked as free speech, and a culture of "any means to an end", be it selling guns or lead-tainted toys or poisonous foodstuffs. You can go on and on, like the rich guy who has never actually labored one day of his life about the wastrels who live on government handouts, without ever having a flicker of direct knowledge about the subjects you claim to know. The liberals who fought to get clean drinking water and an end to child labor and a 40 hour working week are beneath your contempt, but that never stops the conservative from going home from the office, turning on the tap, and buying the kids another electronic toy from Walmart made in China. Only when your own ox is gored and you lose your job and understand what it is to be counting pennies to buy a package of ramen noodles may you give a rat's butt about anyone else. You are just another dumb feeder, happy to take the pablum handed to you, your feet on the coffee table with the Bible you neither read nor understand. No one will grow poor underestimating the depth of self-importance in a large part of the public. They'd rather live in apathy and get that black man out of the white house, by any and all means possible, rather than question why so many have so little, and they have even less and less than their parents had. Next time you take a deep drink from that tap, think about those evil liberals that fought to get you the water.

Stew, the only one thats going to kill this country is obummer the idiot because his whole agenda is about destroying our economy and making us all dependent on the government for a living. Thats why there are more people on food stamps than ever before and thats why many don't want to lose what they have, so they vote for him to keep the goodies coming, they don't have to work then. Its just another way of buying votes as he did when he gave 12 million illegal alien amnesty, all for the votes. This jerk is dangerous to this country and is out to hurt this country and our economy and he is a traitor and needs to go.

I love the work the tea party is doing and I will be out to vote for Romney to save this country and our economy before obummer destroys it.

Unfortunately Government Motors owes the employee pension fund more money than GM is worth right now. Thats shows the kind of thieves they are just like this admin. and obummer.

Obummer never even had a plan and still doesn't, he keeps following plans from past Presidents that failed and he thinks because he put them out there now, they are going to work this time. He hasn't got the brains God gave a 2 year old child, except to know how to destroy this country and then throw Isreal under a bus and leave them out there hanging by themselves. I Netenyahu's own words, " Isreal will not be here in ten years" because he knows obummer along with Iran will see it destroyed, and obummer take over as a dictator of what used to be America.
