Is he not bumping threads? Is he not repeating the same things over and over again? Is the content of his posts not intended to provoke an angry repsonse?

Obama is really working on that redistribution of wealth he promised.  According to the Department of Labor, unemployment "insurance" paid out $10.3 billion in benefits in 2012 to people who weren't eligible (and that's saying a lot.)

Given that the program paid out $90.2 billion, that means the Federal-State Unemployment Insurance program’s rate of impropriety for the year hit 11.4 percent.

Boo hoo. Why not talk about the $76 billion in corporate welfare in the fiscal cliff deal?

Because the Republican Party offered up Romney, a man who previously lost the Republican nomination to a candidate (John McCain) who lost to Obama. Add to that, Romney is hardly a conservative. All the people I know voted for Romney only because they perceived him as the lesser of two evils. Many of them wanted to vote for Ron Paul, and would've voted for Gary Johnson if they thought he had a chance. I know many democrats and libertals that would've voted for Ron Paul over Obama, despite having voted for Obama in the past. The Republican Party did everything they could to lose the election.

And under Romney the Rich would get a tax break while the middle class suffers, entitilement programs will be cut, and the all the angry nutjobs will keep all their violent gun rifles--but we all should be happy, Obama was the right choice, and look, the economy is growing again.

Under Romney, the political elite would still get their bailouts (he was a fan of TARP and both parties have overseen their fair share of bailouts for decades), entitlement programs would still continue, unconstitutional wars would still continue, a gun ban would most likely continue as no doubt Romney would compromise to gain something else he wanted. Little difference exists between Republicans and Democrats. They simply fight for the power to unconstitutionally redestribute wealth.

Exactly.... And to gain more and more power.  It's almost funny watching Dems complain about Republicans when Republicans are in power.... and then when Democrats take control.... they expand the powers that the Republicans created (to which the Republicans then complain.)

President Obama only appears, on the surface, to be a great president (to those who support him) because he's inherited a huge mess and, appears to hold up to most of his campaign platform when he first ran.  However, the ideas he presented are not all that new.. or even helpful.  But people are so caught up in holding onto ideals, the chance for real change is buried under a sense of security.  


Real change requires taking risks and sacrifice.  I have seen no real risks or sacrifices offered or made from Obama supporters.. or Obama's administration.  The "Obamacare" bill was the safe route addressing health care today.  However, there are other options that could have brought true reform.  Bailing out several inudstries and companies is not new (remember when Regan bailed out Crysler?)  This only serves to encourage them to make the same mistake again and again.   I could go on, but I have seen DC (both parties) offer the exact same bills (they call them solutions)  These bills have only prolonged and worsened our economic system. 


Americans all want the same thing; to be prosperous, healthy and content with our lives.  Surely, we can find common ground in "life, liberty and the persuit of happiness" right?? We used to put aside our differences and found what we have in common.


Can we at least talk about what we do agree on first?  Pretty please?? I'm exhasted of reading both sides just bitching.

Unfortunately, not all Americans want the same thing - we've seen people here argue for the exact opposite of "life, liberty and the persuit of happiness."  We cannot have those things if we take them from someone else.

Intersting Gallup poll:


61% of small business are ‘worried’ over medical care costs.  30% are not going to do any hiring over fear of going out of business

We all agree that freedom is good and tyranny is bad.


We just disagree on what those words actually mean.

Wow.. reading through this was depressing. It would be much more interesting if there had been any mention of politics.


Now, I'm not American but Norwegian, over here we vote for parties not people. It seems strange to me to vote for a person. We would never get stuck with a presient because of who he or she is, but because of the party he or she represents. Political commercials are banned, but there still is some "hidden" anti and pro stuff for various parties on the news and debate programs. I think some would say we're not truly democratic because of the way the elections work.


Anyway I just wanted to ask what you think about it. Do Americans vote for the person or for the party or for his/her political standing? I've never been to America and don't know any Americans so I'm really just curious how you see it.


Resistance is futile. You will all love Star Trek.
