    Senator Rand Paul (R) spoke at the opening of the GOP's African-American Engagement Office in Detroit, Michigan. The office is part of the Republican Party's attempt to draw in more blacks to their party, as blacks overwhelmingly favor Democrats than they do Republicans.

    But those in attendance for the opening, well... don't look quite so African-American.

    The African-Americans, as it turns out, were mostly on the outside, protesting.

    African-Americans and Republicans only mix for brief periods of time in the most awful emulsion any chemist can imagine.

    ok here goes: Obamacare will screw over the middle class in an attempt prevent the baby boomer's heathcare needs from bankrupting the Tresaury.

    The constant deficit spending and unbacked credit creation by the Fed will continue to depress wages and prevent job growth.

    $18 TRILLION is debt (they think, it's probably waaay low balled) means we pay a FULL 10% of the Federal budget on SHIT (interest payment on the federal debt).

    No party really wants to address the obvious as this country slowly sinks into hell.

    You damn well know it's true too - go ahead, debate me on it.

    "Gays serving openly will destroy the military."
    "Ending the Bush tax cuts will kill the economy."
    "Obamacare will bankrupt America into hellfire and brimstone."
    "Romney will win."

    I love these bizarre doom and gloom predictions from the right that never come to pass.

    lol you fools are so clueless, but I love the apples and oranges approach

    so spending 10% of the Federal budget on interest payments is healthy eh? Right.

    and the unbacked credit creation (if you even know what that means, which I highly doubt) by the Fed and the Treasury has just done wonders for the middle class and poor RIGHT? hahahahahahaha.

    The largest Federal deficits to GDP since WW2 and we have NOTHING to show for it. Yeah the lower and middle classes find some shit job in retail or food service or some lousy $24/yr healthcare job and you idiots think everything is just peachy lol.

    Obamacare is just a desperate attempt to transfer wealth to insurance from the 26-50 year old's to keep the cost of the dying baby boomers from bankrupting the states and the Treasury. It ain't gonna be better and it ain't gonna be cheaper.

    Oh, you mean that noose that Reagan tied. That Clinton tried to untie against Republican Congressional resistance. That Bush then snugged up around our necks real tight, and Republicans once again have fought to prevent a Democrat President from removing. With the goal not of helping US citizens, but of sabotaging a Democratic Administration so they can take power.

    Yeah, I know that noose. And I hope Republicans fall victim to the old adage: "Give them enough rope..."

    nah $18 Trillion in debt (more like $20-30 Trillion with off budget bullshit not counted) is more than enough rope.

    The country has been screwed by both these hack parties.

    All this money spent on education and the US is 25th-30th is reading, science and math worldwide now. hahahahaha what a farce.

    5% of the population owns 95% of the wealth under the Reps and the Dems - hahahahaha what a farce.

    somersault, I know you;re trolling, but this is an odd statement from you: "Obamacare is just a desperate attempt to transfer wealth to insurance from the 26-50 year old's to keep the cost of the dying baby boomers from bankrupting the states and the Treasury. It ain't gonna be better and it ain't gonna be cheaper."

    Why would the dying of the baby boomers bankrupt the states etc? Look: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-02-24/dont-weep-for-boomers-close-to-retirement

    A lot of them are very healthy financially, which may very well mean they will be subsidizing younger peoples' insurance. You do know that retirement income is taxed just like employment income, I hope.

    Look at this: http://www.businessinsider.com/baby-boomers-are-about-to-inherit-84-trillion-2011-3

    ...and guess what? In your country those inheritances will also have the crap taxed out of them. Feel better now?

    i'm not trolling, but the states are already paying 30-40% of total tax revenues on healthcare costs. Maybe "dying" was a poor choice of words, but as you get 55-60+, you incur more healthcare costs.

    We all know the boomers will demand full body part and organ replacements lol

    Spermin' Herman Cain (via AddictingInfo)“The RNC sent out a flyer to some of its members talking about potential 2016 presidential candidates. Do you know what they had in common? … ,” he said. “They were all white.” Where was Allen West. Where was Dr. Ben Carson. And have they ruled out the possibility that I might consider another run?”
