    The fat elephants want to blame all the economic problems on President Obama and conveniently forget that President Bush created the mess we are in. Similar to President Clinton following Reagan/Bush.

    Make no mistake about it.....Bush started the mess, but Obama is continuing to turn this country into a police state. Neither side has our best interest in mind.

    Your Democrats are to the right of the most rightwing parties in many other countries. I think some people are not aware of this.

    That is the absolute truth. Both republicans and democrats are fascist control freaks.

    Yes, but it's because that's the only way they can get elected. In other words, blame the electorate, not the elected officials.

    And that's the cold sad truth.
    Why people keep believing campaign promises throughout the decades, I'll never understand.

    Because they only want to believe what is favorable to them and ignore everything else.

    There are big differences between Democrats and Republicans, differences that have effected the outcomes of elections. You certainly don't have Democrats believing in legitimate rape or trying shut down the government at every turn.

    Every turn? I thought that trying to protect America from the wasteful and stupid Obamacare was a good thing. We can all see how it is failing (of course, the Left will refute this).

    And legitimate rape? If you think that every Republican thinks that, then you're not thinking a whole lot.

    And the point about delusion is proven. Have you not seen the threats made by Republicans in the House to shut down the government every time it's time to negotiate over finances and finances come up a lot.

    When Todd Akin talked about legitimate rape, a lot of Republicans blamed the media for taking him "out of context" and that he didn't say anything wrong at all. Even the NRSC continued funding him. It was mainly Democrats that condemned Akin's comments, not Republicans.

    I know. It's not so much about Left or Right to me, but the constant erosion of our rights. I'm terrified where this country is heading.

    Roll out of any brand new e-commerce platform will have bugs. They are trying to sign up hundreds of millions of customers. Even a software company would have issues. The bugs do not negate the need to fix healthcare.


    Yeah, these bugs have been going on for quite some time now and they're ruining people's healthcare plans and now affecting small business.

    Not looking up.

    You say that, SS, yet America has been able to remain one of the most powerful and successful nations of the world for decades if not centuries.

    Are you sure it's as horrific as you say?
