    I have always had the stance that the only reason our country is in such a mess is because the politicians cannot simply sit down and talk things out, at least that's what I thought. Recently I have discovered how wrong I was, it's not the politicians, they seem to know what they are doing now. It's their supporters. Each new story and bill seems aimed at getting their voters to bicker more and more, keeping us from ever sitting down and talking. Both "sides" of every debate thus far have resorted to talking points, catch phrases, and just plain old ranting. So when do we, the people, stop and say enough is enough? When do we actually take control back from the politicians? When do we stand up and become Americans again?

    The answer: When we stop supporting the politicians.

    And support each other and the Constitution. Thanks KK

    The only side, should be the side of freedom and security from enemies foriegn and domestic.

    We have to fight for that as Americans.

    I believe many who fight us here on this forum and elsewhere are not even Americans.

    Those who are not Americans that oppose our Constitutional rights, have something at stake

    All Americans need to read, understand, and support the Constitution.

    Boy, have you got that right. Politicians react to what gets them elected.

    And its not really the supporters. It is the strident supporters. It is the strident supporters who are the ones driving the strident rhetoric and divisions.

    While the rest I agree with, that particular statement is part of the problem. We have to stop thinking about it as "us versus them" and start thinking we are Americans again. The 'us' should be any legal citizen, and 'them' should be anyone who is not. There shouldn't be a bickering between the left and right. Debate and discussion are important, but not all this attacking each other. We are all Americans, Republican and Democrat supporter, liberal and conservative, we need each other to make this country what it once was because that's what made this country great.

    Hatred, when is it too much?

    When people start calling the duly elected President of the United States of America a Nazi and his wife, the mother of his children, a bitch and a ho. And those are the people who claim to be "Christian".

    I've actually been contemplating taking a break from this place because it is too painful of a scene to watch for me....being that touchy, sensitive and empathetic to what others feel and go through type of person! :eek:

    You really should read the rest of the post. Thanks for proving that you are part of the problem though. ;)

    I am sorry KK, but there are operatives that are paid to belittle and fight on these types of forums, and they are also paid to blog

    They are alinskyites, and obamatrons, in the highest order

    But I understand your concern. It goes against my grain to be a fighter, but when I see my freedom and the Constitution being defamed and used as fodder for the leftists of the world, I cannot sit back and just allow it to go unanswered. That is where the GOP made their biggest mistakes in the past, that is why they are now impotent
