    The Dems took control of Congress in 06 promising the most ethical and open Congress in history, among other things. Obama won the presidency in 08. Dems have virtually controlled gov't for the last 5 years and we see the results: record deficits, record unemployment, and record poverty. Abroad we have been defeated in Iraq and Afghanistan, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Our allies are angry with us and our enemies are gloating.
    Is this enough for the American people to say we have had enough euro-socialism in our lives? Will Americans vote the scoundrels out in 2012 and relegate the Democrats to the status of Whig Parrty of the 21st century?

    The real question for people not blinded by political partisanship is:

    When will the American people overturn of the sham of the two party system that, thanks to nearly 40 years of anti-working class policies and tax policies, has brought us record deficits, record unemployment, and record poverty?

    Also record prosperity.
    I would take the two party system over any other system I've seen.

    You're missing his point Rabbi. Don't be so blinded by Party loyalty that you put it before your country. As you know, George Washington was against Political Parties because it would do exactly what's happening now.

    Face the facts: The Two Party system is the best way to Divide and Conquer us isn't it? Then Liberal vs. Conservative after that.

    Obama is doing the same things that Bush did before him. There's a reason for that: Special Interests and International Bankers own the vast majority of Politicians. If the partisans would take their blinders off they'd see that.

    Obama is doing the same things as Bush? Are you kidding? When did Bush rail against millionaires and billionaires? Who wrote Bush's No Child Left Behind bill? How many Democrats voted for war with Iraq?

    I would take the 2 party system over any other system I've seen in other countries.

    No right now I am supporting Ron Paul cause he wants to cut funding to the status quo corporate pigs that have there hands out to the government. GOP gives nominationates Mit, Rick, or Cain and I will be voting for more Obama. I suspect most indipendants agree with me.

    You been Hannitized!

    This is an oft repeated lie, spoken by right wing political pundents, which has no real basis in fact.

    After the '06 elections, the Senate was 49 Dems to 49 Repubs, with two independents, and one of those independents campaigned for McCain.

    How does that equate to controlling the Senate?

    In the House, yes...the Dems had about a 30 vote majority...out of 435 members!

    Wow! That's some control of congress, isn't it?
