    Pffffffffft.

    You're a Fabian socialist/progressive, who hasn't he nerve to admit it.

    But thanks for stopping by to confirm to us all what poseurs that so-called "independents" are.

    This is the culmination of twenty years of screwheads in dc. We're now at the precipice of the cliff.....and leaning forward.

    There is an old story of a manager of a baseball team being asked by reporters who lost the game for them. His answer.

    "No ONE man lost this game, everyone did thier part to make sure it happened. It was a real team effort"

    Actually, it has been over a century.

    The progressive era pretty much started with the presidency of the original neocon: Teddy Roosevelt.

    Registered republican

    Both parties and Bush started it. Obama is making it worse.

    I will volunteer my time for whatever my local party needs come election time. I will also donate whatever I can afford to give after Obama is done digging in my wallet.

    We never really heard much about a budget crisis until the Democrats took over the Congress and Presidency. Until then debt and deficit as a percentage of GDP were fairly in check. Since Obama took office spending has grown while the recession has made receipts fall. His policies made both of those worse.
    Now the GOP is trying to claw back some semblence of discipline. And Obama can only offer cuts 10 and 12 years down the road and empty finger wagging.

    That's true. I think the creation of the fed was another milestone in our decline too.

    American ignorance and apathy.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVFe1rLKA1k]YouTube - ‪Amy Goodman spoils MSNBC's Birthday - Where's Donahue?‬‏[/ame]

    My America is hardly a place of freedom, rock n roll, and liberal media. My America is a shallow remnant of what could be.

    It was only a matter of time before the Ponzi scam that is the Federal Reserve came to a head.

    Boiking's chief problems are the he's pouring more gasoline into the Molotov cocktail, too ignorant to recognize it, and too arrogant to have anybody but ass-kissing yesbois surrounding him.
