    7. None of the above.
    They might claim they do but once in office it is business as usual.

    That's the BEST answer. NONE OF THE ABOVE. 99% of the politicians (including the politicians in the judiciary) are responsible for 100% of this country's problems.

    Those people are the REAL "99".

    We get the government we deserve. Not one politician is there because the plurality of voters didn't want him to be there.

    We get the government we deserve.

    They are actually the views of the John Birch Society. Not much has changed with the radical rightwing in 50 years......different names but same extremist nonsense

    John Birch Society - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    . The society upholds an originalist interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, which it identifies with fundamentalist Christian principles, seeks to limit governmental powers, and opposes wealth redistribution, and economic interventionism. It not only opposes practices it terms collectivism, Totalitarianism, and communism, but socialism and fascism as well, which it asserts is infiltrating US governmental administration.

    The society opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, claiming it violated the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and overstepped individual states' rights to enact laws regarding civil rights. The society opposes "one world government", and has an immigration reduction view on immigration reform. It opposes the United Nations, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), and other free trade agreements. They argue the U.S. Constitution has been devalued to favor of political and economic globalization

    So, the left:

    1. Does not believe in original intent
    2. Does not identify with fundamentalist Christian principals
    3. Seeks to expand government power
    4. Seeks to redistribute wealth
    5. Believes government should intervene in the economy
    6. Believes the Fed is a good thing.

    Well, thanks for admitiing that what we've been saying for decades is true.
