Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

You have no idea whether he was guilty of anything, only what your government tells you (I know, they never lie) that's what a trial is for. If he's killed in a stand-off where he's committing crimes (like taking hostages, shooting at people) and he gets killed in the process that's a whole lot different than the government sending in a drone.
Don't know about you but I'm suspicious when the government silences someone then assures us "he was a bad guy".

"Artur Davis, Former Democratic Congressman, Will Switch Parties"

"... Davis, who represented Alabama's 7th congressional district for four terms as a member of the Democratic party, wrote on his website on Tuesday that he has not yet made up his mind on whether or not to run in the future. However, he has decided to change his party affiliation.

"If I were to leave the sidelines, it would be as a member of the Republican Party that is fighting the drift in this country in a way that comes closest to my way of thinking: wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities," Davis wrote in a blog post...."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/30/artu...

And from that blog post ...

"A Response to Political Rumors
Originally published in Official Artur Davis"

"Tuesday • May 29, 2012 • by Artur Davis"

" ... And the question of party label in what remains a two team enterprise? That, too, is no light decision on my part: cutting ties with an Alabama Democratic Party that has weakened and lost faith with more and more Alabamians every year is one thing; leaving a national party that has been the home for my political values for two decades is quite another. My personal library is still full of books on John and Robert Kennedy, and I have rarely talked about politics without trying to capture the noble things they stood for. I have also not forgotten that in my early thirties, the Democratic Party managed to engineer the last run of robust growth and expanded social mobility that we have enjoyed; and when the party was doing that work, it felt inclusive, vibrant, and open-minded.

But parties change. As I told a reporter last week, this is not Bill Clinton’s Democratic Party (and he knows that even if he can’t say it). If you have read this blog, and taken the time to look for a theme in the thousands of words (or free opposition research) contained in it, you see the imperfect musings of a voter who describes growth as a deeper problem than exaggerated inequality; who wants to radically reform the way we educate our children; who despises identity politics and the practice of speaking for groups and not one national interest; who knows that our current course on entitlements will eventually break our solvency and cause us to break promises to our most vulnerable—that is, if we don’t start the hard work of fixing it.

On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again. I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country. You have also seen me write that faith institutions should not be compelled to violate their teachings because faith is a freedom, too. You’ve read that in my view, the law can’t continue to favor one race over another in offering hard-earned slots in colleges: America has changed, and we are now diverse enough that we don’t need to accommodate a racial spoils system. And you know from these pages that I still think the way we have gone about mending the flaws in our healthcare system is the wrong way—it goes further than we need and costs more than we can bear...."

"Penn. Democratic leader defects to GOP, cites Catholic faith as reason"
"The defection of a prominent Pennsylvania Democrat to the Republican Party is raising some eyebrows.
Jo Ann Nardelli, a state committeewoman and founding president of the Blair County Federation of Democratic Women, has switched her political affiliation to the GOP, citing her Catholic faith and President Obama’s embrace of gay marriage as reasons....
According to Politics PA, Nardelli continued to point to her Catholic faith as a major motivator in her letter of resignation to the Pennsylvania Democratic Party.
“I respect all of you and all that I have achieved in the past. Due to personal matters and faith beliefs at this time, it is only fair to resign,” she wrote.“I will miss you all very much as you are all a part of my family; however, it is time to move forward with my life in a direction that is more in line with my faith.”

The same sort of "legislation" that makes people slaves? Dependant on the Government from cradle to grave?

You mean that sort of LIFE-SUPPORT SYSTEM?

Sure America can. 70 years ago we locked-up American citizens during WWII because they had slanted eyes until the war was over. Supreme Court ruled it was Okay back then to do it.

Given the choice of either of these two witches, waterboarding is like taking a shower.
So true. The term Torture was used after WWII to convict Japanese Leaders of war crimes before they were put to death. Water Boarding was part of the charges against them as being Torture. Bush and Dick changed all that.

Did I write that? It sounds vaguely familiar. What I was saying is that the office of the President has become Imperious and that it didn't start with Obama.
