No longer interested. You're an idiot. You made the claim you bring the proof or just keep playing with yourself. I'm not interested in your little talking point life.
Move along and have a nice day.
Right.

You were pwned, fool.

Seems to me he can watch Congress stall and filibuster while he's on the trail the same as he can while in Washington.
Sure - since that's all he's been doing - sitting on the side, trimming sails and watching. In Obobo's case, I agree with you.

Now, if he were the REAL LEADER the Office of the President is supposed to be occupied by, it would be different ...

Okay, so don't vote for Obama and don't vote for Romney. I hate to break it to you but those are your choices. It is about the lesser of evils and to me it's clear. Keep what we've got and hope pressure at least brings some controls on campaign finance.
The country gave the maniac Cheney/Bush two terms and they brought us to our knees. Romney works for the top 1% and can't disguise it, hard as he tries. I'm among the 99%. The choice is clear.
In case your dense like so many on this forum, I will make it plain that I agree with the jist of your post, if not all the details.
You've missed the entire point of my post. Both of these parties are harming the country. Research the examples I used, they are ALL true.

Just because we had 8 years of the tyrant from the party you root against, should not mean we should have 8 years of the tyrant from the party that you sadly root for.

My point is that the whole system is a mirage. The left/right paradigm is false. Look into the things I wrote and it will become clear to you.

I didn't miss your point. What I said (to paraphrase) is what is your alternative for November?

There is little hope for this election, as most Americans are still sound asleep. Everyone is distracted arguing about political football issues while BOTH PARTIES further the agenda of war, destroying civil liberties, and devaluing the dollar.

We all have to work at waking people up to this, and in November we need to STOP VOTING for republicans and democrats. We have to rise up and take our republic back from the bankers that own our politicians and government.

Again, we're not likely to accomplish anything other than electing a tyrant this Nov. but we need to spread the message of liberty anyway.

So, presuming everything you wrote is true, your idea is to not vote in this upcoming election, is that right?

Everything I wrote is true and on record. Even if the media ignores something, it can still be true.

I will be voting, just not for republicans or democrats.

Teddy I've been reading and posting to this thread for a few days now. Everyone, well most anyway are aware of what is taking place in Washington and in this thread.

About 1/2 are conservative to the point they really don't want a government of any kind regulating anything whatsoever. At least that's how I'm reading it. The other half doesn't want a repeat of the path and choose to go with someone who at a minimum seems to talk sense regardless of whether the conservative side seems to think of him.

Regardless of what is said to support Obama or even defend him, the conservative side is going to attack it in any means necessary to include taking things out of context, deny it or outright lie about it.

No one can lie, make things up or take things out of context on his opponent Romney. He's been doing that all on his own and even his fellow Republicans are stating this fact.

I for one am not fond of Sen McCain myself but even he is leery of Obama's opponent.

You and I have common ground on this. My question would be why has no one followed up on the suggestions that were made alluding to this. Prep For Dep pretty much stated this a few times himself. I for one messaged him about organizing something to follow up on this. He and I have messaged folks from several threads on at least trying to organize something and no takers. All anyone wants to do is slam whoever and not do a dammed thing beyond bitch.

How can Obama offer anyone a job? Do you actually mean he's going to put all these young people to work in the White House? Exactly what kind of power do you think he has anyway? We don't elect Kings or Dictators in the U.S or were you unaware of this?

I think members of both parties should make the President of the United States so disrespected that everyone in both this country and other countries will just ignore him and give him the finger if he "offers his hand."

And, the President of the United States job description should be changed to "Official Scapegoat and Whipping Boy."

400k plus the pension, the perks and the chance to make millions more after their term seems like plenty to me.
frankly just like the teachers, throwing more money at the problem won't fix it. it is not about money it is about accountability.
when obama can parade around the country on campaign stops rather then doing the job he is supposed to do then something is wrong,
just like it was wrong for obama as a senator to be paid to campaign for president rather then do his job.
what we need is more accountability, we need the corrupt like obama, rangel, waters, pelosi, frank, meeks, towns, emanuel to be held accountable for unethical and criminal behavior and to be thrown out of office, and potentially into jail depending on the offense.
but because the politicians control their punishments that is not happening, and a vote every few years by citizens is not going to change that, especially when the corrupt media support these corrupt politicians as long as they are liberal democrats.
Supposeing that CEO's of multi-national corporations in the US are paid as they should be, can you logically and rationally explain why the President should make less than any of them much less all of them.

I have no problem with that. As long as I get to keep all that money I send to the Feds, and get back all that I've paid in for almost 40 years, plus interest.
The money you sent to the Feds for the most part is gone. But I will say that they should refund all monies currently held on pro rata basis.

But they have to keep the taxes after they end the program just to balance the budget.
