    It’s either that or lose ALL sense of what we are as a country.

    Well, the only way to go more left is to head toward Havana.

    The problem is not that a reasonable and moderate right turn with a candidate like John Huntsman would not be possible. The problem is, that such a candidate could never even get nominated past the vigilant ultra right wing tea party types. After getting the nomination by sounding like someone to the far fight of Rush Limbaugh, then such a candidate would have to then become far more moderate to even stand a chance of becoming the president. This was Mitt Romney’s real problem in the last election, and what really kept him out of the White House. And, as this is not going to change between now and the 2016 election, I would say that Hillery Clinton is going to be the next president if she actually chooses to run. It is kind of a sorry state of affairs for the Republican Party, but that is the truth of the matter!!

    To get nominated you have to make Rush L look like a liberal, then to get elected you have to look like Ron R. who today would be a liberal.

    Look where the machine has taken him so far.
    Following broken ideas has got the US to this point and not changing direction means we will keep on going down.
    Egypt is a good example of where we are going, only we are much larger and will fall much further.

    Those hoping for that “right turn” will be pleased to see this article from North Carolina.
    The Republican dominated state capital has passed laws making it much harder for students, particularly out of state students, to vote in NC.
    In one college town that once had two precincts in which to vote, there is now, barring legal challenges, only going to be one in which the college students/staff AND the townspeople to vote. Witnesses said they had to wait in lines several hours during the last two election, now they’ll have to wait even longer.
    These types of measures, taken in the name to prevent a miniscule amount of on site voter fraud, is going to make it harder for hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions, of legal voters from being able to do so unless they are very educated and prepared. This will effect republicans and libertarians as well, but the conservatives in Raleigh don’t mind if a few of their own are suppressed as long as a large number of liberals are suppressed.
    If this was being done in a ‘blue state’, I would be equally outraged. NO legal voter should be forced to jump through hoops or stand in lines for hours just to vote. Early voting is a tool for the handicapped, for those who have to be out of town, for the elderly, and those who have to work on election day.
    Some of these laws passed in NC will be costing taxpayers money as NC will be going to court to defend their actions, some of which fly in the face of decisions previously made in SCOTUS.
    It may be legal, but it is neither ethical or moral and is being done for reasons that are dishonorable and self serving.

    Maybe Lisa means at the mid-terms. There will be enough lemmings following the media’s recommendation to vote for Hillary Clinton that I bet she will be president if she wants it in 2016.

    Turn right if you’re heading for the next recession. Anyone remember the big crash?

    A desert. Good Choice, Lisa. “An international panel of scientists has found with near certainty that human activity is the cause of most of the temperature increases of recent decades, and warns that sea levels could conceivably rise by more than three feet by the end of the century if emissions continue at a runaway pace.” Turning right, just what the Doctor ordered. The assisted suicide Doctor.

    It’s as a result of the right’s participation that the economy is so close to a standstill now.

    In FL we have had that same crap for years.

    The hard part is finding a driver who doesn’t want to make a U-turn and head to Dickensian England.

    Honey, we don’t have to “remember” the big crash. We’re still smack-dab in the middle of it with no end in sight.

    Exactly! And now we all suffer by paying at the Obama “tollbooth”.
