    Please do. Let those idiots take care of the military and collecting taxes to pay for it. That’s all, leave the rest to the states.

    Yeah! Who needs the Constitution and the stupid Bill of Rights anyway!?!? Oops, wait, that’s not right… We’re supposed to be the UNITED States of America.

    A friend told me their pastor and boss had given them information that has convinced my friend Mr. Obama is a terrorist wanting to bring down America. To what end Mr. Obama would want his daughters’ country weakened to such a degree was not explained.
    I am grateful to all of those in GC who have taught me how to communicate in such a way as to avoid the kind of argument my conversation with my friend might have incurred. With a deep sigh, a moment of silence with prayer for wisdom and presence of mind, I suggested we agree to disagree and moved on to another topic. I suggested we sit down with laptops soon and ‘prove’ our points, but was told that wouldn’t be possible as some of the sources were ‘classified’.
    I met their pastor at a wedding and he is also against mixed marriage, gays, and the construction of mosques. This will probably endear him to some here.
    Our legislators are creating a divide not seen since the Civil War. We are totally gridlocked, a fact celebrated under another of today’s posted cartoons by conservatives who feel gridlock is the only protection from Obama’s agenda.
    This is painful. Had Romney been elected I would have done what I did when Bush was president…. write letters, vote, and when all else failed, work for the Dems. That failed too, but I never considered taking my guns and joining a militia…tho that begs the question…are there any liberal militias?
    I blame both sides for dividing us, but I blame the R’s for being so much better at it, and so much more willing to do it. As TrustedMechanic said in another post, D’s are much more likely to vote with R’s than the reverse.
    The “Civil War” began over uncivil behavior. The behavior is certainly uncivil now.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Our very Founders said that it’s the DUTY of the people to remove the government, from time to time, and replace it with a new one. This one has, unarguably, grown too big, too powerful and too far from the scope and authority of the Cosntitution. One only has to actually read the document and the supporting legacy documents written by the Founders to understand this. Where’s the cartoon of the just-as-crazy left wingers who are hell-bent on taking everything from those evil, hateful wealthy people and flinging it at the poor to keep them sedated?

    Tea Party platform is “Let’s take the word United of the phrase United States”!

    We have a chance to remove the government every four years. This time we decided to keep the one we have. Get over it.

    And you might want to look up “perpetual union” in Constitutional law — it goes back to the Articles of Confederation and even earlier, and the Supreme Court has ruled that it is stated in the Constitution with the words “a more perfect union”. The founders did not set up a system with the intent that it be overthrown. Changed, yes, overthrown, no.

    Actually, I’m not so sure of that now. I heard on HLN this morning that the Republicans are going to vote on this idea:
    to work on the Deficit for three months; if that is still at a stalemate, then Congress doesn’t get paid!
    I hope that passes….

    Just for you, oh doubting King of Me.

    “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established, should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience [has] shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce [the people] under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.” —Thomas Jefferson: Declaration of Independence, 1776.

    Obama was outed as a communist by the communist Russian news outlet Pravda last year.

    Wow, absolutely on target. The teabaggers are dangerous. All we can do is to educate everyone about their plan to end the greatness of America.

    Impeach Obama? On what grounds? What has he done that is unconstitutional, that previous presidents (including W) have also done that did not warrant impeachment? Perhaps you should back up your insistence with some specific evidence. The usual right-wing hysterical blather is not really grounds for a trial of the president.

    The tea party’s original raison d’etre was to protest excessive taxation, bank bailouts and federal government overreach. Not something I necessarily agree with, but these were valid issues to confront. Now, it’s morphed into a sizable lunatic fringe bent on shutting down the federal government (as though THAT would solve anything), fighting science and personal freedoms (including healthcare and womens’ rights), and occasional flagrant racism.

    Thank you Ketira. A breath of hope is like a cool breeze on a hot day.
    Appreciatively,
