    There is only one problem with most of the Government Conspiracy theories. . Do you really believe that those idiots running the Government are competent enough to run a successful conspiracy???

    If you have enough conspiracies going at the same time one might succeed.

    “Why do you assume anything you don’t understand is a government conspiracy.”

    If you substitute the word “government” for the word “liberal” then I think you capture the prevailing mood among some segments of the US populace right now.

    Ah yes… Welcome to life in the draconian dictatorship of Obamination.

    It is interesting how everyone talked about how Bush was destroying this country, but now no one is talking about the fact that Obama has done more damage to this country in four months than Bush did in eight years.

    Isn’t the liberal media a wonderful thing!

    Well bald, the only thing you need to understand about gummint is that it has three functions–national defence, law enforcement, infrastructure maintenance–not the other 1,997 functions it usurped/arrogated.

    I still cannot figure this out. Congressional approval ratings are about 15% positive. Then why is there a 95% RE-ELECTION rate?

    Answer me that!

    Leonard … Ben Franklin, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson … were all liberals. Political liberalism is the concept that rights are granted by a Constitution.

    GWB stood for undermining your personal freedoms so that the government could wiretap your personal conversations. GWB was for torture, which is a violation of the 6th amendment (not to mention human decency). GWB tried to take over the Louisiana State National Guard after hurricane Katrina, which is a direct attempt at nationalizing state rights, and stands in opposition to federalist principles outlined by our founding fathers. GWB also pushed No Child Left Behind through Congress, then left a $36 billion dollar deficit in federal funding for the program; not only did he saddle states with astronomical funding requirements (and that has far, far, far reaching implications beyond GWB’s 8 years and IS a factor in why many states are in funding crisis now), the educational measure was decidedly anti-federalist: the national government set spending requirements for state spending. In case you are in need of a history lesson (and you are), the biggest issue at the birth of our nation was the battle between the roles of state and federal government.

    So, to recap, revoking Constitutional rights, undermining Constitutional rights, and rewriting the principles of federalism. And I didn’t even touch on the foreign policy blunders that have and will continue to cripple this nation’s sovereignty and future.

    If you want to talk about undermining the principles of our government as outlined by our founding fathers, you need to do some homework. And you need to understand that while you may dislike Obama for many reasons (none of which you have really expanded on), he is attempting to run this country with deference to our core values.

    Right, Leonard … so, to sum up: empower the individual and get government out of the way of selfish interests. And because we are saints, we will all eat gumdrops and lollipops and never get a cavity.

    (BTW – why did you remove all your previous comments?)

    Anyway, back on topic … your vision of America’s principles is vastly distorted, and you seem to live in a world of idealistic fantasy. Your vision of “small government and low taxes” is antiquated, not historically accurate and does not fit the realities of the 21st century world. Which is more, they rely on altruism of the individual, which is great in theory, but fails in the face of individual greed. A government reliant on individual self-restraint and altruism is doomed to failure. Case in point: Marxism.

    and just to add, Leonard … our founding fathers were nothing if not political pragmatists. If you can look past all your nonsense “liberal conspiracy theories” (and we are back at the original ‘toon!), Obama is a political pragmatist at heart. Note that he has angered both the far left and far right.

    I looked up G. Soros. He’s campaigned against socialism all his life, supported democratic movements and individual rights from Poland’s Solidarity movement to Georgia’s recent anti-soviet Rose Revolution and is responsible for the fall of socialism in the former Soviet countries. What a monster!

    How many times do I have to say it? This isn’t the place for political diatribes. Talk about the cartoons, please, and save your political soap box for political forums. This is a cartoon forum.

    And, no, this cartoon has nothing to do with politics, so don’t try to use that as an excuse.

    It’s nice to see that “obnoxious” is a bi-partisan trait. Now that you’ve had this bit of bonding over your similarities, could you kindly toddle off and let me ponder how much I wish I’d had a talking horse when I was small, cute and apt to expect the worst?

    Reynard61 : “If you dislike “Teh Gummint” so much, why don’t you move to Somalia? ”

    If I dislike my government, instead of changing it or trying to show others why it’s wrong, I should jump ship? It’s chilling thought processes like these that cause our country so much trouble.

    Also I feel like I should chime in. No comic strip with the term “government conspiracy” is nonpolitical in nature. The cartoon seems to be satirical in nature describing, obviously, the very thing these comments are doing. Being ignorant in regards to politics, blaming others, etc. (The simply irony of not trusting the government by instead blindly trusting a conspiracy theory). However this is indeed political in nature. It’s not talking about politics themselves, but how a lot of people approach politics. Of course this cartoon is going to spark some discussion on this front. Wiley: “And, no, this cartoon has nothing to do with politics, so don’t try to use that as an excuse.” And Horton Hears a Who has nothing to do with abortion, but it still holds truths and analogies relative to the debate. Art can transcend the purpose that even the artist intended.

    At least for the moment the US is still a free country and I am still free to express my thoughts and opinions. To those of you who hate me for being willing to stand up for the truth and the foundations this country was built upon, well that is your right as well. It is interesting that soo many people out there seem to have bought into the riduculous report put out by the sham of a dept of homeland security that Obama has put together. If all you progressive thinking liberals are so sure you are right then why are you so threaten by people of opposite opinions that you would label them extremists and domestic terrorists? The truth is you know you are wrong and you are afraid of the day when you will loose your power and order will be restored. As to George Soros, he tried to buy the presidency when Kerry was running, he succeeded with Obama. Soros’s ultimate goal is to be emperor of the world, he already controls much of the United Nations, by owning the leaders of other countries, now he owns the leader of the US. He is well onhis way to succeeding in becoming emperor.

    jimeguess: The people you speak of each like their OWN representative (they helped elect him/her, after all), but disagree with Congress AS A WHOLE. Even if their representatives are of the majority party, the party might be “too involved with abortion and not concerned enough about the environment” in comparison to the priorities of the district and its representative.

    If Ted Kennedy (to pick a famous member of Congress at random) had to appear on ballots in every state, he’d have probably been kicked out of the Senate years ago.

    Similarly, people who complain about ‘kids these days” generally think their own children or grandchildren are wonderful.

    I don’t hate you, and I have no problem with you expressing your opinion; but you seem to expect us to take your opinions (which sound, to me at least, suspiciously like Republican talking points) as God-given *fact* without anything to back them up. (i.e. Unbiased news sources or historical citations – and, no, Faux News *doesn’t* count!) As the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan observed: “You are entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts.” Of course, he was a flaming Liberal, so nothing he ever said matters anyway…
