      For you, the real problem with the AMERICAN voter is that neither he nor she votes the way you want them to.....

        Actually no.   What I believe is wrong in America though , isn't the human element of the candidates that we align with or against though  it's  actually the human element of the voter that is more telling .   What yours or what my ideology is , IS more important .   

        I have said for awhile that the difference between  conservative and liberal ideology is  that  one is about the small non intrusive governments  and thus more liberty  and the nanny state desires of liberal ideology  AND   that is the difference between you and I .

        Let's face  it .  Free stuff and the promise thereof , IS the definition of  liberal ideology .

          Unfortunately, Liberalism as it is defined today is really Socialist, even Leftist in ideology.   Yes, I am a Liberal but in the vein of Kennedy.  I am NOT a Liberal in terms of wanting a nanny state.  Obama has gone WAY TOO FAR in terms of social programs.  I believe in a strict meritocracy-the percent that one inputs, should be the percentage of his/her output, no more no less.

          I strongly contend that the proliferation of social programs since the 1960s has seriously impaired the middle class w/ the increase of taxes.  Social programs i.e. welfare has only made American worse & it created a sense of entitlement w/generational welfare.  Also the open enrollment regarding colleges which created an increase of those who shouldn't have been admitted to college in the first place-decreased the value of a college education & created more college graduates than there are jobs.   When colleges had more strict quotas & no open enrollment, the quality of college education was superior & when students graduates, there were commensurate jobs.  Now, I have ranted & digressed simultaneously.

          Extreme Liberalism(let's call it what it is) created a chaotic fiasco for America.   As my late father indicated, when people receive something w/o earning it, they fail to appreciate it & expect it.  They also lose their incentive to do better.   Most social programs, including welfare, should be reduced 85%.  Anyone who is able bodied should be made to work.  Colleges should have a strict admission program-only those w/As & Bs should be admitted.   College isn't for everyone-stop w/the open admissions.   No Obama "care", health care was great before this "advent" & implementation.   

          If social programs were reduced, there would be a more solid middle class.  If one wants something, WORK for it.  Simple isn't it.   Stop whining about what one doesn't have.  Make your opportunity.  Social programs in many cases only creates entitlements which leads to laziness & a poor work ethic.

        Yea I paid for my own phone. I felt like obama and the telecom industry was too big to fail any more than they already have.

    … didn't you hear?
    She is in touch with aliens who have lots of gold. They brought it from a golden moon orbiting Neptune. They have a base beneath the White House where they have lived since the slaves built it. Unfortunately, they are behind the New World Order Illuminati Globalists. 
    So, Hillary shouldn't touch their filthy gold.

    Go home, you aliens!
    Or go take over some other planet!

    G.M Williams , all good points ,you are right about this , AND  The power of the purse is the greatest power the American voter STILL hold in their, our  hands , All we have to do  is say no !    A " ground swell" , "grass roots movements " however we want to announce our intention is  the only  thing to do,  at this point .   This voting power  is far closer to home too than we seem to be wiling to admit   !    Go to the local school board budget meetings for one , THAT is where most of your immediate tax dollars go .  Most federal taxation is  incremental  , gasoline , highways , income ,etc.

    How long does anyone think it would take IF the American voter immersed him[her] self locally ,in just collectively saying no at the polls  , BEFORE the feds also took that message to heart too?   The biggest single  cause of over taxation and under representation  by  ALL our government is STILL voter apathy . The American voter speaks out here in forums only half heartedly , the other half of the conversation has to happen  at the booth !
