Do you believe the government elected is abusing their postitions/power?
This is the most liberal, corrupt, self-center, egotistical and self serving adminsitration to be DC in quite some time. The recent healthcare debacle is a good point. The American people overwhelmingly said they did not want this new healthcare but the adminsitration, under King Obama, Queen Pelosi and Court-Jester Reid rammed this through congress and down our throats. They will pay for this in November when the American people remember this and vote a whole bunch of Dumbocrats out of office. Our constitutional freedoms are being swept down the drain by this adminsitration and we the American people better do something about it before we find ourselves living in a dictatorship.
Definitely. The Republicans did it under Bush, and the Democrats have magnified this abuse ten-fold.
By publishing the health care plan and the Cap and Trade plan mere hours before forcing a vote instead of publishing it many days beforehand and letting the citizens read the bills is abuse of power. Pelosi literally said, "We need to pass the bill so you can learn what's in it."
We're being lied to every day for political gain under the guise of "spin." All politicians do it, but Democrats are masters.
"The healthcare plan will SAVE money."
"Cap and trade will save and create jobs."
"The stimulus bill created or saved tens of thousands of jobs."
These are just 3 examples of so very many lies. Lying to the people knowing that they will eventually just go along if the lie is told enough times is clearly abuse of power.

Do you believe that the nuisance known as Obamacare will finally be repealed? Why? Why not?I believe that the government SHOULD NOT be in private affairs such as health care. I believe that health care is the sole responsibility of the individual. If individuals want health care,...
