    Do You Really Think John Boehner Cares About America?

    I don't. I think he is out to fill his pockets with money and protect the special interest groups he supports. People like Boehner make me think we need a major change in American politics. Maybe we need to throw out both fine parties and start over. We need term limits and we need to ban all lobbyists. We need major changes in America.

    I do think John Boehner really cares about America.  His position in the House of Representatives is the toughest in the current Congress with the Democrats in charge of the Senate and trying to get agreements on the toughest issues our country faces today.  Some may not like him but he fights for what he believes in and today we need that more than ever if we are going to resolve the issues facing our country today and future projected problems.

      I think he's playing the "game," but he's a wolf in sheep's clothing. At the RNC he read the script and ignored the votes. Parliamentary requests were ignored. The political process is now officially a sham.

    As much as I abhor his politics, I do think he believes he has America's best interests at heart.  As much as he is a pain-in-the-ass to Obama in the short-run, when push-came-to-shove, he tried to do the right thing for America and compromise where he could; those further to the Right weren't of such a mind.

    Having said that, I also think those even further to the Right think they are doing what is best for America in accordance with their philosophy.  Unfortunately, their method ends up throwing-the-baby-out-with-the-bathwater.  They have a unique inability to learn from the past, for the principles they hold were the same principles followed by American gov't by-and-large, until the Great Depression; and they didn't work very well in addition to making life pretty miserable for individual Americans.  Most of the problems with their system of economics and government were hidden by the growth resulting from westward expansion.  Once that stopped, things just kept getting worse.

      You've got to be kidding! Did you see Boehner at the RNC? He ignored the votes and simply read the script. Voting and Roberts Rules of Order are dead in the political system. It's all a sham, and Boehner is part of the elite who are dismantling USA.

    And he is different from what politician? Why point out Boehner? Why not point to the President? Or any other Democrats? The problem is on both sides of the fence. This crap of pointing out one side over the other is exactly why were are in the toilet we are in.

      No we are in the toilet because of the political spin game and everyone going along like sheep to the slaughter. I really believe we need a new party that would be for America first and to hell with the rest of the world.

    Boehner is a puppet, just like Obama and Bush. They're looking out for themselves, certainly, but they're also working for the Globalists who might well want to do away with 6.5 Billion of us.

    They're also trying to push RFID chips for everyone. What better way to track you, my dear! Or to close your bank account if we don't like what you're doing.

    9/11 was an inside job, and possibly an outside job, too, but the poor Muslims likely didn't have anything to do with it. They worked for the CIA and were patsies in a holding pattern in the weeks and days leading up to 9/11. The FBI was told to leave them be, because the powers that be needed someone to blame for 9/11.

    Amazing how these guys had researched and "knew" who had done it within 30 minutes of the first airplane strike (L. Paul Bremer on national TV). And yet it took over 400 days for the "official" investigation to get started.

    Too bad all of the evidence at the crime scene was cleaned up within a few weeks, long before the investigation began. Such a thing would be called a "felony" in other crimes of murder.

    Too bad all of the military officers responsible for the failures on 9/11 were all given promotions instead of courts martial. I guess government incompetence runs deep when they're trying to hide their own complicity.

    What does Boehner have to do with this? He's just one of the elite gang doing his thing to help shred the Constitution for his bosses. And they're almost done, too!

    They (the Rockefellers, Rothschilds and their ilk) have been planning this for a century or more. The ball really started rolling in 1913 with the establishment of the Communistic central bank -- the very private, Federal Reserve "System." Don't believe it's private? Try taking video equipment onto their property. They are about as "Federal" as "Federal Express." And their money is a giant Ponzi scheme -- a debt pyramid that no one would ever be able to pay off while using only Fed dollars. We were debt slaves to the Rockefellers starting in 1913. Thank them for this mess.

    I may be a liberal, but that doesn't mean I think he doesn't care about America. I disagree with him on basically all points, but from what I've read, he deeply cares about America. He just has a different philosophy.

    He cares about his survival. 

    The problem is that he needs to deal with a group of little more than "Child Soldiers" for ALEC, The Kochs, and the rest of the "%1".

    The real question is who do you think in politics cares about America.
    Today is the result of congresses and presidents for the last one hundred years, and from what we see, none of them really cared about America.

    The country has stayed Red and Blue during that time, and if they care about America we would see purple throughout the country.

    I'm not even sure he cares about himself (This is just my worthless opinion, but I'm convinced he's a closet homosexual). Term limits won't solve anything because we'd just see different faces of the same types of scumbag puppets every year. Term limits ruined the presidency. I'd like to see legislators chosen by random lottery, like the draft. Then we'll see what our nation is really about and we'll wish we had focused more on education.
