    No surprise there! But what's shocking is how much the democrats favor the gov't in every question in the poll! Democrats are the new socialists! They long for more gov't in every aspect of life. They want oppression! They want a strong central authority to care for their needs and make their important decisions for them. This is the evil we must oppose and defeat!

        It's much better.
        And despite the attempt to throw America under the bus to make the president fail,

        Some legislation has gotten through....and we will be the better for it.

        And we'll remember who it was that didn't care if we lived or died.

                Oh please...a threat???

                Have you never heard that phrase?

                I'll say it in adult English then: The t-pers will be thrown out on their big overweight keesters!

                Big mouths, big butts, little in the way of integrity.

                  Yes, I have heard that line. Right before a guy was dropped from the Brooklyn bridge. I'm not sure where you get your information but the only people going will be those in the Obama administration. But its your world.

    The government is a threat, but it's both sides of the aisle. Anyone that tells you differently is selling something.

        You must be joking. They're tag teaming us. The Republicans want to take away our personal freedoms and the Democrats would bury us in taxes. We're destined to remain enslaved as long as people keep buying into the idea that either party cares about the average American.

        We could easily give a hand to those that need assistance, balance our budget and lower taxes if we would simply get the corporations out of our pockets and force them to stop making the laws of this land. Laws are enacted and wars are fought solely for their benefit. Not yours, or mine.

        And as long as we allow them to manipulate us into fighting each other  we won't be able to effect a positive change.
