Republicans Snag Another Senate Seat in Louisiana Run-Off Poll
Elections
164

Bill CassidyBoo-hoo, Obama’s Democrats have lost another seat in the Senate.

As of December 7th, it was announced that Republican Bill Cassidy had defeated Democrat Mary Landrieu in a runoff poll in Louisiana a full month after the midterm elections.

Cassidy’s win on Saturday handed the Republicans their 54th seat in the 100-member Senate, nine more than before the November 9 poll.

That enabled the conservatives to reclaim Congress’ upper chamber and left President Obama facing Republican majorities in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Cassidy, a medical doctor, took about 56 percent of Saturday’s ballot, about 13 percent ahead of Landrieu, according to tallies. Analysts pointed to a stronger turnout by “whiter, older” voters in Louisiana.

Landrieu’s loss leaves Obama’s Democrats without a single Senate seat in America’s Southern states. The three-term incumbent, who chaired the Senate’s Energy Committee, had lobbied for the long-delayed and controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which Obama opposed.

    Anything that swings the influence of our elected lice in the direction of the constitution and re-establishment of the Rule of Law, Equitable Law enforcement and fiscal responsibility along with deportation of all illegals who cannot prove their permission to be here by VALID means and a legitimate Green Card. As it is, we are inundated with 50% of all the world’s immigrants and many of them are inimical to us as cartel members or Muslim Jihadists looking to create havoc here and recruit more morons for their murderous agendas. Every democrat we see removed from office is a blow for individual liberty and a strike against New World Order Statism and the utter destruction of our constitutional Republic. god bless America, though it was impolitic on an increasing basis to so state; until the MID TERM RESULT! Now to defund the United Nations and throw it off our soil as the ENEMY WITHIN IT MOST CERTAINLY HAS BECOME FOR THE ACVERAGE AMERICAN CITIZEN!

    • KingDon

      Okay, okay, they now are the majority. Now let’s see if they do their duty and represent their constituents or go off and do their own thing like they’ve done in the past.

      • Leo Sebastian

        They have done good job in 1994 don’t they ? But , they deal with Clinton ..Now it’s bloody anti american marxists .

        • KingDon

          They’ve become nothing but a bunch of Rinos since then. If they don’t get into lock-step and commit themselves to undoing the current mess, nothing positive will come out of this. The socialist/democrats lock arms and persist until they eventually win – our boys don’t seem capable of doing this. they’ll go off in six different directions and squander their majority power just as they have in the past.

          • patriot 86

            Maybe but I don’t think so this time ‘ there is such a loathing for obama I think it will unite them ‘shit I bet a lot of dems will get on board once they take control just to get some payback on the liar and chiefs bully tactics in pushing through obumblercare.Many dems admit off the record they were threatened that if they did’nt vote for it their careers were over.SOUNDS LIKE BATHHOUSE BARRY.

        • patriot 86

          Yup you can bet the liar in chief is gonna veto everything they bring to the table to be a f*****g prick his last two years.

      • Nikita63

        I am as dubious as you as to the reality of what they will do. Let’s face it: POLITICIANS ARE DISHONORABLE BY NATURE SINCE IT IS A LONG TERM BROKEN SYSTEM OF PRIVILEGE AND SPECIAL INTEREST INFLUENCE THAT RULES AMERICA; NOT THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES WITHOUT CONSCIENCE OR MORALS WHOSE MAIN CONCERNS ARE THEIR OWN SELF-AGGRANDIZEMENT AND THE EXPANSION OF PERSONAL AUTHORITY AND PARTY AGENDAS. CONSTITUENTS COUNT FOR NOTHING: ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS: even more so if they happen to be elderly and disabled or veterans or all of the above. The worst thing you can be is an elderly FEMALE veteran and disabled and Native born citizen. We need term limits and a short ceiling pro rated benefit packages for those who “SERVE,” at the Federal, level and the same at all other levels of GOVERNMENT, and, WE NEED DESPERATELY, TO LEARN TO HOLD THESE CHARALATANS AND THIEVING PARASITES BOTH RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE: ALWAYS! If we had had the temerity to do so these past 50 years or so, we would NOT be where we are now. For the fact that we are; we have no one to blame , BUT OURSELVES!

        • KingDon

          Members of the old line Mafia are more honorable than the so called representatives that we keep sending to DC. Once they cross the beltway into DC, they can’t even remember what states they came from. All they do is pad their pockets while in office and then become lobbyist when, if ever, they leave office. The worst thing is that whenever anyone of real substance tries to run for office, they get blocked by their own party unless that individual falls into line with the party platform – and the platform is not set up to protect the best interest of our country or ours.

          • Nikita63

            We are $18 trillion in debt but congress allows this wretch to fund arming of Islamic enemies World wide including here in THIS country from the look of it and still, we send billions in foreign aid to others equally inimical to us. Meanwhile, our military is deteriorating morale-wise and diminishing in size and capability by Government design. Their families are on food stamps, their pay and benefits are being cut, and the administration is pink slipping many of them and asking illegals to join in their places so the emperor may have a personally loyal armed force rather than one sworn to defend and uphold the constitution against all enemies; foreign and domestic, including the host of them : IN WASHINGTON. No pro-American citizen or constitutional candidate is allowed to succeed in elective endeavors if it can be prevented but, so rotten is the system that even those whose intent is honorable are soon corrupted by the elective reality of absolute power corrupting absolutely. eventually, I believe it will result in a violent confrontation and if so, it will come about because it is what is WANTED by those we elected to protect and preserve all we have held dear from the inception of this country as a free and independent nation and the aim of these New World Order statist scum is to end that status and sovereignty: PERMANENTLY. We CANNOT let it happen if there is ever to be a meaningful legacy or future for our progeny. And you are right that the platform is detrimentally designed to detract from the best interest of the country and her citizens!

          • KingDon

            Prior to the recent election, all the little Rinos promised to end the
            amnesty madness. Well These Republican leaders in the House want to pass
            a $1.1 trillion spending bill this week that funds the president’s
            unlawful executive amnesty:
            John Boehner (R-OH), Speaker of the House
            Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Majority Leader
            Steve Scalise (R-LA), Majority Whip
            Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Chief Deputy Whip
            Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Conference Chairwoman
            Greg Walden (R-OR), NRCC Chairman
            Luke Messer (R-IN), Policy Committee Chairman
            Hal Rogers (R-KY), Appropriations Committee Chairman
            Pete Sessions (R-TX), Rules Committee Chairman
            Bill Flores (R-TX), Republican Study Committee Chairman

            But
            then, these jokers don’t have to worry about earning enough income to
            take care of their families – most of the rest of us do.

          • Nikita63

            I see that like me, you follow the voting records of those we elect to represent us who then represent nothing but their own party agendas and personal interests. It is pretty much as I assumed it would be by those we mutually refer to as RINOS. That the conservative faction in the larger party has grown substantially since the mid terms will also make it harder for these bums to do what they want and they will have to deal with it but, not until the new congress is seated. Let us hope we can survive the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune bound to come from them until them. It will be no walk in the park for eafter that; at least , I sure as the devil hope not but then , as always, all we , the people, can do is wait and see!

      • patriot 86

        Agreed ‘ they will be under scrutiny but just imagine how bad it would be and get if the dems had kept the senate and dirty harry the commie would still be leader .

  • Jim McCormack

    NOT TRUE- Sen .Bill Nelson D .Still Florida Senator.Also Bill Warner D.West Va Senator.

    • Greg Day

      REALLY!??!! LOL
      Then they need to SHOW us something, not ‘business as usual’ groupie…

      • CA Loser

        I warned all that the plague had spread from CA and was headed your way. If we cannot take out Frankenfeinstein, Pelosi, Boxer and several other crooked politicians from CA, the ship will sink. The liberal plague can be stopped, must be stopped by whatever means needed up to and including termination. Understand that not all of us in CA are infected, we fight for our lives everyday, but these A holes just keep giving to illegals and stepping on the middle class. The highest poverty rate, high unemployment, high numbers of illegals, highest taxes, we used to be the 3rd largest economy in the world but now we are 7th according to Guv Brown (A known liar) but really we are 10th. How can you be the 10th largest economy in the world and be the leader in poverty among the states? Because liberals own and operate the state. They must be removed from power and everyone who sides with them needs to be terminated. Now these A holes are in the bay area looting because cops killed a criminal all the way on the other side of this country. They need to meet the same fate. Stand strong and don’t let the republicans back down. We need to pressure them to make sure they understand what we demand of them. Have a nice evening

        • patriot 86

          I feel for you ‘ can’t quite say i’m in the same boat as you cuz I’m from minnesota and none of our elected officials no matter how bad they may be can hold a candle to those first three you mentioned .There is a special place in hell for complete imbeciles like PELOSI and she should have been put behind bars years ago and had the door welded shut.

      • patriot 86

        Give them time for pete’s sake ‘ obama has had 6 years of f*****g us over ‘give them at least his last two before you throw in the towel.

        • Greg Day

          I’m SURELY not waving the ‘white’ flag of surrender my friend, but I need to see ACTION in lieu of excuses & the continued “mollycoddling” to the leftist progressives and komrad ovomitbitch!11

          • patriot 86

            YEAH HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR ‘I WAN’T TO SEE SOME ACTION TOO AND SOON .

  • Msgtdubb

    Unless the GOP, does something besides kiss democrat A##, they won’t hold the majority very long. We have some muscle and leverage, now, USE IT!

    • Frank Delano

      They don’t have to kiss the democrats ass any more .The Dems will wind up kissing theirs

      • KingDon

        You might want to remind John Boehner of this fact.

      • Phyllis

        Not according to Pelosi, she thinks she is still running the show but Harry Reid has gotten very quiet. And Obama is smirking all over the place and using all kinds of things to divert the voters. I don’t think the republicans will fold but a good chance that Boehner will.

        • patriot 86

          We will see soon ‘Pelosi is a non issue ‘this bitch is so far out there a space shuttle would have trouble finding her .

      • Rx7pj

        What???

        • patriot 86

          Can’t you understand english ‘ he said the dems better get their pucker on .

          • Rx7pj

            You mean Americas should because they are about to get fu**ed by the republicans again.

          • patriot 86

            Wrong again moron ; let me guess you voted for barry twice ‘well stupid is as stupid does.

          • Rx7pj

            No, I’m not.

      • patriot 86

        Let’s hope so friend ‘ It’s time to undo all the shit obumbler has done to america and make her great once again.

    • patriot 86

      Exactly ‘ now is the time to push and keep pushing this asshole in the oval office till he has to come to the table and compromise ‘ he no longer has the luxury of just sitting back and blaming the house for shit ‘If he plays the little crybaby with his veto’s he will fuck the democratic party in the next election and ironically I really don’t think he gives a shit ‘ I think his ego is so huge he actually thinks he can do whatever he wants no matter who holds both houses.

  • Sheldon Lawrence

    I’m not holding my breath waiting for the right thing to be done by our so-called representatives in the republican party

    • Frank Delano

      Go to sleep Liberal

      • Sheldon Lawrence

        Listen to rush, savage, levin, beck and others to learn what is going on. Educate yourself before you label

      • patriot 86

        How did you get that he is a liberal from his post.All he said was the dems are gonna be doing the ass kissing.

  • Robert Pekarik

    Now we’ll see again how democrats operate. They’ll never get it through their heads that their policies and lies have put America in the situation we are in right now. They are the party of corruption, deceit and bankruptcy. They have no concern for our children’s or their children’s future. Their incompetence is their legacy.

    • Rx7pj

      You’re insane.
      If you think electing republicans will all of a sudden make everything better, thing again.

      • jdelcjr

        Better then what? They probably can’t FIX the mess this administration has made in 6 years, but they certainly can’t make it worse, which is what would happen if the liberals kept control. So yes, that IS better, but I think they will make things “better” by my standards.

        • patriot 86

          You got that right friend ‘ no way could they do any worse.The obama administration is the blueprint on how to completely wreck a country and it’s economy.

        • Rx7pj

          No its taken Obama 6 years to try to repair the damage done by the Bush administration, without the help of the incompetent republicans. I just pray putting them back in power won’t cause more of the same damage Bush caused.

          • jdelcjr

            I responded to your own words which were “If you think electing republicans will all of a sudden make everything better, think again”. So by your own words, you think things are now worse, and I agree with you that they are. The direction we want our Country to go, is relative to the direction each of us think it should go. It seems obvious that you and far too many others approve of what Obama has done to our Country. The Nov. 4 elections shows most Americans do not. The recent Louisiana runoff is proof there is no remorse. Now I and all Conservatives hope reparations can and will be made.

          • Rx7pj

            Wake up, I never said or implied things are worse now, as a matter of fact my comments show I think things are better now in spite of the republican obstructionists.
            The Nov 4th elections showed what about 25% of the American voters think,NOT the majority.
            Why don’t you tell us just what the republicans are going to do to make things better???? When are they going to stop obstructing progress??? How about when are they going to approve the federal judgeship’s they are refusing to act on???? Or other political appointees??? How about approving the infrastructure bills Obama has proposed??? Or the immigration reform passed by the senate that Boehner refuses to even vote on????
            Ya as I said WAKE UP

        • Rx7pj

          So you want to go back to the policies that got us into the recession huh??? Boy that sounds intelligent
          WAKE UP

          • jdelcjr

            exactly what past policy by what President put us into a recession, and how did Obama end it? The middle class is smaller and the money went to the top 1% since the poor are poorer. I’ve lived through many recessions. Some were under Democratic Presidents, some under Republican. We had one of the worse recessions I can recall under Carter, which ended under Reagan. The economy and the stock market always had its cycles. When its down, the President gets blamed. When its up, the President gets credit. Im not so sure the President deserves either most of the time. 30% of the voters voted in November. The mid terms usually have a low voter turnout. That’s not out of the ordinary. 2014 was lower then normal, which analysts contribute to the possibility that many liberals did not vote because they did not want to support their candidate. As important as this election was, and all the publicity and money spent on it, I think their no-show was just as much a part of a mandate as the Republican sweep.The Dems lost nearly every seat, including Governors. Where were the Liberal supporters? As for your comment about Republicans being “obstructionists”, I applaud them for obstructing injustice. Go back to sleep. I read many of your other posts and have no desire to continue a discussion with the likes of you.

          • Rx7pj

            Lets start with 2 unfunded illegal wars, then talk about the unfunded tax cuts for the rich, or how about the medicare part D mess. Ya the middle class is smaller and poorer thanks to policies like the tax breaks for millionaires and NONE for the middle class. But the republicans don’t believe in tax breaks for the middle class anyway.
            This recession is the worst since the great depression of 29.Check the facts. And I never said Obama got us out of it, we are still suffering the effects thanks to the republican resistance. But I guess, from what you said, that’s what you want them to do, stop any progress getting us out the the recession.
            I know you don’t’ like talking to people like me because you can’t stand the truth.
            By the way pretending the at the 25% of the eligible voters voted for the republicans is NOT a mandate or the majority. It’s time for you to wake up.

      • Robert Pekarik

        Not suddenly. It will take at least 25 years, maybe longer, to undo the damage that the democratic party and the most incompetent and corrupt president to ever sit in the highest office has done to our nation. The entire democratic party is no longer based on American ideals and honesty. They are corrupt to the core and will sell anyone out, including you and your family, to shove their INSANE ideology down the throats of we the people. The only problem with republicans is that they are to afraid to stand up to this bigot and his race baiting administration. By their silence and pathetic responses they are enabling Obama to continue to destroy America.

        • Rx7pj

          What a load of complete horsesh**.

          • Robert Pekarik

            Democrats – the party that does anything it can to America so it can stay in power. It’s only a matter of time until people realize that the only thing that a democrat cares about is another democrat. It took six short years for the first black president to set back race relations to the civil war era. America gave him a chance because they felt he had the countries best interests in mind and would provide hope and change for a better nation. The true horsesh** comes from people like you that actually think this president, his administration and the corrupt democratic party care about all Americans. The true horsesh** is people like you believing every lie that comes from the mouths of these corrupt politicians who swore to uphold the laws of our nation but instead change the law whenever it suits their horsesh** agenda. You are and will always be just another led around by the nose lemming who wouldn’t know the truth or a fact if it bit you in your horsesh** ass. You are complicit in the attempted destruction and fundamental transformation of America and your exposed. You are not an American, you are an anarchist sympathizer. You are part of the problem.

          • Rx7pj

            Again what a load of horsesh**. The only thing a democrat thinks about is another democrat???? Really the exact thing is true about republicans, WAKE UP already. Obama has done NOTHING to set back race relations where do you come up with that crap??? You believe the hosrsesh** coming from the mouths of corrupt politicians, your dialog is proof of that. Bush wrote a LOT more executive orders then Obama has, why doesn’t that bother you???? Especially if you’re not biased???

            You are the one being led around by your nose and you don’t even realize it, mores the pity.

            I am an American, time for you to act like one Get a life

          • Robert Pekarik

            Blah, blah, blah. The same old lies, the same old blather, the same old ignorance. This president has inserted himself in cases where he can twist the truth and make everything racial. Why? He has no respect for the law? He thinks he can make better decisions then anyone else in the world? He is in a position where he is completely over his head and his ego is to big for him to admit that he can’t handle the job? He’s mad because the majority of Americans have uncovered his incompetence and we don’t trust anything he does or says anymore? You don’t have to be biased like you are to admit that this president and his administration is the worst group of so called leaders that America has ever experienced. The democratic party is and until proven differently will always be corrupt to the core. No spin that you can invent will ever change the truth and the facts, something that you and your ilk will never be able to admit because you have agreed to change America into a country of haters of truth and facts. You are not a true American, you are a fundamental transformation anarchist.

          • Rx7pj

            You sure are in love with your right winged horsesh**.
            There is no way to make sense with someone as deluded as you are.
            Enjoy your fantasy.

          • Robert Pekarik

            You can call standing up for America and its Constitution and Trust In God anything you want. Delusion belongs to the delusional which you prove you are with every post you make. You refuse to look at reality and the course that the far left has taken this country. Once all true Americans wake up and see the damage that the left has done to our nation my fantasy would be that all of the anti-americans move to Canada or Mexico or China or Russia. Places where you can spew your anti-american rhetoric and maybe even get a medal. Enjoy your transformation.

          • Rx7pj

            I am a true American, you’re so blinded by your hate you can’t see any thing but hate , go away.

          • Robert Pekarik

            This is the exact reason why you will never be taken seriously and your bias and refusal to really look at what is going on in America shows through every time you post. The typical liberal/progressive response to anything that you have no answer or fact to back anything up, resorts to name calling and your calling everything hate that you don’t agree with. You are so blinded by your ignorance of what is really happening in this country and your blind allegiance to liberalism that you can’t think for yourself. Hate is allowing this nation to turn against its founding principles and you Rx7pj are a true believer in the fundamental transformation of America. You are the one that needs to go away, far, far away.

          • Rx7pj

            Garbage

          • Rx7pj

            Yes you are, unfortunately you’ll probably stick around spreading your hate and lies.

          • Robert Pekarik

            There you go again. You hate conservatives, you hate common sense, you hate truth, you hate anything that you don’t agree with. Look in the dictionary under Rx7pj and you’ll find the definition of hate. Look in the mirror if you can because you are the spreader of hate and bigotry.

          • Rx7pj

            Right wingers like you absolutely hate the truth and have absolutely zero common sense. As witnessed by your coversation.
            By the way I was responding to your garbage, which is totally actually hate and bigotry.
            The only thing I really hate is the lies spread by morons like you.

          • Robert Pekarik

            In your easily pliable mind liberal/progressive find fertile soil to sew racism, hatred and discontent. True Americans can see what these haters of America have done to our nation over the past years. Infiltrating our schools to teach revisionist history, celebrate abortions of the weakest among us kind as some kind of human triumph for selfish choice motives, point fingers at everyone but yourselves for the positions you have put yourselves because of your entitlement philosophy, attack the CIA for protecting us after 9/11 14 years after it happened for political purposes only, go after law enforcement because people that break the law shouldn’t be harassed and left alone to do whatever they want. Just a small example of your fundamental transformation of America. Pack your bags, because We The People are tired of your and your liberal/progressive haters of America destroying our country. Your ideology is not welcome nor needed in America and my suggestion to you is to find a country where the people have no clue what is going on and love it. It’s not here in America, not now nor in the future. You’re ideas and direction for our country have failed miserably and We The People will bring America back. Without your help or any other anarchist and hater.

          • Rx7pj

            I’ve got a very good handle on who and what we the people are and you ain’t it.
            All you have is your hatred of the president and your ignorant rhetoric which you get from the right winged punits who you follow like good little sheeple.
            The only thing threatening to destroy this great country is idiots like you.
            get a life.

          • Robert Pekarik

            You just won’t face the facts that the American people are done with the direction you and your kind are taking this country. George Patton said, “All real Americans love the sting of battle”. That’s why you leftist/progressive cowards have no stomach for a fight, just excuse making and finger pointing and crying about how everything is unfair and it’s always someone else’s fault. That’s why real Americans are standing up and ridding the government of liberal/progressives before you give our country to the UN or any other nation that you’ll allow to come in and tell us how to run America. You have underestimated the will of We The People, we will save this nation in spite of people that hate our country like you.

          • Rx7pj

            I don’t’ have a kind,what ever that was supposed to mean. Show me the FACTS that the American people are “done with the direction” anyone is “taking them”. Your quote from Patton applies just as much to republicans or in your case right winged fanatics. They have no stomach for a fight, just make excuses and point fingers, The only difference is you are ;pointing fingers at Obama saying EVERYTHING he does is somehow bad for this country or the people. As I said before you have NO idea what a real American is, your right winged delusion is NOT it.
            By the way nobody is trying to give our country to the UN, where so you get this crap???
            Your past statement that I hate this country is total horsesh** ad just shows YOUR own hatred. GROW UP

          • Robert Pekarik

            November 2014 was just the start. I can understand your fear that you will no longer get free stuff without working for it but maybe you can get an early start and practice getting out of bed before noon. Check out the other posts everyone knows that you could care less about the direction this country is being taken by far left liberals and progressives. You are all poor losers and you and your liberal kind would sooner destroy America than give up your insane ideology.

          • Rx7pj

            I don’t’ get any “free stuff” as you put it, you simple minded moron. Your idea of what direction this country is being taken is garbage, it’s all a big delusion in your little minds, nothing more. No political party is trying to destroy this country,I have no idea why you morons keep saying that. Maybe it’s just your overwhelming paranoia . By the way nothing is as insane as the right winged ideology that you seam to enjoy.

          • Robert Pekarik

            As usual blind obedience to government control of everything in our lives. Far left idiotology has perverted you beyond help!

            What the hell are you talking about?? Government control?? CRAP You suffer from right winged control probably from listening to idiots like Limbaugh and Hannity.
            There is NO far left idiotology as you put it. Your delusions are getting the best of you.

          • Robert Pekarik

            What country are you living in? The only thing I can figure is that you’ve had a lobotomy and your TV is stuck on MSNBC. Who is doing your thinking for you – because you obviously can’t think for yourself and need the liberals and progressives to form your opinions. Have you ever heard of the Constitution of the United States of America? You’re left wing buddies are hell bent on transforming it.

          • Rx7pj

            What a load of horsesh*& .
            I live in America, where are you from????
            I hardly ever watch MSNBC but I’ll bet your ass is clued to fix news given the ridiculous rhetoric you spew.
            And yes I know what our Constitution says abd the “left” as you put it, is NOT trying to transform it. Where do you morons get these delusions????

          • Robert Pekarik

            Pathetic far left hypocrite!!!!! No wonder you don’t know what is really going on in America, if you aren’t watching MSNBC are you attending communist meetings held in your home?

          • Robert Pekarik

            Oh by the way Louis Farrakan is looking for supporters of hate just like you. I’m sure if you contact Al Sharpton you can all get together for a bash America meeting.

          • Rx7pj

            I don’t much care for either if those people but your statement just verifys your bigotry. You hate them also, WHY is that??? Could it be because they are black??? Like the president? ??

          • Robert Pekarik

            There you go again bringing race into the discussion. I never mentioned race and it doesn’t belong in this discussion. I look at the person and what they stand for and what they do. You don’t much care for these race baiters but your posts seem to agree with their philosophy and ideology. Proof = Bringing up race, accusing everyone of hating, not having any facts to back up any of your slurs. I’m thinking that you might be learning something positive on this site or you wouldn’t be putting up with EVERYONE bashing your liberal/progressive thinking. Take notes and go over them every day and night you may turn into a patriot yet.

          • Rx7pj

            I Love it. Just because you don’t come out and be truthful about your bigotry does NOT mean you are not. All anyone has to do is read some of your posts to know how bigoted you truly are.
            You speak of facts yet never offer any to even try to prove your idiotic accusations.
            It is not possible to learn anything from you since truth, facts and common sense are totally unknown to you.
            By the way I am a patriot. YOUR assumption that only you right wingers are patriots just shows how ignorant you truly are. Why don’t you take notes??? You really need to. But I’m sure you won’t because you hate the truth.

          • Robert Pekarik

            I challenge anyone that posts here to agree with you and say that I am bigoted. You are the one who accused anyone who disagrees with you of bigotry and racism. I challenge you to question me on any of the statements I have made and I will provide you with all the facts you want. It won’t matter to you because you have yet to state anything that is true. Show me the facts that this president didn’t ruin the entire health care system. Show me the facts that this president hasn’t lied to us about Obamacare, the IRS targeting conservative groups (not one smidgen of corruption was how he put it), show me the facts that the president and his Department of Justice didn’t coverup selling guns to drug lords in Mexico, let me know what happened to Sgt. Bergdahl since the president traded him for 5 known terrorists after he went AWOL while on duty, how about telling me the facts about Miriam Carey the Connecticut woman shot 5 times by the the presidents Capitol Police on October 3, 2013 with her 14 month old daughter in the car and the Department of Justice has been silent. She refused to back her Infiniti at a checkpoint and instead made a U turn and the capitol police “panicked” and “completely mishandled” a simple traffic stop. Instead the chased her down and killed her. Why hasn’t the president said anything about this? He sure has plenty to say about Ferguson and Staten Island. I could go on but I’m just wasting my time with a pin head. I’ll await a response on each one of the 5 accusations I’ve made. But I won’t hold my breath.

          • Rx7pj

            Show me some facts that Obama did ruin the health care system??? There is NONE, jut your deluded opinion.NOT facts. Or show any facts for any of your accusations. All you are doing is stating opinions NOT facts there has been nothing proven to substantiate any of your claims. Just spewing out your right winged rhetoric is NOT proof or factual. For example what are the facts of the so called targeting by the IRS??? Fact is the IRS group charged with this were actually doing their job which is to evaluate and determinate if groups (political in this case) should get tax exempt status. They investigated groups from both parties and the ONLY one that lost their status was a liberal group. Show me the facts supporting your accusation that the president covered up the selling of guns to Mexican drug lords. There are NONE. Where are the facts the Bergdahl went AWOL. There hasn’t’ even been a trial for him yet and you are making statements like he’s already convicted.Just like the rest of your accusations.
            Your right you are wasting your time because all your infantile rhetoric is based on hate of the president NOTHING more. Your are not dealing with one or your immature Obama hating buddies. I believe in the truth and FACTS, something you are totally unfamiliar with.
            Where is your proof that the president hates America and is planning its demise??? That’ why I called you’ rightfully, bigoted because that’s where that kind of garbage talk comes from.
            So I say for the last time prove your accusations or shut up. Don’t ask me to disprove and of your crap.

          • Robert Pekarik

            No facts from you as expected so I’ll take on one of the subjects at a time in order for your puny mind and brainwashed thinking to absorb. Obamacare: Forbes 6/18/14 – 3,137 County Analysis -Increased 2014 Individual-Market Premiums by Average of 49%. Last November, our team at the Manhattan Institute published a study indicating that Obamacare had increased the underly cost of individually-purchased health insurance in the average State by 41% in 2014, relative to 2013. We’ve now redone the study on a county-by-county basis, complete with a new interactive map. Among men the winner was Buchanan County, Missouri, about 45 miles North of Kansas City: 271% increase in Obamacare costs. The winner for women Goodhue County, Missouri, about an hour southwest of Minneapolis: 200%. Overall Nevada, North Carolina, Minnesota and Arkansas have experienced the highest increases in Obamacare costs.
            If the poles are any guide, however, most voters haven’t benefitted from the law. Remember that President Obama often promised that his plan would “lower premiums by up to $2500 for a typical family per year…by the end of my first term as President of the United States”

          • Rx7pj

            The facts are debatable if you read the entire artifice. First not everyone experienced an increase in premiums as you believe. Second rate have been going up at a rate much higher then inflation for years. I’m sure your did as mine did, long before the ACA. You missed the real winners, “The best-faring county for both men and women was St. Lawrence County in northern New York, with premium decreases of 70 percent in 2014 relative to 2013. The New York City metropolitan area—the five boroughs, Long Island, and Westchester County—are the clear winners under Obamacare, with decreases in the 63 to 64 percent range.”

            Why do you right winged morons always assume everyone except you is on entitlements???? Why does a mans skin color make you assume he’s lying?? Could it have something to do with your bigotry and hate??? The only people here that are blaming EVERYTHING on Obama is YOU , why is that???
            The health care system was NOT ruined by Obama it was is ruin unless you’re blind. We have the most expensive and least effective health care systems on the planet. By any measure. This has nothing to do with Obama legacy only what you are wishing for. By the way why do you feel 50 million uninsured is acceptable? Why does the fact that millions were going bankrupt or dying because they could not afford health care ring as OK with you??
            You’re the joke,wake up.

          • Robert Pekarik

            There you go again with your race arguments which have nothing at all to do with competence, honesty, integrity and the truth. Why is it that you left wing morons continually absolve yourselves of any blame on the death culture that you have been primarily responsible for in this nation? The health care system has been ruined. Again 93% of the population were okay with their health care plans until the president and his corrupt administration interjected themselves into something they had no idea about. Forcing everyone to pay for things they don’t need. My wife and I will never need birth control, we do not believe in abortion , like you left wingers (culture of death see above), and are now forced to help pay for elective abortion coverage. He destroyed the whole idea of individuals and families to choose health care that meets our needs without violating our beliefs or subsidizing life-ending drugs and procedures. That doesn’t matter to you government addicted idiots. And by the way, you’ve got to be one of the stupidest people in America. No one died because they couldn’t afford health care because no one is or was turned away from an emergency room or doctor when needed. But because of the far lefts desire to control everyone and their limited ability to think they refused to consider any alternative to insuring the un-insured. Why? Because of your warped ideology of controlling the citizenry. You continue to blame everything on everyone else. You continue to state that because the president is African American that he should be immune from his incompetent decision making. You hate George Bush and his decision making when he was president because he was white? You hate Abraham Lincoln and his decision making because he was white? You hate any decisions made by any Grand Jury because there are whites that are a part of the jury? You hate whites because they disagree with the most incompetent man to ever hold the office of President of the United States. He and his Attorney General hate state and local police because they want to control law enforcement across the country with a government controlled police force. Don’t you ever open your eyes and look what’s going on? You and your far left anarchists are the ones that are a joke and complete failures.

          • Rx7pj

            First you can’t read and second the reason most of your right wingers hate Obama is BECAUSE of his race, you just use “playing the race card” as an excuse to NOT talk about the truth.I’m not absolving any one from blame that’s your excuse . The health care system has NOT been ruined you moron. look at the facts, It was in ruin.

            Just because you don’t believe in children, (thank god you don’t have any) doesn’t mean everyone believes like you do. So why are you trying to push your bigoted opinion on others?? Abortion is legal and is helpful in certain cases to the mothers life or her livelihood and should be a decisions between her and her DOCTOR. NOT morons like you. Why do you think the issue came up to the supreme court in the first place??? Where the hell dooyou come up with this warped idea that people want government control???
            Nobody has died because they didn’t have health care insurance??? Are you really that blind?? Read this “It comes from a 2009 American Journal of Public Health study, which concludes almost exactly what Grayson said, with a bit softer language. “Lack of health insurance is associated with as many as 44,789 deaths in the United States, more than those caused by kidney disease.”

            And more of your garbage about blammoing everything on someone else. The ONLY thing I’m blaming is your stupidity for your inability to see the truth.
            The rest of your commentary is just total garbage, I never said anything about hating Bush or whites, where do you get this sh**????? Bush was probably the stupidest president we ever had and made some monumental mistakes, like the illegal unfunded wars, the unfunded tax breaks for the rich and the medicare part D mess. The most incompetent man to ever be the president is definitively NOT Obama, Bush has a better shot at that title.
            There are no far left anarchists any more then there are far right winged anarchists. What a load of horsesh**.
            The only joke here is you and your right winged crap.

          • Robert Pekarik

            You continue to prove you are racist. It’s fine for you to bash Bush but you do it for moral and righteous issues. You are a hypocrite of the highest caliber. When I state facts about Obama’s incompetence it’s because you say it because of his race but you’re so high and mighty and blinded by racism you don’t even know that your the true racist. Everything true and upright to you is garbage. What about the over 30.000,000 who still don’t have health insurance thanks to your left wing social nightmare called Obamacare? Check out the stats for the past 2 years since Obamacare has been shoved down Americans throats by the deceivers in the democratic party. So you deserve to live and the unborn deserve to die. There is no moral or rational reason to kill children in the womb but you left wingers are immersed in the culture of death. Death to the unborn is your contribution to America. Transforming America by tearing apart our Constitution is your end game. The democrats and far left are nothing more than cowards who throw everyone and everything they can under the bus because of their warped and anarchist ideology. The far left has become the sickness and disease that infects every area of our society until they are all voted out of office and relegated to the garbage dump of history. This is America pal not some idiotic socialistic cesspool that you desire. Whatever country you came from go back. You and your kind have done enough damage to America. We’ll bring it back without any help from the far left haters.

          • Rx7pj

            God are you ever delusional. I’m racist? ?? Where did you get that assumption? Because I along with 90% of the world believes Bush made horrific decisions, especially the illegal wars that makes me racist??? WOW. Nor am I a hypocrit as you think , Obama is only incompetent in your eyes, and you haven’t shown anything to substantiate your statements., except your hate for the ACA. Why do you refer to it as Obamacare??? That was a word coined by the right as a deragatory term to slur the ACA. And you use it with great pride. The only blinded racist here is you. Why don’t you look what that means before making more ignorant comments.
            “The left is immersed in a culture of death” REALLY, where do you get thiz crap????

          • Robert Pekarik

            90% of the world, coming from a pathetic far left hypocrite. Your words mean absolutely nothing. How about 90% of America believes that Obama is the worst president this country has ever had? You don’t want to believe it because you are truly the delusional one. How about some real facts: Obama’s world view and policy objectives, to make the world safer the United States must be less safe. To make the world stable, the United States must be less stable. To make the world prosperous, the United States must be less prosperous. To make the county less racist, the United States must become more racist. Oh, by the way I’m still waiting for your response on the 30,000,000+ that do not have health insurance due to the sky high costs of buying insurance. Don’t forget this president cares more about what people think of him than he does the country. This period of our nation will go down as one of the most incomprehensible mistakes that the people have ever made, putting a man in office who was so completely over his head yet refused to admit it and because of his ego has set America back hundreds of years. Now that’s something you far left transformers can and will be proud of. By the way, your final statement about “i know this is America “pal” but obviously DON”T. Is the truest statement you have made so far in any of your moronic posts. The only change I would make to your self admitted ignorance of not knowing this is America because of the fundamental changes and damage heaped upon America during the past 6+ years would be adding “care” after DON’T. Pathetic far left hypocrite.

            When on the losing end of an argument always fall back on the much over used race card. I think your party has got all the mileage they will get from that one

          • Rx7pj

            Wrong, why is it every time someone mentions the word black, you right wingers automatically use the term “race card”???
            Why are you so afraid to speak the truth about your stance on race relations. Throwing out “the race card” instead if admitting your racism won’t get you their vote. And yes racism is very alive in America today, and very well practiced by at lot of the people on this site.
            I’m NOT on the losing end of an argument, it’s just not possible to get blind people to see the truth.

          Get a life, hating Obama only shows your bigotry or racism, your choice.

          • conductor1

            It’s not bigotry or racism, it’s simply contempt for a President who doesn’t respect his country.

          • Rx7pj

            Garbage, you’re either racist or extremely bigoted. your actions outweigh your ridiculous words. Why can’t you right wingers just admit you’re racists??? Instead yo always come up with this race card crap. By the way Obama is democrat, Calling all democrats liberal just shows your ignorance..

          • conductor1

            I didn’t didn’t say all Democrats are liberals, but I don’t have a problem saying it. Of course Democrats are either liberals, extreme liberals, or some flavor of progressive socialist. Pick your poison.

            So I’m a bigot? A bigot is someone who is intolerant toward others’ opinions. People like yourself call conservatives racists and bigots because you are intolerant toward our opinions. Part of the reason Democrats got their asses handed to them on Nov. 4 was BECAUSE they have been calling people who disagree with Obama’s policies racists and bigots.

            A lot of people had had enough of that crap. Both those who voted for and against Democrats expressed their intolerance either toward Democrat ideas or the prospect of the opposite. That would make us all bigots, which is obviously absurd. But let’s be fair if we’re going to be absurd, as fairness is so important to “liberals”.

            Again, I promise you that if Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren run for President, they will see the same contempt that Obama earned for his policies, and that contempt will begin with their first socialist speech or actions if elected.

          • Rx7pj

          • conductor1

            And no chance of you understanding Nov. 4.

          • Rx7pj

            Ya, I do. You don’t

          • conductor1

            Tell us what you understand from Nov. 4.

          • Rx7pj

            Approx 25% of the eligible voters voted for republicans. Which was enough to gain them some seats in congress.
            No mandate, no majority.

          • conductor1

            According to US News & World Report, 40.9% voted in the 2010 mid-terms, and 36.6% in 2014 — not 25%, and not radically uncharacteristic of mid-term elections.

            If exactly 50% plus one person had voted, that would be a majority, and then you’d interpret it differently? I think even if 80% had voted, various liberals would argue that not everyone was represented. And if it were 100%, liberals would “go Gruber”, and say that people couldn’t understand the issues. Bottom line is… no percentage is enough to send a message to liberals.

            Know what, though? I hope liberals keep thinking and talking this way, because it will likely help in 2016.

          • Rx7pj

            Apparently math wasn’t your strong suit in school huh?? If 36% of the elgible voters voted and lets say 60% voted republican that means 18% of the elgible voters agree with you. Hardly a majority.
            If 50% of the elgible voters voted and 60% of them voted republican that would be 30% of elgible voters voted republican. It would change nothing.
            If you want to quote what the majority of Americans think then get the majority’s opinion. This election was NOT a majority.
            I know that’s hard for you to understand, ask you mom maybe she can help you with the math.
            By the way this election will have zero effect on the 2016 one. What will is how badly the right screws thing up again.

          • conductor1

            As I already said, if 100% of eligible voters voted against Democrats, it would make no difference to you whatsoever. You’d probably say it didn’t represent all the people. And if all the people voted against Dems and liberal policies, you’d find a reason to ignore that as well, such as the public’s inability to understand the benefits of liberal policy. Liberals always have an excuse, and I think it is extremely difficult for them to live with rejection. As for 2016, a big ship doesn’t change course instantly. It took six years to turn it in a new direction, and the GOP has a great opportunity. I don’t think they’ll live up entirely to my expectations, but I think they’ll do enough smart things to look good in 2016. Right now, you’d better figure out if you’re better off with Socialist Lite or Socialist Ultra as a candidate.

          • Rx7pj

            I know what the majority is based on you are the one stating that the last election showed the “majority if america ” voted against Obama. I just showed you that is crap and you dont like it. I never said I was a a liberal thats your delusion again. All I’ve ever said is your rhetiric is crap, full of lies and half truths at best but mainly just hate mongering. I’ve never offered any excuses as you put it just FACTS. Time to wake up.
            Your description of the 2016 election shows your ignorance. Just exactly do you think the republicans are going to do to help our economy, which is one of their biggest bitches.

          • conductor1

            I though it was pretty obvious that majority referred to a majority of eligible voters, since except for Democrat voter fraud, eligible voters decide who and what is going to represent them. As for those who don’t vote, they obviously support the majority will by proxy. So unfortunately for you, you are faced with a meaningful majority via Nov. 4.

            I also think you may have meant rhetoric instead of rhetiric, but then who knows.

            I’ll give you a more detailed prediction for 2016 if you can tell me which candidate it’s gonna be, Socialist Regular Size or Socialist Queen Size.

          • Rx7pj

            What a load of horsesh**. There was NO voter fraud. with the possible exception of the voter suppression laws the republicans passed . Those that didn’t vote did NOT endorse the vote by proxy, that’s just garbage and you know it. There was NO meaningful majority on Nov 4th. 25% of the voting public is NOT a meaningful majority in anybody’s book. Get a life.
            I could care less about your prediction of 2016. but there is not going to a socialist candidate that I know of. in any size, whatever that means.The democratic front runner is still Clinton, but the election is a LONG way away.

          • conductor1

            Uh huh…of course there’s no Democrat voter fraud, and I’ve got a great fixer-upper to sell you. Familiar with the Old Dominion Univ. recent study which estimates that 1.2 million illegals voted in 2012? With races such as Al Frankton winning by about 350 votes, I’m sure you think it wouldn’t have made any difference, right?

            Yes, those who don’t vote, do so by proxy. They know full well that’s the case, they just don’t give a damn, and would rather gripe about not being represented. For example, the blacks in Ferguson, 67% of the town’s population, voted in the 90%+ white police force, the white police chief, the white County Executive, the white Mayor, and 5 of 6 white City Council members, all via a very small percentage of their numbers going to the polls. Guess you’d have to call those white voters a “meaningful” majority, wouldn’t you?

            Hate to break a couple other things to you, but Hillary is a Progressive, and Progressives are socialists. And campaigns for President begin “a LONG way off” these days. From what I’m seeing out of the press and Congressional Democrats, it almost looks as if they are hoping Warren, Socialista Industrial Strength, will run.

            Ask a Democrat how much tax is enough, and he’ll never answer you. It’s a moving target. So what do you consider a “meaningful” majority? Entertain me.

          • Rx7pj

            According to most people who know what the study made by Old Dominion is not worth the paper is written on. They talked about NON citizens NOT illegal aliens like you refer to. plus the study accounts for all races of people not just Mexicans as you assume. they account for only 25 % of the total anyway. They were several races determined by a slim margin on BOTH sides, why don’t you look into voter fraud created by the republicans???
            An NO people who don’t vote do NOT do so by proxy, that’s garbage. They may not give a damn but that does not mean they support the outcome of the election.
            Clinton is a democrat, it just YOUR deluded opinion that says she is progressive. And Progressives are not necessarily socialist any more then republicans are.
            I answer you stupid question about taxes, even though I consider myself an independent. Our graduated tax structure was put in place to give the lower class ( poverty ) people a chance to get a head where the wealthy could afford additional taxes. So what we have in place now would be adequate IF the rich didn’t pull tax avoidance tricks to lower their owed taxes , kind of like Romney did.
            A meaningful majority is 51% if the eligible voters, NOT very hard to figure out is you know third grade math.
            That’s the last time I’ll even try to educate you, go play with yourself for your entertainment like you always do.

          • conductor1

            I didn’t say aliens, or Mexicans. I said illegals, meaning citizen’s ineligible to vote. I also didn’t mention an estimated 400,000 people who voted in two states. There’s no Acorn style crap in our elections, Democrat “poll watchers”, dead voters, etc.. No Democrat voter fraud at all. You and I both know it’s a significant number. Republicans may gerrymander like Democrats (I lived in a state, Oregon, where the Dem. Secretary of State manipulated ballot measures in the voter’s pamphlet among other things), but they don’t recruit ineligible, dead, and multi-state voters. They have a hard enough time just getting their base to vote. Thank God Louisiana law prohibits political activity within 600 feet of polling places.

            Clearly, people who don’t vote approve of others making the decisions for them. This was true of 3-4 million conservatives, my group, that stayed home in 2012. Surely you can understand the impact of that and how it has affected who runs a place such as Ferguson as well.

            So Clinton not a Progressive? Another childish lie. Hillary Clinton’s own words, July 23, 2007 Democratic debate hosted by CNN: “I prefer the word Progressive, which has a real American meaning, going
            back to the Progressive era at the beginning of the 20th Century. I CONSIDER MYSELF A MODERN PROGRESSIVE.”

            You can call yourself independent all you want. Independents at this point are about 2 to 1 against Obama’s policies. That doesn’t sound like you.

            So 51% of eligible voters is meaningful, huh? Here you go math genius: 57.5% of eligible voters voted in 2012. Obama received 51.1% of that, meaning 29.3% of eligible voters. In 2008, turnout was 61.6% turnout, and Obama wins with 52.9%, meaning Obama gets 32.6% of eligible voters. So by your standards, neither his election or reelection reflected a “meaningful” majority.

            Turns out there wasn’t any national election in the 20th century that could meet your criterion, which obviously makes it unrealistic. As a friend used to say, that’s about as sharp as the edge of town.

            You may have thought illegals but the report you refer to talks about non citizens. Not illegals. And you have NO proof of ANY voter fraud. What you are quoting is right winged garbage from right winged web sites, not facts.
            Where do you come up with the idiotic assumption that if you don’t vote you approve of who was voted in??? That’s insane.
            Your idea of Clinton being a progressive is NOT her idea. Somehow you think progressives are evil or the devil. Clearly that is NOT what she meant. Why don’t you try some honesty sometime? ??
            You cant even state what these policies of Obama’s that you think are do bad are. All you do is keep saying they are all bad. So don’t tell me what I think or independents think , you’re clueless.
            YOU are the one using erroneous numbers to try to support your ridiculous opinions of what the “majority ” of Americans believe. Winning elections is a different story. By the way my president is YOUR president unless you live in another country, which is were you belong.

          • conductor1

            The Old Dominion study is right wing? Haven’t you heard that liberals run our higher ed system?

            That’s the way voting works…a vote not cast means an advantage of +1 for your opposition. Pretty simple concept for most adults. 6% of blacks voted in Ferguson on Nov. 4. Even a black civil rights leader guesting on Al Sharpton’s radio show tonight made that point. So if blacks are saying it, it might be politically correct now for you to repeat it.

            So first you boldly proclaim Clinton is not a Progressive, though she boldly says she is. Then you spin like a top and say that what you REALLY meant was…that her concept of a Progressive and mine are two entirely different things. Evil, yes, some Progressives are, others perhaps misled. The devil? That’s your idea. Bottom line, you were caught in a lie, and couldn’t admit it, so you came up with a new lie. O what a tangled web we weave….

            What erroneous numbers? I pointed out that achieving a majority of 51% of eligible voters is totally unrealistic — That was your stated criterion for a “meaningful” majority. I pointed out that Obama won with about 33% of the eligible vote, and called it a mandate. You seem confused as to what is meaningful. Suffice it to say, when Democrats win, it’s meaningful, and when the opposition wins, it’s not.

          • Rx7pj

            More typical right winged nonsense. Boy fix sure has you in their corner. You sound exactly like the morons on their shows. “Liberals run our higher education ” I guess that means your NOT educated, that makes sense. Goes along with the rest of your ignorance.
            Your hate for anything you can’t understand or that fix didn’t tell you is obvious. So I’ll try one last time.
            If you did not vote if does NOT mean you agree with the outcome of the election. All it means is you are going to have to live with the results . The other point you can’t understand is what the majority of the American peoples opinion is. I said the last electing was NOT a majority of the elgible voters and NOT what the opinion of the majority of the American public. Some how you think that means that since in all recent presidential elections the winner had less then 50% of the elgible vote. That means the same as public opinion. WRONG.
            Clearly you want to assume that the election outcome dictates what public opinion is. Your WRONG but too blind to see it
            by the way why don’t you share your opinion of what YOU think a progressive is, before you make more aasinine comments about Clinton or that progressives are socialists. I don’t think your know what that means either. It’s just a term you heard used in fix news .

          • conductor1

            You lied about Hillary, then obfuscated the lie with another lie — a standard Progressive tactic.

            If you don’t know higher ed is dominated by liberal faculty and administration, you’re in denial — a standard Progressive tactic.

            According to polls leading up to the election for quite some time, Nov. 4 results were consistent with public opinion on major issues. You can deny that, too. Not a problem.

            I hope Progressive continue calling Republicans, Tea party members, and Conservatives uneducated, racist, fear-mongering, and anti-women. It helped us on Nov. 4 and I think it will in 2016 as well. Progressives may need some fresh ideas. If they could get the legions of unemployed working and off government assistance, food and energy costs down, a better grasp of the threat from Radical Islam, secure the border, and defuse rather than stoke racial division, the GOP wouldn’t have a chance in 2016. Nah, Progressives will double down.

          • Rx7pj

            Well it looks like you got it all figured out. Enjoy your delusion. Let me know when the right gets the woman’s vote or the blacks, hispanic LGBT or young people’s vote. Because they are don’t have them now, and their policies are NOT attracting them.

          • Robert Pekarik

            You have no brain and no common sense. This is why the liberal/progressive ideology is doomed for failure in the United States. That’s why it works in Russia and China because the people there are to afraid to speak out and expose the corruption and stupidity that goes on. Wow! Sounds a lot like a place Rx7pj would flourish in. A place where you will always be guaranteed 3 hots and a cot for the rest of your life. Use some of our tax money that you’re collecting for a Passport. And if you don’t have enough for the flight to one of these countries everyone of us on this site will chip in and see you off.

          • Rx7pj

            Are you really that stupid??? You think Russia and China are progressive??? or liberal??? What an idiot. Go there yourself you moron, they more closely match YOUR idiotic ideology.

          • Robert Pekarik

            Russia complete government control of every citizens life. China complete control of every citizens life. United States far left liberal/progressives attempting first with our health and then with anything else they can control through the government. Wow! sure sounds the same to all of us right wingers. That’s why we are on to your fundamental transformation garbage. You’re living in the wrong country to think that we will put up with the far left attempted destruction of America. You need to get out while the gettings good and peddle your insanity somewhere else.

    So you all really think it matters????? Dose it matter if there is a democan or a
    Republicrat in either of the houses? You all remember the House of
    Representatives and the Senate, the bodies of cut throats and turn coats, the
    folks that are support to represent the People and the States respectfully.
    Well they do not now, they have not in the past, and chances they will do more
    of the same in the future. And that same is to fuck us just as hard as they can
    for as much as can for as long as they can. Like I said So you all really think it matters?????

    • Robert Pekarik

      The republicans have not abandoned the Constitution. The democrats ignore it completely. Who’s been putting these far left judges on the courts so they can take the Constitution and interpret it to suit the far left ideology. They don’t care if they are breaking the law, they think it’s the right thing to do. Government control of everything. This is the mantra of the democratic party. Look at the people running it, Pelosi, Reid, Wasserman-Schultz, Sharpton, Farrakahn, Obama, Holder and on and on. These people are the most deceitful and hypocritical people in the country. The entire democratic party is based on the BIG LIE. Let’s rid America of the democrat party disease and that will send a message to the republicans and whomever else decides to run for office. The democrats have broken their oath to defend, protect and enforce the Constitution and the laws of America. They make laws up as they go along and foment racism and division across the nation. They are the party that support criminals, terrorists and anarchists. Is this what America wants?

    • patriot 86

      It may not be a night and day change but I shudder to think what would have happened had the demacrooks kept the senate.

  • Bama Bill

    Alabama has two very good honest senators, Sessions and Shelby. My Rep. Martha Roby has done nothing yet for me to criticize. and we amended the state constitution to “Ban all foreign laws”, which has driven the ‘muzlims’ nuts! Also guns and hunting and fishing are “RIghts” in Alabama, we added that to our constitution. Ya, I know, those “Dumb Ole Rednecks”! 😉

    I wrote my Rep. asking her to pass a bill to require “ALL” citizens to have ACA, including those in congress and the unions. IF that won’t kill the ACA, nothing will! SEIU would empty their war chest to fight that!

    • patriot 86

      Alabama has it’s shit together from the looks of it .Pelosi is complete scum and should be imprisoned .

  • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

    I’ve seen what the DEMOCRATS have done these last SIX YEARS and its not been a joyful ride its been a down RIGHT DISASTER. I think the people have spoke and want a CHANGE AND NOT THE CHANGE THE DEMOCRATS HAVE GIVEN AMERICA TO DAY. The Republicans might not be perfect but i know they would not sell us down the road that Obama and his goons are doing to us now.

    • patriot 86

      Touche friend ‘ I too can’t see them doing anything near what the demacrooks have tried to do to america .I see a conservative swing coming and if it is shown to be working these last two years maybe the american people [ the smart ones at least ] will put in a man like Rubio or maybe WALKER as the next pres to keep the ball rolling and not that bitch KILLARY who will derail all the progress they could have made .

  • georgethorvat

    Folks: If you really believe that a Republican controlled congress is going to make any difference then there’s something drastically wrong with me, because the way this country has been run in D.C. ever since Woodrow Wilson: I just don’t see it happening. It’s going to be the same strokes; just with different people.

    • patriot 86

      I don’t think so ‘ With the republicans in power we are not likely to see any new attacks on the second amendment and I think they will be much more conservative with spending .

    • conductor1

      I am just as skeptical of the GOP leadership as you are, however, what is going to matter this time is how much they want to win in 2016. This will require them to be productive. My instinct is that you and I might have to give them a B instead of an F.

  • Edward M Ritzmann Jr

    How sweet it is.

  • joão cezar

    It don’t mean anything! The Republican leadership is firmly in lock step with the Democrats, and do everything the Democrats want, anyway! We sent Tea Party candidates up to be elected, and the Republican leadership will not only NOT help them, but the leadership actively disparages the Tea Party candidates, and the leadership continues to do “business, as usual” with the Democrats! This is exactly why we need “Term Limits” for all congressmen, so that we, the people, can send people to Congress who will do what we, the People, want them to do, which is NOT ‘Business, as usual!”

    The story above states, “Landrieu’s loss leaves Obama’s Democrats without a single Senate seat in America’s Southern states.” Do they not consider Florida a southern state? We still have Sen. Bill Nelson (D) in office here in Florida. (unfortunately)

    • James Alverson

      Sorry Carol Florida is no longer a southern State. There are more Yankees in Florida then Long Island New york.

    Any and all democrats that still support obama now that his birth certificate has been proven to be fraudulent are oath breakers and should be removed from office before the next election.
