1. It looks like a lot of us Demo’s I didn’t bother to go out and vote.

When I voted last year, I voted for change, and I believe we could have had the change we wanted, but the Democrat party proved to be a bunch of delicate pussy willow pieces of tissue paper.

I will never again waste my time by voting, because I found that it really didn’t matter. One would think the Republicans were the ones who won last year. They played tough and dirty, and the Demo’s just sat back and took it all.

I still love President Obama, but I will never again vote for anyone.

2. Yeah, I’m a Catholic, but I must say it’s becoming harder and harder to swallow the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church, and all churches for that matter.

The church donated something like half a million dollars to fight against gay marriages. My question is if they are so against same sex marriages, why did they keep it hush, hush when many priests were found to be sex offenders? And why did the church pay millions upon million on lawyer’s fees to defend these priests?

And what about hypocrites like Jimmy Baker, and that odious man, Jimmy Swaggart, who was caught not once, but twice with prostitutes. I looked for the youtube video where he says something to the effect that if a man touches him, he will kill him, but he has deleted it.

Why throw stones at gays who want to marry, when so many traditional marriages are a farce, filled with adulterous affairs!

What a wonderful world this world would be if only people would live, and let live!

The only way to survive in Religion or Politics is to be a hypocrite and lie to the masses. All religious leaders are hypocrites and liars, and so are all politicians. They always have been, and will always be, regardless of religion or political party.

I would substitute ‘all’ with ‘most’, since there are honest people out there, but agree with what you are saying.

Although I often disagree with your approach to following the Democrats as I do anyone blindly supporting anything, I think you may be reading too much into this.

1) Virginia has voted against the party of the new President for every election since Carter. The guy that won the governor office there ran a good campaign and connected with Independents.
2) New Jersey has done the same since 1989 and is way overtaxed. People are ticked off and rightly so.
3) Maine - Try to remember of legal gay marriage wasn’t even talked about as a reality possibility until 5 years ago. To the majority of adults that isn’t that long. Its going to take many of them time to accept the idea. People don’t give up their preconceived notions at the flip of a switch no matter how logical the alternative may be.
4) Churches are basically clubs and while they may be hypocritical all-the-time its up to the club members to fix that. If they want to.

Howdy there my Lady
Yes, I wonder why we don't take the nasty Republicans on the issues, and make some change in this country. I try to be positive butt I don't want to go backward. Do you still own the house in CA, Furry Freak Bro from East Bay Area, Hayward.

republicans...
There will never be change, because the Republicans by hook or by crook do RULE.

No, my brothers, cousin and I let both houses go a long time ago. It was ridiculous to continue making monthly payments on houses that lost more than half their value. I have been able to keep the tiny monstrosity of a house that's close to the new medical school. When the value goes up a little more, I'll sell it.

I believe in voting. I mean, we have compulsary voting, and I am all for it. Having to vote doesn't mean that it has to count. You can donkey vote no worries, but at least it is (to a greater extent) the choice of the people.

I believe if you don't vote when you have that option, you don't really have the right to complain about what happens at the other end (this is kinda my life philosophy. You can complain about it if you try to do something about it :-)

The problem with this approach for people like myself- Let's say for a second the write in option isn't available (and thank God it is) my choices would be to vote for a group that generally agrees (essentially) it is okay to steal from everyone for the ostensible benefit of the very wealthy, and another who agrees it is okay to steal from everyone for the ostensible benefit of the very poor. Who do I vote for if I am under the belief that stealing is wrong, period?

A vote for either is an encouragement, and at least tacit approval of, the system.

Obama is a good man. But he is still a politician and he needs help in Congress. Nacy Pelosi is an incompetent boob and she is hurting Obama's chances to do anything.
I voted for Obama. But I didn't expecy any change. One man can not really do much. It will take a movement to make any real changes and Obama just isn't that kind of leader to create a movement. The real shit is coming down the road. Then we will see what Obama is really made off.

opens his eyes...
Yes he is a good man. I can see now that it doesn't take a good man to run this country against the Republicans who have proven to be vicious vultures towards him. The Reps have fought as dirty as can be, and the Democratic Party should have fought back just as dirty.

Perhaps it won't be too late if President Obama finally opens his eyes to wear the calzones it takes to duke it out with the enemy, and there's no dought, the Republican Party IS his enemy.

Well. I knew this day would come as soon as you threw yourself heart and soul into the political process. I said as much during the 2008 campaign.

Don't worry, the burnout doesn't last long.

heart and soul
I remember when you said that. Do you think I'll change my attitude, and go back heart and soul into it? I sure hope not, because it really changed me in more ways than one; and not for the better.

"I will never again waste my time by voting, because I found that it really didn’t matter."

I hope you'll reconsider, because it does matter. Obama may not be meeting your expectations right now, but if you sit out the mid-terms next year and the Republicans (or tea-baggers, or 9/12ers, or whatever Limbaugh and Beck are calling their party these days) win more seats in the House and Senate, the president will have zero chance of getting anything accomplished.

I'm frustrated like you are (perhaps not as much), but I refuse to let the inmates take over the asylum. I fought hard to get at least a little of my country back, and I'm not willing to give it back to the right-wing lunatics so they can pervert it all over again. Eight years is more than enough for one lifetime.

Change...it was not
I know you find it hard to believe that the people of this great nation do not believe anything that obama speaks. That is why the democrats did so bad. Obama speaks, the country does not want what he and his socialist buddies want. Plain and simple.

I believe the present count is now 31 different states have voted on gay marriage (abomination) read your bible, and each time this abomination has been voted down. The people of this great country just do not belive that when two men marry in a civil ceremony that it is anything they want to have anything to do with.

I do not agree with you on the church. You need to consider your attitude toward God, not the church. You are more important

I am glad we can disagree
An old man praying for you

Re: Change...it was not
I'm glad we can disagree, also. This is what makes our country so wonderful!

The more I watch the GOP, as I did yesterday, the more I find them repulsive.

I don't leave one single penny to the church anymore. The money I have to spare, I give to the causes I believe in such as the animals, the homeless, inmates, and one little girl from Africa. I believe in the Holy Trinity with all my heart and soul, and that's enough for me.

I'm glad you're praying for me, but I'll never accept that those prayers are come from an old man!

My view on the current status of American politics is this: those that qualify individuals only by party affiliation don't have enough smarts to read details. The GOP is in disarray, but not the ultra-cons, who, for the most part, are rallying the most conservative citizens to launch exaggerated, if not totally false, comments and accusations at anyone considered a Democrat. Democrats, in kind, are spewing every kind of defensive bile to blanket descriptions of GOPers.

The really nasty folks, the ultra-rich rabblerousers like Limbaugh and Beck, are riling people up through selective soundbites and questionable "facts" broadcast to the world. The truth is that Beck and Limbaugh, et al, have no stake at all in healthcare or taxes or any type of reform. Why? Because they're bloody rich egotistical jackoffs who care nothing for moderate anything. In the end they retain their power, their legions and, of course, their money. You, the ordinary citizen? They could give two shits about you, only your viewing/listening habits and your willingness to shell out 15 bucks for a book.

I digress.

The truth is that middle, moderate Americans are disgusted with these politicians. Obama was elected on the notion of change, a grand goal in these days of mud-slinging candidates. Will that survive? Probably not. And the next GOP frontrunner will continue to call out socialists, fascists and anarchists, even though 90% of them couldn't describe, much less define, any of those concepts.

Bah. I don't like thinking about politics any more. They're all incompetent, self-centered fools.

The aggrevation I feel towards the Democrats is that they don't fight back dirty like the GOP. I suppose I'm wrong in saying this.

Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, and the rest of these rascals don't give a damn about this country. All they care about is filling their pockets to the brim with money. The more smut they spew, the more they laugh on their way to the bank. They, as the GOP sicken me beyond words.

I believe that old woman, Michele Bachmann, is just trying to grab all the attention from that other old woman, the PAIN. It's all just attention, money grabbing games for them. They all sicken me!

I'm seriously going to try and do as you do, and that is stop watching, and thinking politics for a while.
