A good article entitled "Obama's Big Sell Out" was recently written by Matt Taibbi. It chronicles just what a phony Obama is. The left, including myself, was duped big time.

You dont go to war with the government. They are at the ends of the strings being pulled.
It needs to be a war between the middle class and the elite. The elite tell the government what to do so we have to go after them. They are easy to find, just go to the most effluent neighborhoods.

As a liberal in many ways, I was delighted when Obama won the election. But Obama began to betray the liberals as soon as he was elected.

There is likely to be a period of disruption. Destroying the middle class is not happening as well as the bad bad guys would like.

Personally, I think people get the government they deserve. If you're fed up with the way things are, here's a thought.... Forget all the Republicans versus Democrats BS, forget Left versus Right, forget Liberals versus Conservatives. and DON'T VOTE THE BUGGERS IN!!!!!

The Internet sources for the most part are worthless to begin with. They are even more biased than the traditional media. Blogs and pseudo-news sites are completely unreliable and spread more propaganda than anything. The Internet is a far more powerful tool for them than us.

I really don't get how people were 'duped' .... You've had God-only-knows how many years of successive Republican and Democrat presidents and governments grinding your nation to the ground, being totally self-serving, spending WAY more than you can afford, pandering to Big Business and lobbyists, and basically being two sides of the same coin.

There are only two possible reasons that I can see that could ever possibly divide ordinary Americans into two fiercely separate camps to start another civil war.
White versus black, or Democrat versus Republican.
I just cannot ever see it happening like that.............
This is the most staggeringly stupid and breathtakingly ignorant post I have ever read and shows an EXTREME lack of knowledge of your own country's history. The last civil war was not about Democrats and Republicans, but over slavery.
When everyone looses their jobs and all the pension funds collapse and the Government can't fund welfare any more, that is when fighting would start... when a starving people have nothing to loose and everything to gain and when events move so fast and the Governemetn is so dysfunctional that events outpace its ability to cope with them. Its what happend in the French Revolution and in Russian in 1917.
