ATS is neutral...anyone can make a thread, pro or anti anything..so ATS is not pushing an agenda.
The people...the vocal fringe minority..will always be louder than the thoughtful majority...
This will happen now, and should the tides turn and you got Palin in the whitehouse,congress very right of center, the liberals will suddenly be
flooding the conspiracy boards with this and that, and the one loud anti-obama people will either be very quiet, or go into apologetic mode.
It is good to have a loud minority however, else we become to trusting of what the majority is being spoon fed. I personally think this whole birther
thing is stupid and a complete distraction hoax, but the same people pushing this movement do occasionally add something that is concerning..
Why hasn't obama ripped apart the patriot act and dulled its impact...or why hasn't obama simply went ahead and closed gitmo without a fight...if
the right is blocking it, then just pass it through. He will win no friends by caving into opposition when he was elected by a majority to persue his
plans...the minority opposition will oppose his move and effectiveness..that is sort of their job. Bipartisanship is a myth...its a contest, not for
the betterment of America, but to stand ahead of the competitors as a better ideal for America.
I blame Clinton!
