I personally can't believe anybody was stupid enough to vote for the guy.
It was just so obvious to me.
And everyone wanted change. However I certainly don't think this is the change everyone expected or was looking for.
In my Opinion the Tea Party is the only way we are going to get political change. Do you want proof? The current administration call's them extremist. They know the people are coming and they are tying to label them as anything but the people. To the point of trying to play the race card. Well tell all the black members and all the other minority that. It's so easy to see through. The may not be perfect However they are a political party create by the people over night that have had enough.
How many times can you raise taxes to pay for bad finance and foreign policy. They take 30 percent now. And they want more? mean while GE pulls in 16 BILLION in profits last year and they pay no taxes. Oh I don't think so.
I pray we have at least one good candidate this year.

I whole heartedly agree with you sir. I voted for Obama but never will do again I promise, however, I did not fall prey to Bush Jr. for two terms. When I saw the Obama financial team in the beginning I knew I was sold out but this confirms it as well.
Just a simple review of Bush's cabinet can explain how we got here but without a doubt Obama is a typically sell out to military complex like the rest. I heard he was even pushing the new jet to Brazil and the rest in South America on his last trip, what a defense/corporate/bankster shill.
I wonder how much it is really, I am sure a collective could buy him off as well since they are all for sale.

If it makes you fell any better, which i doubt, I dont believe that it matters who is in office. I believe that the President of the US and most other foreign Presidents, answer to a higher authority.
Call it Illuminati, Bohemian Club, Bilderbergers or the Masons, I dont know, who it is and it doesnt really matter because there is nothing that can be done about it.
I believe that this was happening slowly (frog in boiling water) up until the beginning of the the decade but then they got impatient and decided to put it in the "fast trac"
No, i have no proof, yes it is all speculation but it is what I believe, so take it for what its worth.

You want to know how to throw a wrench in the system? NOBODY vote for either Republican nor Democrat!
If we all were to vote Independent ( provided there is a candidate even running as an Independent ), and we all were to put a check mark next to the representative labeled Independent....that would speak volumes!

I'm not even American, and I think it's so damn sad to see this country go down hill.
There was so much potential that no other country had.
