I hear that she runs with sizzors and doesn't use a handrail when she uses an escalator.


Let's burn the witch!



And when you kids are done with the hate-fest, maybe we can discuss the issues.

It does not matter. If people voted for her because they got a free ticket and a free gig from a country singer, just means there is no hope. Anyone in their right mind would have bought their own ticket and go vote for whom they wanted. If i didn't get a ticket from the Ron Paul guys, i would have bought my own bloody ticket.

There's no hate here. Just a 'gotcha' story that has brought some laughter into some lives of otherwise oppressed individuals. Who hasn't laughed when someone split their pants?
My primary interest with this story is that you have to buy a vote to cast, she bought 4k and gave them out. Dr Paul sold his at a substantial discount, but sold them none the less. Who's got the money to waste on poll voting? It's fair if everyone buys a ticket. More people than not are barely making it by thanks to the gov's superior ideology.

I lik a good laugh as much as the next guy.
But this is singling out one person when all the rest did the same darn thing.
No harm I suppose. Just my opinion.

That photo is priceless, we can go on for hundreds of pages.

She's rolling her eyes back like a Great White making a kill bite on a seal...how her husband has the time or energy to worry about other people's sexuality is beyond me.

I think the problem with everything lies in how we elect officials, or more specifically in how we elect the president.

All of these candidates spend outrageous sums of money and sling mud at other candidates in order to convince us that they are the best person for the job.

Knowing what the job entails, the overwhelming stress and pressure of being the leader of an entire nation, how could anybody in their right mind want to be president? Because they love their country so much?? Probably not.

I believe that anybody that is willing to go to such lengths to secure the job must have an unbelievable hunger for power. The kind of power that is possessed by the president and elected officials is corrupting.

Are there people who are fit to lead? Yes. But they understand how corrupting such power can be and they would not want the job because of it. Until we can figure out how to elect these types of people, we are doomed.

Please, break out with the picture of Ron Paul, or any of the other candidates unhinging their jaws like a python to swallow a corn dog whole. We could use more material here!

You know what's really frightening? Left leaning Ron Paul supporters who think they are for liberty, but trash all the conservatives who are actively promoting a return to the Constitution and the liberties our Founding Fathers intended us to thave. The reason? Because, although left leaners think that having liberty is what they want, they really only want their own special brand of liberty, which usually means trashing anything religious. Bunch of hypocrites.

Not to mention that the POTUS has been making backroom deals all along.

Uh huh... and just what did Obama do in the election??? He outmaneuvered McCain which was easy of course. And now we are all stuck with this Accident of a President. Its amazing to me that everyone thinks this election was so "historic". It WAS historic in one regard: For the first time in the history of the United States of America, some Americans elected someone to the highest office in the land who was supremely UNQUALIFIED to be put there. And Obama, just like Bachmann and every politician before her, manipulated people for advantage. Obama did exactly the same thing in the election. He manipulated people and played the race card. He played on people's deepest needs and failed to deliver on all of it because why? Because Obama never intended to deliver on anything. His goal is to employ socialism in this country because that is what he believes will work. Not in MY country. His 'friends' list is replete with communists and socialists, as well as domestic terrorists, convicted terrorists no less... Bill Ayers (terrorist, socialist), and Frank Davis (communist) are both touted by Obama in his OWN words as being highly influential on him. Since he has come into office, all he has done is to attack our country and what it stands for. He has lied consistently in nearly every single speech he gives. He continues to play on the heart strings of minorities while making sure they are FIRMLY dependent on the government for survival. So lets ask the question... What ever happened to Peggy Joseph, the black woman who said through tears, now that Obama was elected she wouldnt have to pay for gas in her car or worry about her rent.... Whatever happened to her? Sarasota Florida, where Peggy hails from is worse off now than when Obama was elected. I wonder if Peggy is happily employed and receiving government handouts? She DID say that if she votes for him he will help her... I think if so she is the only one...
So complain about Bachmann all you like but the current Village Idiot in the White House could be voted out if the opposing candidate was an empty Orange Juice container...

Incidentally the Oslo folks thought it was so historic themselves that they created history too. For the first time in THEIR history, they awarded a Nobel Prize to someone who had done absolutely NOTHING to earn it. In doing so, they degraded the meaning of the award to every previous recipient and will foster a "gee thanks..I guess" response for any future recipient... When I win the Nobel Prize I want it to mean something. Now sadly it will mean NOTHING to any future recipients. Take it for the cash only pay the 52% tax Federal Taxes plus the rest and be left with your 31% of the total or whatever it is now. Throw the award itself in the trash.

So anyway, Bachmann did nothing that all politicians have done for years and years. Obama however has turned it into a science in that somehow he made it seem racist to even ask if he is qualified to serve the office...

In case anyone doesn't understand how this works there. It's not about vote but organizational ability. The vote merely represents you ability to organize your support. This means money, free buses, food, tickets, whatever, to get your people there to cast that vote.

Those who fail at this do not have to motivational prowess to organize a viable campaign, so they drop out. Bachmann and Paul has the most ability to organize. Pawlenty did not and he dropped out.

The next chapter will be New Hampshire where the State is small enough for door to door contact and so forth. This vote cannot be about purchase but winning the argument of ideas. This primary will test the candidates, and those who lack the ability to win the argument will drop out. Those in the top three will go on to the next step and so forth.

So Iowa was not an election but a symbol of organizational power and ability. So the whole bought the vote thing means nothing because that was the idea in the first place. It was a " Caucus " not a " Primary ".


everyone needs to read this right here ^

THIS is what determines the POPULARITY of a canidate to make decisions like wether or not to invade a country etc...THIS ASININE process that has nothing to do with what is wanted or needed by "We The People"...

Country music, hot dogs, party organization, ticket buying...WTF does any of this have to do with POTUS? Foreign Affairs? War in Iraqistan? Economic Crisis? FUBAR Economy?

It has absolutely nothing to do with anything yet its a COMMON thing canidates go through to "prove" their worth as POTUS? Does anyone else see this as a problem? Is it really just me? It doesn't mean anything? Why is it on MSM? why is it in the "NEWS"?? Why o why if its just a silly crapfest of luxurious spending for voter support is it in the media and on ATS?

This country is becomming more and more like the movie Idiocracy?

I'm sorry but until today I never really understood Staw Polls or looked into their "concept" or how they work as I never believed in ANY of the presidential canidates in the last decade (they all sucked)...

The fact that this whole sharade of $$ buying off their voter support for an illusionary crapoll is COMMON practice is alarming...

If it means nothing and is a horrible indicator of who will be president and who has support....I have to ask, then WHY is it even being done? Then WHY are canidates spending thousands of dollars on this apparent "crap poll" that "means nothing"...im guessing because it does mean something...

I agree with you. When the wealthiest person gets elected because their campaign made it to the elections and they outspent all the rest, it means the best man didn't necessarily win. And when we have people like multi billionaire Soros playing this game and supporting the most Anti-American people he can find(remember Soros hated Bush and he hates America with a vengeance) then how can we ever hope to have a true representative of the people and the Founding Fathers principles.

Also, what people are looking for in a President is and can be skewed horribly by misrepresentaion and bad educaion. It's being done purposely in fact.

Yes, having liberty is what we want, that's whole point of individual liberty. And we want you to have what you want, for yourself. I have no problem with religion, until religious folks decide they need to impose what they want for themselves, onto others. That's when somebody else's individual liberty is threatened. I would stand up just as strongly against somebody trying to ban religion, therefore interfering with somebody else's individual liberty. So, no, we're not hypocrites.
