Regardless of party bickering, I think it should be important to note the overall trend is that people are not satisfied with their institutions, and more so as time goes on.
The Gallup poll shows that congress is dead last in confidence amongst people. See chart below.

Various institutions have markedly lower confidence levels within recent years – media, schools, government, churches – the list is telling.
Also to note, a quote here from Oxfordjournals.org:
“…we provide evidence that individuals with low confidence in institutions exhibit low levels of political participation, show increased tolerance for violent means to achieve political ends…”

Corruption and Confidence in Public Institutions: Evidence from a Global Survey
Whoever has the money has the power to put whomever they want into office. The rest of us can stew about it, but until a major action is taken by the people at large, nothings gonna change.
Knowing that the vast majority of sheeple, erm people will vote amongst the two biggest players is a gamble that has 50/50 odds. Easy bet. We need to break the cycle. Unlimited and undisclosed campaign funding? Really? What a deal America, what a deal….

ps: Heff, if you felt that strongly, why do you not write directly to the President and see what kind of reply you might get...

Wow....After reading thru some of these posts, I now understand why this country is falling apart. The President lies and lies for 4 years plus, after lying for 2 years during his first campaign and people are now surprised that he isn't the man they voted for and re-elected only 4 months ago???

OH, the President is just a thinker and that is why he takes long pauses.....NO, he does that so he can make up lies in his head (Body language anyone).

We were always told has children that 2 wrongs, don't make a right. Well, we have 2 Political Parties and they BOTH do really, really, wrong things for America, and nothing ever ends up right. The writer of the post compares Obama to Bush....well of course because they are finally realizing that neither party has any interest in "REALLY" fixing America for Americans and not Politicians!!

It’s been very interesting to read the replies to this thread. In my opening post to the collection, I tried to be a little more forgiving...a little more understanding of the people that chose to vote this way. I soundly disagreed with them, but they are allowed their voice. After all, I believe in freedom and personal responsibility. What kind of a hypocrite would I be if I said you are free to vote as long as you don’t vote for that guy or that one over there?

I have pondered the choices people made. It makes me wonder…why? Why do some of our fellow citizens feel that we need a Nanny/Police state to take care of them? To me, the answer is clear…fear…plain and simple fear.

They fear the unknown, they fear failure…they fear responsibility. They fear they may not have the necessary intestinal fortitude to rise to the station in life they are told as children they can have. So instead of doing your best and maybe failing once or twice or a dozen times…why not just wait for someone to give it to you and let the community pay for it. If it means the loss of a few rights…that’s ok…right?

No, it’s not ok.

I would rather be poor and free than in a comfortable prison cell. The cell might not have walls and bars that you can see, but they are there…just try to step beyond them and see what happens.

I applaud those that have the guts to look around and say it as they see it now “this is not what I thought was going to happen”…it’s a start. It would have been nice for this revelation to have come sooner…later is better than never.

There is and has only been one solution to our problems…freedom. Freedom in choices, freedom in commerce, freedom in economic opportunity…if you want to fix our broken system…the first step is to remove all the boundaries and cow herder obstacles…”We the people” can take it from there…

Just my opinion.

That is what he *wants* us to think....sad for him, a lot of us still have our own opinions.....

I found this part of your link...well..laughable....


Prevented a Bush Depression and Improved the Economy

7. Pushed through and signed the Democratic-sponsored American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, otherwise known as “the stimulus package.” The bill passed, even though only three Republicans voted for it. In a major departure from the previous administration, he launched recovery.gov, a website that allows taxpayers to track spending from the Act. 1.usa.gov... 1.usa.gov...

I find myself digging deep and not finding so much as a pebble of sympathy for my fellow Americans who have time and again chosen in direct opposition to what I believe and what I knew was right and best. With few exceptions, the movies you like are crap and the music you like is offensive. Fashion? Your fashion is Retro San Quintin and while I see that pretty much all of the religions are an abomination before God, most of you have utterly lost the knowledge of good and evil. Gay Marriage? Whores for Role Models? Short Dwarfs for figures of admiration? Your Music is a quick sign of the sickness but it does not take a man with sharp eyes to see your is a most corrupted generation and I simply have no sympathy for you. Obama is your Role Model and there is no casting him off now...you have made your beds.

You "Obama" supporters are now reaping what you have sewn. You had 4 years of this fool and seen the damage he has done to our country but yet you vote him right back in??? Einstein said "Insanity is defined as doing the same thing but expecting a different result." You know he is a muslim and is therefore devoted to the destruction of America from within, yet you vote for him?? I think you are just blinded to the fact that he APPEARS black. Just like this low information voter on youtube says..."you wanna know WHY I voted for Obama?? Because he's BLACK...Black,Black,Black,black, BBBBLLLLLLLAAAAACCCCKKKKK!!!!" He is 50% white too but people forget and overlook that and so he can do no wrong because hes black. You are now getting exactly what you deserve for blindly putting this Muslim, Anti-American naked Marxist Extremist right back into office. Dont come crying to me and trying to rub my nose in "it" after he destroys our beautiful country. The only thing he know is "tax and Spend, Tax and Spend" and just keeps on racking up our debt as fast as he can because it is his mission as a muslim to destroy us.

Do I have "sour grapes" because he won? HELL YES!! Because my beloved USA is finished now. THANK you all you ignorant fools!! Thanks for nothing...

O.K., that, but, earlier, my case, for an example, shouldn't all Americans be ashamed of? If you ever had any shame... Listen, Montgomery is envolved, in time when he was embassador, meaning US Government. 1 BILLION USD, ENOUGH.

The whole romney would be worst is wrong. I voted for Gary but I knew Obama would win n I knew he would be the worst if not the one or the worst presidents, base on his communist connections in the past, the eugenics men in his cabinet, n the fact the the globalist owned media supported him. Romney even though supported by the same interest, would had to shuffled the crazy people in office n would have slow the government takeover down. But in a way I was glad Obama won because I think more people are waking up to him.

You cite the Constitution & Bill of Rights to him as if he gives a rat's behind about them.

You plea to him as one of 'the people' as if he cares about what you or the people want.

Dude, you are a moderator & 4-year member of the world's foremost conspiracy website. I don't know what Obama you thought you were voting for, but you got the exact Obama his detractors told you you were going to get.

You may have spent a couple of weeks after the election reveling in & reminding us about 'your' victory, but as this country continues to circle around the crapper on the way to the sewer, I have the next 4 years to rub your nose in it.

Thank you, Hef, for your vote against the founding ideas of this once-great country!

Good one Bill...

I haven't heard that one yet...or this one...

"when you listen to fools, the mob rules"

Sodahead


That is a quote from Black Sabbath when Ronnie James Dio was the front man. Who knew the words from the song "The Mob Rules" would now be so prophetic? R.I.P Ronnie

Edit: Heff, I will not "rub your nose in it", I would have only voted for Ron Paul myself, but regardless of how you voted we are all in the same boat now. I truly hope he reads the open letter and has it brought to his attention. I have a sneaking suspicion that your eloquent and well thought out meaningful words will fall on deaf ears (blind eyes?) however. Every time I have seen you post it is regardless of whether I agree or disagree always a post worthy of respect, this is no different. We are now all on the boat which is gliding down the river and my only thought is that: "Now that we are on the boat, how do we get it to the shore so we can all get off the boat?". We are all in this together, so now is the time to solve our problems and it is not the time to throw people off the boat to drown.

The powers that be are following the same basic template that has been used to control people since before the founding of the United States... Just with some newer "amendments" to keep with the changing times. Those who have trained people to fear God have had absolutely no use for him... Religious zeal and nationalistic morale which had been used to make brainwashed masses cave in on any naysayer, defector or "free-thinker" has slowly, methodically been transforming into the polar opposite, which is the lack of central ideals/God/self-pride combined with an illusion of "progressivism", peace and open-mindedness... Pedaled to render any passionate purveyor of human rights as a violent threat or a terrorist. Opposite trends used for the exact same purpose - altruism sold to others by hypocritical zealots. The "double standard". Increasing friction always results in fire.

Sorry Heff, I mean no disrespect but in layman's terms "You got "served"! Your posts are always intelligent and well thought out, that is why I marvel at your surprise!

Perhaps something you should direct to this President is the following statement: It is said the definition of insanity is, waking up everyday and doing the exact same thing then expecting a different outcome......

Mr. Obama are you insane?

No point in blaming Obama for this mess he's just a front man.

The U.S. Govt is run by the banks and foriegn intrests. Every bill that is passed, every attack on the constitution, every push towards socialism/control is to benefit them.

We elect puppets who are manipulated by the "system" through back-door deals that put money in the politicians pockets so they keep doing what they are told. Then they use the media to sell it to us saying: "Thats the only way it works" and "blame the (insert political party or group) it's their fault."

All the while most of us just say: "Who care's about politics, did you see the (insert tv show/sporting event)?".

Most people dont care about politics/govt until they get hurt and I truely believe that is what it's going to take for any real changes to occur.

It sucks but I think putting our faith in politicians just doesnt work anymore.

Why are you surprised?... MILLIONS voted for him.... MILLIONS!

Don't blame the people, or their ignorance and apathy... Blame the media, and the overwhelmingly gullible and extremely manipulable masses that consume their agenda driven crap.

You could elect Satan himself in the USA, if you can get the media behind it.

That is exactly what they are doing but let's not call them "the powers that be" they are the global elite, the top 1% of the world's population that control all the wealth. These are the people that have manufactured the system of debt slavery that we are subject to and they keep us at each others throats because it distracts us from seeing who the real controllers are.

Blame Obama all you want but thats like blaming a figurehead on a ship for it being attacked by pirates and sunk.

How is anyone surprised this was the Obama they thought the were going to get? He ran a blank slate campaign and won again. He let you decide what he was for, with your own projections placed upon him. That why he never clearly defined why his 2nd term goals were...long story short, you knew he was a snake when you picked him up..

Did you, honestly, expect anything different?

He is a crook, from the Chicago crime family. Just like the majority of Republicans and Democrats in Washington. They are beholden to lobbyists and donors.

I don't mean to denigrate your character, but I think you are being a little naive, falling for the whole, hope and change bit.

Nothing WILL change in Washington until the Republicans and Democrats (and the lobbyists) are put on a gallows in front of the people. Only then will they realize the error of their ways. And by then it will be too late.

Washington needs a good cleansing, The right, the left, the media, the pundits....all of them. A do over, if you will. And any politician with "ties", looking to benefit himself, his business, a donors business, a foundation should be jailed for life,
