“You cannot answer that question..Because the Republican have done NOTHING for the people...Flip a coin..??? You confuse Lincoln,a Liberal,and Conservatives.. In 1860,Conservatives were called Confederates..”

“I gave you some of their best things and you say nothing for the people? Reagonomics made us a more stable nation. Lincoln was Republican. Just google it. DARPA brought you the internet. NASA brought a lot technologies. The fact that you disregard these republican successes show that you are clearly one dimensional and cant give credit where credit is due. You are not an informed voter. You are simply a fanatical democrat supporter. Please don't get offended by this, I don't mean to offend you but you simply don't know anything about the republicans. And I dont want to defend republicans either, I'm not a republican. I'm an independent that knows any better than falling for any party lines. It just irks me that you can be so uninformed and make such claims.”
“Tell me one thing the Republican Party has done for the American people,since "IKE" built the Interstates... Good ideas come with success stories.. So tell me ONE,any ONE the Republican Party done.. PLEASE...PLEASE ....PLEASE..
The Republican plan is to undo everything progressives accomplished,and is working.. Taking the tax dollars and give our dollars to the wealthy..
If Republicans can cut Social Security benefits by 25% now,they can steal the Social Security Trust fund,and give it to their MASTERS..”

“What I fear in a 100% democrat USA: Massive government and massive wasteful spending, massive waves of illegal amnesty, destruction of free market practices that have made USA the great nation it is, destruction of the small businesses with laws that don't consider them (Obamacare, minimum wage hikes, etc) higher taxes that will punish successful people and will cause our wealthy to defect to other nations, massive gun control. Republicans keep all that in check. Notable democrat presidents: JFK, Jimmy carter, Franklin Roosevelt.
What I fear in a 100% republican USA: way too benefits to the super rich to promote trickle down economics, taxes too low to generate the needed levels of revenue, more military interventions,reduced safety net (which can be a good if it forces people to work hard but that's not always the case), Notable republican presidents and selected contributions: Ronald Reagan (Reaganomics), Abraham Lincoln (slavery abolished), Dwight Eisenhower (DARPA, NASA).”
“No sir,..The T-Party has a plan.. It`s to eliminate everything decent that government does,at every level. Social Security is very popular..It`s demonized and called left wing extremism.. Social Security hasn`t cost taxpayers a dime.. It has a $2.6 Trillion surplus.. The "Small GUB MENT goal,to steal that cash and re-distribute it to the wealthy..Same here in Ohio..The T-Bags intend on stealing city income taxes.. My city tax goes to plow the streets in winter,fix the pot holes in summers..Provide decent police,fire,ems,and schools.. The T-Bags want that cash to give to their wealthy campaign contributors..”

“You are crazy. We have corrupt politicians. Everyone knows that. But I think that most of them are well meaning people with different opinions on how to do things. I like the republican mentality of making independent people that can actually succeed and become rich people through hard work. I support republicans on many issues regarding spending. (Not on cutting social security though). But republicans lose a big deal on social issues, their obsession with religion and employee rights and benefits. That's where I support democrats but I can't support a welfare state that democrats evangelize. No sane person can support either party 100%. If you do, you are not thinking very much. We are a country with problems and those problems need solutions. Our parties have different approaches to those solutions and again all we need is a mechanism to make them compromise when they can't agree.”
“Sorry pal...Only one party ran on,and was elected on,the promise to break our government..
"Small GUB MENT" a plan for the simpletons of Fox News.. A movement that steals our tax dollars..”

“You don't really understand the republican policies. I think they have good points and democrats do too. The reason you see that kind of talk is because democrat policies are sometimes opposite to republican policies. Obstructing an enlarged government is actually a good thing and I support them on doing that. It helps the country even if you don't really see it. But our bipartisan lack of compromise and lack of mechanisms to make the parties compromise is what has made our system a failure. So we need something like flipping a coin to end the debates. Government spending up or down? No compromise? Ok flip a coin. End of it. We raise or cut but we are not stuck anymore. We move forward.”
“Dig this.. See how the Republicans treat the people`s retirement savings account.(Social Security).Like paying the government`s bills,they don`t want to pay up...Republicans demand we create health savings accounts.. Is there anyone stupid enough to believe they will honor those bills. ..”
“Right...Freedom of Religion,should read,Freedom FROM religion..But they used the language as used in the 1700`s.. The Bible transcribed from Hebrew by Greeks,also leaves a lot to be desired.. Walk on water,no water walking,but walking along the shore..”
“Must be nice living in a Blue State like Massachusetts ..Look at their baseball and football teams... Number 1 in health care in the nation.. Number 1 in education.. It sucks living in a RED hell hole State,like OHIO..All they know is failure.. In Ohio it`s T-Party terrorism on steroids...They LUVS their failure..
We got and old timer from Boston,a transplant.. The "Bostonian",calls sports radio to rub it in..I` don`t blame him..”
“$100`s of million spent in propaganda lies by the T-party.. The Cleveland Clinic always lays off... Ohio has TORT reforms.. Malpractice is cut off in Ohio courts on the suits..
I`m on Medicare..my prescription cost went DOWN...Ohio has a $100 million + surplus for each of the 3 years of Obamacare... Medicare viability has been extended to 2014,says Congressional Budget Office..
Obamacare didn`t cut off anyone`s insurance.. Private companies did that..same as they do every year..Maybe some poor souls (saps) who bought junk policies will be paying more..I get that..BUT they will now have real insurance..”

“When asked by the NYTImes in a national poll, people responded this way:
72% of voters supported “a government administered insurance plan - something like Medicare for those under 65, that would compete for customers with private insurers." (NYTimes poll spring 2009)
From spring of 2009 to the passage of Heritage Foundation / Republican Governor Mitt Romney / Obama Care, Max Bauccus had police remove advocates for single payer universal health care from hearings so they could not give testimony and Obama sat on his hands and did nothing.
Lowering of the age of Medicare eligibility so everyone is eligible is exactly what people wanted and exactly what Obama and Bauccus and others in the Democratic "leadership" did not want.
Obama, Bauccus and the Democratic "leadership" sabotaged sixty years of Democratic domestic policy with crony capitalism and gave us instead a federal subsidy program for the private for-profit insurance industry. It is a disgrace to the party and an insult to Americans.”

“Ohio is a swing State.. We see 6 times MORE Conservative ads than Liberal ads during election season.. Conservative groups are running ads NOW.. They run 365 days a year here.. No election needed in their propaganda campaign..”
“I`m on Medicare..Because of the cost savings of my prescriptions,I don`t share your negativity.. My State of Ohio has had 100`s of millions in surplus since ACA..
Medicare`s viability was extended by 2 years,thanks t ACA.. . While some lament over the 3 million with scam policies,I see an opportunity to help these folks out..
My younger sister and brother will get health care with expanded Medicaid.. Like I said earlier.. I don`t share your negativity..I see the benefits,out weight negativity,by a lot.”
“Veterans Day is FRAUD DAY...Watching the clowns who pretend to support the military get face time on tv,the very next day these creeps go right back to betraying the military,both past and present..
