    You are right on point. Well said!
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    All I am saying is give it time. Bad Cat is right Bush was a savior his first few months and years. Let the dust settle before we cown him king.

    On the blanket statement you made about socialism and fear mongering you expressed a extremist conservative bend regarding President Obama.

    Odd that you would use kool-aid drinking... as a metaphor. That of course would refer to Jim Jones and the massacre of his religious followers. By far most religious zealots are conservative in nature. That may lead some to think you might be a religious nut job. (Symbolically speaking of course.)

    You claim to be a independent but so far I have only seen you express conservative viewpoints. Care to enlighten me on what views on what issues would place you as a independent?
    I don't have the energy, or time at the moment, to get into my political positions. If you read post#4 in this thread, you'll see that I clearly pass blame around evenly. The mess we're in comes from both sides of the isle and it makes me sick to think of all the lemmings who follow a certain political party blindly because they're told to do so. It doesn't matter if it's a liberal being spoonfed by MSNBC or some dolt who gobbles up Hannity or Rush.

    If you don't believe Obama and Geitner aren't gearing the government toward a socialist style of government, then you need to wake up. Bush started it...Obama is joyfully pushing the throttle harder.

    I'm not going to tell you OBama's numbers are going to fall to 20%, but using the figures at this point doesn't really tell us anything. He hasn't really had the opportunity to do anything, and he's still in the anti-Bush glow. If he does a good job, I'd still expect his numbers will be somewhere in the low 50's, high 40's.

    The economy is blurring the view right now. Wait till it clears and you find yourself living in a socialist system. Lots of back door moves toward socialism are transpiring. Gonna look very European real soon.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Let's see, we currently have nationalized education, transportation, law enforcement, national defense, fire fighting, recreation, etc. all of which have been around for decades, but if someone suggests adding healthcare to that list all of a sudden we're turning into a socialist society?

    I think you hit the nail on the head with this post.
