And we are treating these guys like common street criminals and trying them in civil courts, instead of in military tribunals, so a judge can dismiss hundreds of the over 200 criminal charges and in the end only one charge is upheld against an Al Qaeda fighter captured in Afghanistan:  http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/al-qaeda-promises-us-death-thousand-cuts/story?id=12204726

Democrat controlled FCC moves to institute control of the internet.  Purpose?  To silence opposing political opinion:  http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/technology/130197-fcc-may-regulate-internet-lines-days-before-christmas

Rachel Maddow is a liberal reporter-columnist on MSNBC is is frequently touted by liberals as a political genius.  Errr, excuse, but in a recent show of hers she said things that make it look like she cannot add or subtract, and sometimes has problems understanding the written word:  http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jack-coleman/2010/11/20/maddow-economics-tax-cuts-tax-rates-whats-difference

Earmarks must go.  It's true that they account for only a small percentage of the federal budget, but that's not why they must be outlawed.  They allow for the hiding of bogus and questionable projects being funded by hiding them with more important and popular legislation:  http://www.burtfolsom.com/?p=940

How much do you and every member of your family owe on the national debt?





Seems like the Obama Administration doesn't agree with Lincoln.
Rather, they seem to have adopted the philosophy of:

OF THE GOVERNMENT
BY THE GOVERNMENT
FOR THE GOVERNMENT

RIGHT?




Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
