    A revolution started with the election of Barack Obama, but the Republicans have succeeded in getting Massachusetts to do an about face and attack their friends.

    A successful democracy requires an informed electorate. Unfortunately, the media have chosen to give advertisers what they want – shallow sensationalism – at the expense of this great country.

    We are watching the demise of America at the hands of the greedy with the help of the uninformed.

    Sad, if the last year has proven anything it is that Obama doesn't know anyone with integrity. What we will get is some other socialist, union toad. When the president of this country has had more one on ones with the president of the SEIU than the minority leader of the Senate, it is a sad commentary on the state of this country.

    Sen. Jim Webb is a very smart man suggesting that healthcare reform voting is suspended until Brown is seated. A great political trap for Republicans ahead and the future of the Republican party will go down in flames.

    Mr. Paul needs to go back to his District and do the job he is getting paid to do. Anyone who votes for Paul, other than for Congressman, is waisting their vote.

    It's nice to see constructive criticism against both parties when you aren't in charge. Congressman Paul, what would you do to create more jobs? More tax cuts? Did that work last time? What is your plan to fix healthcare? Everyone is criticizing the current Healthcare plan, but there is no alternative that has been put up by the GOP. Nothing but rhetoric from the other side. This country want's healthcare reform as evident in Obama winning by a huge landslide, so lets hear from the people what they want to see in HC reform.

    Thank-you CNN for giving the voice of reason. The voice for the return of personel liberty a chance to be heard. Ron Paul is giving this country a road map to return to it's greatness. He is neither extreme left nor extreme right, but he is using the Constition as his measure of what is right for this nation to remain a Republic and a free nation.

    Ron Paul is one of the few true conservatives still out there. The rest are neo-conservatives i.e. racists, religious bigots, sexists, homophobics, and mouthpieces of Corporate America.

    Paul is great, Brown completely unhinges the liberal agenda, liberals continue to make plans to overrun the desires of the people of this country and CNN leads off with a Palin story. Unbelieveable. Fire away at Palin libs, keep firing and not paying attention.

    Yeah, lets run over here and listen to this guy. Maybe we can just keep ignoring reality. Anyway, keep treating us like mushrooms and maybe you will still figure out how to rob the Medicare coffers.

    I`m ready to give him a serious look. I`ve seen all I need to see of both parties. I`m almost to the point I`d vote for anyone that wasn`t either Rep or Demo.----– And I realize that in itself is dangerous.
