    If Democrats didn't have guns like James Holmes, then maybe we hard working honest law abiding Americans wouldn't need them for protection.

    Why does it make Democrats happy to hear about 26 people shot in Chicago over one weekend?
    If you have good in your heart then you have a moral obligation to vote Republican.
    The great society has been an affective counter to the civil rights legislation, as Democrats wanted and have created, more young black men go to jail then college. This will only end when the Democrat are voted out, wipe that blood off your hands and join with Americas best, vote Republican.

    The logo on Romney's plane should be "Believe in The Cayman Island".

    There will be minimal bounce from this boring propaganda-dropping elephants parade despite the Hollywood-style efforts to make a human being out of the Mittster. The man rings a false note every time he opens his mouth and everyone but the politically tone deaf can hear it. Furthermore, all the trickle-down arguments in the world don't make failed supply-side economics. valid. Corporations are sitting on huge amounts of cash which they invest in the stock market, and keep in foreign banks. More tax breaks for them will not help create jobs. In the same vain, the wealthiest one percent are off-shoring their money and hiding it in tax shelters. Giving them more tax breaks will also not create jobs. The greed-driven approach to taxation serves a very few selfish people at the expense of the long term needs of the country. Only the most cynical can press for continued tax cuts to the wealthiest. The core of the RomneyRyan promise to create jobs and reduce deficit is based on slashing taxes for the rich and destroying Social Security and Medicare as we know it. In short, Romney has not one single idea about how to accomplish his grandiose objectives. It is indeed smoke and mirrors and nothing more.

    Our original owners of the great land Us now live on reserves. Has Obama or Romney even visited these wonderful people?
