Thoughts, a total waste of time & monies. Republicans are nothing but a bunch of rich *bleep* selfish only for the rich crowd. When they're not dumping on US President, their dumping on each other. Reminds me of a bunch of trapped rats clawing each other to get out. You can tell the voters are so not impress with this group they're voting the last minute. I hope the votes will be so divided that when the final  results come out there'll  be a 3 or 4 way time. So nobody get's Rep. President nominee! HaaaaHaaaaaHaaaaahaaaaa!!!! :bootyshake:

We almost lost our tax cut before x-mas ended. The President keep them from leaving 4vacation until there was an agreement in favor of middle class. I recall a majority of the republicans stead fast on letting the threat of the higher tax bomb drop on the middle class! They (Reps) would rather have us suffer increase taxes from our paychecks than give us 2 months. I'm happy to have a small increase in my pay check, the letter R in republican will be eased from my vocabulary! Why would they care for us middle to poor class citizens, most of them are billionaires, why do you think they don't want to increase the tax rate for the rich? All I can say is I'll vote due to action & not words. I fear that if we do get a Republican into the White House then, I believe that the Doomsday prediction of Dec. 2012 will happen! Just look at the history of all the Republican presidents in the past. If nothing else, their actions & deeds done in the past is prob. the chain reaction that will lead this world into the end of times 2012! Think about it! :heart: :peace:

Oh my aren't you the brainwashed one.  If you think like you do, with the level of fear you have, then you are already a slave to the democratic party and nothing I could say would change that as you would have to make the realization on your own.  Don't get me wrong there are also slaves to the republican party as well who need to wake up.  I just really can only shake my head and wonder if you rely on people explaining to you what is going on or if you have ever actually investigated things on your own.  Do not be a puppet for other people.  Think for yourself and live for yourself for a change.
There are only 10 types of people in the world:  those who understand binary, and those who don't.

The Iowa caucuses are pretty meaningless in the scheme of things really. MSM has had almost 24/7 coverage of this political season and I for one am burned out with it. I simply can't consider any one of the candidates seriously as presidential quality. Money has taken over politics with PACs etc and that is just totally wrong. And to think there are months of it ahead.
If people would take time to get their news from other sources--Al Jazeera english , Mosaic or Democracy Now on LinkTV, they would be surprised to know there really is a world out there and things are happening that affect us all. But perhaps that is the point after all......

I'm glad that  Michelle Bachman has dropped from the race.  Like some candidates are such jokes and they eventually drop like Bachman and Herman Cain.

I was sad to see how easily the Media pumped up Santorum into a virtual tie for first after polling at the bottom forever. It's staggering to see easily people are manipulated. I wish that Ron Paul had finished higher in the popular vote, but it's all about delegates and the top 3 wound up tied with 7 apiece.

In the end, I don't think Santorum is going anywhere and it's going to come down to Romney vs Paul
