I think you are way off!

 

Country founded by Geniuses, but run by Master Minds!

 

They are not idiots, they know the agenda and whom benefits, and it sure is not you nor I.

 

It is all about the debt, the money system. In short USURY.

 

It is not until you comprehend the evil trick that USURY is, that you will see who benefits by all you have listed.

 

CUI BONO? Follow the Money if you can.

Sorry to see you have such a low opinion of the very government that makes your business possible. Sorry too to see that you are nearly as clueless as you claim the government to be. You are wrong on so many fronts but your bigotry and "independent streak" prevents you from seeing how many of the points you complain about came about due to abuses foisted upon innocent, independent and honest citizens. But just for a few,

 

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

You have to get caught before you can be arrested or ticketed for hunting or fishing without a license. If you are here illegally and get caught you likely will get tossed from this country. The common thread between the two? You have to get caught. And I know in your blind hatred of that "uppity black man in the WHITE House" you won't acknowledge this, but two facts come to mind on the illegal immigration issue: 1)this administration has deported more illegal immigrants in its first 4 years than baby bush did in 8. 2) If the "nasty, oppressive" government cracked down on employers hiring illegal immigrants then there would be little demand and the supply would dry up. But that would require intrusive burdensome regulations and cost businesses more money (in higher wages for documented workers).

 

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

I don't have to fly on an airplane. I don't have to show my driver license to cash a check, I simply have to supply my account number. But a bank account is also not absolutely nevcessary. By my age I don't ever have to show my ID. If I have to present it, they always scan it anyway, and on top of that, it is not my civic duty to drink beer. My library uses my driver license as my library card, but my 11 year old son has a library card and can check out a book anytime he wants. Do you think he has an ID or a driver licence? My video store asks for my phone number and my password, no license, no ID. If you were honest you would admit that the only reason why the voter ID laws are being pushed is for voter suppression. Pennsylvani admitted there was no reason for them to be pushing their ID law, they admitted there was not problem the law was intending to fix. The Republican Lawyer's Association did a study of voter fraud cases and found 400 nationwide over a 10 year period. That is less than one per year per state. And that was the republicans' own organization that could not find evidence to support the party's whims and whines. "But a fraudulent vote dilutes the legitimate votes" they say while ignoring the very fact that the voter suppression dilutes the legitimate vote far more. Thousands upon thousands being denied the right to vote because they don't have the necessary paperwork, and no a state issued driver license is not always accepted as proper ID in order to stop less than one fraudulent vote per year per state. Shameful, just shameful.

 

Yep, if the republicans get control of the country again you will be right, it will be run by idiots. Dishonest, crooked, self-interested idiots. And like HarrytheCarGeek wrote, "Follow the Money if you can." Both parties are guilty. Both parties are beholden to the big donors. And the republican (IN)Justices on the Supreme Circus guaranteed us a contiuance of that by granting corporations and wealthy citizens (and non-citizens too thought 501 ©(4) anonymous groups) more equal speech. Sadly that level of speech isn't "free" so not everyone has the same abilty to speak. Both parties pander to their donors, and don't think those "anonymous' donors" are really anonymous to the candidates) it's just one throws a bone to The People once in awhile. The other bones The People every chance it gets in favor of the rich and powerful, of which I would suppose you are not. One of the 1% perhaps, but I don't imagine you are part of the the party privileged. And I think you have been around too long to be one of their pay-per-trolls.

Trusted Mechanic....first of all I dont think you know me well enough to call me a bigot,and I take offence in that. But if that is your opinion you are welcome to it. I can and have proved that for the time Mr. Obama has been in office I have taken a hit in my business. I dont blame this on his color but his politics. I dont believe any of the programs instituted in the last 4-5 years have really benefited the small businessman. And I do believe that if you will go back thru HISTORY you will find that during republican held White House and congress small business flourishes. I have no problem paying my fair share but lets make it a FAIR SHARE. You do understand that there are more people receiving govt benies now than pay into the federal tax system. this inequity can not continue!

As far as follow the money...you guys need to find a hobby!

 

And for the record you can shove your bigot remarks! The longer I think about it How dare you call me a bigot....you dont know me. But that seems to be the norm today, call names before you really know the person! I dont give a flyin flip what color a person is. Some of my best friend are of african descent. So to that end I hope you will consider your words more carefully the next time. Otherwise you can cram it!

Common sense tells me that whomever is responsible these things do not make sense and should not be so. If common sense makes me a bigot then I am a bigot. It is AMUSING how one side accuses the other of the very things they are demonstrating in their response.
