No, I don't like Pelosi and Reid, but I also won't support Boehner's and McConnell's position of corruption and crony capitalism. By voting for them, we're not only saying that we approve of their corruption, but that we support it! If a GOP candidate pledges that he will vote against Boehner or McConnell, I'll consider supporting him/her, based on a bunch of other litmus tests. Otherwise, I'll vote Libertarian as an effort to build/bolster the growth of small national government, federalism, free markets, and individual freedom and responsibility.
My point exactly, Jason. What they've given us is corruption and crony capitalism. It's not about what's right for the country. It's about what will put the most money in our campaign funds and PACs so that we can spend that money flying around the country playing golf and sleeping in expensive resorts with every big ticket campaign donor. We complain about the lack of leadership from Obozo, but what leadership have we seen from Boehner and McConnell?
Any party that would elect John Boehner as it's speaker and Mitch McConnell as it's leader doesn't deserve my vote.
Scotland is strongly liberal. Of the 59 MPs from Scotland in Commons, only one is a Conservative. All the rest are Labour, Liberal Democrats, or Green. The Scots view David Cameron and the English conservatives with disdain, and the spending of Scottish oil proceeds on defense as thievery. Every time Cameron campaigns in Scotland for unity, a few more independents turn toward independence. Loss of Scotland will help insure Conservative dominance in Commons. Now if we could just get California and New England to vote to secede.
It speaks volumes about the people of San Francisco that they keep electing someone like this as their representative.
What scares me is that 32% of people still think he's doing a good job. That means that 32% of are population are ignorant, socialists, or racial sycophants. Putting that aside, it seems to me that when two of your enemies are attacking one another, the best option is to stand back and let them decimate one another, and then if necessary, destroy what's left. Alternatively, we might want to defend Iraq and their fledgling government and leave Syria alone to fight it out.
Any party that elects John Boehner as their speaker doesn't deserve my vote.
That's just what we need, more RINOs!

The parallels between the world today and 1914 and 1935 are actually quite scary.

Mike, If I were king, I'd launch a campaign of containment on ISIS and Assad. Let the two of them fight it out (hell, I'd give them both small arms to use on the other), but prevent the spread of Islamic extremism outside of Iraq and Syria. When they've decimated each other, then I'd step in an squash whatever is left.

"leadership"? Obama has no concept of what leadership is or means. If he was leading us in the wrong direction, at least it would be leadership. He's simply retired to the golf course and is letting the nation (and the world) flounder.
