America is dead. RIP. Once a great nation and the envy of the world, America is a shell of its former self. All of Eastern Europe ran away from Communism only to have the USA run towards it. Ironic to say the least. It is as if the Cold War never happened.

AGITATED-U need to work on your "Index cards"!

Well, the Republicans caved and Barack Obama celebrated in Hawaii while planning his next step in creating an irreversible welfare state. Taxes will rise, spending will soar, and the media will cheer on Mr. Obama as he presses for even more as the debt ceiling deadline approaches.

Instead of giving into despair or anger, conservatives need to plan for the long haul. Tea Party people, Christian conservatives, national security conservatives and fiscal conservatives (there’s a lot of overlap here) are already working to establish an actually conservative Republican Congress in 2014.

It would be nice to have some conservative Democrats...
