Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their fellow travelers in the Democrat Party exist only because of "Low Information" voters. We need voter ID a whole lot less than we need voter IQ testing. Obama's 2nd term is the result of stupid people voting, nothing more.

Stupid people voting multiple times, and dead people voting, and people voting for Romney, but votes being recorded for Obama.

Will never happen. Faux Noise educates, every day, and is treated with hostility and contempt and called a bunch of liars. Amazing to watch and very very sad.
Liberalism, Fabian Socialism, Marxism and many other isms are just sects of the same Religion, and that is why the followers are unreachable. Reminds me of the fools in Jonestown, in one of the Guianas.
You could not have gotten them to listen to reason, either.
Speak reason and they call names or get up and leave.

Amid all the political and media hoopla about the "fiscal cliff" crisis, there are a few facts that are worth noting.

First of all, despite all the melodrama about raising taxes on "the rich," even if that is done it will scarcely make a dent in the government's financial problems. Raising the tax rates on everybody in the top two percent will not get enough additional tax revenue to run the government for ten days.

And what will the government do to pay for the other 355 days in the year?

All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting "the rich" to pay...
