Congressmen must answer to the voters in only two years. Therefore, we must tell them how we feel. I hope everybody here agrees we can not allow Obama to implement more of his agenda. Obama already has his tax increase on the "rich". ObamaCare taxes do that in the form of a 3.8% tax on dividends and capital gains for people with over $250,000 income. .... Obama intends to add more to that. Obama must be stopped, and the Republican Congressmen are our only hope. Please write to the Republican Congressman asking them not to cave in to Obama's pressure. They need lots of encouragement. It won't be easy for them.

Repubs who give into amnesty for illegal aliens will hurt the Republican party. I guarantee it.

You can't fix the brain dead that refuse to research the truth. Just find someone else and save it for the non-parasite class

Broad trends and the national political undertow can't be adequately captured in any single statistic -- but if Mitt Romney had managed to push the electorate in a handful of states a few clicks in his direction, he'd be the president-elect, rather than an also-ran.  Via Jim Geragthy:

Florida: 73,858

Ohio: 103,481

Virginia: 115,910

Colorado: 113,099

Those four states, with a collective margin of, 406,348 for Obama, add up to 69 electoral votes. Had Romney won 407,000 or so additional votes in the right proportion in those states, he would have 275...
