Right on...and Amen! Lord Acton said as much... "Power tends to corrupt and complete power corrupts completely"! Any 'Brat' or 'Suspended Adolescent' given money and power will destroy everything in his path for his short term pleasure. He doesn't have to be a 'Narcissist' to do this very successfully...but when the most powerful man in the world is ...he does...as "Our founding fathers weep..."!

What 2014 Means for 2016

R's did well in the last election only because Obama is so bad! If R leadership thinks this will carry over into 2016 they are wrong. Their action last night indicates they do believe this... and so we can kiss 2016...and every election thereafter... goodbye. Unless there is a 'palace coup within the R ranks...immediately! The only thing that can save this country from D leadership into perpetuity is principled...not RINO...R leadership! Unfortunately the RINO's control the R Party and so principled leadership will not be forthcoming. We will only get more 'Go along to get along' D lite action from the R's because 'their power' is more important to them than the 'American people' are. Folks I really hate to say this but...we are screwed. Unless...as I said...principled leadership comes forward and ousts the RINO's...immediately!

The Other America

Right you are KD...as well as Steven 668 just above. We are 'relatively' better off than a totally messed up rest of the world. But just imagine where we might be now if we had not gone down the 'Leftist Rabbit Hole with: W. Wilson, FDR, LBJ, etc for the last 120 years?! VDH is spot on and the US is doing OK 'in comparison only',... because the American Spirit...spoken of so eloquently by Ronald Reagan...has just not quite been snuffed out...yet. But count on the Marxists, Sociialists, Fascists now running the federal government, half the states and most large urban centers to continue their all out effort to destroy the American Dream...in the name of social justice, multi culturalism, sustainable development, etc I fear for our grandchildren and the world when this nation finally succumbs to it's 'death by a thousand cuts' if it doesn't wake up and smell the coffee soon!
