when Obama caused the murders of 4 patriotic Americans he should have been impeached, but Obama will not be impeached, being he's a democRAT.

He is not going unimpeached because he is a Democrat. He is going unimpeached because the establishment Democrats and Republicans alike are big-government statists. They SPEAK differently to their hornswoggled constituencies, but they both ACT in largely the same ways, in support of neverending war for PRIVATE gain using PUBLIC money.

As much as Democrat and Republican pols dislike each other, they are rivals for the same throne. Neither wishes to expose the truth about relationships with dictators and abuse of our noble soldiers for missions other than actual defense of the American People. Benghazi won't go unpunished because of bias toward Democrats. It will go unpunished due common interest of the two party establishments.

The two parties fight each other for control of the throne. But they want that control so that THEY have the power of our military and our government and of the purse, so they can enrich themselves and their cronies at the expense of the people. They are fighting each other to get control of the serfs. The last thing they want to do is let the serfs know what is really happening, because the serfs would end it and there would be no spoils for the victor.

Truly getting to the bottom of Benghazi would require spilling the beans about what was really taking place there. Neither side wants that. The GOP saw a chance to make hay by catching the Administration in a VERY REAL cover-up. But the GOP establishment hacks couldn't, it turns out, manage to expose that cover-up without blowing the lid off the whole business: what we are really doing there. Which would undermine THEIR crooked interests just like the Democrats.

So, in businesslike fashion, they've largely abandoned the subject. They took a stab to make the Dems look bad (which they should), but didn't get much traction beyond their own base.

Had they exposed the big picture, the Democratic voters would have been outraged too.

But again, that would mean blowing up the gravy train for BOTH parties. So, like so many lawyers, neither wins outright, but both still do quite well splitting up the spoils and bankrupting their clients.

The United States, from day one, was a project about principles and ideals.

The super power that emerged and grew from the handful of colonists that began settling here was not the product of where those colonists happened to land, but the ideals and principles in their head and heart – applied in how they lived their lives.

The Republican Party was founded in 1854 to address one great blot on the nation’s founding legacy – the existence of slavery in a nation founded under the ideal of freedom under God.

Runaway slave and self-educated abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass said “I...
