I hate to give Larry the bad news but voters aren't very smart. We have entered into an era of the most uniformed voters in history. Dumb would be the better word. They voted to go from a free society to a Communist one. How smart is that. As far as 2014 the Republicans have no chance whatsoever. They have now laid down their cards and have shown the public they are nothing more than arm of the Democrat party. If Rubio, Rand and the likes were smart they would form a conservative third party as fast as they could! Once a solid Conservative party comes on board it will be lights out for the Democrats also!

I agree and disagree with your post for all the reasons you cited. 'We have entered into an era of the most uniformed voters in history'.

Would the admittedly-dumb voters suddenly start paying attention to what's going on in the world? I doubt it. As long as they're getting all their perks, it doesn't make a bit of difference to them. It would be akin to biting the hand that feeds them to even CONSIDER voting for the better candidate.
Okay, it’s official. According to the Treasury Department, the U.S. debt jumped to $16.1 trillion in 2012 from $14.8 trillion in 2011. That’s a $1.3 trillion deficit for the last year. Remarkable. During President Obama’s first term, the federal debt rose by roughly $6 trillion.
 
Now, if they are bold, House Republicans will take advantage of these dismal numbers. Bold means bold spending cuts, as in cut spending like there’s no tomorrow. Bold means implementing the $1.2 trillion spending sequester. Bold means an absolute rock-solid commitment to spending cuts. A new Rasmussen survey shows that 62 percent of Americans favor across-the-board...
