It's amazing how the 1/3 apportionment holds up. During the American Revolution... 1/3 were liberals who joined and fought for revolution... 1/3 were "independents" and 1/3 were conservatives who didn't want anything to change and aided the British. Here we are today and the same holds up. 1/3 of conservatives can't stand change... 1/3 don't give a hoot... and 1/3 are liberals. Weird ain't it?

What's weird is your strange take on American history.

Try reading the real story of the American Revolution and who supported what.

Then get back to us.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, then-Illinois Senator Barack Obama promised to slow “the rise of the oceans” and “heal” the planet if elected President of the United States. And of course, when he was elected -- as far as I can tell -- none of that actually happened. But it’s worth pointing out that in early 2009 he made another, perhaps more realistic promise to the American public: overseeing an open and transparent administration:

“Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of my presidency.”

So, five years...
