All my people were Democrats and so was I until Jimmy Carter. That is when I registered as non-partisan. I then registered as Republican for a number of years and now am happy to be Independent. If I thought Jimmy Carter gave good reason to leave the Democrat party, then it would be doubly so now with the current head of the Democrat party. Democrats, if you care at all about America's God-fearing, law abiding, hard working, honest folks out here, you had better start doing something about your CEO ! Otherwise, those same people may retire you next time around. If you have a conscience at all, you need to show it !!

When Bush the 2nd passed the expanded Medicare mess and refused to fight to win for many years, I switched to Independent and thats where I am today. These Repubs are pandering fools who have placed a Panicked HOPE over experience and will likely lose many of us in the futile and misguided notion that 3 rd world people will vote for them.

Continuing on the "5" theme, here's a must-include UPDATE from the WSJ:

Tamerlan Tsarnaev is the fifth person since 9/11 who has participated in terror attacks after questioning by the FBI [emphasis added]. He was preceded by Nidal Hasan; drone casualty Anwar al Awlaki; Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad (born Carlos Leon Bledsoe), who murdered an Army recruit in Little Rock in June 2009; and David Coleman Headley, who provided intelligence to the perpetrators of the Mumbai massacre in 2008. That doesn't count Abdulmutallab, who was the subject of warnings to the CIA that he was...
