Yes, it has been verified. I'd wait for clear audio/video before really jumping on the bandwagon. But, saying Hail Obama is not funny in any way, shape or form. The fact that it would cross the mind of an American to say "Hail" to anybody is scary as hell.

Or maybe because there is no point in talking about particulars. Presidents don't write the laws (Constitution 101), Congress does. He'd have to take his proposals to Congress and see if he can get the votes. So why bother eeking out every last detail. You have a general plan, get to the plan and let's get a discussion/debate going in Congress and get something passed.
My mother told me Red Cross horror stories during WW2 - where people who didn't need the help, got plenty of it, leaving nothing for those who were really in need (my mother's family being one of them). I will never give to the Red Cross.

Biden: You'll Vote For Me in 2016

Exactly. That's what I've been saying for 4 years - it's the only reason Obama picked him.
I expected to see a /sarc tag after that. You must be off your meds (just like Biden). Biden was basically picked for the purpose of making sure Obama didn't get assassinated.

Individual freedom is important to both Libertarians and Conservatives. Libertarians are farthe right than Conservatives. I equate them with the anti-Federalists of our Founding era. They felt that the Constitution still gave the federal gov't too much power. The Federalists believed they had found a good compromise between federal power and state power. Both groups set out their arguments in the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers. Give them a read. Democrats - modern Democrats, that is - are Leftists who believe in a big centralized gov't telling everyone what to do (except in cases of abortion - although I think that if that became a problem for the State, they would reverse real quick and they would ban them).

Limited government means that the gov't does only what is necessary for a gov't to do. You can check out our Constitution, where the powers of the branches are laid out, especially the powers of Congress. These are called enumerated powers and they are the only things the gov't is permitted to do. That has changed, especially over the last 100 years when terms like "general welfare" and "interstate commerce" were bastardized for the benefit of giving more power to the government.

We already have "equality of opportunity". Anyone can do anything they put their minds to. If you are talking about people having a hard time setting up small businesses because of "big business" competition, then talk to the Progressives in both parties that think that gov'ts can pick winners and losers and get cozy with "big business". I'm an Independent Constitutional Conservatarian. I believe in the free market - that means NO ONE gets a special hand out - no business, no individual. LIMITED GOVERNMENT. Whether you are big or small, you stand or fall on your own merit. That is not what the Dems are about. Republicans are more so about that, but still infected with Progressivism.
