The only one Obama beat in the 2nd debate was Obama from the 1st debate. Romney beat Obama in just about everything, substance and style. Can't wait to see what Romney does to Obama next Monday.
I agree with your conclusion that there was no clear winner this time, as there was in the first debate. Brown definitely won that one. Warren is clearly far, far left and will rubber stamp any Obama directive. Brown is very careful not to tout his Republicanism because he currently has support from many Democrat leaders and does not want to spook the heavily Democrat voters. Still I think he can and will win.
I agree with you completely. It's really a sad day for America when we can no longer believe our own government institutions. The MSM is one thing, but one always hoped the government agencies were above partisan politics. This shows us how wrong we were to put faith in the bureaucracy.
Repealing Obamacare does not mean that it had absolutely no redeeming features. Romney has said that he would put into his plan that feature which would not disqualify people with previously existing conditions and maybe even allowing children to remain on their parents' plan up to a certain age, perhaps 26. But that does NOT mean that the remaining 2,000 + pages of Obamacare and the heavy burden it puts on our budget, our businesses and our health care providers is any good, or that Romney could not develop a better, less costly pan to the taxpayers and patients.

First of all, parents are not government. Secondly, they paid for his college up to a point and then he had to pay for the rest himself. Which is where his story actually begins. Needing people is not the same as needing government. None of us will say we do not need government at all, but when government begins to take over your daily life and make rules and regulations that cripple us or wants to take control over what you eat or what choices you have in your daily life, that fosters rebellion.

You miss the point entirely. No man is an island and we do not live in a vacuum. You assume that schools filled that vacuum for Mr. Adams. Mr. Adams gave that teacher a job by needing his/her services, and the taxpayers each contributed to that teacher's salary. This was government created by and paid for by local citizens, including his parents...and him when he was old enough to pay taxes. But the teacher did not make Mr. Adams study and learn..he did that on his own. Your mother gave you birth, but she did not create you without your father. None of this takes away from Mr. Adams own personal hard work and financial risk...or his ability to make it all work for him without payment from the government.

Of course you know that Obama would tell you that all those people who supported your efforts, though not necessarily financially, proves his point. However, not only would he denigrate and belittle your own efforts and financial risk, but he assumes that we all live in a vacuum and the only thing that could possibly fill that vacuum is government. You just proved that determination, hard work, financial risk as well as family and friends can all help, without government. Congratulations.
Of course, would you try to arrest your boss? This is exactly why a Special Prosecutor is needed for this.
