Big myth...big business is affiliated with the GOP. They are affiliated with whatever party is in power. They usually contribute to both parties to hedge their bets so the corporate welfare will keep coming regardless of who wins. For every Haliburton out there loving on the GOP, there is a GE loving on the Dems. That will never change until you get eliminate all corporate welfare and all corporate taxes.
I watched it. The first two people did expouse racist views, without a doubt. They were also about 80 years old and come from a different era that has long since faded away. Actually, they actually represented a minority of even the group that was interviewed. However, you take those two comments and state they represent the face of the GOP. Do you realize how dangerous that is and how easily it can be turned against the Democrats. I have yet to see comments like this on the comments section of this site either. If you want to see the cause of the divisiveness in this country or why we can't have an intellectual conversation about real problems in this country, go look in the mirror.
Money was not the issue. The other candidates in the field were very weak overall. Romney won this by default. He would have won with a shoestring budget. Romney could have had twice the money he had and he would have gotten waxed if a true conservative had been in the race. Unfortunately, there was no such candidate this time around. Our goal needs to be continuing to place conservatives in the State Houses and Governor mansions throughout this country. We continue to do this and there will come a time when they will make the changes occur that get us back to our Constitutional principles. Until that occurs, we are wasting our time thinking Washington insiders (GOP or DEM) will fix our problems. They are incapable of doing so.
Mitt will be a good Republican President unless he loses the House in the mid-term election. If he does that, watch him run to the middle and do all he can to compromise with Democrats in the name of bipartisanship. The conservatives in the House and Senate will be locked out of the process while Mitt, the Rinos and the Dems work to make government "more efficient". The media and the independents will love it while while the government will continue to take more control over our lives and fall further into debt. The Dems will feign love for him until the next election cycle and then hang him with his own rope when the economy doesn't improve as expected (aka Bush 41).

Should Fat People Pay More For Insurance?

These comments are hilarious and sad at the same time. It is really nobody's business whether someone is fat or not. The carrot for a healthy lifestyle is usually a long, healthy life. The stick for an unhealthy lifestyle is usually either an early death or a miserable prolonged life due to poor health. I really hope this article is tongue in cheek.
