    • On January 22, 2012, by MTeinert - It's About time someone in congress is fighting back against Obama's tyrannical fleet of cowardly crooks. The only objective of these aristocrats, is to rape and pillage the world blind. While at the same time you liberals and so called conservatives cheer, "Praise Lord Obama. Please just bypass congress and rule over us," or praise romney, gingrich, or santorum,etc. Licking the boots of these sock puppets while they line you all up to be indefinitely detained. I thought America was home of the free, land of the brave. Now its, Land of the fee home of the slave.

    • On January 23, 2012, by kir - Paul has consistently made attempts to protect American citizens and others as well from the tyranny of massive federal government. However he has been less than effective because of the amount of authoritarians entranced in both parties. It's amazing. He constantly does everything he can to help us, yet the American population seems unwilling to elect him into a position where he could really make a difference. How does that make sense?

    • On February 16, 2012, by billydon81702 - The Buck Stops Where? I am writing this as a 2010 mid-term mandate beneficiary, elated that our Republican Congress voted against raising another $1.2 trillion debt ceiling increase but offended that is subsequently passed the Senate by 8 votes. In January 2012, the US national debt surpassed our GNP for the first time ever! After 3 years of massive spending, unemployment and skyrocketing cost-of-living, what is it going to take to avoid financial Armageddon by the conclusion of 2012? (continued)
