USA Today/Gallup Poll Shows Democrats Midterm Election Hopes Dim

September 7, 2010 by  

USA Today/Gallup Poll Shows Democrats Midterm Election Hopes DimWith the mid-term election season getting into full swing following the Labor Day holiday, a USA Today/Gallup poll reveals that Democrat hopes of holding onto both houses of Congress are dimming.

The poll showed that voter dissatisfaction with the party in power is greater than it was in 1994 and 2006 when the party in power — Democrat in 1994 and Republican in 2006 — was swept away in a tsunami of voter backlash.

On the question: “Suppose that after the November elections most of the present members of Congress are replaced with new members. Would it change Congress for better or worse?,” 75 percent of those polled said it would change for the better, USA Today reports. Only 14 percent believed it would change for the worse.

While that would seem to be good news for Republicans, the poll shows that nearly half of those supporting Republican candidates are doing so out of a desire to defeat the Democrats rather than in support of the Republican. By a margin of 2-1 those polled who said they will vote for a Republican indicate they would rather vote for someone other than their current GOP member of Congress, USA Today reported.

“It’s good news for Republicans winning elections in the fall, but it may sow divisions for governing in January,” Lawrence Jacobs, director of the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance at the University of Minnesota told the news source. “It’s a mandate for change from the Democrats but not a mandate for Tea Party policies” that may divide the GOP later.

    I don’t have a George Soros budget, or I’d do my best to buy America a round at the nearest bar(s). If Dems are having problems with voter confidence, that sure is a galloping, first-class case of BFD.
    As for the Republicans, they’re still wallowing in a dream land of their own making and are in dire need of a sledgehammer between their twisted eyes.
    Do your thing, America, while you can. You may never get another chance to show people like The Anointed One or Motormouth Joe what you really think of them, their jock strap supporters or their THUG, criminal administration.

    • STEVEN MORRISON

      WRONG. The criminal administration left office in January 2009 after starting

      two illegal wars with billions unaccountable

      and

      a huge deficit with a country on the verge of another great Depression

      and it is criminal that the Obama administration has not held war crimes trials for those felons!

      • TwinSmoke

        This is the kind of left wing talking points that are going to cost the Democrats in November. This is absolutely ridiculous. Those wars had to happen. When Clinton was in office, our embassies were bombed in Kenya and Tanzania, The WTC was bombed the first time and our USS Cole was bombed. And it was done by the exact organization that hit us on 09/11. What did Clinton do about it? Absolutely nothing. It’s the reason 09/11 happened in the first place. Even Albert Einstien said “without war, there will never be peace”. And ROFL! Please don’t bring up the economy which you obviously have no clue about. Bush spent 787 billion dollars at the END of his second term. Obama has spent 3 trillion in a single year. For the record, that’s more than all of our former presidents combined have ever spent. You will NEVER improve the economy by spending an atrocious amount of money. Obama keeps talking about it being the “previous administrations fault”. Even JFK said that a US president should NEVER blame anything on another administration. JFK was a smart man. Obama is by far the most obsurd person we’ve ever had in office at any given time.

          Well actually Democrats, who just happened to be in control of Congress, spent 787+ billion and Bush (the RINO) let them. Democrats spent 3+ trillion in the first year of the Obama Administration with Obama cheering them along. Why not? After all the American people had just handed them filibuster proof control of the Senate and they still had full control of the House and now the Presidency.

          They are Democrats. They have no patience. They could not help themselves. They just HAD to spend.

          And Obama let them. Even cheering them on.

          • TwinSmoke

            Amen Vicki. Are you single? LOL, kidding. It just amuses me how the liberal party loyal don’t care WHAT happens in our world so long as someone with absolutely no morals is running it. And by the way, the 3 trillion dollars was BEFORE he signed in his 2.6 trillion dollar insane healthcare bill. He is about to spend an additional 100 billion dollars on another stimulus package. Yeah right. We see how well the last one did. We’d all be better off if Usama Bin Laden was rinning our country. Atleast HE stands by his word. You know, in August, our unemployment rate jumped from 9.5% to 9.6% and 2 weeks ago, we lost another 500,000 jobs. When is this insanity ever going to end? I don’t know if I can wait til January of next year for the newly elected Republican congress to get into office. Good God.

        And around and around we go on the hamster wheel again…

    It is time to vote in as many new people in Congress as possible as we need to get back to a true representation of the people of this country.
    It was oh so very obvious that these past 2 years that especially the Democrats showed total disdain for the will of the people that they were supposed to represent. I am picking on the Democrats BECAUSE they also showed total disdain for anything the Republicans had to say as well. The Republicans were ignored and laughed at by Obama as well as their fellow Congress men and women.
    I also remember knowing that throughout the years Republicans have been guilty of not representing their constituents either.
    Right now however, we are sending a message to all of Congress and we want it to be LOUD AND CLEAR that they are supposed to represent us, not dictate to us.

    • STEVEN MORRISON

      Jana, were you even thinking when you made your post? New people who have no clue as to what is going on? Like Joe Miller in Alaska? WRONG.

          well done!

      • Kinetic1

        Steven,
        Jana is not alone. I took a look at this poll and 63% of Republicans polled wanted a candidate who had not previously served in the house or senate. Only 32% want incumbents. On the other side Dems want incumbents (59%) as opposed to new blood (28%). In the past this sort of division has lead the split party down the road to defeat, no matter how enthused their voters were.

        Of course these polls tell all sorts of stories right up until the election, and often they’re dead wrong, so let’s just wait and see what comes.

      • vicki

        A trained monkey could better represent us then our current (“We have to pass the bill so you can see what is in it”-Pelosi) Congress.

        Is it really too much to ask that they actually READ the bills they plan on passing?

        So steven why dont you enlighten us on what we dont know!

  • Jim H.

    If we get a big batch of NEW congressmen and senators it would be good that they realize why they got there(total disregard for the Will of the people by their predecessor)and through their term remember that. After a while many who start out doing good, get complacent and/or corrupted by the Washington political culture. They need to remember how they got there.

    • vicki

      That’s our job. Vote them out the moment they act against the Constitution.

      Note I said the Constitution, not the will of the people. Following the will of the people is in essence a democracy which of course is 1 wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

    • dan az

      yea Jim H like janet no pal otono which turn her back on her state in a split second the rug burns on her knees must be healed by now.

  • Dan1967

    In 2008, when Bush was our President, our country lost almost 2 million jobs. Bush squandered Clintons surplus, and turned it into record setting budget and trade deficits. Our country this past August 2010 gained 67,000 private sector jobs, and the job losses have stopped. Are the Republicans going to try to repeal the health care bill if they gain control of congress and deny insurance coverage to children with pre-existing health conditions?

    Anyone with even a little common sense knows that you can’t get our country out of the worst economic recession since the great depression without pumping money into our economy. President Obama signed the strongest financial reform bill in our nations history that will protect people from fraud. The health care bill he signed helps people, and his Democrat nominated U.S. Supreme Court Judges rule on the side of individual freedom, as opposed to the rights of the State. A State is a form of government.

    The Democrats are the party of individual freedom, not the Republicans.

    VOTE DEMOCRAT IN NOVEMBER

    • Robin from Arcadia, IN

      Dan1967… 1967, was that the year were born or graduated? You can’t be serious? You really think our economy is in better shape now than when President Bush was in office? I am not saying that the corruption doesn’t run deep and in both parties, but Barry lies and lies and lies some more. He promised that pork barrel spending and pork added laws would not happen during his tenure. He promised health reform, but as we are finding out, at what expense. Propping up failing companies may seem noble in your eyes, but how much has it really helped. If you want to live in a socialist country, they are out there, not here. Take your pick…

      • STEVEN MORRISON

        THE ECONOMY is improving, there has been eight months of steady job growth. Agreed, it is not enough, but do you realize how deep the hole was that Bush left us? At least President Obama is not digging the hole deeper as clueless George Bush did. Thanks to the President jobs at GM and Chrysler were saved, financial reform and healthcare reform are realities. Now we need energy reform.

        • (WIA) Wild Indian in Action

          SM, 9.6 unemployment (in reality it’s 21.7) and the economy is improving, get off the funny stuff you smoke.

          • momof4

            W.I.A. You are so right. i really think Stevie is on something!! The guy’s just not right!!!

        • Nathan

          I live in a town that once had a giant GM plant. BECAUSE the government bought out GM, they closed the branch’s doors (firing thousands of people in the process). In the past, RCA was here in the 80′s and 90′s until Clinton’s administration signed a bill supporting overseas investing/support for businesses, which helped close RCA’s doors here in the mid-90′s (another job that took away thousands of job for my city). My city was once known for its vast array of factory jobs. Now, there’s just two places left: Otis Elevators and Cook Pharmaceuticals. Are you saying you want the government to get involved with these P-R-I-V-A-T-E-L-Y owned companies too, so they can “consolidate and reorganize,” in other words: tear down the old, traditional system of privately owned companies that run on profit and consumer spending and build a government-owned business that doesn’t care about the people and is only doing the bare minimum to survive? I’m most certainly sure that my town isn’t the only one in the States like this. Is that what you want our country to turn into? If you wanted to live in a country where everything (healthcare, businesses, transportation, media, etc.) is run by the government, then you should have concidered a communist country because, frankly, I can’t stand for it any longer. This has always been a free country and it will remain so as long as I got the right to say something about it (unless the government then controls that too)….

        • JC

          Morrison that is absolute garbage. We’re circling the bowl ol boy!
          Wake up….

        • vicki

          Steven you should probably go find some facts to backup your statements. Just for fun I did it for you this time.
          http://www.miseryindex.us/urbymonth.asp

          Looking at this chart we find that for the last 8 months (Dec 2009-Jul 2010) I can not find evidence of your claimed steady job growth. Of course these are just seasonally adjusted unemployment figures and do not account for folk entering/leaving the market nor is it a count of actual available jobs but it does tell a frightening tale of the economy.

          Dec 10% down to 9.7 for a bit then up to 9.9 then down to 9.5

          So for your class project go out and find a source to support your claimed “8 months of steady job growth” and that should be for the US not the world or some other country.

          In the real world where peoples lifes are on the line there is no change and things are not getting better in any way shape or form.

          But according to the bent media who are not presenting “FAIR nor REAL intel” everything is getting better.
          Well then explain how thats true when the facts are that over 25,000 people per month are loosing their homes, Lossing their jobs?
          Why 85% of the people invested in Stocks have lost 55% of their money?
          Why new business are don’t exist?
          Why no one will invest in anything?
          Why per day 2000 business are folding?

          That should keep you busy for a while if you have any real answers.

            If you don’t have an honest opinion that isn’t a complete word-for-word quote from the Democrats or Obama administration, “then you must be playing with your own ding-a-ling!” I may support Republicans, but I at least have my own ideas and opinions about things (I don’t copy and paste their words into my brain if you know what I mean). I’m not saying it’s wrong to be Democrat and it’s right to be Republican. What I’m saying is that you need to develop your own opinion and decide which ideal best suites your opinions.

      You have to be kidding! When your house is in a financial crisis, do you spend more money to get out of it? If you do, then I fear you are the one lacking in common sense.

      Keynesian economics fails every time it is attempted. Do some reading and educate yourself. Read about Austrian economics. Read ‘The Creature from Jekyll Island’. You will learn that small government and fiscal restraint are the keys to prosperity and freedom.

      • Kinetic1

        You can’t compare national fiscal policy to a household budget. At home you have only two options, increase your income (a 2nd job or a raise) or cut spending. There’s no option or need to concern yourself with job creation, production, domestic product etc. If all our government did was cut some taxes and cut spending, they might improve the government’s bottom line, but the economy would still be suffering. In fact, with the possible reductions in welfare programs, those without jobs would become more of a burden on our hospitals, schools, charities, etc. We live in a cyclical system. Production needs to get back on track so that companies will hire again. Once hired, people will begin spending again, increasing the need for production, thus increasing the need for workers, etc. etc. Now, if we can just stop the government’s incentives for businesses to move production off shore.

        • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan Halbert

          Hmmm…a household budget doesn’t apply to government? Kinietc, I hope you’ll come to understand that’s one of the reasons 75% of American people want their representatives removed.

          • Warrior

            Is the majority of cases it doesn’t apply because you can’t vote yourself a raise at home. Only if you’re self employed or better yet a congresscreature.

          s m you’ve been in to much cool ade as i didn’t start any war, bush was president when the iraq as for help or don’t you remeber that part

        • Nathan

          Your kidding right? America didn’t go in first and blow up Mecca or blow up an enduring symbol of Iraq’s or Afghanistan’s country, therefore making an entire country outraged. I also don’t recall Iraq or Afghanistan giving us any alternative. Bush tried talking with these countries and having treaties set in place, but NO, they wanted to be against us. If you’re not going to be for us then you’re either our enemy or you don’t care. I’m 110% sure that neither Iraq nor Afghanistan wanted to co-operate and at least be civil with us. So, we did what you’re supposed to do in a situation like that- we went to war. If weren’t going to make an initiative to fight for our freedoms, the extremists were just going to keep pushing us around until we would eventually be destroyed-that was their plan all along. Now, it seems like everyone’s complaining because what was once a response to an act of war has become a Vietnam-like situation where we are trying to change the mindset of other countries. I agree, we should just leave well alone now, but we did go into these countries for a legitimate reason and we remained there with good intentions. If you don’t agree, why don’t you tell that to those who fought for this country in the past and died for it. They’d most likely tell you they knew what they were getting into and they did it anyway, because they love their country enough to fight to keep it’s freedoms alive. Wake up and smell the coffee! If you don’t think this country’s freedoms are worth it, then leave!

          Dear Mr. Morrison, Perhaps it has been to long since you studied the U.S. Constitution. Article I, Section 8, paragraph 11,”To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;” This is in the section that enumerates the powers of CONGRESS! The President does not have the power to declare war. Congress only has 17 enumerated powers. To be factual Alquida declared war on us years before they MURDERED American citizens on American soil. Therefore any war against Alquida was at there own choosing. CONGRESS declared war acording to our Constitutional process, therefore these wars WERE NOT ILLEGAL OR ILLEGITIMATE.

        Clinton had moved us towards a modern tech based system. Drones make a lot more sense than people in the new world. Bush only needed to rebuild because 1) he intended to start a new war and 2) Cheany’s Haliburton buddies wanted more contracts. Bush waisted Trillions on no bid contracts and replacing soldiers with mercenaries and what good did it do?

        • vicki

          Clinton replaced solders with drones and Bush replaced solders with drones. Why are you complaining about Bush again?

          • Kinetic1

            The drones Clinton used were controlled by our military and did only what they were instructed to do. Bush’s “drones” are a bunch of mercenaries run amuck. My complaint against Bush/Chaney is that they spent billions of our tax dollars on overpriced private killers, cooks and construction workers when our military has done just fine without them in the past. Before Bush’s private army stepped in, had you ever heard about a military shower electrocuting our soldiers? No? Well that’s the kind of quality we got from privatizing our military!

      Anyone who thinks jobs increase in the private sector has increased works at Walmart in China. And if you believe the President and the Democrats have stopped a sure double dip recession with their funding austerity needs to get off that shit their sticking up their nose. We are broke as a country and our economy is in the tank because of the legislation in the past four years, that’s right its Bush’s fault too, but Obama and his merry band of Chicago thugs have managed to stay the course toward bankrupting our nation despite his campaign promise for change. Because of the deceiver-in-chief this country continues to borrow money from the Chinese in three years we won’t even be able to pay the debt let alone the principal. Over 60% of our country has been nationalized by Obama and the Democrats who are in lockstep with Pelosi and Reid and the govt is growing steadily bigger while the private sector is actually losing jobs according to the Rasmussen and Pew nationally respected polls. I am a disabled Vet who spent 29 years in the military to protect the constitution and the law of the land so my children and grandchildren could experience the freedom and opportunity to live a life in the greatest nation on earth. The least I would expect from my countrymen is that they stay educated, honest and proactive to make sure that these corrupt do nothing Congress people and the Commies in the Whitehouse don’t infringe upon our rights as citizens and human beings who are accountable only to God. If you will do the research to find out how corrupt the Whitehouse and Congress really is you will be in for a shock. Start with doing a search on the internet and investigate the involvement of key figures in the GREEN SWINDLE and what the Socialist Democratic Party really has planned for the future of America. If that doesn’t bring you and the rest of the disallusioned back to reality, I will guarantee you will be living in a shithole like Mexico in less than ten years. When the middle class and rich are drained of resources the entitlements will stop, because they are the ones paying 95% of the income tax, they are the ones who are creating jobs, they are the ones who are the heart and soul of a free market system which we as a nation has prospered for decades. People open a business and create jobs which creates wealth for the nation and the individual who risks his or her money to make money. The rich were poor like you and I, but they had the brass to operate a business, why would we want to penalize anyone who is successful as a business person and take away their profit. The whole idea of free market is to make money, not to spread the wealth by discouraging the private sector business people. Taxes, Obamacare and deficit are the job killers right now and no amount of spending will create jobs long term. Its like the new tax on medical wheel chairs and othotics for crippled people that just kicked in, who do you think really pays the tax, the store owner has to pass the tax on as a product price increase to stay in business, how does that help the disabled who are already living on a meager fixed income or bring revenu to the U.S. Treasury to prevent a larger deficit. If you ever wanted to do something great for your country please do not vote for the Democratic machine that has been in power in Congress for four years and has decimated the country under the guidance of Speaker Nancy Pelosi who believes it is more important to pander to LARAZA and the illegal Mexicans for the votes, so she can maintain her power and control which she has used in a way that most economists would say is criminal. She has stopped more good legislation and pushed more bad legislation than anyone in the history of the House of Representatives. Your enemy is Obama, Pelosi and Reid and their followers, not your countrymen who want a decent job and a decent life. The Conservatives are not perfect and they have some housekeeping to do, but our best chance lies with the conservatives in the Republican party. Your choice is simple in Nov 2010 and 2012, you will either vote for the Democrats who will continue to spend money we don’t have and tax everyone in spite of the deceptive claims of no tax for people making under 200,000, or you can vote for a Republican conservative who has signed up to abide by the contract from America which outlines a promise by each candidate to stop all this spending insanity and reduce govt and the expensive oversight along with reducing or eliminating tax. The most important fact with the Conservatives is the fact that they understand that they work for us and will listen to WE THE PEOPLE. Trying getting Pelosi and the democrats to agree to the contract from America. I rest my case.

        The $50 billion plan our President has announced is far too small. It is a step in the right direction. We need a massive jobs bill. We lost billions in Iraq, why can’t we invest billions in our country? The time has come for some massive job programs.

        • Maggie

          The government cannot create private sector jobs!!! Businesses create them. The government interference in the creation of jobs slows down (or stops) the process. Get the government out of the way and let the consumers decide what to purchase and from whom, and then see how businesses will prosper or fail.

      NO…… There was no surplus

      Record setting deficits (under Dem Congress… you know… the bill payers).. at least until the current administration.

      They’d better repeal Gov-care. Already been cited by the architects. Your precious children WILL be among the first to be axed because… “We’re just not getting enough of a return on them”.

      Anyone with any common sense knows to GET GOVERNMENT OUT OF THE WAY to expand business and subsequently the WORKFORCE. Know why companies are getting “leaner and meaner”? It aint corporate greed… it’s government greed demanding their pound of flesh for doing ABLOLUTELY NOTHING to create, facilitate, or innovate except lining thier own pockets.

      I wish federalism still ment something but, just for “spits and giggles” we’ll stipulate… you’re correct. The three most “under-water states in the union?? Those bastions of right-wing hate, living off the poor, theocratic nightmare, pamper the rich idea tanks… Massachusettes, New York, and California. The whole country needs to be just like these guys???

      Finally, and probably most important, the individual and their rights is the furthest thing from progressive-Marxist Democrats as you can get. You’re not a party, but an amalgamation of the blacks, the browns, the gays, the greens, the girls (the ugly ones anyway), the unions, and a bunch of others that’ll take up too much space (left-handed midget transvestite red-headed Koreans). It’s ALWAYS about the group (not the individual) and when two groups don’t see eye-to-eye??? the one with fewer members (aka vote buyees) will get thrown under the bus so fast it’ll give you whiplash.

      Dan 1967,
      There never was a surplus after Clinton. He took the money that still had to be paid out to social security and entered it as a surplus. The only problem with that is, you can’t spend the same dollar in two places at the same time.It doesn’t work that way! There was actually a small deficit and the market was alreadt indicating a stagnation that would soon be a downturn! The way he cut the budget was to cut services to veterans and disabled vets at that. He also cut the defense budget to the point we couldn’t have actually defended ourselves against a determined foe here if they had good weapons! A very dangerous thing to do, indeed!

    • DaveH

      Dan said “Anyone with even a little common sense knows that you can’t get our country out of the worst economic recession since the great depression without pumping money into our economy”.
      It amazes me that you would assign lacking common sense to anybody who disagreed with your faulty premise. If Government spending was the answer, there would be no poor countries. Any Ignorant Leader can spend more money.
      Throwing good money after bad does not solve problems. It worsens them. Now on top of our other problems, we have an increased Government debt to deal with.
      When you run out of money in your household, Dan, is your solution to spend more money? If you couldn’t live decently without going into debt, how are you going to live decently later when you have the added burden of servicing your debt?
      If you want to waste your money, Dan, be my guest. But don’t waste my money.

        Interesting. At least when Bush was on vacation he was visiting schools and entertaining the children. Oh and he did do something. He kept the info quiet so as to not cause concern to the children. He then went back to Washington and in less than 24 hrs had a speech and plan and implemented it.

          And even when Pres. Bush was back at his home in Crawford, or, anywhere else, he was not incommunicado. He was President even if he was on vacation, unlike this bummer we have who is trying to act like a President. It takes him days to come out and say something about major incidents that have happened. We find out later that they told him about the problem, but he was too busy playing games to respond. He is always too little too late. He is just inadequate for the job.

    America will never recover until we bring back the manufacturing jobs. Adding service related jobs won’t improve the economy in the long term. Also, without a strong manufacturing base we won’t be able to defend ourselves when the next major war begins. We were able to impact the outcome of the second world war because of our industial might. That is no longer the case. Asia is now the industrial powerhouse in the world. We’ve educated their engineers and their business people and made it possible for Amrican corporations to move out of the country. Our schools no longer educate our kids, they indoctorinate them and we are paying them to fail. The welfare state has made it possible for people to go from cradle to the grave without ever working and providing for themselves. If we don’t change this culural shift back to self resposibility and reliance we will never recover our industrial might.

      You’re absolutely right. That’s why I think something like term limits is critical. Republican ’94 is a good example… a LOT of those elected ran on self-imposed term limits and kept their promise. The remainder (you know who they are) are in somebodys’ pocket and have no problem with Progressive-lite policy. I doubt it would completely eliminate the graft, cronyism, or corruption but it’d make the puppet-masters job 10 times harder and that’s gotta be a good thing!!

    There is no fix for Stupid! Obama and his Czars are either economically illiterate, or they are deliberately destroying what made this country great the “individual entrepreneurial spirit”. Anyone who believes that “collectivism, socialism is a winner is just plain Stupid!

    Capitalism depends upon two processes:
    1) production of goods and services and 2) consumption of goods and services. Of the two the ability to consume is by far the most important. When the population can buy businesses either go under or go to other promising markets.

    Government has absolutely zero ability to create wealth. Their only tool is confiscation.

    The real challenge we face now is how to create a bold and lasting consumer base.

    JOBs will no longer be the wealth creator that it was once promoted to be. The fact is that JOBs were never the producer of wealth. Ownership of a business that used the efforts of others to create leverage was and will always be the secret to creating wealth. The 40/40/40 plan created through negotiations between labor and management was a brilliant compromise by management. It captured the efforts of others to create wealth for the owners. The fact is it paid just enough to make it from paycheck to paycheck for well over 80% of the “worker” population. The typical laborer has been priced out of the world labor market. High production companies are moving off short as quickly as they can make arrangements to relocate.

    Automation and robotics can outwork any laborer any day of the week. Neither requires vacations, overtime, or health and retirement benefits. Wake up America. We need a new way for the every day family man and woman to earn a respectful income without being a slave to either labor or management.

    As Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more powerful than knowledge when contemplating the unknown”; i.e. the future.

    Good alternatives are available. However, don’t expect the political elite to discover them or promote them. Anything they can’t control is of no interest to them. Do you know that 99% of the money in the USA is controlled by less than 1% of the people? True!

    We The People must come together and use our common interests and skills to produce income opportunities that are simple, ethical, legal, inclusive, 95% automated and sustainable. Time is of the essence.

    When 51% of the public discovers that they can vote their own interests, “entitlements” this glorious country, our beloved United States of America, will forever change and not for the better. Ben Franklin warned us of this potential in 1776.

    I have worked out a solution that will put an income of $8,400 per month in anyone’s bank account within four months of initiating a specific home business. It uses leverage at the power of seven, uses the pay it forward strategy to create high momentum and contemplates a 95% automated website to manage the process. And, it only costs $70 to initiate the home business. From day one there is a zero negative cash flow; positive cash flow from day one. Starts low and builds fast.

    Wake Up America! Otherwise we will be a third world country within the next generation. Current government spending is absolutely unsustainable! Taxation has consumed and doomed itself as a viable means of supporting growing government consumption.

    Think about it; a entitlement established by law, is by definition a legal minimum. That is exactly why the “new health services bill” will be an absolute failure. Who will be satisfied with minimum health services? No one! Those who experience it, mostly the elderly, will feel that their government has lied to them, forsaken them, and discarded them as useless lives. They will be accurate but too late.

The general welfare clause does not give the Congress or the President carte blanc to decide what the general welfare is. The powers granted to Congress number 17. The powers of the President are dependent on the advice and consent of Congress. All the powers given to the Congress and the President are granted to them by “WE THE PEOPLE”.

      You must be smoking something very strange and strong to be talking that crap to a buch of patriots! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • patrick

    OK we will fight fire with fire! So here is the plan: Obammy boy and his crew of crooked czars have been throwing money at the Unions and trying to pass laws favoring Unions and their Gov’t jobs, so we the people have to do what they would do when they don’t get their little spoiled ways: we will go on STRIKE against any and all liberal democratic laws, bills, orders etc. etc. We the People will go on strike against Obammy boy and the Unions! YES we will win. Go conservative, christians, repubs!!!

    Steve,
    None of the presidents or politicians have ever done anything to improve the economy. All they have done is impede the ability of the free market in order to enrich themselves.

    • Jana

      MikeN,
      And they haven’t really tried to work on the economy. All they have done is make things worse, as they wanted to push through their agendas first. They think the answer is to throw their paper money at everything and tax and tax and tax some more. If he was truly worried about the economy he would not have stunted our growth in the ways he has ie: the ban on drilling in the gulf, and the fear of taxes being raised on businesses, the health care debacle which is going to cost way too much. This man Obama is a plague. And what is this that he keeps saying?? Uhhhhh so far all of his implementations are already paid for? What a joke. Even children can see through that one.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    Speaking of the midterm elections, guess who is campaigning for Democraps!! Bill Jefferson (B.J.) Clinton. He sounds like BHO!! In the NY Daily News (9/4/2010) we read of BJ’s lies at a campaign rally in Staten Island. BJ accuses the GOP of turning “….his budget surplus into the biggest deficit in history.” NONSENSE!! 1st, the surplus came after the GOP took over Congress, at which time BJ had to move center to right so he could get re-elected in 1996. 2nd, Bush’s largest deficit came after democraps took back Congress in 2006. And in BHO’s first year, that deficit was nearly quadrupled to the biggest in history!! BJ also says we should give democraps a chance to fix the mess made by Bush and the GOP. LOL!! We know the reverse is true!! It was the democraps who turned a normal cyclical recession into a disaster!! Had the (stupid and unforgiving) voters given the GOP another chance in 2006 and 2008, the recession and high unemployment rates would be gone by now!!!!!

      Yea but the unions may be broke.

      • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan Halbert

        It’s amazing to me that union members will put up with the financial corruption inherent in unions, and keep paying for it. Hard to let go of the entitlement mentality. Worse than heroin or alcohol.

        • Warrior

          That’s why the majority are democrats, that’s acceptable behavior to them.

        Warrior,
        I’m not so sure that the unions going broke would be a bad thing! They are one of the biggest causes of California’s monstrous deficit!!

  • Warrior

    In the spirit of the upcoming NFL Season I joined a Fantasy Politicians League and here’s my lineup.

    QB -

    • Warrior

      Oops – when I started to put in my lineup my computer crashed. No reflection on my lineup I’m sure.

      QB – Queen Nan – After watching her handle that gavel who wouldn’t want her handling the ball.

      RB – Joey Biden – Always gets the handoff

      RB – Charlie Rangel – Can juke you out of your shoes

      WR – Big “O” – doesn’t have good hands but is the fastest in the league, makes a great diversion

      WR – Wiener – Wears out defenders with his mouth although has a hard time finding his way back to the huddle

      K – Maxine Waters – Sometimes gets foot caught in mouth but has a powerful followthrough

      TE – Chuck Schumer – Doesn’t really run or catch well but blocks like the dickens for his team

      DEF – Bawney Frank – He just plays a monster game. Can’t ever catch him with his pants down. The only reason he doesn’t play offense is because nothing sticks to him including the ball.

    Everytime a marxist communist democrats opens their mouth on needing jobs, well if USA would start tapping in to the almpst 3 trillion barrels of crude, now instead of playing with their ding-a-lings in the beltway and sewage pit full of agency smucks.. At the same time start ground work on new refineries, and finish the 1978 refinery that has been sitting for decades. The nuts and berry burrheads theorizing on green weinery energy is killing us, and especially the cap and trade. We sould tell the rag heads and the muslim scum goat rangers to go suck a sand dune. After Jan.1 we will see how high taxes will climb, and how many vactions the marxist muslim moron and his Big Mammee can cost tax payers at least $500,000 – !1,000,000 + a trip. Everytime someone says vote Libertation, means they wanty to keep dems in power and hope they don’t beleive that crap.

  • ONTIME

    Even though the prospect of seeng the Deemers and the RINO’s get their ever loving butts thouroughly stomped by the dissatisfaction welling in the voting ranks, it is up to you the voter to impress that electee to “remember who brung them to the dance” and just how quickly they to can feel this wrath brewing in the voting public.

    We will not soon forget that being elected will no longer entitle a electee to spending the rest of their adult life leeching off the public trough or abusing the office they represent. Many of us want to vote in legislation to insure that this incumbency no longer involves a lazy good for nothing dud that got rich off special interest and feels they are annointed and elite.

    RE-PARE AMERICA’S GOVENRNMENT…Stop the leeches and insects from feasting on your carcass.

  • Claire

    I have a question–Obama apparently wants to pass legislation to help small businesses–and the Republicans won’t go along with it. Why???
    And didn’t the Republicans vote no to additional military spending? Am I correct or wrong on this?

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Claire,
      heck out and see how much PORK is attached to both bills. Also don’t forget that the dems were the ones that voted in a bill that said you couldn’t pass new spending unless you CUT spending elsewhere!!

      • Claire

        JoeH–Pork–yes you are correct. That is what happened to every bill that has been passed for the last 30-40 years. Laden with pork. Every politician puts in their pork. They want it for themselves and the state they represent. They do this so they will get re-elected. I think they should pass something for the small businesses. They can cut back on something else! For example, their wonderful pensions, their health care plans, their raises, their limos, their free rides to and from foreign countries. Let them pay their own way. They should live like the average American especially since none of them are earning their salaries.

        • dan az

          Claire
          I agree and if the banks would loan to the small business then they would gladly expand their employment and shares in the market place.
          but it seems like every bank is to preoccupied with making profit off of the ponzi scheams that they have with the feds rather than improving the economy.Seems to me that there is a law that prohibits that but I could be wrong.

          • Claire

            dan az — I know a couple that have their own business (14 years) and banks here in town will not give them a loan, and they have always had a “brisk” business. They will no doubt let some of their employees go and it does not look good for them. I do not understand it. It makes me wonder if banks are “in cahoots” and want these small businesses to fail. My son refinanced his home at a low interest rate (3.75) for 15 years. Apparently the banks here like to refinance homes but they balk at giving loans to the small business owner, but it appears they will assist the wealthy person. The banks that were bailed out post a profit and it seems like they are doing nothing but contributing towards their own personal gain. I still think the salaries the CEOs make is shameful. Greed, nothing but greed. I tell you one thing–I would never have bailed out these big banks.

          • dan az

            Claire
            I have a friend that had this business that was appraised at 5.5 million and when he went to the banks they would not loan him 50 thousand so the next year he lost his business and about 8 employees if you look around here half of the business have failed and the rest are on their way out.I know this is going to sound racist but it is the truth a banker said that he was the wrong color.

          • Claire

            dan az–I know exactly what you mean–the right color–the banks don’t seem to want to help the small business owners. It seems the big banks that took a bailout are not helping the little guy, only the rich ones. At least it appears this way here in my town.

  • http://gmail i41

    The crap idea of small businesses get help is just that. The finincial reform bill has so much paper work in it, if I spent $650 I have to report with paper, instead of writing and paying a bill for parts at the end of the month or week, there is just more paper work. I can not tell what the hell costs for insurance, health insurance, rate of taxation just to mention a few. That is something every numskulled democrat cann’t talk about, everytime there has been a down turn in the economy, more people start small individual businesses. Socialist democrats beleive in their hearts that everyone should either work for the government, or some mindless corporation of the National Socialist Democrat Union Party campaign fund. The more our marxist muslim moron mule keeps whining and vacationing, the more stupid the idoits that voted for him look!

    OBAMA HAS STIMULATED JOBS–ESPECIALLY IN THE CORRUPT WEARTHERIZATION PROGRAM.. THE HUSBAND OF ONE OF HIS CABINET MEMBERS HAS A FACTORY THAT WILL SUPPLY THE WINDOWS IN CHICAGO. THIS PROGRAM PROVIDES NEW INSULATED WINDOWS, NEW ENERGY STAR REFRIGERATORS, NEW FURNACES AND AIRCONDITIONING.. THESE ITEMS ARE BEING PLACED GRATIS–FREE INTO 40 TO 50 YEAR OLD TRAILERS.. EVEN TENANTS LIVING IN THESE OLD TRAILERS CAN GET THESE FREEBIES.. MANY OF THOSE RECEIVING THESE FREEBIES HAVE NEVER WORKED,PAY NO TAXES AND HAVE NO INTENTION OF EVER PAYING TAXES.. THESE TAXPAYER GIFTS HAVE A VALUE GREATER THAN THE VALUE OF THEIR OLD DECREPIT TRAILERS.. I DO WONDER HOW THE WALLS OF THESE OLD TRAILERS EVEN SUPPORT THE WEIGHT OF THESE NEW EXPENSIVE INSULATED WINDOWS.. THE BIGGEST SUPPORT IN THESE OLD DECREPIT TRAILERS IS A 2 IN. X 2 IN. BEAM. IS THAT NOT BUYING VOTES? I SHOULD THINK THAT EVERY HARD WORKING, TAXPAYING CITIZEN SHOULD PICK UP THEIR PITCHFORKS AND TORCHES AND DESCEND ON THE DEN OF THIEVES ON CAPITAL HILL. THIS IS ALL BEING GIVEN WITH BORROWED DOLLARS

    • Jana

      libra,
      You are right, I saw the ceremony he was presiding over as he handed them a huge copy of the check.
      Talk about the good ole boy system and Chicago style gangsters taking care of their own.
