Are True Conservatives Ready to Leave the Republican Party?

I don't know who these conservatives are, but if they're not apart of the teaparty and are true conservatives, then maybe they should switch over to the Democratic Party, split from the Republican party or become Independent.

Conservatives from years past crossed over to vote with Democrats and Democrats did the same and voted with Republicans. They were friends, they socialized together, but today no Republican can fraternize with the enemy.

Before the teaparty, both parties voted for what was good for AMERICA. Today with the teaparty and Koch money in the races they DON'T care about America only their MONEY!!!

I hope these three dozen conservatives have had enough and leave the Republican party or start another Republican party.
The teaparty are crazies who have no business being in government.
Glad that some Republicans are coming to their senses!

Chicago's Calling!

Does anyone know if Bernie is coming to Chicago? Or Madison, Wisconsin?

I think that the main stream media only thinks Bernie is there to move Hillary to the left and he's not a challenge to her.
They've underestimated the American people, we're tired of two names for political parties, when they're really ONLY ONE party and that's the Corporation Party.

Hillary is going to be surprised when she's NOT nominated. I'd love to see a women president in my like time(ELIZABETH WARREN where are you?), but Hillary isn't it.

I'm tired of the media CHOOSING our candidates for us. They don't give air time, or interviews to those without name recognition or aren't super handsome. They dismiss them as not relevant and we're stuck with who they showcase. Dennis Kucinich would have been a good candidate, but got no coverage as a viable candidate.

This time around I don't think ramming Hillary down our throats will work.

It's Crossed My Mind!

It's crossed my mind too, is it blackmail or a threat to the president or his family?

The secret service has been extremely negligent in protecting Obama. It could be that those in power, let him know that they could pull a string anytime that want to and he and his family won't be protected.
Obama's appointments, positions on many policies are so different from candidate Obama. Could it be that this is really him and he pretended( lied to us) to be a progressive to get elected OR has he been threatened?
J. Edgar Hoover( the head of the FBI in the 1960's) had files on everyone in D.C.and did use the information to blackmail the politicians.
EVERYTIME I think it can't get any worse, he goes and appoints or nominates someone who has represented the industry they're going to be police now!!
Isn't this guy coming from Eric Holders old law firm, before he became attorney general??

It's About Time!

It's about time that the Democrats/Progressives stood up to all the corporate and Wall Street politicans and laid it on the line. These politicians were elected to REPRESENT US not the 1% and the next future job after Washington.
Keep it up Jim Dean and no back pedaling.

Climate Deniers!

I hope these Texans don't ask for Federal help! Aren't these people CLIMATE DENIERS?

I saw homes destroyed, road and bridges washed away, but I hope the Texas Representatives and Senators don't start asking for money to FUND INFRASTRUCTURE.

They've been refusing to fund money for infrastructure that America needs desperately, so now they've lost a bridge or two and they'll want a hand out from the rest of us.

These climate deniers should NOT get any Federal help or money!

Off With Their Heads!

These banks pleaded guilty, so why aren't there trials and people going to JAIL?

The CEO's or Presidents of these banks should be FIRED and held accountable for their employees who manipulated the currency markets. No bonuses, no stock options, and no golden parachutes!

Why aren't the guilty parties at ALL these banks being prosecuted?

These banks SHOULD be broken up!

Thank you Elizabeth Warren for standing up, asking the right questions and DEMANDING answers for the American people!

Fantastic Reporting!

When I was growing up we HAD investigative reporters! They broke stories all the time. Many of these stories took months to investigate. They were the fourth branch of government. People were arrested, and went to jail, because of these investigations.

We need MORE reporters like this one.
This T.V. Station did an excellent job of reporting and exposing these crooked politicians and showing how ALEX has taken over our legislators. ALEX writes most of the laws before the House and Senate, not just at the state level, but at the national level too!

Too bad this can't be done on the national level, holding our Senators and Representatives accountable. How about digging into the Koch brothers and exposing them for what they're doing! The Koch brothers are buying every election out there, from school boards, to judges, to Representatives, Senators and even the President of the U.S.!

Today's reporters have no idea how to investigate, all they do is tell us what celebrity is dating who. They've turned news programs into round the clock Inside Edition shows.
Hopefully, youtube may give this T.V. Station some publicity and journalists everywhere can see how they're suppose to do their job!
We can only hope!

My post was hidden!

I just posted today, and several people on a jury made the decision to hide my post. They said I was disruptive, rude, hurtful, insensitive, over the top and inappropriate. Did they actually read what I wrote?
I never swear, use rude words or attack people, but they for whatever reasons, decided my post was inappropriate.
I called Obama a traitor to the American people. Is that why I'm considered rude, disruptive???
I was even called a troll!
I voted for Obama both times, and I thought he would do great things for America. Yes, I consider him a traitor to our Democracy and to us the people, because he's not out there fighting for us!

One juror said that I was not disruptive, etc, but that the juror didn't like what I said.
I can understand someone being hidden if they swear, or say horrible things about people, but my post wasn't like that, in fact it had lots of information.

Non Traditional Medicine

Dr. Oz has a lot of advice that doesn't fit in with your standard conventional medical advice. I don't watch his show regularly, but when I do ,I try some of the foods he recommends.
I do not bother with buying any products he has on the show.

Who would be threatened by doctors like Dr. Oz? The AMA and the pharmaceutical companies.
If everyone started eating healthy, did more exercises, maybe their health would improve WITHOUT Pills!!!
If you use alternative medicine, then regular doctors would be left in the stone age, because their only cure is to prescribe a medication. How many doctors get a commission for every pill they prescribe?
Who paid for this study? We're finding out that more and more university departments and their professors are being paid by the pharmaceutical companies to write papers or to make speeches to other doctors.
Don't forget that the Koch brothers now make a donation to a university department, which entitles them to HIRE a professor who promotes their agenda.
46% of what he does is substantiated, some of the other advice hasn't gone through years of testing.
Dr. Oz promotes healthy foods, who cares about a test and whether it's substaniated.How can you go wrong eating more fruits and vegetables?

Is this the most important thing Congress has to do?

Let Them Secede Please!

These Republicans, Tea BAGGERS, Southerners, religious Right, the Koch brothers, and All the other billionaires who want to fund these Crazy Republicans this is their dream come true.
No government to tell them what to do!
Yes, PLEASE SECEDE, I can't take what you're doing to my country and our Democracy.
Go move and take a few states, live under a plutocracy, have as many guns that you want, grow all the GMO crops you can, just don't sell them to us!
Pollute your rivers ,streams, and air, don't have EPA regulations, or Food and Drug departments to regulate your environment, food and drugs.
We can slug it out at the United Nations, that's if you join.
No abortion clinics great, no unions great, no public schools great, no Social Security great, no Medicare great, no Medicaid great, continuous war great, no Obamacare great, privatize everything great, and pray all day anywhere great.
You now can have EVERYTHING you've been fighting the Progressive Democrats for the last 30 years or more!
