1. What a sleeze bag of shit.
NEVER does he answer the questions put to him...but he expresses some vague bull shit idea that he has about "bailing out the auto industry, the banks, health care.." etc. What a total loser and ass hole.

So let me get this straight mr cantor.....you think we should have let the auto industry go belly up? You think President Obama should have STOPPED the appropriations that dubya and his administration initiated to stop the economic meltdown that YOU and your reagan mentality morons started??

God, this prick is such a loser.

And LEARN TO TIE A TIE! What kind of tie knot is that? Did you learn that all by yourself? I'm sure "the pencil look" is coming in.....in the deep south hills perhaps.

2. Hey Eric, why aren't you condemning your own party for the Obama/Hitler comparison?
Until you do that you can just STFU.

4. Eric Cantor you big douche bag
Free market capitalism is what caused the government to bail out Wall Street.
By the way, you're a self loathing Jew who should have your foreskin reattached with rusty staples. The people of your district are getting what they deserve.

6. "A balanced, fair outcome"
In other words, no health care reform whatsoever.

7. My head almost spun around
on my neck...bailouts? Government intrusion? RIGHT OF INDIVIDUALS? Is he speaking of the Bush years or of Obama... :sarcasm:

I am trying to fight the good fight amongst the people I know to engage them in some semblence of productive and meaningful dialogue about the state of our country. I am growing weary. Very weary.

8. Teabaggers are "protesting" democracy and its outcomes. They fear democracy.

9. Exqueeze me?
America was founded on free-market principles? Really? And what re-written history book is this guy reading out of? America was founded on religious freedoms first and foremost and yet people seem to feel free to criticize others based on their religion (or lack therof)... The next major foundational act was our Independence from Great Britain which won general freedoms (NOT free-market principles...) as well as the right to DEMOCRATICALLY make our own decisions and govern ourselves.

There seems to be this major push to say that America is based off capitalistic ideals...
I would argue that America is based of Democratic ideals... a socialistic and capitalistic balance was what our Founding Fathers envisioned, so that we could be a country of growth and profits as well as a Nation that would take care of its downtrodden.

I'm sick of the "Culture of me" and wasn't to see more of the Culture of We!
