Every once in a while I'll hop across the aisle and see what's going on in Leftopian media. This segment with Ed Schultz and Van Jones just claimed 6 minutes and 20 seconds of time I will never get back. Proceed with caution if you hit play.

The words that come out of our president's mouth are nothing less than shocking and he is only going to turn the voltage up as we get closer to the election. 111 days away. The lunatics are running the asylum and we haven't seen anything yet.

This is one comparison I like to make regarding a hardcore Obama-backer and a resolute anybody-but-Obama voter: If a group of fundamental conservatives were ever to suggest that extreme liberals ought to just take a portion of this country, pick whatever conglomeration of states you would like, and go execute your political beliefs free of Republican restraint and independent of influencing those Republicans---they would be up in arms and calling Republicans every name in the book---accusing them of everything in their playbooks.

However, if a group of fundamental liberals were ever to suggest that extreme conservatives ought to just take a portion of this country, pick whatever conglomeration of states you would like, and go execute your political beliefs free of Progressive restraint and independent of influencing those liberals---I think they would smile and simply say "okay".

Barack Obama has this nation divided right down the middle. I would call him a success for achieving that. But that is clearly no way to run a country or to lead a nation into its future. This idea of socialism or communism, or whatever -ism you want to use, is a recurring theme in human history all over the world. It sucks people in like a vacuum but it just doesn't work---and the people who perpetuate it are either bent on the destruction of America or they are insane. Insanity is often defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. For generations we have been fighting communism and sacrificing American lives to ensure it does not spread. We have now come full circle. Our president has brought the enemy onto our own soil and propagandized it in such a way that nearly half of this nation believes it, utterly disregarding everything America was intended to be. For me, the saddest part of this all is the fact that Barack Obama's solutions have been proven historical failures and they have failed even during his own term, yet the ideas he expresses behind his podium are accepted by so many as answers. It is going to be difficult to get out of the mess we are in, but an internal alarm should ring in every American's heart and head when they hear their president asserting that tax increases, wealth redistribution, stimulus packages, and the printing of Monopoly money from the Federal Reserve are the answers to our problems. Our government wasting less time and money is the answer to our problems.

You could give this president every tax hike he desired. He would waste it and America would be worse off. He could apply all of it to our national debt and it would not even make a dent. That is something the news doesn't mention. Most of the information and the issues we hear about and see on the news is absolutely futile. Do we raise the debt ceiling or don't we? Do we increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans or don't we? Do we nationalize the health care industry or don't we? It's all distractions. From what, I don't know. But our president does. You can take all of the major issues surrounding this upcoming presidential election, roll them up into a big ball, and place them next to our national debt and they would not even tip the scale. Yet, the news provided to us rarely ever mentions, except in passing, how devastating this one particular catastrophe is. What else is there to even talk about if the American economy sinks like the Titanic?
