    Or you can cry yourself to sleep in one of the concentration camps Obama is building.

    To those above who think prayer is the answer, let me give you a newsflash. Prayer is something you do to make you feel better when you are actually doing nothing. Prayer is not going to save our nation, only real action is going to do that. Pray all you want, but you are going to have to get involved and actually do something if you don't want this country to turn into another Nazi Germany.

    Perhaps Abraham Lincoln stated it best. "We, the people are the rightful masters of both the congress and the courts- not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution." In my opinion this statement defines the current political situation in which we, the people find ourselves today.

    I have felt that way for the soon to be past 4 years. Obama totally disregards the Constitution on many issues. Even Pelosi was caught stating "what Constitution" when she was being interviewed regarding the health care mess.

    Obama regards the Constitution as something to "get around" rather than a restraint on his power. He would burn it given half a chance.

    The tax payers makes the money that keeps the crooked government going. We elect the ones that goes to DC or to the each state capital. Not saying we do a good job at it, but the people own the government not the other way. Now I do realize Obama wants to make you think he owns you, but he doesn't

    Those of you that say no are living in a fantasy world. How can we "own" a government who can now imprison us for life without even filing formal charges or allow us to speak with counsel?

    Since 9/11, we have allowed our government to take away every single right that we ever had in the name of "National Security". It is impossible to do anything without permission and paying some sort of tax for the "privilege". The Government has done a brilliant job of making us their slaves while the average citizen still believes they are free. Free? Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    The ultimate test of freedom? Try to denounce your citizenship and move to another country. You will find that you must pay an "exit" tax of 50% of your net worth, whether it is liquid or not. The government owns your ass from cradle to grave, even if you decide to go live somewhere else. They even force every bank in the world be their spies and tax collectors now.

    None are so enslaved as those who believe they are free.

    If you still think that you have any rights left, you haven't read the so called "Patriot Act", NDAA 2012, and a few hundred executive orders. If you read them, you will find that our government can do anything it damn well pleases with no concern whatsoever for the Constitution or our supposed "rights". Be prepared, it takes several days to just get through the Patriot Act. It is quite chilling to read, to say the least. If you still think you have any rights after reading that, Google "Japanese Americans, 1942". If you still think there are limits on what your government can and will do, you desperately need to take a reading comprehension course.

    And yes, your government owns you and will take by force whatever part of your earnings and property they see fit. If you resist, they will put you in jail, or worse. Compliance is mandatory, regardless of whether what they are doing is Constitutional or not. So what is your definition of being owned? What can you do without permission and/or paying a tax for? You need to think about that a bit before you answer. It has been estimated that every adult in America commits at least 3 felonies every day without even knowing it. The Federal Government alone added over 88,000 new laws just last year. There is no one in this Country that k...

    You are right about those with money being the real rulers. The politicians we vote for are nothing more than puppets. The real power brokers are the bankers. In 1913, we turned over control of this country to the bankers when the so called Federal Reserve was established. Since then, a private enterprise that won't even reveal who the members are, can create money out of thin air and then loan it to our government or anyone else with interest. If that is not the ultimate in power, I don't know what is.

    There are two ways to sleep well at night:

    1. Be prepared

    or

    2. Be ignorant.

    How far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?

    Most of the people of America have not got a clue just how much BO wants to change this country. Even when his faithful are confronted with stone cold facts, they still defend him. Hitler had that kind of following too, at least until the people finally woke up to what he really was. Of course, by that time, millions had died and it was too late to reverse history.

    If BO is re-elected, and I believe that he will, (regardless of the actual vote count) history is going to tell a very sad story of America and just how easily her people were fooled.

    Destroying the republic is what this charade of electing Obama is all about in the first place. He was hand picked to do exactly that.

    Consider this. If the Republicans really wanted to beat him, don't you think they could have come up with candidates who were not as easy to target as Romney and Ryan? I mean, get real! A super rich white guy who actually invented the original Obama Care and has never taken a hard position in his life, and the guy who they can say wants to end Medicare and Social Security and effectively throw grandma under the train? Really? That's the best the party can do?

    If you don't think the elections are rigged, you need look no farther than Ron Paul's campaign this year. He was drawing thousands of people to his rallies every day while his opponents were drawing dozens. In every State primary, he would jump out to early leads but as the day wore on, he fell farther and farther behind. Surprisingly (sic) he wound up with 10-12% of the vote every time. Chance? Not hardly. Now that he is out of the race, his followers are like a snake with it's head cut off. The Revolution is over before it began. The establishment won, no surprise there. Romney was picked as the nominee before the first vote was cast in New Hampshire.

    Super rich? He's very rich but he earned his wealth on his own through hard work, education and making the right decisions. That should be an example that everyone wants to emulate, not someone to demean. Also, he initiated ObamaCare at the State level which is Constitutional but not at the Federal Level. Ryan doesn't want to throw anyone under the train. He has a plan to improve Medicare and Social security should indeed be privatized. Now, I'm not a big fan of the Romney/ Ryan ticket but it's much better then mealy mouth John McCain. I would like to see a Libertarian elected but it's not going to happen so the best we can do is the lesser of the two evils. This would not be the situation if our ancestors would have stayed with the original plan as outlined by the Founding Fathers.

    I hear u. I'm just sick of voting for evil, lesser or otherwise. It just seems like the last two elections, the GOP could have surely come up with someone better than McCain and Romney.

    Everybody knows Mitt is a RINO, but Ryan is another matter. He talks a good game but he voted for TARP, the Patriot Act (twice). NDAA 2012, and every bailout that came along. The mere fact that he voted for the Patriot Act and NDAA is not just a no, but hell no in my book.

    The GOP is going to lose this election and it's their own damn fault. After the way they treated Ron Paul's delegates, it's obvious that they could care less about the voters, their only concern is pushing their pre-chosen nominee.

    The way I see it, no matter what happens in November, we are screwed. The actual vote isn't going to count because the fix is already in. The best course of action I can see is to get Obama thrown out on his ass on legal grounds. The proof is there, all it's going to take is some courage and determination. The media has gone from leaning left to absolutely jumping off the left cliff, so they are no help.

    In the end, neither Obama or Mitt are going to fix the budget, it has simply gone too far to fix, even if they actually tried. They will kick the can down the road again in January and it's all over bu...

    In the end, neither Obama or Mitt are going to fix the budget, it has simply gone too far to fix, even if they actually tried. They will kick the can down the road again in January and it's all over but the crying when they do.

    The people of America need to wake up and realize that this is all a game that is intended to make us think we actually have some control over government. We gave that away in 1913 when we turned control of our money over to the private bankers (the Fed). The rest is history. The average American still believes that when they pay taxes, it goes to pay for all the functions of government. The truth is that all of the taxes the IRS collects do not pay one cent of the current expenses, it all goes to pay interest on money our government has already borrowed. Most of it goes to the Fed to pay interest on money they created out of thin air and then loaned to us. If there has ever been a more brilliant plan than the establishment of the Fed and fractional banking, I sure don't know what it would be. It's the greatest con ever invented and the transfer of all the wealth of the nation to the few that are the real controllers is almost complete.

    Rather than worry about which puppet is in the White House in January, we should be focused on what we can do to survive the anarchy that is coming. After all, the winner is already chosen, the rulers just haven't told us yet. I'd be willing to bet dollars to dog turds it's going to be Obama though. He's still not getting my vote, but neither is Mitt. Voting for evil is what has gotten us in this mess. We will get what we deserve.
