    That letter says it all. I predict there will be a big backlash, maybe even a cultural revolution, within the next decade.

    Let's just hope we have some follow through on this. I would hate to see the same pattern that happened after Clinton repeating itself. If you go voting for some fool who calls him/herself a "compassionate conservative", or if you buy into the idiotic nonsense about going for the "electable" candidate (worked well with Romney...) then all this talk is for nothing. Too many get angry when the opposing party is in power and fail to pay attention when their side gets back in. Thus we had then-record deficits under Bush, along with many other policies the left was screaming about, and now we have someone who is mostly the same but with a (D) next to their name and the left loves him. BTW, all 4 of those mentioned were or are AWB supporters. This is foolish. You want a real cultural revolution? You'd better be paying attention at primary time, and stop nominating these tools. Once they're elected, even if they're in your party, you'd better keep the pressure on. Otherwise it's the equivalent of just being mad your favorite football team didn't make it this season.

    Unless some serious positive changes are made in the next two years, I'm sensing a "revolution" at the polls for the mid-term elections. Sadly, I could be wrong.


    Complacency and ignorance are serious diseases for the voters in any country.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    ...rid themselves of complacency...
    As long as <they> have their Obama phones, it won't happen. (i.e) social programs breed total complacency and mind numbing apathy.

    I've said this many times. If you keep voting for the lesser of two evils, then sooner or later, neither of the evils will be any lesser.

    The Republican Party is its own worst enemy and has been for years. "Let's see now, the economy is in shambles and a lot of people are bitter and feel disenfranchised, so who can we nominate for president? Aha! That's it! A multimillionaire!" Before that, it was John "What I Believe Changes Every Day" McClain.

    I voted Libertarian once, but honestly, some of their ideas are even a little too "fringe" for me. If a real conservative would come forward, I believe he could win in a landslide in 2016.

    There are too many riding on the coat tails, and do not wish to cut the ride short.

    Too many of us, who know/knew the system is/was failing, and look to others to fix it, or worse yet hoped some within the government would try to fix it.
    This has been the status quo for 40 years, and it has built into a crescendo, and now I fear the fat lady has already left the building.

    So we should instead vote for the greater of two evils?

    Evil is evil......... The vote should go to neither...........

    My opinion is America needs to never vote for an incumbent(no matter how good they are) for about 10 years to cleanse out the riff raff..........

    That might be a good thing, but it will be Hilary anyway. Living in the Whitehouse isn't political experience though. Not that it would stop the stupid people from voting for her.
