And leave Julian Assange alone. I saw his interview on 60 minutes and frankly he seemed more credible than most our Country's politicians, president included.

No, we don't. He won the election and the only way to deserve any particular outcome in a representative government is to win the hearts and minds of voters, at the time of the elections.

Sometimes, you don't get to fight corporatocracy with the exact President you'd most like, and you just have to fight corporatocracy with as much assistance as you can get out of the President that you have.

Some participants on this Web site do not seem to understand the concept of three branches of government and a system of checks and balances. They focus exclusively on Obama to the exclusion of the other two branches.

What we deserve are better members of Congress in both parties, but especially the winning back of the House by Democrats and more Democratic senators. The Democratics are not perfect, but in Congress they would prevent Republicans from passing laws and budgets that could be damaging to many of our citizens and to public policies designed to protect citizens from economic hardships and corporate financial abuses and envirornmental pollution. Obama's appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court, although perhaps not completely ideal, are a vast improvement to those appointed by the two Bushes and those who would be appointed by another Republican. Talking about American politics without being realistic is not something that interests me.

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
