I recently posted this on another forum to which I belong. I guesstimate their membership to be about 97% conservative, wingbat Republican. I'm just curious to see how different, if at all the commentary is to the article and my statements. Growing hate groups blame Obama, economy By Stephanie Chen I don't get angry or pissed off as I'm sure many of you think a liberal to moderate Democrat like me would. Actually I try to stay out of most political forums because it makes my heart hurt. :frown1: That so many otherwise intelligent people could be misled by talk radio, conspiracy theories, fringe blogs, and alleged news sites is frightening to me. I've even heard some of you mention stocking up on guns and the possibility of civil war. Why? To what end? You all claim to be patriots; but a true patriot would never deliberately tear his country asunder for the things you have mentioned. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if it comes to that it will be because of the conservative right, not the liberal left. For what freedoms are you fighting? What is it that you feel you have lost because of President Obama's actions or inactions? I am aware that there is a HUGE deficit and the current stimulus bill, which though signed by the President, was not written by him. While some of you have come up with one or two good ideas, I have yet to see any of you come up with an overall stimulus bill or alternative to such that is guaranteed to work better. NAFTA and the outsourcing of jobs to India, Mexico, and Asia? Yeah well I'm not a fan of that either. I never was, but guess what? NOT OBAMA's FAULT! Since the election, well over 100,000 people have been laid off from various companies across the nation. Lay-offs of that magnitude are never decided overnight. Those companies were in trouble months if not years before President Obama even got the nomination. Chris Rock told a joke on one of his specials a few years back and though vulgar, truer words were never spoken. He said, "There is nothing a white man with a nickel hates more than an 'N' word with a dime." As to why I keep an eye on this and other politics forums, I believe in keeping my friends close and enemies closer.
