As long as 41% of the people (128 million) are on some type of government program, questioning the hand that feeds them is not likely. They are exactly where government wants them; fully dependent on them.

"If you are familiar with Saul Alinsky's book "Rules for Radicals", one of the tactics to use is overwhelm the system.

I forgot, AG Holder says there is no voter fraud, just evil Republicans who want to hold down the Democratic vote." - Gregory Weigle

"I stand with any Patriot who wants the country the Founders envisioned." What the Founders agreed to is what we really need to focus on when harking back to days gone by. And what they agreed to was limiting the vote and slavery.

I see whackadoo Weigle is at it again, it is very doubtful that he read Saul Alinsky's book let alone research anything else in his letter. The right wing isn't cpapble of anything except pouting and throwing tantrums and resorting to outright lies.

Chuck, I believe both sides of the aisle are guilty of that. It's the main reason nothing gets accomplished. And as long as many Americans use the same tow the party line mentality, Congress will continue to do the same in order to please their followers.

Sorry in this instance it is the Republicans. They are not capable of governing.

"And what they agreed to was limiting the vote and slavery."--DavidBross

Why is it that this is the only part of the Constitution that liberals know? They never mention any of the other provisions including the provision to fix this one. They never mention that it was a result of the compromise they claim to love so much either. Is the Constitution perfect? No, but it is by far the best governing document ever devised by man, and we should get back to it. The more we allow our government to stray, the more freedom we lose.

Better check that!!!

I think MOST Americans recognize it's John Boner (caving to the T-Baggin' Class O' 2010), who's jamming-things-up.

Sorry to disappoint you Shaman, but as an Independent, myself and many others like me are totally disgusted with both sides of the aisle and the massive government we are left with today. The fact that you think liberals are any better than their conservative counterpart, just tells me that you are part of the problem like usual. I have to laugh when I see people pointing fingers, because their other four fingers are pointing back at them. I say vote term limits and get all these crusty old lobbyist influenced corruptiticians out of office!

Here again, this country was founded on a 'Great Compromise'. In light of current events, compromise seems to have been forgotten.

Sham-alama-ding-dong, you obviously didn't read the LTE or didn't understand the big (to you) words used. And did you notice you never address the substance of the LTE's, you just criticize and condemn. What IS your opinion of the many crisis and cover-ups, especially Benghazi, and how can it be blamed on Bush, Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, O'Rielly, Fox News, Levin, Boehner, Cruz, Lee, the Tea Party, Global Warming, 9/11, Iraq War, or Golden Dawn.

My reference to slavery and limited voting ties into the author's comments about the intentions of the Founding Fathers. The changes to the Constitution regarding slavery and voting happened long after the Founding Fathers were dead.

DavidBross, OK, I get it, you think that the founders were evil and we shouldn't listen to them. Whose ideas on government should we use in your opinion? Marx? That seems to be the course you prefer. Machiavelli? He seems to be a favorite in Washington. Maybe Nietzsche? Our President seems to feel that he is the Übermensch. Maybe you like that one. If not our Constitution, which political philosophy would you prefer?

You DO realize such "wizardry" is a sin, right??
