"Vote for those who love our country and want to put us back on the right track, not with promises (or lies) but with action."

I think many who run and get elected have good intentions when first getting in office. But I believe the senior hardline politicians that are in the pockets of lobbyist influence and bully the freshmen and junior politicians to get their way and what's "best for the party" regardless if it's best for America.

Today's liberals cannot see how their programs have robbed this nation of much of its greatness.

In their blind pursuit of "compassion", they have created, among many, laziness and apathy.

In their blind pursuit of power, they have created, among many, a lack of a moral code.

Every major gov't social program exceeded its budget estimates quickly. Obamacare was exceeding its budget estimates before it was launched.

Yet, do we see an accounting?

Do we see any effort at responsible use of other people's money?

"The cost of the web site was six hundred million dollars, and it will not work. Someone with a sharp pencil just figured out we could hire 500 computer engineers pay them $200 per hour for 40 hour work week, and it would take ten years to spend 600 million. Somebody's buds got rich out there. Poor Bernie Madoff is sitting in jail wondering why he didn't go into politics, I think he needs company."

Another government sponsored money laundering scheme to return money to the cronies that support politicians election efforts.

Just like alternative energy companies, electric car companies, and too many more examples to cite here.

A great example of the corruption from the liar, President Obama.

It seems Mr. Dudley is infected with a virus himself. It is called ignorance.

We all have ignorance because no one knows everything about everything.

Your comment is meaningless; it is like saying, we all have brains.

Erik, not to throw you off but didn't GWB campaign as a "compassionate conservative". How do you rectify your opinions with those of the current Pope? I find we all use to many quotes from various media outlets. Everyone does understand that none are using true investigative journalism. Super Pac's from both sides leak "info (usually something true only in part, incomplete quotes or questionable info" to the respective aligned outlets and then "news" is disseminated to us.

We no longer have politicians, but corrupticians. D.C. is the District of Corruption, and Dumbama is the Liar-in-Chief.

The letter covered a lot of ground and that diluted his message. That being said, I liked what he said about Madoff and politics.

David, Madoff didn’t force anyone to do business with him and his scheme, That’s not the case with government and its schemes.

Red scare. Be afraid of the liberals, progressives and socialists. Corporations and the free-market are infallible. God is on the side of capitalism. Jesus would carry an assault rifle because he was a conservative. He wanted it to all stay the same.
