".. the only thing the GOP wants is for the rich to get richer."

TRUE!

"Have you noticed that under this President the rich HAVE been getting richer and definitely the poor are getting poorer."

TRUE!

"Food stamps have doubled, not under Bush, but under our King."

ABSOLUTELY FALSE!

"NINETY-THREE MILLION U.S. Citizens out of work under your King."

TOTALLY FALSE!

Depending on the source, the total workforce is around 150 to 155 million, so you are saying that almost 2/3rds of Americans are unemployed and Obama is to blame?

Is Zookville anywhere near LaLaLand?

Lying destroys your credibility!

"C'mon, Teabaggers...c'mon. The smart-money is on Bill's & Hill's terms III & IV." - sham

In 2016 Hillary will have a title. But it'll sound more like "prisoner" than it does "president."

johnnyad,

I didn't ask what would happen if he leaves offices. I posed the question about what would happen if he doesn't (as in when his term would be finished)leave?

I saw a display of Duck Dynasty beard lollypops today. These good old boys might be red necks, but they sure know how to merchandise themselves. The display was in Bon Ton, a fairly upscale department store. Even those of us that haven’t watched the show know who they are.

Not a prob. T-Bagger works, just as well.

Sorry Shaman, Not all red necks are members of your favorite s e x practice group. Therefore, it really does not work just as well.

One only needs to read these comments to see the "war" of words reigns on between the left and the right and I see no end in sight. Then you have our legislators and president along with the media talking heads fueling the fire and seeming to take pleasure in a nation divided. One has to wonder what kind of country our grandkids are going to be left with. This is exactly the results of what some of our founding fathers warned us against regarding a two party system.

Obama thinks there are 57 states and can't differentiate "corps" from "corpse." Sham thinks Lewis Black is Louis Black. And chuckles just babbles incoherently.

Despite their so-called "book smarts", some of these so-called "progressives" are about as dumb as a box o' rocks.

“Splitting the country between states based upon collectivist statism and those based upon individual liberty and a free market may be the only solution since there isn’t a middle ground solution.”

Chuck: “So which state winds up with all the power then?”

And he wonders why we give little credence to his posts and ability to understand a point being made in a discussion.

Mercury2 @9:42- So the only thing the GOP wants is for the rich to get richer. Have you noticed that under this President the rich HAVE been getting richer and definitely the poor are getting poorer. Food stamps have doubled, not under Bush, but under our King. NINETY-THREE MILLION U.S. Citizens out of work under your King. Yep, it's the GOP's fault....

Article II Convention amendments are all designed to return power to the states and the states' citizens. These bypass the federal government because the federal government is never going to give up the power it has unconstitutionally amassed. Some of the proposed amendments would garner great bipartisan support.

Whether it works or not, it's not a gimmick, it's a proposed possible solution.

The agree/disagree iterator is always working in the background. As other users click on his or her choice, it is counted, but not rendered on the screen until the comments are refreshed, which happens when you enter your own choice.

But I'm an uneducated, uncreative teabagger, so I don't really know what I'm talking about, or something.

They will not stop until they destroy what has been conceived by our Founding Fathers……… CMReeder If you go with your sidekick Webster down there (MrShaman) by definition the conservatives are the ones sticking to the roots…… Conservative: tending or disposed to maintain existing views, conditions, or institutions.

So which state winds up with all the power then?

The right is completely out of their freakin' minds.

They won't be happy until they have run every liberal/non conservative out of this country along with every minority. They will stop at nothing to make conservatism the only ideology in this country. They will not stop until they destroy what has been conceived by our Founding Fathers.

Tea party didn't work so now it is Convention of States Project. Very popular down south I see. I agree it will be a civil war of sorts. Good luck.
