I have been called a racist in the last week several times just for asking simple questions about simple problems.

I have asked exactly how does spending $1.8 trillion save an economy when the last president was vilified for spending one-fourth that amount?

Also, explain how printing more money will not lead to inflation later on.

What is being done to call the president to task on his campaign promises for greater fiscal responsibility?

If our president is preaching greater transparency, why is he encouraging Congress and the American people to pass legislation even the Congressmen have not read?

Not one of you can give me any definitive answers. You cannot quote facts and figures, you talk in the same platitudes the president does. When I press you for facts, that is when the "racist" comments start. When you get personal with me, it means that you don't have the facts necessary to debate me on an even footing.

I therefore refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

It would appear that you listen to or watch the different conservative people you are writing about. Do you not know the US Constitution and the First Amendment? This is an opposing voice against what millions of Americans see as a violation of the Constitution.

Are you supporting child prostitution of illegal children like ACORN?

Are you supporting evading paying taxes on income like ACORN?

Are you supporting anmesty for illegals like President Obama recently suggested for healthcare?

Are you supporting have avowed communist sitting near the president and writing policy for our government?

Are you supporting passing bills against the will of the majority of the American people?

Are you supporting abortion using taxpayer money like Planned Parenthood?

Are you for school children being taught songs to glorify the man in the office of president instead of our country as a whole?

Do you want America to be like Venezula, Cuba, Iran where the people have no voice in the direction of the country?

It seems you are a very dedicated liberal, thinking everything will work out just great as long as we Spread the Wealth around, but, my dear Ms. Williams, there comes a day when one does not have a job due to all the businesses closing, as the government pays more than the employer. Think about it.

A voice of opposition is required to keep a balance, just like our forefathers warned us.

What goes around, comes around. These rantings covered by this article are the exact equivalent of the equally stupid and unjustified ravings directed against the previous president. Pretending that the Republicans had turned fascist or stolen elections, and other bizarrre charges without substantiation. (I myself spent two weeks in 2005 going over 2004 precinct results from areas of Ohio, before dismissing that fantasy election problem.)

No wonder the Nut-Right felt it had a license to copy the Nut-Left's recent record. Center-Left Obama matches Center-Right Dubya. It is quite likely that the next president will be the first conservative since Reagan.

You cannot seriously condemn today's talk without looking at the roots. Frankly, I'm sick of both sides' being unhinged.

If this unreality continues from both sides, we are headed for a civil war eventually.
