“I think the government of the United States is trying to get rid of the poor people and keep the rich and let them run the government so they can make their own rules.”

“Great, now Obama and his supporters’ hate speech is inspiring wackos to shoot conservatives. Isn’t Obama the one that wanted to soften the rhetoric?”

“Why was Obama so hurt and went right away to Colorado to express his sorrow and give his condolences to the victims of the shootings, when the same thing happens in Wisconsin, he is a no show? And to make things worse, he has Eric Holder fill in for him.”

“Do you want to know what Mitt Romney’s personal financial records and my personal financial records have in common? They’re personal! They are no one else’s freaking business! And I don’t even plan on voting for him.”

“As an independent voter I find it interesting that (Arizona’s) Republican legislators (at least 90 percent Mormons) call themselves “conservatives” but they passed several hundred bills this year. Does this sound like less government to you?”

“So let’s arm ‘Joe The Plumber’, send him down to our southern border and see just how long he lasts.”

“Why are people upset with the Arizona Cardinals? I’ve been telling you for a long time they need a coach, so don’t blame the players.”

“The USA Olympic woman’s basketball team wins their 5th gold medal, and just as they are about to receive them, Channel 12 cut away to a children’s show? They have no patriotic spirit. It’s all about dollars and contracts. Shame on you, Channel 12 programming department.”

“We shouldn’t really be concerned at this point if Romney ever paid taxes, one should be concerned and questioning his abilities to ‘successfully’ lead the country. Leaders of the recent past have proven disastrous.”

“The Sunday Venter who wrote, ‘As long as police forces and governments worldwide use tools like this to impose laws and policies, I will support a citizen’s right to carry those same tools to protect themselves’ sounds either mentally ill (paranoid schizophrenia, perhaps) or like someone parroting garbage from the so-called “Sovereign Nation.” These people hide behind the 2nd Amendment to impose their extreme agenda on average — and mostly apathetic — citizens, cheered on by spineless members of the NRA, and championed by politicians bought off by the wealthy, hoping that the lower 99 percent just kill each other off. From everything I have read and learned throughout my life, I seriously doubt that our Founding Fathers ever imagined that their words would be twisted into anything resembling anarchy.”
