Ms Lorraine, I'm sorry but I'm at a loss as to where you are getting your information from. 1) The government is supposed to insure our safety: Does invading a country on false pretenses make us safer? It has been established that the Iraq war did *nothing* to improve our safety. It killed and maimed our boys, cost us untold billions of dollars, and got friends of our former vice-president rich. 2) The Medicare drug program was an unfunded program, plain and simple. It's no different than what you said is wrong in Europe, promising something that cannot be paid for. 3) Tax cuts improve federal revenue??? Could you please give me the source of your proof? There is not one single reputable economist that I know of that agrees with that statement. If that's the case as you state, then I'm for completely eliminating ALL taxes, income, sales, property, excise, inheritance, etc. And then let's see how much wealth the government accrues.

Ridiculous. Please give us the Freedom to believe and vote the way we want. Are we all Americans?

I don't see the freedom in getting snookered into believing in complete falsehoods and fabrications. A little emotion goes a long way to stop people from thinking! It is utterly appalling some of the offensive rhetoric that has been used to keep Americans from having reasoned conversation.

You already have the freedom. What's the matter? Are all these comments making you think twice about your choice? You know who is not getting the choice, those having their votes suppressed by republicans in various states, particularly Florida. Be glad you don't live in a battle ground state.

Hi Carolyn, Yes, we are all Americans, (or guests- legal andother wise), and I certainly look forward to my income tax (45%) approaching that of what Romney has been paying the past ten years: 13%. So, no, I'm not a proud American.
