      Because the purpose of this site is electing politicians.

      If you don't want to be part of change within the system, then you really ought to rethink your participation here.

        'Better' politicians.  Until you morph into Kos, quit trying to kick people off the site.  It won't work.

          Your cynicism for all politicians goes against the purpose of this site.

          That is a suggestion.  You may take it or leave it as you wish.

        This site wasn't always so filled with them ... I wouldn't be surprised if there are quite a few Koch moles stirring the brew.

          are all the Obama supporters have left. Kinda hard to argue for his policies...you know, derailng the 3rd rail, extending Bush's tax cuts, 5?6? (losing track!) pointless and costly wars, yawn on global warming, 9.2% unemployment, HAMP a scam, homelessness, growing wealth disparity, outsourcing on steroids... ya know, all the silly things that we kids care about!

            meant to say, 'all the silly things we stupid, petulant children care about'

            btw, your arrogant, nasty and out-of-touch remark sums up all that is wrong with the Obama Administration.

              is to elect a president who will raise the medicare age to 67, at which time most laborers will be dead, cut social security thru more bullshit col adjustments, allow wage disparity to continue adversely to workers, wage wars that should never have been waged, continue to violate international conventions on torture, raise a billion wall street dollars to continue the destruction of the middle and working class, nice to know the president we elected enjoys having his.

              i am just a fat 61 year old white man who cried with joy upon the election of this president. now i regret not supporting hillary who would have at least not have contributed to the tearing apart of what was left of the safety net.  

              and people here actually applaud him for abandoning them, then laugh about tea baggers who vote against their self interests.
