What if we wake up on Nov. 7 and find that serial liar Barack Obama is re-elected, obstructionist Harry Reid remains U.S. Senate majority leader and Republicans retain control of the House? That outcome or lack of change would define an ideological chasm between Americans that cannot be bridged. Election of 1860 redux?
“(Rush) Limbaugh said the U.S. is headed for an economic collapse if something doesn’t change,” reports WND’s Joe Kovacs. ["Gloves off! Obama scorched as 'serial liar'"]

[To Joseph Farah:] You ask the question “Why are Americans killing themselves?” and reach deeply into the American psyche and the political and cultural milieu for answers; it is one of your greatest editorials.
Suicide is the ultimate act of despair or defiance. Like the proverbial canary in the mine, a soaring U.S. suicide rate telegraphs that something has gone terribly awry in our country. Recently, a woman caller to a radio show lamented that the loss of America and our freedoms under this federal government felt like the loss of a child. That, too, says i ... continue reading »
Dear Mr. Farah,
In all of the non-fiction books I have read about the Soviet Union, the one main thread or commonality was that the suicide rate, especially amongst high communist officials, was staggering.
Ah, the workers’ paradise, where God has been expunged, to each according to his needs, from each accorting to his abilities, where social justice was the order of the day … and the suicide rate was off the charts.
I can’t argue with the statements you make in your column, as they are my conclusions as well.
I wanted to take a moment to write to you about the national debt. I hear constantly from Democrats and liberals that President Obama has barely increased the debt we have now and that most of it was accumulated by President Bush. However, such a statement is patently false.
When Bill Clinton took office our national debt was $4.1 trillion. When he left office the national debt was $5.7 trillion, a $1.6 trillion increase. When George Bush left office our national debt was roughly $10.626 trillion dollars; Bush added just under $4.9 trillion to it. So together they added about $6.5 trillion (rounded up) over the course of 16 years. ... continue reading »
These past three and a half years have seen the price of gasoline more than double, the Middle East in flames, Israel, our only real friend in that area, thrown under the bus, our debt has risen by $6 TRILLION, and the average middle-class family has lost $4,000 in income – not to mention Obamacare.
I would look at that record and see a disaster. Somehow half the country looks at these facts and sees progress. I wonder if the half that sees this as a good thing are pulling the wagon or are riding in it. I have to believe that a rational, thinking person would look at that record and worry that if we have four more years of the sam ... continue reading »
That 47 percent Romney identified couldn’t care less about the economy unless someone figures out how to convince them that if the economy keeps falling their government handouts will “dry up.” The natural law of economics will always work: The pain index will continue to increase (more of us suffer) unless we change our ways and let the free market be unfettered by government overregulation.
