Why is the republican party giving an address? Are they the other president?

John Thune is either an idiot, or a liar, or very possibly both. Firstly, he has (appears to anyway) confidence that this newest NAFTA deal will save the economy. Obviously it won't. And I am not going to go through all the details as to why, because we already have the example from the GWB NAFTA deals. I seriously think that the reason Obama put off signing it for so long is because he knew better, but got pressured into signing by somebody holding a gun (figuratively of course) to his head. Secondly he (Thune) is so proud of his South Carolina economy, yet doesn't provide any statistical info, such as the income disparity between the working clas, and the elite class. Are all these employed people working for a living wage, or are they working for dirt?

It has nothing to do with democrat or Rupub. It doesn't matter which camp they are from. They are all puppets of Big Banksters, wall street, The Fed, etc. etc. Each term they get more & more brazen. We loose more & more rights, liberty, and the constitution is shredded more & more. You want change, real change put your money,( the little pittance you have left of it after the government sends it oversees, and squanders the part they keep), into candidates that have the people's interests at heart! Vote for RON PAUL 2012 no one has his record!! Never voted to raise taxes, never taken a penny of special interest money, never. Doesn't take any of the benefits allowed to him for being congressman) and anyone else like him or his son Rand, Geary Johnson, etc. Just voting by party wont help, you have to vote for the INDIVIDUAL. anyone pro-liberty. That doesn't mean the TEA party it means those with a record for supporting the "WE the people" JOIN END the FED, Young Americans for Liberty, Liberty Political Action Comity, the Republican Liberty Caucus, Campaign for liberty, go to the "MEET UP" website and join groups in your area that are being created on a daily basis to stop our current government policies and making change for the better for the PEOPLE! Make sure that you register republican for the primaries, in order to vote for RON PAUL who is running on a repub ticket even though he is Libertarian. Internet voting was just approved in

Don't vote for anyone that continues the staus quo. What is the status quo, it is the control by the International Banksters that own and control Wall street and the City of London Corporation, The ones that are robbing you of your wealth health and security. The ones that manipulate the oil prices and lie about Peak oil when Alaska is drowning in the stuff. The ones that have accumulated 140, 000, trillion dollars and won't give you a cent of their ill gotten gains. Why , because they want you children dead and gone. and want to take over everything you still think you posses, but don't because your Presidents have squandered it and given it away to those Crook Banksters and their demonic puppets that are signed up to the criminal UN ( United Nazi Organisation ) and the WHO ( World Homocide ) organisation and the FDA (Federal disease administration). Keep up the demonstrating, and hold onto your weapons, learn to use them sensibly, because the day will come you are going to need them to survive. God bless America. Please???????

Melanie K. What Reagan did with the mental hospitals sent a wave of crimes against people all over North America. In BC where I live, they did the same thing and quickly created a incredible surge of drug crime in Vancouvers DES or Downtown East Side. The drug dealers prey on them while the Spin Doctors(actual doctors) state that they are ok if they take their medication. The problem is that they DON'T take their medication because they are incapable of taking care of themselves. Now they eat out of garbage cans while the criminals take every penny they get on assistance. The DES has the WORST drug problem in all of North America.

When you can't win on policy than you must berate those with real solutions. The Party that spent us into bankruptcy wants us to believe they can fix the problem they created. Two unfunded wars, a unfunded senior prescription drug program, three unpaid for tax cuts, the creation of a whole new Federal Department of Homeland Security. Smaller government my a$$.
Yes the american people are screaming for change and that change will come by giving the President a democratic Senate and House of Representatives that will make the changes that will strenghten our country and get the credit card/Big government gang out of power. structure.

END THE WARS NOW that will get the economy going. We are spending 2 billion a week on the war in Afganistan alone! That money should be brought back home where it actually will do some good.
Presure Obama to get us out of these wars they make up nearly half the deficit.
10 years is too long for any war much less the need for any anyhow.
