    What Lincoln said.............

    Listen up Obama, your hero's words.


    You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person recieves without working for, another must work for without recieving.The Government cannot give to anybody anything the the Government does not first take from someone else. When half the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they worked for, that my friends, is about the end of any nation - Abraham Lincoln

    • The American Revolution was about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and America became a great nation based on these principles.

      The French Revolution was about liberty, equality, and fraternity. It became a sadistic bloodbath, spawned a dictator, and failed miserably.

      The only kind of equality the government can give is an equal chance to use your abilities to succeed. The government can't give people equal standards of living.

    • O is for overmatched.

    • i before e, except after c, Kurt...

    • Bush dug us into a deep hole that will take several presidents to get us out. But I'm glad you now understand what I've been talking about for a year Gimmiechicken, nice to have you on the fiscally conservative liberals side of things, finally

    • The non-partisan CBO announced that the estimates of the budget deficit put forth by the administration underestimated the budget by and lead to an, in their words not mine, "...an ever-expanding national debt that would exceed 82 percent of the overall economy by 2019 -- double last year's level -- and threaten the nation's financial stability."

      The house of cards is crumbling fast isn't it.

    • a spar a gus is a spar a gus.

    • Corn is corn.

    • I will take froggy's advice on this one Kurt, who cares about another blind ranting "It's all Bush's fault" post by this fool.

      Did you notice that an ID that has never posted before popped up on this thread. What a coincidence.

    • you've got to be a moron to support obama. the thing i hate about him is that people have been ridiculed for criticizing him... criticizing the president... oh yeah that never happened to george bush fair is fair... wait a fucking second bush was ridiculed for everything he did. he was a terrible president, the republicans let me down, but it was the democrats sitting on the board of fannie mae and freddie mac that lobbied for loosening credit guidelines so they could make mortgages to those who werent worthy to make money. the greed of these institutions and congress' dumb asses giving in to the lobbying of groups like acorn to put people in houses has created this mess. not an inept president. blaming bush for this is like crediting clinton for the boom in the 90s neither one of them has anything to do with it.

      anyway this crisis doesnt give obama the green light to replace a defective system with an "all knowing" government. the private sector most efficiently spends money, not the government, which is why AMERICA IS A CAPITALIST SOCIETY, get that through the president's head. if you had a brain you would realize that he is an idiot. GO LINCOLN!!!

      • You are ridiculing people who support Obama in the same way you are complaining about being ridiculed for criticizing Obama supporters, (that sounds like I'm describing a jock).

        A little bit less of the extremism and a little bit more of common sense, like Kurt's original post.

        Now I like that post because it is just good common sense, in my opinion.

      • the private sector most efficiently spends money, not the government,

        can you explain how that is true ? ENRON ? madoff ? would you like me to name more ?

        obama is not spending all this money cause the housing market is a OK .. obama isn't spending all this money cause education is well funded .. ( bush;s leave all kids behind program )..

        US has been in a crisis for 8 yrs .. in those eight years we have had the worst terrorist attack , one of the worst housing market crashes . the biggest budget deficit ever .. the biggest single year deficit ever the most us troop lost outside a war on foreign ground ( iraq 5000) .. we invaded a country that we are now spending trillion in , ON A LIE bush admitted this .. all the while countries like north korea iran , are building nukes right in fron of our eyes .. and we can not do anything cause we are taxed resource wise in IRAQ ... why did bush choose to invade a country on lies when clearly iraq was not the biggest threat .. to him and his oil buddies maybe but compared to north korea .. osama ( in aphganistan) IRAN .. iraq was nothing ..

        ALL ON LIES bush admitted to ..

        YES obama plans on spending record amounts .. but atleast he plans on spending it here .. in AMERICA for americans .. he is spending it on schools , healthcare,housing ..... and what at the cost of the rich getting slightly less rich ? I mean common donald trump isn;t going to be eating off the mcdonalds value menu anytime soon

        by defective do you mean BUSH and CHENEY using the government to make money for the OIL industry and HALERBERTON

        don't you find it odd there are less successful attack on the oil fields in iraq then on the troops in town or the iraq people ? they protect a pruduct more than a people even our people

        don't you find it odd the HALERBERTON got billions of dollars in compete free contracts?

        so do you think the way clinton left our economy was worse than the way BUSH left our economy ? that hillarious ..

        so did you post the week the stock market dropped 1800 in one week ? that trillions of dollars in lost revenue .. oh that was under bush .. that was before obama was elected .. did you post the week bush admitted he lied about iraq involvement in both 911 and WMD ?
