Brightside -- You may be right -- I hope you're right, (Let's see if this Snowden guy produces any evidence of warrantless spying on citizens) . . . It's just that I've never seen so much duplicity coming from the executive branch since the Nixon administration. And based on the apparent political attacks by the IRS, I do believe that zealots in the Obama administration would indeed use any means at their disposal to hamstring their opponents, knowing that they probably won't be held accountable. And yes, I do think they have surpassed any deviousness ever seen before by a party in power in America.30 minutes ago
Trust must be earned.
When the Obama administration emphatically and repeatedly put out the false narrative that an irrelevant video caused the attack on the Benghazi consulate, it lost some trust.
When Eric Holder falsely stated before Congress that he was not aware of any Justice Department investigations of any reporters just before we found out he had signed off on investigating Fox's James Rosen as a "co-conspirator and possible flight risk," he lost some trust.
When we learned that the IRS has singled out and harassed political opponents of the president, especially in the run up to the 2012 election, trust was lost.
I'd like to think that the NSA's use of phone records, etc. has been prudent, legitimate, and valuable, but the constant dissembling of Team Obama has left me extremely suspicious.
It appears that the liberal progressives now occupying the executive branch (and dominating the mainstream press) believe that their cause and ideology are so superior, so important, that it is okay for them to ignore the rules and manipulate the system. 3 hours ago
Before we give Snowden any medals, we need him to produce proof that any citizen phone calls were listened to or any emails read without proper warrants. So far, he has made accusations with no proof.12 hours ago
Here we go again . . . another year of being equated with a racist if I personally believe that marriage should be defined as a union between a man and a woman . . . 2 days ago
I am amazed at those who will apparently stand by the Obama administration regardless of what illegal or unethical actions it takes. I have never in my life seen a group so blindly loyal as the current liberal progressives are to this charismatic but inept political figure. The Democrats in power in Washington appear to think they can do whatever they want regardless of statute or precedent -- perhaps they are right.3 days ago
Our entire society needs to get it together morally and ethically, not just the police. And let's not label entire groups of people (police, teachers, politicians, Tea Party members, etc.) just because of a few crazy, self-serving individuals.4 days ago
"Liberals/Independents use facts to cite issues"
Maybe independents, but I have yet to meet a liberal who doesn't make decisions based on emotions rather than reason.2 weeks ago
"What the heck is wrong with Colvin, Smith and Burk?" They really do want to jettison the public school system in favor of charters (Which are loosely monitored by centralized committees in Phoenix) . They sought election for the very purpose of undermining GPS, not serving its constituents. They are doing exactly what they said they would do when they were elected. From the outset, Colvin showed that he understands very little if anything about school finance, and he doesn't really care to learn. He just knows he wants to cut as much as and often as possible, not to help the district, but to weaken it. Our democracy only works well when we make informed, thoughtful decisions when we go to the ballot box. And to the TEA Party enthusiasts who are supporting these people -- I'm a free-market, fiscally conservative Republican who wants Obamacare stopped in the worst way . . . but I don't want to touch the TEA Party in Gilbert with a 10-foot pole.2 weeks ago
Mike . . . The national TEA Party refused to endorse or support Mitt Romney, so I wouldn't blame them for losing that election. And seriously? I have a lot of problems with TEA Party actions locally, but opposing Obamacare is something all thinking Americans should be doing. You think Obamacare is a well-crafted piece of legislation? Our premiums are up because of it, and they're about to go into the stratosphere in 2014. (The President assured us that they would decrease). I think you should rethink your admiration for this inept, though charismatic disaster of a president . . . It's time for those who "felt the tingle running up their legs" in 2008 to recognize that this guy does not know the first thing about running any organization.2 weeks ago
Nice Tina; you've signed on to the Liberal-Progressive strategy of name-calling. TEA Party stands for "Taxed Enough Already," and the primary concern is that we are over-taxed and government is too big. You may disagree with that posture and are still star-struck by our inept yet charismatic Obama administration, but it's childish to call these people racist. And sorry to question your conveniently incomplete historical analysis, but the tea tax DID have something to do with the original Boston tea party. They wanted the right to protest a tax in Parliament.2 weeks ago
