  1. Of course its getting better,its re-election year! even gas prices are down,and jobs are being created.

  2. Like most posted we need to get rid of Obama and clean the Senate of Democrat tax and spenders.
    Someone said the price of gas is down. They must not live in the same country as I. All of the things we buy at the store come by truck. The trucks use diesel fuel.Diesel is near 4 dollars a gallon. Do you call that better?

  3. Nothing is gonna get better until we wake up and nominate and elect Ron Paul as President. Democrats and Republicans have been in power too long. It's time to elect a statesman who cares for the country instead of their own power and riches.

  4. So true. In "Tragedy & Hope", Carroll Quigley wrote: "The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."

    There is NO SUCH THING as the "lesser of two evils"!

  5. Mark Twain wrote: "Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: 'There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.'"

    From what I have observed over the years, polls would fall in the third category.

    Besides, since the dollar has LOST nearly 97% of its value over the last 100 years (most of that in the last 40 years), and to borrow phrasing from Bill Clinton, define "getting better"!

  6. It won't get better until Obamacare is repealed, Republicans attain a majority in both houses of the U.S. Congress and a President that loves his country is elected.

  7. Rhino got it right. Anyone who thinks otherwise has been brainwashed or been living under a rock. I will pray for them.
