You want to talk of the depressed and depressing state of affairs in Detroit and the whole of Michigan? Fine, who do you keep electing to office. I don’t see the Daly machine taking any hits of significance in Chicago and its environs. The majority of voters seem quite content. And don’t even talk about the Illinois Senators that keep getting elected time after time. Well, Obama is new, but his attitude and voting habits are not. Speaking of farm bills, how long has Harkin of Iowa been in office? I think that it is still the voters putting him there. I mean, we could go state after state, even among some fairly red states.p>Face it, those of us that read and comment at websites like the Spectator simply are NOT the majority of the voting public. I have heard that the tachometers were removed from the caskets of all the American founding fathers. The RPMs were so high that they were constantly red lined. It is even rumored that John Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey are having significant heartburn over the antics of their fellow party members, elected and unelected. So, on the theory that even a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while, kudos to Mike Roush for telling it like it really is. We really have met the enemy, and he really, really is us. When the majority of voters change their demands, the elected politicians will change their agendas. br> — Ken Shreve br> New Hampshire /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
