And what would they think of our HUGE military industrial complex, and the worlds largest prison population???

There are 7 million americans in prison,that's twice the total US population of the founding fathers era...mainly courtesy of absurd drug laws propagated by the ALCOHOL and US PRISON INDUSTRY.....how long until they put these so called criminals to work like in China?
America prides itself for being a leader in many things as a nation but one statistic that we should not be proud of is the fact that the United States, the “land of the free”, imprisons more people than any other country on the planet, including China! The U.S. has over 2.3 million people behind bars while China, with 4 times the population has only 1.6 million. That’s right, with only 5% of the world’s population the U.S. incarcerates 25% of the world’s prisoners and people are imprisoned for things like writing bad checks and drug use that wouldn’t even get a prison sentence in many countries.

Would they be disappointed in the division between the parties, yes. Would they be disappointed in how the government they set up is working, no. It is working exactly as they wished.

What did the poll say in 2005?
In 1929? Or 1861?
Oh that's right...The media doesn't like history...Too many facts!

Thirty percent of the American public don't know much about anything. So I don't think much of this poll.
195,000 jobs. This will make DunceOff3 sick.
While the jobs numbers are nothing to shout about, one can only imagine where they would be if the Republicans would set obstructionism aside for the good of the country and the economy. The onus should be placed squarely on the shoulders of the do-nothing Congress.
Ronisha, So yes, 195,000 jobs is a lot, but we've got a long way to go. Get out of the way!!!!

If the founding fathers saw the USA today, first they would be amazed at the change. Politically, they would be happily surprised at the strength and tenacity of the US Constitution, i.e., the democracy they designed held up despite everything that's happered over the last 226 years.

I believe they would be advocating another revolution... all the government interference in their lives they fought, died and lost fortunes over all all back and worse. NSA, IRS, phone scandals are just the tip of the iceberg.. and it is a REPUBLIC not a democracy... read the founders they hated democracies.

"dissapointed in the U.S.A today"
Don't know exactly how many million pounds of watermelon were eaten yesterday, or how many millions watched a parade, waived a flag, spent time with family & friends...
Don't know how many more soldiers were at home today versus 2,3,4 years ago or why the fireworks in my neighborhood just seem to be getting larger & louder every year...Don't know the recipes for the hundreds of different potato salads and apple pies out there but second helpings seem to be available judging by the size of most Americans...
I think this question is ridiculous!
You can always find the dustys if you ask the right questions...And at this point I'm willing to say President Obama might only be a 7 out of ten......If the GOP could find anything above a 2, I'ld be happy to take a look at it! Until you do...Quit attacking America!
Obama 7 out of 10??? what have you been smoking as I'm sure it isn't legal.... He'd have a hard time to crack zero in my book and all his supporters rate about the same..

Don't think you understand the math subman...Whatever number you want to give Obama...Deduct 5 to arrive at the GOP level...Easy math!
ex:Obama 0...GOP person -5
ex:Obama 1...GOP person -4

"AND YOU love those figures?"
the Pathological LIAR Ron Carlson's spin on what I said.
"While the jobs numbers are nothing to shout about,"
Where did I say I love these figures?
"195,000 jobs is a lot, but we've got a long way to go."
Again...Where did I say I love these figures?
The Egg Lady strikes again. What a pathological LIAR Ron Carlson is.
"There is nothing that I dread so much as a division of the Republic into two great parties each arranged under its leader and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our constitution." John Adams, October 2, 1780

Charts of food stamp usage show that while a few Democrat led states have high food stamp usage; food stamp usage is highest consistently across Republican states. What does that say about the Republican approach?
The latest USDA report shows that 47.8 million Americans, which make up 15 percent of the country, are receiving the benefits Most of these individuals lived in Texas – the state with the highest average of monthly participants, which was 4.04 million in 2012.
49% were white (non-Hispanic); 26% were black or African American; and 20% were Hispanic (of any race).
Republican-Heavy Counties Eat Up Most Food-Stamp Growth...

Most Red States Take More Money From Washington Than They Put In Even as Republicans gripe about deficit spending, their states get 30 cents more federal spending per tax dollar than their Democratic neighbors. —By Dave Gilson Thu Feb. 16, 2012
I knew I could validate your 30% figure dusty...Nothing else, just the number...

"while the job numbers are nothing to shout about"
"195,000 is a lot of jobs, but we have a long way to go"
But the biggest pathological LIAR on the internet describes my comments as "thrilled to death with the June job report".
Ron Carlson lies so much if he swallowed nails he'd spit out cork screws. The man has no moral compass.
