Yet, the roles have completely switched. Democrats aren't talking about cutting defense, but at least they also aren't talking about increasing it dramatically. The Republicans have completely gone off the rails on this issue, imo, and it is something they need to address going forward.

You can't be the supposed fiscally responsible party and advocate massive spending increases to a military already the size of the next 11 countries combined. It is lunacy. And it is an issue that would have traction for a lot of people on both sides of the aisle.

GOP is going to have issues winning any elections going forth. The demographics of America have changed and GOP has not been able to get the black and latino vote. Just look at the newborn statistics in this country, whites are now in the minority.

GOP needs to move towards the libertarian movement (ala Ron Paul.) But they are too stuck on social issues to ever go down that route.

Exactly, there's a reason why tons of women won last night, in somewhat doubtful situations even a month ago. Women turned out in hard core numbers to support themselves, and to make sure Mourdock and Akin(amongst other fanatics) stay the **** away from their ******s, who can blame them?

Some from my "friends" on Facebook:

-There is nothing to be thankful for. Now we have four more years of hell to endure. Those of you who think it's fun, go right ahead and enjoy it. All yours. It was a bad decision all the way around.
--The one's that think it's fun are having their thanksgiving paid for courtesy of the US government. They have a lot to be thankful for
--I don't get it. People really want to screw over who helps keep this country free? Whatever. We'll just keep on working for nothing so everyone else can be comfortable.

- Nation of Socialism here we come!
--(in response to being told to try not live off welfare if she struggles to get a job as the other poster has) -And I got that job because I stepped up to the plate and APPLIED myself. I don't have great job skills or history, and only a high school diploma. I WANTED a job, I got it. A lot of people live to the end of their unemployment benefits before looking, then realize oh, I can file an extension and sit around for another year til it runs out and at that point on taxpayer's money.
--(there was continued conversations where the guy kept saying that he couldn't get jobs because of tons of competition, and the girl kept blaming him for not applying himself)

- where the KKK at?

-GO IZZY!!!! Talking about the election and how Obama's won... All of a sudden we hear "EVIL MAN!"
(^ indicating that they have already brainwashed their 2 year old like the child understands politics)

- You know what I would think would make the election days more exciting? If the popular votes decided...

- Wonder what the outcome would have been had the troops actually gotten there ballots. Funny how that happen with troops overseas not receiving their ballots.

My favorite disappointed one:
- Balls.

She seems reasonable. Maybe I should have voted for Romney.

It was actually next 16 countries combined in 2011. Still right around there somewhere. Just insanity.

The Republicans don't understand that the audience for right-wing talk radio is NOT America.

So apparently America is becoming a socialist country and people are angry over it. Why don't people like sharing?

America has been a socialist country for a long time.

Who do you think foots the bill when someone goes to the hospital, doesn't have insurance (or couldn't get covered), and fails to pay up?

So much hypocrisy in that party it hurts.

Even the situation you describe is still very far from socialism, government is not running companies.
