Hard as it is to take, watch this despicable video of Tea Party activist and Sterling Heights Michigan City Councilman Paul Smith holding a sign which depicts President Obama's head on a spike. (beginning at 1:42)
Smith is refusing to resign, even though he told WDIV TV, "Hitler was a terrible guy but at least he wasn't a traitor to Germany... Obama is a traitor to America."
This is nothing more than lowly educated, low information voters who get their opinions from FOX News. They don't realize that they're nothing but puppets for corporate America who tells them taxes are too high, regulations too stiff and that there's too much government in their lives. I just wonder how many of these goofs are receiving some type of government hand-out. I know one here in Chicago, a die-hard Repub, who receives SS disability, food stamps and housing subsidies. He's not quite a senior either, but I'd like to see his reaction if Ryan's budget throws him out on the street.

The woman who points out that there were lots of other signs and they pick out the nasty one...... Why didn't the decent people there shame that guy into taking that sign down? The bully culture thrives on this hate & fear.

We had Sarah Palin with Gabrielle Giffords name and Congressional district in a map with a gun crosshairs target and no one took it seriously. Then she was nearly assassinated. What is it going to take to stop these insane fools from inciting violence all over this country?

BTW why isn't showing the head of the President of the United State on a spike not considered a threat on the man's life???
Why aren't the Secret Service and the FBI going after this guy? He is obviously mentally unstable. He is a threat if he would be that bold.

Repealing the Affordable Heath Care Act means death or bankruptcy
How far will a coupon for your health care get you when you are faced with millions of dollars if debt fighting cancer facing death in a hospital be unable to work? What a deal you get a $7,000.00 dollar voucher towards your hundred thousand dollar medical bill if Romney/Ryan get their way....you do the math...........it is Ryan/Romney Individualism that goes against our proud Americanism that I believe makes America strong..........our Unity & belief in community verses Ryan's belief in Individualism "every man for themselves".

Ryan is for Individualism...........Ryan is against Americanism!!!!!!!!!!!!
the Ryan/Romney Budget is basically the End to Medicare as we know it that basically turns Medicare into a Voucher Coupon Clipping Program...........Here is your coupons you are on your own...............sorry Ryan/Romney.........it is Americanism that makes America the great country that it is...................the Ayn Ran selfish Individualism might work great for the top 1%, but it means the end of the Middle Class...............why should the middle class pay for Individualism at the top with our Americanism that makes up the middle class.........you can keep your coupons for health care Ryan/Romney.........................we want to keep our Medicare............I have paid into Medicare my entire life now Romney/Ryan want to take it away from me & replace it with a coupon book.

GOP Effort to Suppress the Vote is the Real Voter Fraud:
Radical Republican Pre-Vote Tampering through suppression should be a Criminal Felony:
We need to focus like a laser on the Radical Right Wing Voter Suppression efforts..........the GOP are putting out obstacles to make if more difficult & frustrating for Democratic voters to vote through voter ID laws & limited voting hours, days & etc in Democratic Districts while rolling out the red carpet for Republican voting districts through extended voting hours & days.............the only Voter Fraud that is real is the GOP effort to suppress the vote.

MItt wants his personal finances to be separate from his corporate finances....but Mitt "Corporations are people my friend"..........according to Mitt they are the same thing in one sentence but completely different when he says "I am not a business" when he hides his taxes full financial disclosure............the fact of the matter is not releasing your tax returns & full financial disclosure is really about honesty & transparency...........and it is also about the economy, jobs & tax fairness which also ties into deficit reduction & bringing money into the treasury so middle class tax payers don't have to pay more so Mitt can pay less or zero.......
