    I really hate (and therefore pretty much refuse) to get involved with political debates.  I feel the the two sides have such fundamentally different views on how they see this country moving forawd and what they want it to look like for the next generation that trying to debate it is futile and just feels like banging my head against the wall.

    But I did want to express my support for Mrs_Amanda for being willing to go up against the very left-leaning hive.  You are a better woman than I for being willing to take the time to put everything down in writing and find the sources to go with it.  I know ChemistryBride had also chimed in but I wanted you to know that you aren’t the only one on the Hive with similar views.  I’ve agreed with the vast majority of what you’ve posted.

    “I fundamentally believe, to my core,  the government is not the answer to the problems. I think smaller government intervention, free market enterprise, state led initiatives ( including healthcare) should take precedence.”

    “The AMOUNT of money is not the issue the government has, it is the MANAGEMENT of money… I think we, as Americans, can pump dollar after dollar into the system… but until we get some people in office who will accurately manage it, we are just spinning our wheels.”

    These above two comments that Mrs_Amanda previously made really jumped out at me as representing my thoughts and what drives them.  I believe that, with the current state of our country, economic policy needs to take precident over social policy in the upcoming election.

    I hope the discussion can continue to stay civil but I won’t be an active participant because political discussions are simply painful to me.  I just wanted to show Mrs_Amanda some support!

    I should stay away from this board, and Im gonna but I just have one question….why the Fox News bashing? Just because its slightly more right leaning than other news sources does not mean its unreliable. I see MSNBC as more left leaning, but I dont think its an unreliable source of information. Its just that there is a different spin on it. Just because you dont agree with the views reported, does not mean its fake or made up

    Sorry…dont mean to hijack your link. I just saw the Fox News callout and wanted to ask…

    Ok, thats my whole 5 minutes of fame on this board 😉

    @mrssoontobeh:  The controversy doesn’t lie in Fox News being biased. The problem has to do with Fox falsifying news in order to further alienate groups of people they disagree with. It’s hard to show your tone on the internet, so I am saying this in a friendly tone lol.

    @SoupyCat:  That is a very interesting poll – thanks for posting. 

    I think it is interesting that Daily Show watchers ranked third – above CNN, MSNBC, and FOX. 

    Also, thanks to everyone for this discussion – I think it is fascinating!

    @SoupyCat:  Yikes! That is unsettling. A very good friend of mine watches Fox News. She made a really ridiculous statement (that Obama has caused more debt than all other Presidents combined) and I asked, “What the.. do you watch Fox News or something?” And she said yes. That surprised  me, because she is more Liberal than anything, and she is not at all gullible. Fox News did say that btw, and of course, it is not true. Anyway…

    Is anyone else getting worried that Obama could lose? Romney has gotten a jump in the polls because of the last debate. i am only 24, and can’t recall how much of a predictor the polls are a month out.

    I would like to see a poll added. I don’t know if it’s too much to ask to have one done weekly. It seems like the views of the American public are shifting fairly regularly and I would like to see what the hive thinks. Also if we could have the following choices:

    Obama

    Romney

    Leaning Obama

    Leaning Romney

    Undecided

    Third Party Canidate

     

    If this is too much work that’s cool. 🙂
