As I look at the earnest smiling face of a young man who went to the same college as I and read his words, I am astounded by the naiveté that he and my classmates have about the nature of government. They believe that somehow having the appropriate person steering the crushing power of the Federal Government and it myriad of laws, life is suddenly.better. In their case, it is Obama and the Democrats. It could just as easily have been what passes for Republican in today's world. They believe that they are the beneficiaries of the government if only he is captaining that ship.
The Ship of State is incapable of being steered. It is coursing full speed at a shoal of rocks and only unstoking the engine of bureaucracy of  its fuel of laws will slow it down. That is done in Congress and the Senate, not the Presidency.
Those rocks? Those rocks include the boulders of  the collapse of our currency under an overburden of debt, the destruction of the middle class,  the end of what manufacturing is left in the US, and being sunk by a tidal wave of ever more inexpensive labor. These boulders on shore are surrounded by the rip-rap of the end of our medical system, further diminishment of racial harmony, a loss of domestic tranquility, further loss of freedoms, and perhaps even national sovereignty. And ultimately even starvation. Needless to say (and to continue the metaphor) there are those moonrakers, domestic and foreign, who greedily await our nation running aground to pick up the spoils.
Pete, Dianne, Dave, Felicia, Warner, and the rest somehow do not recognize that they also will be throw over the side to drown, not merely Republicans. They do not have some special life jacket because they believe. We will sink or swim while carrying the dead weight burden of our government. And with any karma at all, the ones who have riding on the backs of others will the be first to drown.

Please, take back control of our language: 

Those people in Washington and on TV are not Liberals, 
they are Progressives. People have been brainwashed by the TV to believe that government control of everything, and government robbing Peter to buy Paul's vote is liberal.  Whether they are for that or against that, they both have bought the TV dialog. Liberal was about Liberty and Freedom for the individual, the end of the slavery and serfdom that marked most of mankind's existence; not about making us slaves of the commons. Progressives are hiding behind that term "Liberal". Drag them out into the open - 
They are Progressives, and where they are progressing us to is particularly ugly.

Written while enduring an unusually cold spell. 49 of the 50 US states are experiencing freezing weather. Many of them setting records not just for the date, but since records were kept. Current temperature here in Georgia 7°F - not a record low, but cold as  ####.
A religion does not need to be proved by science or even observation. Credo, "I Believe". The belief alone is enough to sustain the belief system.

Global Warming does not require facts or consistency for its believers to be certain of its existence or to condemn non-believers.  In fact, even contra-indication is proof of its existence. It is a religion.

THEREFORE: Any official Government action is support of the belief in Global Warming is a de facto Government support of religion, and a violation of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution's "Establishment Clause" prohibition against an official religion.
