I would suggest that those who laugh at folks like Mr. Beck should remember that it was not too long ago that we were all laughing at the chances of a South Side of Chicago street organizer taking the top spot in the country.I make no bones about the fact that I am a Libertarian (actually a Jeffersonian Liberal but no one would understand what I was talking about so I will stick with the Libertarian moniker for the time being).What scares the heck out of people like me is that the political activism of today appears to be coalescing around two very distinct and diametrically opposite poles.I would hazard a guess that we are entering into a period similar to that period just prior to the “war between the states.”No one on either side is listening.No one on either side is willing to compromise.No one on either end of the spectrums of political thought is bothering to consider what the ramifications of their strident philosophical positions might bring to this country.Marx (no not the Marx with the mustache) was right when he said that we would collapse from within rather than from anything communism would bring to bear.We, all of us, don’t know how good we have it but we sure know how to complain about how **** up the next guy is for not agreeing with us.

That's a bit of a "snarky" comment to make. When Obama ran for President he was a US Senator. Being a community organizer was just part of his past. For 12 years he was a Professor of Constitutional Law. He was an Illinois State Senator befor becoming a US Senator. So, I don't know who was laughing at his chances. I DO know we laughed at Palin's chances of becoming VP but I doubt anyone ever thought Obama was laughable. That's like saying Reagan was only a movie actor (and a B one at that). Actually, I DID laugh when I heard he was running.
As far as no one on either side is listening - not true. IMO the President is wasting time by trying to do things in a bipartisan manner. Republicans are determined to say "NO" to anything he proposes on any topic whatsoever.
I don't "laugh" at Beck....even though he's a buffoon - he's a dangerous buffoon.
