I hope you are not being serious. In the conflict between the British and the American Colonies...the British/Loyalists were the Conservatives. The Colonies/Founding Fathers were the Liberals.

Pfft, there shouldn't be one person that should feel the need to. After all, we are all created equal by our Creator are we not?

The Founding Fathers were intelligent Liberals that got lucky in many ways. Do you realize just how easily our history books could have a small chapter on the American Rebellion that would end with Washington being hung along with the other Founding Fathers?

Many estimates have it that 20% of the population in the colonies at the time were conservative Loyalists to the crown. Thank goodness for liberal Revolutionaries right?

"Are you saying the founding fathers erred???"

In that one branch of Govt can ignore another branch an error...then yes.

"In forming a successful government that has been the envy...."

Blab balb blab...yes ys, the world loves out for of govt but that doesn't mean it's perfect by any means.

"Where do you liberals come up with this nonsense???"

Not a liberal.

"Go tell the war veterans..."

The sacrifice of veterans does not make the form of govt they fight for any better or worse. There were many veteranbs of the SS that fought just as hard for their govt but that didn't make it more perfect.

"that you do not appreciate"

Of course I appreciate it. I'm just telling the fact that there are problems with it.

"YOU DO NOT DESERVE FREEDOM since you do not VALUE IT"

One..I do value it. Second, valuing it doesn't mean one doesn't deserve it. Merely being a citizen means you deserve it.

"""The fault lies with the Founding Fathers that set such a system up."""

Where do you liberals come up with this nonsense??? Go tell the war veterans they have been sacrificing for a crappy way of life that you do not appreciate !!!

"Whose fault is it when.."

The fault lies with the Founding Fathers that set such a system up.

The fault lies with the Dems for not approving the reasonable ones...if any of those proposals are reasonable that is.

The fault lies with the Republicans for failing to get their message out to the masses and not just their small base.

Whose fault is it when the republicans have sent in proposals after proposals only to see them lay on Reids desk or Barry deny them and then blame them for causing all the problems..

The 2 previous posts of mine are the language in the lawsuit. Did you even care to read them???

So far, the Judical Branch and the Legislative Branch of our govt has given our President the leeway to do what he has done.

Now what it really at fault here? The President or our Govt as a whole?

Lol..if their is ever a "King Barry" it will be due to the incompetent behavior in Congress.

If the Republicans really think he is breaking the law then they need to do something about it..something real. Why sue the man when you have the power to impeach him? But they are too cowardly to do that or more likely they want their person to have that kind of power when they are the President.

"A liberal commentator said that you can not impeach someone for simply being incompetent. That is why they are suing him."

So, basically put...they don't like him and they are getting back at him.

Obama's comments in January that 2014 would be a "year of action" to implement his priorities, which he said he would do "with or without Congress" by using his "pen and the phone." "Such a shift in power should alarm members of both political parties because it threatens the very institution of the Congress," said a GOP-written report accompanying the legislation.

Republicans have objected that Obama has twice delayed the law's so-called employer mandate, which he did under pressure from business groups. The provision requires companies with 50 or more employees working at least 30 hours weekly to offer health care coverage or pay fines, while businesses with fewer than 50 workers are exempt. The requirement was initially to take effect this year. Now, companies with 50 to 99 employees have until 2016 to comply, while bigger companies have until next year. Republicans say there are other examples of Obama exceeding his powers. These include failing to notify Congress in advance when he traded five Taliban members held at the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for the captive Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, and unilaterally preventing the deportation of some children who illegally immigrated to the U.S. They also point to Obama's comments in January that 2014 would be a "year of action" to implement his priorities, which he said he would do

July 30, 2014 • AP - Republicans are ready to muscle through the lawsuit against President Barack Obama that accuses him of exceeding his powers in enforcing his health care law. Republicans say the House's planned legal action is warranted because Obama has violated his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws. They say that instead, he has enforced laws as he wants to, dangerously shifting power to the presidency from Congress. "It is to preserve this country, the separation of powers and the rule of law," said Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C. The lawsuit will focus on how Obama has carried out his health care overhaul, a 2010 law that is one of his most prized domestic achievements and that every GOP lawmaker opposed. Republicans say Obama has illegally changed the law using executive actions. The White House and Democrats say he's acted legally and within the latitude he's empowered to use as chief executive. In particular, Republicans have objected that Obama has tw

Maybe it is an election year: The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal. Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

Now all of a sudden Obama thinks our veterans deserve better? Why now and not five years ago?
