Democrats, At what point will you say our Federal Government has over-reached their boundaries? State, National, International, posted by Chris, a resident of the Amador Estates neighborhood, on Aug 14, 2011 at 8:10 pm
In your opinion, Democrats, what are the limits of our Fed Government?
At what point will you say the Federal Government has too much control over our lives?
What are the boundaries here?
I am very curious to hear your sincere answers if you are a Democrat.

When I realized that the unions control the democrats. The democratic party is a shell of it's former self and the unions have a lot to do with that - at least in California. Where is the social agenda now? It's been hijacked. How many social programs have been eliminated, or or on the verge of being eliminated, to help fund public sector union/public servants compensation, ballooning pension costs, and almost completely unfunded retiree healthcare.
The truth is the public sector unions control the democratic party in CA, and our elected officials have given away the house. It is beyond disgusting; the reason I'm a former Dem.

I am not a dem, but I can tell you in my opinion that the Feds have reached their limits when they allow 1% of the rich elite to earn more that 60% of the American public with the ability to hide their dough overseas. In addition, bailing out the rich like Goldman Sachs as their top guys rake billions of dollars in bonuses each year. There is no limit it seems what the Congress will do to allow the rich to get richer at the middle class expense. Congress points the finger at everyone but the top 1%. I don't think Obama will be a candidate for POTUS, so it's going to be interesting when there is no one to blame for the status of the middle class that's getting the raw end of the deal while everyone's turning a blind eye.

Chris, what are your thoughts about the democratic US military who recently died in a shot down helicopter in Afghanistan?
Do you suppose that some of the military that lost their lives in Afghanistan were registered democrats or were they all registered republicans/or members of the Tea Party?
How come you don't believe that they deserve to be treated respectfully, even though they died for the USA? Do you truly believe that registered democrats who have died serving their country in a combat zone are not worthy a full military burial?
I'm shocked by your hardness? How did that happen to you?
