Anderson Cooper hosts John Avlon, author of Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America, who really seems to have a problem when it comes to anyone who dares challenge the government’s version on … more or less anything:

  1. wow what morons!!!!!!!

  2. I think it's completely sane to hate the current government. I understand our societies need for a government but this government needs to be destroyed and replaced. It has nothing to do with conspiracy. The things they do out in the open are enough.

      If you had said this anytime during the previous administration I would see your point, but I fail to see what Obama has done to earn all this hatred.

        he has done nothing, that's the problem,
        the real problem with our government really has nothing to do with who is the current figurehead,
        the problem is that it is organized in such a way that requires corruption before you are allowed to participate.

      • He's perpetuating a failing and corrupt system. He's expanding US imperialism. A lot of the hatred towards him is ignorant and racist, i will agree. But that does not take away from the fact that he is the head of the largest capitalist empire in the world. Plus, I said it's ok to hate the current government, not just Obama or even his administration but the whole state and system.

      No, what needs to happen is that the corporate welfare system needs dismantled. the american system is paralyzed, not because of “government inaction”, but because of the selfish interests of the super-rich. If you really cared about this you would have been “fighting the power” back when Ronnie Raygun was touting his bullshit across the country. Instead, you choose an easy target in a difficult time. Yeah, good job on that, coward. If you want to make a difference, DO it. Right now, you're part of the problem, and your solution will bring about nothing more than the continuance of the slave state.

      • well I can't say I was old enough to have a really coherent political thought, seeing as though I was under 10, when Reagen was around but nice try though.
