Wow. What a thread this has turned out to be.
Personally, I find a lot of what Beck says to make a lot of sense. He asks questions that most of the media seems either unable to ask or are too afraid to ask.
How about all these 'Czar's' that are not elected into office, and answer to only one man?
How about all the lies that Obama has made - not out of context? Letting us, the people, have 5 days to read and comment on any bill before it is signed by him, for example. No, now everything seems to be such an 'emergency' that that can not be done.
How about pushing through massive 1,000+ page bills in a time frame that no one has the time to read it, nor the smarts to really understand without a legal team to explain every line and how it applies to every other line? Why is it that everything needs to be done right now!!!
He really pushed for the health care/insurance reform bill to be passed and signed into law before the summer break, yet it will not even go into effect until 2013. Why the huge rush?
Beck may get into strange behavior sometimes. I think it is only because there is so much going on that it just overwhelms the mind, if one were to try to keep track of it all to put everything into some kind of coherent whole perspective.
Beck has high ratings because he makes sense to a lot of people that really believe in the Constitution and what it means and stands for.
Unfortunately, too many people have been indoctrinated out of that kind of thinking in these past few decades.
And VarekRaith, for your information, Beck debunked the rumors about the FEMA Camps. So get your info straight. I watched the shows he did on that, but obviously you didn't.
