"I was so angry about the bailouts, the lack of government oversight and stimulus money that I was actually following what was going on in the government," said Ron Phillips. "That lasted about a year and a half before I finally threw in the towel. At this point, who gives a shit? Democrat, Republican, they're all doing the same nonsense and I can't do a thing about it."

"I'm actually surprised that they were able to last as long as they did. Do you realize how screwed this government is? And we don't even reveal how bad it really is. Kudos American citizens, Kudos."
