Liberalism is a lot closer to socialism than anything around today. Socialism on a grand scale has failed repeatedly over history...the latest attempt will prove to be just as big a failure, assuming we can recover from the last 6 years and the next two to come.
As for as several of your examples, Republicans passed the civil right bills, dragging Democrats down the aisle with them. Democrats have screwed up public education with the Dept. of Education so badly that we rank lower in the world than we ever did before it existed.
Graduated tax rates that only graduate upward and still outspending even those increases. The word budget, let alone balanced does not appear to be in the Democrats lexicon.
Democrats are all for redistribution of the wealth of the wealthy, but they still have no answer for what happens when they have redistributed all that wealth? Who would fund their campaigns?
World War II, Vietnam, and Korea all started under Democrats; Vietnam expanded beyond reason and belief under Democrats. Explain again how liberalism is good for us?
If Liberalism is what everyone wants, why did liberals lose the mid-terms?
The key is that those folks, the natives, are not natives. Now granted it was a long time before the Europeans got here, but they were also immigrants from another land or don't you believe in anthropology? Additionally there were no immigration laws then, we invented them as we went along. Where would you be living today if this country had not grown to it current and past greatness? You don't really have the capacity to consider such deep thoughts do you?
And yet again, you can't speak to anything about the recent past or the future, just the far and long ago history that you think you understand.
Still a one trick pony.
Harry has never been anything but a politician in his life, how do you suppose he got so rich? Was he investing in a strong economy? Did the companies he invested in make him that four letter word for Democrats, 'rich'? Did those companies prosper and provide jobs? They say you can't and shouldn't get rich on a public servants wages, but he and many others have accomplished just that, and while in office, not just on great jobs when they lost an election.
That alone should prove how corrupt our government has become. People don't run to becomes a 'public servant', they run for the power and the potential money that will come their way. They are no more interested in the public good than the man in the moon, unless of course that interest hits their bank account or gets them a better paying job and retirement.
Unfortunately there is too much truth in Debbie’s post. There are good guys on both sides and bad guys on both sides. Apparently the nation has decided that there are more bad guys on the liberal side as of today.
The test is going to be if the Republicans can get anything moving in Congress, good or bad...almost anything will be better than the logjam Dirty Harry has produced. Republicans will be tested to see if they can get the economy moving, jobs being built, and some respect for our system of government. Unfortunately some of them will insist on keeping up the pressure of the investigation of all his ‘crisis’ when they mean little now with respect to the President, although it would be nice to see some of these criminals in jail.
The challenge Obama is going to face is to see if he can be a leader, which to this point he has failed to establish and to fight off all the 'dead duck' attitudes he is going to get from our enemies. They know he will have a less power now and they will push this issue in his face. There is little respect for him world wide as a leader of any consequence and it is only going to get worse unless she steps up and decides to act in the best interest of the United Sates and not his legacy and his Party.
Unfortunately, unlike his predecessor, he will not go quietly into that good night, he will remain vocal and obnoxious long after he is out of office.
It is going to be interesting times ahead.
And so is this inane, childish, lack of intelligence repeated and repeated response. Is this the best you can do?
Oh, you mean one of those that Obama likes to court and will break the laws of the land to allow them to stay in our great country. One of those? You racist.
Harry Reid has blocked over 300 pieces of legislation passed by the house from ever coming up for vote. I thought the process was to debate it, discuss it, attempt to compromise it and then vote and see where the truth actually stood? Harry only allows a vote on what he knows will win. Now you want to talk about the past, let’s...let’s talk about the past 6 years.
The IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the stupid comments by our President about local matters he knew little or nothing about. The NSA, ObamaCare and the illegal changes to a bill passed by Congress, well a few of them anyway.
How about the decisions by the President and the AG to simply ignore and not enforce laws passed by Congress? Let’s do talk about the past. Come on Lady Echo, or Ricky or whichever name you hiding behind today. Why do discussions about those topics? Too recent for you, or too shameful?
This isn't racists, a black lady (using that term rather loosely) said it. Blacks never say anything racists, only whites. Haven't you been reading the papers or watching TV lately?
If the Democrats lose control of Congress, you watch how many 'crisis' are developed by the Democrats and insist on special prosecutors and immediate investigation. Anything to distract from their loss and to keep people from talking about the real concerns and problems for the American people. The Democrats still don't want to change anything and will still attempt to block any vote they don't already have the winning numbers for. They don't debate, they don't compromise, they don't cross any aisles, they insist on winning or not allowing a chance to lose to get off the ground. Harry has done his job, but he will be replaced and they will be in trouble and Harry will become lost in the shuffle.
He hasn't lost sight of anything. He wanted the middle class destroyed because they voted Republican. He wanted more folks on welfare and food stamps and on the government funded health care. He wanted this because that makes those idiots voters that supported this no nothing clown beholden to him and Democratic Party. He wants all those illegals to be legal so they will vote for their 'saving' Party.
He forgot the old 'give a man a fish or teach him to fish' adage, he wants to just keep giving them more fish. He and others like him that debase the rich and successful still have provided no answer to the question of 'what do you do when the rich are broke'? They don't think that is a problem because of their tunnel vision...a vision that says 'we must win at all costs' because the politicians that think this way are part of the rich that don't have to suffer the 'costs.
And the Democrats started the 'war on poverty' over 50 years ago and are still losing the war even though they controlled Congress for most of those years. How do you explain that? How do you explain the current idiot in charge telling us the economy is getting better, it is good, it is better than 6 years ago while unemployment, the number of folks looking and can't find jobs and the number of those on food stamps is the highest in our history, not just in total numbers but in percentage of our population?
If the autopsy results are correct, along with Grand Jury witness testimony, THE AG will NOT show up. He has already made a fool of himself and won't do it twice on the same subject. Stupid Al and lazy Jesse will however go there just to stir up some more riots and see if they can get a contribution to their church?!?!? It’s their job, it’s their only job.
Billary has opened her mouth and let her foot fall out yet again. She is repeating the same old tired and insincere line of her President, mentor and that of a rather dim-witted Congressional candidate that if you have a nice, successful business, you didn’t build that. You used all the road, education systems, municipal systems that are paid for by all the taxpayers. Your dreams and hard work and ambition are nothing without the rest of us. I the role of providing a customer base, I guess they are correct. However that hardly should diminish the work and desires of those that become successful.
Yes, they did. However most of those that have been successful at their dreams are working, or have worked and contributed to their society in doing so have contributed tax dollars to that infrastructure, that have contributed to those schools and paid for those roads. By working for a company that provides a product or service to its market community, which if successful provides additional jobs and futures for others, or they have started their own business and are doing the same, albeit often on a smaller scale to contribute to their communities. They have contributed by providing jobs, incomes, money to be spent in paying taxes and being spent in their local economies to sustain or build new growth.
Now, there are those that don’t or won’t work. They use these same roads, they often but too often not to the fullest extent, use the schools and other infrastructure. What have they contributed to their local economy and society? What have they done enhance their local communities? If you’re going to fault someone that is successful for really not doing it on their own, what can be said for the slackers and takers of our society? They used the same roads, taxpayer benefits as those that have added to their communities and have added little or nothing. The liberals have been trying to save them for decades, but their number continues to increase.
