We are not a Socialist country.

we have the following social programs:

- social welfare (food and housing)
- social insurance for old age
- socialized infrastructure maintenance
- social benefits for minorities and women
- social benefits for corporations
- socialized medicine
- socialized education
- socialized benefit packages for college students
- a socialized propaganda department
- war paid for via socializing the cost
- socialist intelligence structures
- universities filled with socialist professors

both sides are socialist, and there is virtually no difference in their long term goals and strategies nor the form of government they wish to have. there was no difference between stalin and hitler. communism and fascism are the exact same thing,

You're simply wrong. You have an "emotional idea" of what it means to be socialist, and it means nothing. Socialism is an easily defined concept, where the WORKERS OWN THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION. American workers have pretty much zero power, zero control in the economy, something spurred on by republicans and their hatred for anyone without money and means. By definition America cannot be a socialist country, because the MOST important foundation of socialism is at total odds with the reality of America.

We are not a socialist country. We are not a capitalist country. We are a corporatist country. Until you people start realizing that there will be NO CHANGE because you don't even know where we stand how, how will you know when/how to make the first step towards something better?

Corporate Fascism is the enemy, republicans and democrats are just the pawns. Stop being one.

Thanks for the information, but in my personal case and how I follow politics I could have told you that since Obama won the second term.

But sadly, the question is "doesn't it make a difference"?, no in a million years.

Our nations politics of corruption, dirt and big pay offs, will continue regardless of who win the elections, win both houses or whatever is there to win, our nations politics will continue to deteriorate and so us as a nation.

So while many feel "hopeful" I just look with disdain.

Here is a ATS thread about Romney with some of the same posters posting

USA Today: Electoral Tracker - I See President Mitt Romney With Easy Win ...285 Electoral Votes

Honestly whoever wins we will lose.

Didn't Romney said when he was running last time that he would stop Obamacare? I was wondering, I swear that he did promised that.

I personally can't wait for the next RNC *que the circus music*.

I just hope this time they will wheel out Dick and lil' Bush so they can remind us of their 2 term accomplishments.

I remember, thanks LD, I wonder if he is promising to stop Obama if he wins the white house this time around.

once upon a time when everything was split up you could count on some level of cooperation...

Now you just get both parties screaming... NO only my pet gets moved... and nothing at all gets done.

Without cooperation we are finished..we cant keep kicking the can down the road, but with both parties ruled by petulant children we are screwed.

Both parties should be worried:

In just one week, polls found politicians of all stripes are hitting approval numbers with record lows. The president finds himself roughly as popular as a trip to the dentist. The entire Democratic Party gets the thumbs down. Oh, and so does the Republican Party.

But it doesn’t stop there. Americans are also bummed out about the future in general, especially the economy. Things are so low that even an old favorite, sugar, polled poorly.

Pollsters say it all adds up to a country that feels “everything is terrible,” as one put it, a mood that campaigns should consider as they head into the midterm homestretch, when turnout should be all about enthusiasm — not pessimism.


This next is unbelievable:

“Hagan has a -10 approval rating, and usually if you have a -10 approval rating it means you’re doomed,” Jensen said. But, he added, Hagan’s Republican challenger, Thom Tillis, “has a -23 favorability rating, so that race remains very competitive despite Hagan being an unpopular incumbent, because voters really don’t care for her opponent, either.”

Some one should do a thread on this just wow!

corporatism is the only form of socialism we've ever had on this planet.

Obama's self-proclaimed "homeboy" just went down in Hawaii', a sign of things to come.

Will Obama finally work with a Republican controlled House AND Senate?

I doubt it.

We are screwed either way....

as far as i can tell, what they do is they screw up the economy of a nation they want to monopolize. then they blame it on the people who own businesses, from the top down to the simplest shop owner. then they get the people to stage a revolution in which not only the businesses but those who work in them, are slaughtered. then they monopolize all business into the hands of a few and pretend it's the government, so you get the impression that it's the workers working for the govrenment who gives them the profits from their labor. but it's really just a few corporations who use jealousy and bigotry and bankruptcy, to cajole people into killing off their competition.

They really don't have a chance. And they could easily lose the Senate.

In fact, part of me hopes they do loose the Senate.

McConnell will most likely lose to Grimes. Even if he doesn't, Cruz will be running the Senate along with the House anyway.

The GOP has given up on winning the Presidency. They are hurtling towards a landslide kicking in 2016 as it is. With a Teabag led Senate and House for two years..........

They'd be lucky to keep one seat come 2016.

All things considered the dems should get hammered.
But the GOP has a knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Republicans can keep the house and we'll keep the White House

Checks and balances!

They need to take both houses and take it for eight years...let the people figure out how corrupt the democrats really are just as people realized how #ty the republicans are...maybe more people would wake up to the fact that it's rigged system..
