“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

What leftist ideology has come to fruition? Liberalism is all about protecting freedoms, anti-war, equality issues, separation of church and state and things like that. They are still pushing for such things and I suppose they are making progress in some areas, such as gay marriage, but many of those issues we all can agree on.
On the other hand, no real conservative ideologies are coming to fruition either. We have no responsibility in government, the economy is a wreck and individual liberty is becoming a thing of the past.
What we have seem come to fruition is our political atmosphere move to a fascist, neo-con agenda to perpetuate war, prop up big-money interests, take away freedoms and demonize those that dare speak against the system. Obamacare.....Obamacare is far from being a leftist program. If it was, it would be a single-pay or universal program.
Instead it's welfare for the insurance companies and the government. Buy your healthcare plan....or pay Uncle Sam.
I think most of us could agree on 75% of the issues we face these days, but we cannot do that until we agree on what is causing the problems and stop using the same rhetoric and propaganda buzzwords that we hear blasted on the TV and radio.

I expect a win for the republicans.
Then impeachment hearings, which will accomplish as much as Clinton's impeachment did, but will give everyone something to do instead of taking care of the real problems we face. Forget about what a republican controlled congress will accomplish. Ain't gonna happen.
Fund raising for 2016. Where we can all hear "give me money, so I can get elected and all your wildest dreams will come true".
Politics is real a great steaming heap.

Government sponsored healthcare will put treatment at the whim of government.
This is the same government that gave us;
This is the same government that you want to put in charge of our healthcare?
I find it somewhat ironic that daily, we complain about the evil ineptitude of government, yet turn around and place the ultimate trust of our lives in their care.
