I wonder - 2000 doesn't count, even though he won, right?


Gore speech snippets

TRANSCRIPT



"The New York Times reported that the president decided to launch this massive eavesdropping program without search warrants or any new laws that would permit domestic intelligence collection.

During the period when this eavesdropping was still secret, the president seemed to go out of his way to reassure the American people on more than one occasion that, of course, judicial permission is required for any government spying on American citizens and that, of course, these constitutional safeguards were still in place.

But, surprisingly, the president's soothing statements turned out to be false. Moreover, as soon as this massive domestic spying program was uncovered by the press, the president confirmed the story was true but in the next breath declared that he has no intention of stopping or bringing these wholesale invasions of privacy to an end.

At present, we still have much to learn about the NSA's domestic surveillance. What we do know about this pervasive wiretapping virtually compels the conclusion that the president of the United States has been breaking the law, repeatedly and insistently.

(APPLAUSE)..................................


This was in front of the AMERICAN CONSTITUTION SOCIETY, hardly a Liberal or Democratic sycophant group, nor a "Captive audience" a la Bush's military campus/base cowardice.

THe above is bolded to remind all, as I've seen a thread on it already, that there are those set to mimic the White House talking points verbatim, and twist Gore's words......WATCH the video.....READ the transcript.

One thing I don't understand about the liberal mentality.

Liberals pick and choose what part of the constitution they want to fight for, like when it comes to your constitutional right to carry/own guns, they would gladly do away w/ them or red tape the right to carry one to death.

Gore quotes the men who fought for a constitutional republic, yet the principles they lived and died for are used by him and others whenever it's convenient for them, like in this instance.

These aren't true freedom fighters, this gore and hillary chick,
they talk like one only when they know it will help their image.
then it's back on to pushing for a quasi socialist government
ie/ education, health care, commerce, and social security.

They have no shame these machevillian's.

Lots of borad brush miscatgorizations there.

LIBERAL: Gore nor the Clintons have ever been "liberals" in anything but the simplistic black & white categorizations that are the cornerstone of "conservative thinkers".

GUN LAWS: I didn't become an NRA member ( dropped due to them becoming crazy) or go thru the purchase of several firearms until the Clinton years - no problems whatsoever to purchase anything & everything I wanted. Again, strawman sparkpoints for the Right.

PICK & CHOOSE:

yet the principles they lived and died for are used by him and others whenever it's convenient for them, like in this instance.


You're not the only one who fails to hear because they don't want to listen, but Gore has been on point, consistently, with these exact themes, in all of his speaking appearences. And he hasn't been speaking to hand picked audiences who had to swear an oath of allegiance either - since when is the American Constitution Society a Liberal think tank?

It's way passed time to drop the phoney labels and listen to what the man is saying; or at least, give the due dilligence of reciprocal proofing - meaning
- Has the current party in power chosen the definition of "torture"
- of "spying"
- of "intelligence data"
- of " no bid"
- of "draft"
- of "tabulation"
- of "accounting"
- of "cronyism"
- of "payola"
- of " preparedness"

Not really. You would like to think so. I know how hard it is for you to peel your eyes back and unplug your ears when facts come out about the dark side of the clinton's. Al Gore is a hypocrite who was born w/ a silver spoon in his mouth. He wouldn't be able to assertively run this country without crawling into a little ball and crying first. This guy is an empty suit and wouldn't know how to respond in a calamity. And my own assumption is that he would just cut out more rights and tamper w/ them the way Clinton did, and the way Hillary wants to as well, to form their own kind of America (theirs w/ a K).


As I typed that yesterday I was thinking about all the dirty and unconstitutional actions and policies the clinton's did.
I don't care if your a hillary lover and want a "pretend- to- be- strong and fight- for this country" type of woman in office, she is anything but a moderate (the image she's been trying to play lately) and anything but a beliver in the principles of what makes this country great. Plus she's a con artist.

hello pot, meet kettle.


GUN LAWS: I didn't become an NRA member ( dropped due to them becoming crazy) or go thru the purchase of several firearms until the Clinton years - no problems whatsoever to purchase anything & everything I wanted. Again, strawman sparkpoints for the Right.


I don't care what membership you paid dues to or didn't. And I don't care when you decided to buy guns. Clinton put a real sour taste in my mouth after the massacre of David Koresh and his follower's. That was totally out of line, unprofessional, unconstitutional, and un American. I would of really loved to rub my sweaty arm pit all over his face back then.

From tightening the belt on freedom of speech in the media to tightening the belt on gun control laws, this Clinton character was no friend of civil liberties. He did want to pick and choose which rights people could keep, and which ones he wanted to revise for his own agenda.

Al Gore sounded like an old right republican in the speech he gave, this is what I mean by liberals taking roles that they wouldn't "naturally play"

I agree w/ what he said, but coming from him, I cannot take him seriously.
And i'll say the same thing about Bush and Cheney's speeches. They are full of giblets.

They all know freedom and the constitution are branded into American hearts, and it's a sensitive topic to address because we are all witnessing the erosion of them. They have an agenda, Gore does too, and anytime they have an agenda to push they tug at our hearts which gets us to go along w/ them. It's as if all logic and facts about these dickbeats has gone out the window. I don't get it, and I don't know when people are going to learn.

I agree w/ what he said, but coming from his mouth, I can't believe he honestly believed what his speechwriter put on those papers.

hello pot, meet kettle.


If we are to discount every politician that came from advanced social positions to ours, we wouldn't have any to vote for - face it: our system of government stopped making it possible for the citizen/farmer/land owner/patriot to get elected after the first 50 years of existense.
You mention your "assumption" - were'nt you paying attention? Or is "taint" ( not the good kind!
) something you'll extend ad infinitum?
Please, PLEASE list the rights that were stripped away and brought us to a police state circa 1992 - 2000!?!?
Also, the ECONOMIC policies enacted by Clinton were all MODERATE and bilaterally GROWTH oriented - you can not fudge that; the expansion of middle class wealth & the class itself was concurrent to the shrinking of those in poverty & on welfare AND concurrent to upper class wealth/broadbased investments. NOT LIBERAL BY A DAMN LONG STRETCH.
Social Program - if budgeting for them and not having a focus where you actively try to destroy them instead of modernizing them, is not Liberal.

Far from "kettle/pot black" bickering, just facts.....you're wrong & buying into the simplistic CON mindset.

The Branch Davidians - That FBI fiasco, drawn up & implemented by Louis "Slam Dunk" Freeh before Will Farrell (Reno) was ever on the job, is a rallying point of your ire? Check the calendar & roster of players making calls first, before...., like Ruby Ridge (Bush I), you lay it at the feet of the wrong team.

True Lies,

Are you for real man?

Your selective memory is a sight to behold.

Do you actually read what you post?

Cheers

Nygdan,

That last post is well beneath you man.

I do not always agree with you (in fact I rarely do) but at least you usually think about what you post.

In this case you have not reached your usual standard.

Look into who has the ability to arrest the President and on whom's orders they are allowed to do this and then perhaps you will see why Bush remains at liberty.

Cheers

S
