I voted predominately Democatic and I will put my education, IQ as well as political research against yours any day of the week.


Voting democrat is simply going along with the majority, nothing special or intelligent about that. Voting republican is also a waste of time now days. The problems are way past republicans and democrats; america is stuck in stupid. Not sure if there is anything anyone can do about it.

You fall into one of the categories mentioned as fascists were Socialists.

So you’ve found yourself inheriting complete political power as the head of your national government. You’re an honest guy/gal and your intentions are clear; stick around for four or five years, fiddle every set of statistics you release, and if you do a good job the perceptive electorate will vote you back in for more of the same! You will have upheld the honourable vocation of you and your political brethren in good hands.

But perform badly, or hire some amateurish PR, and you and your party will lose the election. But what if you’re all so systematically incompetent, corrupt or unintelligent enough to bring the actual basis for big government into suspicion? This could mean that a lot of politicians, bureaucrats and public sector workers could lose their jobs; these are your people!

Don’t worry, there is a solution! Everyone knows that half the time in politics is spent trying to justify yourself; with the following tips and tricks, you can safely secure the privileged lifestyle of government, whilst also increasing employment opportunities for you and many other polite yet unproductive workers.

Make the population utterly dependent on you, Destroy consensus, Disperse, obscure, and complicate power. One final tip! Try generally to stick your fingers into everything you can, then claim further government action is necessary once you fail disgracefully: the economy, schools, policing and so on. Unbelievable, but it works!

That's worth repeating


I started this thread in Oct 2008, and things have not improved at all, can we as a nation get any dumber?

Just yesterday I registered as an independent.

Why is that republicans have such a smug arrogance and an unabashed way of shaming others into their belief systems? Republicans are all about pissing contests. Now they sit back repugnately avoiding bi-partisanship politics and continue to act like fools. No lack of humanity or responsibility to their constituents.

Democrats are wolves in sheeps clothing.

The whole two party (really one) system completely needs an overhaul.

Another one of my peeves is that if a bill passes legislation, it should focus soley on this issue at hand. Bill passing with concessions and covert language that destroy or ever eroding freedoms makes me mad as hell.

Filibustering and lobbyists are another pet peeve worthy of an entire thread.

What a corrupt country we have evolved into. Why can't we just take care of our issues in a straight forward manner and have complete transparency in all matters? Are we not Americans that are worthy of truthfulness from our leaders? Apparently not. We seem to enjoy being duped and turned into mindless Faux news watchers. Amerika the stupified.

Republicans/Democrats.....blech! Change. It ain't happening anytime soon now is it?

I agree, the far right is idiotic and the far left, the power in power now, is suicidal.

Millions of Americans speak little or no English, they don’t understand political or economic issues vital for our economy, but they can vote and usually vote Democrat

Millions of Americans are elderly and dysfunctional. Many of them don’t comprehend the issues on the ballots any more, but they can vote and usually vote Democrat

Millions of Americans are young and have minimal education. They know little if anything about our political system and nothing about how capitalism creates jobs and prosperity. But they can vote, and usually vote Democrat

Millions of Americans are college students, and have little if any experience in how money is created by small and large businesses and the importance of profits to grow jobs and expansion. But they can vote and usually vote Democrat

Millions of Americans speak and understand English, but know little if anything about Capitalism and that governments don’t create money they get it from those who do create money, which is large and small companies. But they can vote and usually vote Democrat

Democrats love socialism. Socialism loves no one. In fact, people become burdens that the state has to take care of. People become cattle and are treated like cattle, but they have health care.


The numbers of the above are growing exponentially every year. The Republican Party may be extinct.


Yeah America is stuck in stupid and getting stupider.

I only wish it were a joke.

The once super power of prospertity and democracy is becoming a joke around the world. Next time we vote for change we should read the fine print.
Oh I forgot all the billions we spend on education hasn't done much for educating our children. Yes I'm a product of the overpriced public education system myslef.
maybe we should throw more billions of taxpayer dollars into that rat hole too.

Nancy Pelosi what a gem
she knows what we imbeciles need more than we know what we need or is good for us. She and her sidekick Obama are trailblazers when it comes to ramming things down America's throat. We may not survive this democratic concoction of a medicine.

No I would not be one of the ones I mentioned, I never voted for a democrat and probably never will because they seem to hate free enterprize and anything else that creates true freedom and a life worth living.

No, how tiring does whining get? You seem to be the one doing most of it on this thread.


Any way you sould be happy about the big leftwing facist victory where their so called judge is allowing Wall Mart to be sued perhaps out of buiness. No biggy there will be other corporation that will fill in the gap if the Wall falls.

Socialist america is great, it allows people to work hard and create businseses and then lets others that hate to work and create things sue for what they want, all they need is a good lawyer. Working hard and creating things is so yesterday, and for fools.

The joke and eventual downfall of democracy is that anyone can vote, regardless of understanding issues inportant to a democracy. The leftwing understands this more than anyone else and use it to their advantage to bring down democracy. Every few generations the people have to earn back what they easily discarded. But clawing back to freedom and prosperity once it's gone, that's the fun part.

Yeah they are and the wolves seem to know how to attract and capture sheep. I guess all those billions of dollars spent in the public school system over the last few decades has paid off for the wolves.
