Who is doing what again???

Show me the liberal progressives in this picture and I will show the representation of true American heroism, not the sick "cancer" you claim is at work.

I agree with Havok and anyone serious about the political climate and what it's become over the past few generations should examine and take a hard look into what each of us think we are fighting against.


It couldn't be any more counter-productive than to think in terms of democrat/republican or progressive/conservative. What we think these parties stand for no longer exists and hasn't for a long time. To be "behind" one or the other is like choosing Peppermint Patty over Charlie Brown as your favorite Peanuts character.


Both sides are deeply entrenched (and have been for many decades) in a campaign that is methodically designed to destroy constitutional government and degrade the society that wants to keep the Constitution alive. Once that's accomplished, a highly centralized, socialist state can be established with the full economic backing and power of the global financiers who control the interest and issuance of monies in each country to begin with.


The absolute enemy of the global-power-establishment, pulling both parties strings, are Constitutional concepts of limited government, rights of property, state rights, problem solving at the local level and minimal government intervention.


Contrary to what mainstream media peddles, BOTH parties are instrumental in this program, it is not the conservatives defending us from the progressives or vice-versa.


People think one is "better" at providing jobs or bringing about an economic recovery. However the ultimate goal being accomplished (while waving promises of jobs and recovery in front of us) is to create severe social dislocation and violence while increasing pressure at the top, from the executive branch of Federal government, to be given massive power to solve these problems.


Then the cycle of proposed social legislation involving many billions in expenditures is executed to allow the global establishment the opportunity to continue its accumulation of power and resources to further build up its super-rich, globalist machine.


Neither party is a party for the Constitution. What is needed above all else and more than ever is some kind of American Constitutional Party 100% dedicated to the protection of the constitution, a dismantlement of the monopolistic power structure in control of both political parties, and control of our own money system; to name but a few obstacles.


How can strategies like political partisanship battles on TV and in the media even be on the radar when faced with problems of this magnitude? Can we even find individuals with the mental fortitude and resources (on the public stage) to even acknowledge the existence of these problems while being expected to do something about it?

If the Democrats are Communists than I'm Jesus Christ.


So some lunatic Tea Party fringe morons, some whom call themselves "rodeo clowns", claim that the Democrats are Socialists/Communists and all of a sudden it's truth. Even though if you ask anyone in the world who isn't mentally capacitated, completely partisan or starving for ratings, if the Democrats are Socialists/Communists and they would tell you simply, "NO".

The Communist Party of America did not mean that the Democrats are Communists but rather that they are glad the Right-wing lunatics known as Republicans were out of power. Anyone on the left would be thrilled that the Democrats beat the Republicans any day.

As for their Progressive label according to a Gallup poll even 7% of Republicans and Conservatives consider themselves Progressive. So the Progressive label spans the spectrum, although the concentrated Progressives are Center-Left.

I'm going to go with the second guy from the right. The Short one with glasses.


I got your point though. We are all Americans and Progressives/Liberals are some completely different group of people, they are just Americans.

Sounds to this interested outsider like you are categorically demonising the left, sorry to be pedantic, but you clearly blame the left thus "demonising" them and falling for adding to the great divide and rule project of your elite.

I'll just fire one across your bow with regards what your Conservative "RightWing" has done to destroy this country with the 8 years America endured under the Bush Regime.

America - in essence - became a fascist dictatorship under Bush with the plethara of unconstitutional Legislation he enacted that is being profusely expounded upon by the current regime.

People like you harp on topics of disinformation while the real issues are being distracted from by your "left this", "right that" distraction.

It's no longer a Left or Right issue, it's about a foriegn entity that has got America by the Throat that's playing this left and right agenda to blind America from the real issue at hand - and YOU are here to play the game with them...


What are you going to do about it?


First, I'm going to expose you for what you are (which I just did... )

Next, I'm going to NULLIFY the enslaving legislation that seeks to destroy me, by being active in MY STATE'S legislative process to try to ensure American Rights and Constitutional Principles will prevail over these fascist dictators we've somehow allowed into office.

george bush did not require any american ever to buy something he thought they needed.

it wasnt george w bush who created hundreds of governmental agencies answerable to only him.

it wasnt george w bush who armed the irs.

im sure the patriot act is in there somewhere in that statement but i havent seen any news about it being repealed.

Hey, thanks for referring to me as cancer because I believe that, as humanity evolves, so should our policies, values, and ideas. Having one set of rules and guidelines for all of eternity is not very practical. If this were the case, blacks would still be slaves. I still would not be able to vote because I am a woman.

edit to add: I notice you complain about the left always blaming conservatives and bush for everything while you blame the left and Obama for everything. You also claim the left offers no solutions. I did not see any in you OP.

Forget discussing the left and right OP. You should worry about what's going on in your head if you think we're at war with Yemen and Pakistan. Get some counseling (OFF the internet).

I didn't say it. They did! I didn't just happen to hear about it in the media,it's pretty well documented over the years.

And who cares,right? This country is falling apart faster than we can type. It doesn't matter who gets the blame. There's enough guilt to go around.

You bring up an interesting topic here
There were many anti-war protests
Now there are none even though TWO MORE COUNTRIES have been added to the list of invasions, Yemen and Pakistan, under Obama's clock.

Where are the anti-war protests though?

This leads me to believe that those anti-war protests were not full of anti-war people but anti-republican people.

If you could show me some logic that suggests otherwise I would apreciate it.

Correct!
And what do you do when you have a collapsed economy caused by overspending? You spend more right?
That's what Obama did, he increased military budget by 11% which means trillions and not to mention all those bailouts.

Oh ya and 2 wars, so what do you do when you have two wars? You multiply it by 2 and now it's 4 wars, Pakistan, Yemen, Afghanistan and Iraq.

But poor Obama right???

Thanks for the explanation!!


Let me get this straight you think US involement in Pakistan and Yemen began under Obama? Are you joking? I suggest you do a little research on that. But if you want to add them then you should say he was handed 4 wars. And yes as I have said historically the way nations deal with economic depressions is by stimulus spending. Its all a government knows to do. Maybe you noticed Bush started the stimulus and that just about every nation on earth has also done the same. If you want to hate Obama and the left then you have the right. You should not feel the need to make things up to support that belief.

No,what has become a cancer to the nation are the people who are so locked into the left/right con. Both parties have tapped into the sports-fan mentality of a majority of the people in this country that it has become impossible for anything to get done in DC,not like the Repulicratic party has any interest in solving any of the nation's problems and anyone who thinks that either party has any real ideas to bring the country together are foolin themselves.

People blindly voted for Obama in the "hopes" of uniting this country, now the country is more divided than it has ever been in history.
No it's not because a non-white is in power but because of the liberal agenda.

From complete idiots like Rachel Maddow to Keith Olbermann to representatives like Alan Grayson and progressive democrats.... all they do 24/7 is partisan bickering.

Bush this, bush that, the right this, the right that, conservatives this conservatives that all while offering No solutions whatsoever!!

Bicker bicker and bicker, divide the country all while offering no solutions at all, isn't that the wet dream of any dictatorship?

All I see coming from the left is partisan bickering, so huge like i've never seen before, almost like they are a bunch of zombies.
I don't know if the left drinks a different type of kool-aid or something, but they are all acting like mindless zombies with absolutely no purpose in life.

They are becoming the cancer of the country!

How can progressives consider themselves progressive with zero progress?

Now keep in mind, I do not usually talk, post or much less make a thread about either the left or the right, but here I thought I should because it's becoming important.

And all while the country is going down the drain, Obama is socializing the nation, stimulus money is being sent for offshoring the best the left can do is go to gay rights rallies????????????

Are you serious??????????????

I just cannot believe the level of zombie-like thinking that is affecting the country right now, and it seems like no one cares.

I also believe Glenn Beck is a double agent paid by Dems, but that's for another thread.

What are you going to do about it?


OP, this is pretty selective thinking and memory on your behalf.

It seems to me that the right had it out for my savior since the get go -

I mean when that old lady proclaimed to Mccain

"HE'S, HE'S an ARAB..."

That says it all - the unreasonable aspects of this division were based upon the popular rights de Americanizing
media campaign.

Isn't it JUST an marvelous Coincidence that Obama has been pegged as everything that xenophobes hate.

I mean who would have thunk it...

Literally, Obama is the embodiment of all evil, he's a homo, Muslim, Black Panther, Maoist, illegal immigrant all rolled into one - absolutely brilliant!!!

So give us a break about who did the dividing here, I could not fathom a more dilluded argument if I tried to be
a manipulative liar. The scary part thou all of you is, you can not even recognize the pattern you guys fulfill -

TERROR

FEAR

9/11

to

GOLLY CLEM HES A GAY STALINITER MUSLIM ILLEGAL

It's a #@%@# joke - pre school bogey man abound...

If you guys would just get a hold of your rational,,, but it's futile, look in the mirror buddy

If anyone is paying attention to the news, the Republican voters this time around consists of Democrats, Independents, and Republicans. As a result of voter rage and discontent, the Tea-Party movement is reforming the Republican party. We will have to wait and see their impact. Regardless about the overall outcome from tonight's primaries, the Republican party will never-ever look like what it did during the Bush Administration.

It will be interesting to see what happens tonight and in November.

New Guards = New Republican Party = No More Excuses.
