...man, wtf happened? You had it in the bag and could not explain any of these plans well or didn't for one reason or another... hell if you would have just explained your socialism logically and thoroughly and in depth incorporating why the current time lends itself to it via technology... you could have achieved much better results... then you wouldn't have to rely on single issue minority voters (who don't necessarily get along)...

Meh...

Star and flag. They had their chance and you are right they blew it. Even the things they brag about getting done, are so polluted that you can even call them liberal. I think the problem is that they are not liberals, they just call themselves that for political points. Looks like the electorate has them figured out. Let's do something, anything, that shows you still care about the people. That goes to the other side of the floor as well.

liberals screwed up wanting more gun rights and were cool on abortion. [not cool at all !! ]
I think the time has come to dump all parties and their labels.

Yep, they blew it. Is anyone really shocked?

Both parties will continue to "blow it" because they are in it for their own agendas. Be it more power, money, recognition, fame, etc. Too much infighting and greed will continue to divide the house, and a house divided will fall.

They repeatedly turn a blind eye to this. So concerned with being right, being re-elected, or the desire to be seen as the savior of America not one will awaken and see what they are doing is destroying our country.

I don't see anyone not "blowing it" in our government atany time in the near future.

Political parties are tearing America apart. If only representatives stop caring about themselves and focused on the real problems, something would get done. That will never happen though, wealth and power is just too tempting for them. It shouldn't matter whether your a democrat or a republican, it should matter whether your willing to represent the people of the United States. This country is doomed.

The citizens and taxpayers (not always the same group but plenty of overlap there) all want about 90% the same things. Affordable food, decent homes, gas that won't take a second mortgage for a tank and some freaking jobs that used to be done here in this country.

That's about 90% agreed on all over this country. Voters are all pretty much on the same page. Big, real, issues.

We seem to have let the other 10% of the issues (about 5% each way) decide our vote. These issues being essentially special interest issues.

The problem is that the dammned special interest issues have virtually nothing to do with the original 90% that we all need and agree on. What's worse is that while we've been busy hating and attacking each other over 10% we will never EVER agree on, the politicians have made off with the original 90% that actually matters most.

Did that make any sense?

I'm sorry.

Where's Ross Perot? We need a pie chart in here.

Yes, it made sense to me anyway. I actually really liked Perot. I wasn't old enough to vote at that time but I remember he made sense as well... atleast to me.

Thank the Conservative Dictatorship for this whereas the only thing allowed to get pushed through is that of TPTB, NWO or the ultra Neo Nazi conservatives.

Thank the conservatives for the dems doing these huge mysterious power-grab bills? Uh what? They didn't even attempt to explain it whatsoever.... or anything else..

To say the libs blew it takes away a lot of well deserved, well earned credit from the right wing and FOX who worked their butts off turning fear on its head and creating a paranoia the likes of which has never been seen by a mainstream outlet.

FOX News could make Jesus look like a prostitue loving socialist nazi, they're so good at what they do...

Give credit where credit is due... Libs may suck at winning, but FOX and Right-wing terrorist/fear spin is absolutely amazing at dividing a country.

Why did this word seem to vanish from our media vocabulary?

Oh please, all of this could have easily been avoided if they:

a) wouldn't have banked on obamas cult factor- this is probably the most out of touch and laughably idiotic facet of their failure despite having massive media collution

b) the either woudln't or couldn't explain rationally, in detail, what and why they wanted to do what they did with these massive bills. it is ridiculous and insulting the airtime they put into getting into office then absolutely zero time into explaining any of this

c) the spending... they ware for the working people but they will not explain the monetary system to them JUST LIKE THE RIGHT WING
....

I could go on but I just demotivated myself... The NWO needs to just come get me to join them because quite frankly none of this matters since prolly 85 percent of humanity is too stupid or unwilling to see what is happening... but maybe that's good... then again I'm pretty buzzed atm.

I applaud your thread for a simple reason or two...

Although I dispise the liberals and what they did do... You have a good point a very good point...

Elenor Roosevelt traveled the country supporting the New Deal and brought in the people directly to FDR.. obama care cost them...

He lost face and it was a lot of it... we may disagree on it but he could have been better organized in his PR campaign...

eliminating the single issue voters would have been a great idea...

he also faces this...



People have a negative associated with him... a huge one....

good point... s and f

I don't like liberalism (at least not the extreme almost parody version it is now) either but the thing is if the right isn't going ot fight them properly (ie the prom date seating and other things) and the left isn't going to explain wtf they're doing then f it... ok now I want my 32 hour socialist workweek, my healthcare money back etc.... I mean they want us to have socialism but we don't even get any of the good "bene"s. I already have health care... so now I have health care.. again- that my or may not have a drastic effect on scientific progress. I work all the time... I am a vet but now vet level benefits are given to whoever defaults on a loan or whatever... this kind of stuff... not to say I'm on a soapbox but... I mean everyone that works is still working thier ass off yet we are in decline? I mean, no one knows wtf is going on and the media just can't stfu long enough for the actual gov't to get a word in edgewise... but hell maybe they are the same entity more or less... bah

While I am a conservative Constitutionalist, and sometimes believe liberalism truly is a mental disorder...I gotta say the Republicans had control for many years under Bush and did nothing but increase government, increase spending, and decrease our rights...that is why I am no longer a Republican btw...

You are thinking in the short term...let me know your thoughts after 2012...Negative campaigning, smears and filibustering is only tolerated for so long by the American people.

The liberal party was hi-jacked by the progressive movement. Same for the republican side, only we call them RINO's.

True democrats and conservatives have most things in common. Details may differ, but it is the progressive movement that has turned this country on it's head. I won't be a part of the republican party anymore (not since Bush and TARP) and joined the Tea Party instead. I just hope that stays true to form, and is not co-opted by republicans.

I definitely agree and believe liberals, progressives, democrats, republicans, and neocons have blown it big time. I wouldn't give a nickel for the whole lot of them.

I'm still holding onto hope for true conservatives and libertarians, though. I still believe in them but I'm not sure how much success they will have in our brainwashed society.
