Are any of you really
so surprised? How can you claim, with a straight-face, to be disgusted?
Why are few, if any, of the usual Liberal/Progressive ATS stalwarts not on here after 3 days?
I'll tell you why (as if you didn't know).
Twenty-first century "Progressives" will brook no dissent. You're either a player or you are not.
This is the most politically galvanizing administration since Richard M. Nixon's, and it makes him look like a piker.
Its main goal since the election has nothing to do with freedom, independence or choice; it is keeping and consolidating power and CONTROL of its
Why did Barack Obama tell his Hispanic audience in the run-up to the mid-terms: "We must punish our enemies;" -- he wasn't talking about foreign
