Conservative Nazi's do not know about comprise

The entire GOP plan in a nutshell :

1. Continue and guarantee that the top 10% of earners don't have to contribute a thing to the economy.
2. Continually allow the banks to do whatever the flip they want and to blindly give them another multi trillion dollar bailout package whenever they get a bug up their tail.
3. Continually send our jobs oversees which will double and triple the unemployment rates.
4. Engage us in an armed conflict with Iran and North Korea while keeping the Wars Over Energy going.
5. Deny people the basic right to essential services like Medicaid, Social Security and cancel all social programs effectively leaving those like me who are unable to hold down a 40 hour 5 day a week job to fend for ourselves!
6. Allow time and time again the poisoning of our food and water supply while protecting the companies that are harming us.
7. Kill off the electric and non petrolchemical powered transportation.
8. Allow for more foriegn influence into our process domestically (law passages, elections)
9. Kill off any non white people!
10. Kill our chance to compete on the world's stage while cutting public school education while leaving the private schools alone.
11. Turn this "War On Terrorism" into a "Holy War" between Islam-Muslim and Christian-Hebrew!
12. Allow time and time again your health insurance company the control to deny you and your family any treatment they want. < These are the real "Death Panels" a bunch of insurance company employees sitting around dictating who gets what coverage.
13. Do nothing about this immigrant issue so the multi trillion dollar lobbyists firms can contunally exploit them for cheap and dirt cheap labour all the while not demanding that any of it remains stateside all while evading the Federal Income Tax laws,
14. Allow you to lose your job and home for whatever reason your employer and lender dictates and not have the populous the right to challenge any claim.
15. Return to an era whereas an African American was legally declared 2/3 of a person and Women weren't allowed out of the kitchen, forget about having the right to own property, hold down a job, have a say in matters pertaining to thier own bodies, have the right to vote, be forced to endure consistant beatings and belittements if they didn't have dinner done in time, being subjected to forced spousal rape. Do y'all really want to subject your daughters, mothers, sisters, aunts to this? African Americans would be forced back into the cotton fields stripped of all rights, properties, jobs, and all money earned. McCain admitted this while on The View in Ear 08!

This is when "The Party of HELL NO!" dictates policy all the while protecting their wealthy donors. This has everything to do with the entire GOP, cutting social programs and eliminating them has been on the dockett since the 1970's so don't tell me this has nothing to do with the GOP.

The CONSERVATIVE DICTAITORSHIP IS THE PROBLEM AND REFUSE TO COMPRIMISE ON A THING. It's either "Their will or the highway".

The entire GOP's mantra is to make Obama a "1 Term President" and will destroy anything in this nation to achieve that goal even go as far as putting 150 Million out of work and forcing anyone who is not a rich, white, Neo Con to get cut all while striping the people and the nation of it's rights and freedoms.

The GOP will protect with life and limb the following industries :
Energy, Big Pharm, Banks, Anyone with an account worth more then $10 Million.

For y'all that want smaller Govt do not dare complain when that new tool you got to fix your house burns your skin right off because the safety regulations were abolished and do not dare complain when that new skin cream makes your skin so raw it causes an infection that costs you your limb.

Say goodbye to ABS, airbags, seatbelts, aircon, brake override systems in cars if they get their way.

Say goodbye to every single safety protection that exists if you want smaller Govt as Big Govt keeps these firms up at night living in fear.

Look at 43 and how he acted too like Hitler and let us not also forget that his granddaddy Prescott was helping fund and finance the entire Nazi movement under the guise of Thyssien, Corp during WWII so to make the Nazi GOP connection more then fits.

The GOP wants to eliminate the 14th Amendment.

Thank the Conservative dictaitorship for that for completely dismantiling every single protection out there that worked beautifully for nearly 50 yrs. It only became a problem when the individual worker had more power then the corporate bigwigs and they couldn't stand i

Look at the price of gas, food and consumer goods in other comparable developed countries with similiar economies. Many of you on ATS complain about socialism and government needs to stay out of your lives...yet here is capitalism "righting" itself with the price of gas and food going up. How do you know that this high price has always been the true price and through subsidies and governement money it had been brought to the consumer at a lower price.

I agree that people should be protesting Wall Street and the big oil companies, but if you don't actually understand what or why you are protesting, there is no point.

In Canada, we pay more for gas, food and consumer goods. That is the reason why "economy" cars have been more popular despite having a better per capita income than the states. Why the heck would I need a gas guzzling escalade to transport 2 kids around??? I think its probably a good thing that the "real" costs of things are finally being realized by the American consumer and hopefully you will be able to adapt your lifestyle to it. The rest of the developed world have years ago...


Cost of living is going up, but income is not..that makes it very hard to adapt..most of us have trimmed our lifestyle down to just about nothing and still cant get ahead ..what about the fixed income groups.most around me are living in fear of losing there jobs most are unable to afford any further price hikes..Ive also noticed alot of family run business are struggling to keep going by spending their retirement savings to pay bills to keep the doors open. Hold onto your wallet, folks, because the price pinch is going to get worse.

yea that teabagger protest was the only one in a long time in my neck of the woods. not much goin on in la, the prices are reaching 4 bucks too. i know a teabagger leader, he comes by our shop from time to time, i hold my words a lot, they're mostly concerned about eliminating taxes and deporting immigrants, yet THEIR shops are full of mexicans.

gas isn't a problem for them, but the rest of us have to work, i wish i could protest, but were not really organized over here. ill keep an eye out for rallies tho.

You are right...the cost of living has been going up and income hasn't kept pace with inflation. BUT, it has been doing this since the 80's. Americans are going to have to make some serious decisions going forward and you can expect the middle class to shrink.

As for the employment issues in the states, the blame rests solely on the American consumer. The need for cheaper and cheaper material goods has "forced" American companies over seas and south of the border looking for cheaper labour or just allowing foreign companies to produce the needed goods through free trade.

Changes in credit and what a consumer can borrow is a good start. A good example are mortgages...in Canada we have strict rules where you have to have at least 5% down and anything below 20% down, you must have mortgage insurance. The maximum number of years is 30 for a mortgage and you can only refinance a maximum of 85% of the value in the home. These rules are in place to make sure the owner can first of all afford the home and it is a reason why we didn't have the same mortgage issues as you did in the states. The risk is in the financial institutions hands, not the consumers.

If anything, you (and we) should be protesting ourselves for not being fiscally responsible and making "debt" a good thing.

I do agree somewhat that Americans did this to ourselves with big pensions, pay scales and unions. When the cost to manufacturing here is equal to or less than other countries, that sector will return maybe..
We need to quit sending jobs overseas period.. In the meantime, the millions of unemployed Americans have used up all their current unemployment benefits and millions are wondering what will become of them..Outsourcing is responsible for much of the unemployment in the United States
Credit cards haven't helped either when we run low on cash we throw it on plastic then the next thing ya know were 10 grand in debt and this i know about personally so i paid the one i have off and cut it up..sorry it took me so long to get back to you its been nuts here today

It seems to me people still have something to lose, The people in the Middle East have nothing to lose...
until the government totally ruins this country, people are not going to amass in protest. I really wish we would... I think most people are just hoping this all blows over, because we have survived bad presidents before... but this is the worst one we have ever had, I pray that these next few years go by quickly.

Unfortunately we're all too busy with our lives to take time to protest in mass. We all have long days of work, that pay us just enough to go home, eat, sleep, wake up and do it again. Some of us might have time to take a weekend and do something, but even fewer have the funds to do so.
Besides weekends are the time when our modern versions of the coliseum matches are aired: our sports games, the great American distractor. "Well work stank this week, but hey, My Team won their game this week!"
Most of us seem to have just enough to stay inside of our lil' comfort-zone. And those who are suffering currently are there to remind us of what happens if we don't work to stay in our lil' comfort-zone. The poor and unemployed are there to scare the crap out of us who do have some form of a job.
Until this county stops being able to supply jobs to the majority of Americans, we're gonna keep on going in to our underpaying dead-end jobs, thanking God that we still have a job, and turning on that sports game to take our mind off the day-to-day mindlessness that we are enslaved to.

I understand what your saying and its so true i guess were all in our little comfort zone..I was reading about a peaceful protest that took place back on October 16, 1995 i realise it was in a different time and for a different cause..but these people came out for what they believed in and joined forces..
It was the Million Man March they gathered in Washington's National Mall tens of thousands of demonstrators took part in what they believed in and for the large part it was peaceful..If we could do that i think our government would take notice..but we don't want to miss our Saturday reality show

Without taking one page out of the GOP Talking points what exactly are you against? To say, he's a Muslim or a Socialist means you unequivocally nothing to bring to the table hence why if that is the case there will not be a plate or setting be made for you.

What policy are you against exactly? What has this nation done that is so vile, disgusting that would make you be against any particular policy?

Have you lost your job due to the policy? Been kicked outta your home? Been dropped from your insurance because you got sick?

I wont get into a debate with you over this it just causes problems but this is some of the things i dont like:

He has fundamentally changed our health care system into something not capitalistic

He has spent us in a huge hole with graft and ear marks

He has constantly broken promises

He has pushed through legislation with arm twisting zeal against both the other party and 59% of the nation

He has made us less safe by cutting the military, missile defense and nuclear arms

He has made us less safe by reaching out to our enemies and avoiding our friends

He has made us poorer with his bail outs

I wont go any further with what i think id like to keep this so it doesnt turn into some hate thread
thanks for your reply

He has fundamentally changed our health care system into something not capitalistic -- Since when is profits before people the mantra?

He has spent us in a huge hole with graft and ear marks- Your loving Fuher put $13 Trillion on the card and Obama thus far has put like a quarter.

He has constantly broken promises - All promises made are to be kept even he and The WH knows this.

He has pushed through legislation with arm twisting zeal against both the other party and 59% of the nation-Patriot Act 2001 (No one was allowed to read the bill but 1 lone Senator and he was the sole vote against) ring a bell?

He has made us less safe by cutting the military, missile defense and nuclear arms -No nation shall have enough nukes or mass destruction capable weapons to annihalate the planet 50 times over. Just because Defense or the Intel Alphabet Groups is getting less money now don't mean jack squat as each more then can afford and sustain just about every operation currently ongoing and then some.

He has made us less safe by reaching out to our enemies and avoiding our friends - So war is the exclusive end all, be all solution to everything? So sorry, if that was the case we would've been wiped from the planet by now with a militarial equal for which there are 2. When we all come together great things do in fact happen and have you noticed that there is a global downtick in terrorism events? Only limited to Afghanistan and occasionally Iraq. Beyond that, the last attack outside of both and the Middle East in general was in the Mumbai attacks.

He has made us poorer with his bail outs - The banks made all of us poorer because they are scum sucking weasels who want it all.

I wont go any further with what i think id like to keep this so it doesnt turn into some hate thread
thanks for your reply

First OP right off the bat. Whats going on in this country doesn't call for any foot stomping, slogan shouting and
signage. I've never seen any use for protesting. TPTB prolly just kick back and laugh, watching their home movies
of, what ever goon squad gets deployed to kick their azz They prolly love it.

It's not effective at all. Pretty sure they want us to think it is though. I know if I were in their shoes I would be thinking somrthing like:

Oh look the common folk are up in arms again. My they look really mad this time, Oh! their holding their bresth.


You ever notice, that in France when the people take to the streets, there isn't much protesting. When they get to the streets. They drop the signs and it turns nasty in hardly anytime. They don't go out to protest. They just go straight to full on riots. Those people lose their fricken minds. I think that's just about the only nation on earth, where the govt. fears it's people.

With damn good reason too. You see the french know exactly, the only thing TPTB understand. Is violence.
Louis the Sixteenth is why they're feared. The fear is still there today. For those who might not know, The King of France was put to the guilotene by the french people. I think it was the sixteen hundreds but don't quote that.
