"There's class war alright. But it's my class that's making the war. And we're winning it." - Warren Buffet
You don't get to vote for the party that supported, and legislated government forced vaginal probes, and then claim to oppose Obama because he represents "increased government control, and power".
Czern, do yourself a favor and put the Carygrunt nut case on ignore.
Who thinks we're moving towards, your words, "stalinistic socialism?" What is that, anyway? Stalin was a communist dictator. See "Animal Farm" for how that actually works.
Well, I was born in the sign of water,
And it's there that I feel my best,
The albatross and the whales they are my brothers.
~Excerpt from Cool Change, Little River Band~
Countries are not defined by geography, although that is a factor. They are defined by culture and shared values. The truth of it is that the left coasts do not share the same values as the heartland, nor are they likely to do so. Because of the peculiarities of electoral mapping, they are forcing their values on the rest of us. I'm ready to part company with them. The "United" States are not united and unlikely to become so, any more than the now defunct Soviet Union. Things are not going to turn around with the country being run off the east coast from a city of insular leftists and polite thieves.
There comes a time in the affairs of man when you have to face reality. The reality is, this isn't a country anymore. It is two very different cultures, one of which is forcing itself on the other.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence."
— George Washington
"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it."
— Mark Twain
"You want to get rid of drug crime in this country? Fine, let's just get rid of all the drug laws."
— Ron Paul
Actually, GRC, the reference was the constitution as a "flexible" document, which is pretty much the same thing as "fuck it, we won, you lost." And that, unfortunately, is where lies the foundation of failure of the entire program. Note that in the above referenced "Animal Farm" it was the pigs who got to live in the nice warm house.
As a flexible document, Obama has proven himself what he is, a cheap ward healer, tossing out brightly wrapped toys for the masses so that they adore him.
Let's face it. Entitlements are ugly. But they work; votes can and are bought, often for as little as a cell phone and at one time for the cost of whiskey; why do you think most states banned bar openings until after the polls closed?
Sometimes democracy is a painted whore.....but until there's an alternative she's all we have.
