Well just to go off at a wee tangent
vis-a-vis reasoned arguments / the truth etc
what did that lying cunt Clinton tell the world
"I did not have sexual relations with Monica Lewinski"
Well if I tried to tell the wife that some other woman was giving me a blow job
But hey its not sexual relations -- right??
so Bear sometimes semantics / clever words are only another way of lying
Never mind Chappaquidic ( however it is spelled)
So what exactly does the Democratic party stand for??
Puzzled

The whole crux of the Glenn Beck rant was this is Congress trying to meddle in stuff they know not much about. Regulation, deregulation no matter. They (republicans and democrats) are not equipped to deal with this. Career politicians just want to stay in power. If they fix anything then they won't be able to "help" people with handouts.

This is my central belief. The Democrats want big government and aren't afraid to tell you this. The Republicans just want to compromise and so they end up giving in to what Democrats demand unless the People rise up like they did with the Amnesty for illegal aliens and the Drill here, Drill now movement.

This is why we need to vote the bums out. Anybody who has had more than 6 years in office should go.

A new contract with America. Republicans want to win? They need to get some frickin' spine and get back to true conservative principles. This bail-out ain't it.
So, you're a fascist?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

You're moving in the right direction, but you haven't quite arrived. Please, allow me...

The Democrats want big government and aren't afraid to tell you this. The Republicans want even bigger government, and lie through their teeth about it. Take the national socialist agenda of god, guns, and babies off the table on one end, and the socialist agenda of national health care off the other, and you're left with two sides of the same coin.

Also, you've got the compromise thing all wrong. The Dems are the spineless party of compromise, not the GOP.

Fascism is a totalitarian nationalist political ideology and mass movement that is concerned with notions of cultural decline or decadence, and which seeks to achieve a millenarian national rebirth by exalting the nation or race, as well as promoting cults of unity, strength and purity.

Well I don't see how my comments fit into that but if you want to believe it be my guest.

I guess then you would be a Post Turtle?
