It says quite a lot about the state of the Republican Party that the right-wing extremist Rick Santorum- a politician so despised by his own Pennsylvania constituents that he lost his U.S. Senate seat by an 18-point margin- is now the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination. And not by a little, I might add-by 10 points, according to that latest national tracking poll by Gallup.

As increasing numbers of people identify themselves asindependent voters -- independent of the major political parties, that is -- the essence of the Republican Party has distilled into a toxic brew of resentment, prejudice, anti-intellectualism and misogyny. In truth, the party has been headed this way for a long time, but the election of Barack Obama -- a moderately liberal African American man with an African-Islamic name -- offered the perfect catalyst for the alchemists of the right to convert their everyday potion of pique into something far more fortified.

    "Extremist" is the progs new buzzword for the 21st century which ironically describes them to a "T".

    Then again, they have a long history, playing the game of accusing their adversaries of doing precisely what they, them-self are guilty of.

    Obama is left of most free societies, just to the right of chavez and castro.

    Not even remotely close. Obama is considerably to the right of Sweden, for instance, which is considered one of the freest nations on Earth (far and away more so than the USA currently is or has been in recent years).

    Yeah right...but say something that offends a special group and se what happens. Ubama = chavez

    Say something that offends a special group? You may be called down on it and publicly humiliated. If you speak outright lies about a person you may be sued for slander. Print or otherwise publish them and it becomes libel. If you have a media presence you may lose advertisers, as Rush Limbaugh (and Glenn Beck before him) recently discovered.

    But you know what won’t happen, just for offending a “special group”? You won’t go to prison. You won’t even be charged with a crime (at least, not for that per se). Slander and libel are civil torts, not crimes.

    Oh, i didn’t realize that you were talking about Sweden before. I was Replying based on what would happen here in the USA.

    That said, can you cite the Swedish law that mandates jail time for that? I’ve not heard of it.

    I’m sorry, but “back this assertion up” ≠ “repeat the bare assertion.”

    The Fallacy of the Bare Assertion, aka “Because I Said So, So There, Nyah, Nyah, Nyah!” cannot be used to prove nor provide backup nor support of any kind for anything (ditto for any other logical fallacy).

    In lieu of what would take a dissertation to describe this "candidate", I'll just say that this guy is the poster child for Right Wing Extremacy and I can't believe anyone could even THINK about voting for this man for president.

    you people all respond to that one in concert. do you get your talking points from the white house just like the mainstream media does? i get that all the time from you loons, "you don't even know what marxism is" or "you don't even know who saul alinsky was" or "you don't know what communism is." i know that leftists are evil, and every leftist form of government has failed everytime it has been tried. but now, you loons think you have the right people in place, and the socialist utopia you all strive for will finally come to fruition. blah blah blah, you leftists are a broken record.

    communism:
    each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

    socialism:
    the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

    and the best part is socialism is directly compatible with religion. totally including christianity. any say to that?

    you didn't answer my question, according to your page you are a christian and religion itself is compatible with socialism. in fact the only type of economic system it can work with is socialism which you hate so much. what is your thoughts on that?
  • truthzx95 reaper 2012/03/02 04:19:45

    my thoughts are that you are a whacked-out leftist, and your leftist attempts to defend socialism are deplorable.

    lets see... socialism: the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.
    as in the community says "lets give our hard working earnings to the church and they will keep telling us how we will go to hell for not obeying our tyrant of a god."

    religion has no compatibility with capitalism
