Thunderpipes: How do any of you libs honestly think we will ever bring the US debt under control? Once we hit the 20 + trillion mark in less than a decade, what then?

Where do you think the revenue could possibly come from to pay that down? Do you understand interest?

What about at the 40 trillion mark? 100 trillion? Will you raise tax rates on millionaires to 70%? That will bring in a few billion dollars in the short term. Tax businesses at 50%? That will cause massive contraction. How the hell do you intend to pay for all your free crap?

If we don't control it now, we are screwed. You can't do that by handing people free stuff and expecting them not to pay taxes. Obama's "Buffet" rule? Will get him a lot of votes. Will get the country about 4.7 billion a year. Absolutely goddamn nothing compared to our deficit. Successful people breed much more slowly. Dumb people breed like rabbits. You are a liar if you don't think that means less tax revenue, more welfare, and more Democratic voters to continue the cycle.

Homeland will continue it's descent into wantonness, harlotry, coveting her lovers who are hung like horses and cum like donkeys, passing their children through the fires, worshipping Mammon, Molech, and Jack.

From Freeperville

This means either:

1) Obama wins. Or,

2) The onerous Romney wins, fouls up horribly, cements the liberal socialist agenda in Washington, captains the economy as it collapses, guaranteeing that the Democrats will rule for another 50 years, assuming the United States itself does not collapse from its top-heavy, inefficient and totalitarian government.

In both cases, the conservative Supreme Court is lost, America's status as an economic and military superpower is over, internationalism will cause massive deprivation and suffering, our Bill of Rights will be forgotten and we will be subjected to East Germany quality nanny-statism.

The parts of our economy that could succeed will be suppressed, we will have massive and unpopular social change foisted on us, ignorant and fatalistic pseudo-scientists will finally get a ruinous chance to lord it over us with fantasies like population control and MMGW, and Agenda 21 will try to force all Americans into giant metropolises on the coasts, so that the heartland will be depopulated.

The very young will either be aborted or raised in government controlled stalls like farm animals, and anyone over the age of 60 will be put down as "obsolete". Death will be king.

Our allies will fall like dominoes before assorted tyrants, and millions of innocent people will be enslaved or die.

Congratulations, Republican leaders. This is what you wanted. This is what you craved. This is what you paid for and forced. And this is why you struggled so hard against the conservatives that wanted to stop this.

You won. America lost. Hopefully America will be remembered as a place that was once great, like Atlantis, a wonderful place full of dynamic people that the oppressed people of the world could have looked at with hope, that they might someday live like that, in freedom and liberty.

And hopefully, people like you will be remembered for ruining it, both directly and in complicity with the forces of evil and despair. That your names be cursed until they are forgotten, and your offspring live as castrated chattel.

You won.

First we must make a stand at the covention.

We need to do so before that. There has to be a prominent, articulate conservative willing to run as a third-party candidate. The quicker that candidate gets into the race and organized, the greater percentage of the vote he or she can garner.

I doubt there is time for that, with the GOP ready to take down any conservative candidate, like they did Herman Cain & Palin, who will even be willing to enter the race.
The GOP is powerful & what they did to Palin & Cain is mind boggling!

Yes, I said the GOP, not the Rats, it was our own repub party who took them down!

Hey, maybe God told him to run for a reason.

To lose.

To prove that the ideas that he keeps touting are wrongheaded and against God's actual plan.

Jahweh's plans are inscrutable. God knew the outcome long before this moment. God knew when he ran, that he'd lose. But in the running, he'd expose a lot of bad ideas for what they were. And by not allowing Rick to win the nomination, God got his message out:

IF YOU RUN ON THIS CRAP YOU WILL LOSE!

Rick was chosen to be an example. A martyr for the greater good. We should think Rick for his service.

Where do you think the revenue could possibly come from to pay that down? Do you understand interest?

What about at the 40 trillion mark? 100 trillion? Will you raise tax rates on millionaires to 70%? That will bring in a few billion dollars in the short term. Tax businesses at 50%? That will cause massive contraction. How the hell do you intend to pay for all your free crap?

If we don't control it now, we are screwed. You can't do that by handing people free stuff and expecting them not to pay taxes. Obama's "Buffet" rule? Will get him a lot of votes. Will get the country about 4.7 billion a year. Absolutely goddamn nothing compared to our deficit. Successful people breed much more slowly. Dumb people breed like rabbits. You are a liar if you don't think that means less tax revenue, more welfare, and more Democratic voters to continue the cycle.


Vote for us! We're all about jobs and deficit reduction now, honest. Look at all we've done in the last two years!

zedster: Zion (Hebrew for penis)


No.

"Zion" is the Anglicized form of the Hebrew word "tsee-own" [tzadik-yud-vav-nun), a euphemism for Jerusalem; though really it's a placeholder for "rebuilt center of Jewry, complete with Temple." I think it's also the origin of the English word "scion".

"Zayin" (also the 7th letter of the Hebrew alphabet) is a slang term for "penis", due to the shape of the letter in modern Hebrew block print.

I've corrected this mistake before. I really hope it's not a "thing" now...

Cyberluddite: imontheinternet: That was sudden. Either he made a deal with Romney, or his campaign is spiraling into debt. Probably both.

It's more a case that he saw the handwriting on the wall and realized he was going to get waxed in his home state of Pennsylvania (again!), this time by Mittens and the millions of bucks Mittens was prepared to spend there to finish FrothyBoy off. That would kill any credibility he has as a future candidate for Prez, and FrothyBoy is delusional enough to think that he as long as he avoids that embarassment he might actually have a shot in 2016 after Mittens gets biatchslapped by Obama in November. I mean, I can see why a normal person in his shoes might think that--he's still young, and it follows the pattern that Mittens set last time of coming in second to the eventual nominee and then getting his turn 4 years later, but the problem, of course, is that nobody is going to win on a platform of banning porn, banning contraception, speaking out agains the evils of masturbation, and all the rest.


ya, but if the GOP suffers a defeat in 2012 nationwide then they will do a purity purge assuming instead of moving center they need to be TRUE CONSERVATIVESTM and might make the chances of this guy winning the nomination in 2016 possible.
