"I'm not talking about defending illegal immigrants as her party has done time and time again. I think I'm very much on the record as wanting to protect America and America's interests. All of your sanctuary cities are liberally controlled, Democratically controlled. Is she working on the interests of Americans or illegal immigrants?" Mr. Wurzelbacher said.

I am not surprised this doofus said this, just a few weeks ago he was quoted while in Arizona (I think, to lazy to look it up) where he said he wanted to sit on the border and shoot at illegals trying to cross the border.

"Quite frankly, _____ suck, I hate it with a passion. Only reason I'm involved in it is I like _____ and I like _____."

Also, that is a ROUGH-lookin' 38.


Holy crap, he is only 38? That's five years older than me and if people saw us together in public they'd probably assume he was my dad, and I'd look very ashamed too I guess.

the expert says this campaign is worth $100K... but there's a very limited market for this kind of thing... I've got to find the right buyer... it's going to sit in my shop for a long time... hell Chumly will probably break it before I can find someone that's going to pay top dollar for it... look, it's damaged here on the back and it looks like someone repaired it, but I'd really love to have this in my shop... I'll give you $5K

More than 170 years ago, the French political thinker and writer, Alexis de Tocqueville saw this coming, and warned of its dangers in his most famous writing, Democracy in America. Here is an excerpt :

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship."

Our public treasury cannot sustain further "largesse." Our national debt has ballooned to more than $16 trillion. The top 25 percent of wage earners contribute 87 percent of all tax revenue and it is numerically impossible to tax them sufficiently to pay for this expansion of federal government - let alone pay down our debt.

Is that words like "Deficits don't matter" and "The wealth will trickle down?"

There is a really, really, good and undeniable reason why we shouldn't believe those words, and how we know that they don't, in fact, hold true.

I'll leave it to you to figure out for yourself.

Seconded. Market Socialism FTW.


publikenemy: Seriously, wtf is wrong with you all? Most here seem well educated so I just don't understand it.


You don't understand it because you don't actually consider the arguments being made, you just assume that any policy you deem socialist is stupid, was invented by stupid people, and couldn't possibly work.


publikenemy: You are for socialism in America?


Are you under the impression that we have no socialism? Every country in the world is socialist to some degree. Any social program that is run with money collected from taxpayers can be considered socialist -- public schools, the Postal Service, National Parks, the Military (including the DoD and Veterans benefits), Social Security and Medicare for old people who can't work anymore... and those are just a few.


publikenemy: It doesn't work! Have we not learned from numerous examples?


Yes, like Sweden, which has very low crime, highly educated (free college), high life expectancy (universal health care), and a high quality of living?
Most of Northern Europe does, actually, and they're all under a Market Socialist system. And you're telling me that it doesn't work? LOL. The when you can sound reasonable with just some wharrgarbl over Mao's China, or the USSR as examples of Evil Socialism are long past. We have examples of highly socialist countries that work extremely well.


publikenemy: Obama has undeniably stated that he if for redistribution. Is this what you want? Honest question.


We already have redistribution. It's called taxes. Practically every nation in the world has them (excepting places like Somalia), and so have we since the inception of our country.

And yes, that is what I want. When everyone contributes to common goals we can accomplish things that we cannot do as a collection of individuals who are out for ourselves. I don't need to hoard everything for myself, I'm not a selfish bastard. I am happy to give when I have plenty in case there comes a day when I don't.


publikenemy: Why would you want a socialist country? Seriously, why?


Because it ensures that you have certain necessities, even if you fall on hard times. It is more equitable. It raises up the whole of society (if maybe not as high as the 1% here), instead of stratefying the upper and lower class by design.


publikenemy: Wow..I'm done. You are so incredibly stupid that I can't wrap my head around it. Go ahead, have your socialism and get back to me in 10 years. I weep for the death of America as I have known it.


LOL. I guess when you don't have facts or arguments you can always just facepalm and make fun of the other guy to make yourself sound superior. If the "America as you have known it" is the America where business owners can get rich by risking everyone's financial well-being and giving irresponsible loans, or shipping everyone's jobs to India and China, then I welcome it.

Your sort exalts Capitalism as a religion, refusing to acknowledge that it has inevitable pitfalls that any responsible government NEEDS to fix. Capitalism is a force of human nature, not a type of government. It needs to be reigned in, harnessed, and directed, so that it doesn't trample the people who depend on it.

No, the answer is that it DID work. 6% was optimistic, to be sure, but it has created jobs and unemployment would have been worse without it.
The market is back up, and although we're not back to rolling in the dough, to write it off as completely ineffective is to woefully underestimate the severity of the recession we could have had. With banks failing, some of our largest manufacturing businesses staring at bankruptcy, and tons of jobless people with upside-down home loans (and therefore no disposable income), it is a wonder we're doing as well as we are.

Conservatives want to try and cut the deficit by cutting the sort of programs that were instituted in the stimulus in order to "balance the budget", but this ignores one of the basic tenets of business: You have to spend money to make money. The country is not run on a household budget. Our GDP is tied to the money we spend, unlike your common household which has the same income no matter how much they spend on food or frivolities. We need to use money to stimulate job creation, so that people will not only make more money that they can spend to bring the economy back up to speed, but we can once again start manufacturing useful things that other countries might want, thus decreasing our huge trade deficit. Tightening our belts more and more just isn't going to work.

You don't think we say the EXACT same thing about you? It's just a fundamental difference..a divide that will never be bridged IMO. I am definitely socially liberal, but fiscally I happen to be of the opinion that we are royally farking up. The left has painted a conservative as an absolute..conservative about anything and everything, and that's just not so with most. It's playground politics at its worst, and it's working for the left...a dissenting voice?..racist. Hey, it works. Obama has divided this country like never before...honestly, I have never seen this country at odds with each other as much as today, and it's sickening.
