There is definitely a campaign to fill the internet with liberal, socialist propaganda. It is bullying and scare tactics. Many of those so called whacko wing nuts the media and liberal interests want us to see at the town hall meetings are actually their own people. Obviously the intent is to make the opposition to complete government control look like lunacy and discredits the opposition that has the viable arguments and is a threat to their ultimate goal of complete government control.

What is going on is the first phase of a move to a government that has full power to pursue any agenda it pleases regardless of public dissent. The followers and worshippers of this government will stop at nothing to attempt to hear the masses and quiet the opposition. Liberals, communists, socialists and all left wing ideologues have always had a false sense of empowerment and enlightenment. Plenty examples of this occur on our favorite forum. They truly believe they know what is best for all of us. They crave power to make everyone the same and follow only their order.

In general terms they want a person who resides in Omaha Nebraska to be subject to the same laws as a person from Brooklyn NY. Why? Because liberals know what is best for everyone and one order keeps people in line under their all knowing interests. This is where personal liberty is dying and complete Government control is emerging.

In the sake of fairness we can use this very argument going back to 1994 when Newt Gingrich introduced the "Contract with America." All of a sudden the neocons realized they were the top of the moral authority food chain. It was the same wolf in a different sheeps' clothing. Again it was a treck toward the eradication of personal choice and liberty. It is all in the name of power and control and we all lose in the end if we continue to follow the leaders.

And there was much rejoicing.

Please. I'm too busy trying to run my own life, let alone care about yours. Many libs are social libertarians, so that right wing talking point bites the dust.

No, this forum does not reflect American politics. There are waaaay more sane conservatives out there than you'll find on this forum.

All political forums attract the fringe crazies. And most of them would never SAY what they POST. People get out their aggressions via anonymous internet postings and sometimes just lash out about things they don't even talk about with people IRL. If they don't know much about a particular topic it's easier to just post jokes or insults.

An interesting point on the Health care reform threads, there are at least three doctors, a pharmacist, and two pharm employees who frequently post on those threads. If anyone has an agenda, I believe these people do and are certainly not representative of the general public.

I'm going to go ahead and assume you have no evidence to back this up and lol you.

Wow we even have a "first phase"? This thing is really organized. Its like all of us liberals got together and planned it. And now the democratic party not only has followers... but WORSHIPPERS? thats right ladies and gents, first America, then GOD. And then you go and talk about how we think we know whats best for everyone, but what exactly are we doing that forces people to do anything? You are the ones that want to ban abortion, and you are the ones that don't want to let gay people get married... Because you think you know whats best. Liberals just want to stay out of everyone's way.

Because liberals are opposed to states' rights? I mean what have the liberals done to give you that impression at all? I love how you just answer your own questions too. You should start a thread, debate it, and conclude it all by yourself next time.

I don't get it, you're showing that the Republicans have done exactly what you're accusing the Democrats of attempting to do(but haven't accomplished yet, another *will happen* argument made by conservatives) to prove that the Republicans are better suited to run the government than Democrats? What the hell just happened? My brain hurts.

This bit of information has restored my faith in humanity. Ok, not really, but it does make me heave a sigh of relief.

The raw ignorance often displayed here can be disheartening. However, knowing how the demographics skew reaffirms my faith more than a little bit.
