It seems there are now more people living off the govt. teat than feeding
the govt. pig. This cannot go on forever.
Lincoln was a Republican.
1861-1865 -Birth of the Republican Party:Outlawing States' Right To Secede, Civil War,Reconstruction, Fundamental Transformation of America into a Dictatorship.
The Republican party has got to come to terms with its very sordid, lying, conniving roots. Sure they wanted abolition - but only so they could equally enslave everybody.
I think you've got to lay much of the responsibility for the current mess at their feet.
We have a whole new group of young prols entering the electorate who have no historical frame of reference to the failures of socialism. They have been indoctrinated into believing in the failures of capitalism and as Marxism as a solution to what ails us by the universities, teachers, and the media. With this belief that the state is the provider of all thing including the prized and coveted Obamaphone, we have entered a dangerous new era. It is no surprise that Dear Leader Comrade President fared so well given the state of the economy. Face it, a repeat of the 1980 elections that should have occurred, did not, because of the leftward march of the electorate.
Kennedy's "Ask not what your country can do for you" statement has been supplanted and turned upside down within the last 50 years, and it is my contention that this political cycle will need to complete itself before true change can occur. This means that the young prols must see and experience the collapse that occurs once the tipping point has past.
As for the tipping point, we have no means to sustain a socialist economy the way that Cuba relies on tobacco or Venezuela its oil, so falling is inevitable. We are already broke and so far in debt that it will be a relatively fast trip to the bottom unless we get bailed out by China. We are not far from this and we may have our Greek moment within the next four years.
Remember that throughout history borders change, civilizations collapse, and governments fall and the globe of tomorrow will look vastly different than what we have today.
Can I has my Obamaphone now?
I am a humble servant of the people who must subimt the fact that in 1913 the federal reserve aquired the rights to print all capitalistic paper money then sell it at full-face value with interest to the government of the united states to show them the errors of their system and it has taken the entire 100 year charter for it's mission to be completed.
There is still much work to be done and the vote for the re-newed charter come up in another two months!
But with commrade Obama in charge and ready to vote present, the last of the capitalistic pigs will be swept aside in a glorious orgie of equal poverty for all, except the ruling class of coarse!
So please amend your list commrade to include this most important blow to the democratic deamons!
Fed is already ordering new plates from Bureau of Printing and Engraving.
"In God We Trust" will no longer appear on U.S. Currency. This outdated motto will be replaced with the words of supplicant dependent class; "I Want My Mommy!"
When this far "FORWARD!" we must look BACK...
November 6, 2012, was when America died, when the people - after four years of excruciatingly clear and abundant evidence that the emperor not only had no clothes but was a communist, a traitor, a liar, a racist, and a useful idiot himself - voted for him yet again, putting the final, non-removable nails into the coffin that now holds what was once the United States of America.
All that remains is to watch the decay, as the worms work their way in and totally destroy what's left.
Another true patriot... Call it like you see it buddy!
Barkeep! Vodka for both of us, and be sure that he has his ration card, I seem to have misplaced mine...
metastasizing political cancer.
In the Blagunov 'quick tour' even the Constitution of 1789 might be thought of itself as a 'Thermodorian Reaction' to the Articles of Confederation. The dead end of the Kentucky & Virginia Resolutions advocated by Jefferson & Madison in defense of the 1st Amendment could be thought yet another. Just examples of the age of the trail of tipping points.
Was the American Experiment an accidental coincidence of a sparsely populated under developed resource rich New World and the zenith of the Age of Enlightenment bursting at the seams with ambitious ex serfs? Does urbanization invariably make the collective ascendant over the sovereignty of the individual? That's for history to decide. There is the example of Rome having had a rough time of things for the first few centuries before coming into its own so to speak.
But as for me the founding of America was an expression of Man's potential. If the City on the Hill is no more it is only here I think that its ruins can be found. It is here that the best chance of a political Renaissance can be inspired by those ruins - as were the Italian artist of old through the remnants of the Greco-Romans.
It is here perhaps Atlas Will Shrug.
