quote: Does it surprise anyone that a thought like this came out of New York?
quote: Every American knows when someone calls this a-hole Senator from NY a "liberal", what that means. Isn't that all that matters?
quote: The "political spectrum" is part of the problem here. A spectrum is one-dimensional. Politics has at least two dimensions (see "Pournelle Axes").
quote: By definition, liberals would want more personal freedom and less government interference. This is how the rest of the world sees it, but US politics and media obfuscate the real understanding of the political spectrum.
quote: This is a progressive conservative collectivist.

quote: Really? They're attempting to take away women's right to choose. Gay people's civil rights. The right of evryone to be free of religion or to choose their own religion by always implementing crap that talks about how this is a Christiona nation.
quote: Which is EXACTLY why some things should never be left up to the private sector. The private sector does not care about what's best for America; they care about what's best for the company. That usually doesn't translate into best for the country. Government is supposed the be on the side of the people. the same cannot be said for corporations.
quote: The government has a responsibility to do what's best for the country. In a recession to let millions of jobs die because of right-wing ideology would be stupid. Besides, the governement will ALWAYS be in business. They have historically bought congress and manipulated the market to the point to where there truly is no free market anymore. Besides, the minute a private company hands out a government contract, the idea of the free market is out the window.
quote: Excuse me? If you voted against them, there wouldn't be any to vote for; they always focus on these wedge issues and you know it. Nearly 100% of republicans vote in lock-step on every one of these types of bills.
quote: This guy is a republican backed by the Teaparty. The teaparty does not back liberals.
quote: The fact that this movement accepts Mitt Romney is just an absolute joke to me.
quote: Whether it's voting for Romney or simply voting against Obama makes no difference in the end.
quote: Never change

quote: That's exactly the response I was waiting for.You're name is Ilarion Bilynsky, and you own neither boats nor airplanes. There's no dock behind your house. You have no actual customers, just fake identities. You're a fraud and a crook, and remarkably unsuccessful at everything you attempt.
quote: There's no Eric Martello. There's no Larry Peters. All these supposed customers are just you - a liar, a loser, and a troll. You've been called out everywhere you've attempted these little scams, and you make the same claims each time.
quote: If you want to live your life as a loser, have fun with that. If you want to commit fraud (which you're doing by the way,) you'll eventually end up in jail.

quote: Can you believe that was 2003, and it's 2012 already? Business has gone downhill a little bit in the last few years, hasn't it, Ilarion?
quote: Let's get one thing perfectly clear - In the US, you have a Constitutional right to "Free Speech. That means that you can say what you like, as long as it doesn't constitute libel on your part. You do NOT have a Constitutional right to be Anonymous, period! You are responsible for what you say or write, no matter when or where you do it. That's part of being a "responsible adult".
quote: When the Internet started, you sent mail directly between users computers, and you know exactly who was sending the messages you received. As the internet grew, so did the ways of sending and receiving information, and direct transfers of messages was dropped in favor of servers, allowing anonymous messages. That turned the internet into the Electronic Wild West it is today.
quote: Well, just like the Wild West died, the internet version will also die. It's just a matter of time. Part of IPv6 is addressing this, and eventually everyone on the internet will be identified by their IP address.
quote: and eventually everyone on the internet will be identified by their IP address.
quote: All users posting to websites would have to post their real name and address, non-compliant posts would be axed
quote: If you got something to say, stand up identify yourself
