quote: I find it funny how the only time we ever hear "both parties are the same" is when Democrats get caught with shenanigans. I never heard people say "both parties are the same" when Republicans did this. Then it was just Republicans trampling the Constitution, acting like Nazis, pissing on the American people for personal power gain, etc.
quote: I can't really speak to politics before W. Bush because I was too young and didn't care
quote: Instead of whining in some "but he did it too" children's fight, why don't we work on getting both parties to both work together and get our country on a reasonable path again.
quote: GM is completely free of debt to taxpayers as the current debt they have is privately held by banks or escrowed by TARP funds (left over from the Bush administration.) GM paid off the last of their debt to the tax payers in April.
quote: If you are wondering where your tax dollars are really going, why don't you ask George Bush Jr. why he gave banks a cool 800 billion dollars in interest free loans?
quote: TO DATE, Obama has spent aproximately HALF of what Bush spent on Iraq and TARP.
quote: What in the hell is wrong with you people? Turn off the Fox and Friends and read a f*cking newspaper, hopefully one not owned by Rupert Murdock.
quote: Nfarce, the Democrats are responsible for the withdraw from Iraq. If the Repukians...blah blah drool drool spit piss panties...
quote: Troubled U.S. automaker giant General Motors paid back the remainder of the debt it owed the government. In an announcement today, the U.S. Treasury said that it repaid the final $4.7 billion it owed out of the original $6.7 billion the government had lent the company. GM was expected to pay back its debt early, but not this soon.
quote: That's because when a Democrat screws up, democrat supporters begrudgingly admit it by saying the other party is the same (which I maintain is generally true).
quote: Democrats are, by definition, hypocritical
quote: Now see, why would you say that?
quote: What about the conservative republicans expanding Federal Government powers under the previous president.
quote: Democrats are no more so than republicans.
quote: Sorry but you're wasting your time.
quote: Democrats are, by definition, hypocritical.
quote: I'm a uniter, not a divider.
quote: I will fire the person who leaked the name Valerie Plame.
quote: So far this is receiving far more criticism than the patriot act did.
quote: Another little Dem secret Obama then a senator voted FOR the patriot act.
quote: But that simply proves both parties are different sides of the same coin, anybody who sticks with them and calls themselves right is just kidding themselves.
quote: The reality is that you have a far greater chance of being harmed by another american than any terrorist.
quote: Then again, there has been nary a peep with the current administration's out of control deficit spending with a Democrat run congress either. People were sure upset with the previous administration and Congress doing that. Go figure.
quote: Hell, I voted for Obama and would vote for him again
quote: Frankly, the Democrats are NOT destroying our country
quote: Two wars based on lies.
quote: A stock market crash.
quote: A housing market crash.

quote: 1.6 Self-Defense The only legitimate use of force is in defense of individual rights — life, liberty, and justly acquired property — against aggression. This right inheres in the individual, who may agree to be aided by any other individual or group. We affirm the individual right recognized by the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms, and oppose the prosecution of individuals for exercising their rights of self-defense. We oppose all laws at any level of government requiring registration of, or restricting, the ownership, manufacture, or transfer or sale of firearms or ammunition.
quote: I was speaking to the fact that we have a constitution that gives us the opportunity to revolt in non-violent ways.
quote: so wait a minute you are saying all the skinny Americans will revolt?
quote: What happened to REPRESENTING the people that voted you in?

quote: *rolls eyes*
quote: The Bush administration and the Obama administration appear to believe that no sacrifice is to great in the "war on terror" even if that sacrifice is citizens' freedoms and privacies.
quote: You really don't understand that both parties are culpable.
quote: Guess who covered that story most? MSNBC
quote: Trying to justify one party is less evil over the other doesnt make the former any better.
quote: the US needs a new way of thinking that is not Demo/Repub.
quote: I agree. It's time to get back to good solid Conservatism. Come November I'm confident we'll start seeing the first signs that it's making a comeback.
quote: You are confused. Repubs and conservatives are two different things. Conservatives want less federal government so the states can determine what they want.
quote: The Repubs were much the same when Reagan received enough conservatives and conservative democrats (the JFK Dems) to reel in Carter's insanity. But Reagan had a solid Dem controlled Senate and House. He got the tax cuts through but he wasn't able to cut the spending. Spending IS the money problem.
quote: The problem you have failed to note is the Progressive influence in both party's membership. That is where the biggest hurdle lies. If you don't know they brought you segregation, eugenics, prohibition, the income tax, removed Senatorial elections from State legislators, modern propaganda, ... and so on. The modern bureaucratic nanny state of dependence based on the Prussian government system. They are the self appointed elitist who think they know what's best for you. And I forgot Heath care, stimulus, financial reform to track every electronic transaction you make.
quote: Bush was obviously trying to protect us
quote: Why didn't he try from Jan xx to September 10th 2001?
quote: So let me understand here.
quote: What you're saying is that without any provocation, W should have launched a preemptive War on Terror because we knew there was a threat?
quote: p.s. where have you seen me "blame Clinton"? You haven't
quote: It takes this government 8 months to install a toilet.
quote: Then there are environmental impact studies done on said toilet. 12 months and 5 million dollars later, said toilet is installed by a team of 400 workers, contractors, and union bosses.
quote: And yet Bush, with no specifics on this "threat", was going to "shore up" defenses right after being elected with a time frame of 8 months. Right.
quote: the Bush administration wiretaps were directed to foreign calls which COULD be speaking to a citizen at the time
quote: Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
quote: I willingly would give up my privacy from the lunatics they are after to protect my family.
quote: home invasions aren't exactly high on the terrorists target list?
quote: Unfortunately, those Republican asshats we have in Congress today were STUPID enough to ratify treaties that made it illegal to use those, while not having methods to punish countries that artificially keep their money and workforce wages low.
quote: Under the bill all online communication services -- including video chat services (like Skype), social network services (like Facebook), and data/encrypted email service (like RIM's Blackberry packages) -- would be forced to comply with warrantless requests for information from the U.S. government -- similar to the warrantless wiretaps that recent legislation made legal in the U.S.
quote: Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters like BlackBerry, social networking Web sites like Facebook and software that allows direct “peer to peer” messaging like Skype — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order.
quote: This shit isn't gonna pass, no amount of screaming about tururism is going to make this a plausible idea. so yea, good luck.

quote: At what point is it "too late?"
quote: We got scared, we sold out our freedom and we split the world.
