Of course you do. Why else would you try to distract from the topic with a personal attack? And what is the topic (between you and me)? Democrats in power, folks who claim to be sensitive to the will of 'the people', will, without remorse, circumvent that will, bend and blunt the democratic process, to get the result they want. Again, say what you like about Republicans, but be honest. Again, at least in the matter of nominating a presidential candidate, the Repubs are more ethical, more honest, than the Dems.
Who's saying this crap, that is 100% a lie. The last repub we had in office killed off all kinds of innocent young men, just so he could defend his families business, and tried to sell it to the American families as required so as to pay back the organizers of 9/11, when in fact there were no ties whatsoever. So the repubs are heartless murderers of innocence, and all for the sake of a dollar. Talk about evil incarnate, take the repubs please, and throw them in a great big hole where they belong. Of course I realize that both parties are comprised of individuals, each capable of doing that which serves their purpose alone. The real question is which are more "... for the people...?" And I see that it's the dems that fit that bill more so than the repubs.
"I don't give a rats ass anymore."
Of course you do.
"under the thumb "
I don't 'feel' particularly hobbled by any-one or -thing...mebbe you do?
"going all freaky violent"
Nah, that's just part of the act, which is well-crafted, designed to push buttons and distract and redirect. I'm surprised 'racist' didn't come up in the spiel...woulda been a classic diatribe then.
"The valuer names the concept being valued."
Exactly right, so leave folks alone to determine what each values cuz we don’t need no stinkin’ technocracy.
Of course I do...I was being sarcastic.
As for repubs being more ethical, I don't think either party walks on water. You can cite thousands of instances of unethical behavior by individuals of either party. The thing I am concerned about mostly is what does each party stand for? Is their general message ethical? I think the liberal message is more ethical.
The Dems belong to the party of racism and the KKK.
Here’s the definition of liberalism with more substance in reality than the rumbling of humours and whims of opinion. American history concurs.
http://www.heritage.org/initiatives/fir ... liberalism
“Liberalism can be understood in two very different ways. Liberalism, or what some call ‘classical liberalism,’ is a political philosophy based on individual liberty and limited government. Over the last century, however, liberalism has come to take on a different meaning. The contemporary understanding of liberalism is based not on individual liberty, but on the use of government to grant benefits and advantages in order to give everyone the ability to achieve a certain standard of living and reduce inequalities. Therefore, modern liberalism encourages an extensive network of interest groups that receive benefits from government and organize in order to preserve those benefits.
“Modern liberalism grows out of the Progressive rejection of American constitutionalism and an embrace of a new conception of freedom, anchored in big government. There are however certain significant differences between Progressivism and modern liberalism.
“Whereas modern liberalism exalts freedom of self-expression, especially sexual liberation, most Progressives embraced traditional morals. Liberals are also obsessed with equality of outcomes in ways that the Progressives were not. Today, liberalism has lost the faith in progress that characterized Progressivism, mostly because of a loss of confidence in the inevitability of progress and the creeping effects of having embraced relativism from the start of the Progressive movement.”
