This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Apparently it will won't end until there are no more (R)epelican'ts as we know them.

When will they decide that YOUR vote is nothing to give a rats ass about?


Racism is fast becoming a corner stone of the (R)epelican't party, as they move ever closer to becoming full blown neolibe(R)tarians..

So just to clarify, what is the difference between libertarians and neolibertarians?

Im not saying the Republican Party doesnt have racists in it. Im just asking for the definitions of these cute little phrases you love so much so I can better understand them.

I think that is very important.

Military training: kill the towel heads

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

I believe the difference lies in the how it is practiced and understood.

The neolibe(R)tarians follow objectivism to a fault, and freely distribute Ayn Rand literature. They are often international as well. They also tend to be very rich.

The libe(R)tarian you meet on the street? Is just misled as I once was.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 5 years ago

Those are talking points. I'm looking for tangible differences.

[-] 2 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 5 years ago

Libertarians are more worried about social liberties where as Neolibertarians, in a heart beat, would sell out social issues if they knew they could strengthen their economic liberties. That's the way I differentiate the two.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

Thank you!!!!

You see the difference.

Libe(R)tarians claim to be about personal liberties.

Neolibe(R)tarains are all about economic liberties, and in the end those liberties negate the social liberties.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 5 years ago

Sounds a lot like neolibs vs liberals, and neocons vs cons.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

It might seem that way if you don't look beyond the propaganda of the duopoly paradigm.

You have to think outside what you've been told.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 5 years ago

.thats funny. ...

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago


That's serious.

I've explained to to you far too many times and in far too ways, for you to take it so lightly, and then pretend you've never heard of it.

But then you always were a libe(R)tarian sympathizer. Often the first to stick up for Ron Paul. You even did that, just today.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 5 years ago

Saying that our democracy is a scam could be taken that way, I suppose.

You stick up for the status quo, and I dont. Ive heard you explain your positions many ways, yet they are always the same end point- more of the same.

Whats funny is for someone like you who has followed the establishment's clown show lock and step for their entire long life, to tell someone they need to open their eyes.

Look at Jesse's answer, thats an answer.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

That was a scathing pack of lies, and then you wonder why you're difficult to trust?

As usual for you, you even toss in an attempt at insult.

I think I'm done having any respect for you.

I did not attempt to insult you, yet you seem unable to communicate without insults.

It's you who is the smoke and mirrors.

[-] -2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 5 years ago

I didnt see any insults in there.

If you are insulted, perhaps you need to start taking some emotions out of your mind when reading replies. I'm simply stating that you have endorsed Duopoly for most of your life (youve told me this).

That my saying the RP delegates got screwed is more of a line on the state of the democracy than an endorsement (i thought you agreed with this before).

And that you prefer to continue to vote for the two current power brokers in washington (i believe this is true too, right?)

So where are the insults? I didnt call you dumb for falling for it, did I?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

Another pack of lies, hchc?

Are you capable of anything else?

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 5 years ago

Lies are only lies if they are disproved.

The current state of our political system is a total 100% farce. Its a hostile takeover, and its not going to change until the political leaders on teh ground, the politically active within communities, decidet that enough is enough.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

That's just it.

You haven't come close to proving a thing.

Except that it was probably not a good idea to give you a community outreach position.

Or did you volunteer?

Interesting that you still have no in depth comments on the racism and generally despotic politics of Florida, and the wonders of Rick Scott.

Yes, yes. You really are a liar.

[-] -2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 5 years ago

Thats because you ignore alll the posts on solutison, and the ones on Rick Scott. its OWS, i dont post too much on our local situations.

Banking and bought out politicians. Thats teh focus. Try to keep up.

And I dont need to prove things that are obvious, like your blindness to what this thing is. You do that for all the people who are down with occupy and come here to see you cheerleading the very shit we are protesting.

People who want change appreciate what we are doing. Those who want the status quo, like yourself, usually arent very touched by outreach, regardless of how many facts we put in your face.

[-] 1 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 5 years ago

I'll give you that. And from that perspective I could see how one would say that our democracy is all smoke and mirrors, considering both parties have Neopoliticians.

[-] 1 points by ogoj11 (263) 5 years ago

So true, Mary. I live in Raleigh, NC. Sometimes I comment on the News and Observer's (local daily) site. I'm convinced that the intense excitement that conservatives exhibit any time some abstract argument about economic policy touches on deficits, taxes, fiscal policy, interest rates -all of it - is completely unnatural. Underneath is a barely repressed racial rage. It's all bottled up because they know they have to maintain a non-racist fiction.

But try introducing Freud. That's a nonstarter.

The connection between racism and sexism, always strong here in the South, also helps explain the New Sexism, which is intensified by displaced energy from the race issue.

[-] 2 points by MaryS (678) 5 years ago

Well that makes a lot of sense. And here I was thinking the new sexism was due to something in the water. Thanks, I'll check out your link also.

[-] 2 points by ogoj11 (263) 5 years ago

I live in Raleigh, NC where I sometimes post comments to the daily newspaper's (News and Observer) stories. Whenever racism comes up, usually in fairly obvious cases, the conservatives are skillful at deflecting the charge. The 'race card' is regarded as a ploy used by libtards who have swallowed the mainstream media's kool-aid.

The conservatives think that as long as they avoid offensive insulting words, racism doesn't exist. Try pointing out, for instance that 12 million people of a different color and ethnicity receiving substandard treatment is racism. They will scream about the law.... Slavery was the law.... Borders are not slavery. So it goes.

Here's the bottom line about the conservatives I've talked with. They display enormous passion about things like deficits, budget ceilings, tax codes, entitlements, all dry matters of economic policy. Behind the passion about boring stuff is the racism. It's barely suppressed and sometimes leaks out. They generally seem to know the rules about what can be said, but if you watch, you'll see them nodding and winking. Interestingly, sexism is similar, but the rules aren't as carefully defined, the repression not as thoroughly learned. That's why we've had more high profile cases of conservatives making outrageous sexist statements. (Limbaugh, Akin)

Please visit Occupy Raleigh's Forum. We need stimulating comments.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

I've met these "kinds" of people here in Michigan too.

they are able to put on a show in public, yet in private the bigotry comes out full force.

I would be glad to check out Raleigh's forum.

Could you provide a link?

[-] 1 points by ogoj11 (263) 5 years ago


I'm amazed that the republicans plan to run strictly on their economic nonsense. I've always assumed that the right depended on drugs, crime, foreign devils, wars, racism, sexism, religion, etc.

I'd be grateful for comments on Occupy Raleigh's site, so grateful that I'll offer you my sure fire, can't miss, make a million idea (that I haven't acted on) in advance.

Write a movie script called: Trickle Down, The Movie. and sell it to the conservatives. It's obvious that their notions need to be made more concrete, tangible, believable. Don't feel you need to be any more realistic than a typical war movie designed to glamorize militarism. heroism

Well, it is no secret the agenda of this country. Anyone who understands history also understands who and why this government was founded and is run the way it has been. This country was not founded for anyone other than those of a specific lineage, doctrines and ideals. That is the truth of this economy as well.. It is a hard pill to swallow, but most people don't want to face that this is the reality here and around the globe. Until we come to realize the underlying doctrines of this nation and who created it, we will continue to have those lost nations suffering. Now, if we are to take the lesser of the two evils, then most know who they will re-elect....right?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

None of this makes any sense in the context of the thread.

Just what are you getting at, and what does it have to do with bigotry and racism?

[-] 0 points by Neuwurldodr (744) 5 years ago

Naivete.... Bigotry and racism exist in this country due to the fact the "alleged" founding fathers created this system for themselves and their kind ONLY! Not for the tired or the poor alleged "black" people, or Mexicans, but for the pale skin nations of Europe and the immigrants who arrived here shortly thereafter. Get the truth on this great nation of ours!
Nowhere are they (alleged minority) a part of any history of this great land except as viewed as being foreign to these shores and that is a lie! Now we are finding out who actually lived here before they (European explorers, Immigrants, newcomers) arrived on these shores yet, these original peoples (not Indians) were written out of English/American laws, policies, documents and history, except as slaves and as slave holders themselves! .
Why, after almost 700 years is there still a need to be recognized?.

What people fail to realize is that the labeled second class citizens on these shores comes from the way this establishment was set, how the educational books were written, how the laws were created and how the reality of it all is frightening to them. It was created for the pale skin European male, pure and simple. Anyone who agrees is in favor, anyone who does not is an enemy to their cause! Regardless of how many laws enacted, it has not changed.
Why is this so hard for people to understand? The underdog remains the underdog until he/she/they come to the realization that there is no reason to remain the underdog.. Pure and simple! This is a pale skin European male structured society, and that is why no one will get it together until they understand that fact .

They created for themselves a heritage, a nationality, a flag, a religion and their country has their names in most instances! Now.......who can dispute those facts?
Everyone is living in a fake LA LA land, and the elitists will never ever let you know otherwise, or care one way or another!
Why should they? Would you if you had the pot of gold at the end of your rainbow? Now, I have given my piece and I will hope that instead of interrogating me...find out why people still enjoy being mental slaves and remaining in this political posturing game of bull shyt, instead of standing up for what is right for themselves and their future generations. What will be the new game next year?
How utterly despicable for a race and an intelligent nation of people to continue to undergo such confusion as to who and what they are!

So..your rabble rousing does nothing to solve the problem...when people stand up for the truth then this system will change for the better. Voting is fine and dandy but the people need to get out from under this iron hand oppression that has gone on for too long. It is this European system of servitude that keeps the yoke around peoples necks. I believe that you are here to keep people hooked on the idea that they should remain in servitude in this system and that voting will fix the problem...It will not!

Now that I have your attention...stop reporting racism and bigotry without giving the correct solution to the problem regarding the misrepresented people on these shores who are not...Negros, Blacks, African Americans, coloreds, etc. What is their true origin, what is their true nationality and name? What is their rightful position in this so-called political power play that exists? Stop digging the well deeper without tapping the water.

You are chanting and ranting, yet you fail to disclose ( and if you do know you are truly a traitor to your own people) what this nation is all about!

KKK Terrorist Arm of the Democratic Party

By Frances Rice

History shows that the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democrat Party. This ugly fact about the Democrat Party is detailed in the book, A Short History of Reconstruction, (Harper & Row Publishers, Inc., 1990) by Dr. Eric Foner, the renown liberal historian who is the DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University. As a further testament to his impeccable credentials, Professor Foner is only the second person to serve as president of the three major professional organizations: the Organization of American Historians, American Historical Association, and Society of American Historians. Democrats in the last century did not hide their connections to the Ku Klux Klan. Georgia-born Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan wrote on page 21 of the September 1928 edition of the Klan’s “The Kourier Magazine”: “I have never voted for any man who was not a regular Democrat. My father … never voted for any man who was not a Democrat. My grandfather was …the head of the Ku Klux Klan in reconstruction days…. My great-grandfather was a life-long Democrat…. My great-great-grandfather was…one of the founders of the Democratic party.”

Dr. Foner in his book explores the history of the origins of Ku Klux Klan and provides a chilling account of the atrocities committed by Democrats against Republicans, black and white.

On page 146 of his book, Professor Foner wrote: “Founded in 1866 as a Tennessee social club, the Ku Klux Klan spread into nearly every Southern state, launching a ‘reign of terror‘ against Republican leaders black and white.” Page 184 of his book contains the definitive statements: “In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who desired the restoration of white supremacy. It aimed to destroy the Republican party’s infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state, reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial subordination in every aspect of Southern life.”

Heartbreaking are Professor Foner’s recitations of the horrific acts of terror inflicted by Democrats on black and white Republicans. Recounted on pages 184-185 of his book is one such act of terror: “Jack Dupree, a victim of a particularly brutal murder in Monroe County, Mississippi - assailants cut his throat and disemboweled him, all within sight of his wife, who had just given birth to twins - was ‘president of a republican club‘ and known as a man who ‘would speak his mind.’”

“White gangs roamed New Orleans, intimidating blacks and breaking up Republican meetings,“ wrote Dr. Foner on page 146 of his book. On page 186, he wrote: “An even more extensive ‘reign of terror’ engulfed Jackson, a plantation county in Florida’s panhandle. ‘That is where Satan has his seat,‘ remarked a black clergyman; all told over 150 persons were killed, among them black leaders and Jewish merchant Samuel Fleischman, resented for his Republican views and for dealing fairly with black customers.“

I fear the many pro Occupy people can rightly be called "white leftists" meaning not that they are white but that their leftism ignores black oppression and is in fact "white." For example this post got shadow banned pretty fast.


Why are zero percent of black people saying they'll vote for Romney? Even McCain got four percent of the Black vote. It's because Black voters see this election as a life and death matter, no joke! White "leftists" (meaning adherents of the white left, some may not be white themselves) ignore the fact that you now have a member of a racist cult (a mormon) running a down and dirty lying racist dog whistle campaign against the first Black president of the united states. At issue is the little that's left of the social safety net and voting rights, and gay rights, and women's rights. Importantly at issue is really whether Blacks are really Americans. The seriousness of this situation just doesn't penetrate the skull of the head up his ass "white leftist."

[-] 2 points by Mooks (1985) 5 years ago

If blacks vote in the same numbers that they did in 2008, Obama will win no problem. It is whether the hope and change that brought out so many of them for the first time in 2008 hasn't soured over the past 4 years because of a perceived lack of results or broken promises.

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 5 years ago

Republicans have made great efforts to suppress the black vote!

[-] 2 points by Mooks (1985) 5 years ago

Then they should be proactive and go out and get some IDs and not leave it up to the courts or politicians. Problem solved. They have over 2 months to do it. Black voter turnout, which was historically high in 2008, regressing back to the mean is going to be a bigger problem than voter ID laws. Those who didn't see the hope and change they expected in 2008 may go back to staying home on election day as they did for the elections prior to 2008.

[-] 2 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 5 years ago

[-] 1 points by Mooks (1985) 5 years ago

So voter ID laws aside, do you think black turnout would be the same as it was in 2008?

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 5 years ago

Of course. Why not?.

[-] 1 points by Mooks (1985) 5 years ago

I think a lot of blacks, who never voted before 2008, are disappointed in the lack of change after a promise of "hope and change" and will go back to not voting as they did in the past.

Personally, I voted for Obama in 2008 and am pretty disappointed and things have gotten disproportionally worse among the black community since 2008. I think people see Obama as just another say anything politician in 2012 as opposed to someone promising hope and change in 2008.

[-] 2 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 5 years ago

I disagree, African American support Pres Obama just as strong as 2008. They know our problems were created by racist republicans, and the recovery has been weakened by treasonous racist republicans who cannot have a strong recovery while a Democrat (African American at that!) in the Oval office. I don't believe you voted for Pres Obama in 2008, and you are not disappointed with him except in that he got more done in the face of your racist republican obstruction than you expected.

[-] 1 points by frogmanofborneo (602) from New York, NY 5 years ago

If your point is that "therefore the white left can safely abstain" I don't agree. Is that what you are trying to say?

[-] 1 points by Mooks (1985) 5 years ago

No, I am saying that if blacks are truly that concerned they should look at themselves because they voted in historically high numbers in 2008 on a promise of "hope and change" and if those numbers drop back to the historical norm because of a lack of "hope" or "change," Romney will likely win. He is a much stronger candidate than McCain with a lot more cash to burn and many independent moderate Americans, who may have voted for Obama in 2008, are very disenfranchised with him 4 years later.

Like in most previous elections, Democrats vote for the Democrat, Republicans vote for the Republican, and independents vote for the winner. Obama has been a bit unique in that in 2008 he expanded the Democratic base by bringing out people who historically vote in smaller numbers - black Americans. Since Obama will undoubtedly lose some independent voters, it is critical for Obama that black Americans turn out in the same numbers they did in 2008. Especially since many of the swing states have high numbers of black citizens.

[-] 1 points by frogmanofborneo (602) from New York, NY 5 years ago

This is why there are such strenuous efforts afoot to suppress voting among Obama's base. Also I think it explains efforts on this forum to discourage voting against Romney. It is going to be a very tight race barring some major major surprise which always could happen.

[-] 1 points by Mooks (1985) 5 years ago

If I were Obama's handlers, I would be more concerned about a regression to the mean among black voter turnout than ID laws. Both would obviously cost him votes but the promise of hope and change was an unbelievably powerful campaign tool in 2008 that led to a huge spike in black turnout. Ultimately, people's lives are not that much different in 2012 than in 2008 and if they are, it is probably not for the better.

If I was Obama, I would much more worried about simple statistics 101 than the politics of voter ID laws because in addition to suppressing black voters, which they undoubtedly do, they also suppress the votes of the elderly who overwhelmingly vote for the GOP.

If that focus goes to Article V, and the people work to become the "rightful masters of the congress and the courts" (Lincoln), by knowing constitutional intent, then working in the states is the ultimate form of political action.

The states made the federal, they can change it. The focus on finding representatives of all types that can dialog constitutonal intent is the best strategy. Of course the people have to have that dialog going first, and with cognitive infiltration raging over the web, no one can get oriented in functionality to gain a real dialog.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

Many of us here feel as I do, that before we can accept an article 5 rewrite.the money needs to come out and transparency needs to be increased.

In the current atmosphere, I feel it would deleterious, and any rewrite or amendment would end up serving those who pay for it, not the 99%.

Get the money out, simply HAS to come first, and this can best be served starting at the State level.

The other 49 should have been much stronger in their support of Montana. They should have been screaming.

[-] 1 points by ChristopherABrown (550) from Santa Barbara, CA 5 years ago

Few read Article 5 correctly. "shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution," means that the people work to become the "rightful masters of the congress and the courts" (Lincoln) because they are the only ones that can dictate Constitutional intent.

Currently American are not the masters. There needs to be "preparatory amendment which changes conditions" assuring the people can determine Constitutional intent.

For Constitutional intent to be known the abridging of free speech must be ended. And yes campaign finance reform, then the vote must be secured, the diebold issue.

Therefore all delegates the people vote for must agree to propose and work for ratification of these preparatory amendments. 1) End the abridging of free speech 2) Campaign finance reform 3) Secure the vote and reform elections

The money doesn't stand a chance in that scenario, its influence is eliminated at the onset and the power to do so is derived from Article V itself.

So you are basically correct. Getting the money out happens first along with 2 other priorities needed to see that an Article V conention is done properly.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 5 years ago

Those things do have to happen first, yet you and I know that the monied interests will fight against it tooth and nail.

[-] 1 points by ChristopherABrown (550) from Santa Barbara, CA 5 years ago

Working against those defending the constitution by using it properly really looks bad. Therefore what we always see is pacifying moves somewhat paralleling the public push. The ART5 movement is gaining silent strength and they know it, so put obama up to look good and maybe prempt with pacification. Pretty obvious.


Pitiful We the people, simply agreeing upon a few constitutional intents can absolutely obliterate their facade of deceit and manipulation IF a few will realize HOW much free speech can mean and HOW badly it is abridged.

Very few realize what was lost in the repeal of the Fairness Doctrine, nor how that repeal has affected the political dialog.

[-] 1 points by ChristopherABrown (550) from Santa Barbara, CA 5 years ago

Yup, the fairness doctrine provided more leverage to get opposing views out.

However, networks are still required to "operate in the public interest". So depending on how critial the public gets, the "fairness" level can fluctuate.

Because the public is so indulgent and ignorant behind media, or what it means to us, they are the immediate problem which might be solved as times get worse and worse, they get more concerned and pay better attention.

The issue arose originally with corporate personhood, and the fairness doctrine was designed to offset corporate media excesses that were simply gross. Very similar to the false advertising laws that came along to stop the lying advertisers of corporations with the right to free speech. So all of the rightfully tries to compensate for corporate personhood.

I say, remove individual rights from corporations through Article V, and that will certainly be the only way to do such a thing. Then, very carefully, "privilages" are alotted back to corporations on a temporary basis that actually operate properly.
