Well, the alice-in-wonderland election cycle continues on

Looks like rick perry might drop out and endorse Newt G. citing that Newt is the best real conservative in the race. Don't he know that Romney is the kind of conservative job 'creators'(ahh the fables we tell ourselves) want

I mean, come on, it's MLK week, it's not the color of a persons politics, but the contents of your wallet that the GOP cares for.

What's a matter with Perry? Didn't he get the GOP talking points that Newt is a progressive leftist?

I don't think the Corporate masters will like this one, especially not Faux news(boy with sopa and pipa going down in flames, Rupert is batting a thousand this week)

If the GOP actually had a soul left I'd almost say that this may be the fight over it. But, alas, they sold that to China years ago

I mean, income taxes on the 1% were slightly higher during the Clinton years, but not because of anything Clinton did. The economy boomed during the Clinton years, but he didn't invent the internet (it was created by DARPA, the research branch of DOD, but through a collaboration between government, universities, and a few private companies, beginning in I think the late 1970's).

What did Clinton do? He signed the law repealing Glass Steagall, he lowered the capital gains tax rate (which is how the 1%, or I should say the tiny upper fraction of the 1%, really gets over).

Don't get me wrong, Bush W. was perhaps the biggest criminal president in US history (I can't think of anyone worse than Bush). Certainly the republicans have become a party of dysfunctional narcissists (and they don't mind admitting it). But don't think the democrats are a party of idealistic anarchists ... far from it. SOPA has just as much support from democrats as republicans. Democrats have become corporatists (they talk the talk, but they don't walk the walk).

He wanted to secede from the Union too. Who's more toxic to the mainstream GOP, Gingrich or Romney?

Has anybody else seen this.

“I would like to get rid of the campaign finance laws that were put in place,” Romney said at a debate Monday night in Myrtle Beach, S.C. “ . . . Let people make contributions they want to make to campaigns, let campaigns then take responsibility for their own words and not have this strange situation we have.”

Shocking.

Some shit floats. Some shit sinks to the bottom of the toilet.

So much for the war with the states. He can now return to his Texas secession. Go Rick go, go...

Like Clinton and the most favored trade nation status for china?

[-] 1 points by debndan (1145) 2 years ago

yeah, that was one downside to his administration, along with the repeal of the glass-steagal act, and the passage of the commodities modernization act.

On those I'd say that he trusted larry summers too much. Can't believe summers is back and ready to be appointed by Obama to head the world bank.... we live in strange and corrupt times....

[-] 1 points by Kirby (104) 2 years ago

No shit. I used to think all the rest of the world were corrupt. And they are for sure. Weve a lot to deal with right here in our own backyard though.

Awwww........Rick Perry is one evil SOB. Couldn't happen to a better chap.

[-] 0 points by debndan (1145) 2 years ago

yes, have to say, glad he's going out. Just dazed and confused he endorsed Newt.

This is a good thing, because with each day Rupert is becoming political kryptonite. And that's the point....

To defeat the neoconservative lock on politics, you have to break the source, anything Faux touches, has to be shown for the poison that it is

And their hypocracy MUST be detailed ever step of the way

Why, dazed and confused? Rick Perry is aligned with the NAR to endorse Mitt would destroy his future.

[-] 0 points by debndan (1145) 2 years ago

not really, the NRA stopped backing gun rights and became a shill for neoconservatives when they endorsed kasich here in Ohio (he was and is a rabid anti-gun nut) over Ted stricktland (strickland had a perfect pro-gun voting record) for our govenorship.

NRA, like Norquist's tax payer union, are neoconservative/libertarian organizations, bent on electing people that would devastate their membership.

LOL, thought you transposed the R &A. : o I almost forgot about the profiteer movement of charasmatics.

Yeah, them folks are just plain weird, hmmmmm guess they would oppose romney being a mormon

[+] -5 points by GirlFriday (17435) 2 years ago

They just had (this last week?) some little meeting looking to find an alternative to Romney. I think they went with Santorum. But, it puts Perry in a spot. If Perry goes with Romney then it will probably harm his current and future political career because Romney is Mormon. I think Perry knows that Santorum is psychotic, won't appeal to a broad enough base and doesn't really have a shot.

That's just what I am seeing. They are weird.

Nice!

Do you have a doppelganger?

[-] 1 points by debndan (1145) 2 years ago

Nope, it's always either me or the wife, hence the deb n dan

we drive people batty, but we both agree that the GOP is corrupt

[+] -6 points by ZenDogTroll (13032) from South Burlington, VT 2 years ago

but you guys are conservatives?

Because I haven't met a staunch conservative that doesn't toe the repelican party line. And I have seen someone using either your name or one like it posting what I thought was party line stuff.

[-] 2 points by debndan (1145) 2 years ago

I'm conservative and she's liberal, but we both agree that the past 12 years the republicans have worked against the public interest.

Trouble is, that neoconservatives/libertarians have rebranded themselves as conservatives. I've worked to disentangle that notion, and show quite well at times, how these folks are anything but conservative.

My wife maintains that the corruption goes back to the 1970's

I view reagan/ clinton years as the last conservative and liberal presidencies, she sees them as the 'gateway' drug to neoliberalism/neoconservatism

But we definately don't endorse the GOP of today.

What was considered a staunch conservative in the 1950's was eisenhower(one of my favorite presidents of the past 100 years)

He sent troops to Arkansas to help end segrigation

He opposed the communists

He faught the Fascists

and he built the interstate hiway

what is thought to be a conservative today, would do NONE of these things

These neocons are liars, which is why it's easy to point out the hipocracy

They are intellectual children of Ayn Rand and Barry Goldwater and in the 1950's and 60's they were correctly considered libertarians

But with goldwaters failed run for the presidency, the libertarians knew that America found them creepy at best, reprehensable and vile at worst.

So that's when the rebranding began, then after that, they made liberal a dirty word

it's time for true conservatives and liberals to undo this and show that the neoconservative/neoliberal agenda is anything but conservative or liberal

Interesting. Taking the term conservative to high ground - looks like a last stand for you guys - I doubt that the term can survive the repelican onslaught.

But good luck.
