41. If this group of buffoons truly thought they could wage a Libertarian 'jihad'...

...then i wonder about their panicked frames of mind. They tried to make a martyr out of Manning then Snowden. Neither of those panned out, primarily because Obama stayed cool under pressure, even when that pressure was joined by fellow Democrats.

When the discourse at DU resembles repetitions of Joe Wilson's "You lie!", it's become clear that too many Democrats have bought into the notion that the party cannot be salvaged.

They are ripe for the plucking into some 'safe harbor' such as Rand Paul. At least I think that was the 'hopes and dreams' of Assange, Greenwald, etc.

But just as Rumsfeld figured on Iraq being a cake walk, these Libertarian assholes are finally seeing that taking over the world is not as easy as it's portrayed in a James Bond movie.

They are panicking, showing their true colors. And feeling powerless. Desperate action may follow but they have already lost.

Stop looking for heroes. BE one.
