Connecting the dots.

Social conservatives have long pushed for states rights. Also ending abortion. Of late, one more item has been thrown into the frothy mix. Ending contraceptives. Add these together, and what do you have?

The social Conservatives think that if abortion and contraceptives are ended, on a state by state basis, blue states will retain abortion and contraceptive use, along with all advanced civilizations. Red states will end abortion, and contraceptives. Thus, white people will stop the demographic shift to minorities.

They invoke God, and all manner of justifications, but demographics is their focus. Sure you can stave off all those minorities with redistricting, and all the usual disenfranchisement tricks. But, those are only palliatives. The final solution to all those clamoring for service from their government, is birthrates.

And even if it doesnt stop all those eaters{voters} globally, it sure as hell will stop them dominating in the red states. Then, they can wall them off.

I see subliminal moves in all these directions. I am not sure even those pushing in these directions know what they are doing. I believe this also is why the right intends to brand DEMS as racists, and fights so mightly the racist/bigot label.

As I always say, It's the demographics, stupid.

Republicans disenfranchise themselves, all but two candidates sue.

I hope we ram that home. Those bunch of lawyer chasing crybabies should be enjoying their just desserts. Instead, they start a flurry of frivolous lawsuits. Can I get a call for tort reform? MAke them choke, as they eat their jim CROW.

"A little thump therapy never hurt anybody."

Iowa state Rep. Clel Baudler predicted that potential protestors at his caucus site in Adair County should expect a response that "will be swift and it will be sure."

"Since I'm not a state trooper anymore, they probably won't be handcuffed - but I have friends," Baudler said. "If an officer asks for help, I will help, believe me."

"We're just not going to tolerate in rural Iowa what's going on in the big metropolitan areas," Baudler said. "A little thump therapy never hurt anybody."


boss man lookin mighty mean.

I say make Ron Paul a frontrunner. Lets disect his rhetoric.

He is allowed to spout no true scotsman pie in the sky. Always saying, like the REAL COMMUNISTS, that as soon as opposition is vanquished, a romantic utopian era will commence.

When you get into the nuts and bolts, PEOPLE WILL DIE. As has been seen. The Libertarian party has gained the keys to the Rethug washroom and has scrawled all their trashtalk upon the toilet stalls.

I have been debating libertarians for years. I do not fear their sway. I know their soft spots. Bring it on.

And please, enough with the Ron Paul troll accusations.
Should we not dispatch with the Paul poo in rational fashion, the Libertarian party may be given the keys to the Rethug klown kar for reals.

Those slackers signed up for more loan than they could afford.

This is the conventional wisdum from the right.

So did my parents, and most of yours. Back in the days of the american dream, you extended yourself. You worked hard, and EXPECTED the system to start elevating you into the middleclass.

Even though my parents lash out at the slackers, they tell their story as a man and wife, that bought a house without enough security, had kids starting when still employed pumping gas. Should they, or any of our parents done so now, they too would be the subject of spitting and ridicule.

And yet, those that have already climbed the ladder, before it was yanked up, insist that the american dream is the same. That bootstraps have not rotted or been turned into whips.

Without faith, that the system will function to the benefit of the worker, even if not at this moment, we are already a feudal society. Should this lack of faith be institutionalized, only revolution can restore it.

Make your choice corporate america. Real bootstraps, or revolution. And make it snappy. My boots are draggin ass 10 paces behind me. With all of us worked to the bone, and bloodshot, it is simple to pick out the whites of your eyes.

Social Contract. It's what the fighting is all about.

We should dispense with the preliminaries, and affix our bayonettes. The right intends to smash the social contract.

Yes, this includes ending representation for you. If you are not for authoritarian dictation{malign neglect} of what constitutes your just desserts. All the rest is just details.

The social contract is an intellectual device intended to explain the appropriate relationship between individuals and their governments. Social contract arguments assert that individuals unite into political societies by a process of mutual consent, agreeing to abide by common rules and accept corresponding duties to protect themselves and one another from violence and other kinds of harm.[citation needed]

Social contract theory played an important historical role in the emergence of the idea that political authority must be derived from the consent of the governed. The starting point for most social contract theories is a heuristic examination of the human condition absent from any political order, usually termed the “state of nature”. In this condition, individuals' actions are bound only by their personal power and conscience. From this shared starting point, social contract theorists seek to demonstrate, in different ways, why a rational individual would voluntarily give up his or her natural freedom to obtain the benefits of political order.


Heres where Ron Paul comes in:

Voluntarism According to the will theory of contract, a contract is not presumed valid unless all parties agree to it voluntarily, either tacitly or explicitly, without coercion. Lysander Spooner, a 19th century lawyer and staunch supporter of a right of contract between individuals, in his essay No Treason, argues that a supposed social contract cannot be used to justify governmental actions such as taxation, because government will initiate force against anyone who does not wish to enter into such a contract. As a result, he maintains that such an agreement is not voluntary and therefore cannot be considered a legitimate contract at all.

The smirking Santorum reference has to end.

Yes, it was cute and fun. Now lets stop it. We referred to Santorum by a homosexual{mostly} byproduct. This essentially is trying to defame him by calling him FAGGOT. It isn't very liberal, progressive, or compassionate to the LGBT dignity.

Plus, how dare we throw Santorum into their camp! They don't want him.

Hey Perry, how do you like being disenfranchised? Not so much? Gonna sue?

All us Dems are just trying to get illegals to vote, right? There is no danger of manipulation or unintended consequences, right?

Passed a law against double dipping? Good for you. Oh, doesnt apply to you personally. SHAME.

Why dont you just secede from the primary? Better yet, use your second ammendment right to gov redress.

I REALLY endorse this critique of your lameass. Loser.

WTF, Palin goes after the Obama christmas card for including their dog last night. Then, this mornin

The moneychangers are driving Obama from their temples.

And I say good. If we put him near mandate territory, he will act like they are not of campaign value. Which they aren't.

Four More Years. With political capital to spend. Community organizer roots are hard to shirk. Especially when the powerful are out to get you.
