Here is the transcript of her speech. Please show us where she made the remarks that you claim. As Silver said, I see you're been brainwashed by MSNBC!

Also notice that all of the accusations she made about Obama and his plans for our future have come to fruition.

I clearly pointed to Silver on the charge you speak of.

Now again, do you think Hitler's atrocity was his socialism?

<quoted text> Banning any firearm is being strict on the issue. The second amendment is open ended, it doesn't say the govt has the right to ban any firearm, only that we have a right to bear them. Why? So the citizens can protect against the very govt that is trying to ban them.
How ironic, Obama campaigned on helping the people which it's how he obtained power. Unfortunately, he has other ideas on how to destroy our economy.....for another holocaust, no, just a govt takeover.....and it's no secret for those who listen to what he says while watching his actions. You've just been indoctrinated and are either blind to what's going on or you agree with govt controling the people instead of people controlling the govt.....which is what our forefathers intended!
Ok, just so we know what you think "strict" means. I was not aware anyone thought "any" meant "strict".

<quoted text> There's your problem, our forefathers founded a Republic, not a democracy. Our founding fathers, under Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution, "guarantees to every state in this union a Republican form of government".... Conversely, the word Democracy is not mentioned even once in the Constitution. Just after the completion and signing of the Constitution, in reply to a woman's inquiry as to the type of government the Founders had created, Benjamin Franklin said, "A Republic, if you can keep it." It's fairly obvious we haven't.
Ok, so split some hairs. Either way, Obama is not a dictator. He was elected using the form of government of a republic. Evidently you hate republics, not just dictatorships.

I knew you could not do it. Clearly it is just your biased and warped view that it is Obama's views/ideology.
If you could not find a single quote from Obama on capitalism and change the words, then your statement was meaningless.
How does one change the words of a "view" or "ideology"?

Unions are the free market approach to the problem. I see you are only for corporations to benefit from the free market tools?

Which proves my point about his use of a teleprompter. Now find one as President where he constantly looked down at his notes. Reagan was notorious for the use of the teleprompter, but somehow you mistakingly think that only liberals and Democrats use this technology, and give Republicans a pass. Another right wing misconception. 99% of Presidential speeches are written by staff members. What is wrong with it's use anyhow?

Labor unions are organized groups of dues-paying workers from the same or related fields who have joined together to present a collective voice in matters of negotiation. They have internally elected leadership and have been a powerful force in the American workplace for many years. By joining together in a group, they provide a more powerful voice than individual workers. Using tactics such as strikes and boycotting allows them to exert pressure on management to have their requests met.

Unions Today

In recent decades union membership has declined. According to the Library of Economics and Liberty, union membership in the private sector had peaked in 1970 with 17 million members. That number had dwindled to 8.8 million by 2002. Public sector jobs have an estimated 37.5 percent unionization rate. It is estimated that in the near future, public sector jobs will house the majority of unionized workers while the private sector will dwindle to numbers comparable to those of a hundred years ago.

For a glance at NC economy. It ain't great, but it could be worse. I think Texas is still beating out NC on growth over all.

You just made my point. Reagan, while looking down at his notes, was speaking HIS words, not some words of a speech writer. Palin, after the teleprompter "mysteriously" quit working a third of the way into her speech, continued on speaking HER words, not words from a speech writer. Both turned out to be great speeches.
We know what happens when Obama speaks his words without a teleprompter.

Second, socialism was just one of his many atrocities.

You conveniently forget that the National Review said" Jeffrey DAHMER is truly a man for our times,a dining expert who never takes himself, or his politics, too seriously".Isn't the Review a"conservative"rag?

It's good to know that you think the difference between a Republic and a Democracy us just "splitting hairs." I'm glad our founding fathers thought more of the issue than you.
I never claimed him to be a dictator, must be another one of your attempts of diversion.
