Look it up, Poseur, they all became republicans after the Civil Rights Acts passed--maybe helped with the Kennedy assassination if you're into conspiracy theories.

Actually, my focus hasn't been more clear.

But I already knew I had to forgive those who trespass against me and was reminded of that again last Sunday, so I forgive you and other liberals for what you're about to do to my country.

Still, you are wrong regardless.

Empty head, let me shine some light on your empty head!

Today 2012, you want millionaire to pay more to solve fiscal our problem, right?

If you get what you want will that solve the problem?

Until when? 2016? 2020? Eternity?

If every millionaire pays 100% of their money in taxes Liberals will STILL comeback in 2016 for more money after wasting all the money in free money to lazy welfare recipients and food stamps!

Several years from now you will be back claiming the rich most again pay their "fair" share again!

See?

Several years ago they asked for more money from the rich I got it!!!

Why they come back for more?

When will they stop?

Removing money from the private sector leaves less money for job growth investment.

The KKK was founded by those from the Southern States.

I know how the right likes to blame Democrats for the Klan but it was a regional thing.

Today, the Klan is considered fart right, not left.

Wow, you people are uninformed.

Marco Rubio will now have to become the nation's leader in 2016.

Thankfully, he isn't a successful and wealthy businessman or a Mormon.

These people have each other to depend on and various charities, but the Red Cross needs as much help from donations as possible.

So much for voter suppression. So much for the enthusiasm gap. So much for the idea that smug, self-appointed arbiters of what is genuinely “American” were going to “take back” the country, as if it had somehow been stolen.

On Tuesday, millions of voters sent a resounding message to the take-it-back crowd: You won’t. You can’t. It’s our country, too.[...]

On Tuesday, the America of today asserted itself. Four years ago, the presidential election was about Barack Obama and history. This time, it was about us—who we are as a nation—and a multihued, multicultural future.

Conservatives know how to keep money and jobs growing, Democrats all they do is waste it in Solindra and constantly ask more and more from small business!

Wielding wedge issues

What the GOP once used to divide now unites Democrats.

Moderates are already arguing that the GOP should simply downplay social issues. "We have to get out of people's lives, get out of people's bedrooms … or else we're going to lose," Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R-Ohio) said on CNN last week, calling the "tea party's" proposed solutions "crap."

We won’t be talking about Ohio, we won’t be talking about Florida or Virginia, because it won’t matter. If Texas is bright blue, you can’t get to two-seventy electoral votes. The Republican Party would cease to exist. We would become like the Whig Party.

The GOP’s Year of Magical Thinking

Now that the election charade is over, will the party accept reality?

The 2012 election was a referendum on two very different approaches to public policy. One approach is to use the best available empirical evidence. The other is to rely on faith and wishful thinking. As in their campaign coverage, conservatives consistently opt for the latter route—a choice that has often blinded them to the reality in front of their noses. Climate change and the failure of supply-side economics are the most obvious examples.

They’re no less wrong about those than they were about the election. And moving forward, one of the great questions facing the body politic is whether conservatism is capable of learning to accept actual evidence rather than relying on faith.

Faith that FOX is telling the truth?

Thank god for the unfaithful.
