You never told us why you choose to belong to a political party that built itself on treason and spit on veterans, then slandered them with lies.
You pretend to have military experience. Were you one of the frauds pretending to be Vietnam veterans in the so-called "Vietnam Veterans Against the War" that invented a system of lies to slander real veterans with?
Or, are you just not old enough to have done that, son.
Don't make me take my belt off and tan your hide.
I know son. Non cons fought in the American Revolution while cons simply stayed home, loyal to the king.

Do you mean "virtues of Western and American-style liberalism" as the specifically protected individual rights defined in the Constitution?
So, please tell us why Obama is in rebellion against the Constitution, and is only interested in the friendship of the Suni Wahhabist terrorists who's intent is to drag the world's population back to the middle ages.
Then, tell us why you support this lunatic idea.

A better way to fix the system is developing a mechanism by which firms can fail without causing unacceptable damage to the rest of the economy. The intent of the “orderly liquidation authority” in the Dodd–Frank law.
Breaking up the banks is a simple answer to a complex problem and, like many simple answers, it is the wrong one likely to do much harm for little or no benefit. Too-big-to-fail should be ended, but breaking up banks is not the way to do it.
That was Romney's solution to GM. Automakers to go through managed bankruptcy and the federal government provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing.
Private financing for the bankruptcies could have also been possible with federal loan guarantees as opposed to direct loans.
Whether it would have worked or not, we'll never know.
Well, that is what Romney claimed during the debates.

He had a different tune earlier.

<quoted text>Obama is a communist, imo.
Actually, based on his past affiliations described in his book and in his own words writing that he carefully selected his friends in college who were Marxists, he is a closet Marxist.

Obama's stated religion, Black Liberation Theology, suspiciously leans toward Marxist roots.

You might find this article interesting...

Or this one...

Or this...

Black Liberation theologian James Cone wrote in his book, For My People, "the Christian faith does not possess in its nature the means for analyzing the structure of capitalism. Marxism as a tool of social analysis can disclose the gap between appearance and reality, and thereby help Christians to see how things really are."

Depending on how brainwashed you are.

At best, the recent revelations concerning Prism and telephone surveillance might deter potential recruits to terrorist causes from using the most visible parts of the Internet. Beyond that, the government’s efforts are much more dangerous to civil liberties than they are to al-Qaeda and other organizations like it.

The top counter-terrorism czar under Presidents Clinton and Bush – Richard Clarke – notes:

The argument that this sweeping search must be kept secret from the terrorists is laughable. Terrorists already assume this sort of thing is being done. Only law-abiding American citizens were blissfully ignorant of what their government was doing. ALL UNDER OBAMA

The dread of having to deal with the scumbags who sell cars is the biggest reason people put off purchase of a new car.

Galt looks forward to the day when the consumer can order directly from the manufacturer and cut out the obscene profits of the low-life car dealers.

I'll help you pack...

You're just another treasonous fraud that managed to not get hung during the Cold War.

By the way, you do realize you are actually a radical conservative, don't you? You think the government should be all powerful without limits, should enforce only the laws that their whim is consistent with, there should be no individual rights guaranteed to all members of the population, and you ally yourself with medieval tyrants that still practice slavery. Your idea of what life should be like is an Orwellian dictatorship.
You are as radical of a conservative as can exist.

You'd know that if you had an education and could actually define words in the English language.

Now, which bags do you want me to help you with first?

You are probably correct that America will never become another Nazi Germany but that doesn't preclude America becoming something as bad or worse but in a different way.
It is easier to use Nazi Germany history as a model of what we don't want to become than to plan against becoming something so evil that the world has never yet seen.
You people are certainly working hard at it son.

Today, according to new Pew Research Center data not yet released in a report, 88% of Germans say they have confidence in Obama to do the right thing in world affairs. In stark contrast, just 14% had confidence in Bush during his last year in office. Across Europe, Obama has received more favorable reviews than Bush, but the gap between the two American leaders has been especially wide among Germans.

Bush who?
