You and your ilk want to take us full circle. Forward is just going back to pre-1776...King George III and power in the hands of the elite few.
Kind of sad you don't know what you're giving a thumbs up to.
Your full of crap Carol, it's you and your ilk that want to give power to the elite few corporate plutocrats.
Forward is not going in a circle stupid, it's evolving into a more just society where we all enjoy equal rights and protections under the law and the wealthy elites like the Koch brothers or the Mitt Romney's don't get to use their wealth to exploit the rest of us.

There have been at least two radical-left publications named “Vorwaerts”(the German word for “Forward”). One was the daily newspaper of the Social Democratic Party of Germany whose writers included Friedrich Engels and Leon Trotsky. Another was the 1844 biweekly reader of the Communist League. Karl Marx, Engels and Mikhail Bakunin are among the names associated with that publication.
Vladimir Lenin founded the publication “Vpered”(the Russian word for “forward”) in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as “Forward, Soviet”(though also and more literally as “Stride, Soviet”).
Anyone want to give a thumbs up besides USA0000?
She loves the word "Forward" - as if it's something new.
So? They co-opted the word" forward". The Nazis co-opted the word "socialist" even though they were bought and paid for by wealthy industrialists.
You're an idiot Carol.

Didn't say that. Said he legislates by way of executive order and targets political enemy combatants by way of the IRS.
The Patriot Act was passed by Congress under George W. Bush and expanded under Barack H. Obama. The expansion part included spying on us.
Are you still going with that lie that conservative groups were targeted by the IRS at the behest of the President Carol? How come not one conservative group was denied 501(c)(4) status? How come the only groups denied were progressive groups?
No, Obama has not expanded the Patriot Act liar, in fact the DOJ under Holder has put restrictions in the use of National Security Letters that the Bush administration used to pry into what books we got from libraries and booksellers and what sites were being accessed on library computers.

The number of conservatives on the payrolls of the mainstream media are virtually nil. The producers who run the show on the mainstream media are far left liberals.
NBC and MSNBC have had to apologize for misrepresenting the truth so many times, I've lost count. Dan Rather - the mainstream media's rock anchor - was fired for the same.
Hogwash Carol. Every morning when I go to the Op-Ed section of my paper I get to see columns from the likes of Cal Thomas, Charles Krauthammer, George Will, Thomas Sowell and others.
Sixty percent of the nation's daily newspapers print more conservative syndicated columnists every week than progressive syndicated columnists. Only 20 percent run more progressives than conservatives, while the remaining 20 percent are evenly balanced.
In eight of the nine divisions into which the U.S. Census Bureau divides the country, conservative syndicated columnists reach more readers than progressive syndicated columnists in any given week. Only in the Middle Atlantic division do progressive columnists reach more readers each week.
During the last election Campaign most media outlets had more negative coverage of Barack Obama than Mitt Romney.
Here's the breakdown of negative reporting of the President/ Romney;
CBS news: 63%/37%
The Washington Post: 61.8%/ 38.2%
USA Today: 59.6%/ 40.4%
The New York Times: 51.1%/ 42.9%
Mainstream media is corporate. Businesses act in their own self-interests, and in the interests of their shareholders. Big media companies are businesses --$360 billion worth. They want a cultural, labor, legislative, regulatory, and judicial environment that allows them to maximize profits. But progressive politics are an immediate and tangible threat to their interests. In what alternate universe would big media companies permit a liberal bias in their own programming?! "Liberal media bias" is more than a myth -- it's an absurd lie echoing from media corporations themselves, and resonating with the ignorant among us.
Dan Rather was set up by Karl Rove.

There was a better way to reform health care to cover more of the uninsured and provide free care for those below the poverty line that would have cost far less and a hundred times more practical.
The problem is a significant number of the uninsured were young people. They didn't buy insurance because they didn't think they needed it. Before it became a lot more expensive under Obamacare. Do you think they're going to pay more now rather than pay a fine?
So what was that better way Carol? You keep repeating that but don't say what it is? But I do agree, there is a better way, it's called single payer or Medicare for all. Then no one has to worry about getting coverage and companies won't have to be concerned with paying through the nose to cover their employees and can put that cash into growing their businesses and raising salaries.

Plutocrats manipulating them like numbskull marrionettes by the strings of their Ignorance Paranoia and Racism.

This is true. Unfortunately, the small percentage of those opposed because they're far left radical liberals are in a small minority.
Something the far left radical liberals never seem to accept.
The thing you can't seem to accept is that extreme right wing crazies like you are an even smaller minority

Only 10 times (20 years) since 1945 have both branches of Congress and the Presidency been controlled by the same party.
From 1995 to 2000, Republicans were tasked with getting Clinton to move right of center and signing legislation they had enacted that benefited the entire nation.
From 2001 to 2007, we had 9/11, two wars and the housing market collapse to deal with. Don't think squeezing in health reform was even possible.
From 2007 to 2010, Democrats once again ran the show. You might want to check out the balance of power in Congress since 1945.
http://uspolitics.about.com/od/usgovernment/l...
Sure Carol and in the 20's and early 30's Republicans controlled not only the White house but also both houses of Congress. What happened? The Great Depression. That worked out well didn't it?
The next time that happened was from 2001 to 2007 when the economy crashed again. Seeing a pattern here?
George W Bush ignored the warnings that there was going to be an attack on this country and it was he who launched two wars. It was the Republicans who pushed deregulation of the financial markets and refused to regulate mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps.
