Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Sorry folks, but I could spend all day responding to this one post.
Political parties didn't even exist in 1789. And George Washington despised the idea of political associations - believing they pitted one group of citizens against another. In his farewell speech in 1796 he said:
"The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish Government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established Government."
Washington probably wouldn't have been a liberal because Democrats are all about party and party power.
Alexander Hamilton was extremely opposed to a decentralized government and would have fit nicely into the far left's radical category today.
Thomas Jefferson and James Madison believed the central government's role was strictly national defense, international and interstate commerce, treaties and a postal system but that EVERYTHING else was a state or local matter.
Solidly, both would have been conservative material today.
Ben Franklin was a true centrist - more the philosopher than politician.
John Hancock held the same views as Jefferson and Madison but wasn't politically motivated to enter national politics choosing instead to serve as governor of his state for 11 years.
So PDupont's assertion that all Founding Fathers would have been in a Hillary for President 2016 ad is preposterous.
Sure Carol and the Republicans aren't about the power of their party, that's why Republican states have been attempting to suppress the votes of those more likely to vote Democratic.
Here's an interesting quote from Thomas Jefferson;
"It should seem then that it must be because of the enormous wealth, which places them above attention to the increase of their revenues, that I am conscious that an equal division of property is impracticable, but [that] the consequences of this enormous inequality producing so much misery to the bulk of mankind, legislators cannot invent too many devices for subdividing property. Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher portions of property in geometrical progression as they rise."
The letter, written Sept. 28, 1785, is by Thomas Jefferson to James Madison. Jefferson was describing the conditions in France before the Revolution.
Wow! sounds like wealth redistribution to me.

Once again Carol you're confusing labels like Democrat and Republican with political philosophy.
Obviously, you are the confused one:

Frederick Douglass said, "I am a black, died-in-the-wool Republican and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom ...

The Republican Party remains the Party of Freedom.

The Democrat Party has become the party of propaganda, dependency, ignorance & hate.

You are a prime example.

Actually, your remarks are stupid DumbDave. There in fact is nothing in the constitution that says all people must earn a certain amount. The federal government has and is especially now exceeding by far what was envisioned. Your Socialist Party is the nanny intrusive state for sure.
How can you be so stupid? Socialism has failed every time in history, yet you morons are repeating history. You are the definition of insanity.
Actually, I have never said anything abut people earning a certain amount beyond supporting a higher minimum wage.

I know of no liberals who think people should all earn the same.

This is just another fake story you brainless right whiners make up & all gather around the fire & jerk off to.

I have some news, there are lots of socialistic programs here in the US that have been supported by Republicans so I guess you must be a socialist.

There are certain issues best addressed by the government.

Ancient history Carol, the Republican Party isn't remotely the same as it was under Lincoln or Theodore Roosevelt. It has been steadily co-opted by big business and the religious right.
At any rate Carol, we weren't talking about Democrats and Republicans, we were talking
about progressive vs conservative political philosophies.
You really need a history lesson. Corporations have been part of every political machine since the very beginning. To put your nose into your own diaper, the banksters on Wall Stree that collapsed the economy gave so much money to Obama, it was only Christopher Dodd in the entire Congress they gave more money to. The largest automanufacturer in the world is so close to the Democrat Party, you can't see daylight between them.
Religion has always been part of the political landscape. The only difference is, today, the Democrats have adopted Islam and accepted their obligation to the Arab Islamists to be at war with Christianity.
The Democrats ally themselves with a religion that practices slavery, denies women rights, and condones, even promotes killing anyone not of their faith, and you're so goddam stupid you think that is progressive? That's as regressive and conservative as you can get.
The Democrats are run by Marxist communists who adhere to an impossible ideology that has proven itself to be a failed philosophy in every instance it was instituted without exception, and you call yourself progressive? Marxism enslaves populations in poverty being ruled by an elite cadre who exempt themselves from the draconian rules they institute, and you call someone else a conservative?

Please tell us you're just pretending to be this stupid. You are about as medieval radical conservative as anyone can possibly be.
We, on the other hand, adhere to the liberal and progressive ideas expressed in the Constitution, guaranteeing everyone individual rights and a limited government.

I just have to ask. What is it about radical medieval conservatism that is so appealing to you?
You can't really be this stupid.

So, you agree that no employer should be forced to pay more than what they think a person is worth, right? Then why do we even have a minimum wage? Why don't we just get rid of it?

....Another one of those <and Progressives will be mad because Fox told them> posts...

"Central Park in New York City broke a 118-year old record on Jan. 7 when the temperature dropped to 5 degrees. Strong winds pushed the wind chill well below zero. Central Park had a record low temp of 6 since 1896.

La Guardia Airport in Queens also set a record low of 4 degrees. The old record of 11 degrees for Jan. 7th was set in 1968."

Something in my head tells me you have no life and have always been a loser, son.

So what will you be doing productive today, lowlife? Venting your hate on Topix, stealing other posters names and using your proxy service to carry out your juvenile antics?

Don't forget to chant for your Messiah, Hmmmm, hmmmmm, hmmmmm.

ROTFLMAO!!!!
