You people that state that are phonies. Big FN Phonies.
These are the same clowns that have the Flags Up. Complain on Talk Radio day and night. Quickly label everyone else unAmerican.
But one election doesn't go your way. America is broken.
You people know NOTHING about fighting, or what it truly is to be an American. I'm glad this election exposed you people for the True Fake Phonies you really are.
God bless True Americans!!!!
WTF are you blathering about, nitwit? There is nothing you have said that has any context, any truth, or any basis for your retarded comments. You must be 15-year old.

You'd rather they get paid by the gov...I mean taxpayers...for years while they enjoy their new found freedom and pursue a career in say art or music. Health care on our dime, too. Pelosi said so.
And you stupid, treasonous fks want to add a few more million illegals to the payroll.

They think we're stupid because they know they can get away with anything.
"Power corrupts...absolute power corrupts absolutely."
From the president down to the Attorney General to the IRS to the State Department to the Senate Majority Leader to the race-baiting Congressional Democrats to the mainstream media - absolute power has never corrupted more absolutely in our history.
Unless more of us wise up, they will continue to get away with it. Corruption feeds on apathy and ignorance - and this arrogant administration knows the cupboard is full enough.

You should listen to Galt; he's right on that, but we';re grateful for you teapartyers who keep the fire going on gay marriage and abortion. You'll never get a candidate in the White House.
Nothing ever changes for these self-identified welfare frauders...nice to see your keeping up the good fight, but I can't stand the creeps long enough to comment to them.

As soon as the issue of gay marriage and abortion come up in politics faith/religion factors in, you know this.

Though I agree, "government" should not control people's personal lives - unfortunately they do. Whether from the left or the right.

And if you think Secular Humanism is not a belief system synonymous with a Religion, you're wrong. It has all the components of a Faith Belief System/Religion.

<quoted text>During the Vietnam war many, very many Mormons received conscientious objector status while many more were excused for mission duty. My platoon's medic was Mormon and a conscientious objector who was in disbelief that he would end up up serving in the field as a medic in an Infantry company.
He had hoped for a noncombat role.
He was a very good, brave medic and never did carry a weapon but would hump ammo when asked to.
That's interesting. The objection would be on an individual basis. The church is anti war, but discourages conscientious objection. The church does recognize the individual's right to object.

A Mormon tank commander/instructor I knew cold cocked an insubordinate trainee at Ft. Knox.
You get all kinds.

Signs the Progressive 'you did not build that economy' is on fire!

'The Commerce Department said on Wednesday gross domestic product fell at a 2.9 percent annual rate, the economy's worst performance in five years, instead of the 1.0 percent pace it had reported last month.'
