The Democratic Party doesn't represent anyone who doesn't walk in lockstep with their far left progressive ideology. It's not the same Democratic Party as it was 30 years ago.

They represent a nanny state, higher taxes and bigger government. Does this represent you too?

You can't say you hate the fact that people deny mistakes when they are crystal clear if you still support this president, his adminstration, Obamacare and the coverups unless you're talking about yourself.

Stop sounding like Karl Marx, there is no workable alternative to capitalism, it's produced the most successful, wealthy society for hundreds of millions ever, even the non producers, if you have an alternative , I'd love to hear about it.
Capitalism works just fine on building a nations growth but it can't go on forever as it needs growth to survive. How much do you want to see the USA expand too ? 600 million perhaps,??? well its not going to happen unless you open the flood gates at the borders. Then there is the environmental price to pay, the planet is sure paying for Capitalism giving no value to the environment now. Yet you closed minded morons still don't want to give it value. A farmers land full of trees should be worth as much as one with the oil underground.. BUT NO! and this is where capitalism fails miserably, there is a high cost to pay for cheap. Corporate USA and Corporate Europe moved to China chasing cheap and what was the real price of that ? Not only in job loses but Environmental damage that is ignored.
Man has slowly but surely destroyed the planet all in the name of growth and feeding that capitalism machine. Soon with the extreme weather of climate change, the food bowls will no longer be reliable and there starts a whole new crisis once there is mass population shifts.

Lying imbecile:
I get so tired of educating those who refuse to acknowledge the truth. For the last time, the Bush Tax cuts resulted in 54 straight months of economic growth. The recession occurred after Democrats gained control of Congress and began wildly borrowing and spending trillions of dollars and implementing their bone-headed and supremely irresponsible fiscal policy.
The economic numbers don't lie. Take a look for yourself:
http://forecast-chart.com/chart-gdp-rate.html
The economy grew every single quarter until Q4 of 2008. That's solid continual economic growth that directly resulted from the Bush Tax Cuts.
The economy didn't take a shit until a year and a half after Democrats took over Congress and their socialist policies were in place.
Look any Economist worth his/her salt know all of the Bush growth was as fake as presidency. It was done with debt, there was never a budget that even looked like breaking even and by the end of his term the WORLD WAS BANKRUPT! Great Job, Wall St ran the white house and the military machine sucked the treasury dry. So NO ONE, I mean NO ONE except you Fox assimilated Borg drones believe Bush took charge on anything.

Former President Jimmy Carter in recalling former President George W. Bush's many contributions to Africa including HIV/AIDS relief and a peace treaty in Sudan, at the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library, said he was "filled with admiration" about Bush's push to help "the most needy people on earth."

It was a pretty amazing moment here on video.

Just wish he had been more supportive of Iraqi human rights when he was criticizing Bush for freeing them from Saddam's tyranny.

carol, are you aware that higher taxes specially on the wealthy cut down the deficit? Or you're just ignoring the cards on the table and shooting off blanks? It's time to stop big corporation greed that only affects the middle class and the poor, notice most big corporations support republican candidates who of course support capitalism, if we had a republican president now, the gas price would have been well over 5 dlls.

Give us a break Carol! As bad as Saddam was there were 1000's less dead under his reign since Bush's so called liberation. Every day a new car bomb kills multiple ppl and its become so common the news doesn't even cover it sometimes. This is not counting 100's of thousands killed during the war. In Saddam's time had any bomber dared to try their hand knew Saddam would wipe out their family tree afterwards. So all this crap we see now was kept in check. Besides it was also useful for the US to have Saddam keeping the Iranians on their toes. All this went out the window when Bush liberated Iraq. Iran knew they didn't have to worry about them any-more so concentrated on their nuke arsenal and supply weapons to insurgents to keep the Iraq government in disarray. Over all I'd say its about as negative in outcome as you can get for the US and the West. So well done Bush, another republican lead foreign policy failure!

The Government-Created Subprime Mortgage Meltdown
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
Yeah, every now and then some drags this article out like it's some kind of gem but in reality it's a piece of dreck. 50% of subprime loans were made by institutions that weren't subject to federal regulation or oversight and another 30% were made by those not subject to routine examination or supervision.

The Department of "Injustice", Eric Holder, made sure the FBI were forced to step back from getting any more information from the Boston bomber. He read him his Miranda rights personally.
Before Mr. Holder told the terrorist he had the right to remain silent, however, the FBI did discover there were 6 more bombs prepared to go off in Times Square.
Too bad we will never learn of any other plots that might have been under way.
Carol, not only are you a liar but an incompetent one as well. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was read his rights by Federal Magistrate Marianne Bowler when he was arraigned in his hospital room the day after he was charged as part of standard legal procedure. Eric Holder didn't read anyone their rights in this case liar.
The basis for Miranda rights is found in the Fifth Amendment to the Constitutions that clearly states that;
“[No person]…shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…”
There were no six bombs set to go off in Times Square stupid, the bombers made a spur of the moment decision to do this but were prevented in doing so. They never got to Times Square nitwit so that's another lie. With one of the bombers dead and the other in custody any other plots they may have been planning is a moot point.
You're an idiot Carol!
