Tea Party urges Chris McDaniel to run as write-in after black Democrats ‘steal’ primary

Ironically, voting records show McDaniel crossed party lines in 2003 to vote in the Democratic primary.

McDaniel initially denied doing so, but a spokesman later conceded the candidate had in order to “have a choice in local competitive races.”

As a recovering liberal, I know that many had good intentions.

For people who insist that morality is relative, liberals use more morally loaded terms than you can pile into an environmentally correct Prius. If you disagree with their latest push, you’re on the “wrong side of history.” That’s what Caligula used to say in between orgies as he turned the once-proud senators of the Roman Republic into geldings. Honestly, what part of his being a god and their being mere mortals didn’t they understand?

In my formative years I also noticed that many leftist men, who supposedly bought into feminism, treated women badly. Their idea of being a gentleman was making sure someone – preferably not them – paid for the girl’s abortion while they scored a bag of weed.

One guy, a pacifist, told me in front of his girlfriend that there was nothing worth fighting for – period.“I simply will not add to world conflict,” he said, puffing up his scrawny chest. I asked,“what if someone attacked your girlfriend?” She suddenly got very interested.

“I wouldn’t fight,” he answered smugly. Glancing at his wide-eyed girlfriend, I upped the ante, asking if, with one non-lethal punch, he could save her, would he?“Nope,” he said, folding his arms. I don’t think he got lucky that night, if you know what I mean, which is just as well. I’m pretty sure they weren’t married.

Another striking aspect of modern liberalism is hypocrisy. Many liberals – not all – preach tolerance while acting tyrannically. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), for example, operates an online “hate map” that gives addresses of Christian organizations that support natural marriage. So what if it prompted a man to attempt a mass murder at the Family Research Council? It’s still up.

Finally, liberalism loves – is positively dippy about – the use of force. Since many Americans instinctively resist socialist impulses, liberals are quick to reach for their shotguns. Well, not shotguns, since the Robertsons use them to shoot ducks on “Duck Dynasty,” but rather the big guns of mandates, confiscatory taxes and dictates from bureaucrats intent on transforming America into a replica of East Germany.

Purporting to speak for “the people,” liberals work feverishly to remove freedom of choice – except for having abortions, of course. Their native tongue is “coercion.” Read through the 2,700 pages of the Affordable Care Act and marvel at the mandates backed by fines, which, if not paid, mean jail time. Obamacare is their Disneyland.

- Average household incomes down by about $4000 per year

- GDP down nearly 3% in the 1st quarter of this year
- A 50 year low in the percentage of American's with a job
Yup "poop" no doubt about it, you live in lebural la la land.
Pure stupid has overtaken your last brain cell.If not for Obama we would be in a fully blown depression by now. Including all of our car companies would be gone, 3-maybe 4 wars raging by now, revolt in the streets.You are a complete MORON.Homosexuals would be locked up or deported, women would be having Vaginal probes, the ten commandments would be near every stop sign, immigrants would be imprisoned or shot, guns would be mandatory, along with a marriage requirement that you both have to wear Duck Dynasty hats and camouflage wedding gowns. We would then have Neanderthal weddings, if the bride isn't a virgin you can shoot her and her Ma.

Psychologists use the term “projection” to describe the act of projecting your own feelings, values and foibles on someone or something. There’s truth in this. Hit yourself on the thumb with a hammer and you might say,“Stupid hammer,” or something saltier, depending on proximity of spectators.

On a policy level, liberalism projects its own insecurities, bad habits and lust for power on its opponents. We all do, to some extent. As the Bible says,“there is no one good; no, not one.” But the Left has made it an art form.

At Tea Party rallies in 2009, participants left parks cleaner than they found them and gave police no problems, in stark contrast to rampant criminality at the leftist Occupy rallies. Liberal media vilified Tea Partiers while applauding the passionate “activism” of the Occupy crowd.

Some Tea Party participants at town hall meetings grew animated over Obamacare, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to call them “un-American.” Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) branded Tea Party members “evil mongers.” Mr. Reid now rants madly almost daily about the “billionaire Koch brothers” even as he welcomes George Soros’ largesse for leftist causes.

When liberals are merely eccentric, they’re curiosities. But when they acquire power, they can run over people by the millions while giving themselves a “high five”– for good intentions.

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.

Utah Cannot Ban Same-Sex Marriage, Court Rules

""The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday that Utah cannot ban same-sex marriages.

"We hold that the Fourteenth Amendment protects the fundamental right to marry, establish a family, raise children, and enjoy the full protection of a state's marital laws," the ruling said.

The court ruled 2-1, with Judge Paul J. Kelly, Jr. dissenting.

A stay is in place, so same-sex couples are still prevented from marrying in Utah.

Below, more from the AP:

DENVER (AP)— A federal appeals court for the first time says a state cannot prevent gay people from getting married.

A three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver found that Utah's ban on same-sex marriage violates the U.S. Constitution. The judges upheld a lower court ruling that struck down the ban in December.

They immediately put their ruling on holding so it could be appealed.

The case has been closely watched because it represents the first ruling on gay marriage at the appellate level since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act in June 2013.

The ruling likely will be appealed to the Supreme Court.""



More like the American Taliban, using religion to guide their anti-freedom beliefs.
