When did so many of us become so fearful?

When did we, proud of our melting-pot origins, become determined to keep out immigrant families seeking a chance at the American dream? When did we stop being proud of our government and start hoarding guns to protect us against the invasion of our homes by mythical government storm troopers?

And the only reason he got reelected is because over half of this nation is ignorant with some form of substance abuse problems.
This country is well on its way, down.

No moron, drawing parallels where none exist is pointless. It's that simple.
You're the one doomed to repeat history because you're so stupid. You didn't learn from the womens' movement and the black movement - you still dig in with your prejudice and think you aren't going to lose AGAIN. You still think there is some value in being the last remaining bigots as society evolves past you. You are doomed to be written about with shame in all the history books 20 years from now just like we are ashamed of the KKK today.
You can take generalizations from the 1920's, but to suggest very specific financial issues are the same is just stupid.
You are making comments about something you say you didn't even read, and you're calling ME stupid and moron? I learned much from the women's movements and the black movement (I was there). One major thing I learned is that social change causes unintended consequences. The more radical the movement, the greater the unintended consequences. The gay movement is the most radical one to be advanced during my considerable life time. FYI, I supported both the women's movement and the black movement. The black movement was great with Martin Luther King until the socialists shanghai'd the movement. The women's movement accomplished a lot of good things until the socialists did the same thing with it. The gay movement has never been shanghai'd. It has been socialist from the beginning. Unintended consequences will be more pronounced as a result.

My father in law and his wife were also at our wedding, and he treats me as well as any of his other children or their spouses.
However he, like you, lost it when Obama got elected and threw rational thinking out the window in favor of this whole doom and gloom fantasy you all have going on, as if the world will die if not led by white people.
Gee, I'm white, and I'm not threatened. Guess I just have balls.
And my grandparents knew better than to fall for all this crap. Grandma is doing just fine, thank you, without hoarding gold and buying guns.(What are you going to do when the financial systems collapse, bring a piece of gold to the supermarket and shave off some little bits for a bag of carrots?)
When the end of the world comes, so be it. I'm ready. I'm very satisfied with my life and I am right with God. There's no sense resisting the inevitable when it happens.
But it's not happening now. You're just nuts.
Have I said anything about the end of the world? No, I haven't. We're not talking about the end of the world here. What on earth good would it do to hoard gold for that? We're talking about the collapse of the monetary system. Far better minds than mine, know that that is not beyond the realm of possibility.
My feelings have NOTHING to do with having a "black president." I can think of several black men that I would love to have as president - Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Clarence Thomas, and Dr. Ben Carson would all be way better than Obama and better than any white men I can think of on the spur of the moment. Gold, BTW, is an investment. You don't take your stocks and bonds to the store to buy carrots with either. That was a really bizarre question about the carrots.

You know zero.
1. I am very far from ignorant. I am well-informed and intelligent.
2. I am not a liberal. I have been registered independent since I was 18 years old, long before it became a fad.
3. Of course I am taking care of myself as well as my husband.
4. I am not benefiting from an elderly man's brainwashed disaster. I'm dismayed by it. I'm disgusted that you are so impervious to the facts that you support an elderly man taking these ridiculous steps and wasting his remaining time. I think he should forget about leaving anything to his kids (two of them are obnoxiously waiting for it) and instead should go to Europe with his wife and enjoy his remaining time.
You are an ass.

Sweetie, your "quote" is actually a bit of a Mormon marriage, wedding something he said in 1981 to something he said waaaaaay back in 1964. Like Jane and Nancy, as far as we know, he never did them at the same time.

What Saint Ronald actually said in 1981 was:

"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price."

It's from his first inaugural address:

His "liberals are ignorant" quote actually dates back to a 1964 speech when he was going off on the "War on Poverty"

I think the war to topple Hussein,(surely one of the most evil, bloody dictators of modern times), was eminently justified and long overdue.
Hussein invaded Iran.
Hussein invaded Kuwait.
Hussein invaded Saudi Arabia.
Hussein attacked Israel.
Exactly HOW MANY countries must a dictator invade and/or attack, before it's justified to get rid of him ???
DEMOCRAT Roosevelt had Congress declare war on Germany in World War II even though Germany had not attacked us !
DEMOCRAT Truman had Congress authorize a "police action" (a war) against North Korea who did NOT attack us, yet we fought with them for 3 bloody years, and we STILL have troops there !(It ended in an armistice, and a peace treaty has NEVER been signed).
The North Vietnamese did NOT attack us in the Gulf Of Tonkin, but DEMOCRATIC Preseident Johnson LIED and SAID THEY DID to involve us in a war (which we lost) that dragged on for another 9 years and cost more than 50,000 Americna lives.
Funny, how teh DEMOCRATS conveniently forget those facts.
Meanwhile, the Obamaniac is claiming "executive authority" (a term coined by that WONDERFUL President, Richard Nixon, I think) to KILL American citizens abroad without indictment, trial, nor conviction. Care t point out where in teh U.S. Constitution, or federal law The Obamaniac has THAT right ?!
It seems all a POTUS has to do to get a free pass, is to put a "DEMOCRAT" label on himself, and he can do ANYTHING he wants, INCLUDING MURDER AMERICAN CITIZENS. Where's teh ACLU ?!

You think people who don't support "gay marriage" are the last remaining bigots? The fights for pedophilia rights and bestiality rights are heating up, riding on the coat tails of the gay movement. Aren't the people who oppose those going to be called bigots as well, pedophobes, animal phobes, what? Or is there going to be some new juicy name for those in opposition? Whatever new name is used, I suspect that good old bigot will still be thrown out there.

Dr. Ben Carson! Now there's a rising star. As for the end of the world, we might better hope for that than the financial collapse. A lot less suffering from it, at least for some people.

Yes, they are and he may have said it twice, but try and find the original source for them actually having been said at the same time. The "quote" is only about 3 years old and the only source ever given for it is Ronald Reagan, no date, no place, no context. Look for yourself.
