The campaign handed out 6,000 tickets for free food and the free- handout-loving socialists of Iowa lined up to fill their hog bellies in exchange for their vote.

Mine was the truth, which always hurts the hyper-sensitive cons when challenged with it. Your opinion, however:

"Everyone knows it's the liberals who are hand-out loving socialists..."

was the negative, trained-seal response you've been conditioned to give. Attaboy.

Gosh, it looked like a LOT of hand-out loving conservatives who flocked to Ames and happily accepted free bus rides, free food, and free drinks provided by the too-eager candidates.

Why do you suppose candidates are forbidden to have burger stands at regular polling places?

Good luck with that! The theocrat Bachmann will be subsumed by the uber-theocrat Perry. How ironic that those who want a theocrat in office will probably not support Mittens,'cuz he's not the correct "type" of theocrat.

Get used to Obama!

Was their an erection to be purchased in Ames that is akin to the Smokes, Beer, and a Bus ride the Leftists give to the dregs in order to get them to vote for the Democrat candidate in "real" erections?...or are you just doing the child like comparables trying to link a campaign with an Erection?....again.

All part of the opposition's truth campaign that awaits her. Will her own party opponents have guts to call her out? She'll be embarrassed back into her burrow where she belongs.

They won't. They'll be bullied by threats of being called RINOs, being labeled "anti-female," or being judged "not true" to the Movement.

In an earlier time, the party would summarily dismiss wacko candidates -- but now the Republican Party IS the Party of the Whacked!

Setting the Stage for Fascism in America

The beginning of the story of American fascism starts with the conclusion of the Civil War and the start of Reconstruction. This is a complicated story in itself and one that I am not going to go into in detail. A very interesting thing about American fascism is the way in which American society has been reflected in the evolution of Pledge of Allegiance itself.

The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy. The Pledge was written by Bellamy for a national Columbus Day celebration ceremony, the program of which was published in The Youth's Companion magazine. It reflected his idea of a united America after the Civil War. At the time the country was still very much divided because of the conflict between North and South. The Pledge reinforced the idea of ONE NATION, something important to many after the Civil War and the attempts of the South to secede.
Francis Bellamy was vice president of the Society of Christian Socialists. This was an organization that promoted the view that society should be organized based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and was critical of capitalism and individualism as corrupting forces in society. Francis Bellamy was actually the cousin of another influential Christian Socialist activist of the time, Edward Bellamy. Both Francis and Edward were involved in the Nationalist movement as well. Some 167 Nationalist Clubs sprang up around the United States after Edward Bellamy published his best selling book, Looking Backward.

Both men were involved in these clubs, though Edward was better known at the time. Looking Backward was essentially Edward's "answer" to the recently written Communist Manifesto. It was a book that attacked the positions of Communism, declared that any good society had to be founded on God's word, and basically took up some of the positions of the Socialist movement, but from a Christian perspective.

The Nationalist and Christian Socialist movements of the Bellamys were their "alternatives" to the Marxist movements of the day. While the Marxists were promoting rebellion against the State, the Bellamys promoted duty to the State.

After Columbus Day became a nationally recognized holiday on July 21, 1892, Francis Bellamy and others involved in the Nationalist movement helped to put together a national school program for the celebration of the event.

National School Celebration of Columbus Day - The Official Programme, was published in the September 8, 1892 issue of The Youth's Companion. As there was no real national means to distribute information to all the schools in the country at the time, this publication served as the means to organize the official events. The subtext of the article title read:

Let every pupil and friend of the Schools who reads The Companion, at once present personally the following programme to the Teachers, Superintendents, School Boards, and Newspapers in the towns and cities in which they reside. Not one School in America should be left out in this Celebration.

The program for the National Celebration of Columbus Day was to be the first unified national celebration in the country's history, with every single school taking part in the ceremony according to a time table in perfect unison. The address, also written by Francis Bellamy, which was to be given at a certain part of the ceremony, started out:

IMO - Stephen Colbert said it best on his show last night:
“Bachmann got a commanding 80 percent of the votes she paid for. That’s pretty impressive. I say this proves she could win the general election assuming she can get 50 million voters into a field, pack them with barbecue, and let their children pet Randy Travis.”

-The nation’s first black Secretary of State, Colin Powell, last week apologized for publicly providing much of the misleading information that paved the way for the Bush administration’s war against Iraq.

In the lead-up to the 2003 U.S. invasion, Powell delivered a powerful presentation at the United Nations convincing much of the U.S. and the world that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction.

In a recent interview with the Arab media organization, Al Jazeera, an independent broadcaster owned by the state of Qatar, Powell admitted,“It turned out, as we discovered later, that a lot of sources that had been attested to by the intelligence community were wrong.”

He added,“I deeply regret that the information – some of it … was wrong.”

Critics have accused President Bush and administration officials of intentionally providing the public with false information about Iraq and its then-President Saddam Hussein in order to justify a predetermined plan to invade the oil-rich country.

The U.S. has so far lost 6,000 soldiers and may have spent well over $1 trillion as a result of the war in Iraq. While numerous groups have estimated the number of Iraqis who died during the conflict, the numbers have varied greatly and are difficult to confirm. One official group, the Iraq Body Count Project, has estimated that between March 2003 and August 2011, 150, 726 Iraquis, civilian and combatant, died as a result of the war.

Powell served as U.S. Secretary of State from 2002 to 2005
