No Robespierre had a definite direct..first was to kill anyone who was rich and supported the monarchy...second to kill anyone who opposed the directory...The trouble he had was each execution created more enemies
If Marxism were an establish ideology I believe he would have given it a warm bloody embrace

Obamacare can be done away with by having 3/4 of the House, and Senate vote against it, and 3/4 of the States to vote it down. That is how we got rid of Prohibition. It took 14 years. So just because we have Obamacare today is no guarantee we will have it forever. When the people get a good look at it up close, and personal they will demand it be repealed.

Yes good one. We will end the liberal party.
How are you going to do that? After all the GOP has taken great pains to alienate women, minorities, and the poor. Those groups are increasingly out weighing the demographics of white, male, middle class.

I think you guys have elected your last President for awhile. No matter who the Democrats put up in the next election (even Hillary, God forbid) you guys have pretty much shot yourselves in the foot.

The GOP wants to alienate the majority of women by telling them what they can do with their bodies, alienate minorities instead of getting them on board with their party, and the poor... well they have always hated the poor.

Good luck.

You don't need a constitutional amendment all you need is 50%+1 in both houses, which is a much smaller margin....... and a President willing to sign....
...ahhh never mind ...great plan it will keep you guys busy

I hate to tell you dude, but the next president will probably be a Democrat again. The GOP alienates the majority of women, minorities, and low income people. The days when white, male, middle class and rich folks were in the vast majority are pretty much over. The country is a lot more diverse that it has been in the past, and the GOP refuse to change with the times. It is one of the things that cost them the last election, and they still aren't wising up and doing anything to fix the problem.

yes, you are right...trouble is, those same people (white, male, middle class and rich) pay most of the taxes, so when they are gone, either taxed to death, dead, or moved away, what are you brilliant libs gonna do for revenue to fund your freebies for voters?

Myself and many i know, are as you've described and we have no desire to follow a party, that would allow their teaparty faction, do as much damage and threaten our economy.....so then, i guess with the GOP, it's about which white, middle class wealthy?......
