<quoted text> Modern history shows that even what was billed at the beginning as a conservative President ends up being Liberal.
Take Reagan for example. He is held up as the golden standard of the GOP conservative Presidents. But while in office he increased the nations debt by 186%. He granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. He changed the law to force Health Care Providers to treat those without insurance and illegals.
Bush 41 after vowing during his campaign not to raise taxes, raised taxes when he realized it was the only way to pay off Reagan's debt. He signed into law some of the most strict environmental changes that even today are effecting fossil fuel power plants to such degree they are closing.
Bush 43 made Law of the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan that has cost $1 trillion so far.
So if you research all the law changes under Repub Presidents you'll find they turn more liberal while in office.
But they didn't turn the coffers up side down and dump all the $$$$ out just to mess with the country.
Being Liberal to an extent is fine, but we're talking about living under COMMUNISM here.You know that.

Reaganomics for Dummies:
When President Reagan entered office in 1981, he faced actually much worse economic problems than President Obama faced in 2009. Three worsening recessions starting in 1969 were about to culminate in the worst of all in 1981-1982, with unemployment soaring into double digits at a peak of 10.8%. At the same time America suffered roaring double-digit inflation, with the CPI registering at 11.3% in 1979 and 13.5% in 1980 (25% in two years). The Washington establishment at the time argued that this inflation was now endemic to the American economy, and could not be stopped, at least not without a calamitous economic collapse.
1. Cut tax rates to restore incentives for economic growth, which was implemented first with a reduction in the top income tax rate of 70% down to 50%, and then a 25% across-the-board reduction in income tax rates for everyone. The 1986 tax reform then reduced tax rates further, leaving just two rates, 28% and 15%.
2. Spending reductions, including a $31 billion cut in spending in 1981, close to 5% of the federal budget then, or the equivalent of about $175 billion in spending cuts for the year today. In constant dollars, nondefense discretionary spending declined by 14.4% from 1981 to 1982, and by 16.8% from 1981 to 1983. Moreover, in constant dollars, this nondefense discretionary spending never returned to its 1981 level for the rest of Reaganís two terms! Even with the Reagan defense buildup, which won the Cold War without firing a shot, total federal spending declined from a high of 23.5% of GDP in 1983 to 21.3% in 1988 and 21.2% in 1989. Thatís a real reduction in the size of government relative to the economy of 10%.
3. Anti-inflation monetary policy restraining money supply growth compared to demand, to maintain a stronger, more stable dollar value.
4. Deregulation, which saved consumers an estimated $100 billion per year in lower prices. Reaganís first executive order, in fact, eliminated price controls on oil and natural gas. Production soared, and aided by a strong dollar the price of oil declined by more than 50%.
These economic policies amounted to the most successful economic experiment in world history. The Reagan recovery started in official records in November 1982, and lasted 92 months without a recession until July 1990, when the tax increases of the 1990 budget deal killed it. This set a new record for the longest peacetime expansion ever, the previous high in peacetime being 58 months.
During this seven-year recovery, the economy grew by almost one-third, the equivalent of adding the entire economy of West Germany, the third-largest in the world at the time, to the U.S. economy. In 1984 alone real economic growth boomed by 6.8%, the highest in 50 years. Nearly 20 million new jobs were created during the recovery, increasing U.S. civilian employment by almost 20%. Unemployment fell to 5.3% by 1989.
The shocking rise in inflation during the Nixon and Carter years was reversed. Astoundingly, inflation from 1980 was reduced by more than half by 1982, to 6.2%. It was cut in half again for 1983, to 3.2%, never to be heard from again until recently. The contractionary, tight-money policies needed to kill this inflation inexorably created the steep recession of 1981 to 1982, which is why Reagan did not suffer politically catastrophic blame for that recession.
Real per-capita disposable income increased by 18% from 1982 to 1989, meaning the American standard of living increased by almost 20% in just seven years. The poverty rate declined every year from 1984 to 1989, dropping by one-sixth from its peak. The stock market more than tripled in value from 1980 to 1990, a larger increase than in any previous decade.
In The End of Prosperity, supply side guru Art Laffer and Wall Street Journal chief financial writer Steve Moore point out that this Reagan recovery grew into a 25-year boom, with just slight interruptions by shallow, short recessions in 1990 and 2001.

Corporations are people too my friends, that gives them the same rights as a citizen. The only problem is these illegal aliens are filthy rich. And with republicans falling over themselves to be their slaves. Corporate welfare given to just one big Corp that doesn't even need it is enough to feed every child in the US for a year.
What kind of republican leadership apologizes to the head of BP for being questioned about the worst oil spill in history? There is something very wrong with the republican party .

After more than a year of hard work, this week North Dakota finally became the 49th state to have felony penalties for animal cruelty!

On Monday, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple signed S.B. 2211 into law. And while this law falls short of what the voters were promised during the Measure 5 campaign, it's a step forward for North Dakota animals. It offers first offense felony penalties for malicious acts of cruelty toward all animals, and third offense felonies for repeat offenders of lesser acts of abuse.

Throughout the past year, animal lovers across the country have stood with North Dakotans to fight for a stronger animal cruelty law with Measure 5. And now 49 states have strong cruelty laws for our animals -- leaving only one, South Dakota, left without a felony penalty for malicious animal cruelty.

Reagan cut taxes for the Rich, increased taxes on the Middle Class
Ronald Reagan is loved by conservatives and was loved by big business throughout his presidency and there's a reason for it. When Reagan came into office in January of 1981, the top tax rate was 70%, but when he left office in 1989 the top tax rate was down to only 28%. As Reagan gave the breaks to all his rich friends, there was a lack of revenue coming into the federal government. In order to bring money back into the government, Reagan was forced to raise taxes eleven times throughout his time in office. One example was when he signed into law the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982. Reagan raised taxes seven of the eight years he was in office and the tax increases were felt hardest by the lower and middle class.
Tripling the National Debt -
As Reagan cut taxes for the wealthy, the government was left with less money to spend. When Reagan came into office the national debt was $900 billion, by the time he left the national debt had tripled to $2.8 trillion.
Iran/Contra
Reagan funded Terrorists
Unemployment issues
When Ronald Reagan came into office 1981, unemployment was at 7.5%. After Reagan cut taxes for the wealthy, he began raising taxes on the middle and lower class.
Reagan gave amnesty to 3 million Undocumented Immigrants
His attack on Unions and the Middle Class
On August 3rd, 1981, PATCO (Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization) went on strike in an effort to get better pay and safer working conditions. Two days later, taking the side of business, Ronald Reagan fired 11,345 workers for not returning to work.
oh Reagan, we can no longer blame bush, the conservatives are on to us, now its your turn, oh Reagan, hussein oblamer is such a worthless loser that we sheepletards have to try to prop him up by brining you into this, oh Reagan, baaaaaaaaaa, waaaaaaaaaaa, and aahhhhhhhh, we want so badly to find something good about our traitor in chief that we have to make stuff up, this barack-na-phobia that is gripping the entire country is your fault oh Reagan,

Nobama is the son of a citizen of a foreign country. A candidate for the office of President must have two parents that were American citizens. The definition of "natural born citizen" was codified in the Law of Nations in the mid 18th century. It required that both parents of a "natural born citizen" be citizens of the nation. In order "to avoid foreign allegiances," the parents of the President must be American citizens.

I'm really a nice guy. I've just grown so tired of the crazy rants from the willfully stoopid party(R). You replugs were laughable at first. But you're looking more and more like domestic terrorist. The party of NO is becoming an ongoing threat to the security of our country. Your constant attacks on our President and in your quest to bring him down is weaking our nations credibility around the world. Thus empowering our enemies. Cause and effect.

You call our top leader "weak" before the whole world in a time of two wars. You compare him to our enemies, You even accuse him of being a secret Muslim, even though he has many times confessed with his mouth he is a Christian(As the bible says to do). You spit on his given authority before nations that dance in the streets at every attack on our nation. Our enemies grin and laugh with glee as you constantly launch verbal attacks at your own countrymen. They see what you fail to see, the destruction of a great empire from within. It's frightening looking deep into the republican party, some very dark and evil beings hold high offices, and it's been that way almost since the birth of the party.
