No doubt you would think facts are stupid. Reality bites.

The gullibles never knew what hit them when the media began brainwashing the masses. The military used it to boost morale especially during WWII. As the communists began infiltrating the media, it began to change. The commies knew it would take time so they began expanding the government and indoctrinating the public.

When women stayed home, liberals had a wonderful way to capture this audience. They had to appeal to the 'Leave it to Beaver' group that would reinforce the concept of staying at home and supporting a loving husband and provider. This was the ideal every family strived for but the libs needed to exploit this for it's own benefit.

The middle and working classes would serve the liberal party well because women spent the most amount of time in front of their TV's. One way to keep this group pacified and willing to stick around to watch the advertisers, the 'soap opera' was born. The social engineering began and the stigma of divorce, premarital sex, out of wedlock pregnancy, extra marital affairs, etc. could be tempered.The liberal elite couldn't be worshipped if their flock wasn't on board with their shenanigans. Naturally, the issues mentioned above spurred the need for women to work. The soap opera has evolved to reality TV so the working gullible can continue to be 'entertained' after work.

The libs found their market and have been cultivating it since the beginning.

I notice how you had to switch hit in order to try to appear like you have some kind of point.

You mentioned how the Republicans were standing in the way when it was that commie Harry Reid who refused to sign oscumma's plan. Now, you want to talk about the voting base?

When you have nearly half the country not paying taxes, do you honestly think they are going to want to vote for someone who will not make it easy to be a parasite? The lazy and stupid have outnumbered the hardworking and intelligent. That's something I wouldn't want to be proud of, but oh well.

Nah Obama has been doing this for years.
Here is what Ann Coulter found.
http://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/201...
"Let's take a romp down memory lane and review the typical Obama campaign strategy. Obama became a U.S. senator only by virtue of David Axelrod's former employer, the Chicago Tribune, ripping open the sealed divorce records of Obama's two principal opponents.
One month before the 2004 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, Obama was down in the polls, about to lose to Blair Hull, a multimillionaire securities trader. But then the Chicago Tribune leaked the claim that Hull's second ex-wife, Brenda Sexton, had sought an order of protection against him during their 1998 divorce proceedings.
Those records were under seal, but as The New York Times noted: "The Tribune reporter who wrote the original piece later acknowledged in print that the Obama camp had 'worked aggressively behind the scenes' to push the story." Many people said Axelrod had "an even more significant role -- that he leaked the initial story."
...
After having held a substantial lead just a month before the primary, Hull's campaign collapsed with the chatter about his divorce. Obama sailed to the front of the pack and won the primary. Hull finished third with 10 percent of the vote.
As luck would have it, Obama's opponent in the general election had also been divorced! Jack Ryan was tall, handsome, Catholic -- and shared a name with one of Harrison Ford's most popular onscreen characters! He went to Dartmouth, Harvard Law and Harvard Business School, made hundreds of millions of dollars as a partner at Goldman Sachs, and then, in his early 40s, left investment banking to teach at an inner city school on the South Side of Chicago.
Ryan would have walloped Obama in the Senate race. But at the request of -- again -- the Chicago Tribune, California Judge Robert Schnider unsealed the custody papers in Ryan's divorce five years earlier from Hollywood starlet Jeri Lynn Ryan, the bombshell Borg on "Star Trek: Voyager."
Jack Ryan had released his tax records. He had released his divorce records. But both he and his ex-wife sought to keep the custody records under seal to protect their son.
Amid the 400 pages of filings from the custody case, Jack Ryan claimed that his wife had had an affair, and she counterclaimed with the allegation that he had taken her to "sex clubs" in Paris, New York and New Orleans, which drove her to fall in love with another man.
...
Ryan had vehemently denied her allegations at the time, but it didn't matter. The sex club allegations aired on "Entertainment Tonight," "NBC Nightly News," ABC's "Good Morning America," "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," and NBC's "Today" show. CNN covered the story like it was the first moon landing.
(Interestingly, international papers also were ablaze with the story -- the same newspapers that were supposed to be so bored with American sexual mores during Bill Clinton's sex scandal.)
Four days after Judge Schnider unsealed the custody records, Ryan dropped out of the race for the horror of (allegedly) propositioning his own wife and then taking "no" for an answer.
Alan Keyes stepped in as a last-minute Republican candidate.
And that's how Obama became a U.S. senator. He destroyed both his Democratic primary opponent and his Republican general election opponent with salacious allegations about their personal lives taken from "sealed" court records.
Obama's team delved into Sarah Palin's marriage and spread rumors of John McCain's alleged affair in 2008 and they smeared Herman Cain in 2011 with hazy sexual harassment allegations all emanating from David Axelrod's pals in Chicago."
Vicious attacks are his main stay. Obama crushes his opposition with derisive lies.

Notice how liberals are the first to tell you to give over all your money to the government so they can redistribute it to the poor, but they are never willing to give give any of their money. I think if you are a true liberal and believe in your philosophy, then you should give until it hurts or until you are at the level of the poor you want to redistribute the money to like a monk. If Obama was a true leader, he would get up and say that he and the Democratic congressional leaders are going to pay their taxes to the levels that they are demanding of the rich. He will show his leadership by avoiding all tax loopholes that would allow him to pay any less than anybody else. In other words, since he is rich (as defined by him) he should pay his full 39% that he demands of others. As if that will ever happen.
No dumbass, I notice that the tax rates in America are the lowest they have ever been. I notice that the most wealthy in America are paying lower rates than the average worker. I notice that there are bills to pay such as Medicare and Military that have NOTHING to do with the poor.

80 percent of the federal budget goes to Social Security, Medicare and to military spending AND with 80 million baby boomers going onto SS and Medicare now, in 5 more years, JUST SS and Medicare will use up 97 percent of the federal budget. So just about ALL federal spending will be on socialism for the tea party, for socialist security and government Medicare for the tea party making them the biggest socialists that ever lived. And that is why the first thing the Republicans asked for is means testing SS and Medicare, meaning all of you rich folks on many government pensions, on your big socialism, you will have to pay a lot more for your Medicare AND get a lot less from Social Security. The government can't give you money and health care for 30 or 40 years. That amount of socialism is so expensive, that the ONLY thing both parties want to cut is the tea party's socialism - the big fat old aged programs.

I told the tea party nuts the whole time that they were going to end up having to pay more for their socialism, for their government health care. I told them they are going to end up paying about $6,000 a year more for their government Medicare. Ha, ha, now all I see on the news channels is exactly what I said for years - the Republicans are forcing the Dems to means test those programs, and that is after Obama cut $750 billion out of Medicare. John Bohner's proposal cuts another $300 billion out of Medicare and it calls for means testing SS and Medicare.

Like I said in here the whole entire time, most of the money goes for the tea party's social programs, and like I said for 5 years in here, those programs are what will be cut. Now, here it is. Of course.

And look at the Dems. Their SS and Medicare is bankrupt, their big giant government pensions are bankrupt, their welfare has destroyed the country and make it go third world. All of their programs are bankrupt.

The middle class and above pay nearly 80% of the taxes. Tax rates is meaningless. Many hardworking famiies are paying $20,000 in property taxes and $60,000 in Federal taxes alone. And yet the parasites want to suck more out of the hardworking so they can sit on their bulbous butts and whine all day.

You've left out the fact that dems have obstructed their own party, nitwit. I hope the Republicans stand firm and let this coward own it. We can't spend any more and the Republicans should stand firm.
