Again, you "guess" wrong.
Actually, that was just subtle calumny.

Not particularly, but the practices certainly are ubiquitous on these boards.

On this thread, you are merely the most recent perpetrator of it.

The Democratic Party is very much like the Communist Party as they favor allowing people to vote, as long as it's someone from their party and no other. That's what Democratic Governor Perdue suggested.
More platitudes with no substance. You complain about Democrats at every turn, You demonize Obama, yet offer nothing concrete to back your opinions. What has Obama done that is so against the American Philosophy? Can you offer anything specific?

On the contrary, straight from the conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation. The Affordable Care Act uses the private insurance companies in a way that promotes capitalism, but still allows all people to get coverage. It expands the insurance base through the individual mandate, a conservative idea from the 90's, which helps cover the cost of those people with preexisting conditions. It also insures that all people have health coverage so the rest of society doesn't have to pay for the emergency treatment of the uninsured. Sorry, that doesn't qualify as Marxist. Even if it did, it would preclude you voting for Romney as it is also nearly a mirror of the plan he enacted in Massachusetts. Next.

I'm not a Romney supporter and never have been. He's a Mormon.

I'm a Libertarian, for more than 25 years, and will vote for the Libertarian Party candidate for POTUS.

Then why do you not complain about Republicans the way you do about Democrats? When it comes to infringing on liberties, the Republicans are worse than the Democrats. Trying to impose their religious beliefs on others, spending rampantly on the military, increasing taxes on Americans while claiming to be tax cutters, expanding the taxpayer financial support to corporations. Yet you demonize the Democrats to no end. You recite Republican talking points like any avid fan of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Make no mistake, they are not Libertarians, they are Republicans and they fill their fans with Republican ideals.

I would vote for The Devil himself to get The Obamaniac out of office. He is CLEARLY and EVIL man and the WORST POTUS in American history (even WORSE than Jimmy Carter !)

You have been Republicanized. I don't care if you vote independent, you are a Republican, you recite their talking points, you fall for their lies, you are Republican. Take a serious look at what Obama walked into upon entering office. 700000 jobs lost per month, the banking system and auto industries falling apart, 2 wars, and the lowest government revenues in modern history as a percentage of GDP. Spending is similar to that under Bush, but revenues which, until the Bush tax cuts, were at 8.4% of GDP fell to below 6%. Millions of job losses in the first year, not exactly Obama's fault. Now consider that we have recovered all the jobs lost since then, the auto industry is running profits, the banking industry is at record profits. Wall street was below 7000, now near 13000. So what has made him such a bad President?

BTW, that doesn't include all the progress made in the arena of equality.

How could I refute such a strong argument. I have no choice but to defer to your superior position on this subject. Regardless, no hard feelings. I will simply take comfort in the fact that you will not be voting for Romney in November.

I've always said I would not do so.
