The Constitution 101:

In the Federalist Papers it said: We were not going to have a monarchy, and we were not going to have a democracy.$$$$$$$

And to this day we have neither. For two hundred years we have had an oligarchical system in which men of property can do well (Dumbya Bush), and others are on their own.$$$$$$$

American politics is essentially a family affair, as are most oligarchies. When the father of the Constitution, James Madison, was asked how on earth any business could get done in Congress when the country contained 100 million people whose representatives would number half a thousand, Madison took the line that oligarchy's iron law always obtains: A few people invariably run the show; and keep it, if they can, in the family.$$$$$$$

Our founding fathers had such a fear and loathing of democracy that they invented the Electoral College so that the popular voice of the people could be throttled, much as the Supreme Court throttled the Floridians on December 12, 2000.$$$$$$$

We were to be neither a democracy, subject to majoritarian tyranny, nor a dictatorship, subject to Caesarean folly.$$$$$$$

As American media is controlled by that corporate America which provides us with political candidates a well-informed electorate is not possible.$$$$$$$

Funny how an ass kicking (like the one we gave you idiots on Election Night) makes the intolerant, ignorant and close-minded right-wing tea-baggers beg for what they refuse to display over the last 4 years as they relentlessly attacked this President, his supporters, Blacks, Latinos and women…

NO TOLERENCE FOR THE TEA-BAGGERS… not for the next 4 years, sorry, LOL!

Why this incredibly long biography of Rice? It's disgusting how the media works for the administration. What an incestuous scenario. Rice has been in the government circles since birth and now look at her rise - except when the men try to hold her back of course - so the article explains.

The media and government - in bed together along with an aristocracy that holds people like Rice on their shoulders and provides power to.

If "liberals" won this election then why does the Democratic agenda seem to be taken straight from the CPUSA's website? Why does the CPUSA's website read like a blueprint for Obama's campaign?

Liberalism does not support central authoritarianism and since when do American liberals attack wealth for its' own sake? The only thing the Obama campaign did was talk about "raising taxes on the wealthy" and ATTACKING the opposition in an outrageous bombardment. That's it - that's all. Hmm, attack the rich and destroy the opposition......sounds familiar but just not American.

The liberals have been made irrelevant by the leftists who have taken over the Democratic party and now the leftist's tools support "fundamentally" transforming America - something liberals NEVER USED TO WANT. They built upon the ideals of freedom and the Bill of Rights. Anyone who actively supports the Democratic party is NOT liberal but extremely ILLIBERAL.

Fool? Here I thought President Obama was actually Commander in Chief of the military. Maybe that was just all the other presidents, but a smart guy like you would know that.

Let's see - "Fox" "teabagger" and "oral sex". Yep, that about covers it.

It seems that even after the election the attack dogs are left to roam around freely - barking and growling at all perceived threats - instead of being put back into their kennels.

Only thing missing is 'dread locks'. Her speech patterns are from the getto, except when she wants to impress the white population. Totally transparent in the Obama mold.

"It's disgusting how the media works for the administration. What an incestuous scenario".

Teabaggers listen and watch "opinion" broadcast and mistake that for "news" and "facts".

They invite every hair brained nutjob to their studio and give them a forum for their delusions and teabaggers call it "news".

Poor teabagger.

Poor teabagger.
Liberals look for every excuse and scape goat that they can concoct to excuse the current administration of any responsibility for any and all events counter to their talking points. Liberals even when presented facts from multiple news organizations will inevitably blame these organizations of bias and false reporting regardless of the facts.

They have elected a cadre of nut jobs and incompetents to government office in an effort to implement an ideology which has failed in every other corner of the world.
