Let’s start the day by making liberal and ‘progressive’ heads go boom

Ladies and gentlemen, George W. Bush speaking with Peter Robinson.

''I believe we are a blessed nation; that is, therefore, we have a sense of responsibility to the extent we can to help others. In this case there was a pandemic destroying an entire generation of people. And I didn’t see how I could be president of a powerful, the most powerful, and the richest nation and not lend our support to saving lives. It would have been unconscionable not to act. So I thought it was in our moral interest to act. I also knew it was an international security act.''

    In the meantime Newsroom has Jeff Daniels spouting nonsense about how horrible this country is and liberals and other idiots lap it up.

    In the meantime Debbie Wasserman Schultz appears in a Philadelphia synagogue and the left panel, when it isn't assuring us about how much Obama "cares" about us and is a supporter of Israel, tells the adoring audience that it is so dangerous to allow the Tea partiers and other Republicans ever to get power again because they will establish a dictatorial theocracy and we will lose our liberty, and they will get us into frivolous wars, which the dems will keep us out of. And they get a standing ovation for this baloney.

    And in the meantime there exists a video of how peaceful, quiet people of the other point of view stand in the parking lot of the synagogue and are assaulted by one of those "caring", "tolerant" dems who tells one of the quiet protesters to "go f yourself" and bullies a small woman.

    Bush's idea that democratic votes are good is not exactly correct. Liberty is important, but there has to be a structure of free people strong enough to withstand the organized evil groups like The Muslim Brotherhood or democratic voting is not going to be the be all to get liberty.

    Democracy, even in a place very used to it, has a serious flaw: if enough voters are stupid, blind or perverse, the system fails, and everybody gets screwed. Everybody is NOT fit to vote, just as everyone is NOT fit to sit on a jury, and everyone does NOT deserve to vote at the national level if they don't even pay income tax.

  • asombra

    In other words, if you don't pay income tax, you do NOT have a right to affect what determines the taxes of those who do. Real simple.

    Honey, that sounds beyond appalling, especially because it involves people who (presumably) should know far better. There is no rational explanation for such behavior. Maybe it's true that liberalism is a mental illness.

    For them the only issue is choice and the Supreme court. And the libs play on their fears by accusing our side of being a one size fits all bunch of Theocrats. As if Romney, the ultimate moderate, is a viper of conservativism.
