    I'm so baffled at all these liberals who are dropping at their knees at the feet of Obama. The last Democratic president we had a problem with ONE person dropping to their knees for Clinton, but now we have 100 million people doing it. So, that begs the question, why? Why are liberals who they are? Sifting through decades of liberal ideals, policies, and dreams, I don't think I can find ONE that actually works in the long run? A quick summary:

    Appeasment? Failed vs Hitler. Failed vs Iran. Failed vs North Korea.:evil:
    Welfare? The poor keep getting poorer, despite welfare. At least thats what liberals are saying. Welfare has caused MORE people to become or remain poor, not less.:(
    Social Security? Bankrupt. Failed.:(
    Medicare/Medicaid? Soon to be bankrupt. Failing.:(
    Obamacare? Soon to be failure, just wait and see.:eek:
    Higher taxes? Obviously, higher taxes hurt job and economic growth.:(
    Housing? Greenspan finally admits what we've known for 2 years. The liberal practice of threatening racism allegation on banks who wouldn't loan to poor people is the root of this recession as it caused the housing bust.:lol:
    Public education? Failed.:(
    Public housing? Failed. Have you ever seen a pleasant gov't housing project? Ever?:eusa_eh:
    Global Warming? Hoax.:lol:
    Anit-civil rights? Yes, thats right, read your history, the Republicans were responsible for passing civil rights in the 60's, Democrats strongly opposed it. So, the DEMOCRAT anti-civil rights stance failed.:razz:
    Pro-Slavery? Yes, again, it was the Republican Party that freed slaves, Democrats opposed, so they failed there again.


    So, let me ask again, what is ONE liberal Democratic policy that had positive results? Just one!!??:eusa_pray:

    Impossible.
    You are too brainwashed to accept any alternative politics.
    Join the military.

    I think I had this conversation with some one else before


    So let us start with the requirement of a god idea.

    Do you mean an idea that worked based on the reason it was supposed--or an idea that always worked.

    If it is the former, your list contained some good liberal ideas. If it is the latter, then there are no good ideas. Not even conservative ones.

    On the Samson Thread Suckiness Scale I give this a 10.

    I gave the thread "Watching Pain Dry" a 9.

    Appeasement? Did Iran and North Korea destroy us?

    Also, if Chamberlain never made the deal with Hitler, Hitler would of easily had destroyed Britain at the time since they were not ready for a war and the only one willing to go to war with them was France.

    I'm not even going to bother with the rest of your bullshit. Epic fail of a thread.

    If you still can't tell the two words apart, you should consider being silent and being merely thought a fool.

    The EPA has done some good. Oh, wait... That was proposed by President Richard Nixon.

    Still thinking...
