    Do you hear how shrill and defensive and downright ugly they get when we criticize their Lord and Savior Obama?

    They claim that Jihadists killed our Ambassador and 3 others because they were enraged over a video criticizing their Lord and Savior, can they relate to that emotion over criticism, even if over a video?

    Yes. Many of them share a core belief that the purpose of government is to bully your neighbors.

    Sadly, many obama followers in this country would sell out of Freedoms of speech to protect him..

    we've reached critical and dangerous time in this country with him as President

    Progressives simply sound like a buzz in the background anymore because it's the same old bullshit over and over and over again.
    To progressives nything wrong is either the fault of big business or an evil Conservative somewhere. People standing around with their dick in their hand expecting someone else to pay their freight has nothing to do with where America is.

    Do 'Conservatives' sound like poor whiney little bitchs totally detached from reality to you? How was that Romney Landslide?

    And how about how terrible the economy is going to react to the election?

    Of course, there is the fiscal cliff. Yessiree, let's just force that to happen and the American People will blame our President, right?

    I thought you lefty Obamabots wanted to raise taxes? Now rasing taxes is a problem?

    Oh, wait! I get it. You want to raise SOMEONE ELSES taxes, not yours. I see. It's that whole equality thing your ilk are always talking about.

    Is it just me, or do Obamabots revert directly to talks of Romney when they are called out for being hive minded drones?

    Classical Liberaism was always interested in open free debate, and the exchange of ideas. It was the child of the western consitutional monarchies/republics and the freedom of expression that resulted from the restraint of power imposed on the state, as well as the more conservative instutions of the time (the churches).

    Today's progressivism is not interested in open debate of ideas. To them thier concept of the state and a person's place in it is the only "right" idea. Therefore, since thier concept is the best one, it has to be the only one, and those that disagree are either too stupid to figure out, or have to have some malevolent reason to resist the progressives world view.

    Hence the resorting to ad hominem attacks, cries of "racist! sexist! classist!" and the outright rejection of even the possibility that someone that disagrees with them could be right based on fact and merit.
