    Imagine if Liberal Democrat Reporters put all the sneakiness into helping the middle class. Into actually rebuilding the country. Into being on the side of regular Americans. Yea, imagine that.

    That's what happens when you have more loyalty to your party than to your country.

    It's more like.. "That's what happens when you allow Marxists/Communists to infiltrate your party and then your government"

    McCarthy warned us to not worry about what he was saying about the communists, but to worry about what the Communists themselves were telling us they would do if they were to gain power."

    Yes. Every now and then I see a ripped bumper sticker with the words "United We Stand" which were everywhere right after the attacks of 911. But it's reached the point where hate rules the day. American v. American. That won't stand the test of time.

    Interesting responses to an interesting article. I wonder if those who posted partisan pablum read the link? Fact is, it is an international 'coffee house', meaning a place where interested, intelligent and involved people share ideas. Of course that threatens the callous conservatives, "IDEAS, holy shit, only commies have ideas!".
    The fact is (or so it seems) the conservative movement is bereft of ideas, not sense they decided tax cuts were the panacea for all ills has the conservative movement even offered an idea.

    You have a chance to rise above. Why don't you take it?

    You don't actually know any real live conservatives, do you?
