    Having a low IQ makes the liberal think of government in Santa Claus like terms. They imagine they can tell the government what they want, and it then can provide it. How can you fight such perfect ignorance?

    Teaching them that they can get more of what they want from Republican free enterprise would require of them, intellect, which they just don't have. This is why our Founders wanted only intelligent people to vote in a Republic. But even the safeguard has been removed in our modern democracy.

    Our forefathers knew that only White, land-owning men are intelligent enough to run things. And clearly these people have the pure moral fortitude to look out for everyone else too, instead of taking advantage of their hold on power to further enrich themselves. Our forefathers sure were awesome.

    We should go back to the good old days, back before liberals ruined liberty by getting rid of slavery.

    To stupid!!! Our forefathers created liberty and recently freed 2 billion from communism and were willing to die for it. The first draft of the Declaration was more about slavery than taxes.

    A political reality for Democrats and liberals is that they want to continue many services and programs that cater to their traditional voting base but are unwilling to reconcile this against a soaring debt, and now, a recent negative credit rating.

    Love those numbers. You would think that Republicans would feel embarrassed that they are like the "Anti Midas". Everything they touch fails. Bummer. Thank Gawd for delusions. Otherwise, they would be really depressed.

    We've lost, or are losing the will to be responsible for ourselves, and too many of us are expecting the gov't to step in and take care of our every need. Recent polls reflect this, most people don't want to change Social Security or Medicare or Medicaid, but if those things are not changed they will go bust, simple as that. Sure, tax the rich and get an extra 70 billion a year (if that), but how's that going to make a dent in a 1.6 trillion dollar deficit?

    Yes and no. From the numbers, Republicans have lost the will to be responsible. They can't support themselves without help from the Blue States. For Democrats, not so much. If Blue States weren't being bled dry by the Red States, they would have balanced budgets. The economy would be lot different.

    of course if you presented your best example of this your comment might be worth more than a laugh. Having a reason or example does not even occur to a liberal does it??

    Conservatives are the ones that believe in mythical things and fairy tales.

    Liberals are pragmatic..and deal with real world math.
