    After studying hundreds of years of history, conservatives have the solutions down to a science - while progressives continue to toil in catastrophic failure as they ignore reality in favor of ideology.

    As Ronald Reagan stated - "weakness invites aggression". When Bill Clinton refused to deal with Al Qaeda and pulled out of Somalia at the first sign of a fight (like a coward), he convinced the world that America was cowardly. That emboldened the world. That coupled with failing to deal with Al Qaeda gave them the time and motivation to plan and execute 9/11. The mastermind of the attack - Khalid Sheik Mohammed - admitted that they were stunned by the response by the Bush Administration and that the Bush strategy prevented more attacks.

    “Then he looked at me and said, ‘How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us ‘dead or alive’ and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down?’” Mitchell writes.

    “KSM explained that if the United States had treated 9/11 like a law enforcement matter, he would have had time to launch a second wave of attacks.” He was not able to do so because al-Qaeda was stunned “by the ferocity and swiftness of George W. Bush’s response.”

    Had Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush been in office instead of Bill Clinton, 9/11 never happens. Weakness invites aggression. And the progressive idealistic weakness has invited unspeakable horrors against the U.S. It was done once again by Barack Obama - by making heavy cuts to our U.S. military (sending a signal to enemies) and by sending billions in ransom money to Iran.

    A horrifying look into the mind of 9/11’s mastermind, in his own words

    Look at the Russian aggression in Europe, the Chinese aggression in the pacific, and a new militant wing of jihad that makes Al-Qaeda and the Talibs look like Mormon missionaries, and you can see how they only exist because of the meat puppet faggot and his deliberate weakening of our military.

    At this point there's nothing left for Trump to fuck up. No matter what he does, even if a war develops, it will end up better than what obozo has done.

    A prime example here of how progressive policy continues to fail society. After Martin Shkreli purchased the rights to the anti-parasitic drug Daraprim and raised the price from $13.50 per tablet to $750 per tablet, a high school student went out and created the medication for $2 per tablet. The free market flawlessly solving problems as it always does.

    But....idiotic progressive top-down, centralized-controlled, centralized-planning communism. Business Insider explains:

    But while the drug is still incredibly expensive in the U.S., in most countries, including Australia, it’s available for around $1 or $2 per tablet.

    That’s because the drug is out of patent, but Turing Pharmaceuticals controls its distribution in the States through a loophole called the ‘closed distribution model‘.

    That means for a competitor – such as the students’ new drug – to be able to be sold on the U.S. open market, it would have to be compared in trials to Shkreli’s product.

    High school students make Martin Shkreli’s $750 drug Daraprim for $2

    Remember when Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the Dumbocrats egregiously lied to the American people and said that the Affordable Healthcare Act would drastically reduce healthcare costs for the American people? The left continues to destroy America in their quest for power and control.

    The world is as peaceful as it has ever been.

    As for the Mid East . We no longer have a parade of dead US soildiers coming back every week. And GASP ! Mid East soldiers are now fighting isis . Who'd a thunk it!

    But you want us to go back to the meathead conservative thinking of never ending war in the Mid East . How's that been working ?

    Yeah. You'd be amazed at how costs decrease, efficiencies increase, and products/services improve when government stays the frick out of it and allows the free market do what it was designed to do.

    By the way - stop making excuses. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the Dumbocrats all knew that the boomers were getting older and still they insisted that the failed Affordable Healthcare Act would cause prices to decrease. Instead, they've skyrocketed to record levels. You're a partisan hack without an honest bone in your body. You sound ridiculous trying to defend this stuff.

    Is there some reason you essentially repeat the same rant over and over again? Loon.

    "Liberal" policy hasn't failed. Prior to social security more than half of the elderly lived below the poverty line.

    Prior to OSHA, workplaces were unsafe.

    Prior to Richard Nixon's EPA, your corporate scum could dump their toxins into our air and water with impunity.

    Prior to wage and hour laws working people were forced into sweatshops for what were abusive and explorative wages.

    Now shut up and post after you've learned something.

    Thanks.
