    Post them facts.

    It's well known -for those to whom facts matter- that the Eugene Debs wing of the Democrat Party stole the term "liberal" back in the 1920s, in order to obfuscate their true aims.

    Please....Indulge us with some stuff!

    Poems? Strange...But I disagree with anarchic....but back then we didn't need the government to protect customers and workers so much from corporations, or the workers and customers weren't so educated and informed....

    "It's well known -for those to whom facts matter- that the Eugene Debs wing of the Democrat Party stole the term "liberal" back in the 1920s, in order to obfuscate their true aims."

    You're quite misinformed. Was it Glenn Beck? Debs was Socialist Party all the way...

    Eugene V. Debs Foundation
    Eugene V. Debs, five time Socialist Candidate for Presidency,the only candidate
    to run for U.S. President from prison, advocate of industrial unionism, ...

    We need more classic liberal discipline in schools and colleges and culture- especially history, science, and ethics...

    It would not surprise me if this did get "moved", despite it being a prudent political topic.
    Yet, your statement is poignant.

    The word "liberal", just as the word "anarchy", is being usurped by the pinko, the statist, the elitist.
    They usurp words that they fear the most, in order to twist, flip, and thus redefine as to be as hateful as they are.
    Yes, they hope that if there is no word to define what it is that they hate, what they hate will cease to exist.
    Their only joy is to spread hate.

    Any so-called "conservative" who uses the term "liberal" as a pejorative, when they should be using terms that are more fitting...
    such as commie, totalitarian, statist, elitist, monarchist, or nazi...
    Well, they are simply playing fool to msnbc's & faux new's anti-freedom semantic games.

    yes, and Obama and the Dems are not in any way commie, totalitarian, monarchist, or nazi. Perhaps Statist in that people need protection from corporations, or elitist in simply being highly educated.

    The conservatives are just as bad. Don't be partisan. Back away, and look at the bigger picture. This is all a game, a sham, to get us so involved with each other, that we are distracted from the actions of the very small group of powerful people at the top: bankers, CEO's, presidents, vice presidents all starting wars, reaping profits, gaining evermore power... while you and I and all of us sit here on a message baord, and point and blame each other for the problem... That is the whole game, and with every word slung at the other side, they are winning.
