    The greatest gift the United States of America has given to the world community, after the enormous sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of young Americans who have given their lives in support is the ideal of American "Freedom". It's because of what the American people, together, have built that makes us respected among our friends and feared by our enemies.

    Our inclusive government embodies that "Spirit of Freedom". An organization MADE UP OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE that is there when there is disaster, or when we are threatened. An organization that helps the poor and disabled. Even the help our government gives is remarkable. It doesn't just pass out money, but through such requirements, such as the work requirement in welfare, those that are helped also develop and maintain important "self respect". The American government, put there by OUR PEOPLE, is the first place the rest of the world goes when there is need of help to fight back aggression.

    It was the Muslims who turned to the US when Iraq invaded Kuwait.

    The thing that saddens me is how the Republican Party have vilified this great American achievement and want to replace it with....."nothing". The beauty of our government is that it's "transitory". It's something we put into place made up of people we can "fire". How Republicans can undermine what this country has built through voter suppression is a "shock to the system". They can't even deny this odious plan since GOP leaders in at least two states have admitted they are targeting minorities and working to "fix" the election.

    Republicans insist our government is taking away our "freedoms" yet can't name a single lost freedom. In fact, through our social programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Welfare, Food Stamps, School Lunches, Daycare and others, we have been mostly freed from poverty in many ways. The tragic aspect to all this is the fact Republicans are rapidly growing older by the day. They rely on these programs to keep them out of poverty and help end their time here on this world with some measure of comfort and with dignity. Voting Republican, they vote against their own self interests. The Republican leadership has outright lied about the Welfare Work Requirement and Medicare saying the threat to these programs are the Democrats which all facts show, it's Democrats who want to preserve these programs. Republicans vow to replace them with......nothing.

    Republicans also run on the debt. Without the Bush Tax Cuts, the Drugs for Votes bill passed through reconciliation, TARP, the two unpaid for wars, Wall Street deregulation which caused the economic meltdown, moving millions of jobs to China from 2001 to 2008 and the other devastating Republican policies, there would be no stimulus, there would be no debt.

    We can't go back to Bush policies. Republicans have promised that we will. We have to fight to keep them from dismantling this country and what we have built as Americans.

    We have to keep hammering Republicans to tell us what their policies will be. Mitt Romney saying that if he explains his policies, people won't vote for him isn't enough. Besides Republicans, who can accept this answer?

    There have been no instances where American freedom has been threatened since WWII.

    So all those brave souls who have perished in service to their country since then are nothing more than casualties of political brinksmanship.

    Why do Republicans want to tear down our "Great Achievement"? And who do you mean by our? Idiot. You suggest Great achievement was accomplished without Republican involvement... By Liberals alone. My how you have played right into Obama's divisive hand... You are exactly the type of moron Democrats in power long for. One easily manipulated, who will not question the intent of his masters, and will do their bidding for them. The idea that great things can be achieved without involvement of 50% of America's citizens is repulsive, and somewhat disturbing... You are a disgrace to the very Foundations of what it means to be an American.

    Bush moved jobs over seas or was it union's refusal for compromise to compete in a Global economy? Bush tax cuts? nope. Bush was handed a recession in 2001 and the tax cuts created 6 years of growth. The housing market bubble which led to the economic decline was started in 1990s and encouraged by Dems to give loans to those who couldn't afford them. Legislation also made regulations weak for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

    Um...yeah, but Boney Frank said he didn't foresee any problems, was willing to roll the dice some more. Funny how easy that is when you're playing with other peoples' money, huh?

    Every dollar the government spends involves a loss of our freedom, you fucking moron. Every page of regulations is a reduction of freedom.

    True to form, turds like you don't even know what freedom is.
