Ahh the glorious Liberal empire of division through issues, and the use of Political correctness.. from hence forth I am no longer to be called a White Guy, or White period..
I will only accept the term EUROPEAN AMERICAN!! for we are all now divided into some issue or group..
Today I mourn the passing of the fundamental importance of this once great country...
R.I.P. Capitalism... ( you gave us sooo much)
for the next 4 years.. I dread the Liberals in the government..had we had a republican congress.. then obama wouldn't have been sooooo bad... There would be Balance...but we are now on the threshold of liberal imperialism.. Long Live socialism!!! Long live the U.S.S.A.!!!
(United Socialist States of America)
2 more years and he's gone!
your picture is fine good for freedom of speech but you prove just like most people in America that you really understand very little about the socio-economic structure of America. Once you and everyone that sees things only in black and white lines see that the world is truly gray in we can truly make the world a better place. So next time before we act out based on emotion pick up a book or get your computer and find out this information for yourself. But I digress once again thinks for your artwork but really?
If Reagan were running today, he would be considered too liberal to be elected as a Republican.
Obama is not a socialist though.
And I am a total supporter of liberty! The problem is, if the huge corperations are given too much freedom, they tend to abuse it and do anything they like to mkae more money, regardless of its effect on the envionment or economy. Greedy people will always be greedy.
...but for the love of the Gods, drop the Obama/socialist crap. He's not a socialist. He's not even remotely one.
Have a nice day.
your Bubba comment just shows the ignorance is not limited to the arrogant and blind statist class of citizen..
I disagree with your world view.. if corporations are so bad, then why can governments shut them down? is it so easily to shut down a rouge nation state? No, I think I would take the corporation over the political class..at least with a corporation you aren't subjugated by a military power..
People in socialist countries don't know what they are missing.. freedom is to succeed and fail by your own accord, in socialist countries, you think you are free, in reality you are left to a stagnate station in life, one that punishes your ambition with high taxation and rewards fools who do nothing but party and live off the government..
no my friend, you have been brainwashed..but then again, you did join the military..so it has been done once already.
I suppose you will just attack my character now, but who cares, just tell yourself, I am a stupid Bubba on my knees, and maybe you will sleep better at night.. I stand by the picture..
it is truth in form.
You write as if you're a free-thinking person (how's that for a character attack?), so how have you arrived at your assumptions about socialism?
I'm guessing you object to totalitarianism. Me, too. For you describe a vision of totalitarian socialism. Odd thing is, it sounds awfully similar to totalitarian capitalism. Then it becomes a matter of which master you'd rather serve. Most Americans are, very much indeed, stuck at one station in life; ambition is discouraged at every level and chains of debt are forged for life via the "taxation" of your feudal-corporate masters -- most of whom don't pay taxes, and who probably party on their yachts and celebrate their offshore accounts.
"Big government" let my dad join the Air Force, get a college education and get his family out of the Dust-Bowl of southwest Kansas. He busted butt, worked hard, and played by the rules... a damn-good American bubba who lived long enough to his retirement sucked dry by the private market, and long enough to be screwed by a private medical system that couldn't diagnose him with Lou Gehrig's disease until six months before he died.
So my "bubba" comment hit a sore spot. Tough. I'm a bubba too, from the bowels of Tennessee. But I know totalitarianism -- in any flavor -- when I smell it. And ain't nobody gonna distract me with abortion, homosexuals, and bone-headed "patriotism" or "Support Our Troops" decals made in China.
I don't know you and I didn't call anyone "stupid." But I will now. Anyone who thinks Obama is remotely socialist is, indeed, stupid -- as in dumber-than-hair stupid. He's a state-capitalist employed by the regime to fool stupid (note that word, again) liberals into believing they actually have a part to play in a fake democracy.
Conservatives love John Stuart Mill. So... here's some Mill: "While it's true that not all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative."
If the foo shits... smoke it, dude.
I am sorry for our father.. it seems that if he were in another country say Canada, or England he would have still been waiting inline to get health care, and would have died without knowing what is was that killed him..If you read allot online and research the ideas and problems put forth in political debates, then you realize free health care is not free, money comes from somewhere to pay those "free" programs government sets up..and those "free" programs come out of everyone's pockets, and most of all those corporations who "never" pay taxes..
which is simply not true, most of them pay high taxes..
they just suck at the tit of which Politician who will guarantee a .5% reduction in what they pay.. in reality had we true capitalism, the economy and personal wealth of all of US citizens would be much more then what we see today.
the Progressive (I say regressive) income tax is set up to specifically berate and control the American populace..
where we able to get the political class to relinquish their hold on the taxation powers, and got a flat and fair tax system on consumption, then we would truly be free people.
competition would keep the costs low, and the market would be brimming with free enterprises..imagine working a job and keeping all of your paycheck money. then you could buy what ever health care plan you wanted across state lines, with health care incentives and accounts to grow your money tied to sound and solid government bonds and or the choice of free stock options that are proven beneficial...you gain interest in the health care account as you pay in, and so on..
imagine making your full paycheck and spending the money to do what you want.. I am smarter then the government, and I would take that Fica, and income tax and put it to other use..I could invest it somewhere, and make a good return enough to build my own nest egg, or become a company owner, the taxes I Pay on what I buy would then be able to go to the small social programs for those who can not physically do anything themselves.. the estimated wealth that would return from over seas and which would come to the USA is about 14 trillion dollars, and it would set up the world's only tax shelter, which could benefit us greatly..
If you don't think Obama is a socialist, I can not convince you.. and I am not going to try to. I don't know you and you don't know me, and I certainly don't have any animosity towards you..I used to be a liberal, peace and wealth across the world..but I see the corruption, and how throughout history the population of the world has suffered under nany states and state run centralized government.. where the politicians get richer and the businesses get poorer until all the money is gone and dried up.. and life has become unbearable.. I have friends who lived in Russia, it is a great example of it, and Germany has had it's problems too, even in the E.U. look at spain, and Greece, their entitlement mentality has driven their economic situation to bankruptcy..
true core capitalism hasn't been tried here in the US, but a watered down socialistic policy enacted 90 years ago has ruined it's chance to succeed.. FDR was a socialist, and had a admitted communist working with him in the White house..
The major rally today in Washington is the liberal party and interest groups who supported Obama.. SEIU, CARE, and others are there to rally..INCLUDING the US Communist Party..
so Say what you will, and believe what you want, but if there is a communist party who allies with Obama's main supporters, then what is the common denominator? what would make a communist join forces with other interest groups to support the president?? well communism, is just a different form of socialism.. so not just on that basis, but a good example of why I believe Obama is a socialist.. not to mention the cover of newsweek magazine that stated quite clearly "we are all socialists now" and explained why and how Obama's policies would lead to that, and how it was supposedly good for America..
you see, I am not an idiot, and I do pay attention and read, and like many of US in the TEA party, we are well informed..
By the way, I gave up smoking last year..Foo shits included.
I agree that nothing too great can come from a one-sided government. I'm sixteen, but I see Obama isn't the best president, which is pointed by many folks around. Our President Barack Obama is our president, we might regret it now, or even in the future, but Obama was the better candidate in the election. As far as John Mccain is concerned he was a soldier not a leader, the way I see it, you can be a good leader and you can be a good soldier, not both.
Also the situation is completely messed up, and it was pre-determined. the 90s was supposedly one of the best decades(economically), and if I learned anything from hours of mass effect 1 & 2 gameplay when you reach prominance you are doomed to fall, which happened in the new millennium, and it also happened in the 1920s also known as the Roaring Twenties, and the downturn was the 30s, or rather the era of the GREAT DEPRESSION.
I'm a sixteen year old kid who slept through most of American History class. I'm also a black kid who was happy to get a HALF black president. I know nothing of politics, I know my world is supposed to be run by money. I also lost my point in this if you find it let me know where it is.
Water, Fire, and Sewer you pay them directly.. it is a service
Water is not required by law..
Fire, that is necessary.. and is part of the State's responsibility.. and their localities.. not the Federal Government..
Power services are provided by companies not the local or Federal government..
Sports arenas should not be paid for by tax payers..
Universities should not be Government funded..
the US tax code (progressive tax) serves to redestribute wealth.. the Fair Tax should be what we go to, which keeps the power out of the politicians hands and keeps in in ours.. Jefferson and Adams both supported a fair tax of some sort.
if you want to know more about it..
Worker's comp is porvided by the company and the insurance co. that corporation uses.. not federally provided..
unemployment is from the Government.. and is okay because it is a hand up, not a hand out, and I do believe as a conservative, that a safety net is nice..but not government control..
Socialism does not work..
look at the UK, Europe, and any other nation that is stagnate from their Socialism.. eventually you (the Government) run out of other people's money..
get your facts straight.. then come back and debate.. I think the pic and the name of the pic speak for itself..
if you disagree fine.. your a socialist
I'm a capitalist and conservative..
(not to be confused with Racist, which is actually what the Democratic party is mostly filled with..) Black racists, White racists.. race is always on their mind..
they voted against desegregation..
they voted against many issues facing minorities.. and yet they lie and try to belittle that fact..
look back into the congressional voting habits of the Democrats and you will see.. the reason Republicans seem like they don't reach out "specifically" to other races, is because they don't see people that way..
you are a victim because of those people over there.. vote for me.. I'll make them pay..(but all they do is make you pay higher taxes..)
racist has been slammed around so many times by the democrats, Black power leaders (black supremacists) and liberal jerkoff white people who hate their own kind..
I got no white guilt..
I have black friends..
I dislike Obama's policies..
so that makes me a racist??
sorry I didn't get the joke right off the bat..
Gotta love conservative priorities.
Liberalism promotes Government control over every aspect of a person's life.. health care "Control" is another way to enslave people..
there are some who would rather live as a slave and be taken care of, and then there are those who would rather die then to not be free..
EQUALITY is another means to enact socialism and control by the state over people..
those in power end up with all the people's money and dole it out to those who do not deserve it..
that reminds me of the sheriff of nottingham from Robin Hood.. only in this case Obama pretends to steal from the rich to give to the poor, in reality he is the sheriff, and is stealing from everyone (including the rich) and giving hand outs to the poor to keep himself and his friends in "control"
Gotta love those Liberal and Socialistic/Marxist priorities..
