How much trouble are we really in?

Stepping back, the election was decisively carried by the forces that are sustained at the grass roots level by ideology that includes any number of outright falsehoods, half truths and mystical mythologies. (I know, and your mother wears army boots, too.)

 

Let's say that Lyin' for Jesus (or The American Way or whatever) is appropriate as a weapon in the death struggle against modernity and liberalism. And let's say you win. Then what? 

 

It's almost always a really, really bad idea to believe your own BS. Almost has to turn out worse than what you were manipulated into fearing in the first place.

(I know, and your mother wears army boots, too.)THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I HAVE HEARD THE REALITY OF THE RESULT EVEN IF IT IS A CUT AND PASTE. I SAID BEFORE THAT NOTHING WILL CHANGE FOR YOU PEOPLE WHO WANTED CHANGE. YOU HATE DEMOCRATS LIKE THEY ARE DESTROYING YOUR LIVES. YOU SPEAK OF THEM AS IF THEY ARE SUB HUMAN, LIKE YOUR SLAVES.

BUT YOUR MISCHIEF MAKING HEADING IS TYPICAL OF GOP NOW THEY HAVE CONTROL OF BOTH HOUSES. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT CHAOS AWAITS YOUR COUNTRY NOW YOU HAVE INSTITUTIONALISED TOTALITARIANISM.
BUT YOU CAN'T BE EXPECTED TO THINK RATIONALLY BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN THE STRONG POINT OF THE NUTS ON THIS SITE.

...what happened to churches/Jesus being on the decline?   What happened to white males that like to shoot guns and watch lesbian porn, are dying out?

 

This country is being overwhelmed with browness, poverty and laziness...all you guys gotta do in 2016 is run Liz Warren and a Mexican and she`ll win in a electoral landslide and drag in Dems on their coatails.    Us old white guys may have won "this round" but you`ll get us next time.

 

 

.......Unless, you are afraid that Republican values will be such a breath of fresh air that we will win over even the poor brownies in the over the next 2 years?     I wouldn`t be worried if I was you though, free goodies are hard for Dems to pass up.

The only real problem I see with republican values is the fact that republicans/teapartiers want No other values allowed and that for theirs is the only option. You want to do the very thing, well almost the very thing you accuse us liberals of wanting which is not true. We only want for all people to live the way they wish as long as it is not criminal. Being gay, not of Christian persuation, black, brown, red or anyother combination you think is, IS NOT!! Get over it. You ain't gonna get it!

Re: Maybe America is in better shape than we thought

Smiley Very Happy   Nox has tried to sell this idea that the Tea Party "want`s to see Blacks swinging from lamp posts"...I actually think that he`s serious, he really believes that.  And the 3 Amigos really believe that Joni Ernst is coming for their social security check and they will be reduced to selling pencils on the sidewalk.....except Don, I`ve heard he was smart enough to buy alot of land.

 

But all these liberals had it good in the 70`s 80`s 90`s and under Bush #43, they act like life is going to end induring the next 2 years under a Republican senate....it`s just so ridiculous...you`re just not sure if they`re serious or not, but I`m afraid they are.

 

Black people have given Obama too many chances, and I can on a certain level understand that.  But this is the problem with supporting someone based ONLY on skin color.  I think had Ben Carson been the first African-American president, they and the entire country would be better right now, race relations could not have been worse under Obama.

In other words, what you are saying is, every man do as he thinks is right in his own eyes. Correct? As long as he does not hurt anyone. But, what if he is hurting himself? At some point he will hurt others with his actions.

Tolerance is suposed to be a 2-way street.  A person`s personal space should not be invaded.  People`s healthcare should not have been messed with.  Gun owners should not live in fear that a shooting doesn`t become a "crisis that doesn`t go to waste for meaningful gun confiscation".  If you can put a sign in your businesses` window "no shoes, no shirt no service" you should also on religious grounds not force a Jewish caterer to service a neo-nazi banquet.

 

I guess if it doesn`t pick my pocket or break my arm, I am extraordinarily tolerant of others.   You might have the right to fart in a crowd, but no one should be forced to smell it.   It just seems back in 1982 people had that common sense.  I don`t know if that was the fact that the WWII generation was still mostly in charge or what, but during the last 30 years this nation has defined deviancy down.
