    If you are for abortion....Then you are a murderer.
    I wouldn't necessarily go that far, but pro abortion supporters, are taking a human life regardless of what they tell themselves to justify the action.

    If you are for SSM then you are an immoral sinner that will go to hell.
    Why's that. I am a conservative that really doesn't care if gay people get married or not. I have more important things to worry about. Such as, you liberal/progressives destroying my country.

    If you are against guns then your a facist commie.
    Well, when you want to ignore the Constitution, in favor of effecting someone's legal ownership of property simply because you don't like that property, then yes.

    If are for higher taxes then you hate the rich.
    You do hate the rich.

    It is so dishonest.

    See here is the point where I could play inflammatory little games and change your quote to read 'I am'... but in your case I think it is more a combination of youth + misinformation that shapes your silliness here.

    You wanna talk about "Wise Ass Things"... dude when you make outrageous claims about how liberals are destroying the country you've earned all the wise assness you're gonna get

    You don't feel perhaps it's a little arrogant to "MY COUNTRY" like you own it or like your sides opinion is the only one that's valid?

    Actually, didn't the SCOTUS win it via Citizens United? That's what it looks like to me.

    fyi Re: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker survives recall effort, NBC News projects

    We are totering on the brink of a handful of millionares buying the compleat government. They SCOTUS/Citizens United have bought & paid for walker, Rick scott & others.
    Isn't Citizens United a nifty name for a decision that will (if not overturned) unite the citizens in slavery to the corporations.

    I wonder, why was it that Obama was able to raise twice as much as McCain? Why did Wall Street invest so heavily in him?

    I'll give you this... In a place like Wisconsin, most peoples minds were already made up. There were very few independents who hadn't already figured it out. However, on a national stage, advertisements are not there to persuade democrats or republicans... they are there to persuade the undecided independent voters. So yes, money and advertisements are everything when it comes to national stage elections.
    All this stuff about money, is nonsense. Really, how is loads of money for a campaign going to change the fact that our economy and the unemployment numbers suck. Walker got reelected because he turned around a failing state.

    joke Re: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker survives recall effort, NBC News projects

    I respectfully disagree. Walker began his TV advetising in Jan. While Barrett had only 30 days as THE candidate, up 'til then he was vieing for the nommination against his own party. A whole different thing. Walkers false numbers on jobs created, didn't hurt, either.

    I'm not sure why the media pushes this notion that money = political wins. If your district votes very heavily democratic and liberal, and very rarely votes conservative, you can outspend your opponent 10-to-1 promoting conservative policies, you STILL won't win.

    Scott Walker didn't win because he "outspent" his opponent, he won because the VOTERS of Wisconsin understand that we need fiscal responsibility.

    That is your excuse, you could not win on the merits, so you pick an excuse. Liberals are good at finding excesses for failure. Obama can out raise Romney all he wants but that will not change the fact our economy and the unemployment numbers suck. People are not stupid.
