    if it makes you feel better go ahead, and express your view of what you think I believe.

    but from what I said, I stand by it,..the left do not believe in property rights, and they ideas are from a collective mindset.

    really, ...what I said is dead on for you, because I know you do not respect property rights

    thanks by the way for your attention, I know I stuck a nerve, since you had to address me.

    The GOP has been in danger of dying out for quite a while.

    And that danger increases as time goes by and the GOP fails to attract anyone besides old white men.

    Not unless you went to school before the Revolutionary War.

    Haven't you ever looked at what is under the Democrat tent ? It's a frickin carnival.



    And the GOP tent has mostly old white men under it.

    Which is why the GOP will be going out of business before the middle of this century.

    You forget, in Alternate Universe GOP land, they are the big tent party. I've never seen a larger bunch of self-delusional people. It's like a cult.

    The Republican Party has spent the last 50 years alienating blacks, Mexicans and women, and wonder why they're going down the toilet in demographics.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Guess what? If you don't get enough votes, you don't get to govern.

    Ask Mitt Romney how that works. He's using his car elevator while Barack Obama is living in the White House and running the U.S. government.
