    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Care to back this up?

    As far as I can see he was about decentralised organisation and realist approaches to taking on the establishment. He wasn't Gandhi, he certainly attempted to fight his foes hard and at their own game, but he was hardly "horrible". He was certainly liberal but he was far above the centralised, establishment liberalism that Obama today stands for.

    Exactly what he has to do with elites I don't know. And community organising is a lot more democratic than the usual electioneering.

    I think it's funny how they're terrified by radio talk show hosts like Limbaugh and Hannity.
    Why would you think anyone is "terrified" at the idea of right wing talk radio hosts the likes of Hannity and Limbaugh? They aren't all that great and they didn't really do you any good last election.

    What percentage are you in? the 80% or 20%?

    Plenty of slapnuts exist on both sides of our pathetic 2 party system.

    I agree 100%.

    It's idiots like Hannaty and the media in general that hurt a good candidate like Paul.

    PS 3rd party candidates in general get a raw deal from our media.

    Rush is the wrong person to put the GOP back together. The day of his kind of extremist rhetoric is over. I think Republicans are sick of that kind of negative, virulent blabber. At least I hope they are. The campaign that was mounted against Obama was one of the most detestable things the extremist right have ever done. You don't need them trying to fix the damage they did.
    Actually, I agree with you here. Limbaugh is not the right man to be promoting the Republican party. People are going to believe that the party is nothing but extremists. Limbaugh hurts more than helps.

    Well the first New Deal had Republicans as a minority party for the better part of the 20th century because they were so reactionary in the 30s. Don't make the same mistake again or you could find yourselves in the same position you were in.

    Absolutely not. The more Rush speaks...the better it is for moderates//liberals.
    Rush is such a hypocrite/idiot that he alienates everyone except for the right-wing idiots that simply regurgitate everything he says.

    I hope Rush keeps speaking LOUDLY. That means good things for those in my camp.

    Wrong as usual, no surprise though. Find one post of mine anywhere, where I've rallied, or even supported Limbaugh.

    They're talk show hosts, entertainers. Real Republicans aren't enamoured by media types like the slapnut liberals are. You're the ones getting all "tingly" up your leg...lol...

    30 days in and we're on top of the world. Your boy is being exposed for the fraud that he is.
