    Anyone who has ever taken a U.S. History class know that the parties have switch sides Left-Right over the years. The Republicans were the liberals and the Dems were the conservatives.
    That is utter BS. Lincoln would support none of the nonsense your party is trying to do today. None of it.

    I would not go as far as to say "none," but Lincoln was indeed a fiscal conservative, though not very conservative socially. He certainly was not a radical slave opponent either, at least not in the Chase and Seward extremes.

    But as the war continued he did indeed become much more progressive in his ideology, though not to the point I would call him a liberal. Perhaps a Moderate Republican.

    If Nevada keeps voting this turd in, it should be voted out of the Union.

    JFK wouldn't even be a Democrat today. FDR, yes. He's the sumbitch who created this kind of thinking.

    Someone tell Reid that it was the Republicans that freed the slaves.

    His polls dwindling rapidly, his party trailing badly in the pre-2010 polls, old Harry looks like he wants to go out in a blaze of glory. Where'd I put my matchbox?
    Seems like the usually liberal tactic of labeling their opponents as racists.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    No doubt....Looks like Scary Harry is trying to see if he can push his poll numbers to single digits.

    Poll Shows More Trouble in Nevada for Harry Reid
    Font size Print E-mail Share 3 comments Posted by Sergey Kadinsky
    (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)A new poll suggests even more trouble for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in his home state.

    Only 38 percent of the 625 registered Nevada voters polled had a favorable opinion of Reid in the poll released by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research that was commissioned by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

    Forty-nine percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of Reid in the poll with 13 percent remaining neutral.....
