    Hardly....Let's see, 30 years ago I was 18 yrs old and barely even concerned with politics. But I think if you were to do an honest assessment of spending in this country liberals far outweigh the destructive spending that has gone on.

    By "destructive" do you mean social programs that try to help ordinary people instead of giving tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans?

    Your propaganda has been addressed many times. Heck, Obama doesn't even use the "tax cuts for the wealthy" anymore.....Get with it man.

    Its just Eurotrash just being Eurotrash who think that everybody else who works for their money somehow owes them something. If those idiots are not careful their governments might ban protests or claim that kind of protests is a form of hate speech.

    "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"

    No doubt I agree. But how far away is the US from that, I'd say listen to liberal radicals in this country and I determine not far at all.

    Yes. They took that money from other people, and are doing things with it that those people don't support.

    Yes, that's destructive, why can you not understand this? Do you want people to vote on a reality TV show and determine how much you should be spending on your kids?
    Wait, that's not realistic. Do you want someone to force you to PAY FOR the reality TV show,that then votes on how you spend your money on your children? It's destructive, and aside from war/conquest has probably destroyed more civilizations in human history than any other reason.

    Government should support our freedoms and ensure them, and check power. That's about it. The rest, is up to us. that is, you, and me, to go out and bust ass to make a buck in the manner that best suits our goals and dreams..(or the nagging of our wife), whatever.

    And how is that in any way, shape or form, propaganda?
