    I never understood why conservatives are constantly self- victimizing when their policies and ideology are the ones that got us into this mess in the first place.
    It was conservative ideology that got us into the great depression, it was conservative ideology that got us into the great recession - as Bush sr put it, voodoo economics is indeed bull****.

    Had tea baggers gotten their way, the nation would've been destroyed in artificially created depression.

    Its not so much a conservative strategy as it is a conservative media strategy.

    For years "liberals" were lambasted as always playing victim.

    And yet "conservatives" at every turn cry that they're victims of bias, and marginalization, that their religion, their language and their way of life are under threat from liberals, leftists, communists, socialists, muslims, mexicans and hollywood.

    I put it all in quotation marks because I'm not trying to make sweeping generalities about conservatives themselves, more their media, specifically fox news.

    Edit: Oh jesus I almost forgot the gays... those evil, America hating muslim secularists.

    And just like when FDR was president, progressive economic policies still don't work.

    Didn't work at restoring the private sector, but I don't think that was a goal of FDR, or is a plausible goal for anyone.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
