    It won't be amended, tweaked or fixed. The Democrats and Obama have no desire to do any of that.

    You are incapable of seeing my side of the fence. Therefor you fantasize about what it is like.

    I'm just the messenger of the GOP civil war. Don't blame me that the incoherencies of conservatism are catching up with the Republicans.

    It's going to be amended and tweaked. Almost all major programs in the last 60 years have been.

    Too bad, Mycroft. That's the way it's going to go. Crying about it won't change it.

    It wasn't a personal attack, nor did I claim you used the term incorrectly. I was simply pointing out the humor in a person whose ideology is based upon the right of one man to live as a parasite sucking the blood of his neighbor, now turning to ridicule that same parasite ideology.

    I agree with the first couple sentences. The last part is some major bias speaking. I don't think they ever meant to form a separate party. Like OWS was for the dems, they are a movement (here come the bowel jokes ).

    Didn't visit the link did ya? Go ahead, go there and then you can eat your crow. Not that I expect you'll come back and say you were wrong, that happens so often you'd have to live here.

    Yeah, another troll who knows everything, and a new poster can't know anything. Just like FR.

    Oh well, it appears that he isn't taken seriously by many people here, some people just troll to start a fight for no good reason. I've been around internet forums since the start, I recognize a troll quickly, and know that when you starve a troll of the attention they desperately seek, they die.

    I think he became very jaded after the 2000 primary. But beyond that, he's always been a pretty mixed bag on policy
