    Show this to be one of the issues The Obama referred to..

    You've proven it. Thank you.

    Well, it IS The Obama we're discussing, so I am not surprised you think that.

    In fact, you have done everying you can to -avoid- the issue.
    And I really dont have the time to waste on that.

    Give Him a pass if you want -- I'm not surprised -- but don't try to blame -your- lack of curiosity on anything having to do with me.

    IOW you're not really interested in discussion but rather, you thought you'd get a bunch of your buddies to chime in right away in mockery. When that didn't happen you're only left with opposition, who are grinding your pathetic attempt at partisan hackery to a nub.

    Get back to us when you figure out that a REPUBLIC is a form of Democracy and that there are various forms of Democracy.

    Yeah then I'll check snopes and media matters... ROFLMAO!

    Sell that to someone who doesn't understand the progressive agenda and revisionist history...

    Private property can not exist in a democracy...

    Beloved as the term is to progressives, that dog won't hunt!

    Sure it can! Force is the best way to spread democracy. Remember how Saddam Hussein did it? His military dictatorship spread democracy so well that he got 100% of the vote in the last election before we went in.

    Then we blew up that democracy. BUT we used MORE force and created ANOTHER democracy! All in a span of a few years! Way faster than the usual way.
