Or perhaps the "green" loving millionaire Michael Moore that jets around the country telling us all will be better if we watch his movies, get fat and tour around the country to ask for more of other peoples money. Yep, those nice rich guys on the left are always warning us about those mean rich guys on the right; curiously, when we get a rare peek at their personal tax returns, it is those mean rich guys that give away far more to charity causes, while the nice guys want higher taxes paid by most, so that they may be seen as generous too.

    The religion card. If you don't vote for Romney, you hate Mormons. Fair game after all the race baiting when Obama was just a candidate, imo.

    Re: Is Mitt Romney a Liberal?

    [QUOTE=haymarket;1060646768]I also believe in calling out those who need to be called out. And that is what I am doing with Romney and his supporters.

    We are on the cusp at this time in history. It reminds me a great deal of a chapter in the US History book I used to teach from which labeled the era of the 1850's as The Failure Of The Politicians. And we know what the result of that was.

    Wanting to see America remain great for all its people seems to be something to be mocked and derided by some here. Fine. We obviously have very very different visions of what America is and who the American people are.

    I would ask that all read the excellent work by William R. Shirer- THE RISE AND FALL OF THE THIRD REICH. Shirer was the NY Times reporter in Germany for a long time and his book does a thorough and insightful job in chronicling the rise of nazism in Germany. One cannot help but read it and compare far too many similarities between what is happening in the USA today.

    As the elf queen Galadriel said in LORD OF THE RINGS, we are balanced on the edge of a knife. Stray and we could fail as a nation and as a people. I would hope we can successfully find a way to neither cut ourselves in half nor fall into oblivion.

    And Washnut - exposing the agenda of the far right wing is engaging in a true debate of ideas. Perhaps they are ideas you simply do not want exposed?[/QUOTE

    Michigan was once a bastion for the middle class. Now it is filled with politicians like you and is a basket case. There seems to be a lot of talk about far right. It seems to me we should look at the destruction done to this country by what is the new far left.

    You seem to be also frantic with recent posts, now pointing to the rise and fall of third reich. Get a grip.

    Sad the depths you will go to malign others. Shows another side of the new far left. Attack any who do not toe the line I hopes of scaring them off. Your slime will not scare me off.

    Not sure liberal posters on this site would agree. A fiscal conservative and social liberal is from the FAR right according to many here.

    A fiscal conservative and social liberal tends to be a libertarian, though there are exceptions. ALso note: I am a liberal poster on this site, so at least one of us agrees with me. The rest are perfectly within their rights to be wrong.

    According to many on this site, libertarians are racist thus hate Obama, e.g. tea party folks. There are many democrats who identify with (the public) Clinton. That would be my definition of liberal, not a libertarian.

    Do we really have to play this stupid game? According to many on this site, about a million things are true, most of which are not.

    No! Let me try to explain. A Mormon has been taught that they are not the same as other people effectively that they are superior to others. This is not equivalent to most other religions. They don't treat others badly, they just understand that they are unfortunate. In Phoenix they called themselves the Good People of the East Valley. They even wrote a law reducing their SUV taxes that was only supposed to be known by them. Almost all Mormon's are Republican. If you understand the Romney is a Mormon first then a Republican second

    from Washnut

    Michigan was once a bastion for the middle class
    .
    It still is and I see no objective evidence presented to the contrary.


    Now it is filled with politicians like you and is a basket case.
    You labor under the false belief that I am a politician. I am not.


    There seems to be a lot of talk about far right.
    Yes, they are the major threat to the future of America.


    It seems to me we should look at the destruction done to this country by what is the new far left.
    By all means do present your verifiable evidence to support that statement of historical fact.

    You seem to be also frantic with recent posts, now pointing to the rise and fall of third reich. Get a grip.
    I urged people here to read the book by William L. Shirer THE RISE AND FALL OF THE THIRD REICH. It is one of the most priased works of history in the last half century. I did so hoping people here can learn from it.
    You do understand that there was a real flesh and blood third reich and they play a major role in the history of the 20th century of the world don't you?
    You do understand that we can learn from history don't you?

    We have posters her on the right openly advocating revolution and breaking up of America. I think Shirer would be great reading for them and everyone here.

    Sad the depths you will go to malign others
    .
    Please show where I went to depths to malign anyone. What I stated was what many others here have stated - that Mitt Romney is a man lacking any true beliefs or convictions and has sold his soul to the far right to be nominated by the party controlled by the far right. I have stated that if the party of the far right gains control of all three branches of government and enacts many of the ideas they have loudly and long espoused, that such results would be terrible for America.

    How is that anything but honest?

    Shows another side of the new far left. Attack any who do not toe the line I hopes of scaring them off. Your slime will not scare me off.
    I do not expect to scare you off. I do not expect to convince you. I do not expect to appeal to you for your support. All those things mean nothing to me and are more inconsequential than being irrelevant.
