Yeah, you are completely correct...  Lincoln represented the north, the Democrats represented the Confederacy...  now, it is completely reversed... the Republican stronghold is in the South... they don't carry any of the northern states that Lincoln did...  the Republicans use absurd wedge issues about social subjects that don't have anything to do with money to divide people these days... things like abortion, gay marriage, stem cell research, etc...  then they loot the national treasury...  just look at Halliburton—  Cheney took 72 of the headquarters to the Bahamas while he was CEO in the 1990s to avoid paying U.S. taxes, and now Halliburton has gotten filthy rich in Iraq...  so Halliburton is paid with U.S. taxes, and they don't pay U.S. taxes... it is pure genius...  but now the middle class cannot afford the luxury of voting on social issues like Clinton's infidelity...  the middle class is broke, and now they are voting about the money, and the Republicans are doomed to be a minor party for a very long time, just like they were for a long time after the Great Depression...  but they are very entertaining on TV these days, now that they are harmless...

 
Never underestimate the GOP. Remember they control the corporate media in most ways.  The owners are very rich and so are mostly Republican.  They get most of their revenue from giant corporations like Big Pharma, Big Oil and Coal, Health insurance corporations and Banks etc. 95% of talk  radio shows  are extremely right wing for the same reasons. Limbothas by ar the biggest audience every day. As long as they control the airwaves they will be in control of the masses.

For instance, since Lincoln, name ONE thing the Republicans have done for the middle class? You cant!

They do NOT want you to know this but they have been AGAINST every social advance of the middle class, like Social security, minimum wages (they were actually for a MAXIMUM wage for workers), 40 hour work week, paid vacation,  Medicare, Medicaid, GI Bill for education, Civil Rights, womens vote and right to choose, and much, much more.  Their only true loyalty is and always has been the very rich and giant corporations.

I'm not sure that the huge declaration/link is helpful. Just as I'm not sure fuh2's post mentioning straitjackets was helpful.

While I'd love some civil political talk here, I guess it's not possible. And HC, I'm not blaming you. Or fuh2. Or Beaker. Or whoever.

For anyone interested, here's an article that appeared in Salon today. It discusses right-wing hand-wringing over the DHS communications to local police about "growing right-wing extremist activity." (And HC, I'm sure it touches on some of the same points your link does. But really, the huge red letters were a total turnoff.)

I guess the point raised in the article is my point about the whole Tea Party thing: where was the outrage before? If government spending is an issue, why weren't these people upset before now?

Don't answer. I'm pretty sure it can't be discussed without personal attacks and flaming.

So you're not only okay with having a thread titled RightWingNutZ, but you actively want to post to it.

Uh huh.  So much for lowering the rancor here.

I guess its only fair then if a few new threads are created devoted to highlighting LeftWingNutZ.

After all, that would be the fair and balanced thing to do.

Maybe I'll address that oversight after I get back from another fine evening of live music.  Have fun with your hatred folks. 
 
Why not just start the "I Hate Everyone Who Isn't Me" thread?

As for stringing Republicans up from the lamp posts...well, the government could toss them in jail, throw away the key, and tell anyone inquiring about them to fuck off, because after all they might possibly theoretically develop into a threat some day.  Of course, some smarmy lawyer from the American Communist Losers' Union could use the dratted writ of Habeas Corpus to spring them (the ACLU has taken the case of Republicans from time to time, BTW).    Oh, that damned Habeas Corpus!!  Of all the stupidity - making the government give good reasons for jailing people!

See, the parts I have highlighted in red, I just have a wee bit of disagreement of opinion with. 

Much more importantly, what you and Dio also missed is the fact that Keyes is an effing LOON.  Watching the primaries would have told you that.

That's the problem with American politics ... you allow your loons, thieves, crooks and liars to keep their elected post more often than not.  Up here, we usually blast them out of their seat with shame and public condemnation.

And you're *not* posting to it? Actually, I posted here because I happened to have a photo of Alan Keyes, which I took with my own little hands. And Keyes was being discussed. And I genuinely am curious about the Tea Parties. I have questions, but I sure as hell am not going to ask them here.

Someone at RP (I'm sorry I can't remember who, as I don't have time to file every little post away for future use) asked if we couldn't just have one thread entitled "Political Extremists." I'd be okay with that.

As for the "hatred" bit, just cut it out. Apparently what some see as hatred, others see as normal discourse, depending on the point of view. It'd be wonderful if there could be fewer threads inflammatory thread titles, but I guess that's not going to happen. I'd rather see "Fox Spews" as "Fox News: Tactics" or something a little less reactionary, just as I'd rather see a thread called "Political Extremists" than "RightWingNutz" or "The Moonbat Times" or what have you.

Whatever. Enjoy your live music.

Albert Einstein once said "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results". 

The RightWing nuts are the epitome of this. Their answer is STILL "Cut taxes on the rich and corporations and deregulate big business".

They all need to be taken away  in straight jackets.
