Dennis Prager had a post last year where he talked about libertarianism being untenable. The key is the moral fiber - acceptance and compliance to laws outside of ourselves that keep societies strong. The reason immorality has never been survived by a society is that an immoral society does not have the discipline to fight off cancers like mounting debt, unchecked immigration, bloated government, and sloth among the populace.

I don't think it is victim status for the Muslims. I think deep down the liberals and a lot of other people are afraid if they make them mad they will commit terror. That trumps everything. They are for homosexuals unless it will cause personal harm.

No, it is socialism for me (guaranteed ROI, subsidized capital), socialism for you (take what you get allocated). Capitalism means competition. Big corporations pay politicians to keep from having to compete.
What Mr. Ransom doesn't realize is that it take real nads to pull off the dismantling of the greatest power and economy in the world. O is doing it systematically and effectively. We are the ones with no nads. We are watching the man go about his business and have nothing but Ransom and David Limbaugh columns to show for it.

amk, you are right. O has set the charge and lit the fuse. All he has to do now is play golf and make sure the obfuscation carries on long enough for it to be way too late for anyone to do anything about it. The flood of "children" are mostly juvenile anarchists. There are enough cute ones to make the ruse. End result - destruction of the USA and not a shot fired.

By getting out of the way, it will run the course it was intended - collapse of the private healthcare system and replacement with single payer government healthcare. Then everyone that isn't well connected in the government will get the same miserable healthcare as the next person. Just ask your neighbor Canada.

It's all about free stuff. If you take the bait of getting free stuff, the government owns you - yes, Obama wins.

I am not a residence of Texas and wrote his office an email. He replied with a signed pdf letter. I am sure it was a pro forma response to my issue, but it was a unique response. We need more of his type leading this country.
You're right about the war on poverty, proving what gets votes and allegiances is free stuff. Here in Providence a vote costs a slice of pizza. Where I came from in Princeton, IL, it was a drink at the local bar. Not everyone is that cheap, but enough are.
Let's see. An RN in France makes 17.50 Euro per hour (=$23.78), in USA it's $33.23. A gallon of gas is $8.14 in Paris and $3.69 in RI. They might have free time and free health care, but all they can afford to do is sit around. It all works out: total productivity/total population = net standard of living. In France we see how gov't forces inefficiencies that reduces productivity.

Lucky you highlight an avenue that the liberal would pursue: don't answer the question - protest it as being hateful and narrow minded.
