Once again, has no one ever told you that George W. Bush was President from January, 2001 through January, 2009? Has no one ever told you that the Speaker of the House was a Republican from January, 1995 through January, 2007? Has no one ever told you that Senate Majority Leaders were Republicans from January, 1995 through January, 2007? Have you ever heard of Trent Lott(R) or Bill Frist(R)?

I am a strict Constitutionalist! Many Tea-Party people say they are too. If a power is not explicitly given to the federal government, then it's a power left to the states. Many Tea Party people say Obama did not do enough to fix the BP oil disaster. I say, he did too much! Can someone point out to me where in the U.S. Constitution that the federal government is responsible for cleaning up oil spills? The U.S. Constitution clearly says oil disaster is for the states to deal with. The federal government has no responsibility or power granted by the aforementioned constitution to get involved at all.

A Republican in the private sector says "we work on budgets that are dictated as a percentage of our firm's income." So true, the Republican party promises that tax cuts are in our future, promise that no one retired or nearing retirement will miss one dime of "their" Social Security or Medicare, and in the next few decades, the Baby Boomers will be retiring in droves. And....they want to start another war against Iran. I want to ask that Republican "what's the equivalent of 'supply-side' theory in the corporate world?"
Remember Aldrich Ames....he got many anti-Soviet people killed because he worked at the CIA and told the KGB names of many of its enemies whose names had crossed his desk. Stupid Republicans are ambivalent about making that same mistake all over again. Republicans seek power by any means necessary. Republicans are a godless, odious and immoral people. Can hacks, government employees, bureaucrats of the CIA really be trusted? It just takes one.

You Might Be A Fascist If. . . 14. You are obsessed with crime and a major supporter of punishing those who commit crimes. So much so, that you don't care about the concept of 'innocent until proven guilty.' You are proud of executing people and aren't bothered if an innocent person is killed. You seek to make harsher laws, especially laws that target specific groups of people such as immigrants, women, and people of color. You also oppose Miranda rights and using humane interrogation tactics and you seek to undermine the independent judiciary. Sounds just like the Tea Party led Republican Party, doesn't it?
Ronald Wilson Reagan said we shouldn't negotiate with hostage takers. In fact, he did. Remember the Iran-Contra fiasco? He traded arms to Iran for the release of hostages. Iran got some F-5 parts and TOW missiles and then told their fellow Shia buddies in Lebanon to grab some more hostages. Reagan then arranged for more arm shipments to Iran. This was utter lunacy! And that cycle repeated again, and again and again. Reagan evidently thought the massive "Commie" base in Nicaragua was a bigger strategery threat than the Islamic Republic of Iran.

I suggest everyone here read a book called "Warning to the West," It was written by Alexander Solzhenitsyn and warns that American Marxists will take great pride in overtly waving the American flag with great ferocity. But one needs to listen closely to what they say. "These 'Communists' will always give themselves away by having an affinity for large 'state' run endeavers."

I just talked to a Republican. He said, "All the technology we enjoy today; you can thank the Apollo program, and our missions to the Moon in the 1960's." I asked, "You think some goob-mint program did all that?" He said, "America's greatest moment was when Neil Armstrong planted the flag on the moon!" I told him, "For every scientist and engineer at NASA there were at least a hundred scientists and engineers employed in the dreaded private sector." The Republican said, "It does not matter."
