Suppose you and a few of your very rich firends took a look at the world and saw that there were two big problems. First was world population growth, and second was the rise of a middle class in many countries where no middle class had existed before. The combination of the two factors indicated a serious environmental catastrophe was about to happen. They pondered how to stop the inpending disaster, and they came up with a simple plan. In essence, the plan was to destroy the middle class. Take away the social safety nets, render the public school systems ineffective, disenfranchise as many voters as possible, and make the tax structure regressive so that upward economic mobility is stifled.

A flawed candidate for sure, but still clearly superior to Brown.
If your argument consists of pejorative terms and threats of violence, then you must be a disciple of Limbaugh, or Beck, right?

Nations are not people, Romney to the contrary. They don't have friends, and they don't 'deserve' anything. They more resemble simple organisms, they have a natural life cycle.

Too bad you don't have a brain to give to the cause. And no, paranoia is no substitute for intellect.

There is no conspiracy to take away our freedoms. Really, there's not. But you can find a correlation between freedom and population. Simply put for you guys, the more of us there are, the less freedom we can have. Example: When everyone in florida lived on a one acre lot, septic tanks were fine. But when lot size went to half of that, it was more than could be absorbed, and sewers had to be installed. Sewers became mandatory, not to stifle individual freedom, but so that A.- Developers could make more money with high density housing, or B.- To provide housing for an increasing population. Or both. When I hear about shedding regulation, I visualize drums of toxic sludged dropped off in the middle of the night.

The First Amendment prohibits prior restraint, we should point that out to anyone who might be interested. But we should also tell them how you can sue the pants off anyone who intentionally harms you.
