Barry isn't hip. He's a fraud wearing mom jeans. Further, McCain and Romney aren't traditionalists; they're passionless, middle-of-the-road, compromising weaklings hand-picked by the stupid GOP Elite who believe moderates win elections. Tell it to Ronald Reagan and then get back to me.

Who says the GOP elite are not commies as well? Anyone that believes the government should have more power is a commie. Anyone that believes the government can solve problems is a commie. Anyone threatened by everyday Americans joing together to be heard is a commie.

Commies love power. There are no men fit to rule over other men. The Constitution is our king. The Constitution stands in the way of people that want to use government to oppress us dumb masses.

We the people do not need the government to take care of us. We need the government to follow the rules that have been laid down for them.

The trend in organized civilizations is to extend the life a tradition by making it law.  This can either be a beneficent move that preserves perpetual wisdom or a sanctimonious imposition that attempts to put an end to the debate.
