...a declaration of independence, a constitution and a bill of rights to name a few. Democrats brought slavery. Republicans brought freedom. Democrats brought Jim Crow laws. Republicans brought the Civil rights movement. Democrats barred the doors of schools. Republicans marched with minorities and broke down those barriers. Today, the Democrats tell minorities "you don't have to work... we'll provide for you. Just stay in these ugly cement tenements we've made for you". They've created a federal plantation system, and the ugly results are plain for all to see... generations of ruin.
Liberals are attacking the freedom of speech at every turn. Liberals are attacking the freedom of the press at every turn. Liberals are attacking the freedom of religion at every turn. Liberals are attacking the right to keep and bear arms at every turn. Liberals are promoting unwarranted search/seizure at every turn. I could go on... but suffice it to say that liberals are ANTI-FREEDOM, ANTI-CONSTITUTION, ANTI-BILL OF RIGHTS. "Liberalism" and "Progressivism" are yet more names under which socialists hide. The ugly results of Socialism (hundreds of millions of grisly murders in the last century alone) are ALWAYS the end-result of socialist government. Eventually, there comes a time when many will simply refuse to live under the chains of oppression. We are reaching that point. There are tens of millions of us who will NEVER be told how to live by political hacks. What's coming next? Will the brown shirt, jack-booted federal thugs come knocking? I for one WILL NOT SUBMIT to your societal engineering.
40?? I would say that the liberal mindset begins to falter the moment someone receives their first real paycheck, looks at the total, and wonders where the $#@% it all went. For most of us, this happens in our late teens or early twenties. The problem is the millions of folks who skate along without ever holding down a real job, and who feel "entitled" to the earnings of others.
So, in the "classical" sense, you're quite gay (happy). Stop mincing words. We all know that liberalism today is anything BUT "liberal" (in the old dictionary sense of the word), just as they are anything BUT "progressive". This is indeed an Orwellian corruption of language, but you're not helping, you're only confusing the issue.

Colorado Obamacare Ads Cause Concern

It's been widely reported that TENS of MILLIONS have LOST their insurance due to Obamacare. Compare that to the hundred thousand that have (reportedly) signed up, and you're left with the FACT that under Obamacare, millions LESS people are now insured. Obamacare was supposed to INCREASE the number of insured people... and it seems to have done the exact opposite so far! Obamacare was supposed to DECREASE the cost of healthcare... and it seems to have done the exact opposite so far! Obamacare was supposed to let you keep your current plan and doctor if you liked them... and it seems to have done the exact opposite so far! The very premise that you could dump a huge federal bureaucracy on top of the existing healthcare system, and somehow make it run better, faster and cheaper... is like saying that you can put fat bureaucrats on the backs of marathon runners to make them run further and faster. Add the fact that the Obamacare websites want you to give the federal government access to your bank accounts before they will quote a plan... and you're left with the knowledge that only a complete idiot would EVER sign up for this debacle!

The name "Loyal Prog" tells me his comment wasn't intended as either sarcasm or satire. He drank the Kool-Aid and now he's making excuses for the failures of his socialist masters.

Programs "the people" wanted?!? Really?? - I think you mean programs DEMOCRATS wanted. For the past 50 years, Democrats have raided Social Security like it was their own personal piggy bank. It was raided to fund all manner of social programs (ie: bottomless pits into which we've dumped countless TRILLIONS of dollars). And it's not as if these raids were public knowledge. Most programs were pitched with nary a whisper about where the funds would come from. Democrats LOVE to pretend that all government funding is like magical pennies from heaven... appearing from nowhere and with no need for the people to actually pay for it. Dems speak of their programs as "investments", as if they will somehow pay dividends in some future fairy-land scenario. Face it... we've been LIED to, repeatedly and in the worst possible ways. There are many Democrats today that parrot the line (and actually believe) that Obama somehow "cut the deficit in half", and think that our outlook is rosy and sound. They have no idea that this administration has piled on the equivalent of a new mortgage worth of debt for every taxpaying American... and their children... and their children's children...
... and I ALSO remember when Clinton, Kerry, Gore, and all the other Democrats (who were privy to the EXACT same intelligence reports) said that Iraq had WMD. ...and I remember when Saddam gassed TENS OF THOUSANDS of Kurdish men, women and children to death in the most grisly fashion imaginable. ... and I remember when the huge stockpiles of sarin gas shells were discovered in Iraq. ...and I remember when yellowcake uranium was discovered there. ...and I remember when the Israelis bombed the Iraqi reactor that was under construction. Only liberal parrots like yourself continue to spout silly, childish rhymes like "Bush lied, people died". You're nothing but a "useful tool" of the left.
Well, that's nothing new. Democrats have spent the last hundred years as subversive and deceptive little Socialists. They've hidden behind words like "liberal" and "progressive". I've managed to get a few to finally admit they want "European style Socialism", but it took a LOT of debate and when finally cornered, they'll admit it. Those were just ordinary folks... good luck getting a slick and polished politician to admit their real agenda!
Liberals claimed government could make insurance CHEAPER... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed you'd be able to keep your own PLAN... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed you'd be able to keep your own DOCTOR... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed NO NEW TAXES on the middle class ... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed annual premium SAVINGS of $2,500 ... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed NO INCREASE in the deficit ... guess what... they LIED! Liberals claimed companies wouldn't dump their current health plans... guess what ... they LIED! Liberals claimed businesses would NOT cut peoples hours to avoid Obamacare regulations ... guess what ... they LIED! Liberals claimed the government wouldn't have access to personal info (health records, bank accounts, etc)... guess what ... they LIED! Liberals claimed the IRS wasn't going to grow in scope or power as a result of Obamacare ... guess what ... they LIED!
