not only did Herman Cain quote a song from the animated Pokemon movie [link] (on multiple occasions, mind you) , his famous 9-9-9 plan was from the childs video game Sim City [link][link] . The republicans this year were so fucked up they like didn't even seem real. i feel like the republican party is just like trolling the world at this point.
You can blame yourself for getting distracted by this mess that hasn't even started yet. Americans are in poverty, and the global banks are on fucking fire, people are getting slaughtered in the Middle East, and you're more worried about what some stupid hick in a suit has to say on national TV?
I'm not complaining, you obviously are not getting it. All I am doing here is basically saying the grass is green. It's 2012, not 2016. This whole thread is as fucking pointless as the Ron Paul fanbase.
Maybe I should ask you the same question: What the hell have you been doing to uphold your cause? Making a shitty thread on deviantart about something that won't even start in four years? Can you wait for one fucking presidency before spouting your pompous liberal bullshit?
You l-l-liberal. Wait, what was an Anarchist again? Oh, I can't remember. No matter I'm one. On the other hand, a anarchist group that wants to 'Organize'? Someone should buy these guys an encyclopedia.
I hate it when people use the word "liberal" as an insult/bad word. I don't use "conservative" to insult people.
As for an anarchist group that wants to "organize", yes, that is contradictory. Anarchy does not mean "direct democracy" or anything remotely utopian. It merely means "the lack of a formal/official government". Anarchism is not synonymous to "organization", so I'd say that "socialist anarchism" is an oxymoron, too.
If only we all lived in fear of your moral judgement. Shit is bad, but I haven't lost my sense of humor, and I certainly don't think there's anything wrong with discussing it. If you do, fine. Fuck off. I don't live under the rule of your iron thumb, and I don't care if my ethics get questioned over the internet VIA series of 0s and 1s. I want to make comedic predictions in regards to the next election, but you somehow you think that this is reflective of questionable ethics? You think that because I take the time to have a laugh about the soap opera of American politics, that I could care less about the global recession, the growing civil war in Syria, the health and well-being of my fellow man, and the looming austerity measures likely to take place come January? Making a thread about people in politics to discuss people in politics isn't indicative of a degraded moral compass. I don't try to dictate your morals, so why should you dictate mine? What the fuck is wrong with YOU?
The situation in Syria's fucked up? We all know. There's nothing more to discuss on the subject. Only thing happening on the economy is the fiscal cliff, and I already have two threads on that which failed to garner much discussion. At the moment, it's a boring political environment. Everything to discuss has been discussed. I want to talk about Presidential hopefuls. Don't like it? I don't care.
Take it from an NJ resident, Christie is a terrible governor. He's rude, cocky and he has done nothing but bad things for public education, police departments, fire departments, and other public programs. He also vetoed a legislation validating gay marriage in NJ, claiming to put it in a referendum that's not here yet.
He kind of lost me on his gun control stances, though I guess it'd be a toss up between him and Ron Paul if it came down to it. I always found it interesting in the primaries when him and Santorum would square off on foreign policy issues.
Elizabeth "high cheekbones" Warren would be a hilarious candidate. She can't handle being verbally challenged, and has already lost her temper with the press numerous times in her short time as senator-elect.
Clinton has been sunk by Benghazi.
And Biden? Oh god... The rest of the world would think this is a country of 5 year olds if he were president. And they'd be right in some sense.
I believe that a lesser regulated society actually equals a less prosperous society. I believe there needs to be a balance which protects worker's rights. I believe Wall St. regulation is a good start, and it's why I support the Dodd-Frank bill.
Marco Rubio's answer was actually very intelligent. He is one of the few politicians smart enough to know that politicians shouldn't be trying to answer questions of science. That's something you should be able to agree with creationists on.
For the reds do not forget Jindal. He thinks parents can teach their kids to believe creationism is a fact if they want to. He also likes school vouchers so parents can send their kids to religious private schools with tax payer money.
He does think female contraceptives should be over the counter.
Okay, if we're banning the teaching of stupid beliefs, then let's make it an imprisonable offense to teach socialist principles in any form in school. From that point on, any teacher who talks about FDR's New Deal without describing how it prolonged the Great Depression and mimicked contemporary Nazi economic policies will be thrown in jail.
"He thinks parents can teach their kids to believe creationism is a fact if they want to."
So you think the government should censor parents from teaching religious beliefs to their children?
And you think this is a GOOD thing?
"He also likes school vouchers so parents can send their kids to religious private schools with tax payer money."
Let's see, taking the burden off public schools and being placed in schools that are much more effective at educating children. Yes...such a horrible plan! Who cares if the public and the kids are better off...WE HATE THE JEBUS!!!!
