Why is there no liberal crying for this? in Speakers Corner April 20, 2012 Quote Quote Quote I think most "liberals" will agree the biggest failure of Obama's presidency has been the continuation and expansion of Bush's Orwellian policies, but examples like this demonstrate there really is very little difference politically between the two parties. Both parties are basically corporate owned entities with slightly different strategies for placating the masses. It's all a dog & pony show designed to divide and distract the populace. Those with their hands on the levers of power love that we idiots are down here bickering about Obama vs Bush. Political Science 101. I'm here all week folks. If only most of the posters here realized this, then some real discussion could begin. Instead, it's the same old shit day in and day out here -- right vs. left, lib vs conservative, dem vs rep nonsense. I dunno...I've been saying this for a couple years now. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=3907568;search_string=genius;#3907568 I think I may have brought it up a couple times prior too, as I'm sure there were probably many before me... It's interesting to note that back then it seemed it was primarily the liberals that seemed to object to this notion...I found lucky's comments rather humorous: Quote Republicans = side of corporations / wealthy Dems = side of the people Even andy's comments are noteworthy given the subject of this thread: Quote Democrats in office = corruption, cronyism, self-dealing and a bit of kindness human compassion versus Republicans = corruption, cronyism, self-dealing and abject selfishness coupled with mean-spiritedness. it's nice to see that many of us are now finally starting to unite wrt to this problem...the question is, what do we do now? start voting for those that work for us and keep their word, not the ones that by our votes and keep building our debt would be a good start.
