A P.O.S., no.

A lightening rod, yes.

He is also the most asute political voice of our day. He is to this generation what Mark Twain and Will Rogers was to theirs.

He is the epitome of what our founding fathers envisioned when writing the First Amendment. In 18th century England, voicing one's opinion about one's government could be a hanging offense. Speaking out against tyranny of government is the very basis of the Republic. You really show your utter ignorance by calling him a P.O.S. You, sir, have no effing clue.

Interesting how the MSM would like to shut him up with the "Fairness" Doctrine, when they are allowed to speak only because of said amendment.


Agreed. We need more Paul Harvey's and Rush Limbaugh's in this world.


No way in hell do we need more of those guys and those like them! The fewer the better.


What we need less of in this world are Ted Kennedy's and Hillary Clinton's.

One can't be fiscally conservative and socially liberal at the same time. Social liberalism has costs that must be paid out of the general treasury (tax dollars).

You may have "liberal" and "libertarian" mixed up. Before the Great Depression, the word "liberal" stood for the individual; since then, it's stood for groups, as in lobbying power, unions, etc.

Might I suggest a good book, The Forgotten Man, by Amity Shlaes? If Obama continutes to make the same mistakes FDR made, we're headed for the same results.

A Page From History:

Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 to December 19, 1968) was a leading
American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the
Socialist Party of America.

The Socialist Party candidate for President of the U.S., Norman Thomas, said
this in a 1944 speech:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the
name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist
program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing
how it happened.! "
He went on to say: "I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for
the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform."

Much truth to the statement.

As far as my liberal social views. They are meant to be ones without socialistic costs consequences:

1. Legalize Pot - Sure, I do not care, let the states pick and tax.
2. Pro-Choice - Sure, I do not care. Let the states have the choice. Would not do it myself, but certainly agree with someone having the choice.
3. Gay Marriage - Sure, I do not care. Let the states have the choice. Would not do it myself nor do I have any gay friends, but certainly agree with someone having the choice.

Those views are not traditional republican views, but they are very much in line with a growing number of younger republicans.

Obama is against gay marriage, and he's about as liberal as it gets.

Ok, let's take 'em one by one.

1. Legalize pot. Victimless crime, right? Then, why not legalize unlimited speed limit on highways? I'll tell you why. It's because speed leads to wreckless driving and not everyone can handle it equally, thus potential harm to others comes into play.

2. Pro-choice. Declaration of Independence gives us an unalienable right, The Pursuit of Happiness. But that's not possible without Liberty. And that's not possible without Life. That's why those rights are listed in the order they are. Furthermore, as a society, once we degrade INNOCENT HUMAN life by making it subservient to freedom of choice, we've gone down a slippery slope from which it may be impossible to recover. Who's next, old, infirm, handicapped, then the derelict, poor, homeless? Choice NEVER trumps innocent life in a civilized society.

3. Gay marriage. Similar argument to choice. Why not allow multiple partners? How about pedophilia, bestiality? If you allow it, then you must not be repulsed by it. And if you think the LAMBDA and radical gay movement will stop at marriage, you really are naive. The very basis of continuity in society is one-man, one-woman marriage. Taken to the extreme, a society would die out in two generations.

A civilized society has to have moral absolutes or it disintegrates toward non-existence.

Here's one you forgot. Porn. Simple to refute. Degrades women, leads to pedophilia. End of argument.

Alright, I am done with politics. Can discuss all day in PM's, but too much emotion on open boards. Not worth the hassle.

Now on to the ultimate bi-partisan topic - Cardboard.

As soon as a nut job right winger equates gay marriage with beastiality or pedophilia they loose all credibility in their argument. What a ridiculous statement and comparison. Yeah, the choice of two consenting adult men or two adult woman to be married and live together is the same as allowing beastiality or pedophilia. Give me a break.

And porn leads to pedophilia, really. So why isnt an incredibly large portion of america having sex with kids then? Because most of america has seen porn and an incredibly large percentage watch and buy it. and i love the new internet study that just came out.....8 of the top 10 states that download and watch porn on the internet were RED states.

really man, its lunatics like you that make absurd statements like your entire writeup that are wrong with the country. There are no facts whatsover to support any of your garbage claims. Its typical right wing b.s. fearmongering. Please point me to any legitimate study that shows that porn leads to pedophelia. just one will do.

No speedlimit is like legalizing weed? ok bud. So you must also be against the consumption of alcohol, against the sale of cigarettes, and against guns because as you say...."not everyone can handle it equally". No way, hurray for guns I'm sure you say!

And when your mom, wife, sister, daughter, or female friend is raped and becomes pregnant I want you to be the first one to go up to tell her that she has to have the rapists kid.... carry it in her belly for 9 months and then raise it the rest of its life as a reminder of the worst moment in her life. And when your mom, wife, sister, daughter, or female friend is pregnant and the doctors say that if having the baby full term means there is a greater than 50% chance the woman will die, you be the first one there saying she needs to take that risk. And when she dies from the complications be sure to tell her family taking the chance was worth her life. And your who's next examples are just ridiculous.

i can go on and on refuting your insane arguements but its clear that the brainwashing has taken a firm grip on you.

Is that all you've got?

I'm glad to see you enjoy such a pathetic existence.

I predict you will have a eye-opening epiphany someday, well into the future. At some point you'll wake up and the first words out of your mouth will be, "Uh-oh."

Moral absolutes do exist, whether you like it or not. Watch and learn, my friend. Take notes if you must.
