A Liberal Supermajority

Just wow man. Scary.

Yep. If the American voting public gets wind of this, I doubt that they’ll vote in Senator Government. One can only hope they’re educated soon enough about what’s to come.

The American people will not want this unholy trinity; by a large majority, they oppose most of those pending bills; and by a very large majority oppose large-scale redistributive policies.

(O, and you’re a fucking racist!!!)

Hah.

:slight_smile:

Terrifying.

Nice op-ed piece.

Whats most scary to me is that this is a major newspaper reporting this. WSJ, while undoubtedly leaning conservative, has been extremely good about staying mostly un-cheerleader like, and pretty good at remain unbiased and fair in criticisms of both Mccain and Obama.

The fact that this was published as it was is a scary indicator.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

The president will have a super majority!

My god, maybe they’ll expand the federal governemnt by 40%, maybe they’ll pass a 3$ trillion dollar budget as the largest in history, maybe they’ll propose military spending amounts that haven’t been seen since WW2, maybe they’ll redistribute wealth globally via $35 billion dollars in foreign aid, maybe they’ll…oh, yeah, that already all happened, a lot of which was under a republican ‘super majority’.

Carry on you terrified vaginas.

Get ready for spending to explode beyond what we have seen over the last 8 years.

Yeah, because Bush and the republican congress didn’t explode spending at allllll.

What is with you people?

Obama Chavez will be very busy spreading that wealth. Without any serious opposition. It’s going to get real ugly.

A) I’m not republican

B) I never said they didn’t

C) It’s my belief the dems will make it worse if they gain control of both ends of congress and the POTUS

Try again Copernicus.

So basically, instead of sharing the same rage about Bush and the GOP exploding spending the last 8 years which already HAPPENED, we’re all going to be outraged about SPECULATION of how much the democrats are going to spend.

Yeah, that makes sense.

It’s clear that with either majority(GOP or Dems) massive deficit spending will occur. Where that spending will be directed towards is the primary difference.

A number of traditionally Conservative/GoP members have been critical of Bush and the GoP. I personally have been very critcal of Bush, McCain, and the entire Republican Party (except for Dr. No). I’d say more so than our leftist friends have been of the Democrat congress and THEIR spending.

I have plenty of rage about government spending period. If it’s spending on unconstitutional socialist self destructive bullshit I don’t care which party does it… it’s bad and the GOP has had it’s share.

I have no problem with military spending or the war. I would vote that we go into Iraq again if we had it to do over and view anything other than total victory as the greatest threat to our national security other than Barack Obama. If we did not waste colossal amounts of money on self destructive socialist crap we would have plenty of money for the things we actually are actually supposed to be spending it on.

You have no problem with military spending or the war? You’d go into Iraq AGAIN?

So you consider self destructive socialist crap bad, but self destructive foreign policy and intervention is good?

You do know that true conservatism is opposed to foreign intervention, foreign installments, and in general war…Right?

Military spending is actually allowed by the Constitution. It even says so. Most of the rest of the stuff isn’t.

“True” conservatism, (I assume you mean the Buchananesque paleo-con type), likes to play a little bit fast and loose with the historical data, usually to complain about Israel and the Jewish lobby. We were using our navy to interdict piracy in the Mediterranean as early as the 1780s. Then there was the war of 1812,…

Maybe if you have been hanging around the political forums more you’d know that me and a vast majority of people are DISGUSTED at how much the deficit has exploded under Bush. I think he lost his veto pen.

This thread is not about Bush so stop making it into one.

Try again Einstein.

I am beholden to no one for my views Pal. I know what I believe.

Every sane person ever born is opposed to war dumbass. I do not wake up in the morning hoping we find another reason to go to war, but where countries or causes have determined to accomplish our demise I DO NOT CARE WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO STOP IT.

The world is not a nice place populated with generally agreeable folks who will leave you alone if you just smile and mind your own business. Foreign installments are subject to case by case assessment, but this is not the 18th century. What happens on the other side of the world will find it’s way to our front yard if we do not crush that shit “over there”.

I am for attacking and defeating EVERY SINGLE credible threat that arises and only wish we had the money we waste here to spend “over there”. If we go after somebody by mistake I will not like it, but tough shit. It’s better safe than sorry for me and I do not give a flying f**k what other nation on Earth likes it or not.

I went over this whole group of issues already with Pookie. One serious oversight can spell mortal disaster in today’s world. You peacenik dreamers are sickening and our enemies cannot wait for the day when you finally have control of this nation. You’ll hand it away trembling and cowering in the name of flowery compassion.

Says who? You? The US is the only country in the world with military bases all over the planet. So how many other countries are facing a large terrorist threat besides Isreal(for different reasons) or the US?

Hmmmmmmmmm?

And where did Afghanistan or Iraq determine to accomplish our demise? Iraq was a credible threat? Since when? When they sent UN inspectors and Blitz told everyone that Saddam didn’t have anything? Is that what you’re talking about?

Ah yes, TOUGH SHIT, accountability is not an issue for the US of A. If we feel threatened and retaliate, even if it were wrong, TOUGH SHIT. Just imagine if China, or Russia adopted the same policy, you people would be condemning every military action they took.

I’m not a “peacenik dramer” as you so eloquently put it, you war mongering chimp. I’m for war so long as all other options have been examined and exhausted. War should be the last option, not the one you immediately jump to. You’re incredible amount of fear and paranoia leaves you with an inability to think in a rational and logical way, it’s impossible talking to morons like you.

India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, China, the Phillipines, Thailand, East Timor, Canada, Sri Lanka, the UK (especially), continental Europe, Indonesia, Morocco, Tunisia, Nigeria, Somolia, Kenya, Eritrea, Saudi Arabia,…

just off the top of my head. Jihad is pretty ubiquitous, unless your head is in the sand and therefore can’t see it.
