For someone so vehemently for big government you seem to have a lot of problems with people in government.

You’re all a bunch of America-hating communist liberal gay terrorists.

You really think obama’s policies are for people over big business?

And I want a unicorn.

Since I might not get one I settle for a more realistic option.

Hey, here is 1 million for your campaign and if you do not spend it all you can keep the rest. On the other hand there are “the people”. I wonder who will get what he needs?

What the hell are you talking about?

The GOP is out of power.

And you would do well to stay abreast of current events - elected Demcorats are the ones lambasting critics of the health care plan as “un-American” and who were recently collecting information on anyone spreading “fishy” disinformation.

You want a bona fide McCarthy comparison, you got one - you just picked the wrong party.

Oh?

Which particular accusations were vindicated?


#19

I think both parties do this. When your political platform doesn’t actually serve the people, you are forced to resort to such tactics. It happened during the Bush years when there was dissent over the Iraq war, and it’s happening now over the health care bill.
