  3. Now is Barack's time.
    I'm so proud of Hillary though, and I think I'm falling for her more.
    Here's hoping she still has that fight in her in 8 years time and runs for president at the end of Barack's 2nd term!

  6. JBY, you probably aren't a racist, but you may be an idiot. Do you even know what a socialist is? And is socialism automatically bad? Or are you too dim to realise that some of the wealthiest, healthiest and most advanced nations have had democratic socialist governments for decades?

  8. I know the Convention can spark emotions. Should Obama get elected though, I believe GLBT issues will not be advanced much further at the end of his first term then they are today. I know you a lot of you communist advocates on here all think its idiotic, but a healthy adversary is needed to advance a cause. Not an unsupportive pacifier that only trots out your cause when they need votes to get elected. Then you get pushed into a corner and told to shut up while more important issues are pending, like getting re-elected (Hi Bill. Wisdom comes with age and experience and I can tell from most of the Obama supporter posters on here that a lot of you have a long way to go.

  9. @Vi Agara, yeah, because the Jews did so much better under Hitler. And what the hell does communism have to do with it?

  10. Jews? Hitler? You really think you are a like a Jew under Hitler in this country man? I think comments like that are infantile and demean what those folks went through. Scale the level of your response to the reality of the present situation.
    Communist because thats essentially the Democratic platform. Get beyond the mask Mike and try not to take the big variety show going on right now too seriously.

  11. btw yes i know what socialism is and if you go to the american socialist party website, it is the same as democratic talking points. Socialism is not great contrary to what you think "sexyback"(neither is unrestrained capitalism). read jonah goldberg's liberal fascism. liberals roots come out of the progressive/fascist movement of the 20's and 30's. but i do love it when liberals name call. it shows they have no arguement. so to 24play and jonluddite get a life you cattle of the democratic party. they have been in power for two years and what have they done for us. NOT A DAMN THING!!! why we support the dems is a joke. liberterians or greens are for more friendlier than the dems, which is who i am voting for. not mccain or obama ie "the chosen one" "savior".

  12. btw jimmyboyo, do you even know what fascism is? you are like the rest of the cattle just name call and label which is okay when you guys do it. i love hypocrisy.

  13. JBY, do you know what a life is? Cause you obviously don't have one.

  14. JBY,

    LOL! I love how you say that the Democrats have done nothing in the past two(!) years (w/o a complete majority, btw). What the hell have Republicans done in the past eight? Six of which wherein they had COMPLETE control? Oh yea. Fuck shit up.

  15. The Clintons really showed the best of themselves tonight and, in appreciation for their graceful handover to Obama, i'm contributing to to help pay down here campaign debt. An awesome night for democracy and an awesome night for Democrats!!! Obama for President!!

    You yourself tossed out the knee jerk reactionary rhetoric first.

    Fascism per Musolini , a fascist, "fascism is corporatism. government by business int rests for business int rests." One should also toss into the definition a blind worship of authority, extreme religiosity, etc.

    One can only assume that you are a fascist after suffering 8 yrs of repub misrule and desiring more of the same. Unless you are going to screach you are a libertarian which is a whole other kettle of rotten fish.

    Per your misguided hate of socialism and thus america, I recomend you read some history books....focusing on

    1- the charters of the original colonies. many of which detailed the socialist communal sharing of property such as 1 iron skillet between an entire colony.

    2- the rural electrification project

    Just 2 things of many that might enlighten you to how america exists to begin with let alone has prospered due to socialism.

    For it is when america walked the fine line between capitalism and socialism, neither going gung ho for one over the other, that america has prospered and grown.


    You yourself labeled whole groups first.

  19. Hey Nick, what have the Republicans done? Well a fucking Republican majority Supreme Court in CA passed gay marriage and a Republican governor abided by the decision and is against the amendment. Hows that for starters? Stop being an ignorant name calling leftist and grow up.

  20. Fascism, as developed by Moussolini, was the unification of corporativism, national syndicalism, and statism. Of the two parties most trying to fuse business and government, one party in the USA is actively promoting this, and it ain't the Democrats.

    I would strongly urge you to check out the criticism of Jonah's book, both from the right and left, before taking anything it says to heart. Jonah is, essentially, doing the namecalling, and he's not even using the right names. Authoritarianism =/= Fascism.

    He could have written a book on authoritarianism on the American left, but it would probably have raised too many uncomfortable questions about the right's current centralization of power in the Executive branch and its sacrifice of merit and talent for blind loyalty.

  21. Didn't you pay attention to the campaign? Bill and Hillary are racist! They would do anything, including murder to win. Hillary is a monster. As a delegate to the convention, we were no allowed a true roll call vote. They took our ballots in the morning from us and we never got a count of the vote. It had to be that way since the stadium was already paid for. Some democracy.
