My, my!  The Commiecrats are really getting bold in showing their true colors, aren't they?  The next obvious Amendment attack would be to get rid of the Second Amendment. 888bravo
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Which is why a convention of states isn't a great idea.  Do not give the left an opening!
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

Their first target is talk radio. Then they will move to shut down sites like this and eventually attempt to intimidate Fox News.
 
The ultimate idea in this is that if I come on a web site and write something like, "I really like Ted Cruz." Then that would be considered what they are calling 'political speech' and would therefore be under the oversight of the FEC, with all the crap and headache that would rain down on the owner of the site. It is some real deal naziesque crap.
 
Of course none of these rules would apply to Liberal sites or to Democrats because the rules or laws never do.
 
But yes, there is no longer even a pretense of respect for the American system of government. The current administration is going full bore to establish a Cuban-ish style of communist authoritarianism.

Well since many here believe there's absolutely no difference between Republicans and Democrats, I guess it will pass the Senate 100 to 0.   :pondering:

I get and understand your point, but that is not how it works. What they do is work out between them who is going to vote which way. I was proud of how the Pubs voted on Obamacare, but that is a rare situation.
 
Normally they negotiate and know what the vote is going to be and who is going to vote which way for their political self-interest. That is what all the deals and pork is all about.
 
It is in all of their interests to work with each other, more or less, and to keep the game going. I'll vote for this if you will vote for that. Otherwise the Republicans would have no threat to extort favors.
 
You actually make a very good point in that if there was a vote like that then the gig would be up. They have to keep it respectable. But in the end, the Democrats almost always get whatever they want. No matter what.

MAC knows that. He or she isn't looking for education. MAC simply wants to poke people like me in the eye. And then wonder why he or she is treated rudely from time to time. MAC has very liberal sensibilities.

C'mon, if you're going to bash, at least be clever about it.
(Hint, there is no 99 yard line).

Or an inability to distinguish? An opinion that doesn't fit with one's view of the political spectrum is BS?
Or perhaps that's the intolerance you seek?

I think goes People on the 1 yard line think that people on the 10 yard line are playing for the other side. Well, yes, that is usually how it works.
 
Unless we are playing Rugby that is. Oh wait, no, it would be the same thing.

This is Harry Reid reverting to type....liberals are all about banning anything they consider politically incorrect, and speech heads the top of their list.  This is instructive for those who have open eyes and ears, because this US Senator is most certainly not about Freedom.

Actually JR, you're the only one here who has been out-and-out rude at least with respect to me.  And I certainly won't look to the likes of you to tell me anything about conservatism.  And if you want me to  :nometalk:, then talk to the owners, not me.

Nope, simply pointing out that your post was a sarcastic bash.
Where am I wrong?

If you see that as rude, sorry, reality bites for some people.
