Democrats Go After Ben Carson After He Wins Straw Poll
« on: August 26, 2014, 05:17:53 AM »
"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."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Unfortunately true conservatives often waste inordinate amounts of time, attention, on the impossible.

Carson will not win the nomination. His faux run will be like Buchanan's and Palin's to support his media career.

After the shine wore off, Palin even lost her regular gig on Fox, because she talks like a teenager.

Unlike those sainted Mainstream Republicans who don't care a whit about the media or their careers.  :silly:

Principles are virtual Kryptonite to your GOP whores. I'd rather be governed by a bunch of innocent and callow teenagers than by the unprincipled, self-promoting, crapulent dickheads who dominate the Republican Party in Washington. As a group, they are as appealing as a pile of dirty washcloths. And nearly as clean.

Democrats succeed by telling people comfortable lies that are intended to snare them in the traps of their own vices, largely by convincing the masses that vice is virtue. Republicans cannot succeed by allowing the victims of Progressivism to pretend that they are not complicit in their own debauchery.

Tell the truth. And be prepared to defend it. Courage and honor are two commodities in short supply these days. America's greatest problem today is that the demand for them hardly exceeds the supply.
We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

"crapulent dickheads"?

I love it - I may steal that! 

(Note:  my husband is already pretty familiar with the term "dickhead" - but adding "crapulent" takes it up to a whole 'nother level.   :chairbang: )

I love weaving a colorful tapestry of dirty words when I'm angry!  My mother was a master at it!  I'm always looking to incorporate new words, but if I would call him something in Italian, he would go, "whut?"

Best if I stick to my native hillbilly tongue!   :smokin:
