Not sure what ind of fucked up history books you've been reading. Are you going to tell me next that all those women in Salem were really witches? Un-fucking-believable. This country is fucked.

Meade doesn't have to read--he just knows.

"making shit up" is SOP for today's modern conservative. They are so divorced from reality that lies and distortions just come naturally.

"That was not intended as a factual statement". Of course not, Senator Kyl. We know that 'factual statements' are as welcome in the GOP as sunlight is to vampires.

Bumped for Meade. Dare he give an honest and direct answer?

They were. And today they would both be conservatives dedicated to protecting the classical liberal ideals of Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Hamilton, and Reagan.

You want a current presidential candidate who is one small step away from his dream of a dictatorship of the proletariat?

He's already president.

If you're not going to address this thread, or the direct questions asked of you it, could please have the courtesy to stop posting your Intrade scores here? You are capable of starting a new thread.

Proof positive that the Republican party is racist. First they jump off the Cain Train just because he may have assaulted a couple of women and now this. This evidence holds up only under the standards laid out by our resident conservatives and should not be taking seriously by any honest, thoughtful forons.
