In 2008 who would have rather seen nominated by the GOP for president & VP?
Rather than McCain & Palin. Or was it almost a given that Obama. was going to get elected on an anti-Bush/Cheney ticket due to Iraq & the economy freefall. At least this time around I don't see any Obama/Biden signs in my ultra liberal community. Hopefully that's a good sign for the future? although I don't see many Romney/Ryan signs either!

Anyone but a democrat.
How dems treat the troops: http://mvpproject.org/in-the-news/va-mil… 92% drop in absentee-ballot requests by military personnel in Virginia is raising concerns that the Pentagon is failing to carry out a federal voting law. It’s happening across the nation.
Democrats embrace pres. Teddy Roosevelt’s (1901-09) "change" for America:
-Social insurance for the elderly, unemployed and disabled
-Limited injunctions in union strikes
-Federal income tax
TR didn't care how "change" would impact the Constitution: “This, I know, implies a policy of a far more active governmental interference with social and economic conditions in this country than we have yet had, but I think we have got to face the fact that such an increase in governmental control is now necessary.”
Dem. pres. Wilson's (1913-1918) "change": “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first multiculturalist: “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way: “Every nation is exceptional in its own way.”
A generation later dem. pres. FDR articulated “change” (before Congress, 1/11/44):
-“We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights...”
-The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
-The right of every family to a decent home
-The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
-The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.
LBJ’s “change,” The Great Society, became the largest redistribution of wealth program in history. But Obama is “out-changing” them all.
It is only because of the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (none existed a generation ago!) that we are learning the truth about how successful the democrat party has been with their “Change”:
-2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61% of liberals have a positive view of socialism.
-6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71% of democrats favor re-distributing wealth.
-9/6-9/2012 http://www.gallup.com/poll/157481/majori… Those who believe government should have more control over our lives: Republicans 15%; Independents, 29%; Democrats 67%.
-Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare and socialist states.
pbs.org: “The Klan quickly became a terrorist organization in service of the Democratic Party and white supremacy. Between 1869 and 1871 its goal was to destroy Congressional Reconstruction by murdering blacks -- and some whites -- who were either active in Republican politics or educating black children.”
pbs.org: After [democrat] Wilson was elected in 1912 blacks were segregated or dismissed from federal positions.
-100 members of Congress from the South (96 Democrats and 4 Republicans), present a "Declaration of Constitutional Principles" that criticized the Supreme Court in its Brown v. Board of Education decision for desegregating schools and protested civil rights initiatives.
-“During this period, they [KKK] often forged alliances with Southern police departments, as in Birmingham, Alabama; or with governor's offices, as with George Wallace [democrat] of Alabama who, on his inauguration as governor of Alabama on January 14, 1963, proclaimed 'Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.'” wikipedia

-For years Dem. Senator Robert Byrd was the "Grand Dragon" of the entire Mid-Atlantic states. (6/19/05 Washington Post). He filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He was the longest-serving senator in history and democrats chose him as their Senate leader many times. He died in-office two years ago: “VP Biden said today that with the passing of Sen. Robert Byrd the Senate lost a legend and he lost a dear friend and mentor.” 6/28/10 ABC News
-The New Yorker: Bill Clinton said: “A few years ago, this guy [Obama] would have been carrying our bags.’” http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2012/…

Sense the Republican base, has been taken completely over, by what we use to call, old southern Democrats, & Dixiecrats... Those like Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, Grover Norquist... Will do everything in their power, to keep the right, as radical, as they can... The more moderate Republican candidates, for President, early this year... Fell by the way side, pretty early... Its actually pretty strange, how so many Americans, don't realize, the party's, have traded places... The Republican party, the party of Lincoln... The guy created for starting, the Republican party... The guy credited, for freeing the slaves... Vertically all of the southern states, are now Republican... Strange, how what is now, the radical right, pro slavery, & or, work for slave labor, or right to work states... Doing all they can, to kill democracy, or your voice, or vote... Hides this fact, so well... Makes you wounded, what Lincoln, would think of his party,,, now...

with the whipping up of class warfare and anti-white race cards to incite violence,you probably will not see that many Romney/Ryan stickers for fear of vehicle damage or bodily harm from uneducated ignorant easily stirred Obama mites! In 2008,it should have been someone like Pat Buchanan and Newt!

Romney and Ryan represent the same team who gave us 2000 to 2008 ... in fact they are the scrapings from the bottom of the GOP barrel ... !
