    Are you a democrat trying to divert our attention from your party?

    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:

    -National healthcare

    -Social insurance for the elderly, unemployed and disabled

    -Limited injunctions in union strikes

    -Federal income tax

    -Inheritance tax

    Did TR care how this 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 (“If it’s not American it’s gotta be good it!”): “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; of every family to a decent home; to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health; 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.

    Ben Franklin: "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic."

    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.

    6/11/12 npr.org:

    -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 proclaimed 'Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.'” wikipedia

    -Which party promoted the 1964 Civil Rights Act (outlawing discrimination against Blacks and women)? In the Senate, democrats 63%, Republicans 80%; in the House, Democrats 61%, Republicans 80%.

    Which party opposed the 1965 Civil Rights Act? In the Senate, democrats 27%, Republicans 6%; in the House, democrats 22%, Republicans 18%.

    -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/…

    -12/3/93 The Baltimore Sun: Jesse Jackson admits: "I hate to admit it, but I have reached a stage in my life that if I am walking down a dark street late at night and I see that the person behind me is white, I subconsciously feel relieved."

    Politics is speak approximately the federal government, the U.S., and the entire problems America is going through handy. Politics is understanding any one who is aware of any one, and so on. Politics, specially within the personnel, is complicated to provide an explanation for, seeing that you ought to be a precise sort of individual to both now not be concerned with office politics or to be concerned with office politics. A individual who traditionally is not concerned in office politics is any one who stands their flooring, does not take crap from any one, simply does their activity and is going dwelling. Someone who traditionally is concerned in office politics is one who likes gossip, entering different peoples' trade, and desires to take a look at to make it on most sensible.
