Can I interrupt this current "love fest" on how smart the left is compared to the stupidity of the far right?


Please explain why this ideology is stupid.

Classical liberalism is a political ideology that values the freedom of individuals — including the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and markets — as well as limited government.

I don't think anyone was targeting ideology. They're targeting the idiots that represent it. If you haven't noticed, zero of the front runners have avoided saying incredibly unintelligible things, several times.

PS, none of them are true classical liberals. Rand Paul is the closest thing, and it's a gimmick. They all lack the social expectations of a classical liberal.

Limited government is not necessarily something that you can you can certainly tour as representative of individual freedom. In some cases it creates it, and in some cases it enables individuals to control others.

Don't know about you guys, but I was definitely targeting far right ideology as well as its adherents - naturally.

And is classical liberalism a far right ideology? Although I oppose it all the same, in my posts I mostly had nationalism and general reactionary values on my mind.

Sorry, I probably should have said something more along the lines about the perceived "love fest" and liberals being smarter.

It's because they don't say stupid things. Here, in the United States, that "love fest" is about how fucking stupid the leaders of the far right are. Not about what people think about classical liberalism. Nobody has to think about classical liberalism here anyways -- none of the leaders are classical liberals. And the only people who aren't morons on the right (despite whether or not you agree with their ideology) don't even touch the radar.

PS I also hate nationalism.

Corporations unchecked by government regulation have consistently hurt this country and don't deserve your sympathy or your political support.

Barack Obama - ‘If You’ve Got a Business — You Didn’t Build That. Somebody Else Made That Happen’

'Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go.'


"I bowled a 129. It's like- It was like the Special Olympics."

“I don’t know what the word is in Austrian.”

"The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person..."

“Our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes and I see many of them in the audience here today.”

Joe Biden - "In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."

"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, "look, here's what happened."

“If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.”

“There’s never been A day in the last four years I’ve been proud to be his Vice President. Not a single day.”

Jill Biden - “Many of my students don’t know that I’m second lady of the United States… because, you know, it’s a community college.”

Hillary Clinton - “We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

"We landed under sniper fire

"We have a lot of kids who don't know what works means. They think work is a four-letter word."

Al Gore - 'During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.'

Harry Reid - 'Seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world.'

About Obama 'light-skinned African American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one'

Nancy Pelosi - "Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs."

Bill Clinton - "African Americans watch the same news at night that ordinary Americans do."

2016 US Presidential Election Pt. III

Faux pas and out of context lines aren't the same as not understanding basic facts and logic like grain silos or women can't get pregnant from rape or being a birther. And their not understanding facts and logic is part of their platform, it's not just a slip up.

Sure buddy...keep telling yourself that. Anytime the liberals screw up it's always "out of context" or "demonizing". The democrats can do no wrong.

-57 States

-His grandfather also liberated Auschwitz. Wow, didn't know he was in the Red Army.

-Gave a whole speech honoring a Navy Corpsman. Pronounced the common military term "Corpse-Man"

Our Constitutional Law Professor President sure has a great grasp of history. Must have aced those History courses at Occidental. Ooops, his records are sealed. We'll never know. Most transparent administration in history.

Lol, a flurry of questionable lines. I love the first one, because you're trying to make Obama look stupid, but you look stupid for lacking the full sight to be able to see what that means.

Now let's talk about how Mexicans are rapists and murderers. Or how Joseph built the pyramids so he could store grains.

This conversation is unbelievable. You're the reason why people think republicans are illegitimate. I don't side with either party, and I can absolutely see that this is the case. Democrats, 99.9999% of the time, are less flat out fucking stupid.

The Bush camp is now threatening the Rubio campaign that they'll spend $20 million to discredit the guy. I'm not sure what their actual demands are in the first place...like for Rubio to drop out or something?

Shows that they still don't think Carson or Trump are credible challengers. Most interestingly, they plan to attack Rubio on his abortion stance because he's against them "even in cases of rape"...they figure plenty of Republicans disagree, but also that many of them would consider Rubio un-electable in the general because of that stance (the same thing I've argued here about Carson).
