Uphold the Constitution

I'm upset about liberalism creeping across America.

Lenin said the following:

• "The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency." (Barack Obama is doing a good job of that.)

• "The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses." (The media are liberal and biased — that's why Fox News is hated so much; they offer a different view.)

• "The goal of socialism is communism." (Liberalism is socialism.)

I see America following Lenin's ideals. Just look at the public school system — children are taught in groups; competition is discouraged; no one fails. This is liberalism at its best. Congress and Obama think people who disagree with their liberal agenda are right-wing crazies. I think they want our names and addresses sent to Washington. Gun control will be next.

The government is controlling every second of our lives. Government officials believe they know better than we how to "regulate" our daily activity and lifestyle. As long as we let them, liberals will continue to drag the nation down the road to socialism.

Liberalism equals socialism equals communism.

I do not want to live in a socialistic country. Elected officials need to remember that they are working for the people who voted them into office. They are mandated to uphold the Constitution and keep the laws this country was founded on. People need to remind them of that.

wow! Marxism is alive and

wow! Marxism is alive and well here in Maine!
And attacking a person for his views is a liberal defense tactic..They can't attack you on the issues so they go for the throat!
I know, I have been the brunt of liberal attacks for years ...When I disagree with Republicans they send me info or try to debate the issue...Liberals get nasty (I know, I have had to change my phone number four times in the last few years in order to get some sleep!)
name calling seems to be their way of conducting a debate...

The Founding Fathers

The Founding Fathers recognized that an individual could not be trusted with all of the power, nor could it be entrusted to a proportionally small percentage of the people in any form and in their wisdom the power was given to The People, all American Citizens. The federal government was supposed to be comprised of "part-time"legislators. We have a government that has devolved into invading every private moment and activity, with full-time "Professional Politicians" who are out of touch with the people who they think must be treated as mindless, little children or animals incapable of caring for themselves and families or make the decisions that are right for their own family. These are exactly the things that lead to the signing of the Declaration of Independence Yes Mary Jane you are absolutely correct in your analysis.
If we could only return to common sense...

I don't associate myself

I don't associate myself with either party in particular-however I must say that this chick makes it sound like 'liberalism' is a bad thing. Most Liberals that I have spoken with are free-thinkers, goal-oriented, achievers (at best), and definitely worked hard for what they have in life. I think for most people we have to wonder why/how this 'socialism' word even exists. Another scare tacticISM from republicISM...

Are you happy now Century21ISM?

"Liberalism is a bad thing. It takes from those have worked hard to earn and gives to those that won't get off thier ass to make thier lives better"

Taking from those who work hard, and giving to those who don't actually sounds like capitalism, where CEO's are paid 500 times more than the folks who actually produce.

You never know about someone

You never know about someone until you've walked a foot in their shoes...

NOT everyone is a sore loser. Its too bad that many people judge,generalize, or put everyone that NEEDS help in the same category. I agree that there must be some that do take advantage of the system-however NOT all stories are the same. THAT woman who has a hard time getting out of bed may be suffering from severe PTSD (which includes severe anxiety/obsessive compulsiveness), depression, mental illness, or physical ailments... THAT neighbor that won't get a job just may be a person that has had trauma in their life and does have a hard time being 'told what to do'... or maybe an injury that they have been in a fight for their life to get their doctors bill paid-but Maine Doctors suck sooo much that they even 'generlize' and judge instead of helping that person get answers to LIVE and better life... Or even the person who has had 3 kids because they made mistakes like humans do but can't bear the thought of abortion or giving their flesh and blood away... so maybe they can get the help they need to have a better life for their children and go to school. The alcoholic that can't stay out of the liquor store-its a disease! It's called alcoholism. So for those select few cases that people like to generalize-please understand they need help and you may need it one day too. I don't mind 'paying out' to people who may need my help to live a decent life, have shelter, have food for themselves. People really think that this is what they want? To be relying on you? On the system? I can assure you that this only adds to their burden.

In all honesty-I couldn't see the U.S. as a 'socialism' nation. Everybody is just too damn greedy.

It is true that we have an

It is true that we have an engorged welfare state that sucks the life out of the working person. In an effort to never exclude those in true need, we give to anyone who can act like they have a need. Dropped out of H.S., got pregnant, never had a job for more then a week, and have a drug prob.? Heres everything you need for the rest of your life without taking resposibilty for yourself because you deserve it. We'll just make the veterans, elderly, and disabled children wait in line and jump through hoops. And God help the working person who gets injured and needs some short term assistance. Those less worthy souls (veterans, elderly, children, injured workers) are helped on paper, but rarely in real life and rarely to the extent of those honerable people who just made a few mistakes and deserve to be carried for for the rest of their lives.

Give a man a fish, you'll feed him for the day. Teach a man to fish, and you'll feed him for a lifetime.

Wackoism taken to its logical conclusion "Liberalism equals socialism equals communism". Words mean nothing. Radically different things are the same things. An anti-communist uses a failed communist as authority for her point of view. If we needed anymore proof of the incapacity of the right to think this surely is it. Jon Albrecht Dixfield

Actually what is being

Actually what is being implemented now is a bastardization of socialism. Socialism envisions a massive, united working class. What is being marketed now is an entitled class living in a parasitic manner, off the shrinking working class. True Marxist ideals look great on paper. This doesn't even impress me in the headlines designed to garner applause.

Tron you are right but in Gil's eyes its better to kill anyone who disagrees with the history in his eyes. Native Americans... no problem label them as the ultimate evil, Irish... always problem causers they have no right to detest being shot to death or denied their civil rights for ages, and children... well, we need to purge the name of Robert Owen to prevent anyone from forming working unions to prevent young children from working in factories. Just performed a check on Bobby Sands and at the same time listening to Steve Earle's Dixieland.

Sorry Mary Jane - this is a center left country moving to left as speak as more and more people realize to total and complete incompetence of Republican governance. See 2000 - 2008 for all the examples you could ever want of Republican fail.

And your hypocrisy is breathtaking: "They are mandated to uphold the Constitution and keep the laws this country was founded on." Where were you when the Bush thugs were violating the Constitution on a daily basis and breaking innumerable laws with impunity? Is your concern really the fact that our president is A BLACK MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Deal with it.

The Army is being politically correct and allowing terrorists to come and go as they please within the ranks of our military!!!

"Elected officials need to remember that they are working for the people who voted them into office." That's right! And the dems were voted in by solid majorities. And did you hear? Obama is going to unionize ACORN and have them go door to door to collect all the guns from white people and give them to the illegals!
