it's weird, like he was clearly the last kid picked on the team for this game, but that just happened to be well timed w/ the iowa caucus

Really need Mittens to wrap this up quickly so that 10 months of two near-identical corporatists "debating" completely delegitimizes the Republicrat oligarchy.

I think today should be about positivity. Mitt, and Rick, and most of all the people of Iowa would want it that way. (Newt gets a pass.)

God Santorum is like the absolute nadir of that unique ignorance that poses as wisdom:

"I was at a debate with Howard Dean and we were asked what was the most imp quality of America and he said diversity. Diversity? Have you ever heard of e pluribus unum?....The greatness of America is people who are diverse coming together to be one," Santorum said. "If we celebrate diversity, we lay the groundwork for that conflict. We need to celebrate common values and have a president that lays out those common values."

dude Rick. the "e pluribus" part: that's a celebration of diversity. It's not "e pluribus, and fuck the pluribus now that we're unum, unum." the whole fucking point of the motto is that diversity means strength. you dumb cocksucker, you.

goole, Tuesday, 3 January 2012 16:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

But this obscures the real question, of why Paul disdains the Fed (and implicitly, why liberals do not), and the relationship between the Federal Reserve and American empire. If you go back and look at some of libertarian allies, like Fox News’s Judge Napolitano, they will answer that question for you. Napolitano hates, absolutely hates, Abraham Lincoln. He sometimes slyly refers to Lincoln as America’s first dictator. Libertarians also detest Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

What connects all three of these Presidents is one thing – big ass wars, and specifically, war financing. If you think today’s deficits are bad, well, Abraham Lincoln financed the Civil War pretty much entirely by money printing and debt creation, taking America off the gold standard.

yeah, boo fuckin hoo

Santorum on African-Americans:

"What President Obama wants to do, his economic plan is to make more people dependent upon government. To grow the government, To make sure we have more food stamps, and more SSI and more Medicaid. Four in 10 children are now on government-provided health care. It just keeps expanding," Santorum said.

He talked about how Iowa is going to get fined if more people don’t sign up for Medicaid and then said, "They're pushing harder and harder to get more and more of you dependent upon them so they can get your vote. That's what the bottom line is. So I don't want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else's money. I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money and provide for themselves and their families."

Youtube comments on that Santorum clip are mindboggling:

He didn't say the word "black," he stumbled over the wordd "people's lives." Listen very closely with your ears, not your imagination. If anything, it sounds like "balite" or "palite." Very definitely not "black."

So glad he wants to make polite peoples' lives better.

re: that atkin's piece -- characterizing liberalism as being about "intervention" is so broad as to be useless.

When Abraham Lincoln and the North decided not to allow the nation of the Confederacy--and make no mistake, it was a separate nation with separate laws and an entirely separate culture--to secede from the Union, in large part because the North had an interest in ending slavery in the South and in striking down a competing agrarian economic system, that too was intervention by a superior force against a lesser force attempting to exploit the weak and powerless. To this day, many Southerners feel that their land is being occupied by an illegitimate and invading power, and theirs a Lost Cause that will rise again.

i mean there are about a dozen things wrong with this.

goole, Tuesday, 3 January 2012 17:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

his whole deal is setting up a dumb duality: some bad state of affairs exists and liberalism in favor of "intervening" to stop it. and then ron paul doesn't like 'intervening' in anything which is why he is bad. this just isn't the right way to think about anything.

lol did the homie really just argue that the north "intervened" in the south
