As I have said time and again, greek,....you do have a way with words.
I hope you are not being serious. In the conflict between the British and the American Colonies...the British/Loyalists were the Conservatives. The Colonies/Founding Fathers were the Liberals.
Pfft, there shouldn't be one person that should feel the need to. After all, we are all created equal by our Creator are we not?
The Founding Fathers were intelligent Liberals that got lucky in many ways. Do you realize just how easily our history books could have a small chapter on the American Rebellion that would end with Washington being hung along with the other Founding Fathers?
Many estimates have it that 20% of the population in the colonies at the time were conservative Loyalists to the crown. Thank goodness for liberal Revolutionaries right?
Said with the grace of a brick falling into mud.
"Are you saying the founding fathers erred???"
In that one branch of Govt can ignore another branch an error...then yes.
"In forming a successful government that has been the envy...."
Blab balb blab...yes ys, the world loves out for of govt but that doesn't mean it's perfect by any means.
"Where do you liberals come up with this nonsense???"
Not a liberal.
"Go tell the war veterans..."
The sacrifice of veterans does not make the form of govt they fight for any better or worse. There were many veteranbs of the SS that fought just as hard for their govt but that didn't make it more perfect.
"that you do not appreciate"
Of course I appreciate it. I'm just telling the fact that there are problems with it.
"YOU DO NOT DESERVE FREEDOM since you do not VALUE IT"
One..I do value it. Second, valuing it doesn't mean one doesn't deserve it. Merely being a citizen means you deserve it.
"Whose fault is it when.."
The fault lies with the Founding Fathers that set such a system up.
The fault lies with the Dems for not approving the reasonable ones...if any of those proposals are reasonable that is.
The fault lies with the Republicans for failing to get their message out to the masses and not just their small base.
So far, the Judical Branch and the Legislative Branch of our govt has given our President the leeway to do what he has done.
Now what it really at fault here? The President or our Govt as a whole?
Lol..if their is ever a "King Barry" it will be due to the incompetent behavior in Congress.
If the Republicans really think he is breaking the law then they need to do something about it..something real. Why sue the man when you have the power to impeach him? But they are too cowardly to do that or more likely they want their person to have that kind of power when they are the President.
"A liberal commentator said that you can not impeach someone for simply being incompetent. That is why they are suing him."
So, basically put...they don't like him and they are getting back at him.
Maybe it is an election year: The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal. Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.
Now all of a sudden Obama thinks our veterans deserve better? Why now and not five years ago?
A liberal commentator said that you can not impeach someone for simply being incompetent. That is why they are suing him.
" He Pelosi and Reid and the liberals have exposed this country to potential destructive forces !"
This is why most moderates don't take certain people seriously. In a nut shell you pretty much said if they aren't conservative, they are ruining the nation.
You can't ignore the fact that the Republicans in Congress have also failed horribly. I mean come on...sue the President?? If they feel he did something impeachable, then they need to fulfill their sworn oaths and do what the Constitution says they should do. What's stopping them from doing what they swore to protect?
There are a number of Republican Bills sent from the House to the Senate sitting on Harry’s desk. Harry will not let them come to a vote. I think one could guess that he is concerned that there is actually enough Bi-Partisan support for some of those bills that they could actually pass the Senate. He is keeping those bills from an up or down vote simply to make it look like nothing is happening in the House.
So mod, that is why we need to elect more republicans and get rid of Reid and his self-inflicted grid lock.

I would certainly like to make sure an amnesty provision in NOT included in any immigration bill. I would like a true investigation as to why the ACA still has left 40 million people uninsured after all the hoopla has died down and why the magic number was eight million signups. I would like a jobs bill passed that in not simply a union subsidy. I would like a highway bill that actually is about repairing highways. I would stop giving money to Hamas. I would start funding NASA again. I would stop funding illegal immigration. I would like a senate leader that would bring bills to the floor of the senate for a vote. That is enough for a start.
What do you want "done"beright?
"If the Republicans get control of the senate and maintain the house, maybe we can get something done."
Doubtful..the Dems will do to them what they've been doing all this time..obstruction. Even if something would get past Congress, Obama would probably veto it and that would be the end of it.
If the Republicans get control of the senate and maintain the house, maybe we can get something done. Republicans are more likely to cross the aisle and work with Democrats than the other way around. The Democrats as they are lead now have no compromise in their agenda. Harry Reid is holding up votes in the Senate strictly based on Partisan shenanigans.
Top GOP leaders got no notice of the $3.7 billion emergency request for emergency border immigratoin. The administration sent contradictory messages about what it wanted to deal with the border crisis. And as the proposal drew fierce criticism, the White House made few overtures to lawmakers in either party to rally support.
House and Senate lawmakers in both parties plus several senior congressional aides said this past week that the handling of the proposal by Obama and the White House is emblematic of the administration's rocky relationship with Congress: an ad hoc approach that shuns appeals to opponents and doesn't reward allies.
Well, knowledge of the Constitution kind of goes with knowing the branches of government. I would hope most Americans would have some idea about what the Constitution is and how our current laws have been shaped by it and court rulings since then.
There is nothing wrong with being liberal, democrat or a liberal democrat. Anymore than being a conservative, republican or a conservative republican is right.
They all serve a purpose in our society.
