Democrats’ dream of permanent dominance is unlikely. “George W. Bush’s 51 percent re-election, with 11.5 million more votes than four years before, got his strategist Karl Rove musing about a permanent Republican majority. That didn’t happen.” Yeah, but unlike the GOP in 2004, the Democrats have the media and the current Republican Party both working on the case.

The two main parties are both pawns to Corporate Greed. What we need is Libertarian dominance.

Libertarians are (for the most part) supportive of corporations (that have been allowed by the free market). . . we just want there to be so many of them that they have to compete for the consumer dollars instead of having government regulate our money into their pockets.

In the past you have given support to minimum wage legislation, government action to end outsourcing, the “correct” form of communism, a central economic authority and central planners. You are not a libertarian . . . not even of the small l variety.

he is a clueless little gnat. You shouldn’t bother responding to him. It’s a waste of time.

Yeah, well, think of it this way…that same time would probably have been better spent with baby girl…probably more productive and more enjoyable. Each of us is given a certain amount of time in life, and there is no negotiation on that amount of time…spend it wisely and remember babies grow up entirely too fast.

Or th Republican could quit runing has been losers and get some new, charismatic and smart folk to run for office, and give the Dems a run for their money at least. I mean seriously. Bob Dole, John McCain, Mittens? Try again guys!

Like Ron Paul?

@John

But remember . . .

“Even in a free market, a few corporations would monopolize the market meaning they could make any crap product and people would be forced to buy it due to lack of alternatives.”

You're not a real Ron Paul supporter.

The Commiecrats learned how to buy votes using our own money. It’s kind of hard to beat that, unless we can find a way to shut off the freebies.

The Democrats have a bottomless well of welfare recipients, illegal aliens, union thugs, “street organizers” and political gangsters—all ready to vote the “D” list. It will be difficult to beat them.

Michael Barone must be unfamiliar with how a communist takeover works.

He also claimed Romney would win in a landslide. Idiot.

How many times did I post here before the elections to ignore the polls, that they were misleading and Obama could absolutely swoop in and win the election? No one learns. THey wake up in a whole new world everyday and proceed to make the same mistakes over and over again.

Eerily reminiscent of a t-shirt I just saw:

Liberal, noun:
A person so open minded that their brain fell out.

Therein lies the problem, we’re doomed to live under the rule of those elected by the brainless.

Pulling in 120 percent of the vote . . . how can they lose?

Said the same thing after 12 years of FDR. Nothing is forever but let’s be serious, do any of us expect any radical shift to the right after BHO is gone? Do we suddenly expect a flowering of emphasis on the individual’s rights and responsibilities? Do we expect the federal government to get smaller? The debt to be paid? Not likely, I’m afraid.

Who says the Republicans are on the case? They seem essentially the same as the Donks, with a couple of different (sort of) talking points.

No to all of the above. But OUR corrupt politicians are better than THEIR corrupt politicians. Sarc.
