Not sure what ind of fucked up history books you've been reading. Are you going to tell me next that all those women in Salem were really witches? Un-fucking-believable. This country is fucked.

Meade doesn't have to read--he just knows.

"making shit up" is SOP for today's modern conservative. They are so divorced from reality that lies and distortions just come naturally.

"That was not intended as a factual statement". Of course not, Senator Kyl. We know that 'factual statements' are as welcome in the GOP as sunlight is to vampires.

Bumped for Meade. Dare he give an honest and direct answer?

They were. And today they would both be conservatives dedicated to protecting the classical liberal ideals of Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Hamilton, and Reagan.

You want a current presidential candidate who is one small step away from his dream of a dictatorship of the proletariat?

He's already president.

If you're not going to address this thread, or the direct questions asked of you it, could please have the courtesy to stop posting your Intrade scores here? You are capable of starting a new thread.

Proof positive that the Republican party is racist. First they jump off the Cain Train just because he may have assaulted a couple of women and now this. This evidence holds up only under the standards laid out by our resident conservatives and should not be taking seriously by any honest, thoughtful forons.

Now it's the Repubs who are cozy with Russia. How ironic.

Putin-linked think tank drew up plan to sway 2016 U.S. election - documents
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-r ... SKBN17L2N3

"A Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 U.S. presidential election to Donald Trump and undermine voters’ faith in the American electoral system, three current and four former U.S. officials told Reuters.

They described two confidential documents from the think tank as providing the framework and rationale for what U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election. U.S. intelligence officials acquired the documents, which were prepared by the Moscow-based Russian Institute for Strategic Studies [en.riss.ru/], after the election.

The institute is run by retired senior Russian foreign intelligence officials appointed by Putin’s office."

It would be nice if the left on this forum could put away the fake news and look at the facts. There is no evidence that Russia changed a single vote in the election. To begin with there is no way for them to hack the machines as they are all local.

THINK!
