Dems reckless power grab: Glenn reacts to passage of the ‘nuclear option’

Yesterday, the Senate voted 52-48 to invoke the so-called ‘nuclear option’. The vote was largely along party lines, with all Republicans voting against the measure and all but three Democrats voting for the measure. As the Washington Post reported, a passage alters nearly 225 years of precedent. The change allows for the confirmation of executive branch nominees and most federal judiciary selections with a simple majority.

President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), and others are heralding the passage of the nuclear option as an opportunity to get things done in Washington, but if you flash back to 2005 when the Republican-controlled Senate threatened to jam through the very same thing, they were singing a very different tune. Listen to the hypocrisy below:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

While one could argue the Republicans acted equally hypocritical in this situation by voting against the option yesterday even though they supported it in 2005, it is important to note the Republicans never went ahead and rammed through the nuclear option – even though they had the votes to do so. Democrats, on the other hand, staunchly opposed the measure in 2005 and all but three voted for it yesterday. On radio this morning, Glenn found himself disgusted by the entire situation.

As Glenn sees it, the most danger of eliminating the filibuster from nominations is the checks and balances it eliminates from the system. Glenn explained that Congress has become nothing more than a speed bump, and the federal courts are what actually undo unconstitutional laws – but now the courts can be packed with President Obama and the Democrats’ picks.

“Because of this filibuster, the president now can put in anybody he wants as a federal judge. And there’s no check or balance. So he can put anybody he wants in. Why is that so important? Because how did we repeal all of the things that FDR did that were unconstitutional? We didn’t do it through congress. We did it through the court system,” Glenn said. “It hit the court and the court system said you can’t do any of this stuff and threw it all out… Forget about congress… Congress is irrelevant. They were a speed bump, and they have been flattened yesterday. And now it’s in the court systems. And now in the court systems, you’ll be lucky to have somebody who’s not a Marxist radical.”

The timing of this particular vote is also noteworthy.

“But you notice when they did it,” Glenn asked. “They did it on a Thursday so the news really comes out on a Friday – the least consumed news day next to Saturday. Friday and Saturday are the days that you don’t consume news generally. And then it goes into Sunday. The Sunday talk shows, if they even talk about it, the Sunday talk shows are not going to be consumed on Monday because Monday is the beginning of the Thanksgiving week.”

    The fundamental transformation into an Communist state which has all power and authority controlled by an Imperial President – Obama.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Why is anyone surprised by the nuclear option being triggered?

    Obama has called for the fundamental transformation of the nation since the very beginning of his first term. He and the Progressives of both sides have pushed for ever more encompassing government control and power, and to have it rest in the hands of the President.

    He has transformed most of our history, our culture, our society, and the legislative, executive and now the judiciary branches.

    Right now we are nearing the time when the only choice may be a full-scale revolution to overthrow a dictator in DC.

    I think we have so little to worry about. The things these liberals do will in the end be the end to their domination. They do these things thinking it will give them power. But in the end they don’t use the power correctly and just get voted out. But I have no doubt that Reid, Pelosi and some others on the far left. Sit around in a private room somewhere cooking up these ways to have it all their way.

    If you ask me the best way to deal with liberals is to deceive them. Infiltrate their ranks and campaigns and know what they are doing. Figure out who are the elite-the academia, the lawyers, follow the money and you will see who are the ‘conductors.”

    Calculate every move-the shutting down the government was the dumbest idea and that is why liberals played that card so well. Why would they start something with a president who never negotiates and not have exit strategy. Since most of the people have chicken brains, any pointed fingers worked wonders.

    What a sad day for America, for 226 years the Senate filibuster many appointees to hold office, with open and frank debates, and now Harry Reid takes the nuclear option to have a simple majority of 51 to ram shot these appointees through. My goodness America this is worst then most people realize, for Harry can bring this up for another vote on Supreme Court Judges, he along with this President know that 2014 they may very well lose the Senate to Republicans and rule to include in the nuclear option the Supreme Court Judges in a simple majority of 51. I know the founding father’s would be turning in their graves, for they did not want the Government of the people to be run like this. The Republicans may have thought about this in 2005 but came to conmen scents to not to used nuclear option. As the day’s grow darker for America and Lady Liberty is just trying to stay alive, to show the light for freedom and justice for all, I know in my heart that the people will have to make a stand and fight back to regain what is ours, and many a good man and women may die for this freedom being taken by one Barack Obama but fight we must do, for if not now when America.

    This is what you get for voting for a leader because of the novelty of voting for something different. The democrats knew that the people would go for that. Their plan from the beginning was to take over the government and completely change the whole operation of the government. Over the past few years a complete takeover has been set up. We, when we voted, have given them all the time they need. Now, passing the Nuclear Option is putting everything in its final phase of the operation. The criminals are the ones who voted for the people responsible for this. God help us, we are going to be in a Civil War sooner than we expected. We can thank all the dope smokers and protesters of the 70′s era. They are the ones in office now.

    Valerie Jarrett quote right before the 2012 election: “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go”. Some are speculating this was done because of the inevitable Obamacare lawsuits. I think it is much, much more. Wondering where these new nominees stand on Sharia Law?

That is why progressives in both Parties are trying to destroy them. The ‘founders’ changed history by promoting their ideas to others. Jefferson was the best in my opinion among many great ones.

    @Pomchop:disqus , While my children have been in college they have had problems with the teachers. My children consistently tell me that the majority, especially Political Science and Communications are nothing more than propaganda, as well as 85% of their other classes. My kids have to consistently walk the line in mediocre or light disagreement or opposition. Obama is one of these professors or teachers. One thing I learned in college is there is a reason they are teaching and not working in their field “Now this in no way entails all college teachers”, but the majority are failures in their field usually being kicked out or shunned for their odd or outrageous ideas. The people running companies of success already know what works, also success dictates what works. If they are unsuccessful they begin teaching “What they think is the right way to do it”. Employers know this, I know this, I am an employer. When they are fresh out of college they are placed at the bottom for a reason. They need to be retrained, they only have an idea and college represents the fact they are educable and that is all, with exception to facts that can not be changed, like math. LOL! Math maybe the only thing they can’t alter, because they sure seem to be doing it, even with history now.

    On Wednesday I sent a letter to my Senator, Carl Levin (D-MI) basing him for his continued backing of Obamacare despite the clear proof of the harm it is now causing.

    Today I sent a letter to Sen. Levin thanking him for having the courage to do the right thing and vote with the Republicans on trying to maintain checks and balances. Normally Sen. Levin and I totally disagree on about everything since he is very liberal and I am very conservative. However on this one point we totally agree, the Democrats rush to jam this measure through will undo a very important part of the checks and balances that have protected our country for 225 years from the establishment of a dictatorship. As Mr. Levin clearly put it, ending the filibuster not only steals the voice of the minority but also opens wide the ability for an abuse of power by the majority.

    In a sense, it makes the position of Majority Senate Leader a dictatorial position of power allowing him to bring to a vote at any time nomination votes and something I didn’t hear others mention, international treaty confirmations. In case most have forgotten the UN Treaty on Small Arms is still on the table and can be brought up whenever the Majority Leader wants. He now only needs a simple majority so Reid can wait until opposition votes are out of town to shove this and any other treaty through. Expect it when you least expect it in other words.

    Carl Levin is very liberal, but for a day he was a friend of all those who stand for the checks & balances system we have relied on for so long. Levin can see how this power grab can be abused, even in his own party. What a shame that D.C. is so full of power hungry men & women that they will stop at nothing to get that power. Now the President has his Congressional rubber stamp, along with his illegal executive orders. Even a liberal like Levin is seeing the danger of this foolishness. If he sees it, then everyone who loves this country should be fearing for our future because it just became a lot more shaky!

    Actually young people have a dismal voting record. The problem is with baby boomers. I think our parents who went through the Great Depression and WWII wanted to give us a better world so badly that they failed to let many of us learn how to stand on our own 2 legs. Hence we now have our generation and the next thinking that everything should come easy and those things that do not come easy should be given to us. It is only a matter of time before this nation collapses from this mentality.

    Obama has been setting up a banana republic since his first days in office and now he has a rubber stamp process in the Senate so he is virtually unopposed. Boehner has shown no ability at all to stand up to liberals, he only goes after conservatives so we have little hope. Perhaps in the end it may be a good thing because in bad times people turn back to the Lord and He is really the One we need right now.

    What we are witnessing I believe is what the Bible has predicted, the rise of the Anti-Christ. There will be many anti-Christ’s in end times but there is a single individual, the main Anti-Christ, that will mislead most people with his lies and will convince them that he will bring peace to the world. Israel will appear to be surrounded and doomed by her enemies until the Anti-Christ comes to their rescue and gives them a false hope of peace. To make all this happen the U.S. must become a non-factor which Obama is making us now.

    “Looking back on the 2012 election, young voters proved to be even more crucial to President Obama’s winning coalition than in 2008.

    Voters between the ages of 18 and 29 made up 19 percent of the electorate, up from 18 percent in 2008, and 17 percent in 2004.Moreover, a study done by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) determined that if no one under the age of 30 had voted, the electoral votes of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida,
    and therefore the Electoral College, would have swung to Romney.”

  • Shonnin Kuroji

    I am not buying into the whole religious thing here. While I respect your religious view I do not believe Obama is the anti-Christ. What we are witnessing is nothing more than simple human nature, not the end times. Which means there is hope that we can get it right eventually.

    Religiosity (particularly of the Abrahamic and specifically Christian persuasion) and morality are not mutually exclusive or inclusive. While there are moral Christians and amoral atheists, there are also good atheists and evil Christians.

    Such as it is, an overly religious interpretation from people on the political right of these events is off putting to non fundamentalist or non Christian people in the middle who, while fearful of a Communist Dictatorship, are not interested in replacing it with a religious (Christian) Theocracy. It might explain why a dis-unified Republican party is having such a hard time challenging the left and losing votes and members to independent parties like the Libertarians. At least the left is unified by their faith in the Church of Obama.

Bumper stickers, Tweets, Facebook, I.M. pop-ups, billboards and downtown / shopping mall video screens need to identify what the Nuclear Option was then and is now… It is the end of a 225-year tradition and constitutionally sound method of balancing the legislative power of a few motivated minority representatives to persuade open debate and (when reason fails) delay actions adverse to the wishes of their constituents.

    We’ll have to “unscrew” this, along with the rest of their progressive /socialist federal dictatorship architecture when the GOP gets back in the majority and the White House.

    I just wanna say as a 23yo male. This scares me. In high school i was active in an AP Government class as well as a member of knowledge bowl which for those unaware asks many history and government questions in a knowledge competition. Anyway unfortunately I lived in Washington state for many of my influential years including my senior year of 2009 which also was Obama’s first run for the oval office. I am proud to say I didn’t vote for Obama in either election. It isn’t the teaching systems. Though that does have something to do with it, I would not put the blame entirely on them just as I wouldn’t put the blame of this entirely on one party. Both parties unfortunately have become very much progressives. Which really is just a cover word for what they really are which is socialist. BIG government types. We don’t need a party to come and save the United States. What we need is to teach entrepreneurial skills in our schools and our households, we need to teach principals to children and start teaching what socialism and communism are to not just children but people in general. Unfortunately our society has gotten lazy and doesn’t research people. They vote by party either because their teacher , parent or even the person aka movie star that they look up to supports someone. Even older people vote strictly by party. What we need is to vote by morals to vote by they really stand for. This returns me to why I mentioned my background at first. in my AP government class all but myself and one classmate were influenced by my very liberal teacher. I distinctly recall several occasions of getting into great debates with my teacher which about 80% of the time ended with him pulling a power card and sending ne out of the classroom or ending the conversation. This immature way of dealing has also become our presidents as evident by this law. Not only dies this disrupt all balance of power but it is Obama playing the power card and basically sending all the nay sayers out of the room. We as a nation must rise and end this treasonous president as well as government. This is no longer one party as Glenn has mentioned. We as people must research our candidates and bote along our moral compass lines not party, not the lesser of two evils.

  • Kevin52

    Yes, their votes increased by 1% over last election but I would be interested to know how many stupid 30 & over voters voted for Obama just to give him another chance because he hadn’t finished the job? How many conservative voters 30 & over stayed home rather than vote for Romney? What really would be interesting is how many illegal votes went to Obama and to Romney? I think we all know Obama would have gotten the majority of illegal votes. When in places like Philly and Cincy you have districts voting 99-100% for Obama you know corruption is rampant. No one ever gets that percentage except in tiny districts of only a few people which is never the case in urban districts.

    When I was a kid my Mom was the township clerk in my area, responsible for all elections. It was her job to maintain integrity of the voting process which includes the voting machines and election helpers. My Mom took that job very seriously carefully selecting people she knew were honest and could carry out the duties assigned to them legally, no matter what their party affiliation was. I used to go with her to watch how all this was done. The night before an election the machines were set up. They had been inspected carefully by this point to be sure they operated properly and then sealed. The seals were not broken until just before the election began early in the morning but no one could get into the machines except my Mom. She always had someone with her to oversee what she did when it came to the machines and ballots. Even though she got trustworthy people to work on the election she would be there often, checking for tampering. I learned a lot from her how elections should be run.

    I heard in the last election of one woman in an urban area who had this responsibility for the integrity of the election process. She herself voted at least 15 times that they were sure of and if she was corrupt you can wonder how many of the election workers were also. This was not an isolated case as far as vote tampering went. After the 2008 election nothing was ever done about the Black Panthers who threatened voters in Philly. The Obama Regime is the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States and with no checks & balances, is attempting to make himself into a dictator.

    Today our elections almost need UN supervision to ensure an honest election. The trouble is you cannot trust the UN any further than you can some of the officials in this country. We are truly becoming a banana republic and now are even closer since the filibuster is gone from the Senate.

  • Kevin52

    I have to disagree with you about math not something that can be altered. When an elections’ official can vote 15 times personally for Obama yet she only has 1 vote like the rest of us, then the math gets fuzzy. When in someplace in Florida 150% of the voters turn out AND are allowed to vote, the math gets downright blurry. When Obama can win urban districts with 99-100% of the votes and these votes are counted as good ballots, then we know math can be twisted into whatever the Regime orders.

  • Kevin52

    You must be careful, only enlightened liberals like Harry Reid are allowed to call Obama a negro and never be chastised for it.

  • Kevin52

    What a shame the only source of checks and balances left is in the House run by a gutless wonder like John Boehner. The only time he shows any backbone is when he attacks true conservatives but ask him to stand up to the corruption of the Obama Regime and he caves in every single time.

    We have some very good people in the House and a few in the Senate. Unfortunately for the country none of them are in power. Right now the GOP is run by moderates and moderates always sway with the political winds. At this time the biggest wind is out of the left so look where Boehner and McConnell are turning.

  • Kevin52

    Actually the Democrats have made rule changes in the past in both branches of Congress while they were in power and later when the Republicans gained control they reverted the rules back.

He once had toured Auschwitz and since I’d never been to Europe, he decided he was the expert because he toured the supposed site that I didn’t. I don’t deny the Holocaust. It’s anecdotal, but, do you get my point? There is no substance to your post here.

    You could be right about the fraud. But I’ll come at you from an alternate angle. If Romney had achieved the 51%, or even if he got 55%, I find it frightening that 45% of the country is dumb enough to vote for a totally power-hungry compulsive liar. The problem is not with the voter manipulation that you are suggesting happened. This nation is in trouble because it consists of those who according to Romans 1:22 “Professing to be wise, they became fools.” Any halfway intelligent person knows that the basic tenet of developing knowledge is the full understanding of just how limited that person’s knowledge is. Any halfway Socialist person conversely thinks that the denial of the truth can make you a genius.

    I’m only 7 years older than you, so I saw something similar in school. It predates us by a lot, the power card that is. I once got in trouble for saying that I didn’t want to participate in any exercises dealing with evolution. My reasoning was conscientious objection. I told the teacher that I would only participate in the lessons if they also did a lesson on Creation or Intelligent Design. I was told that that was what church was for and that I’d recieve an F if I didn’t do my homework and a suspension if I didn’t come to class. I decided that I would take the F. I didn’t want to be suspended since in that case I’d have missed out on my 6 other classes, the ones where I was actually learning something. The power card works everytime, believe me. But remember, the Leftists have built their power with a house of cards. Once they start imposing their will on innocent people, the populace will strike back and the Leftists will fall harder than anybody. This is America. The truth will dance on Leftist blood, mark my word on that one.

    By the same rationale there is no substance to Danny Murray’s post saying that there are UN troops being stationed in America.

  • Anonymous

    False. Danny Murray didn’t claim that he knew something simply because he lived somewhere. There’s no similarity, no segue way. He didn’t say he knew it based on the fact that he lives in America. In fact, Danny Murray didn’t even specify whether or not he lives in America. There is overwhelming documentation of truck convoys with UN insignia bringing goods to a place called Camp Grayling in Michigan. What Glen is forgetting is that the UN wouldn’t even operate under an Air Force Base anyway. The personnel of course would be members of the U.S. Air Force.
    All things being said, Danny said something that was the truth, period. It needs no other qualification. He doesn’t know the truth because he lives in America, he knows it because he uses his brain.
    So no, by YOUR rationale Danny is wrong, not by mine.

    Part of the plan for keeping the majority of the vote is perpetuating poverty. Keeping an impoverished people on the dole keeps those people beholding to the party that holds the purse strings and promotes themselves as the “friends” and “saviors” of the poor. The Democrats are anything but “friends” to these people. They have every intention of keeping those poor people enslaved with a dependence on big government. Part of this plan involves keeping those people ignorant and indoctrinating them through the education system. Common core is part of this plan. It all dovetails with the recent rule changes in the senate. The poor people and the fanatical misguided left all believe that these changes are for the betterment of government. I am afraid we have come too close to a time when drastic action may be necessary to retain a representative republic as the forefathers envisioned it.

  • Anonymous

    It’s all true what you’re saying but consider this. Not just half the dependents of the dole voted for Obama, but also half the rich people, half the Jews voted for him even though he is an enemy of their state. Half the Christians voted for him. Half of everyone from every walk of life. Half the lazy, half the hard-working. It doesn’t matter what state you live in or where you loiter about with your friends. Socialism is a disease of the political mind. Those who embrace it won’t ever find fault in it. You have to completely renounce reality to embrace it. It’s not as simple as the people getting free stuff voting for this guy. It’s also those who aren’t getting anything from the government not seeing that the government will do nothing but take from them in order to satisfy the needs of those who can’t meet them on their own.

    The democrats have literally lost ANY inhibitions against doing things that they know are seen as power grabs. If the American people had any brains they would be joining campaigns to replace these wastes of good carbon. They no longer even seem to care that the vast majority of the American people are against everything they have done and are doing.

    This, combined with Obama’s illegal and cynical executive order moving the employer mandate to a month after the election clearly demonstrates the leftist commitment to a nanny state in which the people are subject to the government, instead of the other way around.

    I don’t think that Obama understands just how much these businesses are against this. They are not going to wait until it’s convenient for Obama to attempt to steal an election. Most businesses will have already told their employees that they will need to find other options. Of course, if you’re Obama and you worship yourself as a god, you would probably believe that just because you order business owners to screw over their employees and hide the effects of Obamacare so its less likely that the democrats will lose the election.

    I do not think McConnell is the toughest guy we need when we do get the chance to stick it to dirty Harry, We should do all we can to roll back the last two decades of damage and at the first hint we may lose the Senate back find a procedural change to return to the 60 threshold and make it unchangeable while we can do it with just 51, Also We need to get the vote out next year like never before our very survival depends on it, find three people who have never voted and get them to the polls and no way we do not capture the Senate. Lastly when we do take control we need to do all we can to dismantle the democrat party, do the most lasting damage possible, and then maybe we can save the State of the Union. But we must fight with the ferocity of a Lion who has not eaten in months. Nov. 14 cannot get here quick enough.

    I do not think McConnell is the toughest guy we need when we do get the chance to stick it to dirty Harry, We should do all we can to roll back the last two decades of damage and at the first hint we may lose the Senate back find a procedural change to return to the 60 threshold and make it unchangeable while we can do it with just 51, Also We need to get the vote out next year like never before our very survival depends on it, find three people who have never voted and get them to the polls and no way we do not capture the Senate. Lastly when we do take control we need to do all we can to dismantle the democrat party, do the most lasting damage possible, and then maybe we can save the State of the Union. But we must fight with the ferocity of a Lion who has not eaten in months. Nov. 14 cannot get here quick enough. Oh one other thing offer Manchin a chair for when we take over for him to switch party’s like old Zell the party has left him and maybe one other Dem, go after them hard they are ready to leave and have all the more incentive to leave now knowing what is coming.

    Obama got more votes because he CHEATED – IRS, fake unemployment numbers, voter turnout exceeded 100% in may districts including swing states (in fact, in OHIO a woman was arrested because she was dumb enough to brag on national TV that she had vote for Obama 6 times – and she was a poll worker)!

    I fear the same my friend, the low news voters have no idea the implications dirty Harry has set in motion, but the high news voters and traditionalist are not taking this lightly, I fear much worse than even the re-election of O’ or the debaclecare, This has the potential to bring militias to the streets.

    Everyone forgets that Obama does not have a law license. It was in the process of being revoked by the state for lying on his application when he found out and gave his law license up, but still taught Constitutional Law!

    O’ has taken the stance we are a nation of vanity and not of substance and for his voters part this is true, but his biggest mistake has the potential to undo this Nation, He and Harry knew the DC court would be the one’s ruling on debaclecare and that is the reason for this, along with immigration reform spit in the eye of all that oppose amnesty. For the first time in his life he is going to see there are many Patriots who have remained silent during all of this that have finally had that light straw fall with the gently wind upon their backs and now he will see why and how we became who we are and what we are capable of. Disaster is on the horizon like never before

    I had to do the same thing each time that I was over the elections as your mother did. I had many years of doing it. We were honest and no fraud. I was very protective over everything. After words I had to take the votes to a certain place and make sure my paperwork with numbers came out the same as theres did. I like doing it and we had voter I.D.

    Now when the Republicans ever gain control of the Senate again there will be no reason to allow the minority to block reversal of all of Obama’s regulations. The Republicans can do away with entire courts to reverse liberal control of the courts. The Democrats have set the standard for future Congresses. The battle begins!

    I’ve never listened to Alex Jones show one time ever. Never will either. You are either smart enough to realize the truth when it’s staring right at you, or you’re not. You’ve demonstrated that you are not. You are a hopeless case.

    Why would you be anonymous? It would be cowardly. You have a good point here. No matter who invokes the nuclear option, whichever party, it’s a dumb idea. Say the political winds shift. If the Republicans somehow win the senate in 2014 and retain the house as well, Obama won’t be able to get ANYthing passed. He could even serve up a halfway conservative piece of legislation and it’ll get put down out of spite.
    I am a confused person politically. I voted for Kerry in 2004 mostly because my buddy lost his arm from an IED in Iraq. Then I didn’t vote in 2008 because I had conservative ideas but didn’t want to vote against the first black president. I voted for Romney last year because I hate Communism period. But for 2016, all you have to choose from are Communists (a.k.a Democrats) and their enablers (a.k.a. Republicans). I don’t want either one. They both act the same exact way when they want something. It’s sick.

    Hmmm, no mention of how the Republicans have been abusing the filibuster over the last five years. That’s the Beck we all know as a charlatan: telling half the story to gullible know-nothings who don’t questions him.

  • Guest

    Honestly, you’re completely clueless about who, or what, has taken “our” country away. Beck won’t tell you but I will: the corporate elite are in control no matter which Party is in power. The filibuster, clueless one, has NOTHING to do with the Constitution.

    By law, the circuit court needs 11 judges. No one will ever accuse you of having a clue. Time will come when conservatives will “cram” the courts with Borks. If anyone’s days are numbered, it’s McConnell’s.

    Beck’s Morning Zoo radio show should be called the three stooges: stooges for the Republicans Beck pretends to hate, stooges for the corporations that control the purse strings of the Republican Party and stooges for the elites pulling the strings behind the scenes. Beck is a faux populist and corporate shill.

  • landofaahs

    The best proof of democrat racism is the fact that they are unwilling to hold Obama to the same standards that they would a white person. Especially a conservative white person. It’s akin to saying “we don’t expect anything but lying, thieving, corruption and incompetency from a black person”.

    “The bigotry and extremism the Tea Party Right is going to boil over as we head towards what will be a truly pivotal midterm election next year. We can’t let the narrow-minded reactionaries who are now dominating the Republican Party take our country backwards.”

    Get used to that refrain: we will not allow the Beck-misinformed haters take the country backward. Better to have Beck’s tears lead to dehydration than to allow Mr. Beck to inspire more ill-informed, REACTIONARY pols to lead to even greater disparities in wealth and participation.

    Narrow minded being anyone who disagrees with you because you and your way are the only and perfect one, is that right? It’s funny how anyone who disagrees with liberals automatically becomes stupid, narrow minded, bigoted, extreme, uneducated, and the list goes on. Liberals are NEVER required to even listen to another point of view and then even just agree to disagree. But let anyone disagree with a liberal and the name calling just flourishes. Anyone see a double-standard here? I mean anyone other than liberals… You couldn’t see a double standard that was in your favor if your life depended on it.

    Unfortunately Mr./Ms. Guest liberal, you’re probably right. You and everyone like you never paid attention in history classes so you can’t see the “forward progress” toward the cliff of communism you are marching this country toward. Those that love the America created by the founders may not be able to stop you but we certainly won’t help you. And when the shift happens in this country and your last vestige of freedom is removed we certainly won’t help you to survive in the embattled mess that you will have created either. “I told you so” will be a waste of time and breath so letting you suffer in the mess you created will be the most we’ll have time for as we care for those we love. Keep taking us forward and I REALLY hope you personally get to enjoy the mess that is coming.
