    It's just so odd seeing the Republican mating process with their constituents. They do a kind of dance to get groups of votes from different groups of people who have been told that they never have to compromise on any issue.

    Just redraw the map to keep the Sunnis and Shiites on different lines. Seriously.

    which included Right Sector and Svoboda. That is where the problem started.

    These parties were nowhere to be found during the initial round of protesting, which was all peaceful. However, the thuggery of the Syrian government against the protesters during that time is well documented. Once the government used force, then the riots started. That's when all hell broke loose and the violent thugs sitting on the sidelines suddenly took center stage. That's also when people from outside of the region start pouring in just because of the violence.

    What happens next is typical. In the middle of the chaos the propagandists will always choose the most violent/radical members and present them as leaders of the entire group. Throw in false claims of a genocide and a language law that was never a law and there's your headline: Genocide by Nazi Warriors Against Russians. The thought that there was ever a peaceful protest is scrubbed from memory.

    Ukraine was put into a difficult position by the Russian backed government crackdown on innocent protesters. Once that happens, the law goes out the window, and the violent elements thrive.

    If you want to believe that, you can. I don't, NOT for a moment

    And I don't believe Ted Cruz is Christian, and my reasoning is based on the fact that I know what the man is thinking. He may say or do Christian things but I know this man is a liar because I know him. Does that even things up?

    I've seen you here for years and you have no love for religion in politics. Cruz plays the heavy Christian card and he's being criticized for it, so now you're going to jump in with both feet and make up a claim that Obama is atheist just so you'll have something to say.

    Maybe it's a good thing that the secret war between the Saudis and the Iranians is being made public.

    Supporting the Islamist rebels against the government was a brilliant move Mr. Obama, just brilliant.

    Who told you to say that?

    "I believe America should burn in hell. If I'm elected president, I'll make the poor pay, and the rich richer"

    Heh, nice try. Obama sells a lot more books than that.

    Well lets approach this from a different angle. If a pilot or co-pilot were determined to bring the plane down, is there really anything that could stop them?

    So much for that argument

    Did you think you successfully shot down a statement claiming unemployment has dropped?

    At least he's not a moderate, because a conservative moderate just can't win, we need a real conservative to compete with a clear vision

    Win a Presidential election? Or the nomination?

    bass: If you can let the market take care of itself and get it (the government) out of the way, the economy will be just fine.

    SuperLib: The government did get out of the way and the market created a near global meltdown, leaving governments, taxpayers, and workers to foot the bill. The free market brings a lot of prosperity, but it can't have absolute authority over decisions all of the time, especially during a crisis that it created.

    bass: Does Chris Dodd and Barney Frank conjure up any memories?

    Of course, but if you're asking me if the memory of Dodd/Frank is worse than the memory of a near financial collapse, then it shows you aren't taking the risks of your position very seriously. Is it because you don't see a link between the free market coupled with new financial products potentially destroying the financial system? Maybe the system has taken care of you for so long that you've made a kind of mental block on thinking that it could ever produce anything that destructive.

    But that's the world we live in today, and as you read this there are MIT grads in financial offices on Wall Street looking to invent new financial products that could potentially start this all over again. And what's stopping them? The recent headline saying Wall Street paid out $28 billion in bonuses? heh

    Still waiting to hear about the reporting in Russia regarding working with Nazis in Donbass. Surely it must have been front page news since Nazis are coming to take over Moscow.

    This should be a good lesson for dictators who decide to fire on peaceful protesters. When you create that kind of chaos, the undesirable elements have an opportunity to mobilize and create an even bigger mess. The same thing happened in The Ukraine.

    The government did get out of the way and the market created a near global meltdown, leaving governments, taxpayers, and workers to foot the bill. The free market brings a lot of prosperity, but it can't have absolute authority over decisions all of the time, especially during a crisis that it created. There will be situations, even if they happen just once in a generation, that can cause a great deal of harm and ultimately someone needs to be able to step in. I'll give back whatever % of production that we lose just to know I won't wake up one day and see my entire financial situation ruined by people I've never met taking risks because the reward is in creating the transaction.

    strangerland: Ann Coultair only appeals to those without enough intelligence to realize that the content of what she writes is half lies, and half appealing to fear. Well, with some overlap between the two.

    They all follow the same process: 1) distort an issue, 2) predict it will destroy America, then 3) say patriots are needed to save us. Pick Fox News, Rush, Hannity, Coulter, Ingram (she literally loops this technique all day long). It's all the same, and it's very, very profitable.

    Whether you like it or not uber conservatism is in the future here in the US.

    I don't have a problem with uber conservatism existing. The problem I have is when they decide that not having enough support to win votes means they need to do things like threaten to default on our debt, which is Cruz's position. They could work just as easily to moderate their message and build a bigger base, but they want their minority to rule and they only justification for it seems to be some notion that they are patriots saving us from the destruction of America and they are not going to let something as trivial as a lack of broad support (or the democratic process) stop them.
