    I have to say this again:
    We need a strong viable Socialist party to the left of the Democratic party. The republican party should be outlawed.

    And all pay checks should be turned in to your local Social Security Office for re-distribution. Kind of like they are now.

    Well, Klondike Barbie says she wants to leave the G.O.P. to start her own “Independence” Party.

    The TEA “Party” is already tearing the Republicans apart…

    Go to it, Barbie, and split the G.O.P. even further!

    I’ve only read the part of the immigration bill that concerns the northern border. More hacking away at the Fourth Amendment. That does not mean that I’m not disappointed with Boehner taking this route to prevent action on this bill. If other parts are as flawed as the aforementioned section, he should present it for a vote or modify it and then send in back to the Senate. Also, since the bill is 1,198 pages long, he might try and talk the House members into reading it before acting on it.

    As a conservative American I will admit that the republican party has been lacking for some years now in adequately representing conservative views. But you libby loo’s out there who call for “outlawing” the party and moving our government even further to the left – Be carefull for what you wish! You just might get what you have asked , see ya in the bread line!

    Speaking from the left, I think the idea that the Republican Party should be outlawed is loony. I’m not sure that Mr. Kent is being serious, but if he is, I completely disagree.

    What I find amazing is this stuff has been going on long before this by both parties, and now its just a Republican problem??

    Ruff, release Dr. C and Ahab. GoComics PRO Member said, 10 months ago

    @lonecat

    Agreed. But how about a multiparty system? Say 3 conservative, ranging from extreme to moderate, and 3 democrat with a similar range. Works pretty well in some places. Nothing gets done without a coalition for a majority, but they get together and work things out.

    I honestly thought filibusters were illegal for years. It was seldom used, like maybe once or twice a year, tops.
    This is the only time there has been used almost every week. I can give a citation, but don’t want to take the time with it right now.

    “We are overpopulated to the point that we’ll soon see wars fought for those remaining resources…”

    Yeah sure, the five armies will soon meet at the Lonely Mountain, errr… I mean Har Megiddo, to decide the fate of Middle Earth.

    Population growth is slowing & is expected to become negative. Forecasts are suggesting we’ll peak at 9 billion people around 2070. We’re at 7 billion today. The quickest way to stop population growth is to educate girls.

    We’ve been fighting for resources for thousands of years. We’re going to get better at conserving & recycling what we have. Renewable energy is no longer Science Fiction. The chance of terrorists using nukes is growing, but Mutual Assured Destruction is now a remote possibility.

    I’m an optimist. We’ve muddled through some pretty bad times without a clue.

    “by 2070…” Breaking news guy, we do not have that long, take an unbiased informed look at the extinction events in motion.

    A small enclave may be saved, but not in the millions.
    Billions and billions are going to die, probably over 90% of the humans on earth.
    .
    Blame is no longer meaningful in the least.

    I agree outlawing the party is a bad idea, while I support many more left wing ideas, ideological diversity in a competitive debate prone environment is about the best way to create privacy.

    Unfortunately modern politics tends to avoid debate and focus more so on simply shouting slogans, never mind that both parties pretty much next to eachother on the spectrum

    You can but they would never get very far. No other party outside of the two that the Plutocrats control.

    So far the Conloony’s have been moving us so far right we need to move far left just to get toward the middle.

    The Republicans were against the filibuster till they got to use it. The problem is that the filibuster have been made too easy to do and it has been used way too much.
