    In his first term, President Obama deported more Hispanics than any other president. Consequently, in the ‘12 election, he only got 75% of the Hispanic vote. But I’m sure Hispanics won’t vote for him for a third term.

    And illiterate posters, evidently.
    WHAT illegal voters? Try again: the whole idea of “voter fraud” simply has no evidence. It is not a problem. It is TRIVIAL.
    It is, however, a fake story ginned up by the conservatives and their lapdog media to make it harder for CITIZENS to vote.

    If you really care about voter fraud, do something about voting machines that can be easily tampered with. It’s not about who votes, it’s about who counts the votes.

    I self-deported from ever voting for a Republican again.

    Last year, two very good friends of mine got US citizenship and they will go out and vote and I’m delighted for them.

    .
    How do you know this? Did the anointed tell you this after giving you your Kool-Aid? Because lord, that gets old the stereotyping you left wing free from thinking crowd repeat what you are told to repeat ad nauseum…
    .
    I’m hispanic and have voted Republican though ideologically I’m more libertarian because the government is not my god and I prefer to do my own thinking.
    .
    Try thinking for yourself. While it may hurt at first, it quite liberating. Though I have no idea what the Kool Aid withdrawal would be like…

    It’s good to see the elephant voting for Democrats.

    @echoraven

    Because I actually heard one of the cons on this forum say that ALL hispanics support illegal immigration…and it wasn’t the only time

    And look who’s talking. You accuse me of not thinking for myself while spouting THE most tired rightiwing bullet-point out there, “Obama is the ‘anointed one.’”

    Nobody says that but rightwingers.

    In my experience there are two types of Liberatarians.


    The first is the real deal, the folks who have genuinely bought into the Libertarian philosophy, and undertand it. There’s at least one of these folks here on this forum, and I consider another one an online friend. ( We try to avoid discussing politics )


    But lately, I’ve been coming across another type of ( self-proclaimed ) Libertarian. These are people whose total knowledge of true Libertarianism can be summed up an a matchbook cover, who joined the movemen for three reasons.

    1. It’s Chic

    2. It’s Trendy

    3. It’s ‘In’


    The irony is that back in the late 80’s,
    ’Christian ’Conservatism and Libertarianism were diameterically opposed to one another. One recalls Barry Goldwater;s famous remark. “Every good Christian ought to kick Jerry Falwell right in the @$$.”

    Universal solutions to any and all problems:
    1. Blame the object of your own ignorant prejudice.
    2. PASS A LAW!
    3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 – endlessly.


    Personal satisfaction guaranteed.

    Newsweek did. Hardly right-wing. As usual, your statement is false.

    Ever since I started asking the question, “Who, or what, is a ‘Ron Paul’”, I’ve been hearing about “Libertarian/ism”, and its “philosophy”.


    You may certainly correct me, if I be wrong – or regard me as being merely a “troll”, if you wish. But, insofar as present circumstances be concerned, it appears that “Libertarian Philosophy” can be summed up rather simply:
    1. I’ve got mine. I keep mine for me.
    2. You don’t have . . . whatever. Screw you!


    The Preamble to the Constitution says, among other things, ". . . to promote the general
    Welfare . . . words I have never found in a “Libertarian” statement yet; since it appears that the very notion of “general Welfare” is a total anathema to the “Libertarian” notions of “freedom”, which are, as I see it, nothing more than total selfishness, and complete disregard for others. Indeed the phrase seems to be, more often than not, regarded as “Socialist/Communist/Pinko/etc.,” since it posits something other than the “I, ME, MINE, MYSELF”, aspects of “Libertarianism” as it is propounded today


    And, are you claiming Barry Goldwater to be a “Libertarian”? “Conservative”? Certainly – right up to and through being a racist war-monger! “Christian”? Well, that takes us off track, into Theology, where we need not go. As memory serves, he did go to the Episcopalian Church, when he went at all. “Libertarian”? Perhaps. He certainly exhibited all the “I, ME, MINE, MYSELF” qualities of “Libertarianism” – as the people of Arizona knew full well – but, in the end, his notions of “liberty, freedom, and the general Welfare” were much closer to those of today’s vocal and vociferous Right-wingnut posters on this blog.


    So, the final question might be: What, if anything, is the REAL difference between “Christian Conservatism” and “Libertarianism” anyway?
