It’s terrible. You may be too young to remember the last time we had a ‘Rat in the WH, a 2-1 ‘Rat majority in the House, and a filibuster-proof ‘Rat majority in the Senate, but it was an unmitigated disaster that we are still paying for today. When was that? It was after the ‘64 election and the “true conservative” Barry Goldwater debacle. That gave us LBJ’s “Great Society”. What did that lead to? Well, among other things, years of race riots, the “War On Poverty” boondoggle, and a debt taxpayers today are still saddled with. Are you up for another round of that? Here’s a clue: the country probably won’t survive it.

It didn’t end so well for LBJ. He did such a screw up job, he even pulled the plug on himself for running for reelection. LBJ - the Dem Dems don’t like to talk about.

I AGREE.

The sophomoric claim that it will be okay because down the road a conservative will be elected misses the point: They are elected to clean up the mess that the liberals created. LBJ's liberal mess STILL LIVES ON in a Medicare program that is a leviathan threatening the whole fiscal basis of the country. LBJ's welfare programs didnt get reform for *30* years.

FDR's New Deal was the same thing. It took 20 years to get a Republican in the White House, and when he got in, he met with Republican leaders in the Congress and said he wasnt going to repeal the New Deal programs. They stayed, forever.

When it comes to socialism, you have to kill in the crib or it will grow and be impossible to kill.

Obama's liberalism will be an outrageous imposition on the whole country. The taxpayers will get reamed.
