    New Repug "Purity Test" based on Reagan: Reagan would fail test !!!

    Anything less than 80% and you lose backing and funding...Reagan would not get backed by the party that thinks he's "THE" role model.

    Bye bye moderates...welcome to the Democratic party, we'll take ya!

    Repug impure test:

    (1) We support smaller government, smaller national debt, lower deficits and lower taxes by opposing bills like Obama’s “stimulus” bill;
    (2) We support market-based health care reform and oppose Obama-style government run health care;
    (3) We support market-based energy reforms by opposing cap and trade legislation;
    (4) We support workers’ right to secret ballot by opposing card check;
    (5) We support legal immigration and assimilation into American society by opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants;
    (6) We support victory in Iraq and Afghanistan by supporting military-recommended troop surges;
    (7) We support containment of Iran and North Korea, particularly effective action to eliminate their nuclear weapons threat;
    (8) We support retention of the Defense of Marriage Act;
    (9) We support protecting the lives of vulnerable persons by opposing health care rationing and denial of health care and government funding of abortion; and
    (10) We support the right to keep and bear arms by opposing government restrictions on gun ownership.


    Funny thing about this list its modeled after the saintly Ronald Reagan but he couldn't even pass this test.

    #1 Govt and the deficit grew under Reagan - Fail
    #5 Reagan supported amnesty - Fail
    #6 Reagan went against generals when told to get out of Beruit result, massacre of troops - Fail
    #10 After James Brady was shot Reagan supported gun control - Fail

    Kissin' that teabaggers ass is gonna come back to bite ya you know where.

I do not like when Congress steals, I do not like their secret deals. I do not like ex-speaker Nan, I do not like this 'YES WE CAN'..I do not like this spending spree, I'm smart, I know that nothing's free. I do not like their smug replies, when I complain about their lies. I do not like this kind of hope. I do not like it. Nope, nope, nope!

    ^^^^ Ya know, when you spend 1.5 trillion dollars and still have growing unemployment- and you're the one standing in that f*cking line- no one really gives a sh*t about what went on with a dead president. When you want to join the rest of us here in 2009- let us know.

    "We say in our platform that we believe that the right to coin money and issue money is a function of government....

    Those who are opposed to this proposition tell us that the issue of paper money is a function of the bank and that the government ought to go out of the banking business. I stand with Jefferson rather than with them, and tell them, as he did, that the issue of money is a function of the government and that the banks should go out of the governing business."

    Re: Election 2010

    I was going to post this in the Economics thread- but this needs to be here.

    I'm going to call it like I see it. If you want to make next election a partisan fight- you are begging for a bread line to starve in. If you think government healthcare is so important right now- wait until you see what a full fledged Greater Depression does to an undermanned medical system that is underfunded by a bankrupt government. Drop trusting THIS government with any health bills and deal with this first.



    I'm kind of hoping some of you might take a vacation from California for a year (or more) starting next year.

    Guess you have'nt heard this is a NEW REAL test for the repugs seeking office.

    I didn't base it on Ronnie, the repubs did, And I am unemployed right now, but it is by choice, not because I got laid off.

    Kissin' that teabaggers ass is gonna come back to bite ya you know where.

    Let me make sure I have this right. If I leave anything out please do feel free to add to the list.

    Unemployment is at 10.2%, the economy is on life support. We have a multi-trillion dollar 2000 page healthcare package pending that will surely pull the plug. Waiting in the wings is cap n tax legislation that will be the final nail in the coffin of capitalism, independence and freedom. We have a president our allies don’t trust and our enemies love. We have a president that’s so politically correct that he is an apologist for Islamic terrorism. We have an 800 billion dollar failed stimulus package and god only knows how much money the taxpayers have lost on TARP.

    And the best talking points you can come up with are about a president who has been dead over five years and his last day in office was over 20 years ago.

    You’re either as radical as this president and congress or you hate GWB and the republican party so much it’s clouded your judgment. Let me tell you what socialism really is. In a full-blown socialist society there is a very small select group that controls all the money and the rest of the masses live in poverty. The masses are herded from pasture to pasture by the great messiah. Every once in a while the messiah will toss the masses a bacon and cheese flavored Beggin' Strip" to keep them happy and in chains. It is slavery with no hope and no chance for change.

    I’m starting a new travel agency I call “Heaven’s Gate” and my introductory offer will be what I call the “Hale-Bopp” excursion. Would you like to be the first to join the tour?

    Who was this kid, I'm guessing he must have been a "WIT" (winger in training). No adult would use that term, I'm guessing 16 or 17 yrs.old.

    Your party started this so called "test", calling on the great spirit which is all things "Ronnie", I'm just pointing out that if you all start purging your party of all the moderates (RINOs) as you call them, you'll be left with a very small radical party. Be my guest, I'm all for it!!

    And if your next "Great White Hope" is SP, good luck with that, her aligning herself with Glenn "Magic Underwear" Beck isn't going to endear her to the sane people or independents.

    I think you have it all wrong. After 4 years of what we have right now the country is going to be more than ready for fiscal responsibility and adult supervision in Washington, DC. You don’t get fiscal responsibility with RINOS or moderates that aren’t much different from what we have right now.

    I’ve figured out why the liberals hate old Sarah so much. She has everything to do with the middle class and the middle class is what the out of touch elitist liberals really hate. The middle class is the only thing between them and the socialist Shangri-La they want so badly.

    The dems lose big in 2010 and in 2012 it will be a democratic party disaster.
