"Marriage Freedom"?? Is that what you're calling it now?

"Gay Marriage" is just a fantasy name,..like "assault rifle". Made up by Democrats and their legions of drones to try and create something that doesn't exist. All just propaganda to decieve the low information voters and weak minded sheepeople who eat and drink from the trough of Government extorted tax payers money.

Freedom to marry and to not get shot are the American Way!

Massive firearm hoarding and marriage discrimination are ugly aberrations of democracy which we have neglected in our quest to make this an ever more perfect Union, just as Slavery and excluding women suffrage were, until we finally ended them. But now that we are aware of these impossible atrocities, we will put them, too, at last to rest!! None too soon. Let's hope no one suffers in discriminated marriage or dies from another GUN SLAUGHTER before we do!! Hurry up assholes!!

That is the difference. Vote out all anti gay politicians

Anti- Freedom & Democracy politicians!

I can't believe there aren't enough educated voters to kick out the extremist wackos running the republican party, and destroying the country

[-] 2 points by WSmith (2009) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Gerrymandering!!!

Many more sane voters voted, but the Cons have contrived false districts. They can only win by cheating.

New study shows we can override the Cheaters by increasing voter participation! Something I have heard has many great democratic advantages... so I've heard.

[-] 2 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

And that IS the goal. More participation. We can overwhelm the anti 99% neo cons.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (2009) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Get out the sleeping, disenfranchised, disillusioned VOTE!!!!

Mandatory voting for all eligible citizens.

Not so familiar with them. What is their platform?

[-] -1 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Wow, you are really on top of things eh?

Dive into the site, you will find a lot of stuff that you like.

[-] 1 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

NO thanks. If you can't say what they stand for you either don't support them, don't know, or don't care enough to do so.

Seems to me they are a tiny indignificant party that will never get a foothold in office until we change election/campaign laws.

Do they have any local office holders?

[-] -1 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Do you need someone to hold your hand in everything?!!

Take a look, or dont. Do what you want.

[-] 1 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

LOL. No I don't need you to hold my hand motherfucker. You campaign for this party then be prepared to offer facts.

Why they fuck should I waste my time with this hopeless,tiny party when it's pushed by the forum libertarian/conservative shill mascott?

I ain't interested in your partisan campaigning. Especially if you can't discuss issues.

In fact I prefer only discussing issues, not parties.

"I can't believe there aren't enough educated voters to kick out the extremist wackos running the republican party, and destroying the country

Why would you think Im a libertarian? Why cant I just be a person?

FYI I would like to make the SEC, FDA, etc all democratically elected positions. I dont believe society has the time to monitor these thieves and criminals, so we need those agencies.

I also wouldnt mind seeing communities creating their own healthcare pools, you know....socialism!! Same for schools.

[-] 1 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

Oh "the real occupiers" Like you???

I have to tell you what occupy is doing in your own hometown.

I don't come here to impress anyone or garner support. I'll leave that to the vain, friend starved social media addicts.

I come here to do what I am doing. Post important valuable new info, and encourage action on the issues that occupy has taken a stand on, and to challenge any anti 99% elements who spew division on this site.

My efforts on the street are in support of all progressive solutions that benefit the 99%, as it has been for decades.

Anyone who starts segregating "real" and "not real" occupiers, are most likely intolerant, & bigoted (states righters?) and not worth my time.

I'm interested in discussing the issues, not dividing us by establishing who is a real occupier.

[-] 1 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

Whatever. You are clearly protecting the Kochs, (as always) You've said repeatedly you would eliminate Social security, You repeatedly call for states rights and eliminating fed pgms in place of local.

Them there is your Breitbart links.

You may be fooling some here, but not the ones who truly know you.

[-] -1 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

If people want to go into SS, thats fine for me. And Im not for the states power either, fyi. And yes, local is the way to go.

buy local. shop local. govern local. Very easy. If you really spent anytime occupying anything you could have experienced this. or sit on the computer for years at a time.

And if you think the real occupiers dont look at your 24/7 handle spamming as blatant attacks on the site, you are only fooling yourself.

Have a nice day loser.

Educated voters? When the media is controlled by the duopoly, and the debates shut out anyone with a brain, how can you expect any better?

No one wants to do their homework. No one wants to do their own things.

Its follow the leader. Right into the fire.

[-] 1 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

I know many educated voters. Occupy is educating people every day.

We have begun the necessary work to counter the bread & circuses duopoly controlled brainwashing we live under.

WE must stay focused and steadfast in that most important goal.

No use in whining and complaining, that gets us nowhere. Hard work, & sacrifice will rule the day.

[-] -1 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Stating facts isnt whining. Its teaching.

[-] 2 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

Agreed. That is why I didn't say stating facts were whining.

Why would you state such an obvious fact.?

Do you disagree that whining & complaining gets us no where?

Do you disagree that hard work and sacrifice will rule the day.?

[-] 1 points by greysone (-264) 1 year ago

so, what then prevents a father from marrying his daughter, or a brother from marrying his sister, or 2 sisters marrying?

Stop manufacturing consent. dickhead.

You use fake ID's to vote yourself up, and others down, to give a phoney impression that someone thinks you know what you are talking about.

If you don't like seeing this information, then the answer is simple; STOP DOING IT, DICKHEAD.

It's the truth and you know it is, DM.

You should spend your time pretending you have some friends in the world.

OWS needs activists. Not pretenders. You are doing what the 1% do, by manufacturing consent. You've already been busted for doing it, and you're still doing it, you dickhead. You think we don't all see you doing it? What a cockhead you are, if you don't think we all see you voting for yourself.

COCKHEAD SUPREMO

You mean I should imagine I have seven new friends? And register them as users here on this forum?

I can't remember how to do that, but I'm sure you could give me some pointers there, VQ.

You must manufacture some new consenters every day of the week, eh mate?

[-] 0 points by greysone (-264) 1 year ago

you said there are law(s) that cover that situtation,.....................i asked you cite the law. please be specific. provide a link(s). if you think that anyone should be able to marry anyone they choose to then that would include a mother marrying her son, or daughter, a father marrying his son or daughter, sisters marry each other, brothers marrying each other, grandmother marrying a grandson etc. please cite the laws that do not allow that.

Off who's topic? You are manipulating and manufacturing consent.

You are using multiple identities to upvote your comments, while downvoting the comments of people you are talking to.

Which part of that are you having trouble understanding, that you are manufacturing consent?

Do I need to put your head over a scale of dumbness again?

People should be free to do whatever they want.

That being said, people should stop wanting approval from the their politicians as well.

[-] 0 points by greysone (-264) 1 year ago

so, you think its o.k for a mother to marry her son ?

[-] -1 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

I personally dont, but I dont get to decide what things are, in terms of free and what others arent.

Perhaps a direct democracy is more your style.

inbreeding produces congenital idiots,....which explains why democrats are the way they are

I would put anyone who votes for Republicans or Democrats in the same discussion- 100% played.

Played like a fiddle.

Do you have the link to the bill in the Senate that Reid presented?

On gay marriage? I think you are confused.

Reread the thread and get back to me when you've got things straight.
