The Suffragettes who demanded the right to vote in England had a slogan:

Deeds Not Words

Emily Davison gave her life at a horse race on June 4, 1913; and yet the Representation of the People Act granting women the right to vote in England did not pass until 1928.

libertarians come with lies and deceit on behalf of private sector kingships who know no allegiance to the people.


Yes. Yes, they do.

Ya. I agree. Lots of stupid puppet people. That said, when we have so many people that are dying or harmed immensely from that stupidity....they are bad people.

And every single politician that operates on the premise that if you tell the same lie often enough people will begin to believe it . . .

Shows ta go ya that Mittens is not a politician - OH he is very willing to lie - and lies with a smile ( approximation of a smile anyway ) at every single opportunity even when there is no need for a lie - he just can't stick to the same lie - even if he just got done delivering it.

I don't know - but the more I look at that race - the more I figure that the Corp(se)oRATists & Corp(se)oRATions didn't want Mittens to win.

That is really the only thing that makes sense. What is even worse - is - the number of people that appear to have voted for him.

Good points - so - growing insanity of the Corp(se)oRATists it is. That also makes a lot of sense - as Mittens is a Corp(se)oRAT through and through.
