    Hopefully they will have two Dems running and no Repubs. Don`t you think? Lincoln was a Dem wasn`t he?

    Lincoln was a Republican... but Republicans and Democrats practically switched platforms through the years. The term Republican back in Lincolns day meant someone that believed in the union, thought representative government was a good idea, and stronger central government... Sometime around JFK`s era, a bunch of southern democrats (often called Angry White Men) switched parties because they were tired of the democratic party going towards special interest groups (such as race equality and helping the poor) and took over the Republican party. The democrats started doing this steadily after the war because they became "peace Democrats" and they became the people`s party.

    Madest, the Republican party has not changed its ideals since the days of Reconstruction, except for when the Radical Republicans decided it was necessary to end Reconstruction.

    @CrakrJak, I do not like your Dr. Sues post.
    It makes it tough for me to boast.
    You try to make us care.
    With your Dr. Sues tear.
    You succeed with your rip.
    Because you are quick with your lip.
    CrakrJak wins this quest.
    He has passed the IAB test.
    I`m jealous of your wit.
    But prefer a 34b tit.
    Just throwing that out there.
    To hear another CrakrJak tear.

    "This asshat talks too much. Just show the vid."

    If you`d payed attention the vid was posted earlier.

    On the topic: This is typical Republican nationalism stirring, America is a proud country and nothing is more effective than mentioning Abe/George/showing people with guns/the star spangled banner/the US anthem.

    Sadly the world is changing America and if you don`t change with it, it`ll leave you behind.

    I`m not much for poetry, despite my poetic ancestry.
    Ii is trite and disingenuous, mostly vague and prevents strenuous
    introspection of events, to allow people to invent,
    lies of a scale the should be crime, all hidden carefully in "clever" rhyme.

    So allow me a moment to clarify. He won`t wear a flagpin? That`s a lie.
    The healthcare plan is just as it says, calling it a scam is just one of the ways
    you`re playing with words ignoring their meaning, but only this time, I don`t remember you squealing
    back in the day when there really was a problem, when I cried "crooks", and you cried: Absolve them!

    I`m tired of your bullpoo, I`m tired of your lies, I`m tired of your grief, and how it only applies
    that half of the time, when the crooks aren`t on your side, how when it was George and Dick, taking you for a ride,
    you`d happily bend, forwards or back, now the tests have come back positive, you blame Barack?

    You`re only a slave if you choose to be (which makes you not really a slave at all). Don`t put your money in banks, grow your own dam food, build your own dam house. Nobody`s making you live the lavish American lifestyle. If anything Americans are slaves to convenience.

    But just to show I`m not untalented, I made my own, So STFU.

    Shame on the liars, lechers, and oppressors.
    Out with entitlements
    Out with Don`t Ask Don`t Tell
    Out with the self-centered idiots who work in our government.
    Let`s simplify Taxes
    Let`s end discrimination of all kinds
    Let`s not worry about unimportant details such as race, sex, religion, income, and orientation and give all the equal chance they deserve in the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Wait, let me get this straight CrakrJak if I happen to remember a poem or paragraph someone else written in another piece of work, and then written that down in one any forum thread without even bothering mention who actually wrote that paragrph/poem or even trying to interpret it, that`s not plagiarism? I don`t know what else is CrakrJak.

    I`ve never posted a link...nor do i post thoughts that are not my own...so i dont need to cite myself. BOOM headshot.

    And its pretty funny you calling Cajun a troll when you dont post on any links other than political ones, where you spew conservative talking points without citing the folks that drilled them into your head.

    CrakrJak = plagiarist troll...
