    I’m not a “right-winger”. That might be hard for a disingenuous, intellectually impaired, leftist troll, such as yourself, to comprehend.
    Try again, stupid.

    There is more integrity and intellectual honesty in the group of people that I cited above than there is in the entire democrat party.
    Go ahead and keep cheerleading your liberal heroes as they continue to push to get us involved in more entangling foreign alliances, arm terrorists, trample the 4th amendment, expand the domestic spy program and warrantless wiretapping, blow up innocent women and children with drones, and wage a war on federal whistle blowers.
    Stay classy, leftist troll.

    I believe that it is a matter of perception. The republicans said nothing as bush gutted the 4th amendment and spent us into oblivion but as soon as Obama got elected they all magically found their inner Thomas Jefferson and got their collective Gadsden flags in a wad over Obama’s fiscal irresponsibility. They’re all hypocrites. The same goes for the democrats who wanted to impeach Bush for the patriot act and domestic spy programs but who haven’t said a word about Obama tripling the domestic spy program, renewing the patriot act and signing the NDAA.
    Party politics is hypocritical by nature and, thus, the river of hypocrisy flows in both directions.

    New republican party?
    Seems to me that the republicans have be acting like this for a LONG, LONG time. Both parties, in fact, are equally hypocritical in their logic (or lack thereof).

    I understand where you are coming from but I disagree with throwing it all on the SCOTUS. We need to elect leaders who exercise restraint and who understand the consequences of their actions, especially in regards to future administrations. Like it or not, precedent DOES shape laws, which is why we need leaders who will not be so quick to jump towards knee-jerk legislation or abuses of executive powers.

    Its all good. We usually are on the same page, East

    “if you are somehow implying that Unconstitutional laws can be moderated or justified based on their intent, then, yes… we disagree sharply”

    I didn’t say anything close to that. I actually argued the exact opposite. No offense but I don’t think that you actually read what I wrote.
    My point is that both parties are guilty of knee-jerk unconstitutional abuses of presidential powers and that both parties claim to do it for “good intentions”. We must understand these intentions or we will be doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over and over again.

    “Bush also never used wiretapping for political gain. He did for our protection”

    There is no excuse for violating the constitution.

    “i don’t care what either Bush or Obama’s intent was/ is”

    I couldn’t disagree more. The issue here is precedent and when it comes to precedent, intentions are everything.
    Both parties have disastrous knee-jerk reactions to certain issues; Democrats have knee-jerk reactions to issues involving race, gender, sexual orientation, climate, etc, whereas republicans have knee-jerk reactions to defense, war, national security, etc.
    In both cases, both parties claim the moral high ground, citing “good intentions” (i.e. safety/preventing another terrorist attack in the case of republicans, and social justice in the case of the democrats) while simultaneously, both parties seek to limit our freedoms and our constitutional liberties by pushing legislation such as the patriot act and Obamacare.
    This is why we must single out the intent behind the laws that are passed. It is to ensure that we don’t make the same knee-jerk mistakes again because the unconstitutional powers that an administration grants to itself never go away. Instead, they transfer to all future administrations. It is a snowball effect with tyranny as an end result.

    but the precedent that Obama has used to gut 4th amendment was set by the Bush administration. Although, I tend to agree that Bush had noble intentions, whereas Obama is fulfilling a socialist big brother utopia, the fact remains that Obama is using unconstitutional powers that transferred to him from the Bush administration.
    The road to hell is paved with good intentions……
    This is why we need to elect solid constitutionalists, such as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, or Justin Amash; people who understand precedent and who understand that any unconstitutional powers that you use will one day be transferred to future administrations.

    This administration’s hatred for all things “white” knows no bounds. Holder may be even more despicable than Obama is…..if that is even possible.

    You guys are low information posters.
    Maher has been saying that Islam is a violent religion and that Muslims commit the overwhelming majority of acts of terrorism around the world for years. I guess that you only hear what you want to hear….typical of kneejerk reactionaries like yourselves.

  • [9] August 20, 2014 at 5:57am

    You couldn’t be more wrong. I can’t stand Maher but the man is much harder on Islam than he is on Christianity.

    I’m not the biggest fan of Ventura, but this is sloppy journalism on Beck’s part. Taya will not be paying a dime to Ventura just like she didn’t pay a dime in laywer fees. The publisher carried insurance. End of the story.

    “Dissent, So you are against wiretapping phone calls of terrorists who plot to blow up buildings and mas murder Americans”

    I am against violating the civil liberties of innocent American citizens. Last time I checked, the NSA has been tapping the everyday communications of everyday citizens; not hardened terrorists. I guess I just cherish my freedoms and I’m not willing to hand them to the government out of fear.

    “And that was the Patriot act, not a “separate” wiretapping program, at least under Bush, it wasn’t”

    Its called precedent. Obama has used the big brother policies set by the Bush administration ( policies supported by knee-jerk neocons like yourself ) and expanded them much further than Bush ever imagined.

    “And it was Ron Paul who supported the, war in Iraq”


    “He also wanted no government surveillance of violent white supremacists groups not even when they were out in public.
    He wanted them to be investigated only AFTER they had committed some violent act.
    So under a Ron Paul presidency, they could have plotted and trained for and carried out a mass attack on Jews all across the country, that would have made Crystal Nacht look like a picnic in comparison, before the police and FBI would even begin an investigation”

    This is the most psychotic, rambling, nonsensical crap that I have ever heard. It sounds like an MSNBC talking point.

  • [8] July 24, 2014 at 6:29pm

    “Are you enjoying Obama’s second term? We have Ron Paul to thank for that”

    No, you have the fact that you and the rest of the GOP RINO’s have no core values and continue, election after election, to vote for, nominate, and support limp-wristed liberal progressives like Bush, Dole, Bush 2, McCain, and Romney to blame for Obama.
    Again, have fun voting for Christie, chump.
    Raise your standards.
