There was one man that had Obamas inner circle targeted, but we ran him off because someone thought, he thought they were heartless.

Now all we have a bighearted bleeding libs.

Revolutionary equalitarian retards want us to believe that if America is retarded, the rest of the world can catch up from being retarded... As if making your neighbor more dead or retarded than you was good for the neighborhood...

This is Obama’s mentality. Meanwhile liberals side like coward to the popularity of such mediocrity in fear, or in pride on being on the right side because there are more of them there, supposedly.

Wow, just wow.

This is so stupid. The media and lawyers are not going to take this profit to paradise, because, when push comes to shove, why in the heck would any one care about their fate.

“This is the 5th or 6th thread on this.”

Good! The more threads, the more people will see this video and share it with others. As I’m sure you probably know, not everyone sees the first thread on any given topic so repeats are a good thing more often than not.

Sadly, this thread has become a condemnation of US instead of THEM.

I am sick of this infighting.
We got the worst candidate because of infighting.

God help our country.... but I fear that God has already turned his back on America! If Odumb0 gets re-elected in another coup d’tat, and our country will be lost forever! We need 18-20 states to secede and form a new country! Or bring on Am Rev II to fight & regain our nation from the socialist commie demoRATs and the chief RAT of them all, 0dumb0!

If I wanted America to fail, I would sit on my a$$ being a crusty, “Thread Count Soup like Nazi” oblivious to real problems in the country and oblivious to the fact my mouse, just as my TV remote, controls the content I intake and allows me to skip those things I wish not review.

Thanks for the post! I hadn’t seen it either.

This is the 5th or 6th thread on this.

I've been away from my computer most of the day and I missed the "other 5 or 6", thank you very much. It is a well done and poignant video that deserves a lot of attention. I would have been disappointed had I not been able to send a link to this video to my email list of friends, family and acquaintances. Which is why I generally don't mind dupe posts.

It does however point out a shortcoming of FR; that is, there is not a "must see" or "must read" category or keyword for truly important, well done, or memorable articles, videos, what have you. A database or archive of sorts even for future searches of drop dead threads/posts? Just how any posts of that nature would be judged or voted into an "archive" I have no idea. View numbers or the number of replies wouldn't necessarily be a good measure, especially since multiple threads would skew those numbers.

Just finished watching the Robin Leach who did "lifestyles of the rich and famous" on Hannity. His interpretation of things as they now stand was very good, ie. success is now a dirty word.

Nope, we have the worst candidate because the arrogant, vile GOP-e crammed him down our throats.

Mitt does not deserve the vote of anyone who cherishes our Constitution. I am still praying for a miracle that will destroy Mitt's buying of the nomination.

I will happily and with full contentment do a write-in for President and vote Conservative down the ticket.

I am also working very hard to convince every Conservative I know to NOT vote for the Liberal fraud known as Mitt.

Every revolution has exploited the uneducated, the poor and the serfs of their areas to foment unrest. China, Russia, Germany, Viet Nam and on and on. Here we had had a pretty enlightened society developing so what did the anarchists infiltrate first....the education system, creating a new generation of recruits, useful idiots, who believe in nothing and therefore will believe in anything.

You and I would call them 'Guppies' instead of 'Yuppies, My. Maybe this video will hook some of them .

You got that right. For the ignorant people on this thread and others who say, "vote for Mitt." I have one question:

Do you realize this video is as much a condemnation of Mitt's view of government and his record as Obama's?

Mitt is 100% for Carbon restriction and AGW in general.

This video is telling us that the GOP-e, Mitt, and Obama are the direct object of the last line in this video.

If I wanted America to fail…to follow, not lead - to suffer, not prosper - to despair, not dream…I’d start with energy.

I’d come off America’s supply of cheap, abundant energy.

I couldn’t take it by force - so I’d make Americans feel guilty about using the energy that heats their homes, fuels their cars, runs their businesses and powers their economy.

I’d make cheap energy expensive - so that expensive energy would seem cheap.

I would empower unelected bureaucrats to all but outlaw America’s most abundant sources of energy.

And after banning its use in America, I’d make it illegal for American companies to ship it overseas.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d use their schools to teach one generation of Americans that their factories and their cars will cause a new ice age…

…and I’d muster a straight face so I could teach the next generation that they’re causing global warming.

When it’s cold out, I’d call it climate change, instead.

I’d imply that America’s cities and factories could run on wind power and wishes.

I’d teach children how to ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining, and farming…while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes, and food on their tables.

I would never teach children that the free market is the only force - in human history - to uplift the poor, establish the middle class, and create lasting prosperity.

Instead, I’d demonize prosperity itself, so they will not miss…what they will never have.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would create countless new regulations and seldom cancel old ones.

It would be so complicated that only bureaucrats, lawyers, and lobbyists could understand them.

That way, small businesses with big ideas…wouldn’t stand a chance - and I would never have to worry about another Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or…Steve Jobs.

I would ridicule, as flat-Earthers, those who urge them to lower energy costs by increasing supply.

And when the evangelists of common sense try to remind people about the laws of supply and demand, I’d enlist a sympathetic media to drown them out.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d empower unaccountable bureaucracies - seated in a distant capital - to bully Americans out of their dreams and their property rights.

I’d send federal agents to raid guitar factories for using the wrong kind of wood.

I’d force homeowners to tear down their own homes - built on their own land.

I’d make it almost impossible for farmers to farm, miners to mine, loggers to log, and builders to build.

Because I don’t believe in free markets, I’d invent false ones.

I’d devise fictitious products - like carbon credits - and trade them in imaginary markets.

I’d convince people that this would “create jobs” and be “good for the economy.”

If I wanted America to fail:

For every concern, I’d invent a crisis, and for every crisis, I’d invent the cause…

…like shutting down entire industries and killing tens of thousands of jobs in the name of saving spotted owls.

And when everyone learned the stunning irony - that the owls were the victims of their larger cousins, and not people - it would already be decades too late.

If I wanted America to fail:

I’d make it easier to stop commerce than to start it, easier to kill jobs than create them, more fashionable to resent success than to seek it.

When industries seek to create jobs, I’d file lawsuits to stop them, and then I’d make taxpayers pay…for my lawyers.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would transform the environmental agenda from a document of conservation - to an economic suicide pact.

I would concede entire industries to our economic rivals by imposing regulations that cost trillions.

I would celebrate those who preach environmental austerity in public - while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private.

I’d convince Americans that Europe…has it right…and that America has it wrong.

If I wanted America to fail:

I would prey on the goodness - and the decency - of ordinary Americans.

I would only need to convince them - that all of this - is for the greater good.

If I wanted America to fail, I…I suppose I wouldn’t change a thing.

If this poor guy got his Twitter account pulled because of it, do you really think the MSM would run it regardless of the ad dollars???

That’s the terrible thing about how powerful the MSM is - they can see to it that some things and some people never get in front of the public. As it is, only Fox News will cover a lot of stories that won’t be given time or attention on any other network. And we all know that FNC has a ways to go to be very conservative again, but the others are so much worse.

“If I wanted America to fail, I’d sit out this election because my candidate didn’t win the primary, and claim there is no difference between the two choices.”

Then I would say anything and everything to split and demoralize the voters who supporters of the republican nominee. This continued negative rant is getting really old. The intentions of the ranters as transparent as a clean window. Actually they are like little spoiled brats. If my person didn't get nominated I'm going to scream and yell and have a tantrum.

Major LOL - this weekend CMT ran a new Blue Collar comedy special called Them Idiots w/Foxworthy, Cable Guy and Engvall. Jeff did a hilarious riff on just that - like, why do cats only throw up at night; you’re in bed and then, from the hallway, you hear that gaakk gaakk gakk! He went on at some length; it was SO funny!
