    Only a city can be a Democracy. the power to be will never let that happen. A king will come from the establishment, like Julius.

    If the Republic falls it more like will turn into a Democracy then a Empire, just saying.

  • Ratboy

    Hey Ralph, have you noticed that every time we post question to the loons as to why their band of clowns did something like …ah… 35 of them voting against their own senate budget, they go mute? :lol:

  • Matthew

    @Ralph: Always, the insults come in the form of turning others into a dehumanized collective. I don’t understand the compulsion. I’d certainly not judge d.d. or Ratboy by what Chriscee posts, or accuse Coffee Steve of being a spammer just because LBSLES spams, so at least show some bare-minimum of integrity, and don’t lump me in with imbeciles like usa8888, thanks. Both my merits and my failures are wholly my own, much as your ignorance is your own, and not the responsibility of ‘the conservative posters.’

  • Chriscee

    @ Ralph and Susy….

    Thank you for your efforts. I appreciate them. I will never FEAR a liberal…ever.

  • Chriscee

    Once again..Matthew makes my point….liberals accuse but never can take the heat for their actions.

    The mirror does work. Try it sometime.


  • Doug Z

    Mark there will be no Empire. that word is Latin. Reich was used for the first time, you know who- German word meaning the same as Empire.they will call it something to do with Freedom, or people.Sounds better

  • Letmethink

    @chriscee. Enjoy your posts—-keep ’em coming.

  • Doug Z

    You had better fear me. I will beat you with my low IQ words, and spelling

  • Chriscee

    lol @ Doug!! gotta love you!!

  • Matthew

    Once again..Matthew makes my point….liberals accuse but never can take the heat for their actions.

    Why do you feel the need to lie? I take full responsibility for the fact that I’ve been mean to other posters here, so why do you lack the courage to acknowledge your own nastiness, your own compulsion toward BSing and trying to dehumanize millions of human beings, based on nothing more than their political identity? I’m not demanding that you change, I’m asking you to at least stop the cowardly victim routine, and acknowledge your own nastiness.

    As to the validity of your points, that’s sheer fantasy. If ‘the liberals’ hate religion so much, why did Obama win 70%+ of Jewish voters, over half of the Catholics, and over 40% of Protestants? Also, much like O’Reilly, Colbert gives his book proceeds to veteran’s charities, as well as giving all of his SuperPAC money to a a variety of Sandy charities; some people, regardless of political ideology, are greedy, and some are giving.

    Stop the generalizations.

  • Mark

    To be honest I am not sure if I would prefer a Democracy or not.

    On one hand I think the Senate is stupid. California has 38M people and Wyoming/Vermont have 600k. All 3 have 2 Senators.

    On the other hand in a Democracy we probably would base the President(or Prime Minister) on the basis who wins the most Districts which means Republicans would win. lol

  • Chriscee

    Why are our US Border Patrol Agents – uniforms manufactured in MEXICO??

    Why are they NOT made in the USA??

    I thought Obama was all about jobs in America.

    Once again..Obama sends jobs across the border!

  • Mark2

    Come on…we all know that Bill O’Reilly didn’t even write the “Killing” series. He and people like Glenn Beck have ghost writers. Martin Dugard was the one who actually wrote Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy. Martin Dugard also wrote Killing Jesus. O’Reilly just puts his name on the book and gets his part of the profits.

  • Chriscee

    Why is Obama delaying Oil and Gas exploration permits on public property???

    I thought Obama was all about the USA being energy independent.

  • ninja

    @ Ratboy…..LOL……………Apple is a smart ass…..ke ke ke

  • Chriscee

    O’Reilly gives all proceeds of his book sales to Wounder Warrior Project. He makes the statement every night when he talks about his books on his TV program.

    Stop trying to make O’Reilly out to be greedy. He isn’t. He’s a very generous man. Wounded Warrior Project is very appreciative of all of O’Reilly’s hard work for their cause.

    O’Reilly is a great patriot.

  • Doug Z

    Mark who ever is in charge means nothing for the other side will be in charge always changing.

    Ben Franklin said There is nothing better than a great king and nothing worst than a bad king. We will have a republic which is mediocrity.

    You know I feel you can not spend to a better economy. But I know the economy is held up though spending,money we do not have. Do not tell anybody.

    Nobody is talking about manufacturing and natural resource, product to sell. It would be economic war. We would win , but war like effects on the people. The county would be better off after we pay the price, a lot of pain.

    In time this will happen if we like it or not.Not good for the people when it happens.

  • Mark2

    A lot of the Christian websites are disappointed with all the inaccuracies and violence with History’s The Bible series.

    Either way, ABC/Disney, & the Hearst family are laughing all the way to the bank.

  • Ratboy

    Can’t fix stupid!

    Ghost writers are not given credit! O Reilly has ALWAYS given shared credit to his partner and researcher for the books! One day you might do a little simple research before making stupid posts!

  • Doug Z

    Come on…we all know that Bill O’Reilly didn’t even write the “Killing” series.

    Stan T wrote it. He told me.
