#1 My 26-yr old nephew's rant (there's hope for the younger generation):
"As if 48 months with no job creation, obama-care, fast and furious, the benghazi cover up, the crony stimulus binge, and Obama's class warfare tactics aren't enough to steer you towards Romney, now he wants us to believe that Iran is DECADES away from nuclear capability. "Nothing to see here folks. Those guys are noooooo problem." These idiots are like a toddler with a shotgun. They simply do not respect or comprehend the power that they wield, and are reckless and dangerous with it. I don't believe that Romney will be the next Reagan, but I think it would be national suicide to re-elect these blithering idiots."

#2 Dr. lotp, I agree with every word of your post.
I would add: if you're going to fight back, understand first that the other side plays dirty. (They're entitled to, because what they think is so right that anyone who disagrees with them is a sort of intellectual untermensch.) Last week I posted an article at another site over my real name in which I took factual issue with something a certain Democratic senatorial candidate had claimed, and virtually the next day my "Google profile" had changed so that the top article was about someone of the same name being arrested in Florida for aggravated assault. Now, that's no big deal and is something I can fix pretty easily, but the speed with which some unknown person investigated my background was seriously creepy.

No longer safe in what was not long ago, a polite society.

#5 Nice rant, lotp. I wish I could get my (adult) children to read it. Maybe you could create a Reader's Digest version? Maybe it'd mean more to my kids if I did the editing...
Anyway, this is the first election where I have made several contributions. After I read this, I contributed to Allan West, the Tea Party, and Mitt for Prez. I hope Fred is good for a couple of weeks!

This kind of thing is what is at stake, and it happened the last time this country went off the rails.

#7 If you felt stirred by lotp's missive, you might find Fix Bayonets interesting.

#8 Even French seem to be on a similar trajectory...

#9 Good lotp. Civil discourse and the debate of ideas is unknown to the progressives. Their notion of a debate is to shout everyone down who disagrees with them. If they are not shouting everyone down, they lie about what it is they are doing. They care little for the principles which are the foundation of this great country.

#10 Fix bayonets, indeed.
But then - charge.

#11 Righteous rant, lotp!
Spent an hour yesterday making online donations to conservatives such as Mia Love, Allan West, and of course Romney. (It's not that I have a lot of money, it's just that each form has to be filled out again, and that takes time.)
All my overtime pay for the past 2 years is going to this effort. And I'll definitely be voting Election Day before I go to work.
