markp1950,

"That is what YOU CONSERVATIVES are all about. Taking RIGHTS  from people.

Two faced, piggish, selfish.

I was told all my life that in this great country. Except for yelling fire in a theatre, wou have the right to say whatever you want. Thanks to the COMMUNIST REPUBLICAN PARTY that right is GONE!!!!!!!

JUST ONE EXAMPLE!

I am a bigger fighter of personal liberty than you.  But that also includes personal responsibilty."

________________________________________________________________________

You have all this so incredibly backwards it's unbelieveable. Sounds like you're from the liberal school of making believe you preach tolernace and free speech until someone says something you don't agree with. Then if you can't really counter it you try and reverse it or call it a lie.

Communist Republican Party? Oh there's commies in US politics but they're not the Republicans.

Let's see, who are the gun grabbers?

That's just one example of many, but as the sage said don't evern discuss things with anyone who voted for obama twice because they are too stupid to argue with.

Since you're such a great fighter for personal liberty what was your military service, if any? I'm guessing your username reflects your birth year. Did you get called up or suddenyl become Amish, or perhaps go to Canada for a little while?

Communist Republican Party?

> Let's see, who are the gun grabbers?

Who's guns have been grabbed? Unlees you are a criminal, or a complete nut case, you STILL have your gun.  DO NOT LIE!

> I didn't volunteer for Military service BUT

I'm NOT your 2012 hero Mitt Romoney.  Supported the war. YET he is the 4 time draft dodger. 4 draft defferments while partying.

I didn't push the war, push for the war in Iraq YET get  5 defferments Like Dickey Cheaney the 5 time draft dodger....

I had a school draft defferment, thought about it and canceled it....  I did not support, or run from the war

The charge STILL stands, it is STILL the communist Republican Party.

Evidence is still there and the cowards are still to chicken to respond.   

I see that you edited out my Tesla example.  Not cool.

The Tesla example is PURE voilation of the 1st amendment. And it is going on day by day. Scary. WHERE is it backwards?

I respond with facts. 

The charge still stands.

You could be next!

    No but are your saying that you only want to follow the laws that you want to?? I said there are going to be laws that you like and dont like but we live in a democracy, majority rules so you're not gonna get your way all the time that's all I was trying to say

    I wonder where this wonderfull place is that you can do whatever you want, at any time.  And why would I want to live there.

      markp1950,

      What a typical liberal response.

      We're not talking what anyone else did, we're talking about what you, the 'bigger fighter for personal liberty' did........ obviously nothing.

      You've told us all we need to know:

      "I am a bigger fighter of personal liberty than you"

      "I didn't volunteer for Military service..."

      Translation, you're a sniveling draft dodging brainwashed liberal puke that doesn't givre a rats arse about anyone's freedom than your own.

      You're not even worth discussing anything with.

            A liberal quoting scripture. This is good, try these,

            John 8:44

            Daniel 12:10

            PS,

            You assume much. I'm no fan of Limbaugh......I have no use for flag ewaving dradt dodgers. Anyone can get behind a mike at a radio station once the bullets have stopped flying. He got drafted and appealed for a waiver to stay out of the Army for the exact condition his father got a waiver for to get in the Army.

            But he's probably right about the Pope.

                I want to drive through downtown at 90 mph. I want to go through a residental neighborhood blasting a stereo at 120 DB. 

                You STILL don't have the courage, or don't you care when other peoples "rights" are violated. It's only about YOU.

                "And then  your desires always seem to evolve into government enforced mandates that have to be obeyed by  everybody  under penalty of fine and imprisonment."

                YOU CONSERVATIVES ARE THE BIGGEST DEPRIVERS OF LIBERTY. 

                Yep, Telsa Motors, can not offer test rides, they can not mention the features, they can not metion prices, they can NOT display a sign.  under penalty of fine and imprisonment.

                Do you see my point?

                That is what YOU CONSERVATIVES are all about. Taking RIGHTS  from people.

                Two faced, piggish, selfish.

                I was told all my life that in this great country. Except for yelling fire in a theatre, wou have the right to say whatever you want. Thanks to the COMMUNIST REPUBLICAN PARTY that right is GONE!!!!!!!

                I am a bigger fighter of personal liberty than you.  But that also includes personal responsibilty.

                Calm down marky, let me assuage your fears.

                Come, let us reason together.

                You said:

                "You STILL don't have the courage, or don't you care when other peoples "rights" are violated. It's only about YOU."

                No marky, actually, it's you who doesn't care when other people's rights are violated.

                Because if you did, marky, you wouldn't be whining about your favorite rich guy's stupid car idea and how Texas isn't kissing his @ss properly. You'd  be screaming from the rooftops about the outrageous illegality and travesty of justice being perpetrated by a corrupt President and Senate and a blackmailed Chief Justice to force Americans to buy a product they neither want nor need -- namely Obamacare. If you truly cared about people's rights, that would be your bone of contention, not some dumb car.

                But there's a reason you're not lashing out against Obamacare, marky. And that reason is because you, marky, not having a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out, are one of those who will get it for FREE. Now that's what most of us would call hypocritical, marky. You're all worried about your dream car going into production, in Texas of all places, but no concern whatsoever about the Constitution being trampled underfoot by Barry's UnConstitutional Obamacare.

                Do you know what that does, marky?   

                That removes any credibility you ever had.

                That means you'll sell out your principles for free stuff from the government.

                Get the beam out of thine own eye first, marky.

                 

                Now looking over the rest of your post, I see it's just more of the same hysterical hyperbole, isn't it?

                But I spied something interesting way down at the bottom that caught my ofttimes annoyingly accurate eye of discernment.

                It was this:

                "I am a bigger fighter of personal liberty than you."

                Now I'll grant you that one, marky. You libs certainly are fighters of personal liberty at every turn.

                But thank God there are still a few good Americans around who fight for personal liberty.

                  Actually the ACA  is totally constitutional AND no one is getting it for free...you have to pay an affordable amout...like the poor working class on minimum wage who only make $290.00 a week BEFORE taxes..its just another one of those laws some like and some dont like...look at it like this there will never and I do mean never ever be a gun reform bill passed again in this country so that's a win for some who dont want it, now there is a healthcare reform law that some like and some dont...its give and take...that's America

                      Wrong.

                      All polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans were and still are opposed to and don't want Obamacare.

                      It was passed only by Democrats going against the will of the people without a single Republican vote.

                      The good news is that it will probably crash and burn like Detroit after the Democrats took over.

                          Evlove into government enforced mandates that have to be obeyed by everybody under penalty of fine or imprisonment....

                          Like what? Wearing seatbelts, air bags, speed limits, dumping of garbage and or littering....paying taxes??

                          We elect people to go to Washington and this is what they end up doing, they make laws...Now everybody may not like this law or that but we're in a democracy and majority rules...that's just America

                          "...we're in a democracy and majority rules...that's just America"

                          Wrong.

                          We don't live in a democracy under majority rule.

                          We live in a Representative Republic.

                          Big difference.

                            "...its just another one of those laws some like and some dont like..."

                            Wrong.

                            All polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans were and still are opposed to and don't want Obamacare.

                            It was passed only by Democrats going against the will of the people without a single Republican vote.

                            The good news is that it will probably crash and burn like Detroit after the Democrats took over.

                            Wrong all polls DO NOT show that an overwhelming majority of Americans are and were opposed to the ACA....it was passed because the majorty of the people put in office the people that were going to do what they said they were going to do when they ran on it and that is why they won...Crash and burn we will see, cause if it does work and thousands are signing up everyday still cause the site is up and working, if it does work somebody will be eating crow...I think it is to early to tell right now though, I know every republican is hating that people are signing up and they cant stop them

                              "...we're in a democracy and majority rules...that's just America"

                              Wrong.

                              We don't live in a democracy under majority rule.

                              We live in a Representative Republic.

                              Big difference.

                              Wrong we DO live in a democracy and majority DOES rule
