    Vote!

    Women are sluts and need to close their legs.
    Corporations are people.
    Immigrants (children) are the enemy.
    Water is not a right.
    Homosexuals are evil sinners who need therapy.
    They are coming for your guns.
    We should be able to discriminate and segregate.
    Complete congressional gridlock.

    When did this narrative begin?

    1994? No.

    2004? No.

    We were never without problems. But this narrative has a start date: January 2011.

    Just after the 2010 midterms - when liberals chose not to vote - because they were impatient and disgruntled,The Tea Party (John Birch Society) gained House seats and legislative power.

    Liberals didn't vote.
    Liberals didn't vote.
    Liberals didn't vote.

    We have the power to change this narrative.

    There are more of us.

    Vote.

    Fascists just love to spread lies, half truths, and misinformation.

    The USA is both a Constitutional Republic AND a liberal representative democracy. The terms are not mutually exclusive.

    Excerpted from WIKI:

    Liberal democracy is a form of government in which representative democracy operates under the principles of liberalism, i.e. protecting the rights of the individual, which are generally enshrined in law. It is characterised by fair, free, and competitive elections between multiple distinct political parties, a separation of powers into differentbranches of government, the rule of law in everyday life as part of an open society, and the equal protection ofhuman rights, civil rights, civil liberties, and political freedoms for all persons. To define the system in practice, liberal democracies often draw upon a constitution, either formally written or uncodified, to delineate the powers of government and enshrine the social contract. After a period of sustained expansion throughout the 20th century, liberal democracy became the predominant political system in the world.

    A liberal democracy may take various constitutional forms: it may be a constitutional republic, such as France,Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, or the United States, or a constitutional monarchy, such as Japan, Spain, theNetherlands, Canada, or the United Kingdom. It may have a presidential system (Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, theUnited States), a semi-presidential system (France), or a parliamentary system (Australia, Canada, India,Pakistan,Italy, New Zealand, Poland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom).

    Liberal democracies usually have universal suffrage, granting all adult citizens the right to vote regardless of race, gender or property ownership. Historically, however, some countries regarded as liberal democracies have had a more limited franchise, and some do not havesecret ballots. There may also be qualifications such as voters being required to register before being allowed to vote. The decisions made through elections are made not by all of the citizens, but rather by those who choose to participate by voting.

    The liberal democratic constitution defines the democratic character of the state. The purpose of a constitution is often seen as a limit on the authority of the government. Liberal democracy emphasises the separation of powers, an independent judiciary, and a system of checks and balances between branches of government. Liberal democracies are likely to emphasise the importance of the state being a Rechtsstaat that follows the principle of rule of law. Governmental authority is legitimately exercised only in accordance with written, publicly disclosed laws adopted and enforced in accordance with established procedure. Many democracies use federalism—also known as vertical separation of powers—in order to prevent abuse and increase public input by dividing governing powers between municipal, provincial and national governments

    BTW Mr. Multiple Personality Troll, how long have you been a John Birch Society member?

    They have been pushing the same BS for decades and all you are doing is regurgitating their ultra far right wing propaganda. Today's Tea Party is just another front for the same old John Birch Society crap.







    OK troll, you are now free to: http://youtu.be/kArgQz1RKmk
