Mark Twain sums up my thoughts on Maddow:

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

- Liberty and Prosperity -

stopped watching after she

stopped watching after she brought up the minority report. please...

and this is an old video anyway she isn't just 'waking up'

Maddow is no friend of liberty.

She wants everyone to be equally indentured to Goldmans.

This Obama speech and segment

This Obama speech and segment was a couple years ago but interesting to watch it again. Really shows how Obama made good on what he planned to do. Creating a structure to allow "legally" indefinite, prolonged detention. What a farce. Blows my mind how so many people could get glassy-eyed over him. ugh.

Who could forget

Who could forget "Obama Is Going To Pay For My Gas And Mortgage!!! "

Wonder how that's working out for her?

We need Ron Paul.

Tin Pan

Damn. I didn't realize that

Damn. I didn't realize that was from 2009 I must have read added January 2012 sorry guys.

Don't worry

Don't worry it happens to everyone. I remember a few times I was going to post some videos that I thought were really good. And then I realized the place where I found them to begin with was the DP.

Two shorten the road.

And this is why Ron Paul can win

There are allot of people out there with buyers remorse...

This is from 2009.

Time will tell. If she ever gets fired, then we'll know.

Unfortunately, that may be the only way to tell these days.

Thanks, Important to know.

She is not the real thing. She's a fake.

not the only one

today pre-breitbarting could occur - maybe as another hot knitted "but necessary" addition to law in the minds of the Occupation forces that strangle the US to death!

Likely "this criticism" is buying time ... a false consciousness raising a "warning finger" to give some sheeple with doubts the feeling - uh look, things are not that bad, media is "against" this!

When Neocons & Facism go to sleep, they look under the bed for Ron Paul and "WE THE PEOPLE"!

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." M.Mead

Haha she's been awake

Following this, she reports on our success every time something happens. Definitely one of the better ppl in the media

ehh

I don't like recycled news on here. This is really old.

A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

I NEVER trust people like her, I always prefer to trust and respect someone with a lifelong history of intelligence, morality, dignity and courage.
Not long ago she was destroying Rand Paul on her show, what, it was so hard to spend 20 minutes online to do her homework and learn the truth about her guest? Even people posting here are trying to be accurate when writing something, but she never cared, tool or useful idiot she always put her interests waaaaaaay above the interests of USA and humanity, because, remember, people died, get tortured and lose their limbs around the world because of MSM lies. Remember Irak has WMD's?

So I don't give a shit about her so called "awakening".

She's reporting the truth now

She's reporting the truth now so you're the one that looks like a douche.

Rachel is waking up?

You mean she finally realizes that taxation is theft, government is violence, and the free market is humanity's great benefactor? lol I wish

Old, but good.

Old, but good.

There was a great quote I

There was a great quote I read somewhere recently and I think it was on the DP. I wish I had copied it.

Something like, "Whereever the welfare state is the police state is on its heels."

Anyone know who said that or something similar. I would love to have that one as a little gem of insight.

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin

I know what quote you mean

I did some searching on Google and was able to find it on a DP link:

"Where the Welfare State is on the march the Police State is not far behind." Melchior Palyi Hungarian Economist

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

Thank you!

I tried to find it but couldn't. You are awesome!

I love my fellow DP'rs!

Compulsory Medical·Care and The Welfare State

Compulsory Medical·Care and The Welfare State

MELCHIOR PALYI
Excerpt from:
Chapter 1.

"A CHICKEN IN EVERY POT"

“France's Henry IV in the 16th. Century promised a chicken in every· pot. Her brilliant Colbert in the 17th century and Prussia's enlightened Frederick the Great in the 18th, these forerunners of modem dictators, gloried in calling themselves the first servants of the nation.

Their Police State used the Welfare State as its instrument, facade and justification, as do modern dictatorships. In democracies the Wefare State is the beginning and the Police State the end.

The two merge sooner or later, in all experience, and for obvious reasons.”

If Maddow and the other Obama sycophants were honest

they would expose Obama for what he really is (and they know what he really is). But that would mean they were wrong about Obama and they don't have the guts to admit that. So until they do, no one should take them seriously.

And if you haven't seen the film she mentions, Minority Report, do so. It is fantastic and scary. And very timely.

True and I'm not so much

True and I'm not so much condoning her just very surprised it came from her. I wouldn't be surprised if she suddenly resigns and a month later gets whacked.after this Lol

Why are people complaining?

Why are people complaining? Before he was elected, it was known that Obama embraced socialist & marxist policies. NDAA (indefinate detention), H.R. 347 (anti-protest bill), executive order - National Defense Resources Preparedness (government can take our possessions, for the purpose of defense, even in time of peace)
Removal of the people's voice, possesions, and rights...that's the practical application of such policies.
Bush set the table, Obama is now starting the feast.

Shared. Not sure how I

Shared. Not sure how I missed this one in January. A lot of people (with functional brains) are aware, but we find ourselves almost powerless to fight against the clean-washed brains of the collective public.
