Democratic establishment unmasked: Glenn Greenwald

" One of the worst myths Democratic partisans love to tell themselves - and everyone else - is that the GOP refuses to support President Obama no matter what he does. Like its close cousin - the massively deceitful inside-DC grievance that the two parties refuse to cooperate on anything - it's hard to overstate how false this Democratic myth is. When it comes to foreign policy, war, assassinations, drones, surveillance, secrecy, and civil liberties, President Obama's most stalwart, enthusiastic defenders are often found among the most radical precincts of the Republican Party."

deacon

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Yes she is

We are a Constitutional republic not a democracy, democracy is Mob rule.

you poor thing

represenative democracy leaning federal republic since 1787 when the parties were established

deacon's picture

not in the context

of which she was speaking,now if she had
what she did,as fact upon our founding of this nation,it would be wrong
america has become,a republic leaning democracy (more of a democracy,than republic)
but,it was not meant to be this way

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

your paragraph

is not written well and very incoherent, I don't know what your even getting at

deacon's picture

it would be

if you knew what you were talking about before talking
what you did,was,say she was wrong because of who made the statement
let me try again
america was founded as a republic.It is now a democracy.When the majority
votes and wins(it is mob rule)and it is because america changed to a democracy
Ben Franklin,you have a republic ma'am,if you can keep it
is this more clear?

If you knew what you were talking about

you'd know we don't have mob rule we are run and controlled by an Oligarchy, elites, I stick by my earlier comment, you both were misusing the term democracy. If we had mob rule we wouldn't be sending any foreign aid, because a vast majority of Americans are against it, yet 87 senators voted for it, so explain that?

Ohhhhh

If you go to Ron Paul's new business Ron paul institute and look at the profiles of the people he has hired as staff and advisors, you might reconsider what you just said, because that's who working for him.

What are your sources? I use wiki, people tell me wiki is no good. I'm open to new sources, I just figured the CIA world factbook was reliable as a source for information. I guess I could use the U.N. as a source? Would that be better?
