We have long suspected that Liberals thumbed their collective noses at the average man. Now several of them admit as much. [i]Disclaimer: All liberal philosophy is for educational purposes only. It has no bearing in reality. Reader beware.[/i] [url]http://www.democraticunderground.com/cgi-bin/duforum/duboard.cgi?az=show_thread&om=36701&forum=DCForumID35[/url]

Wellll, the jerk-off gets an 'A' for candor. Anyone who wants to talk with Bill Clinton for 5 hours gets an 'I' for idiot. Maybe the best news is that he wants a plane ticket to Canada and since he lives in NY that oughta be cheap !!

This does beg an interesting question. Is the conflict in American politics between the right and the left? Or is the conflict in America between the elitists and the populists?

Quote from Mopaul on DU [b] its a shame that the citizens are so divided into two opposing camps. if it gets more polarized, we should soon expect civil war.[/b] That should be no contest. None of them have guns. edited to say: Seriously, I believe the conflict is between the indoctrinated and the unindoctrinated. - I believe that they've had the common sense educated right out of them. BTW: Go Mark Martin - [BD]

HAHAHAHAHA. That's a hoot! I believe that if it ever came down to something like "civil war" (which it won't), I suspect that many Liberals would quickly reconsider their stance on the 2nd Amendment. What was the old adage? "A Liberal is a Conservative who hasn't been mugged yet." (Edited for correct Tense}

Liberals have minds? Since when? [?]

The mass of these socialist folks are cowards led by a dictator. Now saying that and reading this socialism has a foot hold in America that is probably here to stay. (Sorry to say) OUR COUNTRY WAS NOT FOUNDED BY SOCIALISTS!

You forgot the corollary: "A Liberal is a Conservative that spent a night in jail."

5sbslr5, Yes, there is a real difference. Both major parties are comprised of both elitist and populist elements. For instance, the elite faction within the Democratic party is represented by Robert Reich and his Caynesian (sp?) macroeconomic policies while the populist faction generally tends to be the unions and the "Reagan Democrats". The Republicans likewise have their elitist camp known as the Rockefeller Wing of the party. They also have their populist wing in the religious right. The fight over the results of the last presidential election was an elitist / populist split. The populists screamed "every vote must count" and "one man / one vote!" The elitists appealed to the framer's aristocratic distrust of the unwashed masses as embodied in the Electoral College and the Rule of Law. I think that I am a bit of an elitist. I'd rather have constitutional scholars interpret the 2nd Amendment than a hoard of estrogenical harpies (say a Million Moms or so). [BD]
