The creators of this actually have some talent. The timing for the text, visuals and music was excellent. Too bad they waste it on mindless propaganda instead of some worthwhile entertainment.

Tell me, when you "defeat" Socialism, what do you plan to do with us Socialists that remain?

Personally, I'd prefer a video with more actual meaning and significance :)

The same fighters that stated unequivically that he would NEVER get elected in the first place?

Might as well get used to the guy. He's gonna do the full 8. The pendulum is always swinging though. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

The GOP needs someone the people can get behind. Right now, it's in such a disarray it will take a miracle for them to even get on the same page with themselves much less the moderates and independants that actually decide. I'm sure they will get back in eventually. As I said, the pendulum always swings. But I don't think, miracles notwithstanding, it will happen before the next presidential election cycle.

Considering you will no longer be able to mooch off of anyone, you will probably just die from hunger after a couple of weeks.

Haha - sounds like it's advertising a movie . . . when's it showing in theaters? I want to see more.

But I didn't vote for him - so I'm not shocked or surprised. I guess this video is then only geared towards disenfranchised Obama-supporters.

What do you think we do now?

Someone needs to get more information about Socialism beyond 1940's infomercials.

I keep telling everyone that the only reason why most Americans so strongly disapprove of Socialism-like-support and so on is because we weren't born into and it wasn't ingrained in us as a value. Thus, it goes against what we believe in.

But no one's listening to me these days. :(

Hard to listen to you over the interwebs. But I agree with your assessment.

This was awsome! It gave me a thrill up my leg much like Mathews describes when he hears Obama speak.
Seriously, I loved it and got goose bumps. I'd like to see this played all over TV. Think MSNBC would run it?
I have a question though, since it was focused on the HC and nothing current, does that mean it's been around a while and just didn't get any play time?

Yeah - how'd it get 3 million views and we're just now hearing about it on our blessed and supposedly well informed DP?

You're correct and I thank God I was born in a country where I am free.I thank God for our military who fight to keep us free. It's too bad our freedoms are being eroded away from inside our own borders and directly from the WH.

Sadly, this is true. And far too many will actually buy into this nonsense. Of course, one is too many.

Our freedoms have been eroding away for a while. Why people think this is just starting is beyond me.

The same was said about Bush Corp. if you remember. Patriot act. Phone taps. Free speech zones.

As for myself, I have as many freedom's today as I have ever had. Except the freedom to bang a lotta young chicks. My wife took that freedom away. LOL!

I had to watch this link for the comic value I knew it would have.

Funny thing...at the 2:20 mark its talking about the economic downfall.....and the graph shows high productivity until 2000 when...hmmmmm...who took over....and then 8 straight years of negatives on economic growth.

Care to explain that graph in your right-wing propoganda Navy? How does that support your premise here?

Hmmmmm....seems you sat kinda quietly on your ass during those 8 years....would you agree?

Well, believe it or not - like it or not. The full effect of Congress' and the President's actions are often delayed. The effects (good or bad) aren't always felt *immediately* - it takes time for things to fully evolve and effect every other aspect of the economy.

By the point a bad decision has it's full disasterous consequences a new president is in office - to take the blame.

The Healthcare Bill, for example, will be pulling in a surplus - which will be a good thing for a while (for the government's spending spree). But over the next 20 years, as more people *use* their benefits and their input remains stagnant it will begin to require that the *government* pay money back into it - it will be in deficit.

Who will be president in 20/30 years? *That President* will get the bad rap.
