    OBJECTIVE reality
    [Parenthetical comment: it's been a rough three weeks, watching my mother-in-law get sick and pass away. That's why you haven't heard from me lately. But I'm back.]

    Okay, here's where I have objections to this:

    • They're being annoying little pissers by refering to the Democratic party as the Democrat party. But what do you expect from a bunch of Repubicans?
    • They also know damn well the Democrats aren't socialists, despite what Obama is doing to save the economy.
    What I don't mind is them doing is making a big deal about the word "socialism". If they go totally off the deep end and they succeed in this resolution, the end result will probably be the opposite of what they intend: they will make the country more comfortable with the word. After all, a majority of Americans feel the country is moving in the right direction. So by all means, let's associate that with "socialism" and remove the stigma from the word.

    You've got to love watching the GOP self-destruct!

    Someone send them an email and point out that it's called social democracy, and that sadly for the USA, the Democratic Party is certainly no Social Democratic Party.

    As an aside, if some in the Republican Party are attempting to rename their opponents, what should the Democratic Party rename the GOP?

    I fear the loss of the Republican party. Someone needs to bail them out soon.

    Wait, let's get this straight. They want to draft a resolution to rename another party? Well, they don't control the name of that party, so what they are drafting is a resolution to call another party a name.

    I think most of us grew out of this kind of behavior in elementary school.

    To the rest of the world, this obsession about "socialism" without the faintest idea of what the word actually means, just makes American conservatives into a laughing stock.

    Wow. They've really become unhinged. It's one thing to play along with Fox New(s) Hysteria, but quite another when you start believing it.

    [Sorry to hear about the rough time you've been having, Thomas. Be as supportive as you can for your wife over the next several years. I lost my mother-in-law 7 years ago to cancer, so I've been there.]

    TV, my sympathies to you and your wife and family. It's nice to see you back.

    On topic, didn't this Bopp guy get the memo? He's supposed to be calling the Democrats "fascists", not socialists:
    Sadly, it's just more name-calling (as a substitute for rational thought, of course ;) ) from the party of no ideas.

    Fear up folks!

    I have a feeling they'll be able to do it, all they really need to do to pull this off is torture a few key politicians and newsies.

    And when that doesn't work they become the Democrat Seditionists :rolleyes:

    This is the perfect example of just why the USA being a two-party state is such a terrible state of affairs. If the Democrats now eff up or become corruptly complacent where do the voters go?

    Does that mean we get to call the Republicans the "Republican Nazi Party"? I mean, if we really wanna get down to it and have them be honest with the American people. ;)

    LOL, unfortunately that means you lose the thread :p.

    Seriously the republicans have really lost the plot since Obama came to power.

    Forgot the sitcom references.

    The Republicans really jumped the shark when Cheney shot a guy in the face and he came out and apologized on tv.

    And Palin was a lot like introducing the no talent, but cute kid, in the "final season" ... they're so awful, but you tune in just to watch the stupidity of it all.

    They're a complete caricature already. They've got nothing to lose with cynical actions like this. We've had posters regurgitating such talking points ever since obama won.
