I have yet to meet a single liberal that thinks or talks alike but most conservatives act like brainwashed cloned sheep that hate sociology, philosophy, liberal arts, equality, multiculturalism, and progression.

All I know is the democratic party has recycled bad ideas and the republican party has no new ideas but wants to indoctrinate me at gun point. I’m trapped between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Obama had tried to be different and thrown money at things but everything he throws at the wall never sticks.

Obama 2012: The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Romney 2012: Regression, you can't teach an (G Old” P) dog new tricks.

~ Horace

The only way things change is if five hundred and thirty-five Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, and John Stossel fans take over congress.

I say this idiom a lot whenever I’m in a political discussion at the barbershop or at my local bar. I always get what does that mean response.
