RULES GOVERNING THE dA POLITICAL FORUM CLUB
I. The Constitution
II. The Rules of Engagement
August 09, 2007--
Corporations are not people. Money is not speech. This is the end of democracy. Politicians are for sale. The wealthy are taking over our government. Plutocracy, oligarchy, kleptocracy, corporatocracy, neo-feudalism, 1% vs 99%, and fire and brimstone coming down from the skies. Rivers and seas boiling. Forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, and mass hysteria!

Mike Malloy: Limbaugh Is Teh Ebil!When you think of someone evil, who is the first person who comes to mind? Hitler? Stalin? Bin Laden? Kim Jung Ill? Gadhafi?Mike Malloy: Limbaugh Is Teh Ebil! by BlameThe1st
Well to the unhinged hate radio host Mike Malloy, the person who best represents evil personified is…Rush Limbaugh! (Shocking, I know!)
I'm no fan of the neocon Limbaugh, but I wouldn't go so far as to call him evil, especially when there are far more evil people out there. (If you're lost on who, please refer to my list above.)
VIDEO: Epic Libtalk Anti-Limbaugh MeltdownBut this son of a bitch personifies - if ever evil could be rolled into a huge fat mass, this is it! This guy, this Limbaugh, this is one of the most vile human beings ever to live! If Limbaugh had the power, he would open gas chambers! If Limbaugh had the power, he would line up people up against the wall and execute them! If Limbaugh had the power, he would destroy childr
Underfunded Schools? Explain This Sports Stadium!Underfunded Schools? Explain This Sports Stadium! by BlameThe1st
The prevalent myth about our public schools is that they are underfunded. This myth flies in the face of reality when you consider that our country spends more on education per student than any other nation except Switzerland.
This myth especially crumbles when you consider schools such as Allen High School in Texas. The school had enough money—exactly $60 million!—to blow on an 18,000 seat high school football stadium. What’s worse is that the stadium recently shut down—only 18 months after opening!—due to "extensive cracking."
Our schools are underfunded, and yet this school flushed $60 million in taxpayer money down the toilet over a

In for a PoundI’m sure we’re all quite familiar with the name of Ezra PoundIn for a Pound by Skargill
The bloke that despite being quite clever had thoughts unsound
They say he was the father of several movements poetic
A pity that he succumbed to an ideology hateful and despotic
He’s heavily associated with verse that stimulates imagery
But then followed that up with publishing anti-Semitic forgeries
He witness the Great War that slaughtered many and spare too few
And somehow concluded that the best solution was to crush the Jew
When war in Europe look to be making a come back
Dear Ezra, clever so very clever Ezra gladly bought a new shirt in darkest black
America had never really appreciated the Herald of Imagism
But he found a home, in Rome marching in the Vanguard of Fascism
After that war did clever Ezra finally learn his lesson?
Sadly not, it appears his mind had suffered an irreversible recession.
He publicly abandoned his past acts, but this surface supplication
Was a fraud, for one of his new frien
Anti-Libertarian Cognitive DissonanceI’m currently working on new videos for my Anti-Libertarians Can’t Think playlist, and I’m considering writing an essay debunking some common anti-libertarian arguments.Anti-Libertarian Cognitive Dissonance by BlameThe1st
You can tell I’m in a very anti-libertarian mood, possibly because I’ve been inundated with so many anti-libertarian arguments from anti-libertarian screeds.
Anti-libertarian arguments are like the brooms from Fantasia: they’re easy to chop into bits, but they only keep coming back in droves. They just won’t stay dead!
But there’s one especially egregious argument that I keep running into, and it makes me wish I could simply kill it with fire and be done with it.
Anti-libertarian statists often ask why there haven’t been any libertarian societies. Salon’s Michael Lind once posed
Petition- Please take a look.I wrote a petition to my nation's Prime Minister, asking for one simple concession: To allow minor political parties to be given a voice in the legislature. After all, the point of a political party is to unite with other people of the same ideology to show that you believe in it. So, it's defeating the point to have a bloc of parties tha do the same thing and stifle other, more radical parties and keep them from having a say-and whether of the left or right wings, in my opinion, that is infringing on freedom of speech, and I won't stand for it.Petition- Please take a look. by ComradeSch
If you agree, sign my petition, and allow voting for minor parties, so the Canadian House of Commons can truly represent all Canadians, however moderate or extreme they are.

Self Absorbed in the Political ForumHaving been labelled as being 'self absorbed' on the politics forum lately, I feel I ought to at least practice the crime I am accused of. Here are some of my personal highlights from that part of my life from the past few seasons.Self Absorbed in the Political Forum by AbCat
On libertarianism: "I'm simply pointing out the potential for evil in such an environment. Evil is a misrepresentation of most political movements, however in libertarian society there is no denying the wiggle-room for evil becomes more of a wiggle-hall - a veritable jazz ballroom of evil bebopping." http://comments.deviantart.com/18/1857550/3035735815

Guys, PLEASE know the difference... TL;DR version: I have a lot of politically active friends (both on this sight, and off of it) that believe minarchism = anarcho-capitalism. Truth is, that is simply not the case.Guys, PLEASE know the difference... by ReXspec
To quote the wiki, " Anarcho-capitalism advocates abolishing the state. Minarchism has been variously defined by sources. In the strictest sense, it is the political philosophy which maintains that the state is necessary and that its only legitimate function is the protection of individuals from
Soavist: People, Party and StateThe people do not owe anything to the state or to the party to which runs said state, the only thing the people owe themselves to is each other.Soavist: People, Party and State by ShadowsOfAVorlon
It should be the job of the state to look after the people within its borders- irregardless of cultural, sexual, social, ethical, religious or political identity. The state needs to maintain a non-discriminatory attitude towards its people, and as such should the party that runs the state. Discrimination based upon prejudices on cultural, sexual, social, ethical, religious or political designation of the individual, are futile, immature and ultimately self defeating. A political organisation that is based solely on these foundations is doomed to fail, and likely through fire and blood will its repugnant nature be dispelled from influence, this fire and blood I speak of will likely not be through means of the state, but in fact its people- for discrimination is a means of oppression, second class ship and in that can easily lead to death, be it
In Defense of VotingIn Defense of Voting by BullMoose1912
Voting is easy and marginally useful, but it is a poor substitute for democracy, which requires direct action by concerned citizens.
Many Americans have a great distrust of elected officials. This is why many politicians claim that they are not "Washington Insiders" or something similar, in an attempt at populist appeal. This still does not result in large turnouts at the polls, but the sentiment is one that would appeal to many Americans both on the Right and Left, many of whom have significant qualms with both the Republicans and Democrats. This sentiment has grown especially strong with the advent of Occupy. While the Tea Party put much of their emphasis on electing sympathetic officials, Occupy has not done that because of various reasons including fear of co-option, a desire to include people of many political ideologies, and most importantly, because many Occupiers believe that the entire system is corrupt and that voting will make little di
Top 11 Disturbing 911 Comments10 years have passed since one of the worst attacks on American soil since Pearl Harbor. Many words have been said of that fateful day when nearly three thousand innocent Americans lost their lives at the hands of radical extremistsa day which remains forever etched within the minds of millions, many of which lost loved ones on that daya reminder that, even in a free country such as our own, no one is truly safe from evil.Top 11 Disturbing 911 Comments by BlameThe1st
Many words have expressed the grief and sorrow Americans feel even to this day, and the hope that a better future lies upon the horizon, even in the darkest of times. Many more words, however, have dishonored and disrespected those lives lost in rhetoric that seeks to divide rather than unite, whether it be the far-left inciting hatred to bash America or the far-right inciting fear in order to trade liberty for security, whether it be "truthers" spreading conspiracy theories or Isamaphobes spreading blind bigotry.

The Presidents: Zachary TaylorThe Presidents: Zachary Taylor by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
By the 1840s it was clear to many Americans that slavery was becoming a major issue. This issue would need an extraordinary president to settle all the arguing and make a decision that everyone would have to agree with. The people hoped that Zachary Taylor would be a good choice. Taylor's father had been an aide to George Washington in the American Revolution. Taylor grew up in Kentucky on a very prosperous plantation. By 1808 he was an officer in the military. The slovenly Taylor was generally a bad speaker and he never registered to vote and did not even vote in his own election. As a general, Taylor gained major fame from the Mexican-American War. After becoming a celebrity, both parties came to him and asked him to be their candidate. Taylor decided to join the Whig Party.
The Presidential Election of 1848
In the 1848 Whig race for nomination, Zachary Taylor defeated his own superior officer who had been in overall command of the U.S. Army during the war
The Presidents: James K. PolkThe Presidents: James K. Polk by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
James Knox Polk is not remembered well by many people today. Even at the time he ran for president, no one thought he would amount to much. He was short in stature and not very a social person. However, he would rise to become one of the most successful and underrated presidents in American history. The actions he took would change the shape of the United States forever and set the country and its people on a new course. Polk was born on November 2, 1795, into a southern family of Scottish heritage that had settled in North Carolina. When he was ten, Polk's family moved to Tennessee where they built a plantation and owned slaves. As a teenager, Polk had to deal with a health problem that was eventually found out to be urinary stones when he was seventeen. He had to go through a highly risky and painful surgery that damaged his sexual function, but it saved his life. Polk went on to college at the University of North Carolina where he specialized in un
The Presidents: John TylerThe Presidents: John Tyler by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
John Tyler would be the first president to gain the office without an election. He took the oath of office two days after the death of William Henry Harrison. He was a lawyer and experienced politician, but as president he would find that his own agenda would be his downfall. Tyler was born in 1790, he was part of a wealthy family from Virginia. Tyler would graduate from William and Mary College and would enter Virginia's House of Delegates in 1811. He became very experienced in politics as he served in the House of Representatives and as governor of his home state. Tyler was a slave-owner and strongly supported states' rights. He was a Jeffersonian in terms of ideology and like Thomas Jefferson, he was against a strong federal government but he would also expand the federal government.

US Politics 101What are politics and why should I care?US Politics 101 by 8manderz8
Politics, simply put, are used by communities to make decisions on how the community should be run. Politics are about making agreements, and dealing with the ways that our governments make and uphold laws.
The reason we should care about politics is because the decisions that politicians make affect our lives, and the lives of those around us. The decisions made touch upon everything important to us as people - from basic human rights such as freedom of thought and religion, to our environment, our security, and war.
With so much hanging in the balance, it's worth caring about!
Okay, but why should I vote?
The United States is a federal republic, meaning that it is a federation of states with a republican form of government. It has no king, queen or other monarch, and the people are sovereign, or able to choose leaders to represent them.
As a citizen of the United States (or any other free country),
Wait a Min.. What?Pennsylvania. It's the cradle of American democracy. Philadelphia. Gettysburg. Hershey. The capitol building at Harrisburg is considered one of the two most beautiful state buildings in the entire country. And today in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, Judge Robin (Robert) Simpson agreed to deny voters their right to vote if they could not afford to obtain a photo identification prior to election.Wait a Min.. What? by katiejo911
Currently voters must either show a valid driver's license, military id or passport in order to vote in Pennsylvania. And here's the clincher: they have to pay for it. This makes the requirement the equivalent of a poll tax, something outlawed by the 24th Amendment January 23, 1964. The unconstitutionality of forcing citizens to pay fees in order to vote is written clearly, yet Judge Simpson decided it was not a burden on enough voters. The problem is, there should not be a burden on ANY voter
Defending Free Market CapitalismDefending Free Market Capitalism by Titanicfan1000
I have always been a strong capitalist. I feel that it is the greatest economic system that can help people in every country. However, we have recently lost touch with this brilliant system. Terrible economic movements like Occupy Wall Street are trying to degrade the system. Also, communism and socialism have been on the rise again lately and we cannot have these failed economic systems take over the world. Why? Because they have failed and should never return. The USSR no longer exists and China and Vietnam are just terrible countries that are going to have a workers revolutions for better rights eventually.
What is Free Market Capitalism
What is free market capitalism? Capitalism is an economic system in which trade and industry is privately owned for profit. Now you know what capitalism is. What is a free market? A free market is an economic system in which there is little or no restrictions for private industry. Thus, they would be able to generally profit the most un
The Presidents: Andrew JacksonThe Presidents: Andrew Jackson by Titanicfan1000
Introduction and Early Life
Andrew Jackson believed that he was a Jeffersonian. Thomas Jefferson called Jackson a dangerous man. Jackson was different that most of the previous presidents and he would prove it in the White House. Jackson was born in 1767 just a few weeks after his father's death. By the time Jackson was 15, he had a taste for war and his two elder brothers and mother were all dead. Jackson eventually became a lawyer and entered a successful career taking land and slaves. Jackson then had success as a general. In addition to the Battle of New Orleans, he had defeated Native Americans in the territories and invaded and occupied Spanish Florida. After the war, Jackson became a senator for Tennessee in 1823, just before the 1824 presidential election that he believed was stolen from him by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay. He had his revenge in 1828 and became president. Many people saw Andrew Jackson as someone who connected with the common man and a person who would stan
