Les libéraux ne sont pas pour la liberté Économie En Citations Philosophie

H. L. Mencken

Le journaliste, linguiste, satiriste, critique social et libre penseur H. L. Mencken (1880-1956), considéré par plusieurs comme l’un des écrivains américains les plus influents du XXe siècle, au sujet de l’idéologie gauchiste (page 35):

« The Liberals, who pretend – and often quite honestly believe – that they are hot for liberty. They never really are.

If a law were passed tomorrow taking away the property of a large group of presumably well-to-do persons – say, the bond-holders of the railroads – without compensation and even without colorable reason, they would not oppose it; they would be in favor of it.

The liberty to have and to hold property is not one that they recognize. They believe only in the liberty to envy, hate and loot the man who has it. »

Rétablir la santé mentale ? En Images En Vidéos États-Unis Gauchistan

Aperçu dans la foule rassemblée par Jon Stewart:

Insane

Présent sur la scène de cet événement qui se voulait une célébration de la santé mentale: Yusuf Islam aka Cat Stevens.  Rappelons que Yusuf Islam s’est rendu célèbre il y a quelques années pour avoir donné son appui à la fatwa du régime iranien dirigé contre l’écrivain Salman Rushdie

Voici un topo de ReasonTV réalisé avec des gens qui étaient présents pour cette manifestation:

Reason.tv was on hand for the Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear hosted by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert at the National Mall in Washington on Saturday, October 30, 2010.

The crowd was huge, the weather fine, the signs memorable, and the people…well, let’s just say they were there too. Some were apolitical and just out for a fun day, some were big fans of Comedy Central’s best-known personalities, some were inadvertent dadaists, and more than a few defined sanity strictly in terms of heartily agreeing with themselves.

Democrats getting outspent? Not so fast
Politico

To hear top Democrats tell it, the party is being wildly outgunned this year in the fight for campaign cash as Republicans rely on outside groups to funnel money to GOP contenders.

But the numbers tell a different story.

So far, the latest figures show that the Democratic Party machinery has outraised its Republican counterpart in this campaign cycle by almost $270 million. And even when outside spending on television advertising and direct mail is added to the mix, Republicans still haven’t closed the gap.

The money race totals come to $856 million for the Democratic committees and their aligned outside groups, compared to $677 for their Republican adversaries, based on figures compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

In 2006, the parties’ positions were essentially reversed: Republican Party committees raised nearly $800 million compared to $600 million collected by their Democratic adversaries, and the GOP incumbents entered the cycle with their own brimming war chests. The Republicans still wound up losing their House majority.
