scroll down to her 4 minute response to all the furor over this - I don't have a problem with the idea of Trump's "America First", which she does some expanding, or if you prefer, backpedaling, on in the follow up

uh oh - am I a Nazi? if so, maybe Foggy will give me a tip of the cap that I could still be a courageous soldier? :lol:

Great soundbite. Zero substance.

Can you provide an example that supports this claim?

I have a degree in Econ. We studied;

Adam Smith - Free Market Capitalism (invisible hand and whatnot)
Karl Marx - Communism (the theory not how it has been applied)
Milton Friedman - Libertarianism (the laughing stock of econ)
Friedrich Hayek - Austrian School (even the Austrians want nothing to do with it)
John Maynard Keynes - Keynesian Economics (what most developed nations practice in one form or another)

Not sure what constitutes liberal propaganda.

agreed - this needs some explaining from her, and I don't see any response from the Owens camp - holding out hope that she has an explanation somewhere.

I'd rather not give her the view. And she should have backpedaled. If her argument is "that's not what I meant" then I most definitely buy that. But that's not what she said... and she does this frequently. She speaks in sound bites and often times doesn't seem to know what the words coming out of her mouth mean. That's because she's an opportunist and a money grabber.

Enough about Candace Owens... are we going to talk election fraud in this election thread or what?

The fact is the only group actively engaging in voter suppression is in GOP led states. FL and TX being the two most significant.

It is pretty clear Republicans believe they are in the minority in this country. Why else would they work so hard to suppress American's votes?

The explanation is this -- "If I acknowledge I went through racial discrimination then Fox News won't bring me on anymore... and they pay me money to say things the way I'm saying them now."

She's a liar. Period.

can you just drop it, bud? it's a privilege that we have voting rights

this is really, really old - can you just stop it

you look so small I can barely see you when you keep on with this sh*t - we are so privileged, blessed, whatever the hell, to have voting rights - we should take them seriously or not freaking vote

maybe if voting is not as easy as going to the can we'd take it more seriously

not a partisan issue

More voter suppression in NC.

The local law enforcement types just pepper sprayed a line of people waiting to vote. In a predominantly democratic county.

And police wonder why more and more people dislike them.

I don't know. Omar sure is worried about what's going to happen. You guys should have wanted voter ID if only to stop Trump from bringing fraud up as an issue.

Damn right. Watch the trump camp do their level best to deny ANY votes they assume are not for them being counted...get your popcorn ready

Since college is dominated by the left outside of most of the sciences, what's going to be the outcome in the voting booths for those in or just out of college?
So what went wrong with all those college educated Conservatives, half of Congress, all of our Republican presidents, so many of the people running American businesses? Did the Liberal propaganda machine miss all of them or, gee, is that just a myth created by the Conservative propaganda machine?

Hitler was a courageous soldier in World War ONE. He was a corporal, a battlefield courier, was wounded in action, recovered from his injuries in an age when medicine was primitive, and promptly returned to action. Later, he was in many violent and bloody brawls in the beer halls of Germany as he led the rise of the National Socialist Party, fighting the communists.

Did you do anything like that, ventura? If so, tip of the cap. But you gotta earn it, like Hitler did.

Trump, as you know, paid a doctor to say he had bone spurs so he wouldn't have to serve in Vietnam. Have you seen the cowardly reaction he had when they brought a bald eagle into his office? It's a YouTube.
I hope y'all are still wearing your seat belts!
