    Two necessary steps to saving traditional America:
    1. Disenfranchise the negroes, best way is to ship most of them back to Africa, this is NOT racist, it was done all throughout American history: they were shipped back home to Senegal, Liberia and Sierra Leone from many different American countries including the USA.
    2. Disenfranchise women: most women have no idea about economics or political science and don’t really understand capitalism. Feminism is destroying the USA (and all Western countries) so it’s an emergency: feminism must be squelched completely.
    If you don’t do the above two steps YOU WILL LOSE YOUR REPUBLIC.
    You can delete this post and claim it’s racist or sexist but if you don’t wake up YOU WILL LOSE THE REPUBLIC. You have been warned.

      “save the conservative negroes”……..they have an active brain!

      • sagebrush6

        Both of them ?

    • Valerie Jean

      3. Disenfranchize the whites, best way is to ship most of them back to Europe. This is not racist, but it’s the only group that has not been exiled throughout American history. It’s only fair – maybe it’s their fault.
      4. Disenfranchise the men. Most men know nothing about leadership and don’t know how to break a sweat. Metrosexuality is destroying the USA and must be squelched.

        • Valerie Jean

          I apologize. I was trying to make a point and did it badly. My point being if we continue to divide ourselves into groups and sub-groups, that’s all we’ll ever be, splintered. We all have to figure out what our strength is and use it. If we started locally, speaking to any group we could (civic groups, church groups, Scout leadership groups, company training meetings) to explain and define and give examples of capitalism, free market, our history, etc we might be able to turn some of this around. We need articulate men and women willing to put themselves out there, risking being misunderstood, to speak locally. Not national venues, not state venues, local. Changing one person’s mind at a time. Anyway….

          • Remnant-of-the”D”

            Valerie Jean – Here is my suggestions to all those who would like to see American greatness return:

            1.First and foremost – be a good Christian in any way that you can be. Find a church home and be a part of it – not for yourself, but for you family and your community. If God is with us, who can be against us?

            2. Get married and stay married. No, it’s not “easy” and no one said it would be. It is very difficult and requires selfless conduct, lots of love and above all else HUMOR!
            3. Take your kids to Church and don’t let them attend public schools of any sort, unless or until they must attend university to aquire skills that they cannot gain any where else. ( also – by this time your child(ren) will be well rounded and understand the truth of being a Christian American). They will not be easily mis-guided by fools or subversives!
            4. Be a good example. Not for yourselves, but for everyone else you are around. Be kind, be Polite, what happened to “polite society” rather than “politically correct”? This is the single most damaging thing that has ever happened to our country (imho) anyway. So learn from it – practice what you preach. Because just like children – people learn from what they SEE not from what you SAY – Remember that!
            5. Educate yourselves! It is not someone else’s responsibility! Take Responsibility for your own actions, your own words, and your own deeds – own it – stand up for yourselves – you are not slaves of men – your are God’s children – and above all – remember the sacrifices of those great American’s that gave all for us!

          • $15774159

            I think you are a little confused.  My comment was not about shipping anyone back to Europe.  I was responding to Valerie, who said all Whites should be shipped back to Europe.  Please read the comment correctly.

        Whites have already been disenfranchised. For the last 4 yrs and now the next 4 years.

    • phunyfarm

      Oh sir, your #2 is so confusing to my little lady brain, please define feminism for me. Your #2 is dead on, but include all these miserable illegal aliens somehow
      Another IMPERATIVE step is prosecuting the guilty. If no one is made responsible for the long list of crimes against the American people, the offense continues unabated & will be repeated by countless others. Are we so afraid of our government we are too intimidated to act? If so, can we still call this AMERICA??
      I’m glad my grand parents are not alive to witness this horror.

    • 2War Abn Vet

      How about – disenfranchise the government dependents; those who contribute nothing, but thrive from the labors of others?

      • Remnant-of-the”D”

        Yes @2WarAbnVet:disqus – it is both unfair, and unethical to “generalize” all people like Wally did. I happen to be a woman – and I certainly do understand politics, and have never believed in “Feminazism” either! And, don’t disinfranchise all black citizens in this way either – it’s not true! Most black American’s are Christians! They are uneducated, and the Demoncrats will is to keep them so – they do not “help” people – they “control” people – when will American wake the hell up?

    • James Crawford

      Gee Wally, I don’t know about all that. Mom’s not gonna be happy with you. I think a man can still be a real man when he hangs out around independent women…provided God blessed him with SOME depth of character.

    • hal

      Stupid troll.you sound like a Muslim

    • ChillaKilla

      @ Wally, et al — Wow…. this is nothing less than the purest, most distilled form of Neanderthal thought process! It is precisely the stunted, oxygen-deficient minds of ‘men’ (if that definition applies here) like ‘wally,’ Ronald Hatt and johnsnare, who SHOULD bear the responsibility of, and be prosecuted, not only for the rise of ‘rabid feminism,’ but for the resentment that festers between races in this country. This type of thought belongs in the Altamira, Lascaux and Cosquer caves.

      I would not be at all afraid to bet on the possibility that these Troglodytes, who must be living in a cave commune, still use flint to start the fire that cooks their meals, and warms their miserable abode. Most surely, for lack of women –who no doubt must have discarded these pea-brained transitional humanoids for more highly evolved creatures– they are sure to provide the type of ‘late, late evening the entertainment’ for each other that makes profuse use of hands, as well as domesticated animals…. and not at all for the purpose of ‘cave painting.’

      I’ll take the liberty here to assume that such low level intellects as shown by ‘wally,’ Ronalld Hatt and johnsnare must belong to lib-trolls who would love to taint discussions like the one on this thread by posing as minimally evolved ‘righties.’

    • Public_Citizen

      If one is going to have a discussion based on voting blocks a fundamental question needs to be addressed with respect to the 18 to 25 year old voter without regard to sex, racial heritage, or any other criteria than age and mental development. That question being why are we allowing a demographic group to vote who do not, as a group, posses the requisite mental capacity to make rational and informed judgement on matters that affect every member of society?
      There are multiple peer-reviewed studies that document the development of the human brain. These studies have concluded that the human brain is not fully formed until about age 25. The point of full maturity occurring slightly earlier in the female and slightly later in the male. The last portions of the brain to mature are those dealing with risk assessment and long term judgement.
      Insurance companies and car rental agencies have known these facts for decades as demonstrated by actuarial tables and accident rates.
      Bottom line – why do we allow people who can’t rent a car and won’t be put in positions requiring judgement in private business to make critical decisions with respect to the public governance?

    Here here! Due to all of the above, people in 27 of the 50 states (not 57) are now signing petitions on wh.gov for their states to secede from the Union. If you like these, have a look at this one, that pretty much sums it up:

    “ERICKSON FOR PRESIDENT” THIS GUY REALLY “GETS IT”, & SAYS IT AS GOOD AS ANYONE OUT THERE. Question is: Is it too late for America to come back from economic, & moral “oblivion”? It will take the “youth” of America to do this. How will that be done, with the present trend of “Godlessness” in America? Where are the politicallly moral teachers? Where are the responsible parents, that are obligated to teach their children about a “supreme being”, & creation as laid out in the bible? I don’t want to live in a country that is “Godless”! C’mon conservatives/Republicans……”YOU” are our nation’s only hope!

    This is all the christians’ fault if we had put our foot down a long time ago this would not be happening….. we bought into “political correctness and tolerance” to faggots and the like and now we are paying for it. How do you like it now, how does taste now, someone said ” they have awaken a sleeping giant” (meaning christians) only to have our throats sliced and now we are bleeding out screaming and crying “why are you so mean”.

    Give me a break, christians are the weakest, dumbest, fragile little animals there are. They say they believe but they don’t , christians need to be more like Peter when he cut the ear off the sorry SOB that had his hands on Jesus. Well, they have him again and they are primed for a full attack all over again. And what will the christian do……oh, lets pray for a new america and a new president……….. lets not make to much noise or cause someone some grief…….lets just pray about it……..PLEASE!!!!!!!

    We need to get in the streets and take back America and take a stand for morality in our cities and take down these sorry excuses for human beings and fight against the sorry SOBs.

    Even the bible tells us to stand doing all that we can to stand tough.

    Eph 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, relying on his mighty strength.

    Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the devil’s strategies.

    Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against human opponents, but against rulers, authorities, cosmic powers in the darkness around us, and evil spiritual forces in the heavenly realm.

    Eph 6:13 For this reason, take up the whole armor of God so that you may be able to take a stand whenever evil comes. And when you have done everything you could, you will be able to stand firm.

    Eph 6:14 Stand firm, therefore, having fastened the belt of truth around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

    Eph 6:15 and being firm-footed in the gospel of peace.

    Eph 6:16 In addition to having clothed yourselves with these things, having taken up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to put out all the flaming arrows of the evil one,

    Eph 6:17 also take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

    Eph 6:18 Pray in the Spirit at all times with every kind of prayer and request. Likewise, be alert with your most diligent efforts and pray for all the saints.

    Eph 6:19 Pray also for me, so that, when I begin to speak, the right words will come to me. Then I will boldly make known the secret of the gospel,

    It’s time crybabies it’s time now…..

    I am convinced that liberalism is a religion in which the lie that a secular socialist utopia is best must be protected at all costs by its members.

    My 2 political laws mesh with that premise well.



    LAW 1:
    All the national democrats have are distractions, bold lies, demons and smears to push or protect their utopian secular socialist policies.
    (toxic policies demand these tactics so they NATURALLY MUST use them daily.)

    LAW 2:
    The national democrats (aka secular socialists) have no ethical or moral boundaries.
    (so you should never be shocked by what they NATURALLY MUST say or do)

    BO castigated his white grandmother as a racist for feeling trepidation and possible danger at seeing a young black gang-banger coming toward her. So what does he designate the black inner city grandmothers afraid to leave home at night for fear of being mugged by young black gang members?

    OHHHHH. Yeah. The white is racist but the same opinions and behaviors in a black are reasonable and intelligent. This is the same reasoning any intelligent black with adequate income moves into a gated rich folks development (Jesse Jackson) and it’s just fine but a wealthy Romney does it and he’s selfish and greedy.

    The lunatics are not only running the asylum but like Hitler’s adoring audiences—have taken over the country.

    I work all year and cannot afford a vacation. So, how is it social justice that the female baboon living in the White House, who has never worked a day in her life, can take several $1 million dollar vacations a year? To make matters worse, I have to pay for some of it. In fact it would take about 60-80 middle class taxpayers to provide enough funds for one of her vacations. In addition, she destroys the image of the US every time she goes somewhere. What an embarrassment for our great country.
    How is this social justice working for you?

  • wisewoman

    “(We need Divine intervention)”
    I think we already HAVE Divine intervention: Read where it says in the Bible the times when “God gave them over to….”, and the result was always the same. In the end the people turned back to God and asked Him for divine intervention. Out of the goodness that He is He forgave them their sins and (not without pain) helped them right their world. The only way He was able to get their attention was to let them go their own way and let them pay the price until they realized that God’s ways are far better than ours.
    So many of the problems that we have today we can trace right back to disobedience to God’s commands. When my children were little I would say to them, “If you do that then you will…..” How child-like we are.

    one problem is the fact the obama’s refuse to admit,black people in africa are the ones who kidnapped and sold other blacks into slavery.listen to obama’s wife and you will think America started slavery.slavery of africans was happening in the past before we ever became a nation.i wouldn’t be surprised if michelle obama’s own relatives helped in the slavery of her own people.just a thought.besides,our clinging to our Bibles and guns will show the government you (ain’t) messing with arabs,were Americans.also,notice obama said (OUR) Bibles.i thought he was a christian,yeh right.just like hitler.i bow my knee to know one except Christ the Lord.btw,we kicked out the true King ,so God gave us this stooge.he isn’t the first out of a long line of stooges we have had for presidents but he probably will be the last.obama is just a stooge.he has become a legend,but only in his mind

    1. Destroy patriotism
    2. Introduce homosexuality as a civil rights issue, and infiltrate the education, literary,entertainment segments, and flood us with porn and advance all this as fun, healthy and good!
    3. Destroy the family unit, by gov give-a-ways, and by #2.
    They will then die from within and we take over as we can’t beat them in industry nor by war, so this way we prevail!

    Well have far has his goals been accomplished? What have his loyal followers attained?

      dave aka. Every time I see mention of Poison obumbler being “Black”, I always think the writer uses that description in the manner you would if you were talking about an American born Black.

      I doubt 10% of the obumbler lovers even question what he is, or know who he is.

      IF O.B. Senior IS his father, (The Jury isn’t out on that, they just refuse to consider the birth place, or citizenship) that makes obumbler, in his blood lines, 50% White, just over 6% AFRICAN Black, and the rest? ARAB.

      He has no up bringing in America, no proper American Black religion back ground, in his early years, so in the American definition, he ISN’T American Black.

      He gets a pass by all Black voters, who identify with their own legitimate American Black Ancestors, and include obumbler in that category. Sad.

    We have have become Euro_Trash, AGAIN¿!¡

    0mommy has been JESUS, to the Heathen of Euro, for 3 years now.

    On December 28, 2009 the Danish newspaper Politiken published an editorial “Obama Greater Than Jesus” proclaiming Obama ““the practical savior of our times.””
    In her article, “I Will Follow Him’: Obama as My Personal Jesus,” Maggie Mertens, Associate editor of Smith College’s The Sophian, wrote, ““Yes, I just said it. Obama is my Jesus…. I’ve officially been saved, and soon, whether they like it or not, the rest of the country will be too…. In the name of Obama, amen.”” ” [9-18-08]

    So, we see a case of causeless, self-destructive hatred. This senseless and absolutely irrational self-hatred could be explained by only one thing: the suicide syndrome characteristic of cultures in their last stage of dying. In lack of ideals, vital forces, and even instinct of self-preservation they surrender themselves to barbarians, with flattering and even masochistic humility give themselves up to rough and despotic conquerors.

    I get SCREAMED AT A LOT, FOR CUTTING AND PASTING. That, I am incapable of having an original thought.
    Why dictatorships are always bad
    The short answer is that there’s no accountability.  One man controls a whole country.  He decides how the government is run.  He decides how the courts will decide cases.  He decides the country’s immigration and emigration policies.  He decides how people in his country will live their lives.  He decides when, where, and how every company will do business.  He decides whether people who disagree with him will live or die.  

    In extreme cases, a dictator will sometimes satisfy his own sexual urges with another man’s wife or children.

    Aristotle stated that both Barbarians and those that have been enslaved lack the mechinism for self rule. I say, Barbarians by nature lack the ability for self rule and the enslaved by the very nature of being enslaved. Thats why the minorities and the progressive democrats seem to be a match made in Hell.
