The DNC have become experts at keeping its member in-line and on-message.

Our Sen Casey is a great example of what you get when you vote for a Democrat......silence until re-election time and then a reliable liberal vote in a pinch.

What are you talking about, this administration is against our founders or their constitutional beliefs. e.g.>>

"It turns out our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change that I would like sometimes," --President Barack Obama

Greg, you're smarter than this. Democrats only fight for the rights that they think are in the constitution but really are not. They never defend the rights that are there with which they do not agree.

Inside your head.

“If they did, why are they still holding that office.”

Because they keep getting voted back into that office.

This is beating a dead horse. The Constitution was amended numerous times to effect change. Is this about guns, healthcare, or how are you being violated specifically?

"Where are the Democratic voices of protest as our President and his appointees go against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I've heard not a word from one Congressman/woman or Senator as to the assault on our freedoms. Are they representing their constituents or are they, whether blindly or under coercion, following the orders of their leaders? In other words, money for re-election and chairmanships, or outcast and irrelevant." - Gregory Weigle

Are you prepared (yet) to be a "little"-more SPECIFIC about whatever issue(s) you're referencing????

So far, you've (only) offered a generalized-rant...about nothing-in-particular.

Chuck asked - "Were is the voices of the right about the assault on government and rights and the Comnstituion by Republicans?"

I left the wonderful spelling and grammar as it was.

I'm sure Chuck is ready to provide examples of Republicans doing what he claims. Right Chuck? Point out a couple specifics that you are thinking of and how those examples "assault the Comnstitution"?

Voting rights, gay rights, reproductive rights. Free speech. Continued attack of grammer and spelling when it suits you.

R3wpublicans/conservatives do a lot of shady dealings. Some even get caught. Scooter Libby ring a bell. Conservatives just re-elected a disgraced Governor to run for a congresional seat. Conservatives are not the true bearers, the moral, the constituional bearers they claim. Before I forget let's not forget the disgraced Richard Nixon. Don't be telling us how awful liberals and Obama is, clean up your own filth.

Chuck - reading cue cards off your favorite Liberal website does not make a valid argument. Pick any of those buzzwords you listed and explain what was done and how it was unconstitutional.

I'll check back in a couple hours.

Scooter Libby did what exactly? He certainly did not expose a covert agent. That was someone named Armitage, if memory serves.

You're right Vince, the left always tries to blame Scooter but Armitage did the blabbing.

"Voting Rights" - What party was George Wallace affiliated with when he was running for president in 1968? What was his campaign platform? "Segregation Now!"

"Free Speech" - You mean like Dr. Ben Carson exercised a few weeks ago at some dinner where the president was? I don't remember Liberals standing up for his right to say what he did.

"Gay Rights" - What rights are excluded from Gays that others have? The right to marry? They have just as much right to marry as I do. I am a man and am free to marry any woman stupid enough to say yes. And any gay man can do the same exact thing.

Hello all.. I'm afraid the author has it backward. It is the vast majority of republicans who have sworn an oath to party, not country. It is in the form of the pledge they signed to grover norquist, under threat, no less.

We should let Chuckles alone about his lack of communication skills. After all, he's a perfect example of all that's wrong with our education system. He's college educated! Impossible to believe that he might have graduated. I firmly believe his alma mater is the Sam Houston Institute of Technology! Maybe, if he really DID graduate, the degree was from Cracker Jack University.

"President Barack Obama says he “felt the spirit of Jesus Christ” on a recent visit to Israel and it made this Easter particularly special for him."

Maybe there is hope!
