Barack Obama was ranked as the most liberal senator, based on his voting record.
I know folks like leftisbest and coldtype are probably saying,"So what?" right now because 'true evil' can only encorpulate in conservative republicans. Liberals are always good - in their minds.
The problem I have with the current liberal lineup is that the Liberal Movement has been hijacked. Liberals from the past who I respected; like JFK - were strong on defense, big on smaller government and genuinely wanted to help the middle class. Look at Kennedy's "Ask Not" speech....do you think anyone on the podium will ever give a speech that will be as memorable as JFK's?
Hardcore Marxism has infiltrated the Left. It is that simple.
The Left has adopted, consciously or not, the language of Marx and Lenin. Language is being censored. People are afraid to tell what they really think and feel out of fear of exile. University students who are conservative cannot air their beliefs to Liberal professors out of fear of receiving a lower grade. Class conflicts are being invented and fomented. Government is seen as a panacea and the nanny state keeps getting bigger and bigger. The government intrusion into our lives is getting more and more invasive.
So if you like winding down the road to Orwellian Totalitarianism, keep voting Democratic. As I posted back in July of 2007, Barack is an empty suit with nothing but platitudes to offer a desperate and hopeless voting base.
He wants to legalize marijuana, he wants to give drivers licenses to illegals and all he wants is big government to get bigger.
