Certain extremists have emerged from the depths like fiends from Hell and spewed obscenities into our otherwise rational language. Such negative terms (abortionists, socialists, racists, <slur removed>, fascists, <slurs removed>, rapists, incest, masturbation), and phrases ("I am not a witch, I Am You;" "I'll take you out;" " get some balls;" "man up;" "Obama Is A Muslim/Kenyan") are used by Tea Party adherents to influence our votes. If we elect these psychos, they will lead us to The Promised Land. You betcha, wink, wink.
I make it a priority when election time rolls around to NOT listen to any campaign jargin. From either parties.
Slurs have been around for as long as I can remember. My guess is they will be around as long as there is an election.
The tea party, dems, reps and independants alike all share the same goal, and that is to influence our vote. One is no better or worse than the other.
New Politics? I don't think so. Just more vocal/visible.
New generation? Maybe.
You're off on a good start, calling people psychos. Not.
P.S. You left out several phrases. Like "buck up", one of Obama's faves.
Oh that's right----you're only mocking conservatives I suppose!
wink wink back atcha.
I'm surprised to find myself in agreement with Brenda.
Responding to the name-callers with name-calling doesn't help.
