How the Hell... ?
"Congratulations, you're a swing voter. When they say 'Soccer Mom', they mean you. Every Democratic ad on the TV set was made just for your viewing enjoyment. Don't you feel special?"
Now if only the Democrats could be convinced of the good of a few more of those things...
After all, many Democrats seem to want to take away a person's right to own a gun. It is one of the best civil liberties in existence.
Eric, you're the last person I would describe as "tax-and-spend". And I meant that as a compliment, haha.
Broad Street Hustla gets the "Commenter with the Coolest Name" award. Seriously.
I would agree, though, that Kerry probably would have tried to reinstate the Assault Weapons Ban had he won the presidency. And I did vote for him in a moment of weakness. For the office of President, I almost always have to consider who will take away the LEAST amount of civil liberties. That is an unfortunate reality for me.
I do still vote for Republicans with libertarian leanings. I wish there were more of them.
Now that's some serious leftism!
BTW, 60% "Nascar Dad" here. I don't watch Nascar and I'm not a Dad so go figure.
A 100% free market is a deviated incorrect and unfair market. Where the only law is the law of the jungle. And not all of us are chimps,we need regulations for a better living.
Anyway, i guess if some people believe in god, other can believe in the invisible hand...
And btw,I don't know why are you surprised to be a republican. That's rednecks.
The neo-classical economic model is backed up by mathematics. It's not as if its followers blindly follow some invisible hand theory that merely requires "faith". Does that make the free market perfect? No, and I never said it was. But I have yet to be convinced of a better model.
The new Post-Keynesian model is interesting, and is getting more sophisticated. I am open-minded to it. I was not impressed by the traditional Keynesian theory. I have also studied some Marxism. With no mathematical evidence to support it, Marxism definitely requires faith to believe.
I'll take that as a compliment.
Oh, and Tailgunner Joe can kiss my cute little commie-loving Euro ass.
