May I ask what are legitimate services govt provides or how you determine that?

I rely on the U.S. Constitution and then State govt's role for those. What do you use?

OK, but surely you can see that the story lacks any detail to make it relevant.

To you perhaps. There isn't much more detail anyway except that the socialist in the group convinced to go with Obama but this one kept it secret until now. My daughter tried to appeal to her regarding business being better off, since she was a marketing major. Now she sees it. Not only that they were also talking about the layoffs and the socialist social worker major, a loveable one, said those businesses were being greedy. ROFL

So you're into censorship? I just thought it was interesting. I'll choose what I want to talk about.
You don't have to read it if you don't want. K?

That's actually pretty amazing hearing that from you. I'm sure you know what censorship really is. But if editing yourself and occasionally having an unspoken/unwritten thought or experience is censorship, then, yes, I'm for it.

Who is going to fund a survey of over 62 million people?

It's part of the new Obama job creation program.

Thanks for admitting you support censorship. The left is all about censoring right-wing ideas, thoughts or experiences even if just casual conversation.

I think your error here is thinking that everything a person posts happens to be debate material or arguments. Sometimes people just chat or comment on their observations, experiences or own life.

I wouldn't expect you, of all people, to be able to discern the difference.

So when are you going to back up your lie on me predicting an electoral landslide by Romney?


I'm still waiting.

Economics: I'm gainfully employed, have been with my company for a touch over sixteen years. All of my friends are employed. We pretty much just worry that our taxes might be raised, or that the prices might go up on the things we buy often. Gas, food, household items. We don't think either candidate could do shit about most of that but we worry that Obama and the Democrats will raise our taxes. That's the end of my economic issues.


Social:

I have friends and relatives who are gay. I think it's ****ing retarded not to allow them to marry. There is no reason to deny them that. All I can do is raise my children well so that they can see how the small minded asssholes in power, or in the majority, continue to **** over people who are different from them. Hopefully I will have raised them well enough that their generation can overcome the cowardice and hate that still seems to plague the country on this issue.

Abortion is sometimes the only reasonable alternative. It would be nice if we could all agree with when that "sometimes" happens, but partisan bullshit and mind boggling idiocy won't allow that. I'm looking at you Mister A Woman Can't Get Pregnant From Rape. You're a ****ing disgrace to your third grade Science teacher. So we have to let it continue to be legal and allow the mother/doctor to make that decision. It can't be a political one because politicians are lying douchebags who don't give a shit about you.

Pot should be legal. Why? Because nicotine, caffeine and alcohol are. No medicinal value and high potential for addiction? No shit, really? Then change smokes/coffee/booze to schedule one drugs.

People come here from other countries, pretty much, for jobs. Give them legal resident alien status if they can provide proof of continuous employment. Proof in the form of taxes paid.Of course there is a lot of other shit that has to be done (there's good thread about it) but start with that.


Bottom line? A lot of people in this country need a giant cup of Shut The **** Up, It's None Of Your Business. Unless it has a real impact on your daily life it doesn't concern you.

Very well said. :clap:

And then there's abortions and gay marriage.

People can never really tell who has the best plan for the country. But they can tell when one guy wants to tell their gay friend that they can't get married and their friend who was raped that they should've been forced to keep the kid.

No one is in favor of forcing rape victims to keep the kid. Adoption is encouraged for any would-be mother who isn't up to he task for whatever reason.

2. Tea party. Their smug and/or angry attitudes and libertarian positions that fail to recognize the legitimate services that gov provides. Grover Norquist could go here or in 1.

I'm punishing the republican party by voting against everyone of their candidates (even ones I like) until they reclaim their party from these influences. It's not that we don't need entitlements reform. We desperately do. But with the current voices in charge of the republicans, we can't do that in a thoughtful, intelligent, and fair way.

Are you sure you can count?

Well, I drew the KnowMo conclusion myself, so that's not really taking anything at face value.
