1a. How do you trust a liar?

"Why are affirmative action programs applicable to recent immigrants if the whole purpose of the programs is to provide redress for American wrongs?"

That goes for any politician. Really though for most people TEAM trumps principles.

McCallum, 31, who was born a male, openly identifies as a female and whose legal name is Dana Contreras, was charged Jan. 29 with five felonies, including three counts of spousal rape, one count of false imprisonment and one count of domestic violence,


The big tent party.

I don't know. For the most part, I trust that Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul are telling me the truth as they see it.

Add one more question to ask making eleven:
Why do you call yourself a liberal, when you clearly are NOT?
Then get them to define it and provide examples of real liberals. Men like Madison, Jefferson etc.

It's a slow morning.

10. How many people should we let into this country?

My answer is the same as a conservative's: as many as sensible, immigration law would allow.

9. How are rules that apply equally to everyone discriminatory and racist?

It depends on the "rule," of course.

8. How are rules that only apply to one group of people not discriminatory and racist?

It depends on the rule, of course.

7. Do you know what a pyramid scheme is?

Yes.

6. Why is it okay to kill unborn children but wrong to kill convicted murderers?

It's not okay, it's just better policy than forcing women to bear children they don't want.

And not all convicted murderers put to death were the actual murderers.

5. How does stagnating growth stimulate the economy?

It generally doesn't.

4. Does it make sense to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result?

It generally doesn't.

3. How will punishing law-abiding people stop criminals from breaking the law?

It would depend what we're talking about.

2. How can you count to ten if you skip the number two?

Poorly.

1. Why was George W. Bush a bad President but Barack Obama is a good one?

It would depend what you mean by "good President" and "bad President." I'm assuming you mean "good presidency" versus "bad presidency."

I think with two god awful wars that dragged on for a decade-plus each, and an economy crash on a comparable scale to the Great Depression make George W. Bush a bad President. You can even throw 9/11 in there if you want, but those first three make his presidency an unequivocally bad one.

Obama's isn't over yet, but I'd say his term will be a mixed one. His first two years were strong, but the remaining six of his eight years in office were stagnated by an opposition party that refused to negotiate with him unless the fate of the planet's economy was at risk. I don't know what you call that, good or bad, but hey, I didn't write the question.

You didn't answer any of those 3 questions.

10. How many people should we let into this country?

All who wants to come in. We are a nation of immigrants. Diversity makes us better. We should grant them citizenship, voting rights, drivers' licenses, and entitlements immediately. To be in America is to be an American.

9. How are rules that apply equally to everyone discriminatory and racist?

It doesn't matter what the rule actually does, it matters how people who are affected feel about it.

8. How are rules that only apply to one group of people not discriminatory and racist?

Because those rules only serve to level the playing field. Withut them minorities simply couldn't compete with everyone else.

7. Do you know what a pyramid scheme is?

I'm not much for game shows. I think they should distribute the prize money evenly.

6. Why is it okay to kill unborn children but wrong to kill convicted murderers?

Because nobody votes to save convicted murderers.

5. How does stagnating growth stimulate the economy?

Ask Grover Norquist and Karl Rove and wall street, fat cats... corporate jets... it has to do with social justice, ok. Everyone should get their fair share, even if it's a fair share of less.

4. Does it make sense to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result?

The results of your actions don't matter. It only matters what you intended to happen.

3. How will punishing law-abiding people stop criminals from breaking the law?

I'm guessing you're some kind of gun nut. The answer, smartypants, is that if law-abiding people don't have guns then criminals can't steal their guns and commit crimes with them.

2. How can you count to ten if you skip the number two?

:rolleyes: The executive branch is in charge of enforcement, they can change any legislation they want to.

1. Why was George W. Bush a bad President but Barack Obama is a good one?

Please. Did Bush ever send a thrill up anyone's leg?

Obama's only responsible for the good things that happened!

10. How many people should we let into this country?

You want an exact number? Man, I dunno.

9. How are rules that apply equally to everyone discriminatory and racist?


There are all kinds of ways that can happen. See, for example, poll taxes, literacy tests, the old grandfather clauses for voting, etc.

8. How are rules that only apply to one group of people not discriminatory and racist?

See #9

7. Do you know what a pyramid scheme is?

Yes.

6. Why is it okay to kill unborn children but wrong to kill convicted murderers?

How are we defining "unborn children?" fertilized egg? third trimester?

Regarding killing murderers, there are a lot of practical reasons to be against it. There are way too many examples of the gov't executing the wrong person, there are huge racial disparities in sentencing (another possible answer for #8 and 9), and also I'd rather not give that kind of power over life and death to the government --which seems like something conservatives ought to agree on.

5. How does stagnating growth stimulate the economy?

It don't.

4. Does it make sense to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result?

I shuffle my deck of cards in exactly the same way, yet I always get a deck that's arranged differently.

3. How will punishing law-abiding people stop criminals from breaking the law?

Anyone get the feeling that there's some kind of follow-up question that I'm going to be zinged with based on my answers? Why don't conservatives just come out with the zingers and stop wasting time? Why be so coy?

2. How can you count to ten if you skip the number two?

Binary numbers, bitches.

1. Why was George W. Bush a bad President but Barack Obama is a good one?

W was a bad president because, among other things, he started a war based on a false pretext. idk if I'd call Obama a "good" president, but he's at least he hasn't done that.
