"Socialism is for The People, not for Socialists." I'm waiting to see if Deprogramming Services and Cuban Pete figure out what this means. Once they do, then they can take back their erroneous opinions about me. I take no offense since you have not comprehended what you've read yet.

I'm sure you are reaching to us from some Olympian, transcendent place in the recesses of your deep mind. But your little sound bite needs some fleshing out for us mere mortals. What good is getting a message out if intelligent people can't comprehend it?

Socialism is for The People, not for Socialists.

Socialism is for losers.

Capitalism with a welfare clause is good.

"Free" cellphones for votes and a million work permits to illegal aliens for a La Raza vote when 23 million American citizens are out of work and losing their homes at a record breaking pace because of it is no good.

To whatever extent we don't "comprehend" your ever so deep writing, it is the fault of the author. I did say in a post below that if you really are a Libertarian you're ok; I'm a Libertarian too. But apparently you need to brush up on your communication skills.

You also admitted to being confused and I see that you speak the truth.

I confused you with the PhoneyReality guy because you appeared to be like him. That was the extent of my confusion. Yours apparently goes much deeper.

The advice I gave you about brushing up on your writing skills was good advice my friend. Any misunderstanding your fellow patriots might have about your meaning is your fault, not ours. That's something you should have figured out a long time ago. But if it makes you feel good to think you're this really deep guy that is too intelligent to be understood, go ahead and think that. See how far it gets you.

Suddenly, 2013 is upon us.  New year, similar issues, familiar players.  But before we set our sights on the battles and controversies to come, let's cast our gaze backwards to the year that was.  2012 promised to be a politically consequential year, and it lived up to its billing, albeit with generally disappointing outcomes from a conservative perspective.  The following is my personal take on the most significant political peaks and valleys from the past calendar year.  Let's begin with the good stuff:
