At times I've been taken in by the argument that we simply need a hard-right conservative who's not afraid to stand up and tell the voters the truth, especially economically. But then, I tend to believe that only about 30 to 40% of voters would take to that positively. I think that even many folks who voted for Romney this last time would not like to hear the full truth, not really. But in actuality, I no longer believe we'll ever elect another Republican to the White House. The dems are too well stationed in the swing states, the pandering and class warfare by the left has gotten too strong and taken in too many people, and you've got the MSM who will do all they can (considerable) to help the left always win.

Wow, Zen, I know just how you feel. We should just open up the government coffers and throw some money at this employment problem. That will fix it. Darned Republicans anyway, having no sympathy for the poor. The Dems -- ah, there's the real feel-gooders! They're the ones who really care. I mean, we've all seen it work so many times in this country -- just spend MORE government money, right? That always works. And, besides, you can sit at home and really feel good about how your tax dollars are spent! Ever hear of the War on Poverty? LBJ's Great Society? Landmarks in Dem history, and did it ever create jobs and beautiful neighborhoods!!!

Oh, where's the empathy . . . the empathy????
JAS -- you still don't get it, do you? Just as Adams laid out several bad lines of logic when it comes to aborting the unborn, YOUR line of logic is just as bad. I know, you wanted to come across as all well-thought out and even-minded. But, using your logic, other people would be free to kill whoever and whenever they wanted, simply because "we" don't know what their "journey in life" has led them to or been like for them. Respecting the fact that they may have different values than you and letting it go at that opens some pretty terrible doors.
