American libturd, You didn't answer my question about the Puritan, my takeaway is that you don't know the answer. The Puritans created a communal food bank for all colonists to contribute and use. After the first year, they realized that too many were not contributing, only taking, and the food coffers were bare. The next year the land was partitioned among the colonists...each were responsible for their own food.....lesson learned....the takers had to work or starve, and social democracy will produce the same results.....

I did answer it. I said you were formulating a false choice, as though if we reject communism, as the Pilgrim fathers did, we are therefore obliged to accept trickle-down--which also fails as a system capable of generating broad and deep prosperity.

Who said being a "community organizer" doesn't prepare you for anything? The governing part may be a little dicey, but you sure know how to campaign.  And now we all know now about the Obama organization.  Obviously, GOP needs one.  

But in the run-up to 2016, we also need to find a way to extend our reach in popular culture.  That's because -- as Mark Halperin has noted -- the left is going to try make every viable GOP contender unacceptable in the eyes of the public before the 2016 season even starts off.

Obviously, if the right...
