really? true liberal in the sense that I espouse liberty and individual freedoms as the liberals in the 18th century? You know, guys like Locke? vs people that look to Rousseau and Marx on both sides of the aisle
The Dems play chess The GOP is still trying to figure out how to play checkers
actually a libertarian. Just tired of the whiny GOP that cries when it can't get their base out, while the Dems go out and get their ground game going. The Dems find their voters and get them to the polls. The GOP relaxes and just sits back and expects to win with lazy campaigns like I am better than the other guy.
Actually, It is the responsibility of the GOP to win over these voters. If there are no arguments against his point then I guess he is right
Here is part of the problem: The GOP and Mr Hunter make it a point to chastise the very people that the GOP needs in their camp. I understand the strawman that we can't hope to have a candidate that we agree with 100% of the time. I do not think that anyone expects that. Here is the point. If the nominee wants my vote and probably a lot of conservatives and libertarians, they will have to earn it. Lazy campaigns saying that the other guy is worse is 3rd grade mentality. And the GOP is lazy. Where are their campaigns in the Black and Hispanic communities? Are they going to simply cede these blocks to the Dems? This is why we lose and deserve to lose. The Dems are everywhere and look for an issue that will win you over. They don't cede anything. The decision lies with the GOP. They will have to earn the vote and convince their base to come out. Where's their ground game? Is the GOP strategy simply going to be to be angry cross their arms and stamp their feet if their base doesn't come out?
Understand your point, If the Dems are openly for Amnesty for the votes and the GOP is quietly for Amnesty for the Chamber of Commerce; is there really a difference? We hear all of the promises on border security and it is nothing but lip service from the Bushes to the Clintons to Obama. And we believe the GOP - why?????
Let's see ... What does everyone think? Will the bill that the GOP brings up for a vote be a call for border enforcement or will it be a sell out of the American public and back the cheap labor that the Chamber of Commerce wants? If it is the Chamber of Commerce version, then the Chamber done bought themselves a Congress to do its bidding and the public be damned

What is the rally cry for the GOP? Elect us and we will get really mad at Obama when he exercises despotic actions. We will even point out finger and stamp our feet! We won't use our powers of impeachment, but we will throw a couple of tantrums on CSPAN

There is a problem with the analysis. We have a President that is exercising extra Constitutional powers. The GOP's approach is to let him. The GOP has stood by afraid to confront these actions except for Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. The GOP is afraid of its own shadow and even if they regained the Senate and the House - So What? The GOP has already surrendered to Obama. The GOP are emphatic that they will take no meaningful action against the lawless actions of the POTUS. So why will I or anybody else go out and vote for the GOP? ????????????????????????????????
I guess I am getting cynical in my old age. Is anyone shocked, shocked that there is a cheater running for political office?

The Devil in Global Warming Details

Global Warming Scientists are doing what they need to do to keep that research money coming. They get grant money and they push out all of this cool (oops hot) research that can be used in the AGW scare tactic of the week. Understandable. They have sold out their services as political hacks disguised as scientists. It is really easy - get a bunch of lab coats and lots of eyeglasses. Get everyone to don them and look - you know - scientific Voila, we have a consensus and plenty of extras for the passionate plea on TV It is really easy.
