Re: "Right to work"

You obviously don't understand the concept of being *forced* to have someone "represent" you.

And apparently you don't understand the concept of NOT being forced to take a unionized job. Good grief, is there no end to this [more]

Re: "Right to work"

The states with unions are high price, high tax, high cost of living states. So what?

Re: Santorum squeezed into the clown car

Produce a decent Republican, and I would consider them, but so far, the clown car is just that a clown car.

Re: GOP has no Obamacare alternative or 'fix'

From Seattle I can buy car insurance from a lizard in Omaha, NE or from President Palmer in Chicago, IL. Why shouldn't I be able to buy health insurance?

Re: GOP has no Obamacare alternative or 'fix'

It's not inconsistent to point out that the basic underlying principles have merit while pointing out that the democrats touched the bill and frakked a lot of it up.

Re: GOP has no Obamacare alternative or 'fix'

And let's not forget the biggest difference: Obamacare is Federal vs Romneycare State.

If healthcare is going to change, it should be done by the states and NOT the federal government.


That is one argument against the pitiful [more]

Re: Christians in decline

In effect, the GOP is rebranding Christianity out of a moderate constituency.

That's part of it. But I also think that the internet is hugely influential. Religions have always survived by controlling the information that people are [more]

Selling insurance across state lines is not unconstitutional. The federal government could easily pass a law pre-empting state regulation of insurance products, if it chose

Re: The fourth estate is lost-but know that alre

It wasn't that long ago in the history of the church that it was committing atrocities every bit as evil and backwards as the worst of Islam today. So we can't imagine that Christianity is somehow inherently or intrinsically better than Islam, [more]

Re: Reagan mystique

Less than 10% of the trillion dollar stimulus was spent on actual job creation.
