My cohorts? And who might they be? Do you believe that a left wing exists?Considering you and your cohorts label anything that you disagree with as "left wing", then your words don't mean much.
Apparently you have never seen a gathering of the Republican party and the number of women there.And yes, Conservative women often do get a hard time by the opposition.. but it is not because they are women, but because there are so few of them, that they do stick out like a sore thumb and when they come with idiotic comments on a regular basis, then well..
Ah yes. Cain is stupid and boneheaded as well. Thats the typical LWftist critique of their poltical opponents. The real issues are never discussed.It is the same with Herman Cain.. he is black, and a front line conservative... a quite rare thing... but are people racists for being critical of him? of course not, not when he comes stupid comments and has bonehead policy ideas. And yes the same goes for Obama.
All political candidates in the US show their families and to you and other Leftists this makes them "far game"". We can therefore attack Barrack Obama's children but we don't. And do you know why? Because there is a sense of decency among non Leftists, and if his children were attacked it would be declared offensive by everyone immediately. It is only the children of Conservatives who are attacked in this fashion, just as are Conservative Blacks and Conservative women.Palin brought her family into her political campaigning and then like it or not they are fair game. She is the one that paraded her whole family on a very constant pace at all rallies she was at.
You feel it is wrong for one of her children to hold their bay? "Bristol with her big belly"??? She was pregnant! What do you expect? And families often travel together. Don't you know that? Have they no more family units in Europe?She is the one having one of her kids hold the baby.. she is the one who pushed Bristol with her big belly into the media spotlight and she is the one that got tax payers to pay for her whole family as they always traveled with her (instead of being in school....?) when she was governor of Alaska.
Oh they have tried to scrutinize Bachmann on non-political issues, even on these boards, and she is also being called "stupid" as you also describe a candidate. How is the presence of her husband a "self inflicted wound"?As for Bachmann.. her family is in no way being scrutinised as Palin's was/is. Her children are pretty non existent in the reports I have seen, which frankly is good. Sure her husband is in the spotlight, but that is a self inflicted wound.
If you analyse it, I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. -Ronald Reagan
I am also known as "vauge".
As for suing... You realize suing somebody in a court of law is a service provided by government... That is how individuals can enforce regulations. Government gives them that ability... Without government there would be no law to sue over, no court to determine if the law had been violated and no way to enforce the decision of the court...
Or the argument you make about monopoly is also backwards. Governments break up monopolies. That is one of the key areas of regulation- antitrust regulation.
As for corporate donations, a few things. First off, corporations more often donate to the candidate that they think will win rather than the candidate they want to win. They are trying to buy influence, not only trying to influence elections. But secondly, the stats you hear about "BP donated more to Obama" or whatever are always a bit of a scam. If you actually read the articles they actually say "BP and all of its employees donated more to Obama than McCain"... So like all the people working in their gas stations, manual laborers, etc, combined. That isn't remotely the same thing as saying BP donated more money to Obama.
