    I know a fair amount of party hounds who support the dems because they basically live libertine lifestyles. They are aging potheads who sometimes are swingers who despise the religious right and the sanctimony they think the religious right directs their way. Same is true with more than a few Ivy educated Yuppies. They vote Dem because they see the GOP as the party of either Bible Thumpers or their over-controlling parents. They react against being judged or told how to live more than being over taxed

    You don't think that works both ways? Or are you really saying that they vote democrat because of something that is inherently wrong with them?
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Again, your mind reading skills are awesome to behold. It's always good for a laugh when conservatives wax eloquent about what liberals really think.

    many liberals say one thing when they believe others

    example

    dem leaders say the support gun bans to stop crime when in reality their goal is to harass gun owners for supporting the GOP

    or dem leaders saying American is unfair to the poor when these rich dems are trying to buy the poor's votes so the dem leaders get more wealth and power.

    I guess you expect me to believe that the reason why rich party hounds vote dem is because they think that the best way to help the poor is through welfare socialism?

    I guess you expect us to believe that you actually know what Democrats believe when your own posts demonstrate you do not have a clue and you only regurgitate the most extreme of partisan talking points disguised as phony insight.

    That is actually the saddest thing about it: that you can't even conceive of people caring about the less fortunate.

    Maybe you have been working too hard and need a vacation, it seems like your mind has been posioned do you sleep ok? Are you under constant stress caused by worrying about your money? I could tell you a secret but you would may not believe me but let me try. Hatred is really a terrible thing I think it's much worst to be the hater then to be the hated, when you hate your mind can never completely get out of the hate mode, How often do you smile, my guess is not much. Get rid of the hate and you will be on the way to happiness

    What?
    $45k where I live is definitely the good end of middle class.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
