    I've always thought highly of Gary Johnson. He seems like a very practical man, almost logical.

    Here's what you can do, if you want to know. Google "Government employee unions pensions benefits" and then add a state name. I suggest beginning with Califonia, and Illinois.

    As for you expecting to be given a handout, I will refer to the Cinese proverb: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
    You don't have to look up jack. It's obvious that you haven't and don't. My source link in an earlier post provided the data concerning campaign donations, expenditures, advertising, etc., etc. You do have to read it, however.

    As to backing up your earlier statement. You didn't, and as I said, you can't. It's obvious that you don't have the appropriate data because you can't provide it. That's fine. Be like Conservative and admit that you don't really want to know if what you believe is factual. Just make the assumptions and say, "Hey, I don't expect you to accept what I believe because I didn't actually come to a logical conclusion. If I can't provide sources I don't actually have and, and you know what, I'm not going to review any sources anyway. I'll believe what people tell me to believe as long as it sounds like what I want to believe."

    That's probably the biggest thing he has going against him. No matter, at this point I'm looking to vote for him.

    I don't necessarily agree with the outcome of the election but the way this was carried out was good. Walker has decided to demonize 11.5% of the country's population and the unions demonstrated the political cluster**** that they can cause. I doubt there will be many governors looking to go through this kind of **** anywhere else in the US. Good job Walker, in one shot you've become a political pariah, made most governors apprehensive about going up against unions and ensured that most think twice before removing collective bargaining rights. I really hope it was worth it.

    As for you expecting to be given a handout, I will refer to the Cinese proverb: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
    The modern version of that proverb is teach a lib to fish and he'll just ask for more fish.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Or... teach a conservative to debate and he'll still troll.

    Best line I heard him say when they finally let him speak in a debate once was... "I'm at least still liked in the state that I was a governor of."

    It does. I damn sure don't have all the information about anything. If I believe I do have good information and you ask me to source it, I will. If you have information that proves me in error I want that information. When I am wrong I want to know why so that I can be correct.

    Truth prevails. Refusal to search for truth and consider information provided by other people doesn't change whatever truth might be. Refusal to consider information that supports an opposing position flat out guarantees that you'll be willfully ignorant on more than a few occasions.

    Vance brought up a few questions earlier about negative publicity that Walker received. I frankly had not thought about the fact that it may have required a little more PR to turn that around. I don't know it yet as I am still trying to find a few articles and reports. But Vance may have a point. I am happy he brought it up. I will learn from it one way or the other.
