    No, some of them are pretty arrogant as well. They tend to make me disinterested in what they keep blathering on about. True, some of libertarian point are well worth considering, but then, they take it to an extreme and disinterest takes hold. I mean, really now. The Fed is there for a very good reason, I'm sure of it. I may not be able to express it very well, or completely, but the good reason for it exists. As do US troops station in various locations throughout the world.

    No. His comments were directed at "extremist Republicans." Since that's what he said.



    I don't know if you're aware of this, but under Gov. Cuomo, state taxes have been cut pretty significantly over the last three years. And there's been a whole mess of tax breaks for businesses under his administration (one of your articles was from 2011). NYS definitely had a problem with too high of taxation -- it's being brought into line with other economically similar states.



    I think the left end of the spectrum has moved slightly over the last few years as a knee-jerk reaction to the disastrous policies of the Bush administration and the GOP when they ran the show exclusively for the first six years of this century. I don't think it's moved very far.
    I know of no Republican leader who has referred to "extremist Democrats" but they certainly must exist. But of course it is always Republicans who are referred to as 'extremists', not the loons on the left.

    I believe that calling democrats communist or socialists kind of eqautes as being labeled a extremist.

    Aren't there Democrat Communists and Socialists? How large a percentage do you think might be one or both?

    When I think of communists I think of Stalin. And as a democrat I am offended to be even compared to a monster like Stalin.

    I really don't care if you are offended or not. Too many whiny Democrats get easily offended.

    All you have to do is check the history of the Democrat party to see their support for slavery both in the United States and under totalitarian governments elsewhere. You should have done your vetting before you decided to become one of them.

    Oh, you do?

    I’m going to ignore your bizarre non sequitur here and say only that your “screening process” will never even approach mine. Why? Because while I might happen to vote for a gay atheist with good ideas and viewpoints I share, you’re going to vote based on whether somebody is gay and atheist.

    How about a lesbian with a funny haircut? A poet with one leg? A bus driver who whistles?

    The possibilities are endless.

    Isn't it discrimination to simply not vote for someone solely based on their background? I would vote for a gay atheist if their politics matched similarly to mine. I would vote against an Evangelical Christian if they disagreed with mere (and there is a fairly large socialist movement growing among some Evangelical groups I would have issues with).

    There are far more extremist Republicans in elected office than extremist Democrats.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
