    how does that change the fact that millions of republicans support equal rights and weed?

    Karl Rove is a nutcase
    brilliant BULLY, EXTORTIONIST, and CON MAN

    but a nutball and exactly whats wrong with politics

    Quacks like palin and bachmann and Carson and Cain also can or are making a living stirring "self identified republicans" too

    that also doesnt change the fact that many republicans cant stand them and think they are loons

    the point is both righties and lefties have their "stereotypes" and squeaky wheels that get shown in the media over and over again but that doesnt mean they speak for the whole party

    that is another thing that is exactly the problem with politics today

    so do you have a point?

    are you claiming that millions of conservatives dont support equal rights and weed?

    I wish they would be more vocal in setting the agenda of the Republican party.

    unfortunately in 2014(and the last 20 years) seems more than not the good messages of any party always take a back seat to the ones that generate news, outrage, controversy etc

    To a point. They are accountable to the electorate. But the are also responsible for doing the job. Sometimes this means leading the way before the electorate catches up.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I know you don't see the flaw in your original post. It's an over generalization that has no bearing in any issue at all. As I don't make such over generalizations, there us no group that would accurately reflex the issue I have, which is exaggerated over generalizations. So even here, your missing the issue.

    No surprise or mystery here.

    I think it has been obvious for a very long time which of the two major parties is the party of perverts and potheads. They're just feeling less need, now, than they once did, to be discrete about it.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    here is what i base my initial post on, ..it speaks for itself.



    ask the left, "are rights endowed by the creator"........they will say flat out.........NO!

    they believe rights are created by man, a collective body of people, the collective mindset.

    collectivism is the opposite of [individualism], ......which is what america was founded on.

    under collectivism..... no individual rights exist because the collective decides what they are, and the individual is subservient to that collective.

    What a load of horse****. How about you stop trying to tell liberals what they believe, since you clearly don't know what you're talking about. This is just another hamfisted attempt to portray liberals as all collectivists.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
