    well from the left, liberty is based on the collective mindset, not from the prospective of the individual.

    so there are no individual property rights.

    which all liberty derives out of property.

    If you don't get votes, you don't get to govern.

    And the job of our political representatives is to represent us.

    You have no idea how liberals think, so stop trying to tell people what they think. Unless you'd like me to start telling you what you believe.

Recall recently how Obama spoke in favor of marijuana legalization and came out in favor of gay rights.

    Do you know the difference between decriminalization and legalization, because it isn't about how much regulation is involved with the sell or purchase of a product. For the foreseeable future, there will be some regulation by various governing bodies over the sell, possession, growth, and even taxation of marijuana. It will likely be treated like alcohol and cigarettes.

    Decriminalization of marijuana has actually happened in more states than legalization of marijuana has. Decriminalization means removing criminal penalties from marijuana use or possession of small quantities (although there could still be some civil penalties), whereas legalization removes all forms of punishment for any possession of marijuana (with possible exceptions based on age or violation of regulations in place for it) and allows for it to be grown and regulated.

    I do wish I'd read some original thought from time to time instead of weak dribble like this.

    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.

    Didn't you know? Only white, straight, conservative men have legitimate, honest opinions based on serious ideology. Women, minorities, and anyone voting Democrat is an evil, greedy, lazy person with a sinister agenda to destroy America.

    You make it sound like a bad thing for a party to represent the views of its constituency.
    I may be wrong.
