    I think we would be better off with no parties. Given that as an impossibility, I would opt for as many parties as possible.

    I said the same thing, but apparently statistics are just another liberal conspiracy.

    I believe the republicans should start specializing in better solutions at lower cost instead of merely obsolete propaganda and rhetoric in modern times.

    Look, it's not such a stretch to believe that the very same group of people who believe that Astrology is a science are not too conversant with scientific facts.

    Yes, lower spending, and jobs is "obsolete propaganda"

    I think the poster is suggesting that its time for the Cons to be specific, as to date, they have not been. They largely tell us what they are against and never tell us what they are for.

    For example: What is the "replace" in "repeal and replace?" The Keystone pipeline is not a jobs bill, nor are most of the other 25 "job bills" that have been passed. If they were they would be touting the specifics (which granted, they have at least done this with the Keystone pipeline) instead of hiding behind vagueness. Most of these bills abolish regulations, most of which make sense to be in place because of prior abuse...and as a small business man, few, if any stand in the way of progress (of people making investment in a business).

    Astrology/Astronomy is a science - as a matter of fact astrology is probably one of the most important sciences in human history.... The science was only responsible for measuring time and navigation. Lets also not forget all the segregated or contacted cultures that used the stars....

    So astronomy and astrology are certainly not poppycock.

    I could write a book on how important the stars were to ancient cultures, and how they understood the cosmos better than present humanity can.

    I could write a book on how barbers and bloodletting were important to the development of medicine, but anyone today who thinks that the best way to address a sore throat is to cut open a vein and bleed themselves is a crank, and so too are liberals who believe that Astrology is a science.

    Could the same be said for all these religious folks with all their crazy myths and superstitions?
