    Conservativism is not built on machines (and other electronics) but on the human ingenuity that invented, or allowed to come into existence, those inventions that you see around you.

    It's no wonder we are in such economic straights when the pursuit of sensible fiscal policy is pandering.

    Dani told me to look around me and I would see the truth of his wisdom. I looked around and it was not revealed.

    BTW, most anesthesia equipment is now designed and/or built in Finland, Netherlands, Japan, China, and other EU and Asian countries. I don't think you can say the ingenuity of conservatives has anything to do with their existence.

    Yeah, Bush didn't see it either, but then his party was beaten up badly. Bush sees it now.

    Go back and read the comments from the Republicans and Democrats.

    No difference, they just don't get it.

    Please just drink more coolaid while the founders turn over in the grave.

    Was Bush running? I thought he was term limited or whatever the hell y'all call it.

    Let's see. The Repubs nominate one of the most liberal they have. The Demos nominate the most liberal they have. Who won, again? You nominate two very liberal candidates and the most liberal of the liberals wins.

    The good citizens of the USA have proven they want the government to take care of them from pre-cradle to post-grave and there ain't no going back.

    As you said, if you don't believe me, look around. You should just accept it. You'll feel beter.

    Asked and answered many times, but I will answer it again. Bush himself? He was not running. Bush's party? That WAS running, and is the reason the Republican party got its ass totally kicked. Bush was the albatross around the GOP's neck.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Thoughout the election cycle when the people of the USA were presented with liberal and more liberal, they picked more liberal, in both the major parties.

    How can anyone think this protends a move back to the right?

    Why, so we can recruit a higher class of lawyers, central planners, do gooders, and other such scoundrels?

    I'll pass.

    If you want to raise pay significantly, do it with military personal, not the jerks that seek power and prestige.
