I'd expect Venezuela to elect a Republican before some of these offices.
Nanny State = safety net programs supported to some degree by both parties.
So, when you're talking about Dems vs. Reps, it's really how much 'nanny' in the 'state'. I think you'll find that Republican congressmen who represent lower-income conservative Christians will favor, at least in speeches, an expansion of public assistance and jobs programs. And Democrats who happen to represent higher-income liberals, will favor a conservative tax code--especially for corporations.
There is this misconception that the GOP is a friend to the middle class and small business owners. At the federal level, most of our representatives haven't been 'middle class' since they finished law school.
The mid-terms should be interesting. The Tea Party conservatives need to keep in mind that moderates and independents do not find hyper-partisan signs and slogans appealing.
We agree with you on bail-outs and new taxes, but you start screaming 'Baby Killer' or 'Marxist' in our face, and we're out. You'll lose moderates and independents with that b.s. McCain/Palin were ahead in the polls after the GOP Conventions--but then Sarah opened her idiotic mouth.
Drop the Palins, Bachmans, and Inhofes.
I like Barbara Boxer, but if a smart fiscal conservative steps up with pragmatic solutions, I'll listen to everything he/she has to say.
Even before government intrusions skilled workers were paid more than unskilled workers.Because we live in a regulated economy and not a Laissez Faire one? Not to mention there is a cap on how unskilled your workers can be before they become financially undesirable.
