    Since when did the US federal government spend 50% of the US GDP?

    It's pathetic how the right will twist anything for political advantage,.
    Unlike the title of this thread, Coons wrote about his change of heart toward America's free market after his trip to Kenya changed him.
    O'Donnell embraces Christianity now. Does Coons embrace the free market?

    Political positions

    O'Donnell is known for her vocal opposition to abortion and pornography
    Abortion and stem cell research
    O'Donnell opposes abortion, including in cases of rape and incest.[18] She would allow abortion with the family's consent, if the woman would otherwise die.
    So, the woman's life would be subject to her husbands consent?

    I see no problem with this as I am not supportive of those initiatives.

    That one is a bit ... weird.

    Nothing inherently wrong with those positions as I can see the logic in them even if I do not agree with the first part. (I agree with raising the age for SS)

    My jury is still out on climate change. So I am neutral on this.

    No issue there from me, even though I think taxes are too low for the highest income earners, but I won't take issue as I see taxation as a minor issue.

    Is there any empirical proof for this statement?

    I agree that we need to do better in balancing the budget.

    Ear marks are such a small % of federal outlays thats its not really worth bringing up. We should be looking at nondescretionary spending first.

    I think it's 40%. Pretty darn close to socialism.
    She says what she did was legal.
    Personal lifestle? By that you mean, having a roof over your head? From what I'm gathering that's pretty much how it was. She used campaign funds to use part of her apartment for a campaign office or something like that.

    US federal government spending is equal to about 24% of the GDP of the US

    Yes she used campaign funds to pay for rent. Or at least that is the charge. Which I believe is illegal in the US.

    The problem I find with ear marks is that they are used as a way to buy votes.

    Using campaign money to pay for your living expenses is a pretty big deal. It is similar to an employee who uses company money that they are not entitled to for the same purposes.

    Re: Christine O'Donnell: 'I Dabbled in Witchcraft'

    I stopped reading after page 2, so forgive me if this has already been said. Who cares if someone dabbled in any other religion? I think those expressing shock or dismay have a lot to learn about tolerance themselves. First, witchcraft is not satanic nor is there blood involved, so I do believe she has no idea what kind of ceremony she attended. Again, who cares?

    I said this on another board earlier. If Conservatives have any sense, someone will stand up and say, "Wiccan is a loving religion, and Wiccans are welcomed in our party."
