    You did a little more than that:
    An establishment Republican is just a little worse than a liberal democrat. At least we know that the liberal democrat is the enemy.
    But, I won't belabor the point. When you cut out too many from your tent, you assure losing any popular vote. I wouldn't ask you to support anything you don't believe in, but I would argue that you need to covince people more than you need to categorize them. Just saying.

    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.

    Hehe. Yes. I see no disconnect between the two statements.

    As the one term Marxist president Obama might say, "They can come along for the ride but they have to sit in back."

    My point is that we need to have a real difference between the parties other than timing. Establishment Republicans want to arrive at the same place as the Democrats but they want to do it more efficiently, with less corruption and at a pace they think the public will accept. They path still leads to tyranny.

    As I've told you before, you lose all credibility when you go with the Marxist silliness. It cheapens the discourse and makes it less likely we'll be able to tell real threats from the hyperbole. But, it would be nice if the silliness could at least strive to be original. Do you know how old this tried tactic is?

    Unfortunately his Marxist core beliefs color everything the one term president does. He has done and continues to do great harm to the nation. We can end the Marxist madness in a year. Elections can be wonderful things.

    All governments have two tendencies. They accumulate power and they hire the mediocre. The end result is always tyranny.

    Although I liked your post, I strongly disagree with you on part of it - Obama being a Marxist. He loves America as much as you and I do. He just doesn't get it, which is the same as so many other politicians, Democratic and Republican alike.

    Add to what danarhea said that there is too little of your post that is objective and supportable for me to like evena little of it. Generalizations too often lead us to untruths more than they lead us to truth.

    First, thank you.
    Second, how do you explain his efforts to create chaos at every turn, his demonizing of corporations, his rule by executive fiat and regulatory agency regulation? If that is love then I believe it is a cruel and sadistic love. The nation needs to divorce him.

    On his Marxist core beliefs I am certain. His father was a communist and his mother a socialist. His mentor was a communist. He surrounded himself with radicals.
