I think some departments have far too many toys but it depends on what they need vs want.... fire depts? again depends, roads? nah, agriculture? not sure what you mean there.


    I think the healtcare bill ought to be repealed. funding for finding out people like sex, or other pork barrelled spending. tattoo removal for crack whores, etc... I could go on for days.




    Why to me and you... See Gov Christ Christie for an example, compare him to Corzine.




    It's a basic philosophy that the left tries to tear apart and ridicule. fact is though you all failed with the vulgar epitaths, you all failed with the racist label, and this to, will be fail.

    I don't know what you mean by a basic philosophy to tear apart and ridicule although I suppose you have to say something negative about liberals every few posts. Perhaps you would be lost without that. I am posting for myself and trying to figure out what actions you are proposing behind the slogans. If you asked another "libertarian" you would get similarities and differences in the answers. I am just trying to understand what YOU mean. I post for myself and so do you. Just like when people use slang, the meaning of what they're saying can be blurred.

    My opinion is that it would difficult to get agreement on these questions. Sure, you can bring up the obvious "wastes" that look non-essential on the surface, but that's not where the real money is. People are pretty emotional about social security and the military. As a practical point, spending on these areas needs a realistic discussion, but it drives more emotion than even the race question. I'd like the Libertarian Party to talk about this but my guess they wouldn't touch it with a fifty foot pole and I can't blame them.

    So do you hold democrats to this same rigid standard?


    And crying that I say something "negative" about liberals every "few posts" serves what purpose exactly?

    Want me to say republicans suck as well? Sure. Any that don't follow the three things I outlined suck. put that in your fairness doctrine and smoke it.

    Actually go to LP.org they do indeed talk about it.

    Millions of people gathered around the country to protest together under the banner of lower taxes, less spending and reducing government. That's not newsworthy to you?

    Answers: Yes, if I don't know what is meant by a slogan, I'll ask about it. I think slogans cause confusion in communications. People say it so many times and think everybody knows what they mean. Sometimes you ask and you realize what you thought was meant didn't mean what you thought at all

    Because it doesn't make sense in the context I asked the question. Because I have Democrat and liberal doesn't mean I follow some script when I ask a question. Since I know I asked the question with that attitude, I got to ask why you would answer with something that had nothing what I asked. Its not to embarrass or demean, its to understand what your slogan means. No reason for you to get defensive.

    They have a website? Since Social Security and Military spending are the largest areas of the budget, you would expect that to be what they campaign on if they're serious about what they think government should do. Man, would it be unpopular. Instead, in their public campaigning, they talk only about taxes. Everybody hates taxes. But people may claim they don't want socialism, but I really think they would hate Libertarianism. But just my opinion. The more I ask the questions, the less popular I think the Libertarian stance would be with people who truly understand it.

    The point is that they got news coverage before that point and I'm not really sure about the numbers. But I can understand the claim of bigger numbers. But don't forget that many of those numbers were other party's plants who were trying to make them look racist.
