    According to some, you have to be a complete moron to be an AF.
    Of course, those who believe such things are, knowngly or ignorantly, fans of Marx, Lenin, et al, so...

    Which is weird because anti-federalism doesn't necessarily mean one cannot support socialism. It would only mean that it would be supported at the local or state level as opposed to the federal level. Granted, full on communism would mean a stateless society, and that is pretty much incompatible with the decentralized perspective of the anti-federalists.

    Those people are all about strong central governments tighly managing all aspects of society.
    Never a good thing for liberty, at any level.

    It completely means that socialism is not to be accepted on any level.

    I disagree. The typical O'Donnell fan is hardly the typical Piers Morgan fan. By bringing O'Donnell on he has a benefit in hopefully generating new viewers that would previously not have watched his show that may continue to watch it. I disagree entirely that there was no way for Morgan to have any benefit regarding the interview without being able to ask probing questions.

    I think the typical Morgan fan is far more likely to be the typical O'Donnell hater. Who is most interested in reading and hearing about Palin, for example? I say it's liberals.

    And I see very little chance of O'Donnell's fans ever becoming Piers Morgan fans. I'm sure he sees the same thing. Therefore, the people to target are those who do not like O'donnell, IMO, because I don't think that he has any chance to woo the peopel you are talking about.

    Nothing like that is present in the anti-Federalist papers. Where do you draw your conclusions from?

    My problem is that these kind of people are far too present in both political parties these days. Even most tea partiers I encounter don't particularly support decentralization.

    This -is- true. Its what happens when people in government focus on their own, and then their party's, accumulation and retention of political power, above all else.

    No fan of Morgan, but O'Donnell is clearly wrong. Look for conservative talkers trashing Morgan today.
