    What political scale do you go by?

    Just kind of interested in what political scale you use...

    Example: The first is based on government size

    So the only two poll choices you're offering are 'retarded right-wing propaganda' and 'miscellaneous'?

    I'd vote for 'Other', but I wouldn't want you to mistake that for condoning this nonsense.

    Deontology versus utilitarianism.

    The right hates me because I'm not built enough to engage in rugged individualism.

    The left hates me because I'm not black, female, or gay, so I have no excuse to struggle.

    Both sides are addicted to pragmatic appeals to absurdity, so screw'em both.

    LOL @ "other"

    I was doing research this week - the department of consumerism reported on the sale of furs - being 0.07% of sales . . . but yet 'other' was 42.7% of overall sales in the industry.

    WTF is the other **** that they aren't reporting? Stupid lazy ****s. That's government for you! : So guess what I won't be selling; the furs.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    The political spectrum is a circle, not a straight line.

    Try looking at politics as a facet of sociology...it makes much more sense.

    Most people look at politics via economics which is very frustrating. They don't consider due process or procedural justice on the basis of discourse ethics. They just consider what effects, results, and outcomes turn up for people to make a living.

    People need to consider how they make a living before considering what living they make.

    Well the economic view is the easiest to understand. Everyone (almost) has to make a living and since the government is so big now so that has prominence. And of course, the lawyers elected to the Legislature screw up the laws so more lawyers can be employed.
