    You know Catawba the more I read your posts, the more I become a disappointed evolutionist myself.

    That may be the way the far right view it. Most of us however are aware that Congress not representing what the public wants is why they have historically low approval ratings. Its possible it make take a couple of election cycles to weed out those not representing the majority of voters.

    This explains how PPACA, yet not AWB/MCL/UBGC was passed without need of a single GOP vote?

    Exactly.

    It's a variant of the argument that we've seen from other members of the far wrong, who assert that as long as some exercise of a right is allowed, that the right is not being violated when other exercises of it are not allowed. In this case, as long as there are some people who are allowed to vote, or to own a gun, the argument is there is no violation in selectively denying some other people the right to do so. This is solid digestive waste from a male bovine, of course, but then that's really what defines the far wrong.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Every time that's been done already in this thread, you've simply ignored or denied it, or dismissed the poll as not credible.

    It appears that you will only accept as “credible”, any poll that agrees with the far wrong lies that you insist in repeating.

    Bob, only you think a political forum poll is a credible national poll. So if that's all you've got, you've got nothing!

    and you think polling results are a sound substitute for your inability to actually make a cogent argument in favor of a feel good law
