    If you have, how many times.
    I changed for the first time from Democrat to Republican back in 2002. I would like to register Libertarian but that would keep me from voting in primaries here.

    Losing primary access was the biggest hurdle to me for registering "no party", but I eventually became so disgusted with both parties that I don't want either of them claiming my support even as a nameless number on a list.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Never been a party loyalist. Never belonged to a party until Bush II. Mostly voted for who I considered to be the better choice. No long belong to the democrat party now that Bush is no longer invading countries in a pretext. So I guess my answer is cup cakes.

    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.

Working hard doesn't just mean showing up to work and working your ass to the bone, but doing something in your life to better yourself to learn skills necessary to move up in the world.

    Also are you implying that I'm a liberal
    Socialists are just worse.

    Skill acquisition requires money and some people don't make that kind of money without taking out loans and going into debt, sometimes for a long time. The grace period between college graduation and beginning payments is coming to and end and what's going to happen then

    Right right socialists are the bane of liberals existence because they are actually leftist

    No, it doesn't. You can learn many skills by simply learning them on your own free time. I learned how to program in C++. Java, C, C##, etc, with nothing but some books, a free program, and some free time. Hell, when I was going to college I worked for a web developer doing a skill that learned how to do in my free time when I was sixteen. I could be a damn artist if I felt like it too and again I learned how to draw, paint, even 3d model in my free time. I could be a mapper for a video game company if I felt like it as again I learned the skill in my free time and released many maps even a game using unreal development kit(free) using skills I learned in my free time. The myth that you need to have to go to college to learn a skill is blatantly false. Hell, you could start your own business if you wanted with almost nothing down. Need an idea on how? Buy used printer ink carriages, fill them with ink and resell them. See, its easy. You just have to think.

    Re: How many times (if any) have you changed your political affiliation?

    Through the years, I have voted all over the place. In Canada, we have more than two parties and I have voted Conservative, Liberal, NDP and Green. What I won't do is pledge my allegiance to any of them.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Well I never implied all of that but you make all of that sound as if its that easy and simple when there are a number of boundaries to overcome

    I sort of did while I was in the Air Force. I was under the mistaken notion that women should have the right to murder their unborn. It took someone not of my faith to explain (more of a reminder, actually) how wrong abortion advocates are. Needless to say that I was ashamed of how much I had slipped into the cesspools of the Left.
