    If you have any information of a place like Hong Kong or Singapore having an effective free market solution to food regulations, then that would be some "what is" evidence for you.
    Hong Kong and Singapore have slightly more economic freedom, but they are not Anarcho-Capitalist societies, nowhere close. Sometimes good ideas just haven't been implemented anywhere in the world - yet.

    You cannot blame freedom-loving individuals for being less willing to lie, cheat, steal, torture, and kill than government-loving individuals have been throughout history, now can you?

    Have the Republican Gone Too Far in Criticizing Obama
    I voted "I don't know", but I'm starting to lean toward "yes".
    I think the Right is beginning to alienate all reasonable people.
    They've simply gone way too far. I'm not sure how the Republicans can ever return to power at this point, unless obama screws up spectacularly.
    And even then, it won't be easy.

    Care to give us some examples, or are we supposed to just take your word for it?

    Re: Have the Republican Gone Too Far in Criticizing Obama

    Another recommendation I would make to the GOP would be to keep the anti-Obama rhetoric consistent & at least semi-believable.
    On the one hand the GOP tries to paint Obama as being weak an not tough enough to be an effective international leader &, an hour later..he is Adolf Hitler!?!?
    After all the debates & being President for almost a year, most Americans can SEE that Obama is a personable, likable family man ......so the Nazi BS is just a silly & even an insulting message that is not salable.

    We also know that Obama:
    1. Is an American
    2. Is not pals with terrorists
    3. Doesn't really want to kill old people
    4. Is not Joseph Stalin
    5. Will not be going door to door collecting our guns to hand to illegal aliens.
    6. Isn't trying to poison our children's minds with Commie/Pinko ideology

    & so on.

    Nobody REALLY buys those insulting pieces of garbage so why keep peddling them??? (they hurt the GOP's credibility allot more than they will ever hurt Obama....)

    Anything that decelerates economic growth also adversely affects life expectancy.

    And socialist medicine simply cannot exist in conjunction with ever-evolving high-tech medicine, where life-extending procedures could eventually cost millions of dollars. By redistributing wealth (and destroying much of it in the process), the state does get to decide who lives and who dies.

    No, just his 2008 American equivalent.

    He is in favor of forced helplessness (aka "gun control").

    Yes he is. It's called public school.

    2 possibilities that I see:

    1. You actually believe those things....which would put you in a very small group on the far right "Fringe" of our society, imo

    Or:

    2. You don't really believe them but just repeat those things in the hopes of convincing others that they are true, which will just never happen.

    If you really dislike Obama, for whatever the reason, wouldn't it make more sense to attack him with at least plausible charges that we can't immediately see through as silly partisan attacks?

    Devil505 thinks I'm "far-right", a member of his "society", and that I have a "party". Wow.

    I'm actually trying to engage you in something beyond silly slogans & meaningless one liners. Are you up to discussing the GOP attack on Obama on a higher level or are we stuck in an elementary school recess debate?

    Re: Have the Republican Gone Too Far in Criticizing Obama

    I have made my points, and I am willing to defend them rationally.

    You have ignored the substance of my arguments, made laughably incorrect assumptions about my political philosophy, and resorted to name-calling.

    Since your points have been made, I guess further discussion would serve no purpose then.
