Democrat and proud of it!
Don't know exactly what there is to be proud of.
Yeah, but I think you'd have to say the same about the Republican party too now...
I don't even know where I stand anymore. I continually loose faith in every political party, every political system and ideology.
I want the government out of my home, but I want to help the less fortunate too... so I suppose I'm some kind of sociolibertarian if we're going to go into classification here.
Most definitely. Comedian Lewis Black put it best: "Democrats -- the party of no ideas. Republicans -- the party of bad ideas." The only thing politicians in either party are concerned with is getting re-elected.
See, I haven't lost faith in the conservative ideology. I still believe the core philosophy of minimal government interference, strong defense, secure borders, states' rights, low taxes, entrepreneurship, and job creation is the best suited for 21st century solutions. The problem is how far the Republicans have drifted from this philosophy.
Well that's quite a paradox you've got here sublime.
Indeed, I need some time to think my stances through.
I think "no ideas" trumps "bad ideas" everytime.
Haha, at least it shows the Republicans are trying.
You might be onto something there Jarhead. Except that its nothing but lip service. They squandered thier opportunity to actually do something on several issues when they controlled the government. Putting foreign policy aside, no real action on immigration, Social security is in limbo, etc etc.
Its time to minimize the influence the parties wield.
Right on all account, Bunz.
