The real question should be, what is the deal with the democratic fan base in it's entirety? They sure are gung ho when it comes to rooting home their favorite team, but they don't seem to be able to answer many questions regarding the ownership, the coach, the players, or what they feel are the rules of the game. The common fall back of "everyone is greedy, we need regulators to keep us from killing ourselves and one another,,,,,,," to which they never can answer "where to find these holier than thou regulators that for some reason AREN'T greedy, and know better bout whats best for everyone else".

Higher taxes + less freedoms = the democratic platform

one can claim that the repukes are for

Lower taxes + less freemdos = the repukes

however, one team wants more power to the fed gov (higher taxes, which equates to less freedoms), and the other wants to 'starve the beast' (lower taxes equates to more freedom). If the only choice is one of the two, how can one ever say that they are in favor of freedom and liberty, AND they vote democrat

At least with the repukes, you know what you are getting, or at least what their fan base is supporting

They want life in America to represent the ant and the grasshopper parable. They claim to want the right to reap what one sews, for the hardworking ant to enjoy a better standard of living than the lazy grasshopper. They claim to believe that if you plant in the spring, toil in the summer, you will eat well in the fall and survive the winter, rather then the lazy grasshopper that lays and plays and is left dependent on the ant for his survival

With the democrat party, they seem to want to sell the herd that what makes us different, makes us evil. "let one thousand flowers bloom?" NO SIR! Risk is bad, change is bad, and being different is bad (all the things that have made us great). Follow the rule of law, listen to what your master tells you, there is someone else smarter than you that knows better that will look out for your best interest. Worst of all, they are the party that props up the rent seeking activity that has strangled the economy to death. "DON'T ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS",,,,,,,,,,,.  They all agree that the current system of education is the best one, we just need more private dollars to fund it, then it will work better. I ask what is the purpose of a college degree, what does it signify, and what is it good for? There's two sides to that trade. One, is the creditor on the other side of the student debt, and two is the idea that "if you work hard at school and get a degree, you are entitled to high wages",,,,don't bother thinking out if the risk is worth the reward, or the functionality of the degree in the future, weighed against all of it's opportunity costs. hint: rent-seekers founded these "institutions of higher learning", with the goal to instill in the minds of the masses that the piece of paper = the right to seek rents



I anxiously await the day that the majority ditches both garbage parties for something new and something different and something better.

THose of us that have already done so, await in the garden, hoping one day the fan bases of these two ancient parties, will one day embrace, "let one thousand flowers bloom"



enjoy another week of summer-like weather

At least that's the justification the shepherd used to bring in the flock 

Of course in order to support the GOP, you need to continue to believe in and support the unicorn paradigm.

like i said, i am anxiously waiting the day when the herd denounces both parties

The worst kind of people are those that always play the victim. I'm a victim of the two party system, and that system forces me to side with the democrats

Take some responsibility of yourself, ask some questions, as to why things are the way they are, and what you yourself can do about it, then get out there and do it. Trashing the opposing team and cheering yours home, accomplishes nothing. Subjugating you responsibilities to a higher power, is unAmerican, and both parties seem to do that equally.

open your mind

The world doesn't fit in your one dimensional, two sided box

This has nothing to do with me, but I suggest you take your own advice.

You should open your mind and let the light in because your right wing bias gives you nothing but clouds

The fact is I do not trust any politician really and his voting record doesn’t hold much in my eyes because I am sure if I dig deep enough, I would find something that I don’t approve of. If Ron Paul supporters knew about some of those things, he voted for that they would also have issues with Ron Paul.

I question Ron Paul’s character when I read Ron Paul say he doesn’t believe in hate crimes, wouldn’t have voted against Jim crow laws, immigrants spread disease, he’s against the civil rights act, called the civil war senseless, a white 13 year old is not a criminal but a black 13 year old should be treated like an adult criminal, and voted against MLK day.

Ron Paul has a few screws loose and confuses the hell out of me.

I agree with almost all of Joe Rogans political views not just his stance on marijuana. I do not blame people for endorsing Ron Paul. I do not endorse a single candidate. I listen to Ron Paul speak and half the time I think he’s brilliant and the other half I think he has a few screws loose.

I am not going to waste my vote on Ron Paul when I know he is only going to get maybe 7 percent of the vote. The only thing on my mind is knowing that the presidential candidates that are front runners are so stupid it’s down right terrifying.

The Republican side cannot even find Egypt on a map and I know Obama can find Egypt and name the people who run that county. One GOP candidate believes that god lives on the planet Kolob, the second one believes that the Moon should be the 51st state, and the third one is a bigoted theocratic nutcase.

Then I am left with Ron Paul and Obama. If I believed Ron Paul had a chance, he would get my vote just to throw a curve ball to both sides of the political spectrum. I am worried about one of those GOP nutcases getting the keys to the White House more than I am worried about Obama.

I know my political views and observations are all over the place.

I hope that this helps you understand my logic

not really but it is what it is

i dont want to get into a link off

I don't know how to make it any more clear and what exactly are you proselytizing?
