We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Reading the scholarly work of Woodrow Wilson is an educational experience. It is shocking to read the expressions of his disaffection for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. As R.J. Pestritto has demonstrated, the intellectual roots of modern liberalism lie in an assault on the ideas of natural rights and limited government. They eventuate in an administrative state and rule by supposed experts. Obamacare represents something like the full flowering of modern liberalism.
That CNN poll is interestingly structured. They deliberately structured it with a racial balance of 30% blacks and 30% Hispanic. But according to the Census Bureau the U.S. is 12.8% black and 15.4% Hispanic. So why did CNN structure the poll that way?
From the poll:
"The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted July 16-21, with 1,018 adult Americans questioned by telephone, including a special sample of 308 black and 303 Hispanic respondents. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points."
Of course we ARE GOING TO LOOSE! Our election process has been so corrupted in most of our states and counties that it is not possible to have an open and accurate election. Dems will move bodies by bus, they will photocopy illegal documents, they will lie about the count, and they have already installed corrupted machines (manufactured in Chicago by the same folks who rig slot machines). SO JUST WHY ARE YOU SO SURPRISED? Where were you when the people in WA state begged for Federal oversite? Oh, yeah I remember you were sitting on the sidelines as the "REPUBLICAN" AG defended the corruption. Gotta do way better folks!
anotherone ... You remind me of Joe Bftsplk in the old Lil Abner cartoon, always walking around with a black cloud directly over your head. Pull your socks up, friend. We've been in tough spots before, surrounded by crooks and thugs as we are today. We'll fight our way through this swamp too, if you'll only buckle down and help, rather than complain.
