Did anyone see President Obama on Fallen last night and compare him to Romney and his speach last night,, My God, and this is what we have now,, I'm just wondering who is going to be the vice president,,
ACTC is scarry right now so this might spark some speaks,,
Yea, he is going to rule from the middle like allowing tax increases of the rich by a middling amount, like allowing your nanny state by a middle amount, and like he is going to go against the bible belt Republicans by a total amount? He is not going to go against what the Republican religious right demands of banning ESC. When push come to shove, he is not going to go against the right wing of the Republican Party by totally allowing ESC research and development. Why gamble on him, when the odds are he will go along with the strong anti-ESC stance of the Republican Party? Why gamble on someone carrying the baggage of the anti-ESC stance of his party? He may or may not be a diehard bible thumper (although Mormons are supposed to be require to donate a significant part of their earnings to their Church showing they are strongly influenced by religion) but he is certainly a diehard conservative Republican, whose party had made banning ESC a part of its party platform.
I don't begrudge anyone for the wealth they worked for. My problem is paying a combined 33% Fed/State rate on my income when he or others pay 15% - that is BS!!!! Entitlement for companies and lazy folks while I work my a.zz off doesn't make me smile.
Oh yes and I dont begrudge the man for being wealthy,, this class warefare crap tha Obummer started needs to stop but it wont, hell I want to be rich too like everybody else who has invested in this stock,, no hipocrits allowed,,
I agree, he is not close to a bible thumper. He is also not stupid enough to block stem cell research. The right wing pushed McCain into a corner and my guess is, he will push back now that he is the man.
I think we might see if Romeny gets elected that he will rule from the middle somewhat and we might just see him to encourage stem cell research,, he certainally is not a bible thumper,,Lets have some speaks on this,,
While you are at it, why leave out Hobbes, Spinoza, Hume, Montesquieu, Rousseau and both Mills?
Did any of them espouse Socialism or a Nanny State?
Don't forget Machiavelli, too!
