It, along with the statement I made, have absolutely nothing to do with supply side economics, but rather the policies that the Obama administration have been setting forth.
    Go on...

    Unless Regan Republicans are now Communists...now THAT would be quite a shift in the political spectrum

    Plus, the last time I checked, Gary Johnson is not a member of the GOP.
    And Gary Johnson has as much chance of being elected as my big toe.

    No, I have no realization. I do realize however that the only idea the GOP has is more trickle down. When they get a fresh idea let me know.

    And 1960 came down to how many people (dead or alive) voted in Chicago. Good move by Hizzoner, but there are probably shenanigans in every election from voting early/often, ineligible voters, to make up the totals so we can win.

    Who cares?

    Funny anecdote I heard on Rush radio on the way home from the golf course this PM -- you have to show proof of citizenship to get an Obama birth certificate coffee mug (it's a campaign donation).

If you say the GOP has special interests of big oil, military industrial complex and major banks...its difficult to say whether its driven by causes or money. Its not hard to say why the Dems are looking at unions and environmental companies as its not where you want to be if your looking for hand outs.

    Most of Johnson's voters will be stoned to the bejeezus come election day, and therefore might have trouble making it to the polls unless they're handing out free snacks that day.

    If you follow the lamestream media's mantra that this will be a "50/50" election, then you can buy into the hype about Gary Johnson being a factor. I personally don't think this election will be any closer than 2004 one way or the other, hence the 500 votes Johnson wins will not be decisive. I'd be more interested in former VA Congressman Virgil Goode (D to I to R-Liberty U) and his impact in Virginia since he just made the ballot. That has the potential to be a very close race.

    I highly doubt special interests is the draw, unless you consider Constitutionally protected individual liberties to be a special interest. Granted, you can't get away from special interests anywhere on the political spectrum. It isn't like the Democrat shoot-off known as the Green party that mostly focuses on environmental issues; that's definitely special interests. The same could also be said for New York State's Working Families party, Independence party, or Conservative party; I'm sure your state have similar party differences.

    Potentially good. Or special interests. Potentially bad. But ideologically nuetral on the spectrum...I'll take that.

    As I said, know nothing about this guy.
