    I think you need to have your head examined. I've hated Palin for as long as I can remember. If you can find a post of mine that said I agree with her set of policies, I'll donate $100 to Obama's campaign.

      Sadly, in our current era of celebritism (and yes, I made up that word, I think you have an idea as to what it means), people will try to pick up any advantage they can. Plus, your suggestions are already being used by Democrats such as Charles Rangel.

          Good lord. For once I agree with Rick Santorum:

          "We will never have the elite, smart people on our side"
          http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012...?newsfeed=true

          Congratulations, Rick. You just admitted smart people aren't religious nutjobs. I like him throwing the libertarian wing of the GOP (what remains of it, anyway) under the bus as well.

          Challenging "economic conservatives and libertarian types who say, 'Oh we don't want to talk about the social issues,'" former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., told the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, "Without the church and the family, there is no conservative movement, there is no basic values in America enforced, and there is no future for our country."

              Trying to understand your outrage here.

              Is it that we should be upset that the government is 'stealing' private enterprise jobs because a clothes producer (FPI) is shifting production? Or is it that we should be upset that the government is not dictating where a private company (FPI) should source its production?

              IMO unless they are consciously frauding someone, decisions made by a business operator (FPI) should be up to them and to help them build the best value product they can. In the end, that benefits the customer. Isn't that what free enterprise is all about?

                The article claims that the government is required to deal with FPI, even if they aren't the lowest bidder. That's not free enterprise.

                    The story has some merit then.

                    But special interests are special interests. These stories are a dime a dozen. If there's outrage, we really should focus on the one's that are causing monumental distortions/damage such as oil, drug, insurance, military suppliers...and not the smallest one's we can find because the have the word government in them.

                        If they tried enforcing obscenity laws, 2014 and 2016 would have a new political phenomena named after Larry Flynt where 60% of men as usual support Republicans in polls but turns into 8% when they get into the private voting booth.

                          Either that, or these people start looking towards the Libertarian party.

                            Both the views of the party from the days of Dole, Bush I, etc as well as the views of Mitt Romney himself have slid to the right from the 90s when Goldwater was considered even too liberal for the party. Likewise today the GOP is seeing moderates getting voted out at tea partiers coming in with a platform further to the right.

                            In a yet another sign that the move to the right over the last 20some years is not enough...conservative pundits are predicting that a Romney loss will usher the end of the GOP:

                            Right-wing radio: Romney loses, GOP
                            Politico

                            Leading conservative talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham are both arguing that the Republican party will or should be shut down if Mitt Romney loses in November -- an idea that, however hard to believe, gives you an indication of the right wing's dissatisfaction with the Republican party.

                            "If you can't beat Barack Obama with this record, then shut down the party. Shut it down, start new, with new people. Because this is a gimme election, or at least it should be," Ingraham said on her radio program yesterday. "Election after election, we hire people who have lost previous campaigns, who have run campaigns that have failed, who have messaged campaigns where the message fell flat, and they keep getting re-hired."

                            Where Ingraham made an argument, Limbaugh made a prediction: The Republicans would fall, but not before blaming the conservative base for their woes and opening a window for a third, more conservative party to take their place.

                            "If Obama wins, let me tell you what it's the end of: The Republican Party. There's gonna be a third party that's gonna be oriented toward conservatism. I know Rand Paul thinks libertarianism. And I know if Obama wins, the Republican Party is gonna try to maneuver things so conservatives get blamed," he said.

                            "The only problem is, right now Romney's not running a conservative campaign. But they're gonna set it up to say, 'Well, the right sat home,' or, 'The right made Romney be other than who he is.' They'll try to deflect the blame, but they got who they want."

                              Which would be better than the current GOP in as much as it kicks the social conservatives out on their ***. But there's still plenty as a moderate to not like about the current Libertarian party platform (ie, it's pro-gold standard, abolish the fed, RON PAUL-based economic platform).

                              But at least it'd be a major step in the right direction.

                                Rush will say anything for ratings. Remember he was going to move to Costa Rica if Obama won in '08?

                                I would love it if the two parties in this country were libertarian-left (Democratic) vs libertarian-right (Libertarian), but the authoritarian strain is too strong in the population, so there will always be a base for the Republicans.
