    If it's a turgid test, I'll bet you haven't voted since Nixon.

      I voted for The Trickster twice and would gladly do so again. And haven't missed so much as a school board election since.

        Last time I pulled the (D) lever for a DC office was in 1976. I have voted (D) since, but not nationally. The Party does not represent my views.

        On a more introspective note, this article in the WaPo on one columnist's observations on the Middle Least.

              The best way to stop the Neocons is to bring back the draft. When it's your precious unique snowflake who will be missile fodder, all of a sudden patriotic appeals to abstract principles of nationalism somehow sound a little... hollow.

              Put every signator of the PNAC, AEI, and AIPAC charters in the infantry along with every one of their descendants and then maybe we can talk. Robert Kagan and Victor Davis Hanson are always going on about the glory that was the Greek hoplite. Time to put up or shut up.

                So you still support his corruption, racism, anti-Semitism, etc? While I'm not surprised you feel that way, I didn't expect you to come right out and admit it. A vote for Nixon - definitely something to be proud of.

                  He worships a mentally unbalanced ideologue who tore up the Constitution to illegally trade weapons to the Iranians to fund death squads in El Salvador and terrorists in Nicaragua. You really think Nixon's anti-semitism is going to keep him up at night?

                          I would go one step further and have universal military service. Not everyone fights, in fact something like 60% - 65% of people in service are in administration / support / logistics IIRC. Military service is probably the only government jobs-training program that actually results in employable skills among the participants.

                                Interesting. You overlook the fact that he ended a war you fooking "peace loving" Democrats started and expanded, and expanded and expanded. Oh well, just an untidy detail.
