Looking at the Family Values clown she is running against, I'll probably vote for her too.
    Franco - You originated this thread - You routinely castigate folks for voting for what they consider the best option - Now you want to operate by a different standard - Tell the readers, Are YOU a HYPOCRITE? It looks to me like you qualify .

But we aren't going to spend money to educate him.

    At least the auto companies make a durable good. Ball games are a short expensive thrill.

    Why is one set of government subsidies wrong in the case of the banks and the car companies and OK for professional sports teams. I need some insight into the conservative mind, here. Enlighten me.
    You are arguing apples & oranges - the feds & the states are two different venues - I know no fiscal conservatives who believe in any form of subsidy .

    Yes he did. Bad move on a bad bill brought by the Republicans, Senjem and Rosen, filled with all kinds of bad fiscal projections to pay for it. BUt they did say it will provide lots and lots of jobs.

    The issue is consistency in philosophy in regard to public funds. State or Federal -- both issues are nationwide, especially when the NFL gets off as a tax exempt entity. You may not be for any type of subsidy, but a lot of conservatives look the other way when a barrel of pork rolls their way.

    Having the name does not mean they adhere to the brand - but from your vantage point, a lot of people would qualify as conservative IYM .

    \Only a different standard in your mind! I support the most Libertarian politicians, no matter which Party they belong to. Landrieu may lean Liberal but what you fail to consider are the politicians she has run against and what they stood for. Just recently, on another thread you proclaimed yourself to be a Libertarian. Yet, you refuse to support any of the politicians running that are supported by the Libertarian Party. That is what I call hypocritical!
    The Libertarian Party believes that all persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. A call for the repeal of the income tax, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes. LP.org
