Just for giggles where would you stand on this issue?
Obama is pretty far left, maybe not as far as Ted Kennedy was, but pretty far.
This article epitomizes exactly how the D's want the R's to think. Think you can win with a Ted Cruz go ahead and try. I can win money on that bet every single day. The biggest problem with the moderates you have put up is that they have to push right in the campaign to solidify their base and that drives off the centrists. There is also a distrust of the republicans by the centrists. Lets face it the talk of purity tests isn't to drive out anyone but the centrists. The conservatives are not as strong as they think they are. You will not win a general election with the take no prisoners attitude. This all goes back to how the party is fighting against itself and ought to split.

We will see if too much spending finally makes the voters alert. Ran into a person I served on a school board with 40 years ago this AM. I made the comment that I know what can be done with a $1,000 saved, his retort was I know you can. As SB members we did not see I2I on many issues but he knew I could wring a dollar for all it was worth.

Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
I love my brother in Colorado but he is the epitome of that statement....We go round and round and I admire his deep religious roots and his total comittment to his religion. This is a man who chose to not attend the civil union of his gay son because of his religious views, so he walks the walk...
But when it comes to politics he is so blinded by that same religion that it makes it difficult to have a conversation without invoking the Bible...frustrating to say the least
In my book, talking about spending in terms of a percentage to GDP is a diversion from talking about the 17 TRILLION debt. Adding a TRILLION a year to the Debt isn't what this country needs.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
C S Lewis
