For what it's worth, I live in a Republican area in which the majority of voters have voted against the Republican candidate for President and against the Republican candidates for Senate and Congress (Santorum and a congressional lookalike) in the last two elections, while voting in favor of Republicans in almost every local contest.
    Been looking for 1 like that myself for a long time. Except for the raising taxes to balance a bloated budget I agree with your points.

    But life is interesting, after 10 years of attending City Council meetings, I decided to throw my hat in the ring. I have attended all Budget Committee meetings & cannot believe the financial illiteracy.

    Our Mayor, a lifelong D is doing all within her power to derail my candidacy. That has to tell you something. While I don't believe anyone is on the take, there are no checks & balances.

    I guess it shouldn't surprise me but it always does. Take an average individual put them in a position of some authority, give them access to more money than they have ever dealt with then sit back and watch the lunacy.
    The take is still going on Marvin it's just getting harder to spot.

    But it's like the bond rating agency's with the CDO's. You don't know they weren't doing their homework until things turn South.

    I know of no one other than the few lefties on this forum who approve of Obongo. I read the bumper stickers. Many whom I know who voted against Bush are now having real buyer's remorse. Is that surprising? In fact, many of them get real testy when the subject is broached.
    OK. I can't help myself. Marvin, who voted against Bush in the last election?

    Running for City Council...? Oh yeah!

    What does it tell you Marvin?

That's just my opinion, but he seems to have acquired those psychotic darting eyes and restless affect of a schizo ever since returning. Not saying he doesn't have a valid point now and then, but he thrives on fanning hatred and fear.

    How do I notice....oh, I guess I watch him now and then....but you already knew that.
    I appreciate your sense of humor in the humorless desert of RTF/PP.

    I'm gonna let this one go....there's no sense of us arguing amongst ourselves what is in someone else's mind. Other than Michael Richards (Kramer) and Mel Gibson, most keep their feelings inside.

    No, it's just that some arguments have no logical conclusion, and I've learned when it's time to stop wasting time. Trying to prove what is in someone's head in impossible and only open to interpretation, although some here seem to think they can.

    When arguments do have a logical conclusion, they are frequently ignored...
