"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

I wouldn't run against Franco or zeus.
I will argue religion and politics with them, but I feel they are both fine men and quality guys.
I think 2 of us will come up short and the one that wins will likely be doing a fair amount of gloating, as though this matters.
I think there will be a bit of injured pride for the 2 that lose, likely myself and zeus.
I don't think any of the 3 of us are losers.
I would find it difficult to describe exactly what either of those 2 men stand for exactly on every issue.
I am confident neither of them could accurately describe my positions either.
I would imagine that if it came to it, we would all 3 be shoulder to shoulder to defend our country if that call came.
I try to stand by my convictions, I try to keep my explanations brief, clear and relevant.
I try also to remain consistant.
Much gets lost in the transfer of information on the internet due to the lack of hearing inflection and seeing body language.
Often, the last post of a thread is read and responded to without an understanding of the context.
More often than not, no one reads and comprehends, they just wait for their turn to post.
I do read much of what is posted, but I myself am guilty of this from time too time as well.
Not criticizing, just the way it is.

RK is still in the lead. No dead people voting while the thread was gone?
Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.
Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.
