Quote:You know, no matter how frustrated I continue to get with the left, its stuff like this that reminds me that republicans are clueless.
I am not sure the two are comparable right now. The left did not begin the act of dismantling government protections in the US.
Quote:The constant inability to see that taxes (even if we don't like em) are not only necessary but helpful. Republicans seem to think gubmint is evil, even though you live in a democracy. Government might be annoying, my be incompetent, but at least it is a democracy and they (should) use your tax dollars to benefit you.
Norquist is a strange guy. He is anti-all taxes. Probably for some import tax or something. Not sure.
Quote:I look at taxes the same way I look at a long queue in a shop. I might not want to stand in line waiting but I do it anyway, because if I don't wait my turn, society breaks down. that's part of living in a society.
Quote:The simple fact that this guy thought he made a brilliant point shows an 8 year old's level of understanding of life.
The guy is a clown really.
Which is why I wasn't comparing the two. I was saying that despite some extremely annoying tendencies on the left, such as screaming that everything on the right is bad, that I can't take republican ideas seriously.
