  1. A commitment to liberty across the board that is missing from the two major parties.
  2. Trump gets punished for his scumbaggery with a Democratic House, and the Democrats get punished for the horrendous way they handled the Kavanaugh nomination. Have one on the house, American people.
  3. For good reason. Lots of demons have taken up that name and cause.
  4. The Nordic countries tax the people making "50K or so" way more heavily than the US does.
  5. We can try, but advocates of that should point out that the Nordic model includes massive taxes on the middle class. They have the US equivalent of a 60% tax on income starting at $60K. Plus a VAT. We should also point out that there are huge cultural differences between the Nordic countries and the US. And massive global responsibility differences. And yes, size of population and territory matter as well. This is a common failing of the left. Overestimating the ability of bureaucrats to implement programs like this and underestimating the unintended consequences of doing so.
  6. Because this is a whole different animal. If we want Scandinavian benefits, we should pay Scandinavian tax rates, about 60% on income over $60K.
  7. Strongly opposed across the board, however if we get these policies, we need massive tax increases on the middle class to preserve some relationship between the benefits people receive and the price they pay.
  8. So the possibility of tyranny is no longer relevant?
  9. Little Red Corvette Sign O The Times Purple Rain
  10. A Day In The Life Strawberry Fields Money (That's What I Want)
  11. Oh, I look at the positions also. So far it's been pretty straightforward. I hate the positions of everyone that has identified as a Democratic Socialist, and I'm sure I will hate the positions of anyone that identifies as a Democratic Fascist.
  12. Yes, but it's really stupid to run as a socialist, given how damaged the label is by real world socialism. I would never vote for someone claiming to be a Democratic Socialist, nor would I vote for a person claiming to be a Democratic Fascist. If people are so ignorant of the historical associations they conjure up, they are too stupid to vote for.
  13. These guys can't be real Nazi's, or they would be collaborating with the Muslims against the Jews, not protesting against them.
  14. Great, 2016 was the two lying crooks facing off, and 2020 could be the democratic communist versus the democratic fascist.
  15. The vast majority of the people that drowned were late 60's-70's (including the "captain") or were under 10.
  16. Firing Line for TV. Book is 1984. Harvest of Sorrow for film.
  17. Not a huge Boston fan, but More Than A Feeling was pretty much pop perfection. Also saw them in concert when they toured behind the first album. They played so many encores the fans started leaving.
  18. Big Whiskey Myers fan. Looks like they got a big boost from being featured on the show.
  19. It's a shame. This one ridiculous decision has forever warped the Supreme Court nomination process. The Senate cares more about questioning about the "right" to abortion more than they care about any real constitutional issue.
  20. One of the greats. Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Creeper, Hawk and Dove, Mr. A, Question, Captain Atom. Responsible for some great characters.
