I believe for every individual who would vote reflexively for a D, there is an individual doing the same for an R. If you don't believe me just come to the restaurant at my country club, Mussolini himself could get their votes if he had an R next to his name.

The dumber the citizenry the easier to scare them into giving the government power with nebulous security threats and scare mongering tactics.

I would not be all that surprised to see one skull and bones club "OZ" behind the curtain controlling both the wicked witch of the D's and the wicked witch of the R's, immune from any retribution as we in the general public tilt at the straw man windmills he has set up for us.
I won't be getting on either the D ship or the R ship for fear of someone on the dock yelling to me on the gangway "it's a cookbook".
Aside from the missing "i", you're pretty much up to speed with the rest of us now. Welcome aboard.

Being "up to speed w/" a bunch of Kookbergers is not something desirable...

Yet when you read informed opinion from other cultures and other parts of the world where democracy also exists most will espouse that the two political parties in the United States are BOTH within the same narrow range of Moderate.

It is only on the fringe of the two parties that you really get into the what most folks might consider extreme.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Shouldn't you wait until you've actually caught up before you make that decision?
