Buying those things requires both.

Lotteries are for people who failed mathematics.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

That wasn't "lash-out". You would know it should that happen.

So you kids prefer the "charge it" to later generations logic that prevails in this administration. "Gimme my tax break". "I deserve it". "I worked harder than that person". "Just charge it to my grandkids."

I think that is called "I want my piece of the pie, I don't care who pays or who suffers". A NeoCon mantra. Phil and George would be proud.

YES, it is a tax on stupidity.

You are stuck in binary thinking. Life is more complex than that.

I want to reduce government, reduce taxes, reduce spending, increase liberty and increase personal responsibility for life.

Show me a candidate who stands for those objectives and I'll support that candidate. You can have your cons, paleocons, neocons, libs, social libs, social democrats, socialists, communists, etc. All of them enlarge the government.

In the history of the planet, there has never been a government whose goal was to devolve power to its citizens, increase liberty and decrease acquisition of private wealth.

The invasion of Iraq stand as a dramatic roadblock to four of your five qualifiers, and the Bush administration in general, whom you seem to hold in some high regard, all five, which makes your qualifiers seem rather too fluid...
