Do you ever just turn off all the noise, walk into the forest alone, and form cognitive thoughts? Try it some time, a little introspection never hurt anyone.

Still waiting for you to actually have a substantive post on this thread instead of platitudes and bromides.

As usual Beck sets a poll with simpleton examples to glean an answer HE wants to achieve.

His failure to accurately define any of the choices and limit the choices to what HE considers good examples is naive. But then again this is what we have come to expect from Beck.

Wonder how this would all change if he told all his listeners that, under Paul everyone's State Income taxes and sales taxes would multiply exponentially and interstate services would still be federally taxed and we would still have Federal Taxes to pay for much infrastructure and the $11Trillion National Debt?

I would think the thought of multiplying taxes and replicating services might put a different spin on things. Maybe he could just show us all a fully scaled working model of a successful "Ron Paul Type Libertarianism" from which we could decide.

I'll take that as a 'no'.

Hey Qubes! McBear says your boy Ron Paul would increase our taxes exponentially! Care to tell him where he is wrong? Or Should I?

Still waiting. But I guess I am just waiting for you to tell me what to think.

So are you saying that talk radio is responsible for 41% of Americans believing that Saddam Hussein was personally involved in planning, organizing, and executing the 9/11/01 World Trade Center attacks?
Here is the Newsweek poll I was referring to. You can see that the asked question is pretty much as I worded it. I have no desire to make up data. And as for the disinformation leading to this wrong belief among so many people, both the talk radio and the rest of the right wing media are largely responsible. Along with systematic lies by Bush, Cheney and the rest of their team.

And here is one interesting finding: 89% of those asked could not name the Chief Justice of the US Supreme court.

Oh, now, stop that, you're starting to sound like Jay. How's that big government model working these days?

You're such a radical. Show me a full tilt anything, before you ask for a full tilt libertarian. I know you're against curtailed spending and efficient central government, but try to keep it real....
