Who is more happy in life

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. The Dems are lost at the moment but that is a result of their complacency with being in charge of Congress for over 40 years. In a few years, that will change and we'll start to see embarassments like Kennedy, Boxer, et cetera get ousted and more moderate Dems take over. The days of winning elections by pandering to those who want Big Givt to take care of them(and in most cases, I can barely call them liberal, rather they are apolitical and clueless) are ending IMO.

    Now, there are plenty of reactionary stereotypes to around for all political persuasions, but I think it unfair to paint all liberals with the same brush. It is a time of war and people are passionate about either not wanting war or staying the course come what may. I have been shouted down by liberal and neocon alike for my views, which tend to be centrist overall, and the venom is the same.

    Extreme Liberals may get disgusted with me and attack my character, Neocons will attack my ideals and my patriotism. Both methods seek to elevate the attacker above the attacked. Both piss me off and I've stared down hippy and rightwing nut alike.

    I could have written this myself. I loathed everyone and everything for a time. Glad that is over!

    I don't necessarily think that widespread social change is possible, but from my experience teaching in an urban high school, I can honestly say that while societal change may be impossible, individuals can help individuals. I have experienced it first hand. The school where I worked sent many kids from disadvantaged backgrounds to good schools where they continued to thrive.
    How many lies does it take to make one a liar?...One...Have you ever lied?

  3. when will then be now


























    soon

  4. I don`t base happiness like most others and realize it`s not found in things that fade away.

    Political leanings? I voted Regan ... Perot... Clinton... and anybody but a Bush. I think drugs should be legal, social security overhauled and Zealots outlawed. Screw the price of gas, then maybe we can upgrade the national rail system which I can ride for just about free. I think its a joke that the cost of all utilities has seemd to doubled in the last 8 years and somebody got some s`plainin to do. So yea KNuttball I`m guilty.

  5. You guys are right, Communism doesn't work but why do the Democrats have to be moderate? I refuse to believe the future of the party should be to copy the GOP. Since the Republicans are moving towards right wing authoritarianism, I think that the Democrats should aim towards left wing libertarianism.

    The biggest claim is that the old system isn't working. People are still using drugs. Serious crimes are still being committed. People are still committing death penalty-like crimes and its not deterring anything. So I say eliminate the death penalty entirely. I say this:
    1. Eliminate the Death Penalty.
    2. Release all prisoners for drug consumptions and/or dealing. Keep the prisons stocked with killers, robbers, and pedophiles, the way prisons should be.
    3. Require tax stamps on drugs. They would be varying in what drug of course but say a pound of marijuana would be taxed $500.
    4. The tax proceeds go to create drug facilities for rehabilitation and drug education. For inner cities, create recreational centers where kids can play sports instead of do drugs
    5. Eliminate subsidies, bailout money, and other business-socialist moves. This isn't capitalism, its imperialism. Capitalism works best in a free market. Businesses will soon have to make a choice: pay the CEOs $50 million or see their company run.
    6. Create an amendment eliminating lobby groups and heavily restricting donations of large amounts of cash.
    7. Tougher SEC ruling. Like those tools that charged an extra $1000 for no real reason. This is acceptable for luxury items but for medical or essential uses, price gouging is unacceptable and will pay heavy fines.
    8. If the government must give money to a business, its in a form of a loan at the same interest rate as the current interest rates.
    9. Elimination of gun checks. No more weapons will be illegal but a private facility or public building could determine what is acceptable or what is not.
    10. Overall spending will be balanced with $250 billion+ annually in surplus, dedicated to paying off the National Debt. This will take 100 years or so but we shouldn't try to pay it off too much, too quickly

    I got more to say but whatever, you get my drift.

    Because my form of republicanism is moving to the extreme the democratic party had already done so. If both parties want to stay in some sort of power, they have to find memebers that are willing to either form another party.. or bring the democratic party back to how it was originally formed. I've said it before and I say it again. In theory, the democratic party is the most correct party. But in the past 30 years they have not been holding to their theory.

    The biggest claim is that the old system isn't working. People are still using drugs. Serious crimes are still being committed. People are still committing death penalty-like crimes and its not deterring anything. So I say eliminate the death penalty entirely. I say this:
    1. Eliminate the Death Penalty.
    I like Texas. If the case has 3 viable witnesses.. kill him. Saves millions of dollars.
    1. Release all prisoners for drug consumptions and/or dealing. Keep the prisons stocked with killers, robbers, and pedophiles, the way prisons should be.
    Agreed Drugs are not a crime. Its a sickness.. and with that in mind.. so is pedohilia.. they should not be in there either.. they were born to like little boys and girls. America will never accept that like they do homosexuality SO for both cases we shouldn't let them in public.. we must create another form of detention centres base only on long term forced rehab. Over period of years even. Unless the act of why there were arrested was cause due to a violent crime to obtain money etc for more drugs.
    1. Require tax stamps on drugs. They would be varying in what drug of course but say a pound of marijuana would be taxed $500.
    Agree. Tax the **** out of drugs that are called "recreational" do better work to stop CDS from coming acoss our borders... oh wait.. that would require border security.. no president will ever do that
    1. The tax proceeds go to create drug facilities for rehabilitation and drug education. For inner cities, create recreational centers where kids can play sports instead of do drugs
    recreational centers good.. everyone needs to play sports. it is the human's choice to take drugs or not.. education aka mind control, well keep kids away or bring them closer. Most drug use has nothing to do with poverty and inner city.. just different types of drug use does. have no real point to this bolded thing here.
    1. Eliminate subsidies, bailout money, and other business-socialist moves. This isn't capitalism, its imperialism. Capitalism works best in a free market. Businesses will soon have to make a choice: pay the CEOs $50 million or see their company run.
    Yeah but you cant.. You would have to then take away alot of things put in place that doesn't allow the true majority to rule. Unions etc. I am all for taking away affirm. action, unions etc.. will save the american people billions...but we could be talking about two different things
    1. Create an amendment eliminating lobby groups and heavily restricting donations of large amounts of cash.
    AGREE lobbiest. But private party donations should not be on the chopping block. If you have money and wish to donate 2000000 bucks.. why shouldn't you..
    1. Tougher SEC ruling. Like those tools that charged an extra $1000 for no real reason. This is acceptable for luxury items but for medical or essential uses, price gouging is unacceptable and will pay heavy fines.
    why is it acceptable for luxury items... it is not american to punish those that succeed in the system...
    1. If the government must give money to a business, its in a form of a loan at the same interest rate as the current interest rates.
    eh.. no because obviously loans for buisnesses are greater than those for private Doton & Lemonjello Q American. Private buisness have been proving to be the driving force of the current economy that we have now.. and it really is good. To take money out of the hands of these buisness would be horrible. Now.. if we say.. if your buisness has a net worth of over ohhhh 33mil. then yes.. i can see that.. but .. thats not very republican of me ;-)
    1. Elimination of gun checks. No more weapons will be illegal but a private facility or public building could determine what is acceptable or what is not.
    I don't know on this one. What is the difference between the government saying No. or some fat guy behind a desk with an orange hunting hat saying no?
    1. Overall spending will be balanced with $250 billion+ annually in surplus, dedicated to paying off the National Debt. This will take 100 years or so but we shouldn't try to pay it off too much, too quickly
    Still say it.. National debt is meaningless... defended that a number of times in other threads..




    WOW.. see.. we can sorta agree on something.. when i am president.. you will be my sec. of liberalism.. and i will have you try to give me information that we can then find the balance to... errr.. lol but i wont forget my base.. what ever that is today...

  7. I think the better your gf is...the happier you are..no matter who you are tricked into voting for...

    Exactly why conservatives are more happy.

    If you're a liberal you're probably going out with some hairy, pissed off, overly opinionated feminist who makes your life a living hell!!!
