Reminds me of a great quote by Churchill -

"If you're not a lib in your 20s you don't have a heart
&
If your're not a conservative in your 30s (and beyond) you don't have a brain"

Personally, I'm a LiberDemoCan

I honestly can't say I'm either. There's just too many things on both sides I agree and disagree with. Besides, anymore, it's just one big popularity contest. Either will say whatever you want them to.

A staffer said to determine if your senator or representative is a crook check and see if he/she grew richer by representing you.

When Obama brings a new staffer to the hill it raises the average IQ of the party both Chicago and DC.

I think that all of federal politics could be helped if Congress were held to the same standard as the President. Two terms life time. No exceptions no matter what.

It's not a dumb question. It stands for Democrat.

former dem who never could stomach the dem's fiscal irresponsibility (Rep. aren't much better, though they talk a better game). Took me 25 years to figure out that my "live and let live" philosophy and dedication to personal responsibility made me a "classical liberal" - i.e one that believes our freedoms are ours because we are human, not because the government "guarantees" them. I'll agree with "tea party" republicans that the government which governs least, governs best, but I remain a civil libertarian in that I do not believe regulation of morality, particularly on a federal level, has any place in a country which prides itself on individual liberty and freedom. Homogenous solutions simply can't work in a 300million + society, we are too different to all live by the same laws, which makes the confederation of states our founders designed all the more attractive in today's world.

/rant!

What's wrong with allowing your child to choose for themselves, and standing behind their decision?
