They Could Never Lose

I was talking to a rational liberal friend last night (he is an engineer) and as per usual we got to talking politics. He said something I totally agree with. To wit: "If Republicans stopped trying to get their way on social issues through force of law they would never lose an election." Think about it my R friends. Long and hard.

Me? As long as we have two parties interested in using big government to get their way by force I will continue to play balance of power politics. Which explains my vote for Obama in 2004.

This statement is akin to saying "if we just got rid of the laws, there would be no crime."

Society and Money are inextricably entwined. Trying to fix one without fixing the other is like trying to remove the top or bottom step of a staircase.

When you guys get tired of attempting to build you're perpetual motion machine, you will eventually find your way to social conservatism, which is in essence, being responsible.
