    Like:

    1) It ISN'T "FREE!" SOMEone, SOMEwhere, has to shoulder the cost of whatever it is;

    2) When you just say what you think peeps want to hear, in order to promote yourself, it's LYING;

    3) There really IS such a thing as Ethics;

    4) We're much more alike than we are different;

    and 5) We're being sold a Bill of Goods that we'll only see the Bill for, NOT the Goods.

    With NO name-calling,

    with no insults, as hilarious as they usually are,

    can we just discuss a common goal, that benefits ALL of us?

    I've been called a MAJOR RETARD for believing that Ayn Rand was NOT speaking about selfishness, nor egoism ~

    if we do our BEST?

    Wherever we find ourselves?

    i.e. Our workplaces? If we do our best, our employment is allowed to continue. If we just monkey around and act like fools, our JOBS suffer, our companies suffer, and before you know it, we're beggars instead of the Strong Good people that we ARE at our very cores.

    This is a Christian thing, but we were MADE to want Good for ourselves and those around us. We have Heart. We Care. There IS a Spirit that lives within us, and it isn't a spirit of deceit nor selfishness.

    Being a realist I'm of the opinion that like all good things, this ship is floundering and near it's end and there is really nothing that can be done to stop it.

    Our country isn't going to implode if we don't agree on those things. It's going to implode if the Republicans keep cutting taxes for the top 2% because all that does is increase the deficit.

    More jobs were created under Clinton than Bush the father and son combined. And the rich paid higher taxes under Clinton - who also had several years of a budget surplus (no deficit spending).

    So quit believing the GOP lies and quit voting for the GOP liars and you'll be helping to save our country.

    That's not a realist.

    That's a fear mongering pessimist.

    You bring up ethics and yet people from the right think it's ethical to deny people health coverage for god knows what reason. Makes a lot of sense...

    Now something I will say that probably most people will agree on. More jobs are needed.
