    I believe he "elaborated" when he posed the question.

    And how would a law apply to corporations but not people? Let me put it this way, if a "corporation" breaks a law, who goes to jail?

    I believe that genes are considerably more important than any other factor in determining ability levels and behavior.

    This belief pushes me to the left and the right. On the one hand I see little moral significance in the distribution of wealth and income. On the other I doubt that social reform and social welfare spending can do much to solve social problems that are caused by personal inadequacies.

    I lean to the left on economic and environmental issues, and to the right on social issues, especially crime and punishment. I am a moderate Democrat, who disagrees with a few stands the Democratic Party took after the death of John Kennedy.

    You're reasoning is skewed beyond recognition.

    This nation was founded upon the principles declared in it's foundational action... "We hold these truths to be self evident ... that all men are created equal. ..."

    Note that singular point wherein all men are recognized to be equal, in the specific context of their individual rights and the responsibilities of the individual, which sustain those God-given rights. There is no 'collectivism' to be found anywhere within the foundational principles upon which America, the concept and The United States which stems from that concept, rests.

    Where the individual is well versed in the recognition and defense of, as well as the adherence to those principles, issues regarding the collective are axiomatically addressed and satisfied. This is NEVER true, where the same would-be problem is addressed from the inverse, or through the irrational notion of trying to solve for 'the problems of the collective'.

    All amendments post the 10th are poorly considered, as the individuals writing them fell short in their sense of and respect for objectivity and this 'problem' only deepens where the culture turns more inward as it falls into the abyss of subjectivism, OKA: Socialism.

    This is all very simple stuff... .

    A balanced budget amendment is like a promise to go on a diet, quit drinking, and begin an exercise program six months from now.

    There is no 'Left' on economic issues, in terms of sound, sustainable economics. It's math... .

    Leftist economics, is simply unsound reasoning applied to economics. Socialism, in all of its innumerable facets is merely the blue-print for building the economic 'House of Cards'. There is no such thing as a sustainable socialist economic model. At least not where the exercise is to be executed through a human culture. One assumes your 'feelings' on the issue are being considered as such applies to humanity, so... well, you know.

    What's more is that there is no separating socialism from the Leftist environmental scam. The two are now and have been for generations, synonymous. Such is foolish and unworthy of consideration by anything approaching a viable adult.

    Human genetics is what it is... and altering it to adopt behavior more suited to finding 'an easier way' is a long ago discredited (Leftist) notion OKA: Eugenics.

    The solution to most, if not all issues common to humanity; certainly in terms of behavior, all center upon the aforementioned principles in, or 'laws of' nature. Where individuals recognize, respect, defend and adhere to those principles, sustainable prosperity and happiness abound, where they do not, you find chaos, calamity and catastrophe.

    Such are merely the laws of God and the rejection of such, Evil... and that is truly all there is to this crap.

    My main political belief is it takes a lot of money to run our country and I am with any Party I think can save us the most money, by reducing taxes so people have more money in their own pockets, and by reducing regulations on businesses so more people can afford to BE in business, thus creating more full-time jobs. Also by lowering corporate taxes so we can keep businesses in America, and their preferred states in which to be in business.

    You exemplify a lot of Democrats who should (and often do) vote Republican, but are loathe to admit it. The Left does a very good job of demonizing those with whom they disagree.
