36. Not a "Teabagger"
What part of "I'd suggest that if we're going to spend significant $$$ we spend it on retraining the unemployed and help them get out from under the mortgages they cannot afford so they can move to wherever the jobs are." sounds like a "Teabagger" position to you? Look I'm with you guys on a lot of issues. I've got no problem with Gays. I think the Feds should stay out of abortion. I think Gitmo and the Patriot Act were terrible Ideas. I think the war on drugs has been a giant waste of time and, more importantly freedom. That said, some of the economic thought I see here borders on magical thinking. Don't get me wrong, the neocons are/were just as bad for the last 30 years when they acted like taxes were bad but borrowing was just fine. FWIW I'll probably disagree with you guys at times on 2A and environmental/energy issues as well if that matters to you. I tend not to post when I agree so I'll probably appear more conservative than I really am.

That said, I've been respectful and brought my own thoughts and data with me, not taking points from some blog or Faux. I'm sure I do bring some different underlying assumptions like the idea that a true free market allocates resources more efficiently (not necessarily more fairly though) than government in most cases. If you think my numbers are wrong that's great, tell me what YOU think they should be. If you disagree with my reasoning then tell me where you think the flaw is and more importantly WHY. If you find having an intelligent discussion threatening and would prefer living in an echo chamber then I'd suggest it's time to step away from the keyboard for a bit and go experience the world. If I step over the line I'm sure the mods will let me know.

Cheers!
