14. do you people
... think about nothing but winning elections?

Does it ever occur to any of you to discuss public policy -- what a government oughta be doing when it gets elected?? And the merits, or perhaps even feasibility, of those policies?

I'll bet that the Democrats could get elected if they persuaded all the car drivers in the US that they would remove all federal taxes from gasoline. And what a fine (and feasible) public policy that would make.

"Being for gun rights also goes a long way to immunize a candidate to the 'too liberal' label that dem pres candidates are always smeared with every four years."

Yeah, being "too liberal". Now that's a lable to be avoided at all costs.
