The middle and working class, unlike EVERYONE else on either side, are not allowed to vote for their own interests. They are the ONLY group that have to follow ‘principles’ and vote strictly on the lines of ‘C’onservative values lest they be berated as knuckle-dragging Nazi thugees even if ‘C’onservative means their own economic destruction.

Well, i’m not a ‘C’onservative. I don’t follow the neo-con endless war path, I might if Kristol and the rest of the phony brave neo-con chickenhawks send their own kids to go fight and die, but that won’t happen. The coward class would stop calling for war if their asses on the line.

I quit being a ‘C’onservative when that meant destroying the American economy through uncontrolled immigration, endless regulation that only benefits the politically connected, and polices that openly drive down wages and send jobs overseas. Maybe if India started putting out lawyers and column writers and replacing some of them here via h1-b, I might be able to at least stomach it a bit more.

I am not a chamber of commerce ‘c’onservative.

Nor are we.

The elitist “electoral college” idea has to go!

@ Uncle Vladdi,
Actually, no; the purpose of the electoral college has nothing to do with elitism, but rather, with federalism and the sovereignty of the states – in other words, keeping the locus of governance closer to the people most affected by it. The real problem is that the federal government has usurped so much power that the states have become, for all practical purposes, little more than administrative districts controlled by the federal government.
