Ron Paul:Why does changing the party in power never change policy? Could it be that the views of both parties are essentially the same?"THis statement brought to mind an exchange I had on the Retire Early Liberal edition board a short while ago. A response to my original post included the below.Instead conservatives react as they always do when confronted by facts and numbers. Instead of examining the evidence for themselves they: 1. Attack the messenger2. Sow seeds of doubt3. Impune the character of knowledgable people4. Invoke conspiracies5. Advance implausible alternate theoriesMy reply;"Funny I could probably find this sentiment over @ campfire discussion group with the exception that the word liberals would be substituted for the word conservatives."Could it be that both parties are run by the same corporate & special interest groups that have purchased our representatives? And that elections are merely a distraction, like the circuses in Rome were, to set us at each other throats? Ron Paul:"The misunderstanding that tolerance is an endorsement of certain activities, motivates many to legislate moral standards which should only be set by individuals making their own choices.The lack of tolerance & civility still seems to be the state of our society today. Perhaps thats the flaw of humanity.Brings to mind another great Italian-American's quote; "Can't we all just get along?" <g>
