Like with so many other things, the Democrats like to pretend like they have some kind of higher ground because they see the Republicans as worse, when really all they are is bought and paid for by different special interests who's pockets aren't quite as deep.
The charlatans in office, Obama and the Romney campaign included, are going out of their ways to make the economic futures of their kids significantly worse.
It's time to dispel this silly little myth, that Democratic talking heads continue to push, that the individual mandate is a conservative piece of legislation.
With this childish attack, camp Obama vomited this absurd speculatory attack at Romney and ceded its some of that high ground.
Watching 50 states look for ways to tackle the health insurance mandate issue sounds like a fantastic idea to me.
Despite tough sanctions on the Iranian government, they still were able to get embargoed American technology that has helped them track down and arrest—and then assuredly torture and otherwise harm—critics of the regime.
President Obama's budget shows him to be the same sort of self-serving Washington politician that have gotten us in the mess we're in now.
Both parties are becoming more and more ideologically pure each year, making the gap between them larger and larger. Not even the most liberal republican is in the same area of the political spectrum as the most conservative republican.
If you're familiar with Cato, you wont be at all surprised that they're trying to fight off a hostile takeover attempt by the Koch brothers. Disagree with them or not, Cato takes it's work very seriously, and doesn't want a couple of fire breathing polemics holding the strings at their beloved think tank.
The facts are much less exciting than either party would have you believe. The Republicans omit that there are great expanses of already open land and the Democrats paint a picture where their plans would bring down gas prices and move us along to cleaner and cheaper technology, but battery tech just plain isn't there yet.
The Republican party wants to squander the chance to win this election by keeping up their circular firing squad, and listening to advice from train wrecks like Sarah Palin.
Bipartisanship isn't a good thing when a bargain poses a threat to national security.

It's absolutely wrong for the government to force a church to provide health coverage that covers birth control, in most cases. But it has nothing to do with religion.
Even more confusing than her pipe dream of thinking she could pass single-payer healthcare is her assertion that she could change America's primary protein source away from meat, and get rid of all sorts of personal debt... which apparently could be accomplished by "kicking out the FED."
'No Budget, No Pay' proposes that Congress wouldn't get paid if they didn't pass the budget and the 13 appropriations bills on time, by Sept. 30, each year.
The leftist ideological positioning does not necessarily align the Occupy Oakland movement with violent anarchistic factions, but so far they've allowed them to take the banner and run with it.
The rub is in the funding. Romney rails on Obama all the time for exploding the national debt, but his plans are also brimming with ideas that would either cost money, or take money out of current revenue. This is an attack on the future prosperity of the American middle class.
