CVX, I think everyone is capable of seeing flaws within their own party but it doesn't leave us much choice but take some good with bad.
The whole poor people argument is getting old. Goverment has been keeping poor people poor FOREVER, government regulation and government fixed housing costs, etc.
Look no further than the urban prairies across the nation that have been governed by democrats for decades and show me what they do for the poor people.
If the right could ever get a chance to prove a REAL FREE MARKET works, life would be better. That's going to take a whole lot of government un doing just like the education thread.

Reminds me of the lady in PA in the city next to me who is being targeted by her city government for zoning issues to feed up to 600 kids at her house with food provided to her through the Archdiocese of Pa. All 600 aren't there at the same time. It's just a bunch of crap that someone living in poverty that cant afford 1500.00 dollars to pay the city for permission to feed hungry kids and even if she could raise the 1500, I think it would be better spent on the kids than given to the government for an OK to do so!!! WTH
