He believes in the free markets and is against policing the world.

I understand that people might say that a free market economy with low taxes works against the middle class. But I don't think the problem with the middle class is low taxes on the rich. The problem is that Americans are the worst savers and spenders in the world. We have more than a trillion dollars in credit card debt alone. I believe that lower capital gains/dividend taxes will provide a greater incentive for all these people to invest instead of overspend. And one more thing, people may think that I support lower taxes for only the rich, but I think the middle and lower classes deserve tax cuts too.

Silly Democratic candidates, that they couldn't foresee this poll.

Yeah it's odd when someone like Ron Paul is the truest "Republican" on the ballot.

Ah OK, thanks. Strange. That entry was just posted today, which explains why I wasn't finding it (and also renders any expectation that the candidates at last week's convention would've known about it senseless). At any rate, as I guessed, that isn't one of their main-page diarists, nor a very active one either, judging from his small number of entries over a year-and-a-half. Again, 61 out of 178 respondents indicating 'don't care' to one entry in one minor diary on an open site with more than 100,000 members and hundreds of diarists strikes me as a pointless thing to get worked into a huff about.

The term strawman comes to mind.

Yeah. I wonder exactly how many people really do care if a candidate has had anything to do with a website?

Or do they care more about how the candidate is going to handle the war, the economy, the healthcare catastrophe, education, civil rights, etc.?

It's a tough call. Very very tough.

It's not even the rude comments and pictures themselves that are the problems. It is the fact that they are not taken down. Any blog in the world will have people posting hateful things, but most of those sites have supervision and will delete such posts. Kos does nothing. Therefore, the operators (or lack of) at the Kos are just as much at fault as are the people who post the rude material. Any website that wants to be taken seriously needs to be responsible and have standards of behavior. I see none there.

No, of course those things are important, but attending Kos tells me what kind of person they are, and who they are trying harder to appeal to.

Need more? Here's Dodd looking like a fool-

I'm not saying they cant say it. I'm saying that it should be taken down. They can go wish Tony Snow ill elsewhere. There is a responsibility factor involved. The site should take a stand and create standards. Dont start to feel sorry for the people who want Tony Snow dead.

Some people say awful things online about Elizabeth Edwards' cancer too. Unfortunately people have the right to be completely insensitive and inhuman and heartless.

First off, I never said I didnt have a problem with it. Second, please give me an example of such hate group.

I don't feel sorry for anyone. That's the hard part about free speech, sometimes you won't agree with it.

Look this website argument has failed.

Why don't you go back to trying and defining "far-left" and examples of pandering.

Yet look, you are condemning Republicans for going to "hate groups", yet not Democrats. Be consistent.

I have explained how they have pandered. You just ignore it.
