So, how do Democrats fight Republicans? Ad hominem. Don't like Bush ? Then Call Bush stupid. They didn't like Reagan, so they said he was senile. They didn't like Dole, so they said he was out of touch. They don't like Bush, so they say he is stupid. Dukakis didn't exactly help the situation either.
To be fair, Doel said that Bob Dole would say anything bad about Bob Dole's oponent. But when Bob Dole saw that Bob Dole was losing, Bob Dole came in thrashing.
I remember asking a Dole supporter why he didn't have a Dole bumper sticker. He basically answered, "I don't want to be the idiot with the Dole sticker after Dole loses."
Liberitarians are Socialists in disguise. The Tax Payer's party (Nationally, the Constituion Party) is more what the Liberitarian's should be. Except tall the Xian stuff. Best part
We propose legislation to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, and will veto any authorization, appropriation, or continuing resolution which contains any funding whatsoever for that illicit and unconstitutional agency. We are opposed to the flat-rate tax, national sales tax, and value added tax proposals that are being promoted as an improvement to the current tax system. The Sixteenth Amendment does not provide authority for an un-apportioned direct tax.
Moreover, it is our intention to replace, with a tariff based revenue system supplemented by excise taxes, the current tax system of the U.S. government (including income taxes, payroll taxes, and estate taxes.)
To the degree that tariffs on foreign products, and excises, are insufficient to cover the legitimate Constitutional costs of the federal government, we will offer an apportioned "state-rate tax" in which the responsibility for covering the cost of unmet obligations will be divided among the several states in accordance with their proportion of the total population of the United States, excluding the District of Columbia. Thus, if a state contains 10 percent of the nation's citizens, it will be responsible for assuming payment of 10 percent of the annual deficit.
I like their attitude (so far, form the little i have read), but some stuff is a bit wacky.
