This is nothing new. According to evolutionary theory, all species are constantly mutating.
Whether those mutations are beneficial or not is determined by how well its carrier survives. Therefore, if I mutate and grow elephant feet, that won't help me survive any better and would probably increase my chances of dying off.
However, if I were to mutate and develop the ability to hear 2x better than my fellow homosapiens, I would survive and thus reproduce, making the mutation a part of future generations and eventually integrating it into the general population
through the interbreeding of my offspring with others. Thus, survival of the fittest (and those best mutated).

lol. these were not arabs that were insulted, so no embassies will be burned over a piece of moon ro...wood

As for our lovely Teddy, he was anti-capitalist, pro-union, anti-big business, anti-achievement (read: hatred toward the extremely wealthy), for regulation (read: control of industry [how'd that work out for the airlines?]), and pushed for national healthcare.
So to reaffirm my original stance -- yes, I am calling him a liberal socialist.
Finally, re-evaluate your interpretation and meaning of words. Nowhere in my first post did I write anything indicate of "rightist" or conservative leanings. Assuming that I'm a right-wing conservative only because I disagree with you is just plain...sad
