The only time the "people" win is when the Federal Government does not regulate. Regulation is strangulation and, ultimately, death.

Yeah, it was awesome when there were no labor laws, no safety rules, no controls on pollution.

Look how much damage the banks caused after deregulation of banks started in the 80's and compare that to the 4 decades previous.

Corporations need to be leashed at all times and beaten regularily.

There is no GOP candidate that can get the support of the lunatics currently in charge of that party that could win a general election.

Someone like Huntsman could win the presidency but the nutbags that control the GOP would never nominate him because he is reasonable and intelligent. Two attributes that are no longer welcome in the GOP.

Huntsman would likely have beaten Obama in 2012.

The GOP will have to jettison its extremists if it wants the white house.

Enforcing whitespace in the language weakens it.

Add in the sad decision to not make everything an expression in Python and you have a weaker language with zero benefit to go along with the enforced whitespace.

Guido is almost as stupid Rasmus.

Python used to not have any scoping at all which is why you have all those redundant self self self self self....

You are lost in the Swamps of Despair.
