  •  Can we please stop praising Paul? (0+ / 0-)

    There's plenty of Democrats who take up every "progressive" position he has. Make no mistake, a Paul presidency would be disastrous.

    Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

    •  Pretty sure ... (0+ / 0-)

      .... you're the first one to mention "presidency" for Paul in this thread. ;)

      I think it's just a case of us being grouchy with our "own" party for always working within the Republican frames on the M-I complex, and for all his faults, at least Paul is making some degree of headlines for questioning it.

      Kucinich did as well, but since there's been no primary race for the Dems this year, that viewpoint has gone unheard.

      •  But the last thing we want (0+ / 0-)

        Is to be praising any Republican. Romney probably agrees with me more on NASA spending than many Democrats. Should I be praising Republicans every time they say something I agree with on NASA?

        It's true that the current administration has made some mistakes in the area of foreign policy. But he's still made some improvements for progressives (for example, cutting military spending for the first time in many years). Better to praise other Democrats for mentioning such issues in their campaigns than praising a Republican.

        Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.
