  •  You're making the common centrist mistake of (9+ / 0-)

    of false equivalency.  Just because someone presents "evidence" of something and is adamant in their belief that their team is correct, in no way shape or form does that help their argument.  Basically you're saying because you don't know enough about evidence to read it correctly you cannot at least make a decision about who is closer to the truth.  They can believe in what they believe all they want to.  I'm sure they put on nice business suits and meet at convention halls.  That sort of atmosphere must appeal to you.  That doesn't make them right.

    It ALSO doesn't make them not hypocrites.  You have plenty of Republicans in HIGHLY conservative districts who love the Army, subsidized corporate, and federal tax dollars to boost rural areas that would otherwise have nothing to offer and would be relegated to capitalist hell.  That's what he means.  Their actions betray what they really believe.

    "Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal."
