I have no doubt any longer that too many democrats cannot make that distinction.
The culture wars PALE beside this difference.
I just listen to Howard Wolfson on FOX say that Barbara West's questions were TOTALLY out of line because progressive taxation has been around for a very long time.
That means he is either disingenuous or BLIND. I think he is blind.
Now with Obama's unguarded, genuine sincere belief's opened with both Joe the Plumber AND on the radio interview in 2001 we see that the democratic party at the national level wants something far different from the constitution of private property, and the American dream, either for us or for our children.
This party now believes that taking the fruit of ingenuity, labor and risk is more important than enhancing the opportunity for same ...the system which has gotten us to this point. They believe it is a ZERO sum game.
Others believe that those who can make the pie grow should be allowed to do so, otherwise, discouraged they will simply slink back, as the govt is clearly going to encourage them to do, and slack off in proportion to the confiscation of their effort, mind, and entrepreneurship.
