I’m not going to talk about liberals and conservatives, anymore.

March 1st, 2008

I think the labels are meaningless. 

I’m going to refer to people who prefer a government solution in a particular case as “statists” and people who prefer to keep the state out of a particular solution as “individualists.”

Now, cialis buy ampoule the same person can be one or the other depending on the issue.

For example, cialis usa I’m a statist when it comes to police and the judiciary, but an individualist when it comes to nearly everything else.

This isn’t just a gimmick. I think it will help me be more exact in my politics and keep me from overgeneralizing about people…in general.

Anyway, we’ll see how it goes.

    The problem is most folks don’t know or care about the degrees of difference between, say, liberal and leftist. There’s a big difference, IMO.

    I would prefer to be lableled as a capperist.

    I’d ask to be labeled a Burrist, but that might lump me in with Grandpa John and Grandpa Steve and Mr. Pterodactyl. I’d prefer capperism myself.

    If you agree with the right solution to an issue you are a pragmatist. If you are on the wrong side you are an ideologue.

    Labeling should be left to historians and philosophers.

    That is exactly what I would expect… Typical Burrist response.

    I got the most high tech Dymo label maker they build, and I know how to use it.

    Label #1: Capperism is dhimmitude.

    Label # 2: (ala Nikita Khrushchev) “We will Burri you!”

    What was the original post about again?

    Doesn’t matter. The comments have been more interesting anyway!
