Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iran, ISIS... Nope 1.3 trillion dollar stimulus that did't stimulate... Nope NSA Programs were left in place... Nope ObamaCare responsible for skyrocketing health premiums... Nope Resurgence of Russian power in the world... Nope Executive amnesty and border crisis... Nope Inflaming rather than healing race relations... Nope Economic stagnation caused by regulatory policy... Nope American influence in the world at absolute low... Nope

His problem is that he is wrong. He has been very effective to implement his policies, they just don't work.

[Serious] Why do conservatives in America seem more willing to trust corporations rather than the government? submitted by andosan to politics

mhaines4102 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago

What great answers! My turn. I can sue corporations, I can't sue government. I can stop buying corporate products, I cannot get government off my back. People behind corporations find ways to serve me and interest me into paying them for what I want; the people behind the government find ways to force me to serve them and take my money for what they want.
Corporations are motivated by profit, government is motivated by power. Corporations use marketing to sway me, governments use guns. Throughout human history, governments have taken nearly unlimited power and will do so again. No corporation has ever murdered 45 million people to implement socialism. Corporations have never committed genocide. Corporations have never taxed people into poverty. No death penalty, prisons, IRS, immanent domain, or search and seizure. The only people who trust government are either naive or in charge.

I love this exchange by Ted Cruz. The problem with debates like this is that they are not policy debates. We don't learn anything significant about the candidates. We troll instead for soundbites and points of division, not distinction.

This is a sad article. I would have thought that at some point she would have just been called a racist.

Atheism Offers No Hope, No Future, Only Despair And Annihilation: A Response submitted by vjack to atheism

I would say that there is no corner market on insane people. I cannot speak to other theistic views, but devout Christians are not miserable. Often people believe that if they were to limit their freedoms it would make them miserable, then they look out at someone who has limited their freedoms and say, "they must be miserable." That is not true.

Many people are unhappy. Pick a worldview and you will find within it there are many miserable people. People are broken and hurting and casting about at an answer. Some land on religion, some land on irreligion. Without regard to how you slice it, every person is desiring to find substance, meaning and purpose in life, cosmic or otherwise. Perhaps that is found in the eyes of your partner, the fulfillment of the crowd or the approval of a mentor. Everyone wants and needs meaning. Viktor Frankl said, “Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.” We are all looking for a WHY...

We all limit our freedoms for that purpose. Athletes have crazy diets and workout schedules. Academics sacrifice nights and relationships for study. Businessmen often find themselves isolated and pressed on every side. We all set aside some things for other things; things of significance. That does not make you miserable. Miserable comes from sacrificing out of duty or enslavement, but not sacrifice out of freedom. Love begs sacrifice from freedom.
