    Now this is some scary stuff.



    Not sure what the 2010 election accomplished...but I do think this: Another cycle with the D's in charge might just push us over the edge. I doubt that we can recover our economic freedoms with another cycle of leaders who pander to folks that actually desire the government, rather than individuals, be in charge of our economic decisions.

    Yikes!

    I don't want the government to be in complete control of the economy, only parts of it.

    That's the cradle to grave free ride take care of me til I die entitlement wing of the democrat party.

    I predict it will soon be a majority.

    Cowards, all. Too afraid of life to really live.

    It's inevitable, that eventually the people will demand absolute security from the state....and absolute security is absolute slavery.

    Not that your post has anything to do with the OP, but I'll humor you:

    Your post would make sense on three counts...

    1. Government sector jobs (overwhelmingly D) make more than their private counterparts.
    2. Ridiculously inflated union wages (the same union wages that have wrecked Detroit and two of the Big Three);
    3. R's have to take more time away for family issues. I would contend that statistically that's less of an issue for D's.
