No, you think of "me" rather than "we".


That would be "I" not "me" though, right?


There is no "I" in "me".
Who?

I bet you almost believed you were posting here of your own free will. You're too smart to fall for that though.

I'm dubious. Can you cite the name and publisher of the book you used?

Well, as long as you're keeping an open mind.

As opposed to stealth oligarchy or stealth theocracy. Of course.

I think it is fair to say that liberals tend to look to the government for solutions in more scenarios than do conservatives. I think that the perception that liberals just love big government is a deliberate misinterpretation meant to impugn. I could just as easily assert that all conservatives just love big military and big religion; but I don't believe that's true.

Sadly, much of the political discourse in the current climate is bereft of nuance.
