REP - someone who wants to improve their own lot (at expense of the world), or maintain their comfortable, unsustainable status quo;

DEM - someone who wants to improve the world.

Seems to apply equally to FOSS workers vs capitalistas (M$, SCO).

Sick of stupid, bloodthirsty, self-interested, warmongering fools.

Tired of seeing comments such as "liberals are Utopians", "liberals are living in the past". Liberal is a word now as meaningless as "terrorist"; both are used to mean shades of "someone who disagrees with [my conservative views]".

I am not afraid to inhabit the world and history both. The REPs can have their cesspit Post History, New World. They created the ugliness. They can live in it, or let the humanists fix it (as always).

And this is disgusting (State Dept roundly and hypocritically insults Castro and all Cubans). From what I hear of the two countries, for the non-rich, life in Cuba is often more comfortable than life in the US. But the US govt would never let the facts get in the way of a good opportunity for some astonishingly brazen propaganda, even by their standards. I suppose the imbeciles in public office think ignorance will always be the controlling force in America; I hope, for humanity's sake, they are not correct. Please vote.
