Default Re: If Republicans soften the immigration message, is it over for Democrats?

If Republicans want to rebuild they need to be the party that is out of your pockets and out of your bedroom, especially out of the bedroom. For a party that doesn't believe in regulations it is interesting that they believe they can regulate America's culture.

As for taxation I don't see how that is stealing when people get back what they put in through; hard and soft infrastructure among other positive societal outcomes. I believe the government needs reforms in how they allocate funds going forward but the anti government sentiment and comparisons to communism/socialism is delusional.

Seriously if Obama is a socialist then what does it make the leaders of America's allies like Canada, UK, etc.????

cant agree more. the modern fox news "conservative" is not remotely conservative by the definition of the word.

Fantastic article on why modern Republicans are so adamantly and shamelessly anti-science and anti-intellectualism.

Quote:
Climate scientists came under attack not just because their research threatened the oil industry (although it certainly did that), but also because they had exposed significant market failures.

Pollution is a market failure because, in general, polluters do not pay a price for environmental damage (and this includes not just polluting industries, like electrical utilities, but also anyone who uses a product—like gasoline—that takes up a portion of the planetary sink without paying for it). Nicholas Stern, a former chief economist at the World Bank, has declared climate change "the greatest and widest-ranging market failure ever seen."

I'll never call myself a republican or a democrat again. Too much baggage.

That's one faction in the Republican party I wholeheartedly disagree with. The religious fanatics in the Republican party are really kind of absurd.

thats fine by me, wind and solar are both becoming more and more viable by the day. at this very moment, germany currently generates 25% of their power from renewables, and can reach 50% or more on sunny days.

50% of new generation built in the USA last year was renewable. the future is coming hawker

You clearly don't know the difference between tax breaks and subsidies. They receive tax breaks just like ALL industries do. There's even a manufacturing tax break I believe that people count as O&G and Apple and Microsoft use it as well. Are we really counting the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Bill as an O&G tax break? Really?

And wind energy can only compete because of enormous tax breaks. Without them, they wouldn't exist.

And the future is coming? Yeah, no shit. It's funny how you think I'm some blood for oil/gas dude totally against new technologies. Again in 2050, all energy will still be majority O&G. I work in O&G because whether you like it or not, people need it. And I like it.

Republican obstructionism approaches all-time nadir of ridiculousness: Senator Mitch McConnell filibustering his own bill.

They really are out of control.
