Centrist leaning on the edge of libertarian. Thats about where I figured I would sit. I tend to be a peacemaker compromiser, so it fits. Although some things should never be compromised...NRA!!!!
I don't think I need to take a test or even say where in the world of politics I could be found for everyone here to have a good idea.GeneticsDave said::agree: Can I get an amen?!?

I would hope that the Utah Libertarian Party would refuse to let him run on their ticket. What a nightmare that would be for the Party and what bad press/PR to bring to the Libertarian cause.... sigh.Ty said:I may rethink my affiliation after hearing that super dell will be running for governor on the libertarian ticket :ack:
I agree with you. I think he's an idiot. I can't get around that, as hard as I try. First I hated his commercials - so thankful those aren't polluting the airwaves anymore. Secondly, I hated his products... I fixed too many overpriced, crummy quality Totally (not so) Awesome PCs and how he conned naive customers into buying his products. I don't agree with his behavior, but I respect his right to make decisions. I don't think my personal malevolence is due to any stunts he has pulled (speeding, paragliding), but rather to his behavior; e.g. the stupid comments he makes about people "being the devil" or "doing the work of the devil" or "being evil". I just don't think he knows enough about anything to make blanket statements like that. I think he not only misrepresents the the Church to which he belongs, but I also think he would misrepresent Libertarians - which he hopes to run on behalf of. I would urge all Libertarians to make your displeasures known to the Utah Libertarian Party and keep this "fool" out of office and out of the Party's leadership.Eukatae said:That parasailing incident sounds to me like it was a harmless bit of showing off but someone chose to be annoyed and made an issue of it.
These tales of his misadventure irritate me for three reasons and non have to do with his behavior. I find his antics characteristic of a fool and chuckle at them in bemusement.
What chafes me: the accuser, no matter how trite, flip, or callous they may be, is always given merit over the accused.
Mob mentality: Mr. Jones chooses to be annoyed or offended so I too feel justified in being annoyed or offended.
The biggest irritant of them all, the act of choosing to be annoyed or offended in the first place. It is my belief that people chose it but I don't understand why. I find myself much happier not being offended even when the given offense is intended as such. Perhaps people who choose this way, to be annoyed or offended, have little else to do with their time and must take their entertainments where they can.
