Let’s be honest–people who claim to agree with all of their party’s bumper stickers suffer from one of two problems: they are either pathological liars or brainwashed robots.
Since when did tax-fearing C.E.O.’s in Vegas have anything in common with god-fearing billy-bobs in Texas? Why do anti-war protesters have to agree with anti-life feminists? Why can’t I support stem cell research yet also be fiscally conservative? If I think gays should be allowed to get married, how does that translate into my wanting a flat tax rate? Do I have to hate guns and gun owners in order to sympathize with the homeless?
