Just another Joe
Since Jan 24, 2001
..Hello all, I'm a male in his sixties, married, two children, two grandchildren.
..I am now an ex-pat living on the island of Palawan in the Philippines.
..I don't subscribe to any particular political party, I vote my conscience and decide on a candidate based on their individual character and whether I think they would represent my thoughts when doing their job.
..I don't really have any pet peeves except child abusers/molesters. Don't get me started about these people because I will tell you right now that death is too good for them.
..I do believe in the 2nd Amendment and am all for CCW laws. An armed society is a polite society.
..Please don't be afraid to tell me what you think, I'm a big boy and can handle it. I don't have a lot of time to research things but I have some common sense and,at least I think, a few brain cells left.
..I USED TO SMOKE AND I VOTE! POLITICIANS, DON'T FORGET IT!
.Professor Joseph Olson of Hemline University School of Law, St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the 2008 Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29
Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million Republicans: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: In aggregate, the map of the territory Republicans won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare...
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the complacency and apathy phase of Professor Tylers definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nations population already having reached the governmental dependency phase.
