Do you know what a a fake republican is? Its someone
who ignores things like civil liberties and votes
against gay marriage and bans abortion. Thats a fake
republican. A true republican believes in the freedom
of speech and the individual rights over the groups.
Nope, that's a libertarian. When you divide libertarian positions up, some go left (abortion rights, drug legalization, gay rights, etc.) and some go right (gun freedoms, anti-taxation, anti-regulation, etc.). True libertarians don't fit easily into a two-party system like the U.S.'s.
No I don't feel foolish. Marriage is for people that want to reprodures the speices. Abortion is murder, anyway you cut it, I can see it if its for the life of the mother, or a rape victum. But getting pregnant is so easy to control nowdays. I believe freedom of speech is good, except where someone is trying to do harm to some one else. Like a lying politicaion we see every day, think fool before you jump off a bridge, then hold your nose before you hit the water. (Golden Gate Bridge maybe)
First off, I am not taking sides here, but I do want to share something.
Earlier this month, two days before publishing my story , I spent bout eight hours reading random threads on the board here.
One particular comment stayed with me, and I bookmarked it, because it was so deceptively simple, yet utterly brilliant.
Now, I don't know anything about TheTimucan, but I am quite certain he is an excellent writer - perhaps even better than I am.
This is what TheTimucan wrote:
[i]"Funny, I was thinking about how Hemingway used commas like they were rare diamonds. The famous editor Max Perkins was reputedly a bad speller. Check out Hemingway’s work. You will almost never see a comma behind an introductory clause, and the few you find were probably put there by an editor, not him. Commas, in my opinion, are often optional, but not always, as a missing comma can change the meaning of a sentence completely. Good luck trying to tell an editor that commas are often optional though.[u] [b]I sometimes leave a comma or two out of dialogue if I want to give the reader the feeling the speaker is talking fast[/b][/u]. Editors always put the commas in anyway. "[/i]
