    Republicans. Or, rather, people with a Republican essence. To clarify, in general, Republicans have a 'Republican political essence', Democrats have a 'Democratic political essence'... but not always. A person's 'political essence' is more an inner, psychological quality or character essence than it is actual party affiliation.

    Are we to take from your original statement then that you believe that people with a Republican political essence are susceptible to misinformation and bullshit tactics to a degree that people with a Democratic political essence are not?

    Are illegal drug dealing and pimping part of the private sector? (You appear to be responding to my comment about Ron Paul wanting to legalize illegal drugs and prostitution. Looks like you've gone off course.)

    False.

    Okay.

    yes, they are part of the private sector in the negative way that they are precisely because they are illegal. the drug trade is profitable because the illegality of drugs makes them profitable. I once bought a large quantity of K2 from a flower shop when it was legal (knowing a city ordinance was soon going to outlaw it) and sold it once it became illegal for 4X the price. on a larger scale however, this leads to violence and other sorts of more severe unlawful activities that go unnoticed or put on the back burner. for historical reference, let's take the alchohol prohibition era, it led to nothing but insane amounts of crime and violence.
    in an area where pimping was legal, you would see less traditional pimp/ho relationships and more brothels with voluntary employment and healthy insurance.


    o.O I do not operate under "always" assumptions.
    False.
    since my original hypothesis that you believed these things as absolutes is apparently wrong, would you say you believe them most of the time as opposed to absolutely?
