    I made it up. I agree that such a view might not get past the base, and "out of the GOP primaries"... they're not good at understaning nuance. At all. And that's another problem.

    However, I think a charasmatic individual could arise who could deliver such a message, and maybe make it fly. He'd have to have a moment of shining glory that'd give him some armour against attacks - maybe a war hero or a true rags-to-riches story, or just such a compelling speaker people want to hear him talk, and will give him a bit more space... they sort-of had this with Reagan. Say what you wil about him, but in his prime the guy sure could deliver a speech.

    Freedom isn't free. So quit whining and pay your taxes.
