Paultard?

Are we not all "Paultards"?

More seriously, buying into Fox News' simplistic narrative of Dem=free stuff and "sticking it to the rich" does not contribute to a grown up discussion of the current state of politics and how to advance the cause of liberty. Surely all those who desired to "stick it to the rich" did vote Obama, but they hardly constitute the majority of his support. Just the other night I hosted a get together with half a dozen friends, all of whom voted for Obama. But I was the only one there who didn't pay income taxes last year. They are not looking for free stuff, nor do they mind honest rich people. They are simply stuck in the two-party mind frame and judged (not without reason) that Obama was better than Romney for the country.
