Question of the Day (Again)

If "separation of church and state" means that religious beliefs can't influence any government policies, can we start applying it to liberalism? Their entire philosophy is based on faith, after all.

Question of the Day

I've been mulling over something in the wake of Tuesday's events, and I thought I'd put it out there. This obviously doesn't apply everywhere, because the country is pretty big and diverse (I'm looking at you, Delaware and Massachusetts), but in general, I've noticed something about elections:

When conservative candidates pretend not to be conservative, they lose. When liberal candidates pretend not to be liberal, they win.

I'm pretty sure I already know the answer, but why do you think this is?

Have I Mentioned That I Don't Age?

So, I voted today. Go me.

The reason that's related to the post title is that I had a fun exchange when I checked in. While I was getting the form to sign, one of the women at the desk half-jokingly asked if I was old enough to vote, saying I looked like I "could be in high school" or something. The look of utter disbelief she gave me when I said "I'm 25" was quite entertaining.

Incidentally, I cast a vote for Anthony Zanowic even though he had no chance of winning, since I agree with about 98% of his positions, which is incredibly rare. Living in a district where 75% of the population will just vote for anyone with a Hispanic surname and/or a (D) gives you the freedom to vote your conscience, after all.

I'm more excited that Allen West looks poised to take a House seat for Florida. This man will be president someday. Seriously. Read up on him and watch some of his speeches on YouTube if you're not convinced. Dude is a badass with true conservative cred.

I've actually been thinking about a dream team for a future White House. What do you think of my lineup so far?

- President Allen West
- Vice President Paul Ryan
- Attorney General Chris Christie
- Secretary of State John Bolton
- Secretary of the Treasury Thomas Sowell
- Press Secretary Sarah Palin

A man can dream, right?
