Actually any patisan thinker is whats wrong with this country. Party line or no line right?
I doubt if people would take the time to examin all the views that they would honestly be able to agree with any party line.

I agree. When people blindly support any ideal without reservation, without concern of the outcome of that support it is dangerous. Everyone is somewhat partisan is some part of their life. To me anyone that is unwilling to examine the evidence, to look at all aspects of issues, causes, etc.. makes them a part of the problem. I don't expect people to be agree with everything in the people they vote for. At minimum they need to see the strengths and weakness and be as vocal in criticism as they are in support when needed. This is what makes for good government. It is a pretty simple concept but not many are interested in practicing it which is why we are always voting for the lesser of two evils and put up with the corruption that comes with it.

Partisan-A fervent, sometimes militant supporter or proponent of a party, cause, faction, person, or idea.

Welcome. I really want a grassroots movement of like minded moderates that want what is best for their country. People that are willing to intelligently argue the pros and cons of their beliefs. Take out all the emotion, spin, and just the facts about what works and what does not. Once they come up with a viable compromise in a platform they need to find the best candidate that will further their cause. This is the only way we will break out of this cycle of DC politics that is ruining our country. I think people would be surprised how people would flock to a movement like this because it will represent real change, not just empty promises.

Let's not try and pretend that anything Charles Barkley has to say is relevant. A role model he's not.

Try doing some original thinking, though it might be hard (maybe impossible).
and your state went blue, go buckeyes...

Barkley is actually a conservative and unlike most sports stars he's actually a very well read and thoughtful guy. He's more of a William F. Buckley type of conservative then the typical gay hating, dark skin fearing, mouth breathing conservative.

Remarkable specimen. She's entirely unaware of the raw sewage hate coming from her own mouth. It's everyone else. This is the world she made, and it's STILL everyone else's fault.

Reagan was a dumb actor. Naturally that doesn't count.
