1: A groupie
of the two main political dinosaurs of the United States.
2: An air-headed
baby-boomer, probably fried
from a few too many
joints and stamps back in the sixties. Not sure what they believe
in, just as long as it involves
raising taxes on "The Man," and pumping up their own social
3: An opinionated, intelligent academic who is so intelligent, benevolent
, and sheltered that
they can't conceive
of the existence of people
who are not intelligent and benevolent
, and thus espouses
all sorts of wonderful ideas that
are totally contingent upon everyone telling the truth and not being greedy bastards.
4: An ignorant
kid (age 16-30), if college age, probably a political science or social
studies major, who hasn't the slightest idea how stuff actually works, and thinks that
wishing real hard is a viable way of getting things
who thinks that
a government is a benevolent
will ensure you get what you need, often under the misguided impression that
the same people
who run the organizational
abortions often referred to as the DMV, FEMA, and the IRS can somehow put together an efficient, low-cost, effective
healthcare system. Thinks that
taking 50 cents of every already weak dollar you earn is the best
way to do this.
who believes that
CEOs, COOs, and CFOs are kind-hearted patricians
who, upon noting
a tax increase on their corporation, will dutifully reduce
their own salaries and bonus
packages so as to prevent their workers, or god forbid, the consumers from paying those corporate taxes by proxy.
who hate the Republican party for all the wrong reasons. Don't even
get me started on the freaking Republicans.
