Re: Gush vs. Bore = Pepsi vs. Coke
This is not a new idea -- I've heard GW and AG referred to as Tweedledee and
Tweedledum for months.
But voting for one of them does NOT mean one is happy with the status quo.
Even so, I believe there's a spectrum of opinions among the status quo -
i.e., take 1000 people from a randum sampling of a so-called status quo
group, and take 1000 Libertarians ... which group is going to look more
"status-quo-ish?" Which group will have more conformists (within each
individual group)? I believe there are Libertarian drones, as well as
status quo drones. And I don't mean to drone on, but a drone is a drone is
a drone. Obviously, this is not a scientific poll - only my naive,
speculative, rambling diatribe.
