So just who are you people and why do you think the way you do?

Whew! This is my first winter with you guys and the heat from Global Animosity is keeping the US snow free far too long!

So lets see if we can find some Common Ground and discuss our most basic common denominator (besides sexuality). The pursuit of money and wealth. Politics to me is about survival in modern civilization. None of us wants to pursue our particular happinesses in a governed land where they are banned or tutted. Our politics are defined by our goals within society as much as our sense of justice. And our pursuit of these goals should be tempered by the rule of minimizing negative impact, which maximizes the positive ones. 

So who are you and how are you doing?
