Is it just me or do these message boards contain a disproportionately high number of right wingers and libertarians? (judging by past discussions, too.
I believe that if you looked at the demographics of the posters here you find that the majority are white males, 18-35. That tends to be where the 'right-wing' are in the majority.
When I was in college I tended to lean left of center. Now I have a family and all the expenses that go along with it. When I look at my paycheck each week I think to myself, if the government has a surplus, (which means it took in too much money) why should they be allowed to keep it? What would stop them from taking even more to get a larger surplus? So now I'm right of center because I'm paying the bills and trying to save a little at the same time. Not because I want to see people starve or not get medical care, because I work really hard in a very demanding business and feel that I should hold onto as much of the money as possible.
