Over the holidays I discovered how to bring two different political ideologies together! The answer is simple......Gambling! Fantasy Leagues, Pick 'em Pools, Scratch Offs at the Bar, Casino's, Las Vegas, Poker (Mariah), NCAA Hoops Brackets, etc.
Last Night, as we gathered at the local drinkery to usher in the New Year.... Conservatives, Liberals, and Moderates alike put our money together and spent the night betting on scratch off games and making plans in regards to losing our money in Vegas. It made for a fun evening devoid of political squabbling, which had a very cathartic effect considering we were able to work as a team with the goal of stimulating the economy with our gaming losses!!
My humble opinion is that we are all a lot more moderate then we would like to admit.
All we have to do is have the Senate and Congress start a Fantasy League and distribute some Scratch Off cards. Having John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton hitting the slots would most certainly ensure more efficient leadership!!
