It's funny, because, being a lawyer, and naturally assuming he's smarter than everyone else in the Universe, he ALWAYS has an answer to everything. Some weird rationale, some kind of spin on how it's really all for the best, how his taxes come back to him in some form or other.

It's amazing the kind of self-delusion people will put themselves through just to cling to an ideal or belief that they feel they MUST subscribe to...

Prime example. When i finally nailed him down and said "So it's your view that Socialism >>> Capitalism?" His response was:
