    How about a seperate discussion blog thread on the political ramifications of AWG? I’d certainly like to debate/discuss the concept of who’s pockets the money comes from and goes to with regard to AWG dollars!

    The reason I ask for debate is, it seems that every single “solution” to the AWG “crisis” involves taking money from MY pocket and putting it in OTHERS pockets!

    Can we be so blind as to just disregard the blatant and obvious political and financial incentives that revolve around AWG? Even if you completely buy in to the “science” of AWG, you cannot disregard that significant incentives are built in that further the wealth redistribution, anti-corporate, anti-capitalism causes.

    My personal skepticism is not only fueled by the myopic examination of “facts’ by AWG true believers, but by their inability to admit that politics and economics are a big part of what their goals are.

    Satisfy these skepticisms and perhaps there will be more that will agree to AWG as a prime mover, perhaps even me.
