How are Republicans supporters of small government? During the last 6 years the republicans have vastly increased the size of government in the name of security, which is what the MA have done with the SHRA. So how are the MA "Republicans"?

The difference is that in the real world, we're fighting a war. We pretty much have to do that through the government, as that's one of their most basic jobs. When we go to war, they take care of it. Whether you or I agree with this war or not is an issue that I think is going to take us away from the purposes of this message board.

In the MU, the U.S. government has, in an enormous way, taken over a job that had previously been done pretty well by private citizens for over a decade past (MU time); all over an event that wasn't much out of the ordinary for them.

I shouldn't even get into stuff like this on comic book message boards. If people like Nitro or Spider-Man existed in the real world, heck yeah I'd want our government to know about them and to be able to keep them from blowing up a school or webbing me to a lamp-post.

In the M.U. however, private citizens have been saving the Earth for years successfully, and the U.S. Governent that has siezed control over these citizens has been manipulated and corrupted more times than any human can count.

There are people on these boards who are far more elequent than I who can explain why the encroachment of "realism" severely damages the world these super-heroes live in. It doesn't make sense to try to apply a lot of our rules to these stories.

I guess I just get my hackles raised when I see the "bad guys" automatically labeled Republican or Right Wing, and when Republicans are labeled as rich or weak minded. I'd like to think I'm a far cry from one, and my job as a music teacher keeps me from being the other.
