I neglected to mention in my previous comment that I applaud Aaron Lake Smith for his balanced and fair interview. It is quite clear that you did your research, and the questions you selected to post were straightforward and did not come across as antagonistic. It seems today that many journalists, no matter what end of the political spectrum they reside in, feel it necessary to badger, bully, and manipulate people who disagree with them. It is refreshing to find someone who can still express journalistic integrity. Thank you, sir.
@Mick - Can you point out where in the interview Mitchell said the unemployed are lazy? I'm having trouble finding it. I did see where he thought it wasn't a good idea to incentivize people to remain unemployed.
Can you also explain why you felt it necessary to link his name change to Nazism?
Can you tell me when he said the homeless weren't poor? Because what I understood him to be saying is that the American (or at least North Carolinan) definition of poverty is vastly different from the poverty he observed in third world countries. When I read his statements, the conclusion I drew was that he wanted to make sure people didn't equate the two.
Would you also be kind enough to show where he discussed "trickle down" economics? All I saw was his stance that loosening the restrictive regulations on business by the government will enable businesses to hire more employees.
I would like to point out that giving people more choices, such as the choice to apply for and obtain a concealed carry permit, is by definition "expanding freedoms". It is simply your opinion that that is one freedom that should not be expanded on. I personally believe the right to murder an unborn child is a freedom that should not be expanded on.
I am a proud supporter of Mr. Mitchell. I have been a fan of his for several years now. While I do not agree with all of his opinions, I greatly respect his boldness to share them, the fact that he is resolute and does not change his character simply to fit in with whatever crowd he is addressing, and I believe he will make an outstanding contribution to the political arena.
