OK, I just found a Republican who rides a bike for practical purposes.
"Rara avis" indeed, but well he's bruised but alive to tell his

Accident statistics on bicycling are horrific per mile traveled. In my
case, I achieved a lifetime of about 15,000 miles before a serious
acccident.

Sorry, but bicycling is not the answer, or even part of the answer.

See, you just seem to deny my theory that Republicans don't care
enough about anything to ride a bike for practical purposes. But since
you say biking is so dangerous, and neither the Republican Party nor
the Democratic Party is the solution, who's the solution?

Either God or the Revolution, right?

The ape and the hyena disagree in the perspective of the jungle. Of
course, hyenas are predators without a creative mind. Probably the
same difference as bicyclists and nonbicyclists.

I don't see his endorsement would be bad for cycling since most
Republicans don't commute by bicycle anyway.

It would certainly lead to more ridership among the young and
minorities --his power base.

Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to

I've met a number of folks with Republican leanings here in
r.b.m. I think they're mostly nice people, and I'm mostly an
apolitical, irreligious libertine. In fact, I think most people,
whether with Republican or Democrat, or Conservative or Liberal
leanings are roughly "centerists" with overlapping viewpoints,
maybe with some few contentious outlier opinions on certain
topics that haven't yet led to The End Of Days.

Republicans are not the enemy. Self-purported, self-styled
"revolutionaries" who want to upset the applecart are.
Of whom does that description remind you?

But since
you say biking is so dangerous, and neither the Republican Party nor
the Democratic Party is the solution, who's the solution?


Solution to /what/ -- your disinformation about the supposed
"dangerousness" of cycling? The solution to that is
pretty obvious, but you're still here.

That's why we have to keep the old away from political life. They have
nothing to offer the world but hate. And you don't even ride a bike,
so enjoy your wheelchair! ;)

OK, he fell down himself, but I've felt intimidated enough to make me
lose my balance. Republicans just ignore how bad our roads are since
they mostly drive SUVs, and then try to make Iraq safe.

Of course, the Democrats also ignore the issue if only they talk about
some of the problems here...

Let's see Red is SUV town, hostile to bikes; Blue, friendly to public
transportation and bicycles. But the Democratic Party Machine doesn't
deliver the goods either.

Are all the Democratic party officials driving SUVs?

You fall under the revolution parameters. Neither party will solve the
problem. I think the revolution needs to be left libertarian.

Left libertarians see the need for COOPERATION, and traffic takes a
lot of it. Not too anarchist though as we need the government to set
up cameras to root out the bad drivers, but not to control speed.

Actually I believe in an American autobahn, while having BIKE LANES at
the same time. Is that a contradiction?

Well, it happens in Germany.
