Actually, I haven't seen a genuine hippie in over thirty years.

The problem is that big wigs like Robert Thurman, Ph.D., and Tricycle magazine express a pervasive, leftist slant. I find this especially remarkable considering the Buddhist experience under Communist regimes over the past half century. Maybe it's also an aspect of professional academia.

It's good to know that there are such things as Republican Buddhists - at least they have been spotted in the wild.

Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.

: You got to stop hanging out with hippies. Many of my Buddhist friends are Republicans: small government, big tax cuts, etc.
