It’s always a good day when there’s an online article from Shawn Macomber. Today’s was excellent.
This part bears repeating: “[That] is the core problem we face right now vis-à-vis civil liberties in America. Only half the population is ever interested in protecting our rights at a given time.”
I came to realize years ago that there are no longer any liberals. Except for the odd Nat Hentoff or two, they are now left-wing fascists. On top of that realization came another disappointment. The conservatives who were trying to defend civil liberties against the onslaught of the Clintons all of a sudden changed their tune when Bush came to office.
In elections, I never vote Democrat, even if they run a good individual candidate here and there. The individuals don’t matter in that organization — they are all just cogs in the hate machine. But I’ve also drawn the line at voting for Republicans who failed to do their part to bring the Clintons to justice. And that means I don’t vote for Bush. The same character flaws that led Bush and other Republicans to say “I’m glad it’s over” when it wasn’t over with the Clintons, also lead to things like Shawn Macomber experienced in New York.p>I don’t know about Mr. Macomber, but I’m going to vote for whatever buffoon the Libertarians are putting on the ballot this year. (And I’m definitely not a libertarian, either.) br> — John Gorentz br> Battle Creek, Michigan /p>

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
