Tabin nailed it. I sure can’t speak for other Libertarian types (I’m of the “small-L” variety), but opposing the hard-nose (religious) right finds me totally and absolutely divorced from the GOP — and No Way I’d ever cozy-up to the demented Democrats. Never! A few I knew and strongly backed some years ago in Alaska, when the Democrats were the fiscally conservative (Bill Sheffield, Hugh Malone, Oral Freeman and Steve Cowper among ‘em) and Republicans the big spenders — a juxtaposition of today’s realities maybe? Like Ted Stevens rivals Robert Byrd in pork, and I’m appalled at the massive change in Don Young. He once was a conservative, believe it or don’t.
No, the Morality Police scare the hell out of me about as much as the Pat Leahy-Teddy Kennedy-Nancy Pelosis, et al. They make my skin crawl with their sanctimonious and pious platitudes and condescension. Thus, exactly where the twain will meet, if at all — that’s a mighty big question!
Damned if I see any resolve, and I’m sure not going to again settle for the “Lesser-of-Evils” either. No way!
One additional point concerning our cojonesless president. My guess is that if he’d not weakened into a Politically Correct “containment” or no-win wrap-up of the mess in Iraq, we’d’ve been out of there already. How he could condone those so-called “insurgents” taking pot shots at our Marines from a mosque and doing Nothing is totally beyond my comprehension. Anyone with even the most marginal recollection of history would agree that the only thing the folks in the Middle East understand is strength. STRENGTH, got it? Dubya and his mickey-mouse McClellens in the Pentagon make me ashamed, and it appears that Dr. Rice has been sufficiently brainwashed by the State Department to have evolved into a terminal blah.
Again, if we’d’ve done this right, perhaps all I’d have to bitch about is Dubya’s exerting his hallow’d First Veto on stem-cells when it should’ve gone to the humongous spending/pork and growth of government, so much under the auspices of the Republicans.
Yeah, we of the semi-libertarian persuasion have “had it” with the wimpy and inept GOP as we have with the goofy, opportunistic Democrats.
Trent Lott or Chris Dodd? Pardon the vernacular, but they and their good buddies make me want to puke.p>Color me thoroughly pissed-off as I continue searching for the next Barry Goldwater. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
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?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
