Mr. Macomber’s upbeat account of individual resistance to government bureaucracy is nice. I’m glad the driver found a way to compete in a less-than-free market taxi network. Mr. Macomber’s conclusion that this type of action will prevent state secession, regardless of how unlikely secession now seems, is too quick of an answer. The division between conservatives and liberals is no longer an “argument,” as it may have been half a century ago. The divide is a chasm that cannot be bridged, will not be reconciled. It is a war and only one side can win. If you think otherwise, then wait until a liberal president joins the liberals in Congress and resumes the appointment of liberal judges. The three branches of government will be unstoppable when they find Mr. Driver, penalize his limo business with “green” taxes, send him into bankruptcy, and then offer to support him with government handouts.p>The threat to conservative survival has never been greater. So many of us now understand this threat that only the most radical solutions may be left to save our country. Secession is one solution, albeit a final act of desperation. The alternative to a legal separation from liberal tyranny (for those of us who will never surrender) is even more unthinkable, but not unheard of in this country. Don’t dismiss an unlikely solution or you may find the unthinkable to be the only choice that remains. br> — Tom Cook br> Raleigh, North Carolina /p> p> TIMES THAT TRY MENS’ SOULS br> Re: Lawrence Henry’s
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
