An old fashioned libertarian’s view on the world

I was going to write an entry here how my support for McCain wasn’t solidified. I still needed to find out more about Palin and I still had misgivings about McCain. Then I read Drudge. It wasn’t the stuff about Bristol Palin. That stuff happens and you deal with it. Still, liberals seemed almost pissed that Bristol didn’t abort the child, thereby making her first communion in the church of socialism/feminism. Even with all the spin and non-sense, I wished to hold off and learn more. Then I went to Drudge Report. Read it yourself. At this point I will not use the word democrat. That would tarnish the traditional meaning of the word. I won’t call them liberals, because I consider myself a classical liberal. I was going to use socialist-feminists, but that is too long. The new word shall be Neo-Coms. Well, the Neo-Coms have shot themselves in the foot with this one. Families should be off limits, but disseminating private, confidential information to the public is a safety concern as well as a privacy rights concern. There should be criminal prosecution of this breech. It doesn’t matter though. It served a purpose beyond the Neo-Coms control. It galvanized the republican party and conservatives with the McCain/Palin ticket in ways that no one on the right could do. This could cost Obama the presidency. It should. I am sure he will come out and condemn it, and I don’t place this situation at his feet, but he will be the one to pay for it. John and Sarah, you have one more vote come November and damn the Neo-Coms.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Jim Leach – The Strunza from Iowa

with 2 comments

Jim Leach, former republican representative from Iowa, endorsed Barack Obama for president. This turncoat, and he is, suggests that Obama is attractive because of a “ new era of non-ideological, bipartisan decision-making”. What this means is that rather than having a backbone, and values, he’d rather find new ways to make sure politicians like himself stay in power. Let me explain. If politicians “work together”, without ideology,  I can guarantee the only thing they will want to do is to get your vote by bribing you with your own money, or worse. Their perception is to get things done. Change. Give people what they want. The problem with that is it doesn’t matter what it is. Bipartisan means they don’t stand for anything. So out of one side of their mouth, they will tell you they are pro-life, but out of the other, they will fund abortion clinics. Guys like this just want to make double dealing more palatable. By having no moral compass, they can’t be pigeon holed and their appeal will be broader. Think of Bill Clinton. In the case of Leach, which is a fitting name, some say he is angling for the presidency of the University of Iowa. The democrats control the government in Iowa, so by endorsing Obama, he is doing them a great favor and possibly expects one in return. Leach was a RINO republican anyway (in reality, now he’s a democrat), and this isn’t much of a surprise. His reasoning shows lack of principles, loyalty and a lack of common sense. Democrats do not do favors for republicans in this state, or any other. He’s in for a big surprise if he doesn’t get it, and if the republicans have any principles, they will tell him to go to hell. Strunza is a perfect word for him. Look it up. And with that, I leave with a quote from Samuel Adams:

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
