It’s the Great Libertarian Purge of 2008. Fortunately, there is no GULAG or kangaroo courts involved.
Although I keep hearing that the reeducation camps will be opening sometime around noon on January 20.
I dunno, man, that Palin chick seems pretty libertarian.
I can’t see any Alaskan politician as libertarian, since Alaska is pretty much a welfare state that forwards its Federal earmark and natural resource revenues to its citizens in yearly payouts. It takes more than gun ownership and a desire to be left alone after the government check clears to make a libertarian.
But she sure talks the talk, I’ll give her that.
Just a thought …
In Scotland, we have a concept called “Cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face !” – it describes a situation where someone does something counterproductive and potentially self-damaging to make a point …
So – for example, perhaps one considers someone who believes in all good faith that Presidential candidate M isn’t sufficiently Libertarian … and that someone decides to vote for a third person – B – who, while much more pure from a Libertarian standpoint, hasn’t a proverbial snowball’s chance in the Hot Place of winning the Presidency … even though, by not voting for candidate M, this makes it easier for candidate O – One who is 179.99999 degrees opposite to being Libertarian – to become President for the next 4 years …
The said someone’s Libertarian face remains pure – albeit looking *really* silly without a nose …
Will it *really* be worthwhile voting like that ?
Me – I refuse to give the O the satisfaction …
