90% of the population does not want free markets anymore. 90% of the public believe in more government. How can we fight this? Is the idea of liberty and limited government really passe to 80%-90% of the country? How can you teach so many that its the free market and capitalism that makes things better not worse? What we have with Obama and McCain is Mortons Fork. Obama belives in libertarian paternalism – don’t ban stuff, just present choices which are easier, expect human laziness and inertia to nudge them to YOUR preferences. And tax is theft people. Whats the difference between a government official taking your money at the point of a gun or a criminal doing it.

Obamas audacity leads to a lack of respect for symbols and traditions people hold dear – he has no problems using and twisting these symbols to his own ends. The Seal, the Bible, Wright etc, all of these are tools he will use and discard in order for him to win. I bet he sheds his whole anti-war skin now, where will anti-war voters go? The Democrats attempt to bring back the fairness doctrine again – how long before the airwaves are forced to give equal time to unprofitable viewpoints. Plus, a short story premise – if it looks like Obama will win the election in November, will Bush let one through in October? And, you are free.

Obama creates a new Presidential seal by Photoshopping the existing one – too bad its illegal to do that, guess hes trying to get us used to seeing him behind a seal. Hes also got a 15 point bounce on McCain according to a Newsweek poll – and now hes accusing the GOP of racism before they even open their mouths – obviously the Obama brand is Audacity. McCain offers a $300M bounty for a new battery – great idea. George Carlin dies of heart failure in LA – there goes one of the great ones when it comes to pushing the boundaries of free speech – too bad we really arent any further ahead. And watch out – you may be on trial if you dont believe in global warming.

Obama opts out, gears up to spend so much money that his face will be more prevalent than that other guy who had the same last name as his middle name did in Iraq. Didn’t the Soviets love plastering their propaganda too? With any luck people will see past all of this and use their reason in order to select a candidate. Also, a great issue of Newsmax, which of late is leaning less neo-con and more true conservative. $850M in new spending – where will it come from? Soak the rich. Of course, the rich have the option to flee. The have ways of getting out of paying. We will not be so lucky.

The big story – Michelle Obama on the View – she can afford to be big towards Hillary since she lost. Obama forces Muslim women in headscarves out of the picture – so much for diversity – McCain says another good thing – lets build 45 nuclear reactors – the Dem response: no drilling, and nationalize the refineries. Welcome to Communist America. Marx, Stalin and Lenin must be laughing from their vantage point in hell, and Mises, Goldwater and Rand must be shaking their heads and muttering, they finally did it. And the tomato scare down to global warming – how far can they stretch the truth?

…by barring women in headscarves from a photo at an Obama event. What kind of diversity is allowed then, Senator? More proof that those who separate are actually more racist/sexist/intolerant that those who say we are all part of the human race. Like I said before, Obama wasted his opportunity to be beyond race, to be beyond all this. Proof again, that he isn’t.

Will Obama drop the mortgage tax deduction? I dont think he is interested in the American Dream of owning a house, I think hes more interested in the Old European Dream. The mainstream media is complaining that, even though Obama leads McCain in almost every poll, Obama didnt get the traditional bounce in the polls. Geez, the guy is leading already. The media feels a collective tingle up their leg. Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister says a few good things – one of which was reason over passion, and that the state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation.

Ron Paul said it himself – a write in vote for him would probably be lost and never counted. Looks like when it comes to the presidential race, voting for Bob Barr would be the best way to make a statement, since the presidential election is already lost. Can you imagine if the press sees a decent turnout for Barr. If all RP supporters threw their presidential vote to Barr, but still supported Ron Paul Republicans in Congress, I think that would give us the best bang for the buck. McCain says one right thing – lets go ahead and drill offshore already – other countries have been able to do it without being environmentally invasive, why cant we learn from them. And finally, Al Gore salutes Obama with a hearty Seig-Heil, as pictured above.

Did the Tim Russert death coverage go overboard? I finally see McCain in his preferred town hall setting, and guess what, he sucks there too. I dont think the Obama folks really have to worry about him in that context, I think he will smoke McCain there as well. Gay marriages begin in California, more power to them. Yes folks, even Rush Limbaugh is now thinking like me – that the Democrat/Republican cabal has simply agreed to give each other the presidency every 8 years. What other explanation is there for the selection of the poorest candidate ever for the GOP.

Yet another reason to write in Ron Paul or vote for Bob Barr, Ralph Nader, or your favorite 3rd party.
