“…not voting for Romney is a vote for Obama. It’s that simple…” Kurt Schlichter would have us believe that Mitt Romney, while not a perfect candidate, would stop our inevitable slide into collectivism and destruction. He could be right — the current administration certainly has no respect for rule of law, personal rights or initiative, lifestyle choice (other than abortion) or personal property. Romney, we are told, will protect those things. He tells us, “When freedom becomes inconvenient, Democrats drop it like it’s hot.”
He’s right. Here’s the problem with his argument: the Republicans, who brought us the drug and terror war, and who seem poised to continue trying to coerce the Middle East into modernity through perpetual conflict, are no better. A Republican co-wrote the First Amendment assaulting
Incumbent Protection Campaign Finance Reform Act, as well as the onerous indefinite detention clause of the NDAA. They support the efforts to destroy internet commerce and fair use of digital products pushed by the MPAA and RIAA. They love throwing folks in jail for smoking a joint — it keeps the money flowing with the military-law enforcement-industrial complex.
He does have a good point, however, when he says “There are exactly zero “libertarian-liberals.” Nor can there be; Democrats embrace everything libertarians oppose.” But like all conservatives and Democrats he misuses the “liberal” label — Democrats are not liberals…they are Progressives. And so are the Republican leadership. They are a group of “elites” — educated experts who know better than you how you should live your lives, and who expect obedience and great wodges of your money in taxes and government fees so they can live very very well.
So let me respond to this useful idiot for the GOP aristocracy and speak to the disaffected Ron Paul voters: Do not vote for the lesser of two evils. “Waste” your vote on Governor Johnson. If enough of us do it, what could happen? (The worst thing for the Progressives of the Democrat and Republican parties…he could win.)
Perhaps this hyperventilating sycophant is right: if Obama wins, we will have chaos in the streets. Obama will try to rule, rather than reign, and try to install himself as president-for-life with all the attendent terrors. If this happens, 1) we will deserve it for having a majority vote for the man, and more importantly 2) the establishment has failed to correct guess why people are arming themselves to the teeth: they haven’t been pushed far enough yet, but if the aristocrats in DC push much farther they will find themselves with open rebellion.
