Ron Paul’s Campaign For Liberty

I’m only gonna post the video for now. Longer post coming up, though. Not necessarily only about this but also about Bob Barr and why he needs to get your voice instead of John McCain. I’ve reached the conclusion that we can survive four years of Barack Obama. Coming up – end of June-ish. Needs some research to illustrate what I’m trying to say and I lack the time for that right now.

Apparently, he had some trouble deciding a while back.

Hillary: The Movie

Perfectly illustrates at least two things I can think of immediately.

  1. Why we should hope for Hillary to become the Democratic nominee. While the current situation is obviously very satisfying (both of the candidates attacking each other and offering plenty of ammunition for the general election) and Obama should be beatable as well (remember, he’s probably a closet Muslim terrorist! And he has a whacko priest!), Hillary is far easier. She’s done so much bad stuff and been involved in so many scandals – the Republican attack machinery is gonna have a field day. Which brings us to…
  2. The Republican attack machinery. It’s obviously still very neatly oiled. Well done on the guy crying and the guy mourning his father. It might take a little more and they’re gonna have to boil the main messages down to 30 second attack ads but obviously – as I’ve said in 1. – there’s plenty of material to use. Apart from the real juicy parts, i.e. the politics she stands for!

So yes, I am indeed confident that the next president of the United States may well be called John McCain – and libertarians won’t have to feel bad about voting for Bob Barr all that much…

Bob Barr It Is

Bob Barr for president…I guess?

Over at Reason, David Weigel says:

When former Rep. Bob Barr arrives in Kansas City on Saturday for the Heartland Libertarian Conference, organizers expect him to launch an exploratory committee for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination.

So, I guess I’ll have to throw my support behind this guy now that Ron Paul is out. Honestly though, I don’t know enough about him to make any kind of qualified statement. I promise, I’ll look into him though and I’m fairly confident that he’ll be to my liking – not necessarily set the same central topics I would but essentially agree with me 80-90% of the time. That’s good enough for me in today’s world of politics.
