When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.
— Johnathan Swift
I don’t know about genius; I do know that George W. Bush cannot be both the complete and utter buffoon that the left believes him to be, while also being that criminal mastermind puppeteer controlling a massive worldwide conspiracy that the left simultaneously believes him to be. I do know that the basic premise holds; when all of the anti-Americans are in confederacy against a candidate, then that is a sure sign that he is a fine American. ANSWER, the Wobblies, the Bucannanites, the Klan, the Hippies, the NAACP, the Anarchists, the Communists, the Socialists, the Islamists and the French are all against him. They can’t all be right.
I’ve had influences. There are a lot of people thinking the same way that I was thinking, like recently, I have always been a big L libertarian. I’m not anymore, because this election is too important for pompous partisanship.. First, the disclosures. I have never voted for a Republican. I did vote for a Democrat (Laura Miller for mayor) with the sly plan of putting in a mayor who could get absolutely nothing done. I learned my lesson. Other than that, I have always voted Libertarian, or not at all. Until
I don’t say that with the normal “partisanship BAD” idiocy you hear from politicians. Partisanship is good. When you join a party, you should toe the party line. When you don’t agree with the party, you try to change the party, not just stab your allies in the back. R.L. Heinlein makes an excellent argument for partisanship in Take Back Your Government and I agree with it. When your differences with your party are so divisive, so fundamental that you can no longer toe the party line, then it is time to break off and move on. That is what I did.
For this election, I am a single issue voter. It’s the War, Stupid. This is a war for the survival of who we are. This is a war of survival on all levels. It is a war for my individual survival, and yours. It is a war for the survival of freedom. It is a war for the survival of the free market. It is a war for the survival of social liberty. If we are to keep doing the things that made us free and wealthy and healthy and American, we must fight and we must win this war.
