a libertarian threat to bush?
well, the libertarians obviously think so. me, i'm not so sure.

i am actually more libertarian than republican (where libertarian is defined as "a republican without the morals"), and before the primaries i was thinking of voting libertarian. but then the dems put kerry up for their nominee, and i am now a solid bush voter. the chances of a libertarian actually winning the election are nonexistant, but a libertarin showing well would be an interesting statement.

but to me, and i think to alot of folks on the right, keeping kerry out of office is more important than making that statement. four more years of bush is preferable by far than suffering under kerry to people that would be potential libertarian voters. the chief reason for someone switching parties would be fiscal and social domestic issues, but the wot trumps all those, and besides, if the most liberal senator ever is allowed in office he would be far worse than bush.

i'm pretty sure that anyone politically astute enough to recognize the term "libertarian" would also know enough to know what is at stake, what kerry is like and how close the election will be. those things combined should be enough to keep the right in line.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
