I am a libertarian and I often vote Libertarian (hope you know the critical difference).
In both 08 and 12, I voted for Ron Paul and I'm so glad I did. Some see this as futile, a "wasted" vote, but I see it as only voting for someone I really agree with, not picking the slightly lesser of the evils.
Aug 13th 2010 4:34PM Doesn't surprise me, I went to the quality university in Alabama, Auburn University. That school in Tuscaloosa is known locally as nothing but a party school!

May 10th 2010 9:26PM Interesting pick. Did you see the photos? Looks like photos of Clinton and Monica; adoration in spades! While I think she's far too liberal (kinda like her bud, Larry Tribe at HLS) this notion that she's a "consensus builder" could backfire on The Anointed One. To be a consensus builder, you've got to be something of a listener; and if she actually listens, she might be as much of a surprise as Kennedy was.

Oct 6th 2009 11:52AM This reminds me of the mid-70's when I was a scientist in the pharmaceutical industry and the FDA was conducting the "OTC Review" to determine the efficacy of all OTC medicines. The the indivduals (mostly professors)appointed to "expert" panels were not allowed ever to have consulted with any company in the industry. Well, obviously, this excluded every academic who knew anything at all about the subject matter. I can assure you that you don't gain expertise in a practical subject if you have never worked with that subject. We handled the problem by teaching these "illustrious" professors (who were not unintelligent, just inexperienced)like babys; it took years. As a matter of fact, the OTC review is still not complete.

Aug 11th 2009 8:33PM If Republicans would just stick to the simple Ayn Randian notion that
"Government's job under capitalism is singular but crucial: To protect individual rights from violation by force or fraud"
surely everything else is trivial!
Jun 25th 2009 10:12AM Well, I don't recommend my favorite to anyone; as they used to say, degustibus nondisputandum est, but here's what I drink, and have done for about 20 years -
Take two heaping teaspoons of any instant coffee, triturate with two teaspoons of honey in a 12 oz tumbler, Q.S. with 2% milk, and microwave for about 2 minutes.
Sep 25th 2008 12:36PM This is the single biggest socialist initiative since FDR!!! It will change the American economy forever. This initiative effectively puts the government in the position of running a business; what an absurdity!!
Stupid people made stupid loans to other stupid people. Why should I save them? Why should I let the government put a gun to my head and force me to save them. Talk about redistribution of wealth!!
Feb 4th 2008 8:25PM Why do people talk about "reaching across party lines"? It is insane to compromise with the socialists (Democrats, in the U.S.). You give them an inch and they take a mile. Lets get back to pure principles of individual (not group) freedom and personal responsibility. This is what made America great!
Dec 12th 2007 4:47PM Out here in the mountainous forrest (near Lake Tahoe) there is neither cell nor cable service. Land line is clear but too slow for internet and I have (very expensive) satellite service for TV and cell which is not that great. But, with careful selection of providers, the land line is cheap, about $30/mo. for full service; so I'll keep it as long as I can. I use cell when travelling.
