‘No! No More! Enough!’
From a set of comments I and a few others left in a post by Smitty over at The Other McCain…
Joan Of Argghh!:
Seen the latest gaffe by Jeb Bush? “There are people on the right who are fearful of federal encroachment. That fear, I don’t think is justified. . .”
If 2016 turns into Clinton/Bush Redux, I will seriously consider voting Libertarian.
I won’t need to consider it — it’ll be the default.
I will never vote for another Ideologue – and the Libertarian Party seems to always nominate that type of person.
Assuming there is a Presidential Election in 2016 or the 22nd Amendment is not repealed [neither scenario is as crazy as you may think: consider some of things that have happened since 20 January 2009], if all that is offered are candidates who are Ideologues, I will abstain. Ideology is destroying this country. I refuse to play by their rules any longer.
The rubber has really met the road this time. This is the moment for all good men to stand up, whatever the cost, and say: ‘No! No more! Enough!’
Out hope lies in the Several States. The national system is terminal – we must take the patient off of life support and move on.
The United States Of America is an idea that is not bound by the number of sovereign states that are members of it. That idea will endure no matter how it’s physicial manifestation is constituted.
Also, let me include a comment from Adobe Walls that is fitting to the subject here at hand:
Doug Altner nails it though I’d insert Republicans instead of Conservatives when he correctly states that the Nation’s downfall is caused by not fighting the last Progressive generations gains. “Reform” is a fools errand whether one is talking about the GOP or various bits and pieces of the federal government.
Let It Burn.
I second my Right Honorable Friend’s motion.
BTW: Do read Smitty’s post, as it quite well-reasoned [per usual].
