    GreggW is correct, that’s how we got Obama. Seriously the only difference between the major parties, is which end of the Bill of Rights they want to put in the shredder first. If you MUST vote for a major party candidate, do it on a party line that cross endorsed your candidate, send ’em a wake up call.

    Ridiculous today. I’m disappointed.

    “If you’ve got a business…you didn’t build that.” That’s what he said, and that’s what he meant. To Leftist Obama, self-reliance and individual accomplishment are just conservative fantasies, not a part of America’s history and character. The context of the quote is not just that speech but Obama’s entire career.

    No, we got O’Bama because McCain was too big a pussy to force a no-torture mandate onto the platform, and wouldn’t stand up to the idiots who foisted Palin upon him. (Who’s brilliant idea was it that a first-term, politically inept governor of one the smallest and most isolated states would make a good VP candidate?)

    I completely and utterly agree with your sentiments regarding the Constitution. I refuse to vote for any Republocrats this year, I urge everyone to find a principled 3rd party candidate and vote for them instead.

    Night-Gaunt telling me what I should know? I smile. But your question is honest and deserves some answer.

    In a college class I once made some comment about personal independence. To my amazement, the prof argued with me long and hard, essentially saying that if I didn’t make my own shoes I could not be independent. I was so astonished by this complete misunderstanding of what should be a fundamental virtue of every able adult that I had no answer for him, leaving his little diatribe to poison the ears of the class.

    That was my first encounter with the idea that nobody is really ever independent. For collectivists of every stripe, the person of integrity, self-reliance, self-motivation, self-responsibility, is an affront, and his existence is to be demeaned or denied.

    One thing that is nearly impossible for Leftists to understand is that personal independence does not negate mutual trade or personal relations. The idea that only Robinson Crusoe could be independent (and that only until Friday showed up) is just one of countless Leftist fantasies.

    And while I’m on the subject, another collectivist fantasy is the perpetual idea that without government there would be no [fill in the blank]. A Soviet would say cars, many Europeans would say phones, Obama says roads and bridges, most Americans would say education (proving how bad that education is), too many people say health care — but it is all the same thinking: that fundamentally the only source of good things is government or at least collective action.

    Since I’m not paid for this, I won’t go into exactly what it is that government SHOULD do except to say its very few functions are vital and actually allow the kind of independence I am talking about. But I don’t expect a dedicated collectivist to agree.

    According to Republican/Objectivist theology, individuals succeed despite the obstacles government puts in their way. I keep waiting for the supporting documentary on the wildly successful Somali entrepeneurs, who have no government to get in their way…
