I NEED A MOTTO
People keep asking me why I haven’t written about Mark Foley, but what is there to say? He’s just another deranged idiot Congressman, and there are plenty of those in both parties. Foley’s behavior does not prove that the GOP is not actually the Party of Moral Superiority, because if you bought that crock of doo doo in the first place, you are incapable of being swayed by evidence.
I used to think that the Democrats want to control your money and the Republicans want to control your life. Nowadays, though the Republicans (motto: Go To Hell!) still want to control your life, and they dislike spending your money, they are perfectly happy to spend your children’s and grandchildren’s money by running up a debt so huge that Bill Gates and Warren Buffet combined couldn’t pay it off. Frankly, I don’t know WHAT the Democrats (motto: What? We’re supposed to have a motto? Ummmm, We’re Not Republicans!) want to do.
What I really want to know is, why isn’t there a viable third party yet? The Greens (motto: We Keep Democrats From Getting Elected!) seem to have a few signature issues and not much to say about other important stuff. But what about the Libertarians (motto: Free-Living Kooks, All Of Us!)?
They’ve been around forever. The basic idea appeals to both socially liberal Democrats and fiscally conservative Republicans. If they had a.) a well-articulated platform, and b.) some credible candidates, they would sweep the elections. Why don’t they have these things?
Will some non-kook Libertarians please stand up and take over the country?
