    My response to a Rand 2016 fundraising email

    I gave him a little money for his original Senate campaign, really just because of his father. Now he's positioned himself as the head cheerleader for the 2014 Republican Senate campaign. Does that make him Mitch McConnell's toady?


    I know this was an automated message sent to everyone on your mailing list, but I'll answer anyway, just in case anyone ever reads this.

    Whatever differences actually exist between Republicans and Democrats, and there are precious few, they reduce to niggling details, inconsequential nothings, when viewed from the broader perspective of individual liberty. I view Rand generally favorably, but he's far from being his father, who had even his own imperfections. But I have absolutely zero regard for the Republican Party. None. The Republican Party is so indistinguishable from the Democratic Party that I have no preference of one over the other. No preference whatsoever. The lesser-of-two-evils canard is false choice nonsense, especially when neither is actually lesser.

    Tell Rand that if he ever wants a penny of my money again, he needs to come to me as an advocate of liberty, first and only. I have no regard for this petty and fruitless inter-party slap fight.

    You have the communist party and the super-communist party.

    I left the GOP in the mid-90's when they refused to eliminate the dept. of Ed when they had their chance

    There is not a spit of pearl-jam difference among the parties, they are all progressives striving to make-things-better and screw US with the unintended consequences - like never repealing/rescinding substantial laws or regulations.
    If TRUMP 2016 loses then I will shrug off my WHITE MAN'S BURDEN and leave the world to the Dindus and Done Nuffins. Read and understand Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a prescription for the future. TRUMP 2016

    Nice! Well said.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
