  • Don’t vote. There’s an old saying, “Actions speak louder than words.” Said another way, “If you want to know what a person values, don’t listen to what they say, only watch what they do.” Think about it. The political system in America is populated with men and women who give lip service to the Constitution, but then go on to vote for every unconstitutional spending bill presented to them. They talk about the virtues of our constitutional republic, and then act to subvert and violate that very system of government.
  • Netroots nothing. The ancestors to the Netroots Nation are the knee-jerk liberals of the Democratic Party’s sorry past. We are finding out that Obama’s ideological leanings are – like oil in the world’s vast global markets – fungible. Like Republican national leaders of the recent past, Obama will try to borrow and spend the country’s way to prosperity if elected. He said a few weeks ago that balancing the budget is no longer a priority for him. About the only thing liberalism shares in common with libertarianism is a belief that people should be left alone to pursue whatever lifestyles and associations that they choose.
  • On flags in church and conservative-Protestant worship of the state, rather the mirror of the small religious left’s statism; the latter rightly don’t like flags in church but might as well have them.
  • Cold Stone Dead Creamery. I’ve never been but am not missing anything.
