We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In his selection of Gov. Palin, McCain has exposed what was perhaps Obama’s greatest weakness, namely how the Obama project has really been a last-ditch attempt by Democrats to extend the miserable life of the New Deal/Great Society Democratic Party — the very bloated big government model they have pushed with the past three candidates: Al Gore, John Kerry, and now Barack Obama. Can anyone really tell the difference between these political triplets?
Make no mistake; Democrats are frantic now that the man behind the curtain has been revealed. Despite their shameless attempt to mask their plans behind identity politics, the Obama campaign has always been about big government liberalism, labor union dinosaurs, and K Street fat-cat lobbyists — Washington politics as usual. America saw this with his vice-presidential pick, Joe Biden.
I wish I could find vid to link but I heard McCain talk about nuclear fuel reprocessing in Colorado Springs today as something we must do!! Got me all hot and bothered.... Finally somebody wants to fix that stupid, stupid policy of Jimmah's.
As a Navy Man, McCain knows that the US Navy pioneered nuclear power and have been going to sea in nuclear powered ships and submarines for over fifty years. I dare say that this wonderful source of energy could have made us energy independant by now if environmentalists and their surrogates in the Democratic party had not been successful in derailing nuclear power plant licensing and construction back in the seventies.
McCain/Palin now for an energy self-sufficient America tomorrow!
