God-Speed Jack-- We will miss the shenanigans and the voice of a true conservative Charlestonian. See you on the Facebook.

all that's missing is the flight suit and the Mission Accomplished sign.

Re: “With my kind of conservatism on the rise, it's time to move on

Well, Jack, I couldn't help liking some of your columns the years, especially on international issues. You lost me with your support of Rand Paul and general Republicanism. Anyway, good luck. I will miss you to some extent.
Coincidentally, up here in Raleigh, the region's best newspaper, the News & Observer, just lost its regular rightwing columnist, Rick Martinez. Ricky, a more mainstream Republican, has gone off to work with our new Neanderthal governor.
I won't miss him to any extent.

I'm pretty surprised you were the Southern Avenger. That was so racist there was a national boycott and all the subscribers dropped their advertising for 96 Wave, that went out of business, and reinforced the negative stereotype of South Carolina being a racist place. Glad you moved on to a more credible platform and dropped the racist clown act, however all the racist theatrics, including the flag issue over the statehouse, was a distraction and didn't represent the views of most people.

I love how when Republicans are beaten down they declare victory and "move on".

You're not a libertarian, you're a neo-confederate anachronism. Bye!

Good luck. It was always nice to read columns from someone on the right that wasn't riding the Glenn Beck bandwagon.

Re: “Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement

Ron Paul killed his own chances. Ron Paul's more like great chum when you fish. Ron Paul never intended to win the Presidency. He did a great job nurturing and farming future blind Republicans at colleges across the country that would be dumb enough to settle for the likes of Rand Paul or Gary Johnson. Jack's just another paid wheel, he'd support anyone he could get a paycheck from.

Re: “Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement

@ Steven, "Jack did sell out, first to Gary Johnson, and now to Rand Paul". I dont see how this is selling out. Has he stopped supporting the principles that Paul advocates? Of course not. He is now supporting other candidates that's all. Do they all agree with Ron Paul on everything? No, but politics is not about purity and perfection otherwise we would never advance the goal of liberty. Unless you can clone Ron Paul no one is going to advocate everything he supported all the time. Rand Paul is one of the good guys and I frankly reject this attitude that says "Oh well if you dont support not Ron Paul then you hate liberty" This is not how politics works. If the best man is no longer in politics like Ron Paul then you work within the system, like Ron Paul did, to get the next possible best thing. Thats how the real world works. I proudly supported and voted for Ron Paul in the primaries both times but he didnt win. Ok so I go on to the next best candidate. Will there be another Ron Paul? Probably not but that there are other good candidates out there.

I would remind you Scott that no less a libertarian than Mr Libertarian himself Rothbard publicly supported George H.W.Bush and Pat "Protectionist Tariff"Buchanan. He understood the the real world. I agree more and more each day that its insane unfounded conspiracy theories like the Jews are behind this and that and everything else and Obama is a Muslim Kenyan that killed Ron Paul's chances.

Re: “Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement

As you see Javier. Jack did sell out, first to Gary Johnson, and now to Rand Paul. He's a political opportunist. Ron Paul's campaign staff was riddled with incompetence. Ron Paul could have obtained 5% of the vote and secured funding for the Libertarian movement. Ron Paul bailed out twice.

Too bad Bill Clinton's career ended because of his affair. Oh, wait.

Re: “Mark Sanford is needed in Washington now more than ever

If Bathhouse Barry can get elected after three of this former lovers are murdered just before he starts his presidential campaign, Sanford would have this in the bag....however Sanford's "potential" supporters expect a lot more from a politician than the Obama supporters expect from their "savior"

Re: “Sequestration should teach conservatives to stop arguing like liberals

Remember, it wasn't too long ago that O'bama cut $600B from defense. So most of today's cuts are a result of that reduction, not sequestration.
