"This criticism is usually followed by a certain posturing from the critic that he is somehow morally superior because he has maintained a purity that I have not."
I get this sometimes, too. The plain truth is this: you and I (and many others) ARE moving the ball down the field, away from tyranny and towards liberty. I know this. I saw congressional candidates start talking about sound money this cycle a mere 6 months after I started talking to them about auditing the Fed.
Those same federal office candidates are questioning the efficacy of the war on drugs, the Wilsonian foreign policy, and whether the HUD, Commerce, and Education Departments are doing more harm than good.
I have no illusions that a constitutional republic is one cycle away nor might we return to it in my life time but I know we're gonna get closer to it...soon.
Zionist? Well, there goes taking anything u write serious.
We applaud your passion and involvement and commitment to work for those who talked the talk. However, not all of the messengers of the message liberty or otherwise, will make it to the envisioned destination. In fact, probably few do. Their delivery and results might be ineffectual and even hurtful to the cause. Their flaws, if they continue unabated, detrimental personally and professionally. The distraction becomes a turn-off from the message instead of an enlightenment. We thank them for their attempts but for those folks I say, time to hand off the baton.
By framing it as an argument between doing absolutely nothing and flailing about with anything, you've framed it deceptively.
What you've chosen to do is invest your time and energy in a candidate and a system which are integrally defective. This is time and energy which could have been invested in more fruitful efforts outside the mainstream political system.
You should be commended for your effort, but it back-fired. You didn't merely walk home empty-handed, you got cuckolded and exploited. You supported a candidate who threw his political capital behind his Zionist warmonger son, flipped on mass immigration and amnesty, and backed down on the pivotal issues when cornered.
You didn't merely take a risk which came up short...you made a tactical mistake. Making mistakes is all well and good, unless you refuse to learn from it...as appears to be the case.
Thanks for what you do Jack.
In case people have forgotten how to add & subtract, our nation has been taken over by the worst criminal cabal called Wall Street, stealing money at will by the mega billions and manufacturing an endless war on provoked victims we steal their polluting oil and allow their dope to flow freely on our streets for a police state prison system with over 1 million Americans behind bars denied jobs or decent food to eat.....we have changed since FDR spelled out our 4 freedoms into a fascist corporation called the Pentagon, more honestly called the War Department from 1787 to Harry Truman... we need to elect people in Congress who will live by the Constitution not the jack boot pork barrel of mega weapons and mega corruption devaluing our money.... we can have Democracy for the 99% or we can have willing tea bagger idiots who vote for Boner & Reid & Obusha who just keep on spreading their tit for tat lies while the trillion dollar heist each 3 months now clicks onto number 17 trillion our grand children are indentured to pay...843-926-1750 @LarryAccomplish .... we need to jail those who take bankster bonus money not keep paying them and allow them to run the Federal Reserve & trade stocks by the millions per minute.... we can tax each stock sale one penny to keep a paper trail of this huge swindle intermingled with honest businesses of Americans making good products & services.....
Great Article Jack as always. Governor Mark Sanford is a principled Conservative who kept his pledge for three terms and he left when he said he would. It has been over twelve years since Governor Sanford has served in Congress. And the Three Terms was for three Consecutive terms, Which was a Promise that he Kept. Governor Sanford only took the money after the Legislature went around him. His Fiscal Prudence is desperately needed in Washington Dc.
Modern Medicine is marvelous to behold.
What about Teddy Turner and Curtis Bostic? They would be much better choices than the corrupt influence peddlers we have in office now. Teddy Turner went to the Citadel and Bostic served in the military. We don't even have a reliable news outlet in Charleston. Just a bunch of blow hard opinion articles with a tabloid approach.
Ft Worthless Newt Gingrich & Marcus Sanford gave USA the CONTRACT ON AMERIKA that bankrupted the nation once only 3 trillion in debt before the repeal of Glass Steagal & the treasonous theft of the White House by the Bush Crime Family in Florida .... Sanford & Bobby Harrell belong in prison, not running loose flying to Argentina or Columbia
I P YEUNGLING beer breath boy spreads more lies against the people and their government ignoring the facts of exploiters, polluters & war criminals he seems to love.... wealth is created by labor .... wealth is not created by banksters who steal, embezzle devalue & counterfeit "money" nor is wealth created by stock manipulators & speculators who only want to cheat the workers who create the wealth..... it is the corrupt cabal of corporations who bribe elected officials, regulators & TRAITOR jurists like Thomas & Kagin that is giving government by the people for the people of the people BAD NAMES
.... I don't agree with much of Catastrophe Matt writes but the fascist confederate racists here won't admit what truth he does print
The City of Green Bay owns the Packers. The City of Cleveland owns their own power saving residents from the corrupt deadly slow cancer nuke vicious profiteering of private utilities. Clemson University is making solar electric transit bus vehicles and we need to put people to work building enough of them for the entire state and for export to the world for growing our economy in shared wealth. 843-926-1750 Larry Carter Center for Congress @LarryAccomplish
Charleston could be a world class city if only visionary Green leaders are chosen to fight for what is needed, TRAINS & TRAMS & public transit co-generating power to abate polar ice melt.... We live on a globe polluted by the gangsters who give money to criminals like Marcus Sanford & Bobby Harrell..... we need to jail any corporate officer who gives ANY MONEY to politicians .... MONEY IS NOT SPEECH AND corporations are ONLY PROPERTY limited to products/services.... PERIOD. www.movetoamend.org @MoveToAmend @LarryAccomplish 843-926-1750 we can build our new system with private bond sales PUBLICALLY OWNED utility making power atop rivers & ocean waves, wind generators atop each exhaust pipe & solar along south sides of every system & building..... we need to make hydrogen engines to replace the poison fossil fuel burning systems & make electric vehicles that do not poison our lungs & drinking water as do the slow cancer nukes Larry_Carter_Center@yahoo.com Green Party Candidate for Congress
Wounded Knee,,,,our government thought that it would be better, for their own good and safety, that the Sioux surrender their weapons,,,as a result 297 sioux were killed 200 being women and children,,,,and as a result of this horrible tragedy,,,,medals of honor were awarded to soldiers.
You do realize there are both Federal and state auto limitations? "Street legal" has meaning.
Your weak analogy was a poor use of sarcasm. Irony fail.
The only thing Sanford is good for is providing fodder for the late night comedians. But, given that the majority of voters in this state voted for Romney, I wouldn't be surprised if they elected him to office again. I bet if we could prop Strom Thurmond's corpse up long enough they'd vote for him again, too.
I happen to agree completely with the comments by CIACulinaryKid! In fact, I think we should take it a step further and ban all cars with more than, oh let's pick a meaningless arbitrary number, 150 horsepower. If you need a bigger engine than that then you should be banned from driving worldwide and your photo should be published so that we can pick your whack ass out in a crowd.
If you're not in the military or law enforcement, why the hell would you need one? Compensation for your tiny penis? Or to impress girls who otherwise wouldn't give you a second glance? Puh-lease, CIACulinaryKid, get a grip on life. That shit's done with.
And what the hell do the Swiss have to do with anything?? If you love them so much, take your bitch ass to Switzerland!
Come on FCB, you don't really consider me an asshole do you? Here i was thinking ... you and I have been able to converse and post on here in a civil manner and very respectful. Unless you just mean Jim Demint?
Contrary to the prevailing opinion of most city paper posters, conservatives are not monsters. We are your neighbors, family and friends.
Having a different opinion of how our republic should continue is not the definition of an asshole.
There are more than enough assholes around the country no matter the ideology
Surely there is a better subject for your column Jack, than to try to help Mark Sanford resurrect a political career. His conservatism may well deserve credit, unfortunately his personal conduct in office deserves ridicule.
No matter his political bent, he deserves no more support than any of the other philandering office holders no matter the party or ideology.
"conservative asshole "
