Re: “From gun control to the Patriot Act, conservatives and liberals can never be too extreme in defending our rights

Right now in the Kabul City Paper, some Islamic militant is writing an op-ed justifying his extremism too. I guess it makes sense, Islamic militants have a lot in common with the American Right - their views on women and other minorities and their ambitions for total theocracy, for example. You guys should get together and exchange notes.

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

It's interesting how so many of the comments against this column don't attack Mark Sanford's brand of conservatism (what this column is actually about), but instead question Jack's motives for writing it...as if Jack hasn't always agreed with Sandford. Same for the Pauls; he was praising them long before he was working for them. If Jack ever touts the virtues of Lindsey Graham and follows it up with a paycheck, then you'll actually have a point.

Also, it looks like Larry's using his other logins to give his posts artificial likes. That is all.

Re: “Remaining marginal is no badge of honor

Jack, the criticism of you from the anarcho-libertarian individuals was inappropriate. Your rebuttal ought to have been merely defensive of your own beliefs rather than returning the offense and calling people "cowards". All of the efforts to advance the cause of liberty have a positive effect. Some people will act insecurely and that is regrettable. Please try to avoid following the same course.

Re: “Remaining marginal is no badge of honor

Political disconnectedness is not necessarily the result of apathy or cowardice. Agorism is just a different (apolitical) tactic to achieve the same goal.

What you should be doing is applauding apolitical efforts while making the case for whatever political efforts you support.

Either you do not understand these apolitical efforts or you are experiencing cognitive dissonance because that is not the path you have chosen.

I take little issue with people not caring, only take issue with people who don't care voting.

Re: “Remaining marginal is no badge of honor

"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.

Re: “Remaining marginal is no badge of honor

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.

Re: “Remaining marginal is no badge of honor

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.
