While I'm sympathetic to this guy's anti-war views...

And I'm all about putting anti-establishment bumper stickers on your car...

WHO THE HELL carries a digital audio recorder in a pistol case in their vehicle?  Why would you do that?

Not that there is anything WRONG with doing it...I just don't understand why you would.  It seems like it would just not work as well as, oh I don't know...a digital audio recorder case?

I realize that I'm just a dopy liberal who can't even understand something as simple as why you would want to gather together a large group of fundies to stage a revolt to turn South Carolina into a theocratic republic...

But it just seems odd to me.

But at least they're not alone.  Ron Paul understands them.  And is willing to take arrows for them.

Thank God for Ron Paul.

Thank God the poor misunderstood Americans who understand that we have to destroy America to save it have SOMEONE to go to bat for them.

Well, to answer your first question - the guy obviously didn't have much cash (door didn't work, window didn't work, etc.), so he protected his recorder with something that "fit" the recorder as best as possible. I thought it was a great little story, but reading the rest of his posts leads me to the conclusion that this guy is nut-bag.

Of course I totally disagree with this guy that Humanists have no moral compass (jeez - see Neil's site for that conversation).

As for the rest, whatever, these people are much less threatening to me than the current situation with our government.

Why would secession destroy America - We are granted the opportunity, even assigned the responsibility, to re-create our government if it gets too big for it's own britches (like King James) by the very founders of our current government. If some feel that the time is now, it is their right to try. Like I said, these people are much less threatening to me than the current situation...

You're pretty worked up today.

Mark,

There's a whole lot of Madison that you would have to read before we can have that discussion in a productive fashion.

I find it interesting that you seem to thing that the whole point of the Constitution is to limit government.

That wasn't the point of the constitution at all. The point of the Articles of Confederation were to limit government.

That didn't work out so well. The point of the constitution was to put a powerful central government in the hands of the people (checks and balances, the vote, popular sovereignty, free press, etc.)to allow them protection from abuses at the state level.

What bothers me about these guys is that they look at the Constitution, but for some reason they SEE the Articles of Confederation.

I don't look at as a problem that the government has gotten too big. I look at as a problem that we have citizens have gotten careless about using the tools given to us.

The rhetoric of the neo-confederates and the like bothers me greatly, because it is indeed as if the Constitution never happened when you are in conversation with them.

First time I've heard of neo-confederates. Nice terminology.

BTW - I just finished watching the debate. Oh boy, my man Ron Paul did terribly! Why in the world did he bring up the highway between Mexico and Canada? Like there's any chance of THAT happening. [eye roll]

One thing I don't like about the debates is that the candidates are not afforded equal time to speak. Candidates like Huckabee and Tancredo and ... see I can't even think of his name ... anyway - they don't get the time they deserve. I want to see all the candidates in action, not just Ghouliani, Romeo, and Tommy. Speaking of Tommy - did you see the debate? I'd swear he was hitting the sauce before the proceedings.

Mark,

I havn't seen them yet. Tonight was crazy. I think that parties are part of the problem...but so far, I've yet to find a third party that is LESS crazy than either of the big 2.

I wish there were a centrist party.

A free press would be nice too.

Also, it would be great if people didn't fall victim to the strategy of trying to increase voter apathy.

I always thought Huckabee seemed like a nice guy when I saw him on talk shows and the like. In the end, I've heard enough to not be interested in anything else he has to say. Too many deal breakers.

Seems that most of the candidates that I have an affible interest in anymore are mostly in that catagory because I haven't heard them SAY anything yet. There are some (like Ron Paul) who have some great points, and some nice-sounding principles, but the deal breakers are too numerous, and too important.

Then, there are those that have nothing of interest to say.

I don't know a lot about Tommy, but I have always thought he looks a little...vague...
