Bob Barr for President

And so due to McCain's unpalatability, I support Bob Barr for President of the United States. He is by far the candidate with the best conservative credentials.

He has a bit of a blind spot on the war in Iraq, true. But I agree with him that it was a politically motivated move by the neocons to take us in there, I just disagree with his call for withdrawal. The REAL bad guys are there now, Al Qaeda and their ilk, as well as al-Sadr, and we can't leave before we wipe them out.

But by and large, he is head and shoulders above John McCain, to say nothing of Barack Obama. I stand with Bob Barr. The national GOP needs a wake-up call on spending and civil liberties. This is it.

Bye bye, Cannon!!!

Congratulations to Jason Chaffetz. He just did the party and the nation a BIG favor... Chris Cannon has been an unabashed amnesty hound since he got to Congress. Now don't get me wrong, Cannon was great on some things, but he's the kind of "conservative" that needed to be sent a message.

Perhaps the most overlooked element about illegal immigrants is the costs. Everyone likes to point out the sovereignty, security and cultural problems they bring, but the clincher is they cost us a lot of money. The remittances leaving our economy, the social services they absorb, the jobs they take and devalue, the list goes on...

This by itself is enough to prevent me casting my vote for John McCain.
