Liberty -vs- Tyranny

Indeed, the current field of presidential candidates falling all over themselves to win the "R" nomination to run for president against Obama 2012 are devoid of... 1) A proper philosophy of governance, 2) ethical principles, 3) consistency, 4) a clue as to our nations real problems and what it will take to resolve them.

Principles and vision does matter.


  1. if we are comparing the founding fathers to political philosophies of today i would place Libertarianism as closest to their line of thinking, not Conservativism.

  2. btw, Les, i presented my argument on taxes too.

  3. Or "Classical Liberalism. Especially as that is what the founding fathers were... Classical Liberals.

  4. Jack Hunter is great. Did you ever catch Wes's show, Les, where we both talked to him for an hour or so? It was last year.
