I'm a liberal and I don't support this damn administration! (english)
18 Jul 2003
"if we can bear sensible compromise, we might look into the candidacy of Howard Dean"
Regarding "What Happened to Conservatives?" by Republican-Libertarian Ron Paul (R-TX)

Rep. Ron Paul of Texas asks: "How could liberals be satisfied? They are pleased with the centralization of education and medical programs in Washington and support many of the administration's proposals." I'm a liberal, and I don't support a damn thing this administration has done -- not a damn thing.

Preemptive wars? No.
Privatization of federal services? No.
Affronts to civil liberties? No.
Huge media conglomerates? No.
Fiscally insane tax cuts? No.
Bloated deficits? No.
This "assault weapons" ban?

Having respect for the Constitution and all of its Amendments, I can no more support infringement on free speech as those against the right to bear arms. And privacy and abortion issues -- it just goes on and on. There are more people on your side than you realize.

This next election is important. Those that feel the way you do -- if we can bear sensible compromise -- might look into the candidacy of Howard Dean. He has a libertarian streak which suits me; maybe it'll suit others, as well. We may be an odd or unlikely medley of folks, but with the interests of America foremost, here we are.
