Syndicated talk radio host Neal Boortz hosted a poll on his webpage yesterday regarding Republicans and limited government. Interesting comments:
Yesterday we had a poll right here on Nealz Nuze. The question was "Do you think Republicans are still committed to the concepts of smaller government and individual liberty?" Only 13% of the people who responded said yes. A not-surprising 87% said no.
Hey ... I'm with the 87%. At this point anyone who actually thinks that the Republican Party has any intention whatsoever to shrink the size of the massive, bloated Imperial Federal Government of the United States is living in a dreamland. Republicans or Democrats .. doesn't matter. Government will continue to grow and personal liberties will continue to fade. Are there advantages with either party? At least the Republicans recognize that cutting taxes actually increases government revenue, and the Republicans seem to be willing to protect our nation and our interests. In times like these when the terrorist threat is so great, this is a huge plus for the Republican side. We may end up as slaves to the massive federal bureaucracy, but at least we'll be safer, not safe ... just safer ... from Islamic goon squads.
But what about freedom and smaller government. The answer is as it was. The Libertarian Party.
What's true here in Indiana is true nationally. This why so many fiscal conservatives and former Republicans come to the Libertarian Party and tell me, "I didn't leave the Republican Party. The Republican Party left me".
