Is that why he ran again in '96? He hated GHW that much?

Tenzing's favorite person and fellow Libertarian, Glenn Beck, interviewed Bob Barr for an entire hour on his show.

Who would've ever thought Tenzing would be simpatico politically with Glenn Beck?
Maybe Tenzing is really more liberal than libertarian than he wants to admit?
You already know that I regard Beck a poseur who doesn't understand the first thing about libertarianism. He's a major reason there are so many cluefucked, big-government right-wingers who are under the delusion that they're libertarian.

"I'm mostly libertarian except when it comes to American Imperialism and trampling individual liberty. Well, I guess I'm just mostly libertarian when it comes to guns and only guns."

Obama himself is not allowing ObamaKKKare to run its course, because that would sink the DemoKKKrats in 2014.
Eliminating the employer mandate, eliminating the cap, and putting premium subsidies on the honor system, all without benefit of legislation.
The plan was designed to come on line slowly and has plenty of room for adjustments as the needs appear.

My circle of friends includes family and then fellow members of three good sized civic organizations__I'm not hearing the nonsense that appears on this thread in real life except from old timers without a clue, persons who hate Obama, and a few young folks who've been going without coverage and "could" soon be forced to purchase a suitable plan or face a penalty.

But he had cute charts and terrific sayings, my favorite "every time THEY pass a law YOU lose a little more freedom."

Remember his Pacific Rim spiel???

Galt would vote for Rand Paul on the Libertarian ticket over Christie on the Republican ticket. The Republicans would probably lose badly, maybe even finish third, but might learn a lesson.
Right now, I would too. But I've learned you have to be careful on here about saying you like a future candidate too soon.

A lot of unforeseen things can happen between now and the primaries. But still, right now, I would too - if it were between the two of them.

Of course, that could change.

Why must I always prove known facts to you? Don't you read or keep up on your own?

(CBS News) The former head of a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya tells CBS News that in spite of multiple pleas from himself and other U.S. security officials on the ground for "more, not less" security personnel, the State Department removed as many as 34 people from the country in the six months before the terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.

Proof Of Politics: Indiana Fudges Truth On Health Exchange Rates To Make Obamacare Look Bad
Sometimes, the political urge simply overwhelms anything resembling common sense and appropriate behavior.
Witness the latest example of political skullduggery playing out in the great State of Indiana where GOP Governor Mike Pence has found it necessary to take extreme liberties with the reporting of the state’s healthcare exchange data—all to justify his anti-Obamacare political positioning.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2013/07...
as i said before...folks in Indiana know that taking republican politicians at their word makes you a bigger fool than they are.
As a Democrat, I am glad Pence is taking a stand against Obamacare and you are right Bush was considered a Pseudo Liberal too by many conservatives, but you got to realize too that most Democrats in Indiana align to the Right politically than their Democrats in the rest of the country who are considered Pseudo Liberal and to the far left and why Indiana is considered a conservative state(Red State).

Politics of Indiana

Historically, Republicans have been strongest in the eastern and central portions of the state, as well as the suburbs of the state's major cities. Democrats have been strongest in the northwestern and southern parts of the state along with the major cities. However, outside of Indianapolis, the Chicago suburbs, and Bloomington, the state's Democrats tend to be somewhat more conservative than their counterparts in the rest of the country, especially on social issues.

Beck told Barr in that interview he agreed with "nearly everything" Barr stood for and was running on.

There are differences of opinions on certain issues in the Republican party too but it doesn't mean we don't still agree on "nearly everything".

You and Beck apparently had more in common than you knew.

Shocking, I know! You might want to go and lie down for a while.

Its a chicken and egg thing. They won't attract stronger candidates 'til they get better numbers. They can't get better numbers as long as the Demopublicans make all the rules. The only way they can increase their numbers is through people like me doing what I'm doing.
The Libertarian party needs to capture a good sized city or any state. Louisiana was ripe for E Z pickins after the Katrina debacle which was, or should have been, a huge embarrassment for the R's and D's.

Until the party proves itself, it will remain an attitude rather than a force.

Registering (I) or (L) in my state leaves the voter standing on the sidelines during the primary season and that's not a good
thing.

Oh, for heaven's sakes...

I said it was post #965628! But for the third time, here was the original post. Now read the darn thing once and for all!

Senior Republicans have all but conceded that they won’t end up defunding Obamacare in a continuing resolution to keep the federal government open after the money runs out on Sept. 30.

They are considering a strategy to pass a two-month continuing resolution to keep government funded at existing levels until, roughly, the debt limit is reached. Then they would offer a sequester replacement in exchange for delaying or defunding Obamacare in order to avoid economic disaster.
