    Polling Time Comment

    Today is Wish-I-Could-Vote-For-Fred-Thompson Day.

    My ballot is gonna list a handful of RINOs, and a Libertarian, but no conservatives. So I can either vote for the least offensive RINO, or the Libertarian. I might just close my eyes, bite my lip, hold my breath, and vote for McCain, in the hopes that he'll ask Fred Thompson to be his running mate. I'd vote for Ron Paul, but in the Florida race, I think that will end up being a vote for Rudy Giuliani... kinda like voting for Nadar in '00 was a vote for Bush.

    The other thing on the ballot is a tax cut. (pdf) Whats funny is that you'd think a tax cut, on a ballot, would have virtually no chance of failure. The newspapers and TV stations here seem to have been fighting it with all their liberal might. 60% of voters have to say "I would like a little extra money in my pocket." Not only does this new amendment cut property taxes, but it also fixes other significant problems, many of which are harmful to Florida's economy. I'm worried that the liberal democrats in Florida are becoming too powerful, and they might actually have the ability to stop this from being passed.

    You could write in Thompson? Yeah, it may be a waste of a vote, but at least you get to vote for the person you really wanted...otherwise keep in mind your choices:
    You've got the guy who would impose his religion on you and to boot, he might as well be a Democrat because he has such a populist redistributive platform.(Huckabee)
    You've got the guy who was there on 9/11! 9/11! 9/11!...who was also a liberal "Republican" mayor of liberal New York City(Giuliani)
    You've got the guy who is a liberal governor of Massachussets.(Romney)
    You've got the "Republican" who no self-respecting Republican likes, who was endorsed by the "Democrat" who no self-respecting Democrat likes.(McCain)
    You've got the old curmudgeon paleo-conservative/libertarian Republican who votes along Republican lines almost 80% of the time, except with any new spending bills and the Iraq war, which are the two issues that will cause the Republicans to lose the general election this year. (Paul)
    Oh, and you've also got Alan Keyes...

    Ronald Reagan - "...at the heart of Republicanism is libertarianism."
    Barry Goldwater - "...extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice..."

    Oh, and man, I wish they would put a tax cut on our ballots someday...instead we have a county election for a $2 a week user fee for roads in Morgantown. Hooray! "Vote YES for better roads," say the adverts. I'm still waiting for them to tell me where exactly they plan on putting these "better roads."

    Too bad you live in a blue state. In WV, taxing the coal industry out of business is generally a higher priority than stimulating the economy. Of course, WV law works differently... FL has made it really really easy to amend the Constitution, so any time they want to pass something with no culpability, it ends up being an amendment to the constitution. Stupid! Regardless, there is still a great deal of concern this won't pass, mostly because uber-liberal organizations, the media, and Miami, have been feeding the public strange ideas about how we won't be able to run our school system if the state collects about $250 less from resident property owners (keep in mind, when I moved to FL, both my property tax and homeowners insurance more than DOUBLED.)

    There. I did it. I voted my conscience. I just couldn't bring myself to vote for someone who doesn't value our constitution. Crazy or not, Ron Paul is still better than authoritarians and socialists.
