"so I lean on you sometimes just to see if you’re still there"
Brendan Kelly - “Kiss The Bottle” (Jawbreaker cover)
I summed up my issue with Libertarians for a friend like this: Ultimately they want all the same thing conservatives want - no food stamps, no welfare, no free education, no public health initiatives, no taxes - but they’re almost kind of meaner about it. The ONLY difference between a Republican Congressman and the 19-year-old kid in your dorm hallway with the RON PAUL 2012 sticker is that the latter is more into weed and against war. Which liberals have been on board with, you know, pretty much always. To borrow from Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada: “Groundbreaking.”
Thinking Ron Paul is a genius because he’s anti-war and anti-drug laws is like thinking a Big Mac is good for you because it has lettuce and a pickle.
