Ah, John McCain, John McCain. Many self-described conservatives are putting up at least a show of displeasure and resistance at McCain (kinda like how a prostitute might feign shock, dismay, and mild resistance for a customer before giving him what is already bought and paid for). But they will take whatever the party mucky-mucks dictate, and will rally round the fake conservative so-called lesser of two evils again, out of their terror of a Dem in office. Same ol same ol.
So, McCain was on my shit list from day one for attempting to ban my favorite sport, and that was only the beginning of his stupid ideas on what he thinks is good for the rest of us, which he thinks he has the power to impose by force of law. McCain Feingold? Assault weapons ban? Trigger locks on your gun? Closing the so-called "gun show loophole"? Patriot Act? the list of stupidity and sell-outs of the Constitution is endless.
Ah well. People get the government they deserve - or to be more accurate, those who support McCain, Clinton, or Obama will get exactly what they deserve, but unfortunately those dumb asses will drag the rest of us over the cliff too.
So, I've been off working in grass-roots efforts for Ron Paul, teaching classes on the Constitution, working on some interesting constitutional law cases, and doing the whole Clark County Nevada Republican Party Convention thing (interesting experience, to say the least) and will be a delegate to the Nevada State Republican Party Convention. That should also be interesting.
I am hearing that many delegates from other states are going to Ron Paul, so who can say what will be the final result of the Nevada State Convention. What happens if conservatives across America "just say no" to McCain and actually do the right thing, for once, and go with Ron Paul? Man, that would be craaaazy! Totally off the hook! Not likely to happen in enough numbers to dump the geezer from Arizona, but who knows? I have been wrong before when it comes to the crazy world of politics. I hope I am wrong again.
Anyway, I will try to post more regularly again. Sometimes I just need a break from blogging, but then I feel a need to vent and am back at it.
