Time for a Change

I would vote for Dr. Ron Paul no matter what party he was in. But since he will not be the Republican nominee for President this year, I have decided to undo my Republicanness. I have filled out and sent my new voter registration as what I really want to be: a Libertarian.

Libertarians believe that being free and independent is a great way to live. We want a system which encourages all people to choose what they want from life; that lets them live, love, work, play, and dream their own way.
Sounds great to me!

What is hilarious (and hopeful) to me is that Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty (I suppose that's what he started up with all his left over campaign cash) is having a "Rally for the Republic" in the same town, at the same time as the Republican Convention, but in a BIGGER venue.

Yep, my main main is expecting (potentially) more people at this rally than will show up for the Repubs. That would be funny. And cool. Jesse Ventura will be there. And some superstar country singer named Sara Evans will sing. I wonder of Bob Barr will go. I wish I could go. Oh how much fun to mingle with liberty loving folks who want to party. Sigh.

As usual, the media will most likely throw a huge heap of ignore on the rally and the good Dr.

But I will be following it and the Campaign for Liberty with interest.

I think I have changed parties three times. I'd like to create the "Golden Rule" party. A party where we put others first and the Golden Rule applies. Where stay at home parents get a tax break rather than forcing us to enroll our babies in preschool. Where science and smartiness (I watch a lot of Stephen Colbert) is focused on rather than 'bigfoot sightings'. Join me! We'll change the world! LOL sadly I'm too tired to do more than talk about it. I have laundry and a girl scout meeting I have to organize. Plus the vet, the dentist, etc. No wonder women don't get involved more. We're busy maintaining the home front. Rock on sister!

Why weren't we friends at Northgate? You are a cool mama.

Thanks Nutmeg. I think I was a very guarded person on high school. And clueless. That's probably why.

The Golden Rule is perfect for private, personal interactions, but I don't think it works on a macro level. Too close to socialism.

I love Colbert too. Don't have TV so I have to watch snippets online. My son loves him too - unfortunately he learned about marijuana from Colbert. Doh!
