I actually do think he is confused, and that he has convinced himself that he is America's true conservative. I agree with you on everything you said about him, but I still think that the man doesn't know which side is up ...

That's a fact. The McLaughlin Group, including the the homely chick who looks like she's going to climax, every time she mentions "Bill Clinton".

At night, especially by one of Minnesota's lakes, they sound like screaming women.

I would say that the modern conservative is the traditional liberal ... the type of Western liberal going all the way back to the founding of America. Everyone on the Left is one form of socialist or another, deriving their ideas from Karl Marx. The Left merely uses the machinery created by the Founders to further their agenda.

Mr. Buchanan is merely confused ...

Well-stated, LW. We are a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. How many times does it have to be said?

Sometimes, people look back at ancient Greece and call it the "birthplace of democracy". As he sipped the poison ordered by the "democratic" government of Athens, I wonder what Socrates thought of the concept. His crime was "impiety", which in his case, could probably be described as disagreeing with the majority.

My view on the man was that he was killed because he was an idealist, and thought that democracy could be improved. Democracy is ... as you have said it ... 50% +1. The votes of the other 49% just as well not have been cast.

Concerning campaign finance abuse, a number of years ago, a committee from the Constitution Party of Illinois came to me and asked if I would consider running against Dick Durbin for the Senate. I gave them many reasons why I was not a good candidate, but they wouldn't hear of it. Finally, I told them that I would consider such a run if they showed me a check for $25 million. That would be the least amount of money needed to start such a campaign by an unknown candidate in a virtually unknown political party.

It's about time for a million armed and pissed-off Texans to descend on the Red River and the BLM like a vengeful horde.

I say that with full knowledge that the FED's argument for taking the land along the Red River might be an attempt to provoke such a response. But there comes a time when free men and women must take a stand. It started in Nevada. Perhaps it's time to put the fear of God into the animals who run this regime ...

It's fun to try ... if a little expensive!

You can really empty the magazine of a pump shotgun fast, if you're not jumpy about its recoil. This comes from practice. Pull the trigger ... recoil ... work the action as the muzzle comes back down ... blam. It is enjoyable.

As do I.

Every time someone starts talking third parties, I see the chaos which could result.

For example, several months into a House session, one or more parties declares that they will caucus with a party other than the "majority" party. Pressure builds to elect a new Speaker. No matter what the voters wanted at the polls, they would never know whether they had actually achieved victory.
