sorabji.com: Who are you?: a right-wing extremist

By rwtrace on Wednesday, January 15, 2003 - 05:20 pm:

    I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is 'needed' before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents' interests, I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.

    To bad the Republicans never follow through on that promice.

    We'd need to elect a Libertarian for that.

    But, I don't think one will be elected for decades.

    fucking A.

    where did my post go?

    hey Trace, you support queers in the military? sissies in uniform?

    Goldwater is actually one of the more fly Repubs in office, and he's a big ole queer to boot!

    "hey Trace, you support queers in the military? sissies in uniform? "

    I support anyone who wants to serve in the military to be able to serve.
    "Queers" as you so elequently put it are not the problem.
    My beef is with those who go in, thinking they will get a free ride to college, and have a fit when they are deployed to a forward unit...

    so you think Barry Goldwater an extremist?

    so if he's an extremist, what does that make someone like P.Buchanan?

By trace on Thursday, January 16, 2003 - 09:01 pm:

    Pat Buchanan?

    you sure like tossing that word around.

    if this thread doesnt demonstrate your idealogical confusion trace, i dont know what does.

By patrick on Friday, January 17, 2003 - 02:13 pm:

    Goldwater embodies true conservative and republican ideals that you claim to desire yet to you, he's an extremist.

    and why P the B is a traitor to you, is beyond me. You two have more in common than you probably know, based on positions you've stated here.

By trace on Friday, January 17, 2003 - 02:33 pm:

    I did not call him an extremist, his own book did that. I was quoting from his book, confessions of a right wing conservative.

    Pat B is a traitor because he left the republican party for a third party.

    i am trying to recall which one, but I am wanting to say libertarian?

    Phil Graham, now there's my man...

By patrick on Friday, January 17, 2003 - 02:41 pm:

    PB he left for the Reform party i think. Perot's screwball party.

    Unless we read the book, we would not know he views himself as an extremist. It looks like you are calling him an extremist and using his book except as example.
