One thing I noticed clearly in the last sets of presidential debates between Obama and the Mormon, were that they both had the same goals and destinations, just different ways of getting there. So yeah, two sides of the same coin. To coin a phrase.
The fact that you can't get Rush or Hannity or any of the main-stream conservative talking heads to back the idea of the third-party candidate as haveing a chance to win, tells me clearly that they don't WANT anything different. Rush has a big enough audience that if he began to push for a good third party guy, there would truly be panic among the two parties in their comfort. But Rush is a party-player as is Hannity and all of them.
I follow the Ron Paul, Libertarian way of thinking, at least in many respects. For instance, tmany are against libertarians because they claim they are pro-homosexual marriage and marijuana use-however, that's not the case: they just believe, as the constitution demands, that these should be issues of state's rights to decide. Many states would stil be anti-homosexual, except the federal courts in those states trample the citizens' wills and declare that anti-homosexual marriage laws are unconstitutional, which of course, they aren't. Its the feds causing the problems. The states should be deciding most issues thermselves. And I suspect most would remain fairly conservative because most people want it that way. education, etc, should be state-lever, or local-level stuff. and the feds should be staying out ot them. But even many conservatives think its the federal government's job to declare all these laws as binding on the states, but it just isn't so.
So, a Libertarian wants to drop decisions down to the states, and get the feds out of them, for the most part. Its not about being pro or anti, its about getting their hands off where they don't belong. Our constitution was written with intelligent, common-sense, polite people in mind, not for an over-reacing federal power running every aspect of life. If we could get a good constitutional president in, as well as senators and congressmen, maybe some changes could be made.
