Chris Bray, an always interesting blogger, asked his readers (here: https://chrisbray.substack.com/p/lets-talk-about-this), about the current political situation in the run up to the 2024 election.
To which I wrote:
First, I’m a libertarian that votes Republican because the LP itself is pointless. Aside, I’ve voted for exactly one Democrat in my entire life, and that was a friend, and I wish I had that vote back.
I say that to say this: I am tired of the Republican Party. I must get two to five texts a day from one or another Republican asking for money. I’m reminded of the time back when the Republicans took control of Congress in 1994. Same thing. Here’s what I said then and what I say now: do the contract and stop asking me for money. More to the point, indict, impeach, stop spending money!
Which leads to your second point. Yeah, I can’t talk you out of that conclusion. Ron Paul has never been wrong. He’s just been way ahead of his time. The political class will have monopoly control of a worthless pile. They can fire up only so many Waco’s before they get their ass handed to them.
And three, that would be the tell wouldn’t it. I disagree with RFK about just everything short of vaccines. I nevertheless see him as an honest man and, potentially an ally. If they pull the law care card on him–more likely, I think, straight character assassination if not worse, God forbid. Then we’ll know.
Then we’ll know.
