If you're thinking of supporting "the lesser of two evils" .....

In 1952, Constitutionalists supported Eisenhower as "the lesser of two evils" and we got HEW (which became HHS).


In 1968, Constitutionalists supported Nixon "the lesser of two evils" and we got the EPA and peacetime wage and price controls.



In 1980, Constitutionalists believed the Republican Party was finally awakening to the need for a smaller Federal Government, and we got the biggest deficits in history to that point, and the largest tax increase in history to that point. []

In 1988, Constitutionalists stuck with the Republicans and we got a massive tax increase and an increase in Federal economic regulation unmatched since FDR.

In 2000, Constitutionalists stuck with the Republicans and we got runaway Federal spending, reckless deficits, and socialized prescriptions.

Many years ago, there was a TV show about a family who was shipwrecked, along with another passenger from the vessel.

Week after week, this passenger would betray the family, would stab them in the back.

Week after week, they not only forgave him, they continued to trust him.

Being fictional characters, their naivete did no harm in the real world.

The naivete of those who continue to trust the Republican Party will have major harm in the real world: it will prevent any reversal of the pell-mell rush toward authoritarianism both Beltway parties are legislating, regardless of how much insincere Constitutionalist rhetoric they spout.

Being a realist, I vote Libertarian.

For Texas and Liberty,
