Big vs. bigger government candidates

Sarah Palin hasn’t shown up yet, but President Obama has visited Massachusetts to campaign for the Democratic Party’s anointed one. It’s amusing watching the Republicans salivate over the possibility of electing one of their own to the “Kennedy seat” in the U.S. Senate. It’s even more amusing listening to the mainstream media pontificate about how a GOP upset would destroy the Democrats super-majority in the Senate and doom health care reform.

Baloney!

Republican Scott Brown is as much a big government advocate as the Democrat Martha Coakley, and at least she admits it. Aa small government crusaders Michael Cloud and Carla Howell point out on their website, Brown spoke against referendum initiatives to abolish the Massachusetts state income tax and lower the state sales tax.

So pardon me if I don’t give a fig about which big government politician is elected to the Senate. Oh, by the way, there is an libertarian in the race, running as an independent by the name of Joe Kennedy. But even with that name he’s generally ignored by the media and accused of being a “spoiler” by the Republicans.

  1. In every other election I would agree with this blog as a libertarian. However, in as much as I never thought I’d make this statement about an election, some pragmatism is due in this one. Because the only thing worse than the two big government parties having all the power, is one big government party having all the power. If Scott Brown’s election can derail the health care disaster pending in congress then every libertarian should support him.
