The lesser of two evil auto repair shops

It never ceases to amaze me that people will not tolerate shoddy workmanship, poor performance or overcharging when it comes to plumbers, electricians and auto mechanics. They won’t even stand for a player on their favorite sports teams who doesn’t given one hundred percent.

But they’ll willingly vote for a political party or candidate who has proven, time and time again, that they won’t keep their promises. They’ll willingly cast their vote for the “lesser of two” evils.

This reminds me of a story:

DemoCRIPS vs. ReBLOODlicans

Forget having to vote for a Demopublican or a Republicrat, Tweedledum or Tweedledee, Thelma or Louise, or the lesser-of-two-evils. Jessie Ventura has come up with perhaps the definitive description of the so-called major political parties. He calls them the DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans, noting they even use the same colors as the street gangs.

Ventura also suggest these candidates war NASCAR type uniforms, so we can clearly see who has bought and paid for their services. Read more here and watch the CNN interview here, where Ventura endorses Gary Johnson for president.

Gary Johnson Endorsement

I was proud to receive this endorsement from Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president.

Noting my 25 years of military service, Gov. Johnson said, “Brian has repeatedly demonstrated the courage and integrity to honor the oath he’ll take as a member of the Congress: to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We need that integrity in our Congress now more than ever.”

I’m equally proud to endorse and support Gov. Johnson for president, because he’s the only candidate who will end America’s interventionist foreign wars and bring our troops home.  He will stop out of control spending, and advance our personal liberty just as he did as Governor of New Mexico.

Today I was proud to receive the endorsement of Liberty-Candidates.org. Here is their press release:

Gary Johnson for President

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson won the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States Saturday, beating North Carolina native son R. Lee Wrights on the first ballot.

Accepting the nomination, Johnson said, “Millions of Americans want and deserve the opportunity to vote for a candidate in November who will get us out of the war in Afghanistan immediately, truly cut federal spending, end the failed war on drugs, repeal the Patriot Act, and support marriage equality.

“I am excited to offer that option: A proven fiscal conservative, a proven defender of civil liberties, and an advocate for social tolerance.”

CISPA Another Assault on the Constitution

Whenever a Congressional bill is praise for being “bipartisan” there’s one thing you can be sure of: it’s an assault on the U.S. Constitution and your freedom and liberty. You can also be certain that the more “bipartisan” the bill is, the greater the damage to your rights.

Such is the case with HR 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), which just passed the House 248-168.

District 2 Rep. Renee Ellmers voted for the bill.

For the record, I would not have voted for the bill.
