The Addition of Alan Keyes

This is a great article, by Johnny Kramer from Lew Rockwell.com Here is just a sample:

Going back over the last generation, what was the urgent difference between George W. Bush and John Kerry, George W. Bush and Al Gore, Bill Clinton and Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, or George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis?

In reconsidering these races, don’t look back on them in terms of relatively trivial distractions like gay marriage, stem cell research or medical marijuana; think in terms of fundamental questions about the legitimacy and nature of the state:

For example, by what right does the state presume to tax your income at any level? Are you still a free person when you have a portion of your income confiscated as the price of making a living? If you believe you are still free now, at what level of (arbitrarily determined – but, of course, not by you) confiscation would you no longer consider yourself to be free?

By what right does the state presume to steal another 15% of your income, supposedly on the assumption that you’re too inept to save for your own retirement?

And what does the addition of Alan Keyes, another radical neocon, have to do with this? Read on and find out...

What a staggeringly dumb idea

.
Alan Keyes. I remember him. Long ago. Running again? (Yawn). What's on TV?

Keyes for RP Vice-President

has been mentioned on this site,now you know why he wouldn't be a very good choice.
1. Neo-Con
2. former UN representative
3. walks with the ducks and quacks like them too

Walter Williams would be an excellent choice he is articulate and
a strong Constitutionalist !!!

Paul/Williams in 2008 !!!!

"Freedom is a right that can never be won in war,only by each individual "

Articulate?

I'll bet he's clean too. Paging Joe Biden. Mr. Biden, you have a call at the front desk.

Alan Keyes?????

I'm sorry, but after hearing Keyes speak in the values debate last night, I would vote for Alicia Keyes before Alan Keyes.
Does anyone really think he is a good speaker??
Holy Cow that was bad. Did he actually wrap up every comment last night with GAAWWWWWD?

Wow, it was disturbing...former ambassador or not, he is really terrible.

Congressman Paul did great as usual with the same positions he has had all along. That's why we love him.
Huckabee winning was an easy prediction. He almost seemed like he was preaching from the pulpilt last night.
The Heathen Giuliani wisely stayed away from this one! LOL

Alan Keyes?

GAAAWWD, he scares me. I wonder if he has a snake close by?
