Forbes: America Needs A Ron Paul-Gary Johnson Presidential TicketSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Mon, 04/30/2012 - 18:27
The November election is looking to be another dreary choice between the lesser of two evils. Do you want the big spending interventionist or the big spending interventionist? One probably would spend a bit more money while the other one probably would start a few more wars.
American democracy at its best!
A few years back—I’ve forgotten the particular profligate war-mongers involved—the Cato Institute’s president, Ed Crane, posited that the foundation’s policy staffers were forced into the voting booth at gunpoint. Which of the evils would we choose? Several of us responded: pull the trigger!
So it appears likely to be in November. We already know that President Barack Obama goes to bed dreaming of new spending schemes and has yet to meet a civil liberty that he is unwilling to violate.
