We are for smaller government

We are for smaller government and space exploration. No better way to shrink government than to put golf carts on Mars to shoot rocks with lasers.

My thoughts exactly.

What happened to continuing the promotion into the private sector for space exploration? It seems like we should give it a chance at the very least. The Military Industrial Complex is behind this, you can count on this!

Thanks for the link

We'll see how it goes.

I agree with Yossarian

It irks me when people say "enhances" when they mean "increases."

So Kirby's amendment just got screwed out?

NC Village Idiot?

What's this Diebold idiot from North Carolina trying to do? LOL.

I strongly suggest

that we demand better representation. Wait a minute. I obviously meant I "strongly support."

No one cares

No one cares what is in a platform. Remember the 2000 platform. It was quickly ignored and forgotten.

Everyone knows....

....that politicians aren't in any way obligated to mind the platform.

But nonetheless, if the liberty movement gets some of its views onto the platform of the Republican Party, it makes it somewhat more difficult for Republicans to call us kooky for having those views, doesn't it?

It other words, it can help legitimize us in the eyes of the average Republican voter.

Sure it's a booby prize, but I'll take it.

How to prevent Voter Fraud ...the Irony....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

Irony

I tuned in just in time to hear a woman speaking with great animation in favor of photo ID's at the polls, lamenting how the Dems will cheat and steal elections.

I watched for few mins & this

I watched for few mins & this is looking like a disgusting neocon lovefest. All amendments are going unopposed (almost unanimous with no opposition). I don't have very good feeling about this.

Is this the John Sununu Politburo meeting that it was advertised to be?

GOP Politburo defeated

GOP Politburo defeated opposition to NDAA!

That confirms it! These thugs are all aligned with General Franco, Pinochet, Mussolini et. al. Brandon Raub sits in a psychiatric ward for saying pretty much what Jesse Ventura has said in his latest book.

None of these fascist thugs have ANY iota of credibility to talk about governments of China or Burma (Myanmar)...about Ai Weiwei, Aung San Suu Kyi etc.
