The guy who won the GOP nomination for Mike Castle’s House seat in Delaware seems to be a little nutty: Christine O’Donnell isn’t the only Delaware Tea Party candidate making waves. The seat in the House of Representatives currently held by Republican Mike Castle — who was defeated by O’Donnell in Tuesday’s Senatorial primary — […]

Ron Paul On Conservatives, War, And The “Ground Zero Mosque”

Ron Paul On The Primaries, The Tea Party, And The “Ground Zero Mosque”

From this morning’s CNN American Morning:

Ron Paul On “Ground Zero Mosque”: Demagoguery Rules When Truth And Liberty Are Ignored.

This statement from Congressman Ron Paul pretty much says what I think about the “Ground Zero Mosque” kerfuffle: Is the controversy over building a mosque near ground zero a grand distraction or a grand opportunity?

Ron Paul: I Don’t Believe For A Minute That Islam Is Our Enemy

Via Marion County Line, comes news of Congressman Ron Paul’s comments about the “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy: “I think it’s a big distraction, a grand distraction from the real issues… To me it should have been a grand opportunity, and you really touched on the opportunity, because it’s really a property rights issue, and who […]

Eric Cantor Joins The Anti-Mosque Hysteria

I haven’t been a fan of Eric Cantor since he joined John Boehner in pushing through the “crap sandwich” known as TARP, so this just confirms my opinion of him: Everybody knows America’s built on the rights of free expression, the rights to practice your faith, but come on. Yea, come on. After all, it’s […]

Quote Of The Day

“We congratulate the Landmarks Preservation Commission for promoting our nation’s core values and not letting bias get in the way of the rule of law. “The free exercise of religion is one of America’s most fundamental freedoms. For hundreds of years, our pluralism and tolerance have sustained and strengthened our nation. On 9/11, religious extremists […]

Wayne Allyn Root: Religious Freedom And Property Rights ? Not For Them Muslims !

I’ve written before about the questionable libertarian allegiances of Wayne Allyn Root, the LP’s 2008 Vice-President nominee and currently an At-Large member of the Libertarian National Committee. Now, Root is out with a blog post about the so-called “Ground Zero” Mosque that is anything but libertarian in it’s sentiments and it’s conclusions, and it should […]
