Huckabee: The Anti-Libertarian

Former Arkansas Governor and GOP Presidential Candidate, Mike Huckabee recently raised the ire of libertarians by calling libertarianism “not an American message,” stating libertarianism was a “soulless type of economic conservatism” and a threat to Republicanism.

LP spokesman Andrew Davis responded with-

GOP Leadership Bucks McCain

This week while McCain was out on the campaign trail giving press conferences with green shaded backgrounds promoting his initiatives on global warming, the actual fight over climate change and what to do about it was going on in the Senate (McCain did not care to show up). A bill sponsored by Joe Lieberman - McCain’s Independent friend - that McCain himself adamantly supported was trashed by the GOP Leadership with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell calling it “A huge tax increase” and “the largest restructuring of the American economy since the New Deal” .

Bob Barr Welcomes Election Contest with Barack Obama and John McCain, Urges Weekly Debates

Atlanta, GA — Tonight the Democratic Party effectively finished its nomination process, choosing Sen. Barack Obama as its presidential candidate. Sen. Hillary Clinton fought long and well, helping spur a record voter turnout on the Democratic side. In most any other year she would have been her party’s standard-bearer, but she fell short against Sen. Obama, perhaps the Democrats’ most eloquent proponent of liberalism.

What Does Ron Have to Say About Bob?

At Nolan Chart, George Dance pulled together the various comments Congressman Ron Paul has made about his friend and colleague, Bob Barr. Here are a couple of excerpts-

On June 2, when Newsweek asked him, “What are your feelings toward [Libertarian nominee] Bob Barr?”, his response was: “We’re pretty friendly. We’re allies, he’s a good friend. He has called me a couple [of] times recently, so it’s very cordial.”

On May 30 Paul also praised Barr, to Jason Rosenbaum of the Columbia Daily Tribune: “He’ll be a good candidate. Some Libertarians are excited, and some are leery, but I think he can do a very good job.”

So long, Hillary… or not?

The AP is reporting that Hillary Rodham Clinton will admit this evening that Barrack Obama has enough delegates to secure the Democratic nomination…

…but Clinton campaign officials deny that she will be conceding the race, ending her hopes of becoming the first female President.

So, what will HRC have to say to us this evening after results from today’s primaries are apparent?

Harold Ickes, a top campaign official, said that Clinton would not drop out of the race. Asked on MSNBC what she would say if, after primaries in Montana and South Dakota, Obama had enough delegates to clinch the nomination, he replied, “She will say what she will say when she says it.”

Well, he cleared that up.

Time To Come Home

Congressman Barr is ready to make the commitment that Bush, Obama and McCain will not- the commitment to bring our troops home from Iraq as soon as safely possible. As reported at NewsBlaze.com-

“The next president should commit to a speedy and complete withdrawal from Iraq,” argues Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party candidate for president, “and tell the Iraqi people that the U.S. troops will be going home.”

Haters Not Welcome

The Barr Campaign let white supremacy group, Stormfront, know what they could do with their endorsement of the Congressman today. Campaign manager, Russ Verney, had this to say-

The Barr campaign is not going to be a vehicle for every fringe and hate group to promote itself. We do not want and will not accept the support of haters. Anyone with love in their heart for our country and for every resident of our country regardless of race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation is welcome with open arms.

Tell the haters I said don’t let the door hit you on the backside on your way out!
