“One of the criticisms I make is to what I refer to as more of a Libertarianish right.
They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues.
That is not how traditional conservatives view the world. There is no such society that I’m aware of, where we’ve had radical individualism and that it succeeds as a culture.”
My uncle’s interventionist policies, both domestic and foreign, stem from his irrational fear of freedom not working.
It is not the government’s job to dictate to individuals how they must live. The Constitution was designed to protect individual liberty. My Uncle Rick cannot fathom a society in which people cooperate and work with each other freely.

Now I don't think I have a place in commenting about American politics as I am not a U.S. citizen. I will however simply observe that the U.S. has long been admired for these qualities (individualism, freedom, liberty, etc.) and that a conformist, highly taxed, society is what many of us SURELY strive for (cough cough)
Seems like this guy has his head stuck up his *** and is grasping at straws.
On to the conforming people. Big gov't knows whats best.
The problem is even if people legitimately vote for a grassroots leader, the MSM and corporate media will do everything in their power to steer public opinion as we have been witnessing with your Republican race.
"Isn't that the ultimate homeland security, standing up and defending marriage?"
"The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical"

Dude, that's the sheer insanity of American politics. The anti-establishments get slandered non-stop if they so much as breathe in the wrong direction, but the corrupt, pro-status quo fool like Santorum get very little negative coverage.
Nevermind that he was found to be one of the most corrupt members of Congress, that doesn't deserve any media coverage, Ron Paul had some racist newsletters written under his name! He's also unelectable, says the TV.
