BOB BAR IS NOT THE ANSWER

I know there are some who are still worried about a John McCain presidency. I don’t have to go into the whole thing, we know it chapter and verse. Immigration, free trade and his history of animosity towards conservatives. Now some have been throwing around the name BOB BARR. Barr is the civil libertarian who left the GOP some years ago. He has announced his run for the presidency and I’m rather worried over how some of my fellow conservatives are, all of a sudden, getting on the Barr band-wagon.

Let me make this clear.

BOB BARR IS NOT THE ANSWER.

First of all, I would not be surprised if Bob Barr is a paid operative of rich liberals in the DNC and Howard Dean. Remember, the DNC and the .orgers have launched a mutli million dollar campaign to attack John McCain. Is Barr on the payroll? You’d also have to ask yourselves logically, do we need another Ross Perot type situation ala Clinton vs. Bush circa 1992? He could essentially turn out to be Ross Perot minus the money or the personality. He can’t raise money. He can’t win. Stop kidding yourselves. And back to my original point of him being a plant doesn’t sound too far off when you really think about it. I mean, what other perfect scenario would there be for liberals and Obama? Obama gets the nomination and now McCain will have to debate a Johnny come lately? It would be perfect for them.

What do you know about Barr?

Did you know that Bob Barr has just struck a deal with the ACLU? That’s right, the same ACLU that represents CAIR and organizations like NAMBLA. Bob Barr has formed an alliance with the ACLU since they are on the same page on privacy issues. He is against the national ID, “know your customer” banking systems and the citizen TIPS program.

But let’s back track a moment. Bob Barr has been lauded by conservatives as being anti gay rights correct? Well then why is he forming an alliance with the ACLU who not only condones but represents grown men who think it’s normal to bed young boys?

Confused? I sure as fuck am.

Did you know that Bob Barr teamed up with AL GORE for a policy address, sponsored by the MoveOn.org and libertarian Liberty Coalition? Barr is an outspoken critic of Bush on issues of national security. Here’s what MoveOn.org said about that event: “The speech will specifically point to domestic wiretapping and torture as examples of the administration's efforts to extend executive power beyond Congressional direction and judicial review,” according to a http://MoveOn.org press release. “The extent of bipartisan concern over these issues is highlighted by former Republican Rep. Bob Barr's introduction of the Vice President and by the organizations cosponsoring the speech.”

As a Republican, he was an advocate of the WAR ON DRUGS. He led a prohibition against medical marijuana. But now he’s a Libertarian. Isn’t the backbone of libertarianism that the government have little or no involvement in individual liberties? He led the way for government to take away individual rights for a cancer patient to smoke medical pot and now he’s a libertarian who believes in an ideology that would go against that.

I’m still confused.

Did you know that Bob Barr was married three times? His second marriage to then wife Gail ended in divorce and believed to be due to HIS infidelities. When asked about it in 1999, he refused to answer. Another rumor that has surfaced about Barr over the years has been if he is of mixed race. I have no problem with that. But could we at least know? Or do we have to play the guessing game like we do with Obama? I’d say it isn’t true but try doing a simple search into his background. Try finding something about him and his early life. Just go to Wikipedia. It should be on there, right? Not.

Conservatives, you’re going to do it again. This past summer, we vetted and cross referenced all of our candidates and beat the piss out of each other for the true conservative. We ended up with John McCain. I agree he’s not perfect. But he’s better than Obama, Hillary or the other phantom candidate Bob Barr.

So is this going to happen again this summer go around? Are pro McCainers going to go round robin with the Barr Bandwagon as to who’s more conservative? Are some of you going to get behind someone who doesn’t have a Chinamen’s chance of winning?

I won’t have it. I won’t participate. I know who my candidate is and my energies will be focusing on the conservative who McCain should pick for Vice Presidential candidate.

For me, that man is BOBBY JINDAL, governor of Louisana. This Punjabi Indian turned Catholic is conservative as the day is long. With McCain at 72, this is the guy who I would want to take over if the old codger, God forbid, kicked the bucket.

Here’s a little more about Jindal.
