Meekness March 30, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.

I read somewhere many years ago that the socialists had an axiom about America: “First, we will de-moralize them, then we will defeat them.” They meant, of course, to undermine every rule and tradition that had to do with decency and morality. Observing the events in America in the past five years or so has shown me that this process is almost complete.
In the past 30 years or so, it has been possible to see America’s regression, and to observe the slide into the slime. First, we meekly let the left throw God out of virtually every aspect of our daily lives. Then, because they were so noisy and litigious about it, we meekly allowed them to prevail to the point where, today, we dare not exhibit or profess any belief in God the Father or Jesus Christ for fear of lawsuits, ostracism, loss of employment, and violence.
With God out of the picture, the next thing to go was morals in public. Young people began to exhibit more and more skin as fashions changed. In the “olden days,” if it was a part of the anatomy that needed to be covered by a bathing suit, it was not to be exposed to public view. Soon, crop-tops, short-shorts, fishnet, Victoria’s Secret pushup bras, sex toys, and and candy-flavored lubricants took the place of modesty. Playboy and Hustler took to the courts to demand that they be allowed to be displayed next to Field and Stream and Good Housekeeping. Before long, even small children were being sexualized. Schools were forced by federal rules to teach only government-approved curricula, and practical sexuality was taught in classrooms as low as second grade. Clothing manufacturers delighted in turning four- and five-year-olds into sex objects, and soon, baby beauty contests sprang up all over the country, and we meekly went along with it.
After the de-moralization was well under way, the revisionist histories picked up steam. “Green” was the new law of the land. Curly light bulbs that gave off a sickly green light and were environmental hazards themselves were mandated, along with unflushable toilets with tiny tanks, “smart” meters on our electricity, and recycling bins became the order of the day. Legislatures across the country meekly went along with this and forced citizens to comply with foolish environmental laws for the sake of “saving the environment,” and environmentalists and other assorted ignormauses worshipped the earth as “Gaia.” God’s removal from the minds and hearts of the people was virtually complete.
Old, reliable history, civics, and science textbooks were discarded for newspeak tomes moaning about the evils of AGW (man-caused global warming) and losing the ozone layer; demanding that Americans comply with environmental “laws” put into place to force American businesses to subsidize the undermining of free markets and capitalism all around the world. Population control and abortion on demand were emphasized from the environmental point of view, and became a virtual sacrament to the environmentalists, and we remained meek.
Newscasters took up the call, and trumpeted global warming in every way, shape, and manner possible, and blamed it all on big oil, and control of the food supply soon followed, with half the annual harvest of corn being diverted into spurious “ethanol” projects, while the world began to starve. And we meekly went along with it.
Next, immigration laws were ignored, axed, and turned on their heads. Sovereign national borders were allowed to deteriorate, and churches (even whole cities) meekly became sanctuaries for the hordes of illegal aliens that poured into America. Among these illegals were many who did not have America’s best interests at heart, and were coming to do her harm. Nobody paid attention to the complaints of the few Americans still awake.
Driving God from the public discourse, from the formulation and execution of laws, from courthouses and even churches, has done this to America. We have done this to ourselves. We have forced God from our lives because we have turned to sin, and we do not wish to have His holiness as a conviction of our choices. We are spiritual criminals and fugitives now, fleeing from His laws and trying to find places and situations where, we hope fruitlessly, He cannot follow. We have encouraged inferior philosophies to usurp God’s place in America, and we have meekly backed down when accused, instead of firmly standing our ground and speaking up for America.
Judging by the deterioration in American life in the last three or four years, especially, it’s pretty obvious that a willingness to let ourselves be bamboozled and manipulated, a loss of moral rectitude, spiritual grounding, patriotism, and fiscal responsibility, are the consequences of our determined plan to see God and holiness removed from all aspects of our daily life. We, in 2011, are reaping what we have sown since 1965, and our posterity will be paying the price for our stupidity and sin for generations to come. We have brought this national calamity upon ourselves, and we are the ones responsible for finding ourselves wallowing and floundering in a life of steadily declining industry, prosperity, morality, and joy.
There is only one real remedy for this disaster. America MUST turn back to God. Americans must go back to church, and keep going back. They need to start tithing to the work of whatever church they attend. When they pray, they should mean every word. They must learn to trust God to give His best. (He has a track record on this…) They must teach children to love Him, with Him as the head of their households, and refuse the tawdry lures of this bent and twisted culture. It’s time to put God and decency back into all aspects of public life and display. We must demand that the entertainment industry restore decency and upright behavior in movies and television.
This is THE ONLY WAY we can turn it around. A spiritual, supernatural solution is now the only thing that will work to save this republic.
We Old Patriots March 29, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.

The Soviets took parents out of homes to tend the fields during the “Revolution,” while the state ravaged the economies and turned magnificent churches into gymnasiums and truck and tank repair garages and tried to kill off all the anti-soviet priests and bishops. Some children wound up in state-run nurseries, but most were left at home with Babushka (grandmother). This was a free solution to a problem the politburo hadn’t figured out how to solve otherwise. But, there was only one problem, one they didn’t discover until it was too late:
The Babushky were the repositories of the Faith. While the parents were slaving for the state, the children were learning about God and Jesus and the saints from their old grandmothers, and when the wall came down and the restrictions on worship were removed, the generation everyone thought would have had their minds washed of decadent old-fasioned, non-revolutionary thought were the ones who carried the faith and taught it to THEIR children.
I went to a CPG (Conservative Patriots Group) meeting last night to see Pam Geller’s documentary movie about the Ground Zero mosque and to learn more about the vicious evil proposed against America. When I looked around, I saw that the audience, around 60 of us, were roughly all the same age: Around 65, give or take a few years. All hoary heads. No young people. Not one. The youngest person there was probably in her fifties.
Is this just an Alaskan phenomenon? Veterans in Alaska comprise a larger percentage of the population than any other state in the union. I realize that a lot of our young patriots are actively serving, and I bless them and thank them from the bottom of my heart for their sacrifice of time, family, and sometimes, life. They are the finest, and America’s great hope.
But there are other young people who are patriotic and conservative in their political leanings. Unfortunately, none of them were there to see that horrifying movie. I pray that they will find a way to see it, to learn its message and be moved to stand against the creeping sharia that is oozing under our gates. An anti-sharia law is up for passage here in Alaska that would forbid Alaskan courts to refer to any other non-American law. It will be moved out of committee on March 30. Please PRAY that we can pass this law, not just here in Alaska, but in every state in the union.
We oldsters can stand in the gap for a while, but we’ll be needing reinforcements, and they had better be strong, dedicated, and educated about this filthy evil that threatens everything America stands for.
Good Friday Quake-1964–Update March 27, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.

Today is the forty-seventh anniversary of the great Good Friday earthquake here in Alaska. At the time, they said it was was an 8.4 magnitude on the Richter Scale, but it has since been revised upwards to 9.2, and shook the area for nearly seven minutes. It generated a monstrous tsunami, and killed over 100 people in Alaska alone.
UPDATE 3/27/2012: This is the 48th anniversary of the Great Alaska Quake. It’s hard to believe how many years have passed since that cataclysmic day. Survivors still react with terror and anxiety when they feel another shake. One of these in a lifetime is more than sufficient. May we never have another such, please God.
Living Water March 27, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
13 Jesus said to her, “Every one who drinks of this water will thirst again,
14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst;
the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Have you ever wondered why we just can’t seem to stop with the sinning? (I am assuming here that we all understand the term “sin” and what it means to any of us) Doesn’t it often seem as if the harder we try, the harder it is to overcome?
During Lent, we are asked to examine the sin in our lives, and to take the necessary steps to overcome it and put it away from us forever. Obviously, we all know that this is much easier said than done. One ordinarily doesn’t have the ability to simply STOP sinning, never to take it up again. And, although it might happen, most of us can’t conceive of it happening to US.
An odd paradox about sin in our lives is that the closer we are able to draw to God, the more aware of our failures and sinfulness we become. This Grace is one of our greatest allies in the eternal battle, and helps us to stay on track. The proximity of Grace, by its power to contrast, shows up the areas in our lives and our walk with the Lord where we fall short. Like a bright light shown into a dark and dirty room, Grace shows us where we need persistence and prayer.
God gives us numerous opportunities to choose Him every day. When we choose against Him, we subside back into that bog of sinful behavior, then wonder why we can’t prevail. Our lives become at cross-purposes with His, and we stumble around in a sad and clinging mass of failure and worry. One could call this condition a “punishment,” since it is a consequence of our choices.
Some people reach a state of such lost defeat that they no longer are aware of sin in their lives, can’t recognize it for what it is, and don’t feel inclined to do anything about it. For them, and for all of us, the first step in overcoming sin in our lives is to become aware of its presence there, a moment of great Grace.
We struggle courageously to untie those cords of bondage. We pray, make personal sacrifices for His sake, and press in to His Heart. But, even when we are struggling, even when we continue with the battle although it seems to everyone else that we are losing ground, we are gaining Grace. What might look to others as “misery,” might, to faithful souls, be great signs of God’s Grace working in our lives. “Whom the Lord loveth, He chastiseth…” it says in Holy Scripture. Struggle in life doesn’t necessarily mean the presence of sin, any more than perceived “happiness” is a sign of a blessed life.
Some people have learned to embrace their suffering for His sake, and they know that, far from being punishment, their problems are great opportunities to press closer and drink more deeply from His Well of Living Water. (Serendipitously, this was written this morning before I left for Mass, where all the readings dealt with God’s provision of Living Water for His people.)
Repeatedly choosing “not God” can lead to continued sinfulness. This is a case of sin basically being its own punishment. Being imprisoned in a dungeon of sin because our choices are not made with our salvation in mind is the consequence of these “not God” choices. Being in a state of sinful consequences is a case of a soul dying of thirst.
Every choice we make for God, on the other hand, provides us with a sip from that Living Water, the Water that strengthens, purifies, refreshes, and equips us for further battle.
If Apocalypse Comes… March 25, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.

I had an interesting experience this week that made me realize more than once what we could be up against in the face of certain types of outages, shortages, and/or destruction.
The first thing that happened was that my internet/dtv modem croaked for good and left me without my trusty and beloved computer, my almost-as-cherished new 42″ flat-screen, and any movies I might want to download from Netflix. In spite of desperate CPR and first aid, the pitiful box was defunct. Dead. Cocked up its electronic toes. Stuck its cyber spoon in the wall. A goner for sure. This is not the knowledge one likes to understand when thinking of the ubiquity of the internet. Had I, old Mrs. Practical, become an internet ADDICT?? Well, close. But not quite.
I still had my Kindle, I realized, and would be happy reading for the duration. Not just the kindle, but all my books, handy and readable. I was set.
But then, mid-afternoon of the following day, a car hit one of the power poles in the neighborhood, and electric service was turned off for several hours. This time, I not only had no computer, tv, or lights, but I had no home telephone and no water. I was cut adrift. As the day wore on, it became harder and harder to see the screen of the Kindle, which cannot be read in the dark. Since the same type of problem held for my paper books, I knew I was going to have to “go pioneer.”
It’s not just difficult, but virtually impossible to read by candle light, especially for old eyes. And, to top it off, I still had no water, since the community pump is run on electricity. I had water to drink, but nothing for cooking, washing, or flushing.
Finally, by 7 p.m. the electricity was restored, but it didn’t bring back my defunct modem. And, it didn’t bring back the water. Well, I reasoned, at least I had lights and heat. And I could still cook on my gas stove. The water people were notified, the pump was reset, and soon all was well under my roof once again.
Today brought the cavalry, and my internet connection was restored with the installation of a shiny new modem, so my life is back to what I laughingly refer to as “normal.”
But all during the adventure, I reflected on just what could be done in the event that such losses as electricity and water, and to a lesser extent, the internet, could mean to us. I live alone, about four miles from town, and I don’t own a vehicle. That’s problem 1. But I don’t worry about that, since I have been “adopted” (their term) by a couple of lovely, generous friends who frequently include me on trips to the store.
Lack of electricity is problem 2. So much of today’s life is plugged in that we have lost track of the things we’d have to do without if our electricity failed for whatever reason. Our plugged-in lives are so dependent on it that without it we can’t even run our cellphones, let alone buy refrigerated foods and prepare them, see what we are doing after dusk, keep in contact with loved ones, and the list goes on. I took inventory to make sure I had the means, however meager, to light my world, and was relieved that I had not only flashlights, but candles and oil lamps. So I was “sitting pretty” in the light department.
Loss of water and the means to replenish it is problem 3, and it is extremely important. We don’t just need it for bathing and laundry, we need it for sanitation, as well. If you have water to drink but none to flush with, you will need to devise or purchase a way to dispose of wastes. Much as we hate to have to do it, we can keep clean with limited water. The loss of long, luxuriant showers is indeed a loss, but we can still stay presentable. Cooking without water is a challenge. Keeping sufficient water around for these kinds of things is very important. This is a lesson I learned the hard way at Christmas time when my water heater froze and had to be replaced. I was without water for three days, over Christmas, and without HOT water for a month. It can be done, but it’s not fun.
With all this, I realized while I waited for the power to come back on, just how blessed we are to live in a society that helps us to have easy and inexpensive access to these necessities.
Planning ahead and making even token preparations is better than not doing anything. Buy a case or two of bottled water, and fill a 5-gallon pail with water for flushing. Make sure you have propane for your grill so you can cook, if you have only an electric range. Cell phones are a blessing in times like this, so make sure yours is always charged while you still have electricity, and use it sparingly in the event of an outage. Stock up on foods that don’t need much in the way of preparation, like canned foods and crackers.
I learned the hard way how important it is to keep things on hand that can fill in for the basics in the event of disruption. These are only stopgap, temporary fixes, though. It’s not difficult to buy an extra can or two of tuna, chili, or green peas on each trip to the grocery store. It’s easy to cobble together a little basic “survival kitchen” for times when the power goes out.
I have learned not to become too dependent on my conveniences. Every time I have a situation like this, it is a little easier because of what I learned with the last experience. And, if Apocalypse comes, I should be ready, considering what I just went through…
Fearsome Sarah March 22, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
You don’t necessarily have to be hoping Sarah Palin runs for President to understand that a lot of the hype is not of her own doing, but strictly a product of the people around her, pro or con.
Those who support her enjoy reading about her but don’t generate the kind of twisted “logic” that saturates the news items about her generated by the left. They ramp up their own frenzy over her every word or gesture, and make it clear everywhere that she hasn’t the chance of a snowball in hell of ever being more than just a cute housewife from Wasilla who loves her political hobby. The funny part of all this is that it is basically how she views herself. She doesn’t see herself as a “mover and shaker,” but enjoys tweaking the leftist media and putting words and phrases out there for them to jump on and decry while she goes about her business.
The leftist media complain about how she is always in the news, that every move, word, or tweet is picked up and blared to the world. But they forget their own part in all of this. It’s interesting to see BDS transformed into PDS by the mainstream talking heads and pundits, but, there it is, in so many words, in black and white, almost as if they can’t help themselves. They see her name and pounce. It’s a conditioned reflex.
Most people read an article about Sarah Palin, and it takes no more than a quick skim to tell them whether or not the article will be favorable to her, and they make their decision then to continue reading or not. The television shows, apparently, have a bit more of a project before them for hiding their personal feelings, or presenting a neutral and interesting segment.
I’ve wondered on occasion whether we should tell them we notice that they are generating all of their own hype over Sarah Palin. Then I think, “Naw…I think I’ll just let them keep poking themselves in the eye…”
In the meantime, most people in the country will form their own opinions, while the leftist media continues to run in circles over every move from Sarah’s neck of the woods. If she has a media team, it’s a very small one. I see instead her tweets and facebook posts, an occasional public speaking engagement, two books and a television show, and a spokesman. Here in Alaska, the only news we have about Sarah Palin is from Outside (or from democrat operatives in Anchorage). Alaskans are not obsessed with her, and are satisfied to let her go about her life. Interesting..
Power Trip March 18, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.

What do the lefties want more than anything in the whole world? I know; Besides the whole world, I mean…
Yep, they want all the power. The only thing standing between us and their cheers of triumph is the Constitution of the United States, and they are working on disabling that every day, even as we speak.
But, power is their goal. As high-level politicians, they had most of the power until the November 2010 elections, and it gave them some rather destructive delusions. They got used to having people suck up and bow down. They got even more used to flinging our money around without regard for its source or its continued availiability. Not having had to earn or pay that money into taxes left them blind to its value, and they squandered it willy-nilly without so much as a “by your leave.” They could make no intellectual connection between jobs and taxes collected, and destroyed people’s ability to earn by raising taxes and making ever-more demands on their employers, until all the jobs dried up and the companies went overseas.
Now that the Right has regained some of its influence, the leftists are beside themselves. Their only goal from now on will be wresting that power back from the Right and sequestering it to themselves. (The interesting thing is that even when they had all three branches of government, the left couldn’t accomplish anything but disaster without the help of some GOP votes. But they have an ace they like to play in situations like that: They just blame it all on George Bush and the Right.)
The power-mad already have power over virtually all the money in the country, even including the money our grandchildren haven’t yet had a chance to earn. Now, they are working on our ability to move about the country. TSA sees to it that traveling by air is as disagreeable an experience as they can possibly make it. Then, the feds shut down 95% of American oil production and refinement industries in order to make driving as expensive and negative as possible, so we have to pay more for the gasoline it takes to get us to work to earn the money to give to the government to pass more laws to make it illegal for us to move around at will. They try to force us into ugly, expensive, miniscule cars to add insult to the injury. By this, they hope to move us all into mass transit and away from individual transportation.
Oh, and keeping warm in the winter? That is for THEM, not us, as you no doubt have already perceived, with the vicious weekly blizzards that we have experienced all winter long, as you watched your electricity and heat bills go through the roof, and they hunkered down on oil production and refinement. (Did you know there hasn’t been a new refinery built in the United States since the early Seventies??)
They have had, until the advent of AM talk radio and conservative blogdom, a lock on all information and news sent around the country. Because they see themselves losing this power over the message, they are desperately trying to cobble up new laws to give them power over our communications in an effort to get it back. If they can’t control the message itself, they will try to control the methods by which that message is distributed.
Food and water can no longer be considered a right for most of us. New laws make it more and more difficult to feed our families outside the supervision of the government. For the most part, when Americans haven’t been able to afford to buy what foods and nutrition they needed to survive, they were able to “grow their own.” But now, the powers that be are busily trying to figure out ways to remove this ability from us average folks. They tell us “this” will kill us, “that” will make us ill, and “the other” is no longer considered a viable source of nutrition. (The funny thing is that ongoing research has begun to reveal every one of these scare tactics is bogus. I can like that.) If they can control the food in this once-bountiful country, obviously, they can control the people. Shutting down the means of production of food that once fed the whole world, by sequestering, earmarking, penalizing, and subsidizing, has made inroads into American food production that were absolutely unthinkable just a few years ago. Food stamps and welfare payments, meals at school, WIC, etc., are all in place to remove as much control of nutrition from the hands of the people as is possible.
Forget finance. It’s already a lost cause. Nothing can be done but to get out that big suede eraser, wipe the entire chalkboard clean and start over. Weapons? The only reason the left hasn’t already gone all the way with us is because they fear the Second Amendment, and don’t know who owns what weapons. “An armed society is a polite society,” says Robert L. Heinlein. But, the left is working on that, too.
Once upon a time, there was responsibility and wisdom in government in America. But Americans let themselves, like Old-Testament Esau, be bought for a “mess of pottage,” and we gave up OUR power and the ability to govern ourselves for some food stamps and third-party health insurance, so the question remains: Will we have the will and the desire to take that power back and begin once more to govern ourselves?
What’s Inside A RINO? March 17, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
add a comment
If you are a Rush Limbaugh listener, you will remember this. The funniest thing about this lame conversation is that it actually took place, and nobody thought there was anything wrong with it at the time. Well, Rush did, that’s why I can provide you with this link. (You will have to read the transcript, since the audio is password protected, unfortunately.)
I’d like to ask the same questions of those presumed conservatives on the East coast. Who IS a RINO? Does anybody really know what RINOs stand for? Who are their heroes?
All I know for sure about them is that they don’t want to hear a single word from or about any really Conservative American (and, by really Conservative, I mean, pro-Constitution, small-government, pro-life, pro-Israel, low-taxes). Patriotism appears to be distateful to beltway elites, for some reason.
We keep hearing about the “conservative elites.” You know who they are: Establishment RINOs and so-called “conservative” pundits who frequent the Sunday morning roundtable talk-shows, and who are always quick to complain about non-establishment conservatives; as if there were two entirely different meanings of the word. They all look down their noses at Rush Limbaugh, and they are not just condescending about Sarah Palin, but downright vicious. Just what do they think “Conservative” means? I’d like to learn just where they stand on the things that us little “pay, pray, and obey” guys think are most important for preserving America as she was founded: You know, stuff like patriotism, support for our military, education in real American History and Civics, morality, religious faith, etc. Stuff like that.
We know they are the GOP establishment. We know they are the complacent, go-along-to-get-along Republicans who keep running for office, occasionally getting elected, and sometimes later subsiding back into their complacent, go-along-to-get-along, etc. beltway pies; You know — people like Mitt Romney, the GHW Bushes, David Brooks, and Olympia Snowe; the ones who are indistinguishable from their friends on the left.
But, what do they really stand for? For the life of me, I’ve never heard one tell us a thing about what’s in their hearts, what their real politics are, or even what they wish for America. The only emphatic expressions we ever hear from them are their snide comments about Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann. They want the status quo, apparently. Somehow, it doesn’t seem to bother them that America is losing everything that ever made her great. I never see them attending TEA party rallies, speaking out for “average” Americans, or lending vocal and visible support to pro-Constitution movements.
Come, on, RINOs, fess up! Tell us what’s inside you, and what makes you tick. Tell us hicks and hayseeds out here in Flyoverville who you really support. Confess that you voted for the current resident. You don’t need to hide it, even though we know some of you did, and are now ashamed of the fact. Tell us what’s in your blue-blooded, high-nosed hearts, and then explain to us why you still bother to call yourselves “Republicans,” because, to us out here, you all look exactly like democrats.
The Breakup March 15, 2011Posted by lizp4 in Uncategorized.
You have to hand it to Rush Limbaugh. For years, he has, through the sheer force of his wisdom and clear rhetoric, managed to hold the conservative Republicans together, and he has virtually single-handedly prevented any attempts at a third party of a conservative persuasion. He has wisely and repeatedly pointed out that building a third party would siphon off support for the only OTHER party that can successfully fend off the democrats and their deliberate destruction of the laws of this country. But the time may have arrived when that wise rhetoric isn’t going to work any longer.
The TEA party is responsible for the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives this year, and the Republican party should know that as well as we do. TEA party people are the ones who turned out and pulled levers across the country to hand the democrats the worst defeat they’ve suffered since Ronald Reagan was re-elected.
But the reins of restraint on the TEA party are stretching thin. The Republicans currently in Washington seem to be having the jitters about allowing the government to shut down for a while until a budget can be passed. This is sending a signal to the electorate of a majority that is a collection of weak, sniveling simps, wimps, and girlymen. This does NOT describe the Republicans we thought we had elected, and we are going to have to start planning a way to not just stimulate these weak and pathetic representatives, but refuse to accept the lazy thinking and weak reasoning they are projecting.
If the Republicans in Congress are NOT the weak and sniveling weenies they are projecting themselves to be, they had better start proving it to the electorate. We are not in a mood for compromise at this time, and if the Republican party refuses to stand up and defend the things we hold dear, we will drop them like hot potatoes.
In spite of Rush’s projected desire not to see a third party form, I believe that if he thought there was a good chance for its success and if it had sufficient numbers and influence to mount a legitimate challenge to the left, he would lend it his unqualified support. He’s not pro-Repblican, per se, as much as he is wisely choosing to wait for a real tidal wave of support across the country. At this time, that isn’t much of a possibility. But, the fact is this: With sufficient numbers, appropriate support, and enough momentum, a third (CONSERVATIVE) party would do very well, especially if someone like Rush were to lend his support, and most especially if the party was able to field a strong, galvanizing candidate. A lot of people who would otherwise have shifted their allegiance long ago have been waiting to hear the word from him that the time has come to make this move.
Getting a legitimate third party onto national ballots is difficult, but it can be done, and with the right support from the right people at the right time, it really could work. If the Repubicans in Washington don’t wake up and remember who sent them there, and WHY, it might actually be time to present a third alternative to the American voter. Libertarians and other fringe parties never do very well outside state elections, so that is not a real consideration. But there are independent voters like myself who are willing to make a move, and only waiting for the appearance of a platform that reflects our beliefs.
