"A Pox on Both Their Houses"

Back in 2004, a cousin, who is a liberal activist, sent a mass email snidely predicting Kerry would "cream" Bush. My reply:


... As a Libertarian, I am happy to be able to be able to say: The heck with the both of them!

The choice as to who will get to boss us around for the next four years isn't that interesting. Kerry's only objection to Bush is that *he,* Kerry, wants to be the one to engage in foreign adventurism, raise government spending, add to the bureaucracy, meddle in more fresh new areas of our lives, claim credit for everything good that happens including the sunsets, blame his opponents for everything bad that happens including hurricanes, and pass more laws and spend more money pretending to cure what ails us, while standing in the way of any progress that might interfer with one or the other special interests he owes his political life to.

A pox on both their houses.

(Since her message was to her list, I replied to her list, and was delighted to get a response from one: "I like the way you think!" -- It's always good to remember that when you're fighting the presumptuous pontificators, there may be others present who, though silent, are equally uncomfortable and wish someone would speak up.....)
