Blog: The spoiler who could deliver NC Senate seat to Kay Hagan

When I see a candidate who claims to be for small government but whose candidacy will hand a Senate seat to someone who will vote for Harry Reid as Majority Leader, I see red. It’s time for people to denounce Haugh as the spoiler and egotist he is.

The GOP doesn’t think it needs libertarians, so let them suck on that sword for a while.

This is a problem the Gentry GOP will continue to have, as long as the only people welcome in the GOP’s big tent are statist big government types.  Like the Gentry themselves.

Tools like Lifson can squawk all they want, but the “vote for the GOP candidate because it is the GOP candidate and not a Democrat” doesn’t cut it any longer.  Neither does “not quite as evil as the other guy.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

GOP to Libertarians: We Don’t Need You. Libertarians to GOP: Fine. Suck on This. — 3 Comments

  1. Sorry, Greedy Ol’ Party folkses, but, as much as Tarheel Territory folkses all agree that we really, really do need to get “shut of” the reliably-bad-for-all-concerned Kay Hagan…Thom Tillis is only sorta-kinda-somewhat, not-all-that-reliably better than Hagan on certain fairly important issues – in particular, some items which the Haugh campaign, et.al. keep pointing out, and which you “Elite” types keep side-stepping.

    Be forewarned: That may result in your “sidestepping” into something rather unpleasant – and rather deservedly so.

  2. I don’t even bother trying to explain it to these dumbass fools any more. After seeing what happened with GOP control over White House and Congress under Bush, how can they even *pretend* that the “Democrat is worse” argument will fly?

    After watching establishment GOP drones commit crimes to stay in office – after unethical sore loser actions on the part of Gentry GOPers such as Murkowski and Lugar – after accommodating the likes of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi for years while railing against Tea Partiers…

    They have stopped caring about the politics and made the GOP their sports team. They cheer when it wins and get down when it loses, just like the Yankees or Cowboys. Heck, it’s worse than that. At least when their team loses a long time, they start wanting to replace the coach.
