Paranoia? Maybe Not

My Way News – AP presidential poll: Race tightens in final weeks

WASHINGTON (AP) – The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch.

The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain’s “Joe the plumber” analogy struck a chord.

If you believe, as I do, that much of mainstream election polling, especially that sponsored by partisans – such as large MSM outlets, political parties, and foundations with leftist axes to grind – is deliberately designed to produce an outcome desired by the sponsors – then one has to wonder why the A(nti-American) Press poll shows the race so tight.

Well, if all the polls showed Obama winning in a walk by 12-15% margins, many of his potential voters might choose to stay home on Election Day. And AP certainly wouldn’t find that outcome desirable, would it?

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.
