Wanted to share this with supedujour, because it ties in with something we've been talking about today.

The Democratic Party Adds Nothing to the National Debate

I think this puts it about as well as I've seen.

Unfortunately too true, and very well-stated.

I could almost be a Libertarian if they were more like Neal Boortz. Most of the time Libertarians are just a little too weak on defense and sound just a few revolutions shy of anarchists. I like the concept, but they just never sound like anyone I could vote for.

That's the thing that killed my support for them in the last election. The Libertarians have, unfortunately, been taken over by the peace freaks. I fully understand the commitment not to try to gain anything by force or fraud, but I'm also a believer that one of the few legitimate functions of government is defense, and sometimes defending yourself involves kicking someone's ass. And if anyone had an ass-kicking coming to him, it was Saddam Hussein.

I'm with the author of the article: I have serious problems with the direction the Republicans have taken in some cases, but I don't see that the Democrats or the left in general has offered anything vaguely resembling a better alternative. They seem hell-bent on going back to the glory days of the Depression. They are less of an alternative at this point than the Libertarians. And it pains me to say that, but it's true.
