optional long-winded comments in the continuation
This blog was established on 11/20/2007 to provide a place to report
on (and discuss) governmental and political issues impacting the
citizens of Decatur, GA; the State of Georgia, the United States, and
Decatur (a suburb of Atlanta inside-the-perimeter, or ITP) is known for its liberal, leftist, progressive views (call them what you will). Most holding these views are not Decatur natives. But there remains a silent group of libertarians, who are for maximum individual and business freedoms and responsibilities and minimal governmental taxation and control. When this blogger was growing up in Decatur, they seemed to be in the majority. This blog is to express their views.
That's libertarian with a little "l" - the dictionary definition of
a libertarian - not Libertarian as a member of the Libertarian Party.
The Libertarian Party candidate cannot win the Presidency at this time,
so a vote for Bob Barr would be a wasted vote in the struggle between
right and left.
You are welcome -- indeed, encouraged -- to post your opinion (in agreement or disagreement) to any post. This blogger respects your opinion. Please respect his opinions and those of commenters.
There's only rule for comments: Use a civil tone. That means don't use profanity and don't make personal attacks. Any comments which violate this rule will either be edited or deleted.
There's no good reason why adults cannot discuss politics/policy without becoming antagonistic.
Don't accuse others of being biased or ignorant because they don't agree with you. Support your position with logical arguments and linked source data. If you make a convincing argument, based on facts, reasonable readers will agree with you.
