Libertarians Cause Their Own Demise in Alabama
On April 11th 2006 the Libertarian Party of Alabama went ahead and decided to show how irrelevant they were by choosing a criminal (misdemeanor drug possession) as their choice for Governor of Alabama. (Most of the time people choose to wait until after a person is elected to find out they're a criminal.) Loretta Nall is the best Libertarians could do in Alabama which really shows that they have no idea on how to govern or run a party. Besides her war on the "war on drugs" she has also stooped fairly low in order to receive donations for her campaign (o.k. it was a pretty funny idea, but way below how an elected official should be acting). Her views on the war are as left as I've seen, her blog partner Terry has called Bush the anti-Christ (I thought the left thought it was Rove), and she doesn't seem to want to protect our border either (Amnesty anyone? Well I guess criminals stick up for each other). Normally I would let this slide but she's been on a few news shows lately and my father wanted to everyone to know that she has large breasts. (see what happens when you let old people Google for boobies)
My real problem is that the Libertarians have a few good ideas, but they will never be electable if they keep giving us candidates like Loretta Nall. I like the Fair Tax. I like school vouchers. These are things that can be quite good for America. Loretta Nalls doesn't care anything about these things though. Her whole blog is nothing but drug legalization propaganda and never said anything else until selected to be a Libertarian candidate. Up until the Libertarians chose her, Loretta Nalls' whole platform was let's smoke dope and look at my boobs. In the end, even if I don't agree with a law I still abide by it. This is too adult for Loretta Nall though. And if the idea of abiding by the law regardless of whether you agree with it is foreign to her, then I doubt she has enough mental capacity to run my state.
I hope Neal Boortz does a piece on her tomorrow after her appearance on Fox and Friends. The only good thing to come of this is that she's progressive enough to steal votes from Lucy Baxter making both of them a losing campaign.
