Mixing Bourbon and Politics

This is where polite conversation goes horribly wrong.

Father of 3, political junky and raving lunatic. I take a deep-rooted libertarian philosophy and combine it with a penchant for Kentucky's finest.

“I don’t believe in government. I hate politics. I’m against it. And I hope that sometime this fall, we can destroy part of our government, and next year destroy even more of it. The less government, the happier I will be.”

A simple message for a profound idea.  Just two words.

OK, back to politics.

Scott Walker wins and public union employees break down into sobbing messes knowing that their time is limited.  The taxpayers held hostage by unions that should never have existed may finally be seeing a path to freedom from burdensome government.

Democracy died tonight!

Good.  I’m not a fan of idiotic, self-serving, lynch-mob politics to start with.

Just for fun today.

American voters: Allow the Libertarian Candidate to be part of the Presidential debates

Yup.  I’m sad.  I like Herman, but I’ll miss Uncle Neal.  Plus, now I’ll have to find someone else to be accused of parroting otherwise people will figure out I’m really an asshole.  Love ya Boortz.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is “needed” before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ “interests,” I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.

America’s millionaire population declined last year for the first time since the financial crisis, according to a new report.

The population of U.S. millionaire households (households with investible assets of $1 million or more) fell to 5,134,000 from 5,263,000 in 2011, according to The Boston Consulting Group’s Global Wealth study.

Total private wealth in North America fell by 0.9 percent, to $38 trillion.

Government is often a rich man’s job, a working man’s bane and an idiot’s answer to their problems.
