Some short thoughts

January 8, 2008

First, thanks to those who have sent in Libertarian Party organizing petitions, most notably Ms. Smith, Ms. Smith and Ms. Smith (who I do not think know each other). For those who have not, there is still time, and we still need your help. Please see recent blogs, for more information. And as tax season gets underway, please note that the Libertarian Pary will not qualify for state checkoff money this year. So, please consider sending the money to the party on your own -- every $2.00 (or $5 or $10) will help us stay on the ballot next year.

Today is the New Hampshire primary for the "major" parties. Any who are interested in politics have found the Iowa results, and the upcomong results from New Hampshire, interesting. It looks like previously favored candidates are not doing as well as expected. For me, that is a relief, as neither Mitt nor Hillary excite me much. In fact, I am particularly turned off by Mr. Romney, who seems utterly consumed by ambition, and prone to mean spiritedness, as he begins to get worried. While the LDS Church (of which I am a member, though not active) is scrupulously neutral itself, its flagship radio station has been campaigning for Mitt almost non-stop for the last few weeks. Mitt, who has a record of some social liberalism, is banking hard to the right and becoming an agent of intolerance. Help me and others who want to send a message that intolerance is not acceptable, to do so. Sign a petition, send a small contribution, pass this blog on to a friend, and find someone else to vote for in our Utah primary, coming soon.

I am headed tonight to a convention in Las Vegas. Will be back on Friday. Watch this space for more comments on the developing political situation then.
