critical reading for the rude

ron paul and barack obama

You know that old adage, “hope for the best, prepare for the worst”?

That’s a major difference between the philosophies of Paul and Obama.  Paul hopes for the best, inspires us to rise to the challenge of living by our own laws.  And so does Obama.  But Obama has no blind hope in the ultimate benevolence of the Invisible Hand.

Obama is hoping, yes.  But he’s also preparing.

squirrel is out

It’s no accident that the GOP race is down to three men who are clear about who they are: McCain, Huckabee and, yes, Ron Paul.

B-bye. B-bye, now.
