• Welcome Purple People

    To me Purple People are those of us who are neither Republican Red nor Democrat Blue; we find ourselves in between. The internet often represents those on the far left or the far right; this site is for those of us in the middle.

    Since there are a variety of non-conformists that consider themselves Independents, here's a clarification. The point of view of this blog is basically Realist/Libertarian light...

    -Pro Small Government, bureaucracies tend to be wasteful and inefficient.

    -Government should not be the morality police.

    -Less waste, lower taxes. Taxes are okay if spent wisely. Roads and schools need funding. Be smart with my money and I won't complain.

    -Government shouldn't babysit adults. Help kids and assist people who have serious problems, but stop trying to protect everyone from themselves.

    -Foreign policy should be conducted by people with brains and experience. Think, don't be reckless and don't be politically motivated. Remember that the U.S. is not the only country in the world.

    -Tone down the rhetoric and remember your manners. Play nicely and don't belittle people who disagree with you.

Kerry’s Response to Celeb Ad False

It’s interesting to see that hysteria surrounding the Celeb ad persist.  The latest to overshoot the mark is Senator Kerry.  He said on Meet The Press this Sunday that this ad was intended to, “Destroy his [Obama's] character.”  Then Senator Lieberman stated that the ad questioned whether Senator Obama was ready to lead and it challenged him on off-shore drilling, Senator Kerry responded by saying, “No it doesn’t mention ready to lead.  It doesn’t mention off shore drilling. It is trying to insinuate that his celebrity is all he has.”  Actually the ad leads with question, “Is he ready to lead?” and is shortly followed by the statement, “Barack Obama says no to off shore drilling.”  The final part of Senator Kerry’s statement has some truth to it.  The ad is about Senator Obama’s celebrity status.  The left has been spinning in circles trying to figure out a way that it is dirty pool or character assasination; what the ad asks is if celebrity status really what matters in selecting a president.
