• 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.

Dems Dilute Their Message

The political ads for local and national races have started running in New Hampshire, and I had no idea how many ‘George Bush clones’ were out there. It’s a line of attack that has shown some success, but is now being overused to the point of silliness. One rep that they’re trying to paint as a ‘Bush clone’ hasn’t even been in office the last two years. If this is the strategy throughout the country, hopefully the Dems keep it up. The argument had some power when just one or two people who appeared to be ‘Bush-like’, but now that everyone with an (R) after their name is being labeled the same way the argument fades to background noise.

The Obama campaign has decided to reach further with its comparisons saying that Senator McCain is tied to Rush Limbaugh. This is laughably false. During the primaries as it became evident that Senator McCain was likely to win Rush Limbaugh pitch a huge fit along with Ann Coulter about how horrible a McCain nomination would be. The Limbaugh show has never been friendly to Senator McCain and when asked about his show Senator McCain stated, “I don’t listen to him very much. There’s a certain trace of masochism in my family, but not that deep.”
