• 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.

The Bracelet Debate Update

ABC News looked into the controversy about whether the family of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek approved of Senator Obama wearing a bracelet with his name on it and whether they approved of him using his name publicly in the article Bracelet Wars. It appears there was some miscommunication between Jopek’s parents who are divorced, but that his mother is happy with Senator Obama mentioning her son’s name during the debate even though she had previously emailed the campaign and asked them not to talk about her son publicly. Her intent in giving Senator Obama the bracelet was so that he would know her son’s name, which brings us back to the original problem. Senator Obama had to read Sergeant Jopek’s name off his bracelet.

  1. We can agree or disagree on if Obama forgot the name of the soldier, which in my eyes he did not. To me it looked like he was trying to get the right words out.

    But anyways the thing I would like to know is………….

    Why isn’t McCain wearing a flag pin? Especailly during a Presidential debate.

    It’s kind of funny that so many CONSERVATIVE bloggers made a fuss over the time when Obama didn’t wear a flag pin also saying that he is unpatriotic, but now there is no mention of McCain not wearing a flag pin and at especially a time when he should wearing one.

    Also has McCain ever wore a flag pin since he was nominated as the Republican Presidential Candidate?

    I think not.



  2. Heavenly - none of your comments ever make sense.

    Was the article about Obama not knowing the soldiers name? Why are you bringing up an American Flag pin on Senator McCain, I think he has proven his countries loyalties, if you hadn’t already known.

    You boy is going down.

    PUMA Pounce!

    McCain/Palin 2008!
