Westover must read--posted by Tony Garcia on 5/31/2006
As I mentioned earlier I am busy and thus blogging rates will be down this week. However I do want to thank all of the new readers who are visiting through the new KNSI website. In fact, Race to the Right has a new/another Show Prep page found here.
Anyway, I have been trying to keep the radar on around the blogosphere and found a must read posting by Craig Westover. The beginning of it:
Michael B. Brodkorb, Minnesota Democrats Exposed, has sent a letter to Republicans detailing his opposition to Sue Jeffers seeking the gubernatorial endorsement of the Republican Party because she is also endorsed by the Libertarian Party and declared herself a Libertarian. Part of his opposition is based on differences between selected positions of the Libertarian Party and the Republican Platform.At least SOMEONE is taking a thoughtful approach in examining Sue Jeffers run for Governor. The opposition should really think about the meaning behind the words in the article.
Indeed these differences may present delegates with a reason why Jeffers should not be the endorsed Republican candidate. That is a delegate decision. However, rather than treat the differences as little more than a label to denigrate a political opponent, they better serve as a departure point for examining both Libertarian and Republican Party principles and how those principles manifest themselves in policy.
