I’ve heard this before, and it’s wishful thinking.

The Last Democrat

The full title of the book (for those not inclined to click the link) is this —

The Last Democrat. Why Bill Clinton Will Be The Last Democrat Americans Elect President.

It seems Bill Bradford may have published that one a bit too soon.

What I’m hoping for is that the Obama Administration can be tied to the Bush Administration in its support for the USA-PATRIOT Act, the ongoing occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, the bevy of bailouts, among other things. Let George Bush be the albatross about Barack Obama’s neck.

Until Americans stop seeing issues as “Republicans vs Democrats” and start seeing things as “Imperial Washington DC vs The Rest of Us,” not much is going to change in favor of Liberty.

If you’re looking for a “libertarian Obama” who has sound principles AND can articulate them to a non-libertarian audience, I recommend that you check out Adam Kokesh, running for New Mexico’s 3rd District Congressional seat, currently warmed by the patronage system’s poster boy, Ben Ray Lujan.
