Happy Independence Day — From a 21st Century Tory

From: Michelle Lujan Grisham via bounce.bluestatedigital.com

Subject: Happy Independence Day!

What’s amusing about this is that Michelle Lujan Grisham is the 21st century New Mexico equivalent of an 18th century British Tory.

A little histoy lesson here — the Tories were the British political party who were opposed to the American Revolution of 1776. They were whom the Declaration of Independence was a series of complaints against when it was signed at Independence Hall (then the Pennsylvania State House).

In short, they were the Big Government party of the United Kingdom of the 1760s and 1770s.

Doesn’t Big Government neatly summarize the political career of Michelle Lujan Grisham? When has she EVER supported making government smaller, less intrusive, less expensive? Not much that we here in New Mexico have seen.

Grisham has little to no respect for the individual right to own and carry weapons, she’s always in favor of expanding the welfare state, and she signs off on Democrat-sponsored corporate welfare while complaining about corporations being under-regulated. If you’re a farmer or rancher, she doesn’t seem to care if your land is seized out from under you by the BLM, Forest Service, Fish & Wildlife, EPA, or whoever else, just so long as it fits the current Democrat narrative.

What’s also amusing is that today’s British Tories (the Conservative Party, by their own name) are the “across-the-pond” equivalent of America’s Republicans — they advertise themselves as moderate libertarians during the campaign season, then govern as moderate Democrats (Labour Party for the UK Conservatives).

If you want the real deal, then go with actual, brand-name Libertarians here in the States. For the UK, I would suggest either the Libertarian Party UK [LPUK] or UK Independence Party [UKIP]

Dan East, GOP Gun-Grabber

Dan East is a Republican running against Democrat Ben Ray Lujan for New Mexico’s 3rd U.S. Congressional District seat. Recently, he was interviewed by the CNM Chronicle concerning his candidacy. His campaign website is daneast4congress.com. The interview was conducted by Chronicle editor and reporter C.S. Tillman. The interview took up a full page of the 22-28 July 2008 edition, with a full-color picture of East taking up the top half of the page.

And who says that the media gives Republicans the short end of the stick?

Question number seven of the interview –

I strongly believe in our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. It is fundamental that people have an inalienable right to protect themselves and their families. That being said, I do not believe that armor piercing bullets, .50 caliber guns, or semi-automatics are necessary.

The Issues page on his site says this concerning the Second –

2nd Amendment

Protect the rights of Americans
Enforce existing laws and make sure violent criminals are punished to the full extent of these laws

Considering what East says in the rest of the interview, he’s a typical hoplophobic bigot, and a neocon artist in the same style as Comrade George XLIII and Comrade Senator McClown. He wants corporate welfare, and to define marriage while offering (shoddy) lip service towards equal rights. He wants to be seen by the NRA types as the “lesser of two evils,” while pandering to the “leftists” in Santa Fe and Taos at the same time.

Of course, this is not new for northern New Mexico. Back in 1994, the GOP ran Santa Fe venture capitalist F. Gregg Bemis as their candidate for this spot in the Congress. Bemis was worse than then-incumbent Bill Richardson, getting an “F” from Gun Owners of America, in comparison to Richardson’s “C.”

As for the “lesser of two evils” argument – screw that – I’m endorsing Cthulhu for this office.
