Kudos to Arkansas Libertarians - not that I’ll ever vote for any of ‘em, but still . . .

Kudos to Arkansas Libertarians - not that I’ll ever vote for any of ‘em, but still . . .

Except for a brief flirtation in the late 1980s (I can explain! I can explain!), there isn’t much I have in common with Libertarians of any stripe. As far as I am concerned, most of them would turn a blind eye to children working in the coal mines.

That being said, some credit must be paid to the Libertarians of Arkansas, who seem to have a record number of candidates seeking office in 2018. While another party - which I won’t name, but they share the color of Spock’s blood - is pretty much Missing in Action this year.

Every election is important, but as the years go by, elections seem to become more and more vital. Libertarians, Democrats and Republicans are dominating the marketplace of ideas this year, and, well, if you aren’t out there, and seem to spend most of your time talking to those of a like mind online, yeah, well, you’re about as effective as your friendly neighborhood anarchist.

Nobody benefits from that.

Quote of the Day

The most unrealistic thing I've ever read in comics is when some group of characters calls themselves the Brotherhood of Evil or the Masters of Evil. I don't believe any character believes their goals to be truly evil. - Len Wein
