I support Bush pragmatically, and not for money, but for constitutional
purposes. In a crucial election like this, where the next president will be
picking as many as three supreme court justices, I find that the integrity of
the Bill of Rights is the greatest issue I care about. After having Bush in
office, I think we'll find more people interested in libertarianism, and while
Browne does match my sentiments most closely, I find the threat posed by Gore to
be too great to be playing games making mere 'statements' with my vote.
If Gore wins and things start going to hell here, I will be moving to Alaska and
start working on the secession movement in existence up there.
