Larry Elder -- My Pick for President

Looking over the front runners for the Republican and Democratic nomination for president, there doesn't seem to be ANYONE who's solidly pro second amendment. Heck, there doesn't even seem to be a conservative in the lot!

As I looked for someone who is a good communicator, well educated, street-smart, and not afraid to stand up and state his position without a lot of "weasel-words" (no offence intended towards Cowboy Blob's ferrets), one person comes to mind, the talk radio host Larry Elder. Now before you laugh this off, go to Larry's website and have a look around. Spend a few minutes seeing what he has to say. In particular, have a look at his Ten Point Plan. Then write down the ten main points expressed by any of the other candidates. (Can you find ten? Didn't think so! )

Now go down the lists one item at a time and see how many match up with your personal politics. I'm not exactly "eye-to-eye" with him on everything, but he's way closer than anyone else.

To have any chance at all, he would have to run as a Republican, but we have "Conservative" Republicans, "Moderate" Republicans, and even "RINO's", so I have no problem at all with a Libertarian Republican. Actually, I kinda like the sound of it!

In today's politics, Thomas Jefferson would be a Libertarian Republican, and that's what we need.......

Need to look past the big name Dem's and RINO and at the minor league candidates. You'll find NRA "A" rated canditates like Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo.

This is why our votes and support during the primaries matter.

Sounds like a damn good 10 points, I'm pulling for Ron Paul, but Elder sounds like a hell of a guy.

I would say that for most of them there is a two-point program:
1. Get elected.
2. Say and do whatever it takes to accomplish 1.

Wow! That is one hell of a platform. It seems that he's gotten everything he has from hard work and not hand-outs. It would appear that even non-libertarians can see most of his point.

I see his basic philosophy in these 10 points as being the old school Republican stance which says, "Pull yourself up by your bootstraps and stop begging for success."

I think that a lot of that is what it actually means to be American IMHO.
