In the Unlikely Event that You Care

October 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I explain my presidential preference in Reason’s 2008 election survey. My answer to the primary question seemed pretty representative of the respondents:

Living in the District of Columbia, I see little reason to mar my as-yet unblemished record of nonvoting. But if I lived in Virigina or Florida, I’d be ticking the box for Obama—not because of any great affection for Hopey McChangeypants, but because I’m terrified of what happens to the Republican Party if eight years of military adventurism, unfettered executive power, and disregard for civil liberties aren’t utterly repudiated at the polls.

    Well said, Julian. That’s certainly more articulate than my preferred declamation: “This shit must stop!”

    Jules, I love you. I don’t think I could have said it better myself. Not the first time you’ve spoken for me.
