Thanks for your opinion, and for answering my last question.
Henry, Is it the people or the people the people elect? “A tyrant…is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.”

Sorry. Fiction, presented as fiction, is not the same as a lie. Fiction can have any message . . . even a strong moral, conservative one. Have you ever read Louis L’Amour?

"The battle for the world is the battle for definitions" . . . Thomas Szasz
When WWII ended in a mushroom cloud, Eisenhower and others thought it was the end of all War. Nuclear weapons presented a “balance of terror” no rational mind wished to confront. So, starting with Korea, we changed the rules and the name of the game to “police action.” No nukes allowed. Today it’s okay if 100,000 die over a 13 year period just so that many don’t die in one day from one blast.

What happened to the old Westerns? White hat vs. Black hat. Good vs. evil. Always a strong moral, conservative message. My wife and I still watch Gunsmoke re-runs when we get tired of stupid sitcoms; and still read a Luis L’Amour book occasionally.

Reagan was a Goldwater Republican and that’s close enough to libertarian to suit me.

Did Jesus?
Early into his column, Chapman writes: “White teens have little fear of police, but black teens generally view them with mistrust.” If Chapman didn’t have Al Sharpton-like color bias he could have written: “Law abiding teens have little fear of police, but criminal teens generally view them with mistrust.” . . . . The rest to the column was no better.

Good, common sense message. Those on the Christian Right who can’t let go of the abortion and gay marriage issue should take a lesson from Jesus of Nazareth who simply said: “Go and sin no more.” Then He shook the dust from his feet and left without throwing a stone.
