Where Have All the Leaders Gone?

If we are to believe Paulson, a strong nation is built from the strength of independent, self-confident individuals who happily tag along a the heel of a leader who while patting their collective head, encourages and amuses them. What nonsense! Americans do not need nor want to be led by politicians. Americans want to earn their place in the world, free to follow their own interests, and own the results whether fabulous or disastrous. Either result is acceptable to Americans who know that enjoyment is possible and recovery is probable. Men with honor do not want to lead. They do not mind if their example is followed, but they do not desire the adoration of obsequious masses.

CompCon: Your posts may be too aloof for the average person. You might consider personalizing your comments to achieve a more persuasive tenor.

As the framers saw it government is not the defender of natural rights; government is the principle threat to natural rights.

What is the essence of America? America is not about economic and military power, and international prestige. America is about individual rights. Is there a majority, however slim, of Americans who believe in the transcendence of natural rights?

The question is how much "reform" does the R Party need? At what point does it transform into a different party with an old name? At what point does the old name become an obstacle to reform?

It is very likely that a sizable minority of D's are as disillusioned with the D Party, as many R's are with Ann's R Party. The reasons for such disillusionment may come from a different focus, but there are many overlapping sentiments. It seems logical to seek electoral advantage by capitalizing on coincidental sentiments. This logic never occurs to rabid partisans like Ann.

Joycey: Everything you cite comes from one source. It is all alleged. Trying a suspect in the tabloids is not the American way. If one person can be denied a fair trial, then anyone, even you, can be denied a fair trial.

". . . Tamerlan (killed in the post-Boston Marathon bombing shootout)" It has been a while, but the video I saw of the above event was not a "shootout", It was an execution of an unarmed suspect. The "police" fired hundreds of rounds from automatic weapons, to bring down one, static, unresistant man. Is that Malkin's definition of a shootout. I have virtually no interest in the sisters, or brother's Tsarnaev. My concern if for the truth. Malkin's primary interest seems to be smearing, as yet, un-convicted suspects, and their families. Her secondary purpose looks to be defending the indefensible, public abusing, unlawfully militarized police in Massachusetts. As Malkin points out, the trial begins soon. The least we can do is wait and see what evidence is presented. No one, even a law abiding, taxpaying, veteran, senior citizen like myself, who has had even scant contact with our legal system, as it (dis)functions today, can have much confidence that justice will prevail.

Of the ammunition available to those who disseminate truth, facts are most likely to miss the target.
