I'm not a Levin fan, but I'm loving this... His rant about 5:00 in is great.

I heard it tonight as well on 710 at 7:00p.m. He was definitely on a roll and I loved his rant on literally challenging David Gregory on any legal issue either on "Meet the depressed" or on Levin's show. Of course Gregory will never have a true conservative on. Levin would eat his lunch in a heartbeat.

I love the guy!!!

This is great. A Coalition of Libererians/Republicans is game over for the Democrats.

That's true though, Rand doesn't have to go on an inside-the-beltway program when he's running for the State of Kentucky.

One could only hope. It will take the repubs opening up to the ideas that they claim to represent both on domestic and foreign policy. I'd really like to see that happen. You'd have a balance very similar to 30 years ago, since a majority of the two big tent parties have shifted left over the last several years. :clap:

The 2008 elections:

That's just the 2008 election. Let's go back one more.

No I got it from direct observation. I also know my definitions.

BTW Rand is NOT a libertarian. He's a small govt conservative. They advocate for more govt than a libertarian, but still not a lot. The two have overlaps. His Dad is a libertarian though.

So how many voted for a libertarian in an election is irrelevant.

Fantastic read. You will enjoy. It came out close to a year ago and was No.1 on the NYTBL for like 13wks and not a word from any liberal outlets except Fox. Levin and Beck ruled last yr and very little coverage or TV interviews but it is not surprising.:rolleyes:

Oh really? Out of all the rogue nations North Korea is the first under the Obama regime to thumb their nose at us by sinking a South Korean carrier Mar 26.

Unless of course you want to count the 2 terrorist attacks on our soil i.e. Army recruiting office in Ark and Ft. Hood. And the 2 "attempted" terrorist attacks i.e. Xmas day bomber and the Times Square bomber then you have to say Pakistan, Afghanistan,Iran,Syria, etc.........is where the action is at but that is not where it is at for your side of the aisle.Terrorists are battin 500. 2 for 4 so far under the "isolated whack job incident" Obama regime.

Something tells me the terrorist batting average is going to be going higher:doh!:

Although North Korea has embroiled us in an intriguing situation, no doubt. I don't know what the next move is with them.

I don't believe centrist Dems feel everyone needs to pay for them. But you don't have to get much further to the Left of them before that mentality takes shape. I'll give you a real time example.

My brother, college graduate, substitute teacher's license, spends his days sleeping and his nights "gigging" in coffee shops in his 3 man flamenco band. He has no insurance, no personal residence and very little income. Well, he broke his ankle. He whines and cried that the emergency room charged him to set his ankle and that he could only go back to the emergency room to have the leg checked on and cast cut off because he didn't have insurance to go to a regular doctor. Although he ignores the fact he could have gone to a regular doctor if he had cash in hand, he felt he had the right to have his entire oredeal treated with little if any cost to him because he is a "tax payer". LMAO

I didn't exactly make a claim, as much as I was making a casual comment based on memory. I said I didn't know where I had seen it, but that more don't vote than do. In fact I believe I posted some numbers on voter turnout previously. Maybe that's were I saw it. So there was no absolute certain statement.

I routinely check claims made by others when I'm suspicious in order to challenge them. Your asking me came off more as a statement to imply it was not valid. Of course, you knew that. Hence your inability to type in google "voter turnout." As far as I recall it's been the mantra of the left that voter turnout had been in decline because this is bad to them and a problem. Just look at the numbers since 1960 to see that's true, despite its upsurge again in 2008.

It's generally true....about every other year
