Chris Christie takes a shot at Libertarians

ASPEN, Colo. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Thursday offered a clear broadside against Republicans drifting toward a more libertarian view of foreign policy, lumping Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in with them and suggesting they explain their position to victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The House earlier this week narrowly voted against a reduction in funding for the National Security Agency’s program collecting Americans’ phone records, as libertarian-leaning members from both sides joined together to vote for the amendment.

“As a former prosecutor who was appointed by President George W. Bush on Sept. 10, 2001, I just want us to be really cautious, because this strain of libertarianism that’s going through both parties right now and making big headlines, I think, is a very dangerous thought,” Christie said.

Two Electoral College disasters in a row, so the Republicans double down on neo-conservatism.

Sooner they follow the Whigs into history the better

I sorta liked the anti-Gnostic's stuff until he published this in your forum. Liberals don't need him as an ally... they have plenty already in the "mainstream" media.

You seem to have this idea of the Republicans as a conservative party.

lannes said...

not MY idea... except for a few mavericks, Republicans hold themselves out as conservative. And the liberal so-called "mainstream" media, like the
Anti-Gnostic, maliciously hopes they will just go away.
