You Go, Girl!

Hilly! Hilly! She's our girl! If she can't do it, we'll all hurl!

“Small town folk like us,” said Sen. Clinton, “don’t cling to God or guns because we’re bitter about the economy, as my opponent suggests. We believe in God because he’s real, and we keep and bear arms as the best insurance against tyrants who would strip our freedoms if they didn’t fear our collective power.”

To which sentiment do you object most strongly? The truth of God's existence, or the notion that our governors should fear us?

oh the substance is fine. it's just Hillary's attempt to connect with the everyman

"Whom among us does not enjoy NASCAR" didn't really work for the Dems in '04 as I recall.

could someone please explain why the same party that his traditionally supported gun ownership as the "best insurance against tyrants who would strip our freedoms if they didn’t fear our collective power" has spent the last 7 years eroding civil liberties and individual privacy? is it just cognitive dissonance?

i'm anticipating the obvious rejoinder of "what attempt to eroding civil liberties and individual privacy?". so i'll go ahead and throw out there:

- attempt to create a legal basis for denying habeus corpus
- erosion of the Geneva conventions
- warrantless spying on American citizens

Short answer? Because that's what governments do. If you want a government energetic and comprehensive enough to provide you with public education, welfare, social security, transit, and so on and so forth, then you get -- with no extra charge -- a government that finds it necessary to spy on you and protect itself from you.

actually, that's a pretty good answer.
