On the upcoming election

Why don’t I write much on the political horse race? Because that’s all it is. A horse race, devoid of significance. Regardless of whether George Bush, or, to choose the leftmost Democrat for illustration’s sake, Howard Dean, are elected, there will be very little change in US government policy. Mild differences in tax rates, sure, a mild variance in judges nominated, of course.

But, in either case, will we leave the UN? Will the tax fraud be abjured? Will the troops stationed in 100 countries where we are not at war be brought home? Will Federal Reserve paper be replaced by money that can’t be inflated at will? Will abortion be banned? Will the 10th Amendment be obeyed? Will the right of the People to Petition be honored?

No. So, I don’t care who wins the next election, must less the Democratic nomination.
