Rich Lowry notes: According to WSJ today, Republicans had a 28-point lead over Democrats as party best able to “control government spending” in 1996. Now, their lead is just 2 points!
Apparently I was prescient for leaving the Republican party back in 1992. I’ve never regretted it for a second, and I hope to welcome many former Republicans to the Christian Libertarian, Libertarian or Constitutional ranks in the coming year. What I’d really like to see is a functional alliance formed between my theoretical CL party and the two Freedom parties.
As for the Republicans, well, they don’t mean it, ladies and gentlemen. It’s sad, but it’s absolutely true.
