The movement in the blogosphere lately is thankfully a trend toward paring back federal spending, with Porkbusters going full, ahem, "boar." Hopefully the Republicans are feeling the heat from us constituents. There is certainly noise enough out there to attract attention.
But let's say that those of us in the "good government is small government" category stay home at the 2006 elections and Democrats win big. What did we just vote in? Stereotypically, spenders as well, just of a different stripe.
I say a pox on both their houses. I'm not sure that the libertarian party can be taken seriously, but holy cow the time is ripe for the creation and a serious alternative.
