Third Party, Worth A Look?

22 Jul 2008

On Tuesday’s show I had the chance to speak with former Congressman Bob Barr and, can I be honest, this guy gets it. I know his chance to win the Oval Office is about the same as Ron Paul, Ralph Nader or even Ross Perot and it’s really too bad because he hammers home valid points on today’s issues.

Iraq: he would start a drawn down immediately but would not provide a timeline. Smart. A stale congress: he would meet with them in open air settings so we would know exactly who is and is not doing their part. I like that. Social issues like abortion and gay marriage: keep the government out of our private lives which includes tax dollars to support them. Not bad. Terrorism: he would put sunset clauses on things the government needs to fight on this front, like the Patriot Act, but would remove them if they are no longer needed. Oh, and he likes the idea of better border security.

Right now, Barr has less than 5 percent of the nationwide vote compared to the well-oiled Obama and McCain machines who poll in the forties so his chances of winning are pretty slim. This is too bad because people are disenfranchised and quietly talking about a revolution. A leader from either big party might possibly be that late last hope for them—and the rest of us.

Darrell, hope I spelled it right, I got the chance to listen in on the Bob Barr take this morning. I have been up in the air on who to vote for, you have to pick the best of the two evils. Was going for McCain, but after this morning, I would have to go along with what Bob had to say. It kinda sounded like you liked his views also. I read your take on it above and its a shame that he dosen’t have a very good chance. You do a great job on your show, and its great to have the opportunity to listen in. You should do a show on this guy and see if we all can’t help spread the word about him. Once again great job and I enjoy listening to your show. Keep up the great work. Michael loyal listener.
