If anything, the Joe Lieberman endorsement of John McCain should raise serious questions about the legitimacy of the two-party system in this nation. It is telling and somewhat suspicious that a former Democratic vice presidential nominee is now openly endorsing a Republican presidential candidate. Now, if McCain doesn't win the Republican nomination, then what Republican do you think Lieberman will throw his support behind? Could he in good conscience back a Democrat for president in the end? (But hey: the Bushes help the Clintons)
And yes, the Socialist wing of the Democrat party are stomping their feet and grousing about Joe's endorsement - but so what - Joe votes like a Socialist along with the rest of them anyway. Lieberman keeps his Democrat status in committees in Washington, and then parades around like he is some sort of Independent. It's laughable. Sometimes it is really difficult to distinguish Congressional Republicans and Democrats, as they seem to both be interested in growing government, spending more tax money, trashing our Constitutional rights, and insuring their own job security in Washington.
On another note, Ron Paul got very quiet press yesterday for his incredible $6.4 million dollar haul in fundraising. The Tea Party was an amazing success and I will wager that the media will not be able to ignore him for much longer.
When these major corporate networks conspire to silence, minimize, and even mock a serious presidential runner, this tells me that Ron Paul is saying something that's ruffling the feathers of those who benefit from controlling the public.
There seems to be a groundswell happening, and people are fed up with what they are seeing coming out of Washington DC, especially in the form of McLieberCain shenanigans and the ineffectiveness of our Congress on many issues.
People seem to be fed up with flip-floppers and two-faced candidates.
Liberty is brewing.
