The ticket is stupid. Does this mean that, if I live in Kansas, I can't drive to the polling place in my own car if it has a political sticker on it? Good thing I live in Arizona, because in 2004 I had a "W" sticker on my car and drove to the polling place to vote. I guess in Kansas, I would have had to walk! That's absurd, and quite possibly a First Amendment issue. I am glad the cop was "uncomfortable" issuing the ticket - while he was doing his duty, at least he could apparently see the idiocy of the whole thing, too. I hope the judge laughs this thing out of court.
As for Democrats/liberals being the spawn of the devil, well, I know several liberals who are very fine people. My wife's cousin is a far-left liberal, yet she and I get along famously, and I thoroughly enjoy her company. Hell, if I were single and she wasn't gay, I'd date her. One night we sat up until dawn debating a dozen issues. In the end, neither of us changed our minds, but I concluded that while she is misled, she is also well-intentioned. Most liberals, I think, have good intentions. Many of them even want the same success for Americans than conservatives do - they just see a different way to achieve that goal. It's really too bad we talk past each other, rather than TO each other. So I don't hate liberals because they are liberals.
One of the problems with getting all the news from talk radio, right-wing websites, and to a lesser degree Fox News, is that only one side of any issue is generally presented. One of the things I learned on the border mission was that conservative talk radio doesn't tell the whole story. When I deployed to Yuma, all the talk radio righties were screaming that we needed a wall all the way across the southern border, and that the Border Patrol wanted such a wall. It simply wasn't true. Not one BP agent I talked to thought such a wall was a cost-effective solution, and they all thought the money could be better spent on other methods of apprehending illegal aliens. This was basically the opposite of what I was hearing on Arizona talk radio, and also Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, FreeRepublic.com, World Net Daily, etc. So I am very skeptical about the information I get from these sources.
I'm more of a "small L" libertarian than anything else, so I have disagreements with both major parties. I do think it will be easier to change the course of the Republican party back to one oriented toward personal responsibility, individual liberty, and successful foreign policy. That's why I always vote in GOP primaries, and really the only reason I am a registered Republican. Under the Bush administration, however, the GOP has gone 'round the bend with overly ambitious nation-building schemes and ridiculous spending on essentially liberal government programs. It'll be a long road back to Reagan/Goldwater conservatism.
