Five Ft. Three

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.” ― Milton Friedman

A cross-post from Z-man’s blog

on January 31, 2008

Thanks Z-man for letting me cross-post this from your blog, People Who Masturbate Your Mind, a good analogy IMO:

The current crop of Republican presidential contenders, McCain, Romney and Huck and the lack of real influence of third parties reminds me of the playlists of radio stations today. You don’t really care for it but you have no choice, the songs are bland and slightly irritating but it’s what everyone is listening to so it has to be good. They keep playing it over and over, think The Fray, and so you brainwash yourself and try to get into it (McCain would be a slow waltz, think Lawrence Welk). You don’t have a CD player in your car (the 3rd Party) and you realize Maroon 5 is in that other party, Fergie’s over there too and as a rock-ribbed conservative you’re just depressed all the time.

“Sittin’ by the dock of the bay
watching all the conservatives go away,
Traveled a thousand miles from home
Just to make this third party my home.”
