I was chosen as a panelist for the Grand Old Podcast, a project from the libertarian site, the League of Ordinary Gentlemen; the podcast focusing on such issues as the future of the Republican Party in the wake of the defeat of Mitt Romney, etc.
For the record, I have always said that I thought we had two very good candidates in play. I think that we came up with the lesser of the two, but that is irrelevant.
I still believe that conservatism has a still has a vital role in our society. The message itself is one of empowerment– either an individual is capable of bettering themselves, regardless of whether they happen to be “behind the 8 ball,” or people will be increasingly and forever dependent on the benevolent paternalism of an increasingly malevolent government.
To introduce the participants to readers who may not be familiar with the League (from the right, no pun intended): Trumwill, Will H. (self), Tom Van Dyke, Tim Kowal, Mike Dwyer, Elias Isquith (our moderator, flaming Leftist), (occasionally) Mark Thompson (one of the founders of the League), Dennis Sanders, and Burt Likko.
I wanted to play the Beatles tune “Blackbird” on my old Vox hollowbody as our theme song, but technical difficulties prevented me this time around.
Maybe next time.
Help the Soldiers!
