I've been a little disappointed with some of my "conservative" and "republican" friends lately.  I'm extremely disappointed with last night's results in Iowa.  Yes, the candidate I support came in a close 3rd place.  Ahead of him, however, was a man supported by the "Evangelical Christians" of that state because he is a stolid opponent of aborting unborn children.  That's great.  Valuing the sanctity of life is a wonderful attribute in a Presidential Candidate...except....well, why does he value unborn children more than a 19 year old Marine?  Why does he value that unborn child more than an Iranian child?  You see, these candidates who say they support the sanctity of life are all too ready to start dropping bombs and completely unwilling to sit down and talk to their potential combatants beforehand. 

The "winner" of last night's caucus is a man who supports Statist solutions to problems caused or escalated by none other than the State.  He has been branded as the one candidate who can beat the current disaster.  I can't honestly say that he wouldn't be at least as much of a, what's the point?  Why bother changing out one Statist for another? 

I would rather dare to strive for something great and fail than settle for shuffling the deck and playing the same game we've been playing for the past decade.
