Bob Barr: “An agonizing choice”. I feel that he hit the nail right on the head with this article. In fact, this may be the first time ever that I have agreed with Bob Barr. For me, the hot button issue is the lack of fiscal conservatism. The fact that the rise in nondefense discretionary spending has been unprecedented under this president, with a Republican controlled Congress, is unacceptable. Couple this with the tax cut, and you have a recipe for fiscal disaster. I fundamentally do not understand what the thinking behind this could be. I’ve also had several people, some of them really smart folks, try to explain what they think the reasoning is. In every case the explanations have had massive holes in them. There is no excuse for this. It’s nice to see someone not afraid to express their opinion, even if it goes against their party, because the facts and situation dictates it.
