Ron Paul Beats Guiliani, McCain in Illinois Straw Poll

Ron Paul has come in third place at %18.9 in the Republican Illinois straw poll. Paul beat McCain and Giuliani.

The pro-war GOP establishment will spin this away. But if Fox News and neocon talk radio had a shred of honesty, they'd henceforth treat Paul as a serious candidate who deserves to participate in all the debates, and who deserves full news coverage. But instead, the GOP neocons will continue to downplay and ignore Paul.

Colorful Libertarian

Okay, some libertarians are ... colorful. Here's one who defends cannibalism (provided one gives consent to being cannibalized). He stops short of advocating cannibalizing children, because, he says, children can't give "contractual consent."

Granted, this post isn't about the war. I just thought seeing this colorful character might enliven your day.

Rudy Giuliani -- The Fake Hero of 9/11

At the June 30 Los Angeles County LP convention, someone suggested the LP nominate Rudy Giuliani for president. That struck me as ... inappropriate. Everyone else seemed to agree.

It also gave me an idea for a cartoon. So I contacted my cyber-friend and cartoonist, British libertarian Stuart Smith of Graviton Creations.

I scripted a cartoon and sent it to him. He drew to perfection. It now appears in the August issue of California Freedom.

Peaceniks, feel free to pass it on.
