Thanks for sharing the KGO and eHarmony amazing stories, Terry.
Between Cindy Sheehan's condemnation of the two-party system and Ron
Paul's solid non-interventionist credentials during this time of war,
libertarians are in a position to gain some ground.
Some in my Peace groups are leaning toward Ron Paul, but lamenting
his "weak record on social issues," i.e. his free-market stance. Good
upportunity for those of us who belong to these groups to gently
mention some free market solutions to this war, as well as to our
national economy's dependence of the war machine.

Interesting times, indeed, Marcy! As I was driving home last night
LP Rafting trip to Calaveras County, I changed the radio to San
KGO when I came back into range, and heard their Sunday night talk
host, Karel, discussing the Democratic Canddate debate, and he
that Ron Paul was the only Republican he could ever support,
on his opposition to the war. If you listen to KGO with any
probably know that Karel is the most outspokenly liberal of all the
show hosts on the station. It was the first time I'd ever heard
name mentioned on that station outside of Gene Burns' program.
And even later on last night, as he was interviewing two attorneys
representing a lesbian woman who has filed a class action lawsuit
eHarmony.com because they are a Christian dating site, and do not
same-sex couples, Karel took eHarmony's side of the argument and
as a private company, they had the right to discriminate if they
chose to do
so. He also noted that the free market has responded with dozens of
gay-oriented matchmaking services to capture this opportunity that
heterosexual-oriented matchmaking services ignored (he specifically
mentioned Match.com, which allows clients to search for same-sex
partners,while eHarmonys' system doesn't include this option in
engine). Similar services can be found on gay.com and even
Perhaps one San Francisco liberal with a microphone has opened his
our peace oriented free market Libertarian ideas.

Just a thought: Ron Paul might be the only candidate benefiting
campaigning from a lot of political parties, and wouldn't it be
amazing if he ended up as the dark horse! Peace Republicans are
working for him, as are Peace Libertarians. But the surprising
support comes from Democrats who 1) will work for all Peace
candidates or 2) will work for the least likely Republican in hopes
of improving the Dem's chances in the General Election.
To add to the mix, Cindy Sheehan rails against the two party system
(read her "resignation letter"; it made me cry). And the Dems-laden
VotersforPeace.com is having second thoughts about the Democrats
being any different than Republicans.
Interesting times...interesting times.

Thursday night (5-31-07) 6PM pacific: Fred Smart of Evanston, Il. ;
Dede Farrell of Portland, Or. : and me Steve Harris of Charlotte,
will coordinate this weekly call. The three of us have branched out
from the Aaron Russo Group "America, Freedom to Fascism" to help
the word out about Ron Paul. We had Ron Paul on our AFTF National
call several months ago before he announced that he was running for
President and we had over 300 callers from across the Country. Fred
Smart has a daily radio show on the RBN radio network from Chicago.
