Real American heros don't suddenly become socialists/communists upon running for office. They fight to keep the rest of government from trampling the freedoms they supposedly fought for in the first place.



The real threat to liberty is never the foreign invader, it is the government in your own backyard.

Will any of these new policies conform to the highest law of the land (the Constitution) any better than they currently do? The answer is no. It would simply be rule by another man in leiu of the current one, but still rule by man, not law. American government will never be stuffed back into the Constitutional box from whence it escaped.

If you don't take a road trip on a motorcycle you're really missing out on something special.



I've ridden much longer in miles on a bike than I've ever driven in a car. 500 miles on a bike I'm pumped up and ready to go-500 in a car you'd have to drug me and tie me in the back seat to get me to do it.

Kerry fought to end a bad war which because of the draft was a tryany over many young men at the time. This took as much courage as his efforts in Vietnam.

I wrote an article for this very magazine a few months back that hasn't seen print yet on a Spiegler/LSL conversion I did on my '95 GPZ 1100. When it'll see "print" I can't say , but it is in the can and awaiting publication.

No I am a network guy.



And what ivory tower are you talking about? My classically liberal stance on government takes the view that no one should be in some "ivory tower" with special protections under the law. Perhaps you need to do a little reading to understand the ideas of natural law and negative rights. Any cursory reading of the writings of the founders plus the constitution they wrote will show you that I am exactly right. Are we going to have a constitution to obey or not? Should we just burn it and be done with it?

I read that page.



Kerry's stances on education, the environment, health care, and job creation all spell one thing: more federal control over the lives of Americans who have committed no force or fraud against another, less liberty for all, and greater federal expenditures---i.e. more wealth confiscation and redistribution.



The Constitution authorizes no federal involvement in any of these areas. Any and all federal programs and departments involved in these should be immediately terminated.



The Founders did not view the "public good" and individual liberty as two mutually exclusive ideas that needed to be balanced against one another. They viewed society as made up of individuals, and individual liberty was itself the "public good" that needed protection, not actions of benevolence that government provides for those that it perceives as "needy".

What do you think cruisers are for gossakes? You also look more manly & get more chicks. Plus, people don't honk at you when you do weirdo movements after drinking a bottle of Mad Dog.

I have a question for those with experience on both cruisers and sportbikes: I have had three bike so far, two ninja 500's and now a yzf600r. The only "cruiser" that I have ridden was a roommates honda rebel ( I know not exactly a manly big bore Harley). I hated it! I felt like I was sitting in a lazy boy recliner and had no control over the bike. On my bikes, my feet are under me, I can steer with my whole body. Am I alone in this, or is it something you just get used to?
