    that Snowden's a traitor because he happens to support Ron Paul, do ya, & that's Stormin's point.

    We DO need to defeat the Conservative Industrial Complex at a fundamental level, but we don't need to beat Snowden into submission--rather, his revelations are key to our defeating the Conservative Industrial Complex, as 4th Amendment violation is essentially conservative/authoritarian.

    Civil libertarianism is something every liberal ought to embrace fully.  Economic libertarianism must be differentiated from that, & as long as we don't become so hyperpartisan that anyone who self-describes as libertarian is immediately judged to be the latter, we can still ally with the former at any opportunity.

    (Re: that headscratching comment about weed...  surely you actually think it's OK, right?)

     

    It's time to start letting sleeping dinosaurs lie, lest we join them in extinction by our consumption of them.
