I visited his site years ago. It’s like Polutico V 2.0. When you get hired by CNN as the ‘token conservative’, you lose street cred amongst Freepers.

Erick is pretty much one of us. He was a strong ‘Anybody but Romney’ for all the reasons we had. He was a major backer of Perry’s campaign, for good or bad. IMO, Perry was the only realistic alternative in that field, but he crashed and burned real hard.

I do not always agree with Erickson, but I don’t dismiss him. He has the benefit of political management, so he’s not one of these slew of ‘experts’ on blogs serving both sides of the date filled with amateurs. He’s got some good bloggers on his site.

I think he wants to keep his page out of the secession discussion for two reasons: He saw the impending loss in the week ahead of the election and made the statement that ‘life goes on’ and family and friends are what is important; secondly, he doesn’t want his site filled with secession talk because it is largely bluster that only reflects bad on our side. Unless acts are truly taken that lead to secession, beyond bad legislation, public talk of the issues does little to help us.
