As the Republican and Democratic parties dive into the electoral process with their eyes closed and minds firmly set on neutral, should true believers in a limited government, from any political party, care one way or another about the result? Does it matter whether Hillary Clinton or Rudy Giuliani gets to call the White House home in 2009? Does it make any difference?
For our government, not especially.

There may not be much of a difference in "size of government" between Giuliani and HRC, but I sense that there is a difference in the way they would want that government to be used - and/or not used.
If you put a gun to my head and forced me to choose between the two, it's Giuliani in a no-brainer, regardless of his many warts.
Im not sure Giuliani will get the nomination. It is very early in the process, and there is still plenty of time for us to get a family values candidate.
No one is going to put a gun to your head. You are going to have to decide to support one of them, possibly based on the 'lesser of two evils' rule. Alternately you could support neither, or a third party, which would be a symbolic vote.
I'm close to wanting my fascist police state delivered by the most polarizing and evil figure I can find. That would be Hillary.
I'm tired of losing my rights, my country and my culture in increments. Let's get it on! Bring it, b*tch.
Now, why on earth do you want a "fascist police state delivered by the most polarizing and evil figure [you] can find"?
Sounds kind of massochistic to me, unless you would be part of the ruling politbureau of such a vicious regime (i. e., a "friend" of the b*tch, and therefore, at least you might think, exempted from the evil that she would impose upon everyone else). But in these types of regimes, the "in" people tend to become "out" people in a hurry - if they're permitted to live, that is. Plus, there might not be any future election to vote the b*tch out.
