GET RID OF GOVERNMENT -- BUT FIRST MAKE ME PRESIDENT!June 15, 2011I consider all Republican debates time-fillers until New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie jumps in, but Monday night's debate did crystallize for me why I dislike libertarians. (Except one, who is a friend of mine and not crazy.)
They lure you in with talk of small government and then immediately start babbling about drug legalization or gay marriage.
"Get the government out of it" is a good and constitutionally correct answer to many questions, but it's not a one-size-fits-all answer to all questions.
It was a good answer, for example, when libertarian Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, was asked about government assistance to private enterprise and government involvement in the housing market.
But it's a chicken-s**t, I-don't-want-to-upset-my-video-store-clerk-base answer when it comes to gay marriage.
Asked about gay marriage, Paul said, in full:
"The federal government shouldn't be involved. I wouldn't support an amendment (prohibiting gay marriage). But let me suggest -- one of the ways to solve this ongoing debate about marriage, look up in the dictionary. We know what marriage is all about. But then, get the government out of it. ... Why doesn't it go to the church? And why doesn't it go to the individuals? I don't think government should give us a license to get married. It should be in the church."
If state governments stop officially registering marriages, then who gets to adopt? How are child support and child custody issues determined if the government doesn't recognize marriage? How about a private company's health care plans -- whom will those cover? Who has legal authority to issue "do not resuscitate" orders to doctors? (Of course, under Obamacare we won't be resuscitating anyone.)
Who inherits in the absence of a will? Who is entitled to a person's Social Security and Medicare benefits? How do you know if you're divorced and able to remarry? Where would liberals get their phony statistics about most marriages ending in divorce?Read More »
In my book "Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America," I make the case that liberals, and never conservatives, appeal to irrational mobs to attain power. There is, I now recall, one group of people who look like conservatives, but also appeal to the mob. They're called "libertarians."Read the rest at AnnCoulter.com

I consider all Republican debates time-fillers until New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie jumps in, but Monday night's debate did crystallize for me why I dislike libertarians. (Except one, who is a friend of mine and not crazy.)She's still pushing Christie...not one who embraces the Tea Party Movement.
Ron Paul, although able to talk a good game, is a kook.
Ann Coulter, while not a kook, is a hottie with a brain.
And not a word about excerpting.
Yes, social conservatives know this; candidates would do well for themselves to learn what the Christian answers are to these questions.
Otherwise, Christians can’t vote for them in good conscience.
June 30  Meet Ann Coulter...here is Ann from a PREVIOUS  appearance here:
[NIXON LIBRARY: live broadcast on KABC. L.A. FReepers will be there!]:
Ann has remarkably little faith in the ancient and flexible traditions of contract and common law. She doesn’t mention it but she is also a zealous backer of the failed War on Drugs which is another “exception” to her support for liberty.
kook=someone you disagree with.
Whomever the privately owned adoption agency determines is suitable.
How are child support and child custody issues determined if the government doesn't recognize marriage?
How are they done regarding children of unmarried parents, Ann? This is what's known in the trade as a "red herring".
How about a private company's health care plans -- whom will those cover?
Whomever the private insurance company choses to, Ann. That's why they're called "private".
Who has legal authority to issue "do not resuscitate"
Anyone named in the Power of Attorney, Ann. That's who.
Any other dumb questions Ms. Coulter?
Not likin’ the Coulter there much, eh? ;) :)
I consider all Republican debates time-fillers until New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie jumps in...Well, Ann **almost** has it right!
That SHOULD, of course. read:

It may not be the one-size-fits-all answer, but it is most certainly the de-facto answer if you believe in liberty. I will side with social conservatives over progressives 9 times out of 10. But I can promise you this, the rope that the progressives use to hang us all will be the one social conservatives helped weave.
I had a similar reaction when I heard Ron Paul’s statement.
At first it seems so reasonable—get the government out of it and let the church handle it. But it didn’t take me long to realize there are a lot of areas in life that would become pretty complicated if there was no legality to marriage.
And the more I thought about it, the more I thought Ron Paul’s “reasonable idea” opened up a big can of “unintended consequences” worms.
And the more I thought about it, I wondered if Ron Paul really thought about it beyond the sound bite. My guess is he didn’t.
But she says she won't be there?
But she will be here, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM. One half hour after the other one ends.
Video of this event will not be available online.

I don’t think Ron Paul is a kook. I think he’s a dangerous muzzie-loving, jew-hating extremist (though he does talk a good talk on the domestic issues).
He just looks like a kook because, well, he looks and talks funny.
But he’s worse than a kook. Much, much worse.

My wife is a Librarian. I’d put her in the ring against Coulter.
Any other dumb questions Ms. Coulter?I agree. She made a piss-poor case for a government standard in marriages.
But a case can be made.
It involves Western Civilization, Western values, and preventing the worst of all anti-Western cultural institutions: polygamy.
Gay marriage is the road to polygamy and the government has a role in preventing both.
“Ann Coulter, while not a kook, is a hottie with a brain.”
Atomic Annie has a brain ? Who’s gonna be her running mate ? Pinky ?!?
