Al Gore, Constitutionalist?

Read Al Gore's Speech

I like what I see, but is it trustworthy? I am inclined to think so; I've always liked Al Gore (who did NOT say he invented the Internet). Read. Discuss. Please.

Despite my snarky comment on Gore on my blog, I too like his post-election 2000 political interventions. And I like your blog. Thanks for dropping by mine. For a fellow libertarian, from the right, your viewpoints on issues are ones I agree with.

Thanks for the comment. I am always looking for ways to facilitate the joining the left and right ends of the "north" half of the Nolan Chart, in the same manner the Republicans have managed to join the "north" and "south" ends of the right half of the chart.

I truly think if we could just get past the issue of whether or not there is such a thing as a "natural aristocracy", and focus instead on the simple fact that we want to minimize the impact of potentially coercive entities on our lives, libertarians on both the left and the right could get along (or at least coexist) a lot better than the authoritarians on both sides do. If this were successful, the Republican party would be *gutted*, with the "true conservatives" fleeing the company of Big Business Republicans and The Theocracy.
