Barger for US Senate

Official campaign website of Al Barger, 2004 Indiana Libertarian Party candidate for US Senate

"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows that the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?" - James Madison, Federalist #62

"It's Politics!" on WKWH, 8-16-2004

Rush County Republican chair John McCane and former Democrat chair Dick Malcom host "It's Politics!" Monday nights on WKWH radio out of Rushville, Indiana. They graciously invited me on the show on August 16.

John McCane is quite the man about town. He's one of those fellows who seems to know everyone. He's assertive, but very friendly about it.

Unlike some of the national Democrats, particularly their spiritual leader Michael Moore, this local Democrat was reasonable and balanced as a human being. He exhibited no signs of foaming at the mouth in rabid hatred of the president. In short, he seemed like the nice, friendly Hoosier he no doubt is.

Mr. Malcom also had the most interesting piece of counterargument in the program, defending unconstitutional federal governmental involvement in education. Dick Malcom argued that the federal government was justified in getting involved with education because of Jim Crow. Southerners simply were not going to educate black folk, so Uncle Sam HAD to step in. That apparently justifies the continuing existence of the Department of Education, even with no constitutional authority.

I'm still not buying it, but that was a little bit different argument than what I'd heard before, at least.

Anyhow, you can hear the whole extravaganza.
