It’s Time for Pancakes

Bill Wood, while debating his opponents in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, summed up what I am guessing a lot of people are thinking these days:

Wood got the most lively response of the evening when, in his closing remarks, he compared Democrats to “scrambled eggs” and Republicans to “poached eggs.”

He then told the crowd, “It’s time for pancakes.”

    Hah – that is how you end a debate

  • undercover_anarchist

    Another very legit candidate. I like how he spells out a pro-immigration position in a very moderate manner. Issues-wise and approach-wise, this is one of the best candidates we have.

  • Michael H. Wilson

    Great of him to be up front on bring American troops home.
    This is an issue Libertarians could own, if more of an effort was made.
    Now if we could just get national to update the website.

    Pancakes have too high a glycemic index, especially with syrup. Where’s the oatmeal?

    Another good candidate for the LP, but another one who seems to be minimizing the use of the word “Libertarian” on his website.

  • Lex

    From his website: “Wood also highlighted his plan for tax reform. “I will make the first $20,000 that each American makes tax exempt,” said Wood. But he won’t stop there. Wood told voters that he would also exempt any amount of income spent on education and health care.”
    ————–

    Not a bad plan, but one or two Libertarians in Congress aren’t going to be able to do anything to change the laws, so it’s not a campaign promise anyone can deliver on.

    Any LP candidate can promise to vote against any tax increases, any new taxes (including the proposed 30% national sales tax), any violations of the Bill of Rights, funding for any undeclared wars, etc.

  • Timothy West

    so why run any LP candidates at all?

    A) If Congress is fairly-evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, then one or two Libertarians in Congress would serve as the swing vote.

    B) If we get one or two Libertarians in Congress one year, we’ll get three or four the next election, then ten or fifteen the election after that.

    I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether this is a pro-immigration position,

    From this candidate’s website:

    Ӣ Distinguish between legal and illegal immigrants
    Ӣ Secure American borders
    Ӣ Deny most government services to illegal immigrants
    Ӣ Make it easier for people to come here legally by streamlining paperwork and bureaucracy and raising legal immigration quotas

    For those of you who don’t keep up on this issue the U.S. has some 270,000 plus troops abroad on land and at sea and this does not include those in Iraq, Kuwait, or Afghanistan
    These troops are stationed in over 120 countries on about 700 military bases. There are plans to redeploy some of them to other countries and those new coutries will very much appreciate the economic impact those troops have.
    For example the Navy is bringingf back a sub tender from the Mediterranean and stationing it in Bremerton, Washington.
    While Bremerton is not a foreign country the ship will bring an estimated annual $55 million extra to the Bremerton economy and that is only for 100 personnel.
    Your guess is as good as mine as to the billions in benefits the U.S. military means to other nations.
    The DoD website that had this information up on it now seems to be permenatly down, so if anyone comes across another site please pass it on to me.

    Time to bring them home. This should be a key issue in all Libertarian campaigns!
