“Potent Engines”: Washington on the Subversive Nature of Faction « For a Course of Years

Ahh… The frustration of knowing what should be, seeing what is, and being powerless to do anything about it. This person sound so much like my Poly Sci 101 term paper that it is almost frightening.

    Welcome! I took a quick tour of you site and was amused and impressed by some of your observations. Though I can’t say I would describe myself as a libertarian (much less a Libertarian), I often find that I have the best political discussions with them. We tend to part ways over civic mores, but we have fascinating parleys along the way. I even flirted with libertarianism on my road from “Republican” to “Originalist”. Alas, I eventually found its appeal chimerical and dissatisfying, as all the others before it. Only the Founders haven’t disappointed me yet.

    Feel free to stop by (and comment) whenever! I’ve been slow with new entries because of some family obligations, but I hope to pick up the pace soon. With fodder like the drivel spilling from the mouths of our present selection of “candidates” (read: “factional table scraps”), how can I resist? Each in his or her own special, ingratiating way exemplifies all the pitfalls of faction and Constitutional ignorance. What a sorry lot of pandering political harlots we have before us! I swear… walking into the voting booth in November will feel just like walking through a red light district.
