Paul Gravel in 2008?

An anti-War Republican and an anti-War Democrat. This won’t happen, but this article is interesting if a little too conspiratorial.

On a serious note, Sen. Gravel performed well on the anti-War front in the recent MSNPC debate. Rep. Kucinich is sincere and passionate, but I detect more conservative themes in Sen. Gravel’s leftist populism.

About Filmer

Filmer is the Conservative Times username for a paleoconservative political activist. For those of you who are unfamiliar with him, Sir. Robert Filmer (1588 - 1653) is a largely forgotten English political theorist who deserves more attention from conservative scholars. He was a (the?) main contemporary opponent to Locke and his social contract theory. Possibly as an artifact of Kirk, modern conservatives have largely stopped tracing conservative thought at Burke. This is unfortunate. A potential outcome of this is that you are just as likely to hear "conservatives" spouting Lockean silliness as you are liberals. Hopefully a revival of conservative interest in Filmer will be awakened by the increased interest in paleoconservatism.

    Just to clarify, I wasn’t suggesting I would support him. I, of course, support Ron Paul. I just think it is fun having him in the debates calling the other Democrats to task.
