  1. Re: Tom Mullins — Landmines on the (U.S.—Mexican) Border

    Why is the military complex and our occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan never mentioned on this blog?

    I think you answered your own question in the preceding sentences (not that I disagree at all) —

    (1) Republicans in NM are not willing to accept the ‘ex-vet against the war’ positioning (see John Kerry)
    (2) NM is very dependent on the federal dollar spent in this state on military. Kirkland, after all, is the state’s number one employer.

    On your point (1), I think that the big-government hawks of the GOP let Larry Bailey and Co. conduct a Swift Boat-type smear campaign against Adam. Since Mullins gave every appearance (to me, at least) of being quite eager to jump on board the smear campaign, while he says he’s not part of the GOP Machine, he’s doing its bidding, and thus deserves the title of Coggie (see above).

    Thus Mullins seems (again, to me) to be quite content to be an unwitting Coggie, and I cannot in good conscience extend the slightest increment of support to the Mullins Campaign.

    Isn’t repelling invasions a big part of what the Second Amendment is all about? Let’s not look to Washington DC for answers — that’s a big part of how the “border problem” got started in the first place. If we cleaned out the District of Criminals, ended the welfare state and ended Drug Prohibition, the “border problem” would cease being any sort of problem.

    Freedom is the answer — what’s the question?
