Mr. Greenspan on NPR today

I listened to a radio interview with Allen Greenspan today on NPR.

I tend to think Allen Greenspan is an extremely intelligent man and I think he has a wonderful grasp on economics.

He surprised me a bit when he claimed to be part of the "Libertarian wing of the Republican Party." He went on to say he was in favor of smaller Government and thought civil liberties were important.

No wonder Greenspan did not get along with our current President. President Bush is TERRIBLE from both a size of Government standpoint as well as a Civil LIberties standpoint.

I have some news for Allen Greenspan:

Today's Republican Party stands for Larger Government and fewer civil liberties...

I took one main thing from the interview. Allen Greenspan agrees with my view that the largest threat to the US Economy is Medicare. He had especially harsh words for the "bi-partisan" prescription drug program passed in 2003.

So know we know the truth.
meanwhile, in tora bora, or wherever, Osama bin Laden walks free- the mastermind of 9-11; and his pal-ayman zawahiri.

Good interview wasn't it?

Doug about fell out of his chair when he heard Mr. Greenspan claim Libertarian views.

Then when they went on to discuss the potential conflict of the Libertarian views of less regulation v/s the power of his job, weellll, I got light headed. :)

It upsets me when we have intelligent, credible people like Alan Greenspan, Ron Paul, and others who could do our party so much good and yet continue to beat a dead horse (the Republicans).

Oh well...
