Mark Sanford: Growing “Libertarian Footprint” In Congress

Mark Sanford was an ahead-of-the-curve U.S. Congressman from 1995-2001 – consistently voting to protect American freedoms and free markets.

Mark Sanford was an ahead-of-the-curve U.S. Congressman from 1995-2001 – consistently voting to protect American freedoms and free markets. In fact his record on both of those fronts was damn near unimpeachable during his time in Washington, D.C.

What was impeachable (almost literally)? Sanford’s eight years as governor of South Carolina, during which he vacillated from crusading reformer to opportunistic hypocrite … experiencing frequent bouts of ‘status quo-itis” along the way.

Anyway, back in a representative position (as opposed to an executive one), Sanford appears to have largely rediscovered his bearings – once again emerging as a credible advocate for liberty, limited government and equality of economic opportunity.

And according to the ex-“Love Gov,” he’s got some company …

“You know, I’ve been gone from Congress for 13 years. I left here 13 years ago and just came back in June. I would say that there’s a bigger libertarian footprint than there was when I left. There’s a bigger liberty caucus, if you want to call it that,” Sanford told Rare Radio’s Kurt Wallace.  “I was just on the floor a few moments ago with Tom Massie of Kentucky and Justin Amash. The people like that – before, it was Ron Paul, certainly, and he stood out – but there wasn’t as big a footprint. There’s a much bigger liberty footprint than there was – still not enough to push us over the line on some of these spending and tax debates – but I think a growing influence relative to what I saw when I left here 13 years ago.”

Sanford is correct.

There is a growing nucleus of lawmakers who are committed to common sense fiscal policy, a reduced and reined in government and the preservation of our fundamental, constitutionally guaranteed liberties.

Several of these lawmakers – most notably U.S. Reps. Mick Mulvaney and Jeff Duncan – are members of the South Carolina legislative delegation.

The only problem? There are still far more establishment “Republicans” than libertarian-leaning fiscal conservatives – and they are habitually aligning with U.S. President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies on the critical fiscal issues of the day.

Until that changes, nothing in this country will change … except the size of the government’s debt, anyway.

The real footprint should be far up Sanford’s backside.

Growing libertarian footprint? What a crock. This is coming from the dude that votes no on all these bills that pass anyways, on a website that complains about all the big government stuff that Washington D.C. passes on a regular basis.

The “footprint” is about to get washed away as the ocean of irrelevancy switches to high tide and washes him and his ilk back out to sea.

Of course he is, that’s the “sea change” he is referring to.

The new method of governance by their Dear Leader Barack Obama is the “pen”, or executive order.

Now, in fairness to the Black Jesus…EO’s have been going on for some time…but most Presidents kept it on the DL and didn’t wave the Dictatorship in the face of the average Joe.

Now it’s considered “strong leadership” and “necessary” because even the Neocons can’t get all their members to go along with compromise on a consistent basis.

When Bush said, “I told all four that there are going to be some times where we don’t agree with each other, but that’s OK. If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator,” it was a big joke.(not really, cause he used EO’s too)

Obama has removed the “joke” part and his team has turned into something “noble”….lol

I guess the “new method” mention, which I meant sarcastically(which might have been clearer if you read my entire post…I even mentioned the EO’s under Bush..but maybe not).

Regardless, I agree with your post content that aside and would remind you that none of them are specifically “Constitutional” but the concept has never been challenged by the Judicial or Legislative branches.

Tom February 7, 2014 at 1:02 pm

You did not mean it sarcastically. You are at typical racist teanut who hates Obama,and would labeled him a dictator for doing what every other president in history has done, and glossing over the fact that Bush did it more than Obama.

Obama the Dictator February 7, 2014 at 1:11 pm

Shut up you Jackass:

“When Bush said, “I told all four that there are going to be some times where we don’t agree with each other, but that’s OK. If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I’m the dictator,” it was a big joke.(not really, cause he used EO’s too)”

Learn to fucking read moron.

Tom February 7, 2014 at 1:17 pm

The implication of the post is Bush was joking and Obama is a dictator. That is called glossing over what Bush did. So why don’t you learn to read. But, there really is no need. You are obviously a typical racist teanut as well. So reading comprehension is unnecessary. Hate does not require a lot of brain power.

Obama the Dictator February 7, 2014 at 1:18 pm

Whatever you douchebag, read into it whatever you want. If it helps your reality to demonize anyone who bashes Obama as a racist so be it, no reality necessary.

Tom February 7, 2014 at 1:31 pm

If you don’t want to be lumped in with racists don’t use language that appeals to racists, like “Black Jesus”. But I suspect you are comfortable in the presence of racists.

Obama the Dictator February 7, 2014 at 1:32 pm

So calling someone “Black” is racist now?

lol, you are a piece of work

Tom February 7, 2014 at 1:40 pm

Calling attention to someone’s minority status, which is unnecessary for the point you are making is a typical racist move. Why do it unless you are appealing to racists. Certainly you did not intend it in a positive way. This is especially true when it is a phrase frequently used by racist like “Black Jesus.” But you know that. As I said you are no doubt comfortable among racists.

Obama the Dictator February 7, 2014 at 1:49 pm

Holy Cow. Was Jesus black? You are textbook paranoid, seeing “racism” where ever you go. It must be tough to be you.

Next time I’ll try to not offend your racial sensibilities when I refer to the “White Jeremy Lin” or say “Wasssss upppp?”.

Actually, no I won’t, I really don’t give a shit what crazy people think.

Tom February 7, 2014 at 2:02 pm

To point out the obvious, referring to someone as “White Jeremy Lin” is not making fun of or attacking the character of that person. It would be difficult to work that into a sentence that was negative about the subject of the sentence. Wasss uppp, could be used in a racist manner or not, it would depend on context of the sentence.
Black Jesus, could theoretically be used in a sentence that was not racist, but I have never seen it happen, and certainly not in the way you just used it. As you used it, the reference would only appeal to racists. It is insulting to Obama and to black people in general.
Give it up, you don’t care what I think and I feel I know a racist when I hear one.

Can’t speak for OtD but “racist teanuts” are not at all typical. The most racist people I know are pandering, liberal democrats afraid of talking turkey and fixing our country. And do we really know what color Jesus was?

Tom February 7, 2014 at 6:20 pm

No offense, but I deal with teanuts all the time, and racist is quite typical. For example you. You see code words are easy to identify. For example, Pandering. To whom? Our country need to be fixed. How so? We need to take our country back. From whom? And things like liberals are afraid of talking turkey. How so? You don’t even know what most people you think are liberals actually believe, because you only listen to what other teanuts and Fox News and Rush Limbaugh tell you, people they identify as liberals believe.
You see teanuts are victims. They are being taken advantage of by somebody else; and that is the only reason they are not richer, more successful, or don’t have a better job. Typically they identify minorities as their abusers. They don’t know why, they just know that the lazy black people and the illegals are the root of their problems, and Obama is the symbol of all that. They never look to rich white people like the Koch Brothers or Howard Rich, who use them and manipulate them daily; and who have been stacking the deck against them for decades.

Proud teanut February 8, 2014 at 8:53 am

Sorry I didn’t respond sooner. I don’t watch much TV, but I DID want too see the opening ceremony of the Olympics.

First off, I believe we are all in this together. And from what I have seen in my travels, we are probably one of the MOST open and LEAST racist countries going because we are not homogenous. That most people here are likely to open their arms to just about anybody and any culture in welcome. But I believe that a country should have over-arching values, not over-arching EDICTS. I believe in a balance where both sides acknowledge the truths and deal with them and don’t “pander” for votes. The cards are only “stacked against you” and the game is only “rigged” if you are gambling. Notwithstanding this current economy, the promise is really, really out there (can’t you feel the momentum?), but only if you do not view yourself as a victim. Live a life of moderation, get educated to the best of your ability, don’t have kids before you can even support yourself, avoid lifestyle excesses, etc… When you do these things, you are better able to recover from crises- like our current economic crap sandwich. It isn’t fool proof. what is? But that is why we have safety nets, and re-training programs,
Now I know you are blowing a gasket right now mumbling “this is racist, racist, racist.” But when you do damaging things, no matter your background, you are usually doomed to failure. The long-term doesn’t look good for you and yours. We have known this for generation after generation. Most immigrants that come into our country understand this from the get go and they usually succeed against the so called “odds” because they don’t foolishly “gamble.” So unless you are a total infant, you figure it out NOT to do those things that hold you back.

Panderers/Pandering to Whom: Special Interests, both sides do it: cronies, labor unions, wall street gurus, self-proclaimed, self-serving leaders of the down-trodden, some wacky evangelicals, celebrities….

Our country needs to be fixed: It will always need tweaking to protect the vulnerable from the opportunists. We’ve got a lot of opportunists out there coming out of the woodwork exploiting vulnerable people as part of a paradigm-shifting global power grab. Again seen on both sides.

We need to take our country back: From the special interests, cronies, useful idiots, political elites, over-reaching, centralized government. Also see above. Seen throughout history. Seen in Russian history (Olympic reference) – that turned out well….

Teanuts that I know, are not victims in the least. But I can’t speak for those who identify themselves as such in your neck of the woods. My teanuts from ALL backgrounds, are too busy working (both spouses or 2 jobs), being thankful for the opportunities of citizenship, and doing their best to give back and live the so-called American dream, to ever identify as a “victim.” But I know we are frustrated, because we are told common sense is just so antiquated, so “racist….”

As long as we have a free and honest press, our liberties, such as free speech, the excesses of the Rich, Koch, Soros, Podesta, Obama, etc…whomever you pick will be moderated or revealed and discredited..

I don’t see that happening when you have Alinsky tactics and word police on the rise – too Stalinesque for my taste.

No. We know for a *fact* that he was not blonde and blue-eyed, and that his skin wasn’t pinkish white like Clay Aiken’s. He was a swarthy, tanned Jew. His hair was probably kinky too. Probably had a high-pitched voice like Jerry Lewis’ comedy voice… that we *don’t* know.

oh.. it’s not white bread. It’s white bred.

GrandTango February 8, 2014 at 10:01 am

Jesus was sickened by sin and injustice. He did not compromise on that. Physical appearance was irrelevant, unlike the democrat party…where skin color is ALL that matters…

Jesus’ spirit was clean and like all Christians should strive to be. And that is why liberals HATE Him to this day…They hate clean, because it entails value judgments…and liberals tell you filth is sanctified, when it’s not.

euwe max February 8, 2014 at 10:06 am

GrandTango February 8, 2014 at 10:23 am

You’d be the LAST person I’d take any analysis on the Gospel from…

Because: Liberals have figured out they cannot prevent Christianity, so they have slowed their fight against it. They have also incorporated the teachings of the Bible, like Charity (perverting it into welfare) and forgiveness, to perpetuate ANYTHING Goes behavior, and it’s OK…They have done this in an attempt to manipulate Christians. It actually works on far too many….

Jesus judged sin, and liberals will never accept anything they do, to strengthen their power and greed, as wrong…

And: Jesus knew bad people would pervert His message to false teaching, as liberals are trying.

Remember: you are not slick to the wise. We know: There is Nothing New under the Sun….God told us that…

euwe max February 8, 2014 at 10:51 am

Too bad you have no idea what the gospel is, what Jesus’ core message was, or how he felt about people who step over the poor, and work to enrich the false prophets.

GrandTango February 8, 2014 at 11:23 am

Again: I’ll not take judgement from you.

That said: Jesus’ message was far, far more than ministering to the poor. He was sent her to define sin so that it could be abandoned as a lifestyle..

And the reason aiding the poor was so important to Jesus, is because sin was the ailment that rendered the poor helpless, and at the mercy of the Greedy. Jesus forgave that sin, and taught the poor to clean up their lives.

That is a point liberals never incorporate as they pervert the mission of Jesus in their false dogma. Jesus said go and sin no more: Liberals are so arrogant and hateful of Godly things, they refuse to admit there is sin, because it would place some responsibility on them for their behavior. The Devil does not want them to change, as Jesus does. And liberals will always side w/ the Devil and w/ sinful behavior.

euwe max February 8, 2014 at 3:40 pm

The first step in witnessing is to lay out the path of salvation. We are all called to give a witness of our beliefs so that others can know how to avail themselves of life, and that more abundantly.

You’re wandering around spouting platitudes, because it’s obvious, it seems to me, you don’t have true discernment and understanding in your heart.

You’re simply repeating what you THINK sounds good and knowledgeable. It appears from reading what you write, that you are lost, as it relates to sincerity.

euwe max February 8, 2014 at 5:47 pm

So you have no witness?

And you call yourself a *Christian*?

The Great Commission instructs us to go into all lands and spread the good news of the gospel. This is your big chance! Surely you’ve read the bible, and understand the path to salvation, since Jesus is your personal Lord and Savior.

Of course, you know your date of baptism, and are willing to witness to others here, how your life was changed by giving your life to Jesus. Surely you know that Jesus commanded us to be a light to the world, not to keep it a secret, so that His message travels by word of mouth, as well as by our behavior.

Let me help you get started… you heard the gospel, or read the bible and then you…

I can’t help but notice that your responses aren’t psychotic. I’ve talked with numerous teanutbags on the internets over the past few years, and so far, without exception, they have very little connection with reality.

I have found they share certain traits:
1. They say they are Christian, but they have no idea what that means.
2. They have firm opposition to taxes, but have no idea what the alternative to taxes are.
3. They say they want leadership that is as stupid as they are, and can’t wait to demonstrate how stupid that actually is.
4. They are rude, and almost incomprehensible in their replies – leaving Fox News sound bites in puddles on the rug, and AM radio talking points in smelly logs near the door.
5. They are deliberately ignorant of facts, and refuse to visit any site that presents them.
6. They like to stimulate anger relating to race, sexual preference, and morality – towards liberals.

You, on the other hand, don’t seem to be off your meds, a “moonbat hunter,” or otherwise mentally disturbed.

How is this possible?

I think the growing footprint is Conservative. Boehner, a liberal-tarian, is about to lose his speaker’s job to Conservatives. Conservatives beat him on immigration and everything else.

The move is AWAY from Liberal-Tarians. But the Liberal-Tarians who are being rejected (Graham, McCain) are like liberals. they jump out an point the finger at everybody else…before anybody figures out who THEY are.

Sanford, Graham and McCain were joined at the hip. Sanford was slick enough to distance himself when he figured out what a liability liberal-tarianism is…

Newt was the BEST Speaker in the history of the House, because he ran HARD right against Clinton, and saved Clinton’s presidency. And greatly improved America.

This country has about one more shot to stop a total breakdown. Right now we hold on because of Conservatives in Congress.

If the GOP is to gain more power, it will be because of Conservative success. And the ONLY chance we have to heal the sickening mess Obama has made, is to elect more Conservatives. The Senate will be the cherry on top, and the chance to screw Obama even more.

Your rather vulgar response aside, I don’t think you can really say Newt got anything out of being Speaker except his current wife, and if you look at her – he didn’t get much. In fact, I’m not sure Newt really did much except call Bill late at night so they could compare what they were doing to the chicks on the side. Newt was often over heard to say “No, I don’t think she’ll agree to do that.”

You must be very ignorant of history, then.

Welfare reform and the Balanced Budget were two EXTREMELY successful accomplishments of the Newt-led GOP. They paved the way for a very good economic period.

Now you may want to play Dumb@$$, and deny that, as most brain-dead liberals do. But the facts are against you.

Rocky February 7, 2014 at 12:57 pm

Let’s see. Clinton cut the deficit from $495 billion to $155 billion before Newty even became speaker. And the Welfare reform only cut $33 billion, so OK – if you want to give Democrats the credit for the remaining $120 billion reduction, plus the $200 billion surplus – that works for me. You should try getting your history from real sources and not Fox – you might find out you get real facts then. Did you get laid off by Chase too?

GrandTango February 7, 2014 at 1:07 pm

Clinton INCREASED taxes. He did not DECREASE anything, unless you call agreeing w/ Conservatives to abandon leftwing, wasteful programs.

Unlike Obama, Clinton is white. He did not spit in the face of earning Americans for the sake of hatred and Revenge. He had to slant right to get re-elected. He did that, and the country benefited. Even leftists should know that…

If you don’t like it be a Conservative, and vote ONLY for Conservatives.

What’s sad, is that most of you are not sharp enough to see that the liberals are co-opting you.

If you are a liberal, you should be glad. Going the Liberal-Tarian route either gets a liberal-based candidate called an R, elected to help Obama,,,, (like Graham)…

Or fielding Liberal-Tarians as 3rd party candidates skims enough Conservative votes, the liberal D gets elected…(see Va. FITS was Giddy that McCauliffe schemed in)….and the Conservative lost. Not matter that the D will run the state into the ground.

Because Obama has failed so severely, Liberals, or Ds, have rendered themselves unfit for office. Running Liberal-tarians, like Graham, McCain, is your only chance to keep the power you’ve stolen.

Libertarians and Moderates, like Graham, McCain and Sanford, try to attract Conservatives, claiming fiscal accountability. It worked for 10 or more years..

But now we have no more margin for error because Obama is such a F*#k up…and moderates have helped him…

Libertarians HATE taxes, but they don’t like to be told anything is wrong. Moderates are the Same, except they spend w/ Liberals……Liberals are just as immoral as the libertarians and moderates…even though immorality is a BIG part of the problem.

Conservatives are not liars, they believe in telling you what is right and supporting it. Liberals, libertarians and moderates will lie to you, and tell you anything you want to hear…just to get elected, keep their power and fed the greed…(see Sanford, McCain, Graham and Obama)….

Liberals, libertarians and moderates have had their shot. You FAILED…If we don’t FINALLY give Conservatives a chance…we’re doomed…

I was reading recently that the 20 to 30+ yr. olds are turning more and more right wing to libertarian. I am personally glad to finally have someone else on my side. Obummer might turn out to be the great awakener in chief. He has plunged this once great country so far left so fast that those who up to this has let the govt. run itself are starting to wake up and smell the BS. The ruling elites have run US into the ground like I have been saying since 1964. Welcome aboard y’all. And along that line: RESTORE HONOR VOTE CONNOR.

Sanford is a typical taker. He could not make it in the real world so he gets a government job living on the backs of the taxpayers while sitting on his ass and accomplishing nothing. Sanford has taken more from this country than any of the takers he complains about. He is a worthless pos and an embarrassment to this State.

Along with his cohorts Mick Mulvaney and Jeff Duncan, also two people who decided they wanted a government check and government health care rather than working for a living. Two more worthless POSs who want to be supported by the taxpayers instead being productive citizens. They should have to live in ghettos just like the other welfare recipients and get their health care at the emergency room.

Were you sitting in a laundry mat, and picked up a copy of “Good News for Modern man?” Were you dragged to a meeting at the Assemblies of God, and while the flock was twirling in the isles, you responded to an altar call? This is your chance to be a witness, to show your gratitude to Jesus for the blood he shed for you… to be a light on the moutaintop! don’t get weak in the knees now…. this is what you were called to *do*!

Arizona Confronting Awkward Realization That Gay People Have Money, Buy Stuff

PHOENIX (The Borowitz Report) — The state of Arizona found itself in the middle of a conundrum today as it awoke to the awkward realization that gay people have money and buy stuff.

Just days after the Arizona legislature passed a law that would enable businesses to discriminate against gays, it emerged that gays spend billions of dollars in Arizona each year — an unexpected development that seemed to take many legislators by surprise.

Carol Foyler, a Tea Party Republican who supported the anti-gay law, said that the startling bombshell that gays play a role in the state’s economy put her and her fellow lawmakers “in a tight spot.”

“Quite frankly, we were blindsided by this,” she said. “We had no idea that gays had money and bought things just like regular people do.”

Acknowledging that her vote for the anti-gay law might have been calamitous for the state’s economy, Ms. Foyler placed the blame for it squarely on the shoulders of one group: the gays themselves.

“How was I supposed to know what gay people do with their money, etc., when I don’t personally know any gay people?” she asked. “I’m sorry, but it was up to the gays to tell us.”
