We've had a few this past week or so.
1. Paul Lambert over at Hilliard schools voting "no" on the resolution of necessity. Keep in mind that this is the same Paul who commented on this blog that residents must have the chance to debate an issue on the way to the ballot box. So this means that Paul only voted "no" because he knew his vote would not keep the Hilliard issue off of the ballot. Principled? No.
2. Scott Galloway voting "no" the Olentangy ballot issue. Just like Paul, Gallowaste vote decided nothing. A lot of thunder but Galloway also stated the issue is needed. Principled? No.
3. The GOP for voting for repeal of Obamacare. They also knew their vote will not decide anything -- Obamacare will remain, at least until it can be morphed into Romneycare under a GOP president. If the GOP was true to its stance, they would be voting to repeal all of the unconstitutional nonsense from the last 150 years (since their party's founding). Principled? No.
Did anyone note that all above are Republicans -- in that they believe in Plato's Republic (right) instead of Rousseau's social contract (left)? None are advocating liberty. But did we expect as much?
