Arkley Responds

So Rob Arkley responds to my e-mail asking him to reconsider his opposition to Ranked Choice Voting. I get the feeling he didn't read the whole e-mail, if any of it. He accuses me of being an "extreme left winger" saying that I hate capitalism and corporations, and so on. Maybe he just read the first few lines and is confusing me with someone else? I don't know. Funny how some on the Left, who don't know that much about Libertarians either, often call Libertarians "extreme right wingers".

Seems to be an emerging strategy amongst some Republicans up here: Focus on calling everyone a commie or socialist. That should win some hearts and minds, whether the accusation is true or not, huh? I like my strategy better, that being supporting anyone or any group that has a good idea that will move us closer to a free society.

As I mentioned to Rob Arkley, in my response to him, libertarians tend to think the political spectrum is a little more complex than just Left or Right. To find out where you stand, try taking the World's Smallest Political Quiz at the Advocates for Self Government web page.

No. Despite the idea that e-mails are "public property", I feel that supposed private correspondence should remain private.

I've given the gist of the message. I don't want it showing up in the Times Standard. I want people to feel they can e-mail me without their e-mail being splattered all over the web.

Lame. Arkley needs to be exposed.

Seems to me Rob Arkley has already had more than enough of his e-mails published in local papers to "expose" him.
