Excerpt from the DFC Missouri chapter's press release, written by Thomas L. Knapp:
"We advocate tax cuts and ending welfare," says Thomas Knapp, 38, of St. Louis, a member of the new DFC affiliate. "But we tend to favor cutting taxes from the bottom up instead of from the top down, and to place a higher priority on ending corporate welfare than on ending the food stamp program for the working poor."
Hot damn! I hope more Jeffersonian Democrats of that sort come out of the woodwork, and soon. I'm sick of a Democratic Party establishment that seems to think its only viable alternatives are either elitist social engineers like Ted Kennedy, or GOP-lite bukakkists like Joe Lieberman. I'm also sick of the kind of libertarian who gives people reason to dismiss us as pot-smoking Republicans, and the kind of Republican whose idea of the "free market" is "What's good for General Motors...."
