Gitmo Is a Distraction

I was thinking about writing about this, when I went and checked out what was on Turns out, there was something there featuring Ron Paul on Gitmo.

I always thought the closing of Gitmo was nothing but a superficial, symbolic move that meant absolutely nothing at all. I honestly don't understand why anyone cares about this, since the people at Gitmo are still going to be imprisoned, and they will still be treated the same way, no matter where they are warehoused. This means nothing. It is a distraction and a waste of time to concern ourselves with this when Obama is busily threatening our liberties with his economic policies. Everyone on the GOP needs to leave this pointless nonsense alone and focus like a laser beam on protecting the only system that ever created liberty, prosperity, and goodwill among different groups: the free market. Perhaps they don't because they don't actually believe in it themselves. Perhaps we who support free markets should do was Lindsey Graham wants and leave the GOP. Let those Keynesians on the right rot with their Keynesian friends on the Left. I would love it if Lindsey Graham would go join his budy Arlen Specter in the DNC, where they can both hate liberty together.
