    LOL. Megyn Kelly just tried to say that Eric Cantor was very conservative on every other issue (other than Amnesty). What a joke. The establishment and neoconservatives are spinning hard!

    Hopefully they'll soon be doing that spinning in their metaphorical graves...

    David Brat loved No Child Left Behind.

    Educating America’s Children by Rachel Mathers and Dr. David Brat

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/229108176/...inia-Education


    Professor Brat: “it is my personal belief that NCLB (No Child Left Behind) is a good idea for this nation. “

    Candidate Brat: “I oppose top down approaches by the Federal Government such as Common Core and No Child Left Behind.”

    Naturally, after I found out Dave Brat was an economics professor, I was curious as to what kind of economics he subscribes to. Still don't know, but I doubt it is Austrian economics or I would probably at least recognize his name. If anyone is interested here is a list of his publications.
    God and Advanced Mammon — Can Theological Types Handle Usury and Capitalism?*(2011)*[30]NAEP Scores, Human Capital, and State Growth*(2009)*[31]A Global Kuznets Curve?*(1995)*[32]*(2004)*[33]Economic Growth and Institutions: The Rise and Fall of the Protestant Ethic?*(2004)*[34][35]Cross-Country R&D and Growth: Variations on a Theme of Mankiw-Romer-Weil*(1996)*

    Based on what he writes, he reminds me of my economics professor - who is very much libertarian.
    Few men have virtue enough to withstand the highest bidder. ~GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter, Aug. 17, 1779

    I'm still waiting to find out how many Diebold employees were fired after Cantor was beaten.










    "One thing my years in Washington taught me is that most politicians are followers, not leaders. Therefore we should not waste time and resources trying to educate politicians. Politicians will not support individual liberty and limited government unless and until they are forced to do so by the people," says Ron Paul."

    I haven't heard anything about Brat himself, but IIRC (according to something I saw in another thread), one of his two paid campaign staffers is an Austrian grad student. So he at least seems to be Austrian-friendly, even if he is neo-classical or Chicagoan or whatnot.

    "A free man must be able to endure it when his fellow men act and live otherwise than he considers proper. He must free himself from the habit, just as soon as something does not please him, of calling for the police." -- Ludwig von Mises, Liberalism (p. 55)

    "The evil that a man inflicts on his fellow man injures both - not only the one to whom it is done, but also the one who does it. Nothing corrupts a man so much as being an arm of the law and making men suffer. The lot of the subject is anxiety, a spirit of servility and fawning adulation; but the pharisaical self-righteousness, conceit, and arrogance of the master are no better. [...] The criminal has incurred the penalties of the law, but not the hate and sadism of the judge, the policeman, and the ever lynch-thirsty mob." -- Ludwig von Mises, Liberalism (p. 58) [bold emphasis added]

    He sort of sounds a bit like Rand. That is an asset to have that kind of voice.
    BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky Ė Washington liberals are trying to push through the so-called DREAM Act, which creates an official path to Democrat voter registration for 2 million college-age illegal immigrants.

    Cast it down among the eight millions of Negroes whose habits you know, whose
    fidelity and love you have tested in days when to have proved treacherous meant the ruin of your firesides.
