    An excellent answer with which I wholeheartedly agree:

    NRO: What convinced you that it would be impossible to reform the Republican party from within?

    BARR: The fact that the Republican party has evidenced absolutely no interest whatsoever in moving back toward concepts such as the rule of law and away from concepts such as the so-called unitary executive, which flies in the face of both common sense and constitutional history in terms of separation of powers — a Republican party that for several years while the party controlled both houses of Congress and the White House did not move in the direction of shrinking the size, the scope or the cost of government and has moved significantly and consistently to increase federal spending.

    I will keep an eye on Bob Barr. Edited because of precoffee posting caused momentary "Senioritis" that Cutter brought to our attention.

    Mr. Barr is probably right, but it's still the only choice if your vote means anything. We can still work toward electing conservatives, which can't be said for the Democrat party, at least to the same degree. I believe time is short anyway.

    Same reason Dems can't be reformed

    Because both parties are owned by the same people and nothing is going to change that isn't in their plan for us.
