The election in perspective

Letter to the Editor | Thursday, November 6, 2008

Obi-Wan: “I have something here for you. Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but Obama wouldn’t allow it. He feared you might follow the old Maverick on some damn fool idealistic crusade like your father did.”

Luke: “What is it?”

Obi-Wan: “Your father’s income. This is the weapon of a capitalist, not as clumsy or random as welfare; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the Republican Party was the guardian of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times … before Obama.”
