I've recently had a slew of comments from an anonymous poster. I've resorted to deleting these comments from my blog and changing my settings so that all comments must be approved by me before being posted. I hate to do this, but one person can ruin it for everyone.

I don't mind opposing views being posted on my blog, but when a person insults me, bullies me, and questions my faith, I draw the line in the sand. If you disagree with me and want to say so, by all means do, but do it in an intellectual, respectful, and charitable manner. If you are incapable of this, don't bother wasting your time or mine, for your comments will be deleted!

Musings On Election Eve

On this, the eve of the 2008 U.S. general election, I thought I would offer my views. What is a monarchist to do in the world's "greatest" democracy?

Americans have but two choices before them: Barack Obama or John McCain. Yes, yes, I know there are other candidates running for president, but everyone knows that only the candidates put before us by the two major political parties have any chance of winning. For Catholics we have an abortion-on-demand proponent with a "Catholic" heretic as a running mate, or a war-mongering neo-con whose "pro-life" voting history is spotty at best. So what's a Catholic to do (no less a Catholic monarchist)?

Personally I'm voting for the Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin for president. He has absolutely no chance of winning, but at least I can vote for him and maintain my self respect. He is not only 100% pro-life on abortion and other life issues, but also is against the Iraq War and same-sex marriage. But why throw my vote away and let the really pro-abortion candidate possibly win? I remind you that one can never commit an evil so that good may come from it (i.e. vote for the lesser of two evils).

Whether McCain or Obama wins tomorrow, this monarchist will go to bed in the same position he was before: in a world that values so much that he abhors.
