If any of you have had the privelage to listen to this guy, you would enjoy his show. He has been a Libertarian for many years and as of a week ago Friday, he changed his political status from "Decline to state" to "Republican" I like to listen to Larry Elder because he sugar coats NOTHING! When having high political figures on his show he calls them to the carpet on issues he feels they are wrong on. one example is that he had former LA police chief Bernard Parks on the issue of gun control and smart gun technology. When Parks said that police officers were going to be exempt from "smart guns" , Larry asked "why?" Parks said because it would be too much of a risk, Larry asked why doesnt that risk apply to the average citizen? Parks had NO ANSWER. Elder has been on a mission to get Michael Moore on his show for quite some time as well as Maxine Waters. They both still lack the spine to show up. Rumor also has it that if RecallGrayDavis succeeds, Elder MAY throw his hat in the ring for governor of the state of California. Larry Elder is a STAUNCH supporter of RKBA and would be a GREAT spokesman on our side. He is also a lawyer so the man LOVES to argue and not budge from his views.

I read that one too. However I see his opponents are going to attack him since he wrote that chapter "Republicans and Democrats: About a dimes worth of difference"

They can attack all they want, but in the last few years since the book was published the difference has grown to about 25¢.

He can do nothing for the Republican Party but make it stronger and get more to our side.

Good riddance! He obviously fails to comprehend the greatness our nation would rise to with a Libertarian in charge, open borders and millions of Mexican immigrants selling their homegrown pot to our children working in the coal mines. Sellout! Clearly he's not intelligent enough to realize that the lesser of three evils is utopia. P.S. Harry Browne for President! (don't ask who's gonna be Defense Secretary, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs or Secretary of State - but they'll all be just as strong and wise as Harry Browne of course)

I'd never heard of Larry Elder until I read his book "The 10 things you can't say in America". Outstanding book!

Chalk me up as another American who is ready to declare himself a Republican. I have identified myself as Libertarian first and foremost for ten + years. The Libertarian party has had its problems, but their recent actions were absolutely unprincipled and shameful with regard to Iraq. F* 'em. Adam

They regurgitated all of the leftist, "useful idiot" anti-war BS that was coming from the more left-leaning sector. They essentially blamed the US for even being a terrorist target. I guess they would rather have us live a pre-indistrial revolution existence and be completely isolated from the world - to include trade-wise. The libertarian party used to be all about freeing up restrictions on international trade, perhaps they still are. But, if they cannot recognize the validity of using our armed forces to protect our interests both overseas AND domestically (after all, the event that started all of this was a terrorist attack ON OUR SOIL), then they have lost all credibility with ME. There had been other, smaller things in the past - such as a very poorly researched Reason magazine article right after the whole Elian Gonzales dabacle. The Libertarian party's recent anti-war stance clinched it for me though. I am now a Republican, though I am leary of the parties connections with the "religious right" (though I have had no issues with anything Bush has done in that regard) and have very liberal perspectives on immigration and drugs. Philosophically, I still consider myself an objectivist. Adam

I have been listening to Larry for years and he doesn't put up with the liberal crap. And he ALWAYS supports the 2nd Amendment. Read his book, "The ten things you can't say in America" and you will know where he is coming from. This book should be required reading for everyone. Reading the book is just like listening to him on the radio. By the way, his radio show is now nationwide...3-7 PM Calif time. He would get things done properly in Calif. I can't think of a better person to be governor.
