True Love Travels on a Gravel Road


Dorian Davis and Brainwash take the little-explored Liberaltarian route in an interview with Mike Gravel. "I have a Libertarian streak," Gravel says.

DORIAN DAVIS: One question sure to come up in the HRC/LOGO debate on August 9 is the future of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." How do you stand out from the rest of the Democratic field on this?

SENATOR GRAVEL: Hillary promised to solve this problem in 1992 and wimped out. Now her defense is, "It was a transition policy." Transition, hell. It's been here for 14 years. Obama is doing the same thing. He says we need more troops. What we need to do is not throw soldiers out who have a different sexual orientation. Obama is drinking the Kool Aid, like all the other politicians who have bowed to the Military Industrial Complex.

Gravel also speaks a little more about the Green Fair Tax, which he mentioned when I met him in June. It doesn't sound much different than the Boortz-Linder-Thompson(?) tax, actually. (Warning: veiled reason magazine sales pitch.)
