The duel between Hillary and Obama will continue. John McCain clinches the Republican nomination. Mike Huckabee drops out of the race. These are the stories that made headlines today. Amid these developments there are a few bits of political news that I find truly worth celebrating. The absolute best news for this humble blogger came from Texas Congressional District #14, where the incumbent and champion of the Constitution, Dr. Ron Paul soundly trounced his neocon opponent, Chris Peden. The good doctor and his message of individual liberty and freedom from government coercion received 70% of the vote! What’s even better is that Dr. Paul’s primary win is essentially a general election triumph since he will not face a Democratic challenger in November. The establishment in Washington D.C. can now look forward to (at least) two more years of aggravation. And that truly does bring a smile to my face. It also makes me wonder. Ron Paul won convincingly in his home district where people actually know him. Just imagine what might have transpired in the presidential race if the mainstream media had given his campaign the attention it deserved.

In other electoral good news, the heroically anti-war Democrat from Ohio, Dennis Kucinich, has prevailed in his Congressional primary . Even though I don’t share his economic views, Kucinich has proven himself to be a principled defender of civil liberties and an outspoken critic of State aggression. It’s too bad Kucinich won’t be the Democratic nominee for president. I would have voted for him in the general election against “Mad Bomber” McCain.

Finally, I turn to New England for this glad tiding. The people of two small towns in Vermont voted to authorize police to arrest George W. Bush and Dick Cheney if the war criminals should set foot in their towns. The terrible twosome are charged with crimes against the Constitution. Now we need more people in D.C. with the nerve to hold our corrupt leaders accountable for the atrocities they’ve committed against humanity.

So there you have it. The big headlines are pretty much negligible. No, we didn’t witness any miracles. And certainly there is a very long way to go. But, from some perspectives yesterday was a pretty decent day for the cause of liberty.
