Move Over Fred...

I would have so much more respect for the the "moral conservative" movement if Alan Keyes were their philosophical leader. I'm not kidding.

Here is the best summary of his ideology I've ever seen, taken from a "We Need Alan Keyes for President" press release following the Ames Straw Poll:

"Asked what distinguishes Keyes from the rest of the Republican hopefuls, supporters note that he is the only potential nominee who bases all his political positions on clearly-articulated moral premises — including positions affecting jobs, taxes, the economy, national security, and interpretation of law, as well as life and marriage issues. He derives much of his moral perspective from the Declaration of Independence, which he emphasizes defines the role of government in clear moral terms that center in securing all citizens' God-given rights."
