Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”     Thomas Paine,    Dissertation on First Principles of Government

Who Is The Sacramento Republicrat???

by Sacramento Republicrat


“Republicrat” or “Demopublican” (or the shorter “Democan”) are portmanteaus of the names of the two main political parties in the United States, the Republicans and the Democrats. The terms are used pejoratively by those on both the right and left who allege the policies of the two parties are in practice indistinguishable, and so form essentially one party with two names.

Well, I am a mid 30′s guy who has just about had enough with all of the political stereotyping.

If you claim to be “Conservative” or “Republican”, you catch flack from the “Left” for being too up tight. If you claim to be “Liberal” or “Democrat”, then you catch equal flack from the “Right”.

So, I became a Republicrat. I have always drifted to the Republican side when it involves “Fiscal Responsibility” and more moderate on “Social Issues”. It seems you are always expected to vote within your party. I do not always agree, so a Republicrat was the right choice.

It is true that we need a governing body, but that governing body does not need to be overly controlling or “In Your Face” all of the time.

As you will see on my personal blog, The Sacramento Republicrat, I have zero tolerance for crime against children. I am a supporter of Jessica’s Law. I have never been a “Political” type person. However, as I hit my thirties, I realized that politics did interest me. So, I started reading, listening and here I am.

I would like to thank Eric for his allowing me to be a contributor here at The Liberty Papers.

  3. Welcome! A little bit of time, and we might just convert you into (at the very least) a Republitarian!

  4. Welcome, SR! Once you get away from being a full-fledged republican, I think it’s hard to turn back. I used to consider myself a republitarian, but somewhere in the last few months I’ve come to see myself more as a libertarian (small “l”).
