Former California Republican Party spokesman Patrick Dorinson has started a new blog, the Cowboy Libertarian.

Check it out.

Patrick is a reliable source of common sense — and a sense of humor — at a time when both are in perilously short supply on so many fronts.

Here’s a snippet of what he wrote on Saturday, the National Day of the American Cowboy:

Given where this country finds itself today, we could sure use a few more cowboys.

And there is a little of the cowboy in us all no matter where we hail from.

It is my hope that this blog will reach the cowboy in all of us and during these hard times we can remember that the important things in life are not how many things we acquire, but that we live a good life, take care of our families and remember that fixing this country is our responsibility not the government’s.

  • No New Taxes

    THERE NEEDS TO BE A LAW THAT STATES ;

    NO PUBLIC EMPLOYEE MAY RECIEVE MORE THAN 130% OF THE MEDIAN INCOME FOR THEIR SALARY OR RETIREMENT IN THE STATE THEY WORK IIN.

    THIS WOULD CAP THE OVERSPENDING OF PENSIONS AND SALARIES. IT WOULD ALSO ALLOW FOR BETTER PLANNING OF GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. IT ALSO WOULD MAKE PUPLIC EMPLOYEE UNIONS UNESSECARY. THE SAVINGS FOR TAXPAYERS WOULD BE ASTRONOMICAL and PUBLIC SERVICE WOULD COME BACK TO LEVELS NEEDED FOR TODAYS SOCIETY withoout new taxes…….

  • Allen Payton

    I just read some of the points in his blog. I’d add another characteristic of the cowboy and that is individual self-reliance.
    Now that’s something we all need to get back to. Not reliance on the government.

    Cowboys, as opposed to ranchers, were migrant farmhands in the old West. Many were illiterate.
