Q: Dr. Hurd, I agree with your political views and philosophy. So what should I tell people when they ask if I’m a Democrat or Republican?
A: Tell them what I say. “I’m not a Democrat because I believe in severely limited government, including a complete separation of the state and the economy. I’m not a Republican because they don’t mean a word of what they say–and those Republicans who do are seeking to establish a religious theocracy.”
This will shut people up. And it’s the truth.
