Steve Moyer is an Internet Programmer and Liberal and an Also-ran for a U.S. Senate seat in Vermont. He is not Me.Background
A 48-year old internet programmer from Warren, Vermont is always running for a U.S. Senate in that state. Steve Moyer ran against the retiring Senator Jeffords in 2000 as an independent.
Moyer says, "I am running against the Republican party and for the cause of virtue in society."
Yet, when you visit his campaign Web site, Steve Moyer for U.S. Senate
, the first thing you see is the quoted link, "Ex-UN weapons inspector compares Blair and Bush to nazis
." I guess calling the leaders of the free world Nazis is Moyer's view of what passes for virtue in Vermont.
Come on now Steve, you say you're an Internet man, you should know by the rules of Internet message boards, the first one to throw down the Nazi card simply ends any logical discussion had.BACKGROUND
I came across Steve Moyer in a Google search on my own name, which also happens to be Steve Moyer. Imagine how appalled I was to find my name on Al-Jazeerah. Not to mention how totally aghast I was when I read Moyer's anti-American rhetoric posted there.
I won't take the time to debug Moyer's ideology other than to say that his ideas are the reason why people choose lawyers and business owners over programmers to be their government leaders.
Steve Moyer says that he grants anyone permission to post on the Intenet anything he has written. (see Fountainhead) However, having a bunch of name-calling, anti-administration ideas posted on Al-Jazeerah's Web site doesn't really help the causes of equal rights (most Arab countries treat 1/2 of their populations as female property); separation of church and state (most Arab countries governments are Islamic theocracies); or freedom of speech.
What help is it for an American to write negative things about our lifestyle, then approve of the way it is used by the mouthpiece of those who hate us.
In Why the US Must Leave Iraq, Moyer says the war in Iraq has been waged not for WMDs, or for freedom for the Iraqi people, but rather he says that the U.S. has gone to war because, "the United States government is bankrupt." Moyer goes on to talk about how US deficit has caused the United States to become a world agressor, saying that the U.S. is, "terrorizing the world into giving us more money to cover our increasing debts. The United States government is the biggest financial terrorist on the planet." Updated
