Dear media:

Stop referring to Ron Paul as a "libertarian". He is not. He's a hyper-conservative neo-confederate who would gladly let state governments oppress women, minorities, and the poor.

That's not libertarianism.

Yeah, like you said, he's a Republican. What's the problem?

So basically all of his followers exist to get him a seat at a bargaining table where he sells his silence.

domino324: Well there you go. The rich man wins again. The only question is how? Was it straight cash, or were there some threats thrown in?


Nope, just yet another election cycle where RP siphons millions of dollars from naive pseudo-libertarians, hires friends and family for a year of luxury "campaigning", quits with a huge war chest left, and runs off into the sunset.

AGAIN.

I guess this is the free market at work.

Saiga410: mat catastrophe: That part of it fairly libertarian, but if you look at what Ron Paul and many other libertarians say, it appears they would be fine with state-level bans on abortion, or birth control, or whatever - which is the point that Zerochance made above.

On a conversation on federal powers????? OMFG shut everything down. Now ask any libertarian friend on whether your state and your local should have the power and most will say no.


Unless my "libertarian" friends are elected officials it does not matter what they say. The ones in power are neo-confederates who have an agenda to use the "limited government" malarkey as a backdoor to a states' rights system.

Sorry. The fact that he assigned his lawyers the job of making sure Ron Paul gets no voice at the convention while at the same time inviting Donald Trump to take part in whatever idiotic show they have planned only solidifies my opinion that Rmoney is a douche.

This man is correct. Libertarianism is whatever those who call themselves libertarians think is okay at the time. It's mostly a movement of reflexively contrary selfishness.

I don't think this can be stressed enough. RON PAUL is perfectly OK with the government shiatting all over your civil liberties as long as it happens on a state level.
