Ron Paul - "Libertarian"

by Alex Walker Tuesday, May. 29, 2007 at 7:06 AM

Ron Paul is hot in antiwar circles on account of his performance in the Republican presidential candidates debates as the only antiwar candidate in a field of Bushie super-hawks. Every moderate, liberal, progressive, or left activist and every Democrat, Green, or independent voter should Read This before jumping onto the bandwagon.

The Ron Paul that Ron Paul Doesn’t Want You to Know

A Personal Note

Personally, I have always been skeptical about the so-called libertarian crowd. I grew up in the South and lived through the civil rights revolution and these "libertarians" never lifted a finger in opposition to the gross abuse of power by Southern segregationist city, county, and state governments.

In the 1970s when I was a student at the very "conservative" University of Virginia, "libertarianism" was the perfect refuge for guys who wanted to enjoy the new sexual and personal freedoms of the Sixties while simultaneously defending authoritarian Southern "tradition." Under the banner of "libertarianism" they could be against the Vietnam-era draft and also against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. They could claim the "right" to smoke pot and happily indulge recreational sex and also the "right" of the State of Virginia to maintain V.M.I. as a all-male school and otherwise keep "the ladies " in their place without "interference" from "Big Gummint"

Here in Southern California today, some old "libertarians" are the meanest, nastiest Mexican-haters.

Ron Paul is of that generation. It's good he's causing Republicans grief, but let’s not get carried away with the media moment.
