Nah, he's just in that "I dont vote............. for NOBODY" camp. I can understand that. I'm pretty much the same way. I just support RP as far as the debates go.

He IS a big supporter of Ron Paul though. Everytime someone brings up RP's name to Lew Rockwell, he has nothing but good things to say about him. Not a creep....... just doesn't really believe in politics.

I was thinking in terms of his racist attitudes.

Old news or not this is something that will always haunt him everytime he runs for president. So get ready for the smear campaign headed by the publication of these newsletters.

In the end, these are a big reason why he doesn't win, followed by the other charges of him being a "radical" out to lunch.

I think Racism will eventually just become a non-issue. Eventually everyone will have inter-bred and race will become impossible to distinguish. 

I am looking forward to that era.

For sure. I'll be moving there next month. Perhaps, you can hook me up with some libertarian bitches up there.

The Democrats and Republicans will smear anyone who gets nominated in any other party, major or minor. It's how business is done.

But, Ron Paul will not get elected, since to get elected he'd actually have to get nominated, which isn't going to happen.

He and Hoppe are the social conservatives of the Austrian School. There are others who are not social conservatives (Rothbard was a social liberal from what I remember), but they don't have much of a voice at the Mises Institute, sadly.

I agree, the neocons still have a firm grasp on the national committee of the Republican party. It would take a walk out of some of the national committee to make it feasible for Ron Paul to even get on the ballot of a third party. The NLP is a joke, even as a vehicle for education.

Limbaugh has evidently abandoned every principle he claimed to have in the early 90's.
I think Maher is a good guy to have in your libertarian corner. His audience isn't the choir.
I wish P.J. O'Rourke had more to say, he is very popular as a writer overseas. I haven't heard his opinion on Ron Paul yet. He is very pro-military, but otherwise has been quite libertarian for a while.
